Big Retail Making Its Way to LaVergne

Walmart Site

For years people of LaVergne have been asking for retail. We want to be able to shop for clothes, shoes, and other items in our own city.  With all due respect to our neighbors next door, we are tired of giving our sales tax revenue to Smyrna, Murfreesboro, and Nashville. First there were rumors. We had been hearing that a new Walmart was going on Sam Ridley Parkway. There was the rumor that Nissan bought the Walmart on Enon Springs Rd.  We heard one alderman say that Walmart wouldn’t come to LaVergne because of sinkholes!  So amid all the rumors…

Happy February 2014, LaVergne! A lot of news has been coming out of the city in the last couple of weeks, so it’s time to share some of the excitement, some of the weird, and some key personnel additions. Let’s begin with the weird. The city released a statement yesterday about a drone flying over houses in neighborhoods.  Channel 5 did a very in-depth story about it and we have to give mad props to local resident Carolyn Hickerson for both reporting it to the police and for very intelligently vocalizing why this is a concern.  From the article, Hickerson…

The recent uproar from comments quacked by a television personality* and the subsequent fallout helps demonstrate the point that you do have the freedom to talk without fear of going to jail in the U.S.  But be warned that when you do talk and your conversation is filled with inaccuracies, false accusations, and hatred – well, others have the right to speak in defense and/or call you out on it.  If you are into publicly shaming folks, then you can expect a push back because there are still decent people in this world who are willing to defend the truth.…

2013 Year in Review

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Actually it has been a pretty decent year here in LaVergne – from the LHS Marching Band winning the regional championship for the second year in a row to the economy showing steady improvement, we aren’t complaining.

Hello La Vergne! I trust you all have had a wonderful holiday, have enjoyed family, or just simply been a grinch, whichever floats your boat.  I’ve been wondering, reflecting mostly on this past year.  Things I’ve done, people I’ve met, Places that I’ve visited. This last  year has been quite interesting for me. Between work and well more work, it’s surprising at all I’ve had time to do anything.  A few highlights of my year, celebrating New Years Downtown(doing that again this year,) Bowling tournaments out of town, visiting New Orleans, going camping(in a camper not a tent) and most…
