Bulletin Board

Welcome to This is LaVergne’s latest feature, our Community Bulletin Board.  A lot of announcements made on behalf of the guys and gals who live in our community show up in areas that can be easily missed, so I’m adding this section for you.  Having a yard sale?  Chili dinner?  Hear about a meeting people should attend?  Post it here!

  1. Original comment from workshere:

    Just wanted to let you know about the “Chad Bowman Memorial Benefit Chili Dinner”. If you remember Chad was the city employee who died from injuries from a motorcycle accident last month. The dinner is set for November 22nd from 4 till 8 pm. It is at La Vergne High School and is $5.00 per person. There will be a silent auction and baked goods for sale also. Just thought your readers might want to help the family out is some way.
    Thanks

    • What can be done about neighbors that don’t keep up with their property? The zoning dept can’t do anything about it, they say. We need to help keep LaVergne beautiful. What can be done to promot this?

      • Possibly the Lavergne Alderman can start a beautification committee and encourage local businesses and homeowners to improve their places, possibly Lowes or Home Depot would donate a $50 gift card to the monthkly winner and mayor Erwin could announce the winner at their meeting, a little PR for a local business shoudl motivate them to participate. Just a thought.

  2. Please dont forget the LHS Choir Chili Concert tomorrow, November 7th at 6pm. The students will be showcasing individual pieces along with the entire Choralier and Concert Choir ensembles performing. Entry is $5.00 per person or $20 for family payable in cash at the door.

    Please come support one of our MANY fine Youth groups in La Vergne….

  3. My husband’s 4 wheeler was stolen out of our yard this past week. The trailer was found on Mason Dr and neighbors reported seeing a red pickup truck dropping it off. If any of you saw anything, or might possibly know anything about this, please respond here and I will get in touch with you.

  4. Rutherford County is holding it’s Household Hazardous Waste collection Saturday, November 15th, at Blackman High School in Murfreesboro. I have seen conflicting postings about the collection times, but I called the contact listed and she confirmed 8 a.m to 2 p.m. She also warned not to wait until the last minute. I can second that because I showed up a few minutes before the collection time ended last year and they turned me away!

    This may be the only collection for a year as they canceled the spring collection earlier this year to save money, so don’t miss this opportunity to safely dispose of any hazardous items you may have around your home.

    For more information about the type of items they will be collecting check out this page:

  5. just wondering if anyone has heard anything about the boxing gym theyre building…any paper articles or info would be appreciated

  6. Breakfast with Santa!

    My friend asked me to post this – I suppose it could also go in the Bulletin area, but I’m putting it here, too. Master’s Touch Academy in Smyrna serves special needs kids (for example autistic or other kids). Deborah said,

    The children that attend this school have often not been appropriately served in public education and the staff has made a major difference with each child, I know the difference it’s made in my life, Brace has started the school in the 2nd grade level and now in 1.5 years is currently on the 5the grade level, I was told by public school that Brace would never be able to write in cursive; he now writes better than I do!

    To sum it all up, this school has tremendously impacted many families that were previously let down by having only low expectations of children based on their disabilities and now they have hope of their children becoming important members of society.

    Please bring your kids to this event – they can have a great time for a great cause!

  7. We have kids already looking for gently used prom dresses. If you have some time off during the holidays, go through your closets and see if you have any pretty bridesmaid or prom dresses you can part with. Post here if you’re okay with an email link for people to reach you. If you don’t want to give out your real email, set up a free email at yahoo or google or somewhere else. When you give that out, dont use the @ and .’s but spell those words out (e.g. clown(dot)kid@aol(dot)com. That’ll keep spammers at bay.

  8. I’ve seen several comments on the blog talking about promoting the arts. Lamplighters Theatre is presenting It’s A Wonderful Life Radio Production Dec 4-7 and Dec 11-14. They are located at Smyrna Assembly on Old Nashville Hwy, right next to CVS. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 students and $5 children 4-12.

    If you like live theatre, this is the place to check out good local talent.

  9. Just to Piggy Back what Angie B. posted about the Lamplighters Theatre……

    In October, My family and I went to see Lamplighters production of The Music Man expecting to see a “local…amature…not so perfect” attempt at a great Musical only to be BLOWN away by the level of talent this group has!!

    We are from Las Vegas and have seen TONS of professional productions but this one absolutely elated us with the quality of the actors, singers, sets, music, and professionalism of these people.

    GO if you have never been before!!! You WILL NOT regret it!!

    My parents who been coming here every year in October for the last 5 years have already asked me to get tickets to what ever the play will be next October and then they will plan their trip around it….

  10. Does anyone know anything about some kind explosion last week during the night down around Waldron Rd? I have a gentleman I work with asking if I knew anything and of course, I don’t.

    Any ideas???

  11. I know that the Florist shop next to Fat Mo’s had crime tape up the other day, but I don’t know why… there also was a car wreck on Waldron that shut it down for a while the day it snowed.

  12. Is your La Vergne Business hiring? I’m attempting to make it easier for our area business operators and local residents to post and find jobs right here within the community.

    If you know of any positions presently available, please contact me so that I can get the word out. Together, we can keep our economy (and workforce) strong.

  13. Does anyone know if La Vergne has a police blotter? I was thinking the other day that most cities have a local newspaper that lists a police blotter. Since apparently we aren’t a large enough city for our own newspaper, no police blotter?

    I’m just curious because people are always posting things on this site about shotings, explosions, and other things that are never reported in the media. It would be nice to have actual facts and not rely on some anonymous blogger.

  16. Wow, this cold weather apparently has dogs on the loose!

  17. As for my current occupation as a restaurant consultant, I should probably clarify that a bit…

    I began working for the Harpeth Grill in Brentwood in August of 2008 as their webmaster and internet marketing adviser. At the time, I was trying to get a web design business off the ground, but when the economy slowed down; I realized that I was going to need something a little more secure to supplement my income. It was then that I went to work for HG in a more traditional sense. Fast forward to the present, and I’ve basically become a full-time $10/hr line cook/expediter.

    I’ve been in and out of the restaurant industry since I was 16, and for better or worse (now that I’m 33), it’s what I know best. After I graduated from MTSU in 2005 with a BS in Political Science, I jumped immediately into corporate restaurant operations management. I spent a little over three years in that capacity before deciding to take a chance on the web design thing.

    Right now, I’m actually looking for another job. When I signed on with the Harpeth Grill, it was under temporary pretenses. The owner and I have a good relationship, but he simply cannot afford to pay me what I need to make in order to sustain the quality of life that my previous salaried positions provided. I’ve had a great time working once again within an independently-owned restaurant. It’s renewed my zeal and passion for the food service biz. However, at this point in time, I’m more than willing to broaden my horizons and consider any other opportunities out there that may currently be available.

    You probably got a lot more than you bargained for with my little rant there, but I truly enjoy meeting new people and networking. In fact, if I may be so bold; I’ve attached a copy of my resume for you to review. If you know of anyone in need of someone with my qualifications and skill-set; please feel free to pass my information onto them.

    Thank you so much for your time and consideration,

  18. Hey, everyone . . . I’m in desperate need of a top-notch insurance agent. I’m about to be caught between COBRA expiration and Medicare qualification, so I need to find a short-term health insurance policy to bridge the gap. If I’m happy with the agent, I’ll probably also move my family’s medical/dental insurance, and auto, motorcycle and homeowners policies as well. My policies are currently scattered among several agencies and companies and it’s time to consolidate!

    I don’t care if the agent is in LaVergne or East Egypt, as long as they’re good . . . surely with the economy being so rocky, there are some agents out there who are hungry for business.

    Thanks for any help!

  19. Call my buddy John Pickard, 793-9000. He has an office on M’boro Road (Webb Pickard insurance).

  21. Found dog: There is a young black male lab with a blue collar hanging around our house in the 200’s on Lake Forest Drive in LFE. We are not restraining the dog. Hopefully, the owner will search in this area.

  22. Free Breakfast at Denny’s

    In case you missed it… can’t imagine you did, but just in case…

    You and everyone else in America can get a FREE Gand Slam Breakfast at Denny’s Tomorrow 2/3 from 6am – 2pm.

    This was announced during the Super Bowl last night, you can go here for more information.

    Call your local store to make sure they are participating before heading out.

    **Note that it is while supplies last at each store. I have seen one site that says each store will have 500 rainchecks, but can’t find that in writing. It’s worth asking for though if they run out or you don’t want to wait in line.**

  23. Nevermind about Denny’s. None near us :-( Nice thought anyways.

  24. The Denny’s closest to us was closed down about 3-4 years ago for multiple and repeated health code violations. Pleasant thought, huh?!

  25. Good thing they closed! Even if it was free don’t think I would take it!

  26. I don’t know what the deal is/was (I guess they’re all franchised?), but I grew up in Indianapolis and the Dennys there were always top-notch. Moved to New Orleans and Dennys were all gross – most closed down many, many years ago. The ones in Nashville weren’t much better, yet the ones in Florida are very popular and still quite good. I miss the good ones! :(

  27. Lamplighters are presenting Pride and Prejudice this weekend and next at Smyrna Assembly, located at the corner of Old Nash Hwy and Rock Springs. Costs are $10 per adult, $8 seniors, $5 children. Contact 534-0148 for more information.

  28. If you’re looking for something different to do this Saturday, please consider attending SpotLite Dance Studio’s Third Annual Competition Team Showcase. This is a fundraiser put on by the studio’s team to help defray their competition costs. SpotLite is in Smyrna and about 95% of the students are from Rutherford County. Check out the website . . . you might know some of the team. It’s http://www.myspotlitedance.com, then click on “SpotLites.”

    The team’s dancers range from kindergarten up through high school and will be performing jazz, lyrical, modern and hip-hop solos, duos, trios and group numbers. This is an amazingly talented group of kids and they could really use your support . . . the economy has hit us dance parents, too! There will also be a raffle with some great prizes.

    The shows are at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. this Saturday, February 21st, at Blackman Middle School. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. Ticket sales are allocated to each dancer and if you don’t know any of the kids participating, the money will just be deposited in a general fund and equally divided among the team members.

    I promise you, it will be a wonderful show, and who knows . . . it might even get your own kids interested in studying dance, whether or not they want to participate at the competition level!

  29. I am a resident of La Vergne and trying to make some extra income. Please support my effort and anyone else’s who are trying to make it on their own with their small business!! Yes we can survive with out the government sticking their hands into our wallets and paying for others mortgages and some banks’ lack of integrity.

  30. To Kathy T;

    Being in real estate I wanted your opinion on something. I am a resident of the Woodsong subdivision. The landowner behind the neighborhood on Blair Rd. has submitted for rezoning of 8 acres of his land to Light Industrial to put up a self-storage place.

    My initial reaction is this is not what I want down the street from our neighborhood, but what are your thoughts?

    Thanks

    • Chances are good that it could be rezoned. However, when people in a neighborhood stand up and voice their opinions and objections, I’ve seen these zoning proposals defeated. If you can make the point that the zoning of light industrial will make your house lose value – and again if you can rally the neighbors to call or go to the meeting – then you’d have a good chance of defeating the attempt. Here’s a link to the zoning board… http://www.lavergne.org/about/boardinfo.shtml#bza

      Good luck!

  31. Not Sure,
    Please give me a call 793-2469 or e-mail me at sennamosley@tds.net with your thoughts. The second reading on this rezoning will be March 3rd at city hall. A public hearing will also be held that night at 6:30p.m. or 6:45 p.m. I am sorry but I get citizens comments and public hearing times backwards. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Thursday Feb 26th is the workshop for Mayor/Alderman meeting it begins at 5 p.m. also at city hall. If you wish to speak on citizens comments you need to contact Bruce Richardson 793-6295 requesting to be on the agend no later that Wed 10 a.m. Thanks for your concern.

  32. There is a group of people breeding pit bulls on Heritage circle east just off Fergus road. These dogs get out all the time and are dangerous! I have not been bitten yet but they chase me out of my own yard, trap me in my car and confront me. I have called the police three times and they cannot seem to do anything unless someone is actually gets hurt. It seems that I am on my own so i’ll need to buy a gun to protect my family in my own yard. There should be laws to limit breeding dangerous animals in a residential area that housed many small children.

  33. Concerned Citizen, I am not sure if anything can be done, but I would encourage you to contact Senna Mosely (her number is above your post). I have called Animal control before regarding a lose dog. They said there are two problems they usually have. 1 – Animal control has to show up while the dogs are lose, and 2 – you have to be willing to testify against the dog owners if a citation is issued. Everyone wants to remain annonymous and unfortuantely if there is no accuser, then usually the defendent walks.

    In my situation it was a dog roaming lose, animal control contacted the homeowner, and that solved the problem (no citation issued because there have been no further complaints). It might just take an animal control officer knocking on your neighbors door for them to decide to control their animals.

  34. First of all I would like to thank Kathy for providing this resource to learn about “All Things La Vergne”, I have been reading this site since I moved here in the fall of ’06.

    I am attempting to spread the word about my IT Consulting Business “OTC Computer Solutions”. To my knowledge, there is not a Computer Repair type business in La Vergne and I would love to fill this void.
    I have over 15 yrs IT experience and strive to provide exceptional service at a decent price.

    I am available for free pickup/delivery after 4:30PM. Most jobs completed in 3 business days for a Flat Fee.

  35. Regarding the post above, #2 must be a new procedure. My one and only experience with Animal Control was very positive. About two years ago, my 90-lb. lab decided to play escape artist and somehow managed to wriggle out of his collar while my daughter was walking him on a leash. I do understand that it’s my responsibility to keep my dog under control, but he’s very gentle and loves kids, other dogs and even cats. Everyone in our immediate neighborhood knows him and where he lives. Someone did call Animal Control and about 15 minutes later, they pulled up to my house with my dang dog riding in the front seat and looking quite happy with himself.

    The Animal Control lady was nice as can be, but did specifically tell me that we would automatically be fined $50, even if the person who called it in chose to remain anonymous.

    Needless to say, I immediately went out and bought a different kind of collar that he can’t get out of!

  36. I think the reason there was a fine in your situation is because Animal Control came and found the dog while he was loose. If your neighbors were always calling and complining but animal control never found your dog loose, they couldn’t fine you unless you were given a chance to defend yourself to the accusers. In your case, animal control was the accuser.

  37. Omar, I’ve added a link to your computer service in the left hand column under “Friends of LaVergne”. Except for my own real estate stuff, I try to keep commercialism to a minimum on this site, but felt your service is a good one. AND I love helping out small and local businesses! Good luck!

  38. Michael . . . I’m sorry, when I re-read it, my post wasn’t really clear. We weren’t fined since it was a first offense and my dog didn’t hurt anyone, but the $50 fine will be automatic next time, even if the caller doesn’t want to come forward. Now you’ve got me curious as to their exact regulations to fine someone, but I don’t want to find out the hard way!

    We have several dogs that occasionally run loose in our neighborhood, but I know them all and have never worried about it, except for them possibly being hit by a car.

  39. Sherry, no problem. I was just thinking aloud the reason you would have been fined with no accuser, it makes sense. When you get pulled over for speeding, the police are your accuser. When the “dog police” find your dog, it would make sense they could fine you.

    I found the link to the Rutherford County Animal regulations. I don’t know ithink La Vergne has any specific regulations; I would guess not since we don’t have any enforcement at the city level.

  40. Is there an ordinance in Lavergne about constantly barking dogs? I have left numerous notes on a nieghbors door about their dogs barking all the time. They promise to do better but never due. Last weekend they put them out while they had a party and they barked for 7 hours straight, 7:00pm-2:00am. The husband is not someone I’m comfortable confronting in person and I’m afraid of retalliation. Although other neighbors agree, no one else complains. Any advice on how to handle this? It’s been going on for years.

  41. I found this on the city’s website under municipal codes, title 17, regarding noises

    Pets. The keeping of any animal, bird, or fowl which by
    causing frequent or long continued noise shall disturb the comfort or repose of any person in the vicinity.

    Don’t know if this helps or not.

  52. I’m looking for recommendations for a safe, reliable drop-in day care or babysitter in the area for my 13 month old. I am a work-at-home mother but I need to go to the office at least one morning a week. She will only need care for about three hours once or twice a week.

    If anyone has first hand experience with local providers, I’d appreciate any info. Also warnings would be appreciated.

  53. I’m trying to declutter around the house, does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with a bunch of books or vhs video tapes?
    Are there any bookstores here in La Vergne or over in Smyrna that maybe take books in exchange for credit?
    Thanks for any ideas!

    • The LaVergne library used to accept donations of both books and VHS tapes. I don’t know of anywhere that gives you a credit. There used to be a place like that in Franklin years ago, but it’s long gone.

  54. Has anyone heard about this new thing with registering your child for school? We lived in LaVergne and we just recently moved to Smyrna. I went to the new school about registration and was told that I would have to prove that I had paid the wheel tax on my car. The school said that alot of people have not renewed their tags on the cars and that the schools did not get their full budget and now you have to prove you paid. That was all the info they gave. I ran into a former school teacher and she said she didn’t know anything about it. Anybody know anything?

    • Yes, this has been in the news about a lot of people paying wheel taxes in other counties where they are lower, but still sending their kids to school here. Rutherford does have one of the higest wheel taxes, but I believe half of the wheel tax money goes to schools, so that’s why they are enforcing it now.

      • I talked more with the school as I was registering my daughter. I understand where they are coming from. Kids can still register and go to school but for the ones with issues with their tags, they will send that info onto the county attorney and they will decide where to go from there.

        on another note, i went out to dinner tonight and happened to look at car tags and noticed that a car had tags that expired a year ago but yet they can afford to eat out. sounds like somebody has got their priorities mixed up.

  55. I was reading through some of the minutes of June’s Mayor and Alderman meeting and come across a couple of interesting notes.

    – There is an ordinance granting Smyrna the right to provide Natural Gas to the City of La Vergne. My question is why is this just now being discussed? I’ve lived in my home for 4 years and had natural gas from Smyrna. While my property literally borders Smyrna city limits, it makes me wonder is La Vergne wanting to provide Natural gas to the whole city? Or are they looking to charge me more simply for the “privelege” of getting natural gas in La Vergne?

    – Am I the only one who avoids the intersection of M’Boro road and Stones river road on Saturdays because of all the charities asking for money? The board approved 2 more. I am in favor of supporting charities, but I never just give someone money without looking into what their doing.

    – What is a certificate of good moral charecter? This was given to the owner of the rice bowl (even though Alderman Mosley said she has received complaints about their operation). Why would someone need this?

    • I just now ran across this post. Your second paragraph confuses me, though. What do you mean about “LaVergne wanting to provide natural gas to the whole city?” We’ve been here since 1987 and always had natural gas from Smyrna. Or are you talking about parts of LaVergne that don’t have natural gas at all?

      I’m either brain-dead this morning, or I just need a second cup of coffee!

      • Yes, that’s correct, La Vergne residents who do have natural gas have been getting it from Smyrna for awhile now. However, much of the city (LFE) does not have acess to natural gas. Is the city wanting to expand natural gas service? If so, that’s good. However, I’m afraid they are just looking to charge another tax to those of us who buy our natural gas from Smyrna.

      • We have the gas line that goes right through our front yard, but don’t have natural gas. It’s kind of a bummer to me, too. Gas heat is so nice and toasty!

  56. August 22nd 10-6..The Main Stage Music and Dance Studio will be having a Grand Opening. There will be free food, inflatables, entertainment, door prizes, raffles and much more. Come see the newest music and dance studio in rutherford county.

    793-7777….Cheryl Chunn

    • Cheryl, do you have a listing of your classes, times, etc.? I didn’t see it on your website, but thought maybe it wasn’t finalized yet. Thanks.

  57. Here’s a nice story about one of our local elementary schools, Cedar Grove: http://www.dnj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009908170306

    Note – Yes, Cedar Grove is technically in Smyrna, but most of their students live in La Vergne.

    Another Note – If anyone from the DNJ is reading this, I saw a story awhile back that was talking about how the newspapers that are struggling are those that focus on national news. Local newspapers that focus on local news are thriving. Perhaps if you covered Smyrna and La Vergne a bit more, I would subscribe. I mean, can we not even get a reporter to cover our local M/A meetings? Even the fish wrapper that is thrown in my driveway once a week usually has nothing noteworthy about our city, just ad’s. I really would like to read the morning paper, but right now everything you have to offer is boring or outdated.

    • i did read that little paper that is thrown in the driveway. i live in smyrna but lived in lavergne for years. it did mention lavergne and about the guy who ran over his wife and stepdaughter. not the most uplifting news but at least he is in custody

      • I don’t think one story per week is reflective of a community of 26,000 people. They do seem to give equal coverage to LHS, but that’s about it.

        I do think having a regular reporter at our city meetings would help. If they want to pay me, I’ll do it, I should go anyway!

    • I agree, there’s more advertisements than news.
      I’ve heard there’s quite a bit of crime here in La Vergne, is there anyplace online or otherwise to find out what’s been going on? Like a police blotter or website with what the police were called out for, the way nashville has?
      There were 5 police cars and an ambulance near holland ridge this afternoon in LFE, they took someone away in handcuffs. I would certainly like the ability to read what happened.

      • I don’t know that the crime here is any worse than it is anywhere else. Every now and then we will hear about gang activity, but depending on who you talk to you get a different story. I agree it would be nice to have a police blotter, but to the best of my knowledge the city doens’t currently have anything like that.

  58. Does anyone know of a dog park in or around La Vergne?

  59. I believe the closest dog park would be the bark park in Murfreesboro.

  60. I’ve seen several (meaning LOTS) of people who take their dogs to Cane Ridge Park and let their dogs run unleashed inside the softball fields fenced area. I do hope they pick up after their dogs before leaving though.

  61. To Joey and anyone else, I came across this morning on the DNJ what appears to be a wekly police blotter for Smyrna. I wonder why they have one and we don’t? Maybe they have more crime than we do :)

    http://www.dnj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200990825028

    • I sent an email over to the DNJ asking them.
      Thanks very much for pointing that out michaelinVL, That’s exactly what I was looking for.

      • Thanks Joey, I look forward to hearing their response!

      • I did get a reply this evening from the Senior Content Editor at dnj.com, who mentions he also lives at LFE.
        He stated that he would also like to see a blotter for La Vergne getting published regularly.
        I bet the most difficult part is finding someone that wants to drive to the police station and pick up a copy of the reports consistently.
        I’ll see if something comes of it, and, if so, we’ll find a spot to let them know it’s a feature we are interested in.

  62. The Five Guys Burgers and Fries website store locator says

    Town Square at Village Crest
    Coming Soon
    315 Sam Ridley Parkway, Unit 313
    Smyrna, TN 37167

    I’ve heard they are pretty good.

  63. Anyone seen Cloudy’s comments under the SubStation thread? I think we aall should ask the same question. I see the ame thing.

  64. What is the deal with all the lawsuits and La Vergne? I just saw an article on the DNJ http://www.dnj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009909030316 Can they not get their act together? Is it not past time for our elected officials to standup and explain the issues to us? Oh and ultimately take action! It’s good that dept mgt has changed over the part few years bringing about some change, but the same issues are still there. Does this not point everyone towards the actual issue? Who has not changed? HR, City Admin, Board? Go figure. What is it going to take to change the underlying issues?

  65. This Bulletin Board thing is getting pretty long; I could setup a BBS style forum thing where people can start topic threads and others can respond to them in a more structured fashion – makes it easier to find comments and such?

    this website would need to link to it directly though for it to be worth the effort; I’ve got no problem donating my resources and time, just so long as it’s put to good use.

  66. I’m absolutely all for that. Set up something and give me a link. I wanted to do that, but didn’t know HOW to do it. I can not be a moderator, but will most definitely linkie dink and promote it!

  67. I buy every UFC PPV, and I know alot of other ppl do as well. I have decided to save us all some money by inviting you over to my house to watch events on my 52inch Samsung LCD TV while sitting comfortably on my leather couches. My home is located just off Murfreesboro rd in Lavergne, TN. We will have a limit of ppl who can come (probably 5-6 ppl), so first come first serve.

    We will split the cost of the PPV based on how many ppl show up. The more ppl show up, the cheaper it is for all of us to watch it. Please don’t consider this a “PARTY”. This is just a meeting for fellow MMA fans like myself who don’t want to venture out to a loud smokey bar full of rowdy ppl to get together, make some friends, and watch some UFC at a MAJOR discount. I have 2 small children and a wife, so getting TOO rowdy is not allowed. Smoking can be done out on my deck, and feel free to bring drinks. Kids under certain ages can also be brought. My 2 kids Kayla (3) and Jay III (2) will keep them company. I have a large play room for them to safely play while we watch the event.

    If you’re interested, or have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an email at Figsak@gmail.com, or just call me at (615)471-1537.

  68. Here’s a little news story on reagrding the La Vergne Beer Board meeting Tuesday night:

    http://www.wsmv.com/video/20953934/index.html

  69. Anybody been to traffic school after getting a ticket in LaV? I’m wondering if it’s an online course or classroom setting.

  70. i went in january and its at the multi-purpose building. typically the chief of police gives the class and it was interesting i thought

  71. I’ve been too . . . same place as Christie, but mine was about 4 years ago. It takes a couple of hours, but actually was really good. I can’t remember who the speaker was, but he was quite entertaining. All in all, a much better alternative to having a ticket on your record!

  72. i think we went for an hour or hour and a half. it was entertaining. i actually learned a few things and definately worth the time instead of the ticket on your record

  73. Entertaining? Wow! I was hoping it was online so I wouldn’t have to get a babysitter. Thanks for the info!

  74. Something I did learn . . . since it was my very first ticket (ever, surprisingly!), I was told it wouldn’t go on my record if I attended the class. I talked to the officer who did the class about what to say if I was ever questioned about getting a ticket (while changing insurance companies, maybe). Did I say, “Yes, I got a ticket, but it was dropped since I attended traffic school” or “No, I’ve never had a ticket.” He told me you say, “No, I’ve never had a ticket.”

    If that’s the case, wouldn’t any ticket down the road be your “first” ticket that you could get dropped? Anybody got an idea? I don’t want to lie, but why admit it if you don’t have to?

  75. I don’t know about that, Sherry. I would think that an insurance company would have the resources to check that sort of thing. But, it’s probably not worth it to them anyways. I suppose the safe answer would be “I don’t recall”. I think you can attend traffic school once a year. I’ve never been to traffic school either. I had two speeding tickets in college over a decade ago. Not knowing any better, I just paid them.

    Warning: the light on Waldron Rd at the intersections of Bain Dr and Bridgestone Pkwy is a long intersection.

  76. No, the insurance company can only find out about inbformation by asking you, or by reviewing your MVR. In municipalities such as ours, if you go to traffic school then nothing is reported on your MVR.

    Also, if you have been with the same insurer for awhile they may not check your MVR for quite some time, but it’s good to keep the MVR as clean as possible in case you decide to switch companies.

    • Thanks for the info. I was curious because I just switched insurance companies. My old company (who shall remain nameless), TRIPLED my premium when my daughter went from a permit to a license. Needless to say, I was not happy and told them what they could do with their rate increase. :)

      The new company only asked about tickets in the last 24 months, though, so my old ticket wasn’t applicable.

  77. Anyone happen to know if LFE has any kind of neighborhood watch group or anything formal?

  78. Yes, they do have a NW in LFE although I’m not sure who is currently in charge. You can find out from Lt. Ruch (pronounced Roo) at LPD. His number is 615-793-7745.

  79. A sad story from here in La Vergne last Friday:

    http://www.dnj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009910040317

  80. Improved Water Quality in La Vergne:

    http://www.dnj.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009910150326

  81. FYI…. I am not about causing a small business to loose customers at all but thought I would post an experience that my hubby and I had yesterday at the Taco trailer in front of C & C Market on Murfreesboro Rd next to Merchandise Liquidators.

    We stopped at around 3pm … as we have done several times before at the taco stand and placed our order, and proceeded to go inside to pay for it. We have not been there in a while and noticed there have been several changes to the interior of the building. It used to be just a market, but now there is seating and what looks like the beginnings of a permanent kitchen on one side, several computers set up with internet & web cams (one can only imagine why, I suppose)… and then a very small market isle containing products that appear to have been shelved for some time by the amount of dust on them. My husband paid the clerk and was over charged by more than $4 but didnt appear to “understand” my husband when he tried to question it. My husband, being the person he is chose not to “force” the issue so to speak. We went back outside to wait for our food which normally would take no more than 15 mins to prepare on any day, busy or not. There was 1 other family there that gave their order well after us, and yet because of their fluency in the language, received their food plus returned for seconds well before ours was ready. Several others came and went all ordering and receiving food while we sat and waited. Finally after 40 minutes of waiting, my husband approached the trailer/kitchen to ask if there was a problem….. only to find that they were sitting down eating and talking on their cell phones. They told him (he thinks..lol) that it would be ready in a minute. So we waited another 10 minutes. They packaged and gave us our food…TO GO when we never really specified that and never once said anything about how long it had taken. wow. We made our way back to my truck to eat since it was obvious we were not expected to eat inside the market…. Opened our food and found the smallest portions we had EVER seen come from there along with the worst parts of the meat one could find in a taco….Needless to say, my husband is not a very impatient or confrontational man but did deliver it back to the trailer and said with a smile of course….”No, thank you” and walked away. While hearing the laughing chatter from the trailer…. hard not to speculate what that was about.

  82. I am looking for a reputable carpet cleaning company to give me an estimate to clean the carpets in my home.

  83. My neighbor does Carpet cleaning. I have never used them since I have wood floors but they have done several of our other neighbors’ and no complaints.

    They are a Father/Son team and have a Commercial Mounted unit in a trailer. They are licensed and insured and have 10 years experience.

  84. Thank your lucky stars Tennessee. My wife and I have just recently moved from La Vergne to Boston, and I wanted to let you know that I had no idea how good we had it when it came to taxes in TN. Here’s a breakdown:

    MASSACHUSETTS
    Sales Taxes
    State Sales Tax: 6.25% (food; prescription drugs; fuel costs; gas, oil, electricity; clothing costing up to $175, are exempt). For a complete list, click here.
    Gasoline Tax: 23.5 cents/gallon
    Diesel Fuel Tax: 23.5 cents/gallon
    Cigarette Tax: $2.51/pack of 20

    Personal Income Taxes
    Tax Rate Range: Flat rate of 5.3% of federal adjusted gross income
    Personal Exemptions: Single – $4,400; Married – $8,800;
    Dependents – $1,000
    Standard Deduction: None
    Medical/Dental Deduction: Federal amount
    Federal Income Tax Deduction: None
    Retirement Income Taxes: Social Security, civil service, state/local government pensions are exempt. Pension income from other state or local governments that do not tax pension income from Massachusetts public employees is exempt from Massachusetts taxable income.
    Retired Military Pay: Not taxed.
    Military Disability Retired Pay: Retirees who entered the military before Sept. 24, 1975, and members receiving disability retirements based on combat injuries or who could receive disability payments from the VA are covered by laws giving disability broad exemption from federal income tax. Most military retired pay based on service-related disabilities also is free from federal income tax, but there is no guarantee of total protection.
    VA Disability Dependency and Indemnity Compensation: VA benefits are not taxable because they generally are for disabilities and are not subject to federal or state taxes.
    Military SBP/SSBP/RCSBP/RSFPP: Generally subject to state taxes for those states with income tax. Check with state department of revenue office.

    Property Taxes
    Massachusetts does not provide for a general homestead exemption but does have a Homestead Act. The Homestead Act permits a homeowner who occupies a house as his/her principal residence to shield up to $500,000 in equity in that house from creditors. By simply filing a Declaration of Homestead with the appropriate Registry of Deeds, a homeowner may be able to protect his/her residence from the claim of a future creditor. The Homestead Act permits only one spouse to file for the equity protection if each has an ownership interest in the home. The protection offered to the disabled and the elderly is even more comprehensive because it allows a husband and wife who own their own home to each file for the $500,000 equity protection. Click for details.

    Massachusetts also has a circuit breaker program that offers a real estate tax credit for persons age 65 and older. Certain taxpayers may be eligible to claim a refundable credit on their state income taxes for the real estate taxes paid during the tax year on the residential property they own or rent in Massachusetts that is used as their principal residence. If the credit due the taxpayer exceeds the amount of the total income tax payable for the year by the taxpayer, the excess amount of the credit will be refunded to the taxpayer without interest. For tax year 2008, the maximum credit allowed for both renters and homeowners is $930. To be eligible for the credit for the 2008 tax year; the taxpayer or spouse, if married filing jointly, must be 65 years of age or older at the close of the 2008 tax year; the taxpayer must own or rent residential property in Massachusetts and occupy the property as his or her principal residence; the taxpayer’s “total income” cannot exceed $49,000 for a single filer who is not the head of a household, $62,000 for a head of house hold, or $74,000 for taxpayers filing jointly; and for homeowners, the assessed valuation as of January 1, 2008, before residential exemptions but after abatements, of the homeowner’s personal residence cannot exceed $793,000. Click for details.

    Inheritance and Estate Taxes
    There is no inheritance tax and a limited estate tax on estates valued at $1,000,000 or more.

    Information for new residents can be found here.

    For further information, visit the Massachusetts Department of Revenue site.

    TENNESSEE
    Sales Taxes

    Gasoline Tax: * 21.4 cents/gallon
    Diesel Fuel Tax: * 18.4 cents/gallon
    Cigarette Tax: 62 cents/pack of 20; 77.5 cents/pack of 25

    Personal Income Taxes
    Salaries, wages, Social Security, IRAs and pension income are not taxed. A 6% tax is levied on stock dividends and interest from bonds and other obligations. The first $1,250 in taxable income received by a single filer is exempt ($2,500 for joint filers).
    Retirement Income Taxes: Persons over 65 with a total income of less than $16,2000 (single filer) or $27,000 (joint filer) are exempt from the above tax.
    Retired Military Pay: See above.
    Military Disability Retired Pay: Retirees who entered the military before Sept. 24, 1975, and members receiving disability retirements based on combat injuries or who could receive disability payments from the VA are covered by laws giving disability broad exemption from federal income tax. Most military retired pay based on service-related disabilities also is free from federal income tax, but there is no guarantee of total protection.
    VA Disability Dependency and Indemnity Compensation: VA benefits are not taxable because they generally are for disabilities and are not subject to federal or state taxes.
    Military SBP/SSBP/RCSBP/RSFPP: Generally subject to state taxes for those states with income tax. Check with state department of revenue office.

    Property Taxes
    Tennessee does not have a homestead exemption. However, there is a property tax relief program for the elderly, disabled and veterans. Click here. The assessed valuation of a property is based on 25% of its fair market value. Depending on the location of the residence, homeowners will be assessed property taxes from the city only, the city and county, or the city, county, and a special school/fire district rate. A local government may authorize (at their option) a person who is 65 years of age or older to defer payment of tax up to $60,000 of the appraised fair market value of the homeowner’s residence if the combined income is not more than $12,000. Local option could increase it to $25,000. For more information, call 615-741-4883 or click here for an overview of property taxes..

    Inheritance and Estate Taxes
    There is an inheritance tax in which all real and personal property in which the decedent owned or has an interest is taxed. It ranges from 5.5% to 9.5% of the value of the property transferred at death. Spouses are exempt. For 2008, any amount over $1,000,000 is taxed. The estate tax is limited and related to federal estate tax collection. For more information, call 615-532-6438.

    For further information, visit the Tennessee Department of Revenue site or call 615-741-2837.
    * Tax rates to do not include local option tax of 1 cent.

    This information does not even take into consideration the fact that the cost of living is 42.5% higher in Boston than it is in Nashville, and I’m being paid about the same as I would in TN for doing the same type of work. And, don’t even get me started on the parking rates and toll roads.

    On top of that, there is about three times the amount of red tape to get anything done here when it comes to government services. I’m not sure where all of the tax revenue is going, but it’s definitely not being applied to providing more effective and efficient social services.

    Long story short… In this economy, every dollar counts, so if you’re a TN resident; consider yourself blessed that you get to keep many of those dollars in your pocket when others don’t.

  85. Ok, I’m not trying to ask a stupid question but….

    If the cost of living is so much higher and the taxes are so much higher and you’re not making any extra money, why did you move to Boston???

    • Maybe he prefers the cold hehe.

      • That’s right, all those extra taxes are needed in order to turn up the refrigeration in Boston so they can offset the Global Warming!!

        I assume that means the end of the La Vergne business directory too?

  86. anybody hear about what is going in the Ichy Kitchen this time? or next door in the old P.O. building?

    And a Little Caesars…where?

  87. THIS FRIDAY NIGHT…..
    The LHS Concert Choir and Choraliers will host the
    2nd Annual Chili Night in November
    on the 13th at 6:00pm

    The evening will begin in the cafeteria where you will feast on a Chili Supper with all the fixins. Then after we have filled our bellies we will move over to the Auditorium to enjoy a fabulous Vocal program by the Choral members.

    This will be a night for all to come out and bring all your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Tickets are being pre-sold right now by the students for $5 per person or $20 per family up to 6 people. This is our preferred method for you to purchase your tickets so that we may plan the evening for the correct amount of guests. Those who purchase a ticket in advance will be placed on our “Reservations” list and will have priority seating for both the dinner & the program. But if you are not able to get a pre-sale ticket you may also pay at the door. Contact Tonya Knell 308-8031 for tickets and if you know a Choralier, mention their name and they will get the credit for the ticket sale.

    We would also like you to know that the money raised from this event will greatly benefit the students in many ways. For Choraliers, this will help in covering the cost to rent their dresses for the Winter & Spring Concerts and this will help in raising the funds for their trip to Disney in April. For Concert Choir member, this will help in covering the cost to rent their dresses for the Winter & Spring Concerts.

    So please, buy your tickets and come out and support YOUR Choir Department.

  88. It would be really helpful if this blog had the latest postings on top, instead of having the oldest posts in the most visible place at the top. When you click on the Bulletin Board link, you see messages from over a year ago.

    • I don’t think it’s an option.
      Whatcha wanna do is, read down if it’s the first time here, then, next time, just page down or hit the windows ‘end’ key or use the mouse to just go all the way to the bottom, and, it’ll only take you a few seconds to go back up to where you left off last time.
      I realize you don’t prefer it this way, but, the people that make the programming to allow these blogs never thought to make a ‘I would prefer it from the bottom up’ button choice.
      I myself think it’s a good idea, you should suggest it to them, they might send you a check.
      I apologize if I sounded sarcastic, I was not.

      • That’s an interesting point. The newest blog entries start at the top, but the newest comments start at the bottom.

  89. LaVergne now has an 11 year old travel baseball team. The majority of these kids grew up in Lavergne’s baseball system. If any individuals or businesses are interested in donating or sponsoring our team, please visit our website.

  90. I have off on Christmas day, anyone know of any volunteer opportunities nearby?
    I don’t have family here and have some free time, I wouldn’t mind helping out maybe with a Christmas dinner for the poor event or something.

  91. Have you checked with the local animal shelters? They always need help!

    And on a different note, nursing homes can be extremely lonely to the residents without family…adopt a senior! They are one of this country’s best natural resources.

  92. I don’t know if anyone saw this, if the “Green La Vergne” group is still together, here’s a good project:

    http://www.newschannel5.com/Global/story.asp?S=11841550

  93. I Live in the City of La Vergne, TN. I was recently cited for “Failure to sign Vehicle Registration”, and after some investigation, the law states that I do NOT have to sign it if it is on my person or in my vehicle. (According to the Tennessee Motor Vehicle Laws Annotated 2008 Edition) (55-4-108.)
    My case was dismissed and the officer was informed of the changed law by the Judge on Jan 27th 2010. It has been almost 2 months though, and I wonder how many others actually paid the fine for this bogus law. If there are quite a few, could this be grounds for a class action suit against the city? Anyone else sited for failure to sign their Vehicle Registration?

    • That’s bizarre . . . I’ve lived here for 21 years and NEVER signed my registration. I guess I just didn’t notice it needed to be signed. I’ve been stopped several times over the years (okay, I’ll admit to being a lead-foot), and never had a cop say anything about it being unsigned either.

  94. Hello People!

    Just found this great place and found it really interesting :)

    Looking to have some good fun with you people!

    Cheers :)

  95. Hi DrevySess, Welcome to the website, it’s nice to see ya.

  96. Not sure if any of you saw this article, but here are details on whats happening with the old and new assistant principals at LHS:

    http://www.tennessean.com/article/D4/20100315/NEWS01/3150314/La+Vergne+assistants+reassigned

    Also another article about some workers at the Firestone plant in La Vergne are apparently upset at Bridgestone for spending money to try and sell more tires:

    http://www.tennessean.com/article/20100314/NEWS01/3140368/Some+at+Bridgestone+unhappy+with+marketing+costs

    • I did see the article about all the new assistant principals. Apparently they all visited LHS this week and the students weren’t particularly welcoming. Next year’s gonna be interesting, to put it mildly. :(

      • Interesting… any details? What could the students have possibly done?

      • michaelinLV, I’m not sure if this is going to post in the right order or not. The site doesn’t give me the option to reply to your reply. Anyway, the students didn’t pull anything major – just showed their usual disrespect for authority. A group was told to get to class and quit loitering (no response from students); another was told to remove a ballcap and pull up his sagging pants (student said “no” and walked off). The tour also stopped in to observe a class where nothing was going on (I guess because it was the day before spring break?). Kids were using their ipods, openly texting, goofing off, etc. and the teacher was reading a magazine. I’m sure this didn’t make a good impression, and this was a dang AP class!

        The students have zero respect for Mr. Daniels, especially now that he’s out the door, and the new principal is going to have his hands full. Bringing in a whole new crop of assistant principals as well isn’t going to make things any easier.

  97. Wanted to throw this out there. A friend of my husband’s recommended we try Firehouse Subs in Smyrna. We tried them and were blown away. They are one of the best subs I have ever had and the prices were reasonable. I know this is not in La Vergne but they are just a hop skip and a jump away. Located in the new shopping center across from Lowe’s. Their website is: http://www.firehousesubs.com/

  98. April 30 7-9pm–the Main Stage Music and Dance Studio will be having a Musical showcase Come see the newest music and dance studio in rutherford county. We offer private and group instruction in violin/ fiddle , mandolin, guitar, piano, voice, banjo, bass, clogging, ballet and tap, and hip hop. We also offer birthday parties…new this summer music and dance day camps for the kids that would like to try an instrument or type of dance. They will get to try all types of lessons And have fun doing it!

    • $99 for a tan? The sun is available for free, I think I’ll just use that!

      • I’ve never understood the whole tanning bed thing personally, but a LOT of people love them. I’ve seen several houses where people have their own private tanning beds in the second bedroom. Daaaang.

    • This article really frosts my butt because the headline is “LaVergne clinic employees…” it didn’t look like a single person was from LaVergne and yet WE get the headline. And you’re right… what clinic?? Is there a clinic named LaVergne Clinic?

      It’s very clear that the headline is written to portray that it’s a LaVergne crime, and I think that’s grossly unfair … I’d be curious to know why the headline didn’t state “Hillsboro woman accused of TennCare prescription fraud”

      Gripe gripe gripe…

  102. Good afternoon La Vergne. I just moved back into town from a 9 month stay in Boston. I’m super-stoked to be back, and I’m thinking about rejuvenating the online La Vergne Business Directory that I was working on before I left. Also, if any one needs a quick, easy, and affordable site built for their business, trade, or practice, I’d love to incorporate that into the site as well. Please contact me any time if you (or someone you know) may be interested in this project. Thank you for your time and consideration.

  109. We are still looking for our male buff color cocker spaniel, Bucky. Escaped from house @ 9/18. Was wearing blue nylon color, rabies tag and tag with phone number 793-6646. Sadly missed and loved! Afraid of rain, storms, lightning and is seizure dog. Any information would be appreciated! Woodland Hills Subdivision off of Waldron Road, Highland Hills Drive. We think someone in the neighborhood has him or knows of his whereabouts as he has escaped us in the past and was always returned.

    • I just stumbled across this. We also live in Woodland Hills and our black lab is quite the escape artist, but my wonderful neighbors always make sure he gets home.

      Hopefully you found Bucky?

  110. Sherry, we still have not found Bucky nor had any word of him :-( Thank you for responding. In your walks with your furbaby, would appreciate if you would ask about him if you will. Everyone in the neighborhood knows silly Bucky. He’s escaped many times before and we have always gotten him back :-(

  112. I’ve probably been living under a rock since I broke my hip last month, but last week as I was traveling down M’boro Road, I noticed that Smith’s Grocery was empty and then the other day the sign said “Store Closed”. Could they no longer keep up with the ‘big boys” or did something else happen to cause this?

  113. More Specifically:

    “We will be closing down for remodeling sometime the week of November 13th, 2010. Our estimated time to reopen is the Janurary 2011 as Save-a-lot. It will be the same owners and the same meats that you are accustom to, including the Pick 5 Meat Sale and The Truckload Meat Sale. We will no longer be cashing checks, selling money orders, selling stamps, or taking NES payments.”

  121. Not sure where to put this so I will stick it here, this morning (SATURDAY) Feb. 5th I stopped at the Tiger Mart on Fergus and there was an older lady with a flat tire, her and one of the girls the work at Tiger Mart was trying to get the jack and spare and tire tool out and you know how cars are these days so I went to help but I was in a huge hurry to pick up my son that I have not seen all week and get to the gym for a ball game, but I did manage to get things started, after running in the store for a sec. I decided that I felt really bad so I called the Lavergne Police Dept. The dispatcher (a female) took down my info and I told her what was going on, when I came back a couple hrs. later I stopped and asked if they came and helped. THEY DID!! so, just wanted to say KUDOS to the LPD and I think the girl told me officer DAVID?? I hope that’s correct came straight out and helped this lady. SO! Again, LPD and David THANKS for helping her. It made me feel alot better.

  122. The LHS Concert Choir and Choraliers will host the
    2nd Annual Spaghetti & Song
    on the 18th at 6:00pm

    The evening will begin in the cafeteria where you will feast on a Spaghetti Supper with all the fixins. Then after we have filled our bellies we will move over to the Auditorium to enjoy a fabulous Vocal program by the Choral members.

    Parents….This will be a night for all to come out and bring all your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Tickets are being pre-sold right now by the students for $5 per person or $20 per family up to 6 people. This is our preferred method for you to purchase your tickets so that we may plan the evening for the correct amount of guests. Those who purchase a ticket in advance will be placed on our “Reservations” list and will have priority seating for both the dinner & the program. But if you are not able to get a pre-sale ticket you may also pay at the door.

    We would also like you to know that the money raised from this event will greatly benefit your student in many ways. If your student is a Choralier, this will help in covering the cost to rent their uniforms for the Winter & Spring Concerts and this will help in raising the funds for their trip to St Louis in April. If your student is a Concert Choir member, this will help in covering the cost to rent their dresses for the Winter & Spring Concerts and help in raising funds for the trip to Dollywood in May.

    So please, buy your tickets and come out and support YOUR Choir Department.

  123. Does anyone know a place in LaVergne that would rent out space once a month for a “So You Wanna Be Creative” workshop? I’m trying to get a stamping/cardmaking/friendship class started.

    Thanks so much!!
