Panattoni entered into an agreement for Panattoni to build an expansion to the Mt. Juliet Community Recreation

Special to The Chronicle
State Sen. Thelma
Harper (Dist. 19) told about
200 local supporters of
restoring Pickett-Rucker
Chapel Friday night that
if she needed to get a job
done, she would call on
Mary Harris.
Harris is the president
of the Wilson County Black
History Committee, which
sponsored the fundraising
banquet at James Ward
Agricultural Center, where
Harper was the keynote
speaker.
Harper encouraged
everyone present to pledge
support for the project,
saying, “The Lord didn’t
give us money to take to the
graveyard. He wants us to
leave some of it here.”
She emphasized the
importance of the project as
a way to preserve the history
of African Americans for the
children who come after.
“Children will know
what their great-great-
great grandmothers and
grandfathers did,” Harper
said. “They will learn from
the struggles, and they will
learn the work ethic from
the slaves who built Pickett-
Rucker.”
She pointed out
children now have a hard
time believing even some of
the simplest changes that
have come about since the
chapel was built.
No air-conditioning,
for example.
“The shade of
the trees was all the air-
conditioning they had,”
she said. “Had a horse and
wagon, and rode to church
fighting flies and gnats.” She
added that her grandson
didn’t believe her when she
told him that.
Harper said she also
opposed any bill allowing
any one to carry a concealed
weapon into a church.
“Church has always
been where we go for
comfort,” she said. “My
concern now is we don’t look
at church the way we once
did. It was holy and safe.”
She ended her
speech by encouraging
the group to work hard to
complete the restoration
and develop the building
as a museum and history
center.
“It will be a center
people will come to from all
around to see how you did
it,” she said.
The chapel was
originally built by slaves
around 1827. It was the first
brick building in Lebanon
and served as a church for
whites and slaves until after
the Civil War.
In the late 1860s,
the white congregation built
another church and moved,
giving Pickett-Rucker to the
black community.
It remained a black
Methodist church until
the congregation outgrew
the building and moved to
a larger building on C. L.
Manier Street.
Next, the historic
chapel was home to a local
theater group, and when
they disbanded it was sold
to the Black Historical
Committee for a museum.
The group plans
to completely restore the
historic chapel and rename
it the Roy Bailey African
Museum and History
Center.
The museum will not
only house artifacts gathered
from all over Wilson County,
it will provide a meeting place
for a variety of historical
programs, according to
Harris.
Anyone interested in
contributing time, money,
artifacts or skills to the
restoration project should
contact Harris at 444-9487
or email gballard@comcast.

deductible.

The highest offer so
far was put on the table last
week for what is arguably
the most sought-after piece
of real estate in Mt. Juliet, a
county official said Monday,
with a price tag of $3.4
million for 12 acres.
Wilson County
Mayor Robert Dedman said
Monday that he received an
offer on what is commonly
known as the old Mt. Juliet
Elementary School property,
located at the corner of Mt.
Juliet Road and Division, on
Thursday, June 11. Dedman
said he received the offer
from a “local seller,” though
wouldn’t divulge the name,
for a total of $3.4 million
for the entire 12 acres,
although the offer “hasn’t
been proved.”
“There are four or
five pages (in the offered
contract) of ‘if, ands or
buts,’ but it is for the entire
12 acres,” Dedman said
Monday. “If we can sell the
whole lot of it, that’s what
(county officials) we’d prefer
to do.”
A contract for the
sale of the property dated
June 11 between Wilson
County and Odell Binkley
obtained on Tuesday by this
newspaper lists the purchase
price as $3.4 million with
$100,000 as earnest money.
The contract states that
“this sale will be closed on or
before 90 days from the end
of the due diligence period.”
As far as zoning
for the parcel, which was
within the boundaries
of the recently defunct
Village Overlay District,
the contract states that “If
Buyer has not been able
to obtain zoning for retail/
office/recreation facility and
water and sewer capacity
approval for $100,000
square feet + by the e n d
of the contingency period,
Buyer can extend this
period by making $5,000
of the earnest money non
refundable per month until
such is obtained. If these
items cannot be obtained in
a time frame satisfactory to
the Buyer, Buyer may cancel
this contract and receive a
refund of all earnest money
that has not become non
refundable.
“Seller has 45 days
from the receipt of this
contract to accept or reject
it.”
Dedman said he sent
the offer to Wilson County
Attorney Mike Jennings
and Wilson County Finance
Officer Ron Gilbert for their
consideration late last week.
He added that Jennings
had been out of the office
until Monday and he’d yet
to hear back from them. The
county’s asking price for
this property is reportedly
$3.5 million.
Dedman said there
are two other offers being
considered for purchase
of the property, including
purchase of $1.1 million for
around two acres.
A letter of intent
obtained by this newspaper
and submitted by Kurt
Wolfman of K Jon Realty
states that he represents
CVS Pharmacy and offered
$1.1 million for two acres of
the property. The letter was
sent to Dedman on April
27.
Wolfman said
the offer is currently
“going through the proper
channels.” He added that
there is not an expiration
date on the offer, but he has
yet to hear back from county
officials.
Binkley, a Mt. Juliet
resident, said Tuesday that
he earlier offered of $2.25
million for the entire 12
acres, which he presented
to county officials “around
a month ago.” He said he
planned to develop retail and
office space on the property
but also has not gotten
a response from county
officials.
Jennings said
Tuesday that he has
forwarded the offers to the
Wilson County Public Works
Department for consultation,
but that committee has yet
to schedule a meeting to
discuss the offers.

County gets $3.4M offer for entire 12 acres of Old MJES property
The Old Mt. Juliet Elementary School property, considered by city
leaders and officials to be one of the most prime pieces of real estate
in the city, is owned by Wilson County, which has listed the 12-acre
parcel at $3.5 million. It was the site of a temporary carnival through
June 13, which benefitted the Wilson County Explorer program.

since 1986
experienced
team
Nenator Mae Beavers
and her Republican col-
leagues continued to debate
the governor’s budget this
week as the General As-
sembly attempts to formu-
late a reasonable budget for
the state of Tennessee dur-
ing these difficult economic
times.
“We believe that the state
needs to live within its
means during these hard
times, and Republicans are
working diligently to come
up with a plan that cuts
both spending and taxes in
order for Tennesseans to
get back on their feet dur-
ing these hard times,” said
Beavers.
The budget will most
likely be debated further in
the House and Senate next
week.
Resolution sends message
Tennessee does not want to
house GITMO Detainees
The Tennessee State Sen-
ate voted this week to op-
pose bringing any detainees
now housed at the Guanta-
namo Bay, Cuba detention
facility into any Tennessee
prisons.
The resolution, SJR 381,
expresses opposition to
the utilization of any local,
state, federal or private jail,
prison or detention facil-
ity in Tennessee. A copy of
the resolution will be sent to
President Barak Obama and
each member of Tennessee’s
Congressional Delegation.
The resolution was ap-
proved by a vote of 29 to 1.
The bill is still pending ac-
tion in the House of Repre-
sentatives.
Senate passes and sends
to governor legislation pre-
venting any locality in Ten-
nessee from becoming a
“sanctuary city” for illegal
aliens
Senate bill 1310 won pas-
sage this week preventing
any city in Tennessee from
becoming a “sanctuary city”
for illegal aliens. A “sanctu-
ary city” is a term given to a
city in the United States that
follows certain practices to
protect illegal aliens. Thirty-
eight cities in the U.S. have
been recognized as sanctu-
ary cities, but many sources
have identified over 200 city
or county governments na-
tionwide as having practiced
such policies.
The measure prohibits lo-
cal governments or the head
of such localities from pass-
ing any ordinances or poli-
cies that allows for a sanc-
tuary city to be located in
Tennessee. The bill is de-
signed to be a pre-emptive
strike to guard against the
adoption of any policies to
protect those who are in the
United States illegally. It
also urges the State Attorney
General and local govern-
ments to pursue any federal
funds allocated to combat il-
legal immigration.
Bills in Brief
Tennessee Transportation
Infrastructure Fund – Legis-
lation, SB 2120, that would
provide a vehicle for local
governments to finance and
complete local transporta-
tion projects was approved
by the full Senate this week.
The bill would give local
governments the option of
applying for a low interest
loan for eligible infrastruc-
ture projects with flexible
repayment terms. The State
Transportation Infrastruc-
ture Fund would also let
Tennessee make application
for a portion of $200 million
in stimulus funds recently
made available through the
American Recovery and Re-
investment Act.
Tennessee declares
state’s sovereignty -- The
full Senate voted to approve
a resolution, HJR 108,
claiming Tennessee’s “sov-
ereignty under the Tenth
Amendment to the Consti-
tution of the United States.”
The proposal is designed to
send Congress a message
that the federal government
has overstepped its Consti-
tutional bounds by man-
dating a massive amount
of federal policies upon the
states in violation of the
Amendment. The language
of the Tenth Amendment is
clear and concise that the
federal government’s powers
are limited to a specific set
of activities. Twenty-eight
states have approved simi-
lar resolutions.

MJ Realtors, others issued sign ordinance citations dismissed in court
“The judge read the ordinance a couple of
times and said I was exactly right,” Thomas
said. “He said that the ordinance itself says
they (city codes enforcers) have to give 10
days notice, that it says it in black and white.”
Realtor George Thomas
Around a dozen
people who were cited and
fined for violations of the
sign ordinance had their
citations dismissed June 9
when the Mt. Juliet judge
interpreted the ordinance as
stating that a 10 day notice
had to be issued
before a citation
could be written.
M t .
Juliet Municipal
Judge Stephen
G r a u b e r g e r
d i s m i s s e d
citations written
by City codes
enforcers for
signs posted in or within
10 feet of the public right of
way and in violation of the
sign ordinance. According to
local Realtor George Thomas,
Grauberger sided with him
and other area Realtors who
were recently cited when
Thomas pointed out the
section of the ordinance that
dealt with a mandatory 10
day notice.
Thomas said
Grauberger dismissed the
citations based on Mt. Juliet
City Code § 11-107(a)(1),
which states that “The sign
administrator or his/her
designee shall order the
removal of any sign erected
or maintained in violation
of this article, providing ten
(10) days’ written notice to
the owner of the premises
upon which the offending
sign is located to achieve
compliance with provisions
of this article. If, after ten
(10) days, the property
owner has failed to achieve
compliance with this article,
a citation to municipal court
shall be issued. However,
when good faith efforts to
bring a sign into compliance
have begun within ten days
of notice of violation, the
sign administrator may
extend the time period for
compliance with this article
to a period not to exceed 30
days.”
“The judge read the
ordinance a couple of times
and said I was exactly right,”
Thomas said. “He said that
the ordinance itself says
they (city codes enforcers)
have to give 10 days notice,
that it says it in black and
white.”
Thomas added that a
city prosecutor argued that
was not the intent of the
ordinance. Mt. Juliet City
Attorney Jason Holleman
also disagreed.
“Although I was not
representing the City at the
June 9th City Court hearing,
my understanding is that
there were about a dozen
people whose citations were
dismissed. It’s also my
understanding that there
are about another dozen
people who have upcoming
court dates on citations
related to signs being placed
in the public right-of-way.
“Because I was not
present at the June 9 City
Court hearing, I cannot
comment on the specific facts
of any cases that were heard
on that date,” Holleman
responded via email this
week. “However, the 10 day
notification requirement of
Mt. Juliet City Code § 11-
107(a)(1) does not apply to
signs in the public right-
of-way. Rather, the next
section of the sign ordinance,
Mt. Juliet City Code § 11-
107(a)(2), specifically applies
to ‘any illegal sign on public
property or a public right-of-
way’ and states that ‘such
signs shall be considered
litter.’”
Holleman added that
providing a 10 notice for
signs illegally placed in the
public right-of-way would be
not different that providing a
10 day notice prior to citing
other littering violations.
Holleman said the
current sign ordinance will
most likely not be revisited
or changed.
“It’s not feasible
or likely to deter future
violations. The City intends
to follow its current
ordinance and hopes that
reasonable enforcement,
along with continued public
education, will help to
reduce the number of future
violations.”
Thomas said that
other Realtors who have
been issued citations for
sign ordinance violations yet
to appear in court should
also cite the 10 day notice
section in the
City Code with
hopes to get
their citations
dismissed as
well.
“They should
say the same
thing until they
(city officials)
do something
with this.”
Thomas said
reimbursement for fines he
paid when his signs were
confiscated “never came up”
during the court session but
that he planned on phoning
City Codes Enforcer Steve
Thomas and asking for his
signs back.
“I plan on calling
him up and getting my signs
back,” the Realtor said.
“And if he’s done something
with them I’d like my money
back, or for him to pay for
new signs. I think we all
deserve that.”

A woman and her son
who were involved in a two-
car collision on May 31 in
which the woman died and
her son was injured were
wearing their seat belts, a
family member has said.
An article concerning
the accident which appeared
in the June 3 edition of The
Chronicle said Nancy C.
Locke and her son Ronald S.
Locke Jr., both of Mt. Juliet,
were not wearing their seat
belts.
The information
about the accident came
from a report filed by the
accident investigator.
Mike Browning,
director of communications
for the Tennessee
Department of Safety,
checked the report again
last week and said the
investigator indicated on the
document that neither Mrs.
Locke nor Mr. Locke were
wearing their seat belts.
The investigator
indicated that the driver
of the other vehicle, Aaron
R. Kik of Mt. Juliet, was
wearing a seat belt. It has
not been determined if the
passenger in his vehicle,
identified as Katie D. Hayes,
was wearing a seat belt.

Wilson County
Commission elected Jerry
McFarland to fill the vacant
District 5 seat on the panel
in four ballots Monday night
at the regular meeting.
Jo Smith, Derek
Truelove, James Spears
and Dave Kirkey were also
nominated for the position.
District 20
Commissioner Annette
Stafford moved to defer
the election saying it was
disrespectful to the memory
of District 5 Commissioner
Carolyn Thompson whose
death about two weeks ago
left the vacancy, but the
motion failed to pass.
In other business,
County Director of Schools
Mike Davis reported to the
commission that the school
system had graduated more
than 1,200 students and
that those students had
received more than $17
million in scholarships.
He also said that
the school system has
contracted to have the air
quality tested at Lebanon
High School and will have
Environmental Solutions
working to resolve any mold
issues.
The Wilson County
Board of Education has also
hired an engineer to develop
an air- and water-tight seal
for the manholes in the
hallways of LHS.
He told the
commissioners that the more
serious electrical, structural
and fire marshal’s issues are
not solvable without major
renovation.
“We need a new LHS,”
he said. “We’ve been batting
this around for 19 years,
since before our most recent
graduates were born.”
He also said he
had never in 22 years as a
school superintendent seen
such a situation as this
(sewer manholes in school
hallways).
The commission
deferred a resolution that
would abolish the position
of constable effective
with the next general
election in September
2010. The resolution will
be returned to the Law
Enforcement Committee for
a recommendation.
The commission
also passed a resolution
requesting that fee offices
submit a line item with their
budgets accounting for the
fees they bring in each year.

Home sales in
Wilson County continue
on the upswing with more
transactions made in May,
and the $8,000 tax credit
may be helping, local real
estate agents said.
“May numbers
are continuing to show a
rebound in our housing
market in Wilson County,”
said Realtor Amy Hamilton
said. Hamilton represents the
Eastern Middle Tennessee
Association of Realtors.
Wilson County real
estate agents closed on 125
homes in May compared to
108 in April. The median
home price rose from
$180,878 to $199,900,
down only slightly from
May 2008 when the median
home price was $208,000 as
well as in May of 2007 when
it was $205,000.
Pending sales
increased to 139 for May, up
from 124 in March. Inventory
remained stable with 1,246
homes for sale in Wilson at
the end of May compared to
1,219 homes on the market
for sale at the end of April.
The average number
of days on the market rose
slightly from 84 to 94 but
has remained within a close
range this entire year, she
said.
“With summer on us,
interest rates still very low,
and the $8,000 tax credit
availability still in force, we
expect to continue to see the
housing market improve in
Wilson County,” Hamilton
said. “Buyers seem to be
feeling more confident that
we have seen the worse of
the slow economy.”
Many potential
buyers seem to think if
they don’t act now, they will
lose one of the best buying
opportunities in history,
Hamilton said. “The past
couple of years have been
trying for many, but we are
seeing the rebound and we
are working our way back
up the mountain again.”
County home sales on the upswing in May
From staff reports
Mt. Juliet became
one of the first Tennessee
local governments to extract
itself from a combination of
variable rate debt and interest
rate swap agreements sold
to it by Morgan Keegan,
officials said last week.
On Wednesday,
June 10, Mt. Juliet sold $7
million of General Obligation
Refunding bonds to redeem
all outstanding variable
rate debt and to terminate
an interest rate swap
agreement.
“We have traded
an unpredictable variable
interest rate and an un-
needed and unwanted
interest rate swap agreement
for 17 years of fixed rate debt
while saving the taxpayers
thousands of dollars in
annual fees – all for just
about the same interest rate”
said Mt. Juliet City Finance
Director John Rossmaier.
Mt. Juliet was one
of several cities featured in
a recent New York Times
article about the extensive
use of interest rate swap
agreements by Tennessee
local governments. The
article, which was published
in early April, raised questions
about the suitability of these
financial instruments for
use by small and sometimes
unsophisticated government
officials.
Many Tennessee
local governments have
encountered great difficulty
refinancing variable rate debt
that was tied to interest rate
swap agreement because of
high termination payments
owed swap counterparties.
In April, the estimated cost
to Mt. Juliet to terminate the
swap was between $500,000
to $600,000. A rise in
Treasury bond yields meant
that payment was reduced
to about $187,000.
“We found a window
of opportunity and we
took advantage of it saving
our citizens hundreds-
of thousands of dollars”
Rossmaier said.
The refinancing
bonds were sold at
competitive public sale. Of
the six bidders SunTrust
Capital Markets provided
the winning bid with a total
interest rate of 3.76%.

PARIS, Tenn.- Four days of tournament bass fishing on Kentucky
Lake, 20 bass weighing almost 95 pounds, two tournament victories,
and $47,000 in winnings - not a bad week away from the office for
Mt. Juliet tournament bass fisherman David Gnewikow.
After a dramatic weigh-in at the Paris Landing Conference
Center on May 28, David was the last man standing in the Triton
Gold Elite Tournament on Kentucky Lake. The two-day tournament
blast off Wednesday morning from Buchannan Resort. David
dropped a 23.10 pound five-bass limit on the scales, but lost one
pound due to a dead fish penalty, dropping him from second to
fifth place. Day two saw the leader board shuffle. Rogne Brown
took the lead weighing in over 23 pounds of Kentucky Lake bass.
David’s limit weighed 24.12 and was just enough to edge out last
year’s champion, Brown, by 0.3 pounds. He received a $40,000 check
for his 46+ pound performance. For more information, check out
David’s website, www.davidgfishing.com.
Now that’s a nice fish, Dr. Gnewikow

When a fire
destroyed the city hall
in Celina in Clay County
recently, city leaders there
had to report that 50 years
worth of vital records stored
in the attic of the building
had most likely been
destroyed.
If a fire or even more
serious destruction occurred
in Wilson County, most if not
all important records would
be safe, officials said. Wilson
County Register of Deeds
Bev Spickard said deeds
and other records which
his office is responsible for
are stored in duplicate in at
least five places.
“We could take a
direct hit by a nuclear device
and our records would still
be safe,” he said.
In fact, all of the
deed books are in a fire proof
vault in the courthouse, but
duplicate records are also
stored as microfilm and as
computerized records in his
office, in a second location
nearby, in the basement of
the courthouse, in the State
Capitol and in a bunker in
a cave in East Tennessee,
Spickard said.
“Every record from
1793 to this very moment is
safe,” he said. The records
which go to the state, to the
Register’s website and to the
cave are all updated every 15
minutes, said Beth Howard,
assistant to Spickard.
Other county records
such as court records,
divorces and marriage
licenses and minutes of
government meetings are
all stored in the courthouse
and on microfilm at the
county archives and at the
state archives.
Those records are
updated once a year, said
Wilson County Archives
Director Linda Granstaff.
Also, all of those records are
stored in a four-hour fire
vault, meaning the vault will
keep a fire from damaging
the contents for up to four
hours.
L e b a n o n
Commissioner of Finance
Russell Lee said the city’s
records are similarly
protected.
“All city records are
backed up regularly to an
off-site location,” he said.
And city hall records are
also stored in fire resistant
areas at city hall.
Local birth and death
records are kept by the State
Health Department and
recent ones are available
at the local office, but all of
those records are also stored
in Nashville.

Reflections
from an
Old Friend
Our Senior Friends and Family
With summer just around the corner and temperatures now in the nineties, now is the
time to start checking in on your senior friends and family. Each and every year many of our
wonderful senior friends become ill or lose their lives as a result of the hot and cold temperatures
inside their very own homes.
With that in mind, I would like to ask each and every person reading this article to
please make it a point to start checking in on any senior family member or friends you know of
throughout the year, not just during hot and cold temperature months.
Senior citizens often live alone and have very few family
members in the area. As a result, there is no one to make sure
they are ok on a regular basis. Many seniors also live on fixed
incomes and are much too proud to ask for help or assistance.
Many of them because of their fixed incomes can’t afford basic
essentials and often pass on food, heat and even electricity
in order to purchase their much needed medications. Can you
imagine having to decide which essentials to pass on? I’m not
talking about cable television, the internet or a phone here; I’m
talking about food, water, electricity, gas and medications. If
you want something to make you feel good, start checking in
on senior friend or family member and you’ll be empowered to
do even more. As human beings this is our duty. Many senior
citizens no longer drive and need help with grocery shopping,
basic maintenance and etc.
I purposely wanted this article to be short and to the
point. Our seniors need us and we need them. What they have
witnessed in their lifetimes we will never see in ours. They
deserve the best of care and attention and we can be a part of
that process.
So in the future when you see a senior citizen having to stand while waiting, please offer
them your seat if they don’t have one. If you see a senior citizen in need please ask them if they
need help. If they decline, that’s fine, just remember that they may be too proud to ask for help.
The worst thing to do is nothing.
Please pray that our seniors stay happy and healthy. Who knows, maybe we will be
blessed enough to be seniors one day ourselves and have plenty of family and friends to check
in on us. And by the way, a phone call is always nice and should be done daily.
God Bless our Senior Friends and Family.

The Tennessee Longhorns
captured the 16U Division ti-
tle during the June 5th week-
end in Murray, Kentucky. The
Longhorns went 3-0 in pool
play against a highly competi-
tive field opening with a 3-2
late Friday night win against
a talented Louisville, KY Select
squad. Trevor Bowles threw a
masterful game supported by
key hits from Chris Hall, Trevor
Bates, Eric Owens, and Ryan
Davis. Saturday’s competition
increased as the Longhorns
rallied in their at bat to de-
feat the Indiana Yankees on a
bases loaded game winning hit
by Chance Sullins. Sullins led
the offense attack against the
Yankees supported by key hits
from Kaleb Hammock, Dylan
Boyd, Trevor Bates, and Con-
ner Belvin. Setting the tone on
defense was Drake Trice’s lay-
out dive catch from 3rd base.
The come from behind victory
proved even sweeter as it was
later determined that the Yan-
kees played two college players,
as well as, a mix of 18 and 17
year old players. Conner Belvin
earned the victory in relief of
Brady Cole as the Longhorns
prevailed 5-4. Saturday’s late
night game again ended in a
hard fought victory over the In-
diana Huskies 5-4 in a 5 inning
affair. Chance Sullins pitched
three strong innings followed in
relief by Chris Hall. Timely hit-
ting again led by Mikee Brown,
Drake Trice, Conner Belvin,
Trevor Bates, and Chris Hall se-
cured the win. The Longhorns
entered Sunday as the number
1 seed in their pool and drew
the talented Evansville Hit-
men for their opening semi-
final game. Kaleb Hammock
battled the heat with a gutsy
performance before giving way
in the 7th to Chance Sullins
who earned the save. Brendan
Wright supported both pitchers
from behind the plate, as well
as, a key hit in the 4th inning.
Offensively supporting as well
was Chris Hall, Mikee Brown,
Dylan Boyd, Eric Owens, Con-
ner Belvin, and Trevor Bates.
As expected, the Champi-
onship Game was a rematch
of Friday night’s opener as the
Longhorn’s and Louisville, KY
Select faced off once again.
Trevor Bowles once again frus-
trated the Select hitters un-
til finally giving way to Dylan
Boyd in the 7th to close out
the game. The Longhorn bats
exploded for 11 hits in a 9-3
victory as the offense won ev-
ery inning except one as chal-
lenged by Coach Bobby Sullins.
Supporting the nine-hit attack
was Chris Hall, Mikee Brown,
Dylan Boyd, Conner Belvin,
Eric Owens, and Trevor Bates.
Coach Taylor Bates offensive
aggressiveness at 3rd base was
supported by the same strat-
egy from Coach Tony Trice’s
and Coach Sullins at 1st base.
Pitching Coach Brent Boyd did
a great job working his pitchers
into the right assignments at
the right time as this team had
a “refuse to lose attitude” going
undefeated through 5 games.
The team is comprised of play-
ers from Mt Juliet High School,
Wilson Central High School,
Friendship Christian, Gallatin
High School, and White House
High School.
