The Mt. Juliet Senior Citizen Center has started a weekly “music jam” on Thursdays from 1 – 3 p.m. The weekly music jam is a free event to anyone interested in listening to some great country, bluegrass, and gospel music from our regional talent. It is also a free and open venue for musicians and singers alike to share their talents with our seniors and community. “We hope this weekly event will continue to grow, and as it grows, our senior center will hopefully grow as well,” commented Center Executive Director Donna Stephens. “Warren Hickman assisted me greatly with planning and organizing this first music jam. The seniors were beyond appreciative for the music and laughter of the day.... it was rejuvenating for everyone! The musicians, singers, and audience were thrilled to have this venue to share, laugh, dance, play and sing. We are encouraging the public to join us every Thursday for this event... we hope to grow and grow and grow!” ~ Photos by Tomi L. Wiley

MJ native uses slump in economy as launching point for new, popular publication
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
They say that necessity breeds invention, and for one former Mt. Juliet man and his family that necessity has resulted in a new publication focusing on the history of Nashville. Allen Forkum and his family, including father Garnett and brother Barry, recently published the first edition of The Nashville Retrospect, a broadsheet newspaper focusing on historical events and experiences in Nashville. Allen said two things spurred the idea for the newspaper: “the slumping economy and my old house.” “The Nashville Retrospect is published by AutoGraphic Publishing Company which has been printing newspapers about the auto industry since 1988 when my father, Garnett Forkum, and I started the company,” Allen said Monday. “The recent auto industry slump forced us to consider other ideas. One was a newspaper for older Nashvillians, and one feature we considered was a local history page. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought that an entire publication could be devoted to the topic. “I became intensely interested in local history in 2007 when my wife, Anna, and I purchased an old house in the Belmont/12th South area of Nashville. Because of historic zoning restrictions, I had to research the house’s past so that any changes we made to the exterior were consistent with its history. I had a wonderful time doing the research. I felt like a detective, scouring microfilm and looking at old maps. I learned that the 1907 house was older than tax records indicated and that it was built by a blind man whose grandson and

Supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first-come first serve basis.

Allen Forkum great grandson still build houses today (that’s a whole other story). “In short, I found learning about local history very enriching, and I thought others might enjoy it, too.” Allen said the publication took around five months to come to fruition – from the first idea in January to its release at the end of June. All of the contributors to the Retrospect are freelance, and they range in expertise from scholars to those writing about their personal experiences. “To name a few: Mike Slate is editor and publisher of the Nashville Historical Newsletter; for us his topics have ranged from a street in Donelson to an Englishman’s 1797 visit to frontier Nashville,” Allen said. “George Zepp writes regularly for The Tennessean about the city’s past; for us he wrote about the nowgone Bijou theater and the city’s first prohibition raid. Paul Clements is a historian currently writing a major work on the founding of the Cumberland settlements; for us this month he wrote about John Donelson’s famous journal of his river journey to the settlements.” But much of the content also comes from old newspapers, which is more about researching than writing. Other articles go back to the early 1800s. “We have over 230 years of the city’s history to draw upon,” Allen noted. Allen said the response to the first edition has been “overwhelmingly positive.” “There’s an excitement about it that I did not expect. We knew some people would like it, but we underestimated how many and how strongly,” he said. “The July issue featured a photo of Cascade Plunge from July 4, 1957. We got a huge response from people who remembered going there. We receive phones calls and e-mails every day about the paper, often from older Nashvillians who want to tell us their memories, which is something we will See PAPER, Page 4

Writer: familiarity breeds friendliness
Dear Editor: I think it is easier to see the difference in people rather than the similarities. It may be true that “familiarity breeds contempt,” but then the inverse may also be true: “familiarity breeds friendliness.” Why don’t we try an easy communitywide experiment in each of our neighborhoods. Let’s sit outside in front of our house for ten minutes from 6:30 – 6:40 p.m. each Sunday night and see what develops. The weather should be good for a while and we will be able to tell if it is working before winter. I call this “The Front Porch Initiative” AKA “FPI.” It may sound simplistic and naïve, but then again, it just might work! Carol J. Schilling Mt. Juliet

PAPER, from Page 2 be publishing. Other readers enjoy learning more about where they live, even if they are not from here.” Allen and his family, however, are from here – from Mt. Juliet, to be exact. He graduated from high school here in 1983 and worked at Staggs Pharmacy from junior high through high school. He said he had fun being a “soda jerk” at the store’s ice cream counter. Later he attended different commercial art schools in Atlanta, GA, and while there designed the logos for The Herald and The Beacon. He met his wife, Anna, at art school and eventually moved back to Nashville to start the graphic design studio that would become the basis for his publishing company. He and Anna have a six-yearold daughter, Lyla. The good news is that even in these “tough economic times,” something good can be born of necessity – and in addition to discovering fun facts about Nashville, Allen uncovered some tidbits about Mt. Juliet as well. “In researching the Retrospect, I come across interesting items from all over middle Tennessee,” Allen said. “One I found was about Mt. Juliet. It appeared in the December 29, 1887, edition of The Daily American. It reads as follows: MOUNT JULIET ACADEMY. Special Correspondence of The American. Mount Juliet, Tenn., Dec. 27.—Our citizens were highly entertained at Academy Hall last night by the pupils of the elocution classes, under the excellent direction of Mrs. J. W. Macoy, of Nashville. The regular programme was supplemented by several selections recited by Mrs. Macoy and her little daughter Jennie. The audience left in a state of high good humor.” For more information on The Nashville Retrospect, including where to pick up a copy or how to subscribe, visit www.nashvilleretrospect. com or call 615-391-3666.

New city planner pleased to join ‘forwardthinking’ community, set to start Aug. 24
By Tomi L. Wiley Managing Editor
Set to join the ranks on August 24, Mt. Juliet’s new city planner said this week that he sees Mt. Juliet as a “forward-thinking community” that is “well governed and committed to maintaining and pursuing a bright and positive future.” Steve Foote answered some questions via email for The Chronicle on Tuesday, with topics ranging from his previous experience a n d education to what his family thinks about moving from Gulf Shores, AL, to Middle Tennessee. Here’s what he had to say: Why did you choose to apply for the position of city planner with the City of Mt. Juliet? We’ve traveled through Nashville over the years on trips to see relatives in Kentucky and have often stopped in the Franklin area. I’ve also met many people from the Nashville area and they have always spoken favorably about Middle Tennessee. This peaked my interest enough for me to look into the job and do my own research of the area. I was impressed with information about the government and City that I was able to read on the Mt. Juliet web page. Based on my inquiry, I determined that the City would be a great organization to work for and where a city planner would be welcomed. I also thought that Mt. Juliet would be a great place to live and work. What experiences, background, education and talents do you feel qualify you for the position? I hold a B.S. degree in Geography from James Madison University in Virginia, and have 22 years of planning experience with various cities in Arizona and Alabama. During my career I have served on a citizen planning board and bicycle advisory committee. I held the positions of President, Vice President, Section Representative, and Conference Chairman with the Alabama Chapter of the American Planning Association. I am a certified planner with the American Institute of Certified Planners. I hope that my varied experiences will be of great value to the City of Mt. Juliet and that I can contribute to its future success. What was your most recent position, where, and how does that make you a good candidate for MJ’s city planner? My last position was Community Development Director for the City of Gulf Shores, AL, where I worked for 13 years. See PLANNER, Page 7

PLANNER, from Page 5 In this capacity I led the city’s planning, building, and code enforcement operations. This position and some former positions have given me significant experience with working in fast growth areas and in trying to achieve orderly, quality development and land use patterns. Proper planning is critical to achieving one’s goals, whether an individual or those of a community. While in Gulf Shores I lead the preparation their first comprehensive plan and many area specific plans (Intracoastal Waterway, Bon Secour River, and tourist area). These plans have been extremely important in guiding the decision making process for staff and elected officials as we reviewed and considered planning and development applications. I have extensive knowledge in the area of pedestrian and bicycle facility design and understand the importance of developing non-motor vehicle paths to improve the livability of a community. Being a part of a young community like Mt. Juliet gives me an opportunity to help formulate and implement great plans for the City of Mt. Juliet. I anticipate that my career experiences will help me play an important role in guiding the city through future challenges.
