How many snow days can our students miss in Rutherford County before make-up days are added at the end of the year?  Or do they take away Spring Break?  (The horrors!). No school again tomorrow…  sigh.

Ch Ch Ch Changes Coming to TiLaV

Just as the seasons go round and round, we are riding on the carousel of life.   Less than two weeks ago we celebrated the fourth anniversary of This is LaVergne.  This site was started with the intention of sharing information about the city, talking with neighbors, observing our government, and building community.   It’s my belief that we’ve been successful in establishing dialogue with many, ruffling feathers of others, and generating discussion among residents. However, my hope was we could eventually expand the site to take the role of an online magazine for the city that would feature restaurant reviews, business…

Smyrna Bowling Center My friend – the third shift manager of the Smyrna Bowling Center – just updated his facebook status to say they are reopening tonight at 5:00 p.m.  There will be fewer lanes, of course, but hip hip hooray anyway!

I got an email from a friend who said The World’s Strictest Parents is casting again.  This is short notice, but Producers are seeking kids ages 15-17 with real issues of teenage rebellion.  For additional information about local casting please contact Lauren S..

The kids are shaking in their boots at the specter of Mr. Ash moving from LaVergne Middle School to LaVergne High.  Mr. Ash was very strict at LMS so students who’ve had him are a little nervous to see if he’ll be the same when he moves to the high school next month.  According to the DNJ via school board press release, the change comes because of academic concerns, La Vergne High Principal Melvin Daniels will be reassigned next school year because of “continued academic concerns” at the school, the school system announced Tuesday. Daniels will be replaced by Dirk…

These Home Prices Are Killing Me!

February 9, 2010

I’m doing a quick look-through of the lastest home listings in LaVergne and … these prices are killing me!  One home that has over 2000 square feet, four bedrooms, three baths, partial brick just hit the market two days ago for $94,800.  Seriously?  It’s a bank-owned property and these banks – in their efforts to get rid of foreclosures – are pulling down home prices for us. Another home with over 1800 square feet, three bedroom, two bath, formal dining room, partial brick, two-car garage … bank owned (again!) … $89,900. 1620 square feet, built in 2005, three bedrooms, two…

To Flip or Live in Historic House?

I meant to post this before today, but have been working my fingers to the bone as a concession stand worker raising money for my daughter’s baton expenses … time is fleeting!  Before I get to the house, beginner baton classes sponsored by the Tennessee Twirlers start on Tuesday, February 9th at 6:00 p.m.  Classes will be held at the community center behind city hall.  If you have a daughter (or son too!) who is interested in becoming a twirler, it’s a lot of fun and builds confidence and self-esteem.  Call me if you have any questions at 491-2161. Meanwhile,…
