Welcome Theresa to the Writing Team!

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Theresa Hesse, the newest writer/editor of This is LaVergne. Theresa has been a resident of our fair city for nearly 16 years, so has seen it grow and change for nearly two decades. When she moved here, there was but one traffic light.  There was a grocery store where CVS is now located along with Food Lion, and TeeGees was the only restaurant. Theresa is the mother of two precious kids:  Robert (5th grade) and Robin (kindergarten).  Robin is currently the “Little Miss People’s Choice” of LaVergne and currently up…

Congratulations to Choraliers!

This has been one exciting weekend for the city of La Vergne!  Egg Hunt (and awesome video) first. Beautiful weather for today.

Last Thursday the city launched a huge effort to locate a missing 12-year old boy.  At least 25 volunteers with Box 100, along with 25 official emergency responders, showed up at the Hurricane Creek Boat Ramp to search.  Fortune smiled and the young man was found before dark… thermal cameras and blood hounds were on their way from the county but not needed. The next day was much sadder when a young couple was found shot in their home.  I have absolutely no way of knowing this nor do I speak on behalf of the city when I say that…

Waldron Road Update

Alderman Tom Broeker provided an update on the old TiLaV site about the progress being made on Waldron Road.  We both felt sharing the information here would be beneficial to everyone … since we all sometimes get stuck in the traffic, wave our fists in despair, and cry, “Whyyyyyyyy?!?!  How did that car in front of me pass the emissions testing?  *cough*”  The update from Mr. Broeker, Ok, Here is the scoop on Waldron Rd. While the last “official date” to finish this project is still November of this year, to put it to you straight, it appears it could…

Another Storm Is Coming

February 27, 2011

I was just asked to notify residents that the Box 100 volunteers are opening the Multipurpose Building behind City Hall again tonight because of severe weather approaching.  The building will be available for residents seeking shelter beginning at 10:00 p.m. and will remain open as long as needed. Box 100 is a volunteer unit that supports first responder personnel when they are on the scene of major emergencies.  Their work is not unlike that of the Red Cross in that they provide shelter, nourishment, water, etc. in times of need, but their efforts are mostly directed toward aiding fire, police,…
