MJ celebrates
Independence Day
Mt. Juliet residents had to wait until Sunday night, July 5, for the Independence Day fireworks at Providence due to some serious storms
that moved through the area Saturday night, but many said it was worth the wait. Over 60 vendors were at the July 4 celebration at
Providence, along with inflatables, games, food and entertainment. A total of $3,500 was donated to the MJ Help Center form the
event. ~ Photo submitted

Something for everyone
“Practice makes per-
fect” is a commonly known
adage when applied to most
aspects of life. In sports and
academics, preparation,
practice and persistence of-
ten mean the difference be-
tween not only success on
and off the field or in the
classroom but success in
netting thousands of dollars
in scholarship funds – and in
these tough economic times,
many parents are looking for
answers to the multiplying
questions about how to pay
for education and college.
At Mathnasium,
owner and educator Jon
Willis and his staff begin
teaching children as early as
age 4 the basics of math and
“number sense” in order to
begin preparation for math
classes and tests as soon as
possible.
Willis said that even
though the economy is bad
at the moment parents
should think about prepar-
ing now for college testing,
and that “kids that prepare
over the long haul have bet-
ter ACT and SAT scores than
those who cram a few weeks
before.”
“There’s no substi-
tution for preparation, and
that doesn’t happen over-
night,” Willis said. “If you
want your child to be suc-
cessful these things must be
focused on at an early age.”
Willis said that in
these difficult economic
times parents are seek-
ing ways to help fund their
children’s college education,
which means applying for
scholarships. He said there
are fewer chances of being
awarded an athletic schol-
arship than an academic
one, and high college entry
test scores are an important
part of the scholarship ap-
plication process.
Willis gave an exam-
ple of one student he spent
a year tutoring for ACT
preparation. Willis said he
watched the student’s math
test score rise from 19 to
26 to 32. The highest score
possible on the ACT is a 36.
That student was awarded
a $40,000 scholarship to a
well-known, private college
in Nashville as well as a full-
ride to another local school.
“Parents need to ask
themselves if is worth pay-
ing a few hundred dollars
now for that much money in
scholarships,” Willis said.
He added that the Hope
Scholarship is partly based
on college entrance scores,
and that it takes practice
over time to prepare and
raise those test scores.
“Preparing for and
achieving high scores on
these college entrance tests
– and in math in general
– is like losing weight,” Wil-
lis said. “There is no quick
fix, no crash course. Cram-
ming and studying for a few
weeks or so just before the
test may raise your score a
few points, but that’s it. It’s
not likely to get a student
the score he or she needs to
get scholarship money.”
Willis added that Mathna-
sium is not just about col-
lege test preparation – not
by a long shot. He said he
and his educators are teach-
ing children how to learn.
“Our students are
learning things that make
them think, not just follow
a process,” Willis said, tap-
ping the lead of his pencil on
Preparation and practice now at Mathnasium could
mean scholarships for your children in the future

Mt. Juliet City com-
missioners voted July 6 to
hire Lebanon’s city attorney
as its municipal judge.
At a special city com-
mission meeting Monday
night, Lebanon City Attor-
ney Andy Wright was unani-
mously approved to serve
as Mt. Juliet’s new munici-
pal judge. The hire comes
quick in the wake of Ste-
phen Grauberger’s resigna-
tion from the post on June
27 via email to city officials.
Former Mt. Juliet
city judge John Gwin, who
currently serves as Division
III General Sessions Judge
for Wilson, agreed to sit in
as an interim judge.
District 1 Commis-
sioner Ted Floyd nominated
Wright, who was the only
nominated candidate.
Wright served 11 years
as a Metro Nashville po-
liceman, the attorney said,
focusing for eight years on
undercover drug enforce-
ment. In 2001 he graduated
from the Nashville School of
Law and began practicing
in 2002. Wright worked for
one year with the Farrar &
Bates law firm in Nashville,
which serves as counsel for
the Tennessee Municipal
League. Wright then worked
in the firm of Lowery & Low-
ery in Lebanon for one year
before becoming the City of
Lebanon’s full-time staff at-
torney five years ago.
As a city attorney, Wright
said, he has experience
prosecuting in court and
has been involved in the
court system “for six or sev-
en years.”
Wright said he is familiar
with “the need for a produc-
tive and efficient city court.”
“I understand the need to
work with the police depart-
ment,” Wright said Monday.
“I know the need for an ef-
ficient, productive
court docket.”
In the May 13,
2009, edition of the
Chronicle, outgoing
judge Grauberger
voiced his concerns
about the Mt. Juliet
city court system
and how it is con-
ducted.
Grauberger took
office early this year
but experienced
some friction with
Mt. Juliet Police and
city leaders in May,
when results from
an evaluation of his
first 90 days in of-
fice raised concern
about his track re-
cord in court rul-
ings versus those
of Gwin. Grauberger called
a meeting with commis-
sioners in May, reported in
the May 13, 2009, edition
of The Chronicle, and said
his main objectives in call-
ing the meeting was to dis-
cuss who has control of the
court docket, an analysis of
his decisions made from the
bench during his first three
months versus those made
by outgoing Gwin during his
final three months on the
bench, and who dictated the
decision for the number of
court dates to be reduced.
Grauberger remarked at
that time that City officials
are currently looking to in-
crease the number of police
officers in Mt. Juliet, which
along with the onset of sum-
mer months (and restless,
driving teenagers) will only
increase the number of
dockets.

Two local men were
arrested recently based on
Grand Jury indictments,
one stemming from a
false robbery report at a
Providence restaurant and
the other from an assault
at a Mt. Juliet summertime
staple: the little league
park.
Timothy Hubbard of
Mt. Juliet was arrested for
Filing a False Police Report
and Theft over $1000.00 for
an incident stemming from a
reported robbery at the Taco
Bell located in Providence
Marketplace, Mt. Juliet
police said last week.
On February 2,
2009, the MJPD received a
call of a robbery at the Taco
Bell in Providence. Officers
and detectives responded
after a lengthy investigation
determined that a robbery
did not take place.
Hubbard was indicted
by the Wilson County Grand
Jury in the June term and
arrested for the charges on
June 10 without incident.
Robert Anthony
Payne, 40, of Nashville,
was arrested for Aggravated
Assault, Aggravated
Robbery, Aggravated Sexual
Assault, and Theft for a
November incident where
the victim was assaulted at
the Mt. Juliet Little League
ball park on November 24,
2008.
Payne is currently
incarcerated in the Tennessee
Department of Corrections
on unrelated charges. At
the time of the attack Payne
was on parole for 50 years
on various charges out of
Davidson County. Payne
was served his warrants by
the Wilson County Sheriff’s
Office during transport to
the Wilson County Jail.
“The Mt. Juliet Police
Department is happy to
announce that we are now
auctioning off surplus and
seized property of GovDeals.
com,” said MJPD Chief Andy
Garrett. “Citizens can log on
to the website to see surplus
and seized property by going
to the website www.govdeals.
com “
Garrett said citizens
can expect to see items
posted on a monthly basis,
and by following the simple
directions on the website can
purchase the items through
the website. The website
allows the City of Mt. Juliet
Police Department to reach
a broader base of buyers at
a lower cost to the city for
auctioning off the items.
Anyone having
questions or comments
about the site is encouraged
to contact MJPD Detective
David Stolinsky at (615)
754-2550.

MJ man charged for first
degree murder of wife
Attorney maintains Fox’s innocence
A Mt. Juliet man
remains behind bars he was
charged with the first degree
murder of his wife, though
his attorney maintains the
man’s innocence.
Emergency medical
personnel were dispatched
to the couple’s home on
Dogwood Hills Court on
June 30 after reports of
a woman falling down
a flight of stairs. Shelly
Allen, 47, was already dead
when responders arrived,
according to authorities on
July 2.
Wilson County
Sheriff Terry Ashe said in
a release last week that
at the scene detectives
found inconsistencies,
and information obtained
from the medical examiner
revealed Allen died as a
result of “multiple blunt
force trauma.”
Fox was interviewed
by detectives from the
Wilson County Sheriff’s
Department as well as
agents from the Tennessee
Bureau of Investigation. Fox
indicated in a statement his
involvement in the death
of his wife. A motive was
unknown as of Thursday.
Ashe added that the Wilson
County Sheriff’s Department
had received a domestic
violence call involving the
couple in the past, and court
suggest that the couple was
having marital problems.
Fox’s attorney,
Stephen Mills, told The
Chronicle Tuesday that his
client is innocent.
“He did not contribute
to his wife’s death,” Mills
said of Fox. “He found her
where she had fallen. He
didn’t kill his wife, is what it
comes down to.”
Mills said that
statements made to law
enforcement officials that
led investigators to charge
Fox with first degree murder
and issue warrants for his
arrest were “taken out of
context.”
“What he said has to
be seen in the context of the
whole interview,” Mills said.
“The warrants paraphrase
what he said. I do not believe
them to be exact quotes, and
I’m not aware of whether or
not those interviews were
taped.”
WCSD Det. Chris
Hodge did not return call
for comment or an update
by press time Tuesday.
Fox is being held in the
Wilson County jail without
bond. His preliminary court
hearing is July 16, and Mills
said they plan to plead not
guilty to the charges.
Robert Jason Burdick,
also known as “The Wooded
Rapist,” was sentenced to
32 years in prison without
the possibility of parole in
Davidson County on July 2.
Burdick was convicted of
raping a Donelson woman
in her home and charged
with the rape of more than
a dozen women across Mid-
dle Tennessee, including a
Mt. Juliet-area teen in the
driveway of her home near
Hwy 109. Authorities believe
Burdick raped women in
Davidson, Williamson, and
Wilson counties between
1994 and 2008.
Burdick is 39. He still fac-
es charges in Metro Nash-
ville, Williamson, and Wil-
son counties.
‘Wooded Rapist’ gets 32
years, faces more charges

the clean white desktop. “We’re raising problem-solv-
ers and thinkers, inventors. It’s learning, not memo-
rizing.”
Willis added that beginning with children at
a young age prepares them for math in middle and
high school. He said that by starting early, by learn-
ing number sense and understanding the processes
of math students feel more comfortable in the subject
as they progress in school.
“It’s frustrating enough to have a ton of home-
work to deal with, much less a ton of math homework
to work through,” the educator said. “And then to not
even understand what you’re supposed to do, that’s
really frustrating for a kid. And I think that kids these
days have enough frustration and pressure on them
without adding math to it, not when a parent can pre-
vent and alleviate it.”

Our number system is base 10. So learning how the number 10 works is very important for kids. Try this
game at home. Take a deck of playing cards. Take out the face cards so you just have ace through 10. Let
your child know that the ace represents 1. Lay out 5 or 6 cards face up and ask your child to pick up two
cards that add up to 10. At first your child might need a bit of help, depending on grade. But the key here
is for the child to start recognizing all the pairs of numbers that add up to 10. In the end, this will pay big
dividends down the road because your child will be able to add numbers much faster. Once your child
masters finding 2 cards, see if they can find 3 cards that add up to 10. After that have them find cards
that add up to 15 and then 20. I have been doing this with my son in kindergarten. Try it out and most
importantly make math fun. Make a big deal out of small successes.

Reflections
from an
Old Friend
Handicapped Parking
After numerous questions, complaints and concerns about excessive abuse of
handicapped parking spaces and various pleas from individuals who really need to use
them, I felt compelled to remind all citizens of the importance of respecting the needs of
the handicapped and those needing handicapped parking spaces.
Handicapped parking spaces are intended and reserved for handicapped or
physically challenged people suffering from a debilitating injury, illness, deformity or
limitation. In order to legally park in a handicapped parking space, a driver must display
either a handicapped license plate or dash placard. The majority of people using handicap
parking spaces are neither handicapped nor disabled.
Drivers abusing handicapped parking spaces tend to be people who are either in
a hurry, impatient, disrespectful, or just plain lazy. Most violators who abuse handicap
parking spaces are good people who just fail to see the seriousness of abusing these
spaces.
In other words, they don’t put a face with the handicap space. With that in
Mind, I want you to picture a handicapped or special needs person circling a large
parking lot in search of a handicap parking space. The person circles the parking lot
only to discover that all handicap parking spaces are occupied. Now, I want you to
picture this same person as they struggle their way across the parking lot, only to find a
perfectly healthy person entering a vehicle parked in a handicap parking space illegally.
As you can see, this can be very disheartening and troubling to a handicapped or special
needs person.
Persons abusing handicap parking spaces will normally justify their actions with
comments like: “there are more handicap spaces than there are handicapped people,”
or “I’m only going to be in the space for a minute.” These are all easy to say comments
when you aren’t handicapped, disabled or have a special needs relative or friend. As
mentioned before, you must display either a dash placard or handicap license plate
to park in a handicap parking space. Please consider the seriousness of violating the
handicapped parking space law and help us help those in need of these spaces.
In closing, A little respect goes a long way and it is the right thing to.

WHAT AR E “ HONEY DO’ S” ?
All the things around the house
You’d like your “Honey” to do.
Things that break, won’t work, or fit
That you just can’t get to.
We know how hard it is to find
someone to do repair.
Jobs we do, we do with pride
our cost, you’ll find, is fair.
So if your job is large or small
our quality is the same.
So start a list and keep it out
Building Reputation is more than just our name.
Of course large jobs we love to get
More small than large we do.
This poem we wrote for you to read
is just for “Honey Do’s.
By now you know, all jobs we’ll do
our estimates are FREE.
Large jobs, we know, are soon to come
courteous service is our policy.
