In Which I Agree with DNJ Editorial

March 29, 2010
By

Yes I say to the DNJ’s editorial regarding LaVergne’s decision to make discrimination a zero-tolerance offense. La Vergne’s 169 city employees are also undergoing diversity training.  Ridding City Hall and all La Vergne departments of racist language and discrimination is important if city employees are to treat each other with respect and to provide residents with the service they deserve. No one should have to listen to or be subjected to any kind of discrimination regarding race, color, sex, religion, disability, marital status, family status, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, or national origin.  These are the rules we must abide by…

I received this notice from the city planner recently and feel it’s VERY IMPORTANT for citizens to attend this public hearing.  Scheduled on Tuesday, April 6th at 6:30 p.m., the hearing will be at City Hall located at 5093 Murfreesboro Road in LaVergne.

These districts are up for 2nd and final reading on April 6th. The first reading passed unanimously. This is something we really want the public and property owners to be aware…

HUD Houses for Sale

In response to the numerous inquiries I get about HUD houses for sale, here’s some information.  HUD is the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and they define their homes as follows, “A HUD home is a 1 to 4 unit residential property acquired by HUD as a result of a foreclosure action on an FHA-insured mortgage. HUD becomes the property owner and offers it for sale to recover the loss on the foreclosure claim.” People often view HUD owned houses as “bargains” – and sometimes they are.  But don’t think you’ll be buying something for $100 because HUD…

Waldron Elementary Needs New Playground

Roy Waldron Elementary School holds a dear place in my heart.  I served as PTO president when my youngest daughter attended back oh-so-many years ago.  I still feel a sense of pride that we were able to raise the money to build a fence around the playground because it gave me the heebie-jeebies that kids were playing right next to the street without that added protection. The school needs our help again.  Here’s what I received from Angie Mayes today, Please help Roy Waldron School receive a $25,000 grant from Pepsi to build a playground.
