Tennessee writer pours his South into his prose
William Gay sees decades of work translate into novels, films
By Ken Beck Special to The Chronicle
One of the finest contemporary scribes of Southern fiction makes a rare appearance in Lebanon Friday evening. William Gay, whose first novel, “The Long Home,” won the James A. Michener Memorial Prize in 1999, will read at Sherlock’s Books as part of the Tennessee Writers Alliance WordFest (call ahead for ticket availability). Gay, a native of Hohenwald, has been writing since his teen years while making his living as a carpenter and drywall hanger. Ten years ago, in his mid-50s, he was finally able to lay his toolbox aside and wrestle with words full time. Since then, he has nabbed national and international literary acclaim, and his short story, “I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down,” has been turned into a movie, while his novel “Provinces of Night” has just wrapped filming in Wilmington, N.C., with a cast that includes Val Kilmer, Kris Kristofferson, Hillary Duff, Dwight Yoakam and Hank Williams III. Gay, 65, a Guggenheim Fellowship winner, is still ruminating about what he may present in Lebanon. “I might read a short story about methamphetamines, ‘Where Will You Go When Your Skin Cannot Contain You?’ It’s about greed and has got that meth theme running through the story. The meth guys are like the new bootleggers or something. Or I might read a couple of segments out of my next book that I am still working on, ‘The Lost Country.’ The title is in reference of a place you can’t get back to, that childhood and lost innocence,” Gay said during a phone interview this past week. The meth tale was included in “The Best American Mystery Stories 2007” and “The Best American Short Stories 2007,” and Stephen King selected Gay’s third novel, “Twilight,” as his favorite book of 2007. He wrote of it in “Entertainment Weekly”: “The perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. ... ‘Think No Country for Old Men’ by Cormac McCarthy and ‘Deliverance’ by James Dickey … then double the impact.” Storyteller Gay tends to set his novels in the rural South of the 1940s

His books have run with a similar theme of boys evolving into manhood in rough circumstances as their character is being tested. For Gay, it was a legendary Southern writer that sent him on his path to being a wordsmith. “I think I was around 15 or so when a teacher gave me a copy of ‘Look Homeward, Angel’ by Thomas Wolfe. It sort of blew my mind and altered my way of thinking,” Gay said. “I thought, ‘This would be a great way to be if you could write something See WORDFEST, Page 4

First reading, multiple workshops, lengthy discussions, side meetings = City 2009/2010 budget still on the table
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
After an initial first reading, several workshops and hours of discussion Mt. Juliet city commissioners voted to defer approval of the 2009/2010 budget Monday night. City commissioners wielded their “whittling tools” and discussed a variety of possible budget cuts but failed to come to a consensus on the proposed budget. Some of the budget cuts suggested (although not individually recommended) by City Manager Randy Robertson included: $5,500 for a webstreaming encoder for Channel 3 $50,000 from a contingency fund for City Attorney Jason Holleman for “lawsuit issues” a total of $38,637 for the acquisition of a new Mt. Juliet Police vehicle and accompanying equipment $7,500 to only partially pave sections of Mundy Park instead of the original $15,000 to totally pave the park $45,000 – 50,000 for a vacant building inspector position within the Public Works department $50,000 cut in health insurance policies for city commissioners $25,000 for the Citysponsored Fourth of July fireworks celebration (“I would recommend not doing that,” Robertson noted.) and would reduce, Elam remarked, influence over that area of City control. Other possible cuts were in the MJPD sector, including removing the current community-oriented programs such as the COPS and Explorers programs. MJPD Chief Andy Garrett providing sales tax revenue currently – revenue big box retailers such as Lowe’s and Wal-Mart, which are scheduled to come online in Mt. Juliet later this year, are not included in the 2009/2010 budget numbers. He added that City officials should receive sales tax revenue boring communities. In discussion, commissioners unanimously approved an amendment to move $150,000 out of the General Fund to a “rainy day fund” – which is still part of the General Fund but “protected” – and must have a “super majority vote” of 2/3 of the commission to remove funds from the emergency fund. Another amendment approved by the commission in discussion was to cut the grants and donation budget line item by some $73,170, down to $100,000. Depending on the economy at the time, commissioners may “free up” the remaining $73,000 in December. Bradshaw voted against the measure. In Unfinished Business, commissioners voted to defer one meeting to adopt a new Title 3 to the City Code concerning Animal Control per staff request. An amendment to the FY 2008/2009 budge for the IT Department for equipment to schedule Channel 3, transfers coming from Stormwater, Police and Economic Development, was See BUDGET, Page 13

City Finance Director John Rossmaier said the projected sales tax and business tax revenues for the new Lowe’s is projected at a total of $256,000 per year.
some $33,000 for new security cameras and an updated contract for City Hall These money-saving items were, again, only up for discussion. The board voted 3 – 2 in favor, in discussion only, for the $50,000 cut in insurance policies for city commissioners, with Mayor Linda Elam and District 4 Commissioner Jim Bradshaw voting against the measure. Two other budgetcutting items proposed by Robertson were the elimination of woodchipping, where “real dollars” could be saved, as well as contracting out animal control services, which was deemed too costly said that while he didn’t want to cut any officer programs, he believed eliminating community-oriented programs would be deficient to the community and “adds more than saving budget money.” He added that he considers “any time an officer speaks to a citizen a community outreach,” but that by removing Officer Tyler Chandler from his post as community policing director and “putting him back on the streets” he would then have to remove one officer per shift from patrol, thus causing a deficiency in officers on patrol in Mt. Juliet. Robertson reiterated that the budget numbers are based on businesses numbers for the month of April later this week, and that of the past reported 10 months, eight months showed increases in sales tax revenue over last year and above projected budget numbers. City Finance Director John Rossmaier said the projected sales tax and business tax revenues for the new Lowe’s is projected at a total of $256,000 per year. “Don’t hang your hat on that number,” Robertson warned, adding that estimates for sales tax revenue for big box retailers are “like nailing wallpaper to a wall” and are based on numbers from the retailers in neigh-

southeast of Nashville. “All my family lived here. I had this idea to be a writer you had to live in New York or be an expatriate in France or something like that. I realized what I wanted to write about was in the South, and I needed to live here. There seems to be more scenery, more to look at,” said Gay, who worked four decades with his hands under the sun but continued to plug away doggedly with his prose. “I thought I was good enough to be published, and I liked doing it. From a practical standpoint, it don’t make any sense to write it and put in a box or in a closet. So the logical thing was to send it out to magazines. I didn’t have an agent. I was sending stuff to ‘New Yorker’ and ‘Esquire’ and then started submitting to literary magazines.” In 1998 “The Georgia Review” accepted one of his short stories, and a few weeks later “The Missouri Review” took another. Gay describes the exhilaration of his initial publishing experience saying, “There is no drug that could make you feel like that. It was one of the best feelings I ever had, sort of like being vindicated in a way. I had been a closet writer. I was working in construction. You don’t go out on Monday morning and say, ‘Listen to this sonnet I

Times, gained him a little attention, and since then, he said, “I been able to make a living at it.” Gay said he writes in spurts but can go at for hours at a time: “If it’s something I’m intensively working on, I look forward to it and work on it every day.” And he writes in longhand until he transcribes that into a computer. “That’s pretty much the only way I can do it. I can’t write on keyboard, so I edit as I type it into a laptop. Then it’s like a second draft. I change as I type it up.” Among his rewards for his writing acclaim, Gay taught writing for a semester at Sewanee: The University of the South, a treat he thoroughly enjoyed but found a bit peculiar. “I got along well with the students but didn’t fit in that well with the academic types, except for a couple of the professors. It was a kind of a jarring transition from pouring concrete or doing drywall, from that to teaching college,” he said. “It’s a weird world. I never went to college, but here I was telling kids what they was supposed to do.” A film version of Gay’s “Twilight,” a tale about a kinky undertaker who hires a hit man to snuff out See WORDFEST, Page 13

CU looking to MJ for nursing program
College presence could bring ‘sustainable economic development’
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Have the interest, they will come. That’s the hope of Mt. Juliet officials and business leaders as nearby Cumberland University announced recently an interest in building a nursing satellite program in Mt. Juliet. Cumberland President Harvill Eaton said last week that he would like to have at least 25 students enrolled in order to begin a nursing program in Mt. Juliet. In response to that can establish a presence in Mt. Juliet, Eaton continued. “The leadership of Mt. Juliet has been very encouraging in their discussions with Cumberland concerning activities we might have there. We consider a Mt. Juliet presence to be an important part of our strategic growth,” Eaton said, “but must assure that the specific activities we attempt in the city are: (1) programmatically logical for us, the City, and the region in the long-term, (2) fit the strategic plan of Cumberland, and (3) make business of the nursing program will accelerate the broadening of our activity in Mt. Juliet.’ A proposed nursing program – and additional programs that could spin off of its success – could be a boon economically and socially for the residents of the Mt. Juliet area, agreed Mt. Juliet/West Wilson Chamber of Commerce President Mark Hinesley. He said that not only would additional people coming to Mt. Juliet for classes boost local retail sales but would increase job opportunities and training by offering higher education. “I would think that an MBA program might be attractive to at least a portion of our residents.

announcement, Mt. Juliet Economic and Community Development Director Kenny Martin said Monday that the response has been “awesome.” He said that as of late Friday afternoon there had been a combined response between CU and Mt. Juliet City Hall of over 50 people. “Already the response has been significant, with calls for information coming to the City of Mt. Juliet office, and, of course, directly to Cumberland,” Eaton said Monday. “All of the inquires that have gone to the City of Mt. Juliet were passed over to Cumberland immediately so that they could receive a response as soon as possible.” Besides local interest in the program, there are several steps that must be taken before Cumberland sense. These three points are critical, and must be the primary drivers for Cumberland’s decision. Taking each one separately, we are looking for a long-term, logical outreach to Mt. Juliet. The areas that make sense for the region, and for us, are professional studies in business, technology and healthcare, especially as they affect the working adult. So, those are the strategic directions that guide our actions. Second, we must also make sure the directions in which we go fit the strategic plan of the University, and these areas certainly do. Finally, the business proposition must make sense for us to continue this or any program.” The “strategic move” to Mt. Juliet, Eaton said, “will be positive, and success

The Mt. Juliet Animal Shelter regularly has an overabundance of kittens available for adoption. Kittens are cute and sweet and grow up to be cats. Have mice? Cats eat mice. Need someone to talk to? A cat will listen to you, and a kitten, before it grows up to be a cat, may even pause in play long enough to acknowledge you and your problems. Admit it, cats are cool. Go get one. They’re clean, I guess, and quiet enough. Look, I’m a dog person, and I’m allergic to cats, but cats are cool enough, and if I wasn’t afraid of breaking out in hives or scaring my Farm Dog, I’d go get one myself. Plus, my mom’s afraid of them. So, long story short, no cat for me. But you should go get one. Call the Mt. Juliet Animal Shelter today at 615-773-5533 or just stop by at 115 Industrial Drive, at the top of the hill. They also need volunteers. Volunteering is good for kids, churches and families. Help out a kitty today. You know you want to.

Mt. Juliet Rd. carnival is fundraiser for county Explorers
County mayor gives permission for ‘first carnival on that spot’
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Kids of all ages can enjoy a carnival set up on Mt. Juliet Road to benefit the Wilson County Explorers, the first of its kind, many say, to be offered at that location. Wilson County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Greg Lasater said that Cumberland Valley Shows owner Jeremy Floyd, a onetime member of Lasater’s Boy Scout troop, offered to donate part of the carnival funds to the Explorers. The carnival, set up in Lebanon last week, also benefits the Lebanon High School Booster Club. Lasater said 15 percent of profits from the carnival, which runs through Saturday, will benefit the Wilson County Explorers, “hopefully to fund the summer Explorer Acadmey,” which have been postponed this year. Lasater said the funds will also be used for “much needed equipment for training,” as well as T-shirts, hats, and winter clothing. According to the website, “the Wilson County Sheriff’s Explorer Program began in the fall of 2000 with six members. To date the program has 25 active members. The Explorer Program is designed for young men and women ages 14 - 18 who are interested in law enforcement as a career. The Explorer Program reaches out to many young people to learn various police tactics, patrol procedures, drug detection, search and seizures, DUI detection, self defense, firearms safety and many other law enforcement topics. The explorers also learn to camping, canoeing, caving, and wilderness survival skills. Each year explorers take a trip to Gatlinburg to snow ski. Many of these outdoor activities teach these young people discipline, self respect, teamwork, and being able to reach their fullest potential.” Lasater, who also serves on the Wilson County Board of Education for Zone 5, the carnival will reopen on Wednesday after a twoday hiatus. He said the carnival has been “very busy” and saw as many people on Saturday night than during the entire week the carnival was open in Lebanon. “We hope people in the community will come out,” Lasater said Monday. “Carnivals are fun, it’s like being a kid again.” The county deputy added that there have been “very few incidents, just a little trouble” and no arrests made as of Monday. He said the Explorers are working security for their own fundraising carnival. Lasater added that Wilson County Mayor Robert Dedman gave permission to use the county-owned property, commonly known as the old Mt. Juliet Elementary School property, for the carnival, and Mt. Juliet Zoning Administrator Isabelle Ford said Monday that carnival officials had obtained the proper temporary permit, which is applicable for 10 days.

In what organizers are calling “one of the most unique events to ever be held in Tennessee,” the Southeastern Division National Antique Car Show will be held June 13 in the historic village of Fiddlers Grove at the James E. Ward Ag Center in Lebanon. There have only been three National shows in Tennessee, but one has never been held in a pioneer village like Fiddlers Grove. This show is being hosted by the Antique Automobile Club of America and the Middle Tennessee Region Antique Club of Lebanon. The deadline for registration was June 3, and

approximately 320 cars have been entered from all over the United States with 16 states represented. National shows are known for the best and the most unique cars in America to be shown, and organizer said this show will be no exception. The show will begin on Thursday, June 11, with a Car Corral offering antique cars for sale and an automobile flea market as well. Both of these will continue through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The antique competitive car show will be held on Saturday only with cars entering Fiddlers Grove from 7 - 10:30 a.m. with the

The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet, June 10, 2009, Page 13 WORDFEST, from Page 4 a nosy teen, appears likely. Meanwhile, “Provinces of Night” is slated for a 2010 release, and “I Hate To See That Evening Sun Go Down” (the title comes from a Jimmie Rodgers song), starring Hal Holbrook, Dixie Carter, Ray McKinnon and Barry Corbin, has been shown to glowing reviews at American film festivals. (Gay’s title has been changed to “That Evening Sun.”) The author saw the film this spring at the Nashville Film Festival, where it found favor in his eyes. “I liked it. I thought the actors did a good job. They changed my ending. It’s a little more upbeat than what I had written. It was dark. They lightened it up a little,” Gay said. “Holbrook was great and was really nice to me. He thanked me for writing the story.” Besides novels and short stories, Gay also pens essays on music for a variety of magazines. He’s been a fan of Bob Dylan before most folks in the South ever heard of him, but he also and compliance with the ordinance at the Paddocks development on N. Mt. Juliet Road was unanimously approved with amendments. A resolution to authorize the acceptance of the property located at Industrial Drive/Animal Control Shelter and authorize the mayor to sign the documents to purchase and close on the Animal Control Shelter located on Industrial Drive was deferred at Robertson’s request. Also deferred (due to the late hour resulting from budget discussions) was an ordinance to approve the board of commissioners procedure manual and an ordinance to increase sewer rates in Mt. Juliet, both on first reading. A resolution to authorize the mayor to sign an engagement letter with Alex Buchanan, Waller Landson, Dortch & Davis, LLC as bond counsel was approved by a 4 – 1 vote, with Hagerty abstaining. favors such players as John Prine and Doc Watson and enjoys old-time country and blues from the 1920s and ’30s, such as The Skillet Lickers and white bluesman Dock Boggs. For all his success, Gay says life is pretty much the same for him in the countryside of Lewis County. “It has sort of opened my eyes about a few things but hasn’t changed my lifestyle all that much. I still live very simple. I’m not very pretentious. I can buy a few more CDs and movies (on DVD and Blu-ray) now.” The writer, who drives an old Jeep and still mows his own yard, is enmeshed in his fourth novel, “The Lost Country,” still working on where to take the plot. He may be writing about a time and place that has come and gone but there are chunks of it stuck in his mind and with effort, his memories will blend with his creative juices and the story will gel. “I sort of like the South of a few years ago better than now,” he said. “There’s so much technology and too many yuppies. It’s almost like getting too homogenized, like the rest of the country. There used to be more individuality,” said Gay, a true individual with his roots running deep in Dixie.

BUDGET, from Page 3 unanimously approved on second reading. Commissioners approved by a 4 – 1 vote to amend the 2008/2009 budget for $100,000 for the Nashville & Eastern Railroad for crossing equipment and to authorize the mayor to sign the agreement on second reading, with Bradshaw voting against. In New Business, the commission approved by a 4 – 1 vote to rezone the Charles Duncan property, located at the corner of Lebanon Road and Grandview, from RS-40 to CG, with District 3 Commissioner Ed Hagerty voting against.

RTA operates MC Star train to Nashville fireworks
send your fun summer photos to
Want to attend the Independence Day Celebration at Riverfront Park, but don’t want to fight the hassle of traffic and parking? No problem. Take the Music City Star instead. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) will operate a special Music City Star train on Saturday, July 4 from Lebanon to downtown Nashville for the Music City fireworks at Riverfront Park. The train is tentatively scheduled to depart from Lebanon Station at 4 p.m., stop in Martha at 4:13 p.m., Mt. Juliet at 4:24 p.m., Hermitage at 4:33 p.m., Donelson at 4:44 p.m. and arrive at Nashville’s Riverfront Station at 5 p.m. The return train to Lebanon leaves 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Nashville fireworks. An allotment of 900 tickets will be available to the general public and cost $10 for a roundtrip ticket. Parking is free at all of the outlying stations. Customers will receive only one ticket for the round trip and will need to show the ticket to the conductor when boarding on both trips. Children age 4 and under will not need a ticket to board; however, they will be required to sit in their parent’s lap. Weekday Music City Star tickets and passes are not accepted on the July 4 train. In order to ensure that passengers traveling together will be seated in the same passenger car, tickets will have a car number assignment printed on them. Passengers should enter that specific car at their boarding stations. Travel back to the original boarding stations from Riverfront Station after the fireworks should be in that same passenger car. Tickets are available for purchase beginning June 5 at Music City Central, which is located at 400 Charlotte Ave., on the Music City Star Web site at www., or with a credit card over the phone by calling (615) 862-5925. Online tickets will be on sale until 4 p.m. Friday, June 26 or until they are sold out, whichever comes first. Tickets will not be for sale July 4 on the platforms. For more information, call (615) 8625950 from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sundays or visit the Music City Star Web site at www.

NURSING, from Page 7 education opportunities in our community would be a very welcome addition. As traditional employers look to the future and assess what they are going to need in terms of skill sets from employees, a significant amount of re-training would seem to be at least something to consider.” Eaton agreed that continued education and training for Mt. Juliet’s working adults would help the local economy. “The presence of private colleges with four year and graduate programs helps economic development in a major way,” Eaton said. “Cumberland enhances sustainable economic development. We aim to help underpin healthcare and technology-based companies with their immediate workforce needs, but will be engaged in the creation of new companies that keep jobs in a region for decades. Cumberland will help incubate new business and support changing product lines in existing business.

way of making something or selling something changes or finds a cheaper labor source. Again, it’s about sustainable economic development. We are placing our emphasis in Mt. Juliet on those activities that help attract the industries and the residents of future business in healthcare and technology since that will where the nation is heading is the area from which a region like Wilson County and Mt. Juliet gets the greatest economic gain in the long term.” Martin added that the location of a CU satellite campus in Mt. Juliet and available hours to working adults seeking higher education would be a dream come true for many people. “The location and hours of the Mt. Juliet location will allow many who have been dreaming about entering a career in nursing to become a reality if the program comes to fruition,” Martin said Monday. “We’d like to be a huge part of making people’s dreams come true and will do all we can to make it happen. Out of each of the 50 people that have called there was at least one similarity with each caller and that was excitement. Each caller

expressed how they had been searching for such a program and was excited to see that Cumberland was considering Mt. Juliet for a possible location.” Location is the key word at this point, and Mt. Juliet City Manager Randy Robertson said Monday that Cumberland officials were pondering nearly a dozen different locations in Mt. Juliet to settle. As of Tuesday, possible locations were still being considered. According to Hinesley, location for a possible CU nursing program is “probably pretty high on their list” of priorities. And as far as priorities in Mt. Juliet for the betterment of its residents and workforce, continuing education ranks high on the list, since higher education of a workforce often means better accessibility to corporate recruitment. “A community with access to higher education is a community much better poised for the future than one without this opportunity,” Hinesley noted.

Reflections from an Old Friend
A salute to our great Teachers
With yet another school year nearing an end, I would like to personally salute and thank all our wonderful teachers on a job well done. As each and every school year passes, yet another bright - faced group of young adults walk across the graduation stage to receive their much anticipated and earned High School Diploma. As the parents, relatives, teachers and friends beam with excitement and pride, our teachers feel as if they’ve lost another child from the nest. You see, to our teachers, these now young adults are their adopted children in heart and soul. Are teachers become extremely close to these children and take great pride in watching them grow and learn over the years. So you can only imagine the pride and love these teachers feel for their adopted kids when they watch them graduate from high school or move up to another grade level. It’s like watching your child leave the nest, times one hundred. I have fortunately had the opportunity to guest speak for many teachers over the years, and the one thing I’ve come to realize, is that teachers love what they do. While working with various teachers, I’ve come to know that our teachers have a tough job. Teachers must keep the attention of our children each and every school day. They must prepare lesson plans, homework assignments and the trust and respect of the children, in order to grow their minds. Let me assure the teachers that you have indeed succeeded in your job. You have once again gone above and beyond the call of duty and given your hearts and souls to the children. In closing, I can’t thank you enough for what you have done and continue to do for the children. Next to parents, teachers are the most influential people your child will ever be around. God Bless our Teachers!

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
