2013 LaVergne Loves! The Voting Post!

How it works: You can vote once daily, in any category or all the categories, but not more than once in a 24 hour period.  In the “People” categories, we included all nominees for voting because there were so many single nominations that it would have been unfair for us to “pick” who was and was not included.   In other categories, there are up to five nominees, except a few that were cut out due no nominations at all. Some categories had only one nominee each, so we would like to congratulate the following on their early wins: Favorite Handyman:…

I Have a Dream

Monday marks Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Of course everyone has heard of the famous civil rights leader.  We know the speech, Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia. Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee. Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring. And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men,…

A New Calm

My friend told me one very simple method to get the attention of your child… go to the bathroom.  With kids in the house, going to the bathroom without interruption is rare.  And that’s not even close to being the hardest part of raising kids. Aside from affording them, it’s the fighting, being stubborn about not doing homework, back-talk, yelling, screaming, and the list goes on. If this describes YOUR house, a solution may be just two days away.  Parents can attend a free workshop on Saturday at LaVergne Middle School from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. called “Celebrate Calm.” …

2013 La Vergne Loves! Nomination Post!

Last year we had a lot of fun with the first-ever La Vergne Loves contest.  Our pal Ivy started it because there’s a lot to love about La Vergne, plus we just didn’t really get our time in the spotlight with the Ruthies or the Best of Nashville.  With those votes, we are outnumbered population-wise by Smyrna, Murfreesboro, and of course Nashville.  Therefore La Vergne Loves asks our readers to pick the service providers, restaurants, neighborhoods, and other lovely things specific to and about La Vergne! Here’s how it works We have categories and we need nominees! Use the “Complain…

Ask My Dog: Why is This is LaVergne So Hateful?

January 2, 2013

Dear Tiny, Why is This is LaVergne so very very hateful? They pick on kids and don’t know what they’re talking about when they say children in the community have not committed suicide because it’s nowhere on Google! And don’t they realize that a drug bust is the same thing as a meth lab?  They are incompetent! And don’t they realize how evil and horrible the entire league is? Signed, NOT a Soccer Mom So Don’t Even Go There, Nuh-Uh. Tiny says: Whether my person is incompetent or not, she manages to feed me every single day and I get…

Guest Column: Black Eyed Pea Cakes

Black Eyed Pea Cakes By Kathy T. First, my thanks to Ivy and Lola for inviting me to write a guest column. Of course I steer away from any city-related posts in order to avoid any potential conflicts of interest, but I’m excited to share a New Year’s Day recipe instead!  I only cooked it because Ivy made the suggestion and it sounded pretty good.  She found a recipe at Publix, but the one I used originated with Paula Deen. Here is her ingredient list with my suggested corrections: 3 cup left over cooked black eyed peas 1-2 cups of…
