I wanted to provide a quick update to readers about the HobNob and This is LaVergne relationship.  You spoke, I listened.  This is LaVergne lives. I have offered to HobNob to syndicate our content because I still remain convinced that it will be a great opportunity for our local retailers to get positive information out about their food, merchandise, and services.  I believe that having an opportunity to advertise to our own community outside of the traditional print media will appeal to other retail businesses to come to our community and yes we do need retail. After meeting last week…

In a a couple of conversations this week, I was struck by how many kids we have in LaVergne who may be hungry and how many families need help now for the basic necessities like housing and food. First, let me share this link that may provide answers people need when they have nowhere else to turn for housing.  211.org is an easy-to-remember number that help people find resources for basic human needs like locating food banks, clothing, shelters, rent assistance, and utility assistance.  In addition, there is info on physical and mental health resources, employment support, help for the…
