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. After reading the Top 10 News Stories of the Year in the Murfreesboro Post and seeing how the planting of a ginseng seed was bigger news than ANYTHING that happened in LaVergne, the editors of This is LaVergne decided to create our own Top 10 New Stories just for LaVergne.

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…

What’s happening, La Vergne?

Hellooooooo, La Vergne!  How ya doing?  Are you getting used to getting up earlier with the kiddos or leaving a bit earlier because of the increased school traffic?  My daughter’s bus arrives two minutes earlier this year and it has really thrown our house for a loop.  You wouldn’t think two minutes would be a big deal but it is! Speaking of back to school, I am so excited to attend our Back to School bash on September 1, 2013 at Veterans Memorial Park.  If you remember, due to weather, we had to postpone our fireworks show in July.  Our…

A busy week coming up

Hi gang!  How’s your summer been?  I haven’t written much because mine has been a bit insane.  But, hopefully with school starting next week we can all get back into the groove. I wanted to tell you about a few goings on here in La Vergne.  First up, this Saturday, the 3rd, Box 100 is having a fundraiser yard sale from 8a-3p.  Grace Church at the corner of Stones River and Old Nashville has generously allowed them to use the parking lot for the sale.  Big THANK YOU to them!  Box 100 members have been gathering stuff from far and…
