Thunderstorms over McDowell County have moved east and are now located in Western Burke County near the town of Morganton. There is one thunderstorm in the Northern part of Rutherford County between Thermal City and Gilkey that is slowly moving eastward, at this time we don't expect that cell to affect any part of the county as it should remain south of the McDowell/Rutherford County line. Conditions across the rest of the area appear quiet at this time but more convection could develop through the evening as a frontal boundary is moving into the region.

Rutherford County Schools confirms student case of mumps
Two seniors earn $1,000 scholarships from SROs Eagleville School senior Isaac Haley and Smyrna High School senior Craig Brooks III each received a $1,000 scholarship from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office’s School Resource Officers. Sheriff Robert Arnold presented the scholarships to Haley and Brooks. Both Haley and Brooks were selected based on their recommendations, grade point average, ACT scores and an essay on “How I Would Improve School Safety.” Haley mentioned having all students have identification tags with a bar code and photography to allow them to enter the school. Brooks suggested having mandatory classes for sixth grade students and freshmen to learn about the harm of drugs, how to notice signs of violence and suicidal tendencies, the importance of school, how school safety procedures work at school and other precautionary information.

Leave my Tuesday and Saturday night alone and I'll let you have the building for a dollar a head, let me have the concession stand and kinda keep the volume reasonable because of the neighbors. The 'Wheel' has the potential of being number one in their category in our area.

"Tennessee General's, -Back When our State was Famous" ~Brigadier General Benjamin McCulloch~ "The Confederate General Who Followed Davy Crockett to Texas" ~An old line frontier Tennessean in the truest sense, he was born November 11, 1811 in Rutherford County, Tennessee, one of twelve children and the fourth son of Alexander McCulloch and Frances Fisher LeNoir. His father, a Yale University graduate, was an officer on Tennessee Brigadier General John Coffee's staff during the Creek War of 1813 and 1814 in Alabama (and apparently at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815). His mother was a daughter of a prominent Virginian planter. The McCulloch family had been wealthy, politically influential, and socially prominent in North Carolina before the American Revolution, but Alexander had lost much of his inheritance and was unable even to educate his sons. (Two of Ben's older brothers had briefly attended a school in Tennessee taught by their neighbor, future Tennessee governor, Texas Revolution general, and Texas ...

I wish her well and hope she continues to build on the foundation my staff and I have worked so hard to develop since 2010.
Grow, Divide, Repeat (The latest blog post from Antsy McClain) I look across the field behind our house with reverence, knowing that just 150 years ago – only 3 or 4 generations from me – these tree lined hills were hosts to horror. Some of the bloodiest, noisiest battles of the Civil War were fought here in Rutherford County, Tennessee, where we now walk our dogs and nap in hammocks under the pink and white explosion of dogwood blooms. Our bird feeders are out here now, one for the yellow finches we love, and the other for cardinals. But the squirrels have assumed it was put there solely for their enjoyment and have effectively kept all but the larger, more aggressive birds away. This left me with no other recourse than to grease the pole to the feeders with Crisco. It has provided me with endless entertainment better than anything on television. I will forever be vexed by squirrels, but I am thankfully afforded the inalienable right to laugh at them in all their comic gluttony. The great grandparent ...

“Drug Take Back” and “Gun Buy Back” Murfreesboro Police and other partners are asking the general public to “surrender” prescription drugs at a “Drug Take Back” disposal site. The Murfreesboro Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Community Anti-Drug Coalition of Rutherford County (CADCOR), and St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital are working together to make another successful prescription “Drug Take Back” day. The Murfreesboro Police Department is also sponsoring another “Gun Buy Back” program. This program targets unwanted firearms, working or non-working in the household. It keeps firearms out of children’s, drug dealer’s, and gang member’s hands. This is an anonymous program and no names will be required!

Both events will be held next Saturday, April 26, 2013 from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon in the parking lot of St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital in front of the DePaul M ...

Email from a friend. In case you missed the update. Representative Rick Womick of Rutherford County reported on Ralph Bristols' talk radio show this morning that agreement has been reached with House and Senate chambers and leadership to greatly modify Tennessee implementation of the Common Core standards. The most important point for opponents is that the legislature will approve further implementation rather than the Governor and their Education Commissioners as was done previously in those 45 states. Another important achievement is the role of Pearson the British publisher and designer of the assessments as well as core-aligned textbooks is greatly reduced. A one year assessment of Tennessee results will be made by a neutral firm. There are a lot of details and we will be getting those shortly. Rick gave credit to Representative Billy Spivey and Senator Frank Nicely for carrying the bills. Did we get everything we wanted.. no. But it is a start. Some have often called the legislative process a '" ...

MURFREESBORO PARKS AND RECREATION EMPLOYEES TEAM UP WITH MTSU ARCHAEOLOGY PROFESSORS AND STUDENTS TO PROTECT AND STUDY LOCAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL CAVE SITE Staff of the Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department, archaeologists Dr. Tanya Peres and Dr. Shannon Hodge and their students with the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Middle Tennessee State University, Aaron Deter-Wolf with the Tennessee Division of Archaeology, and members of the Native History Association are involved in a collaborative effort to preserve, protect, and study the unique prehistoric and historic occupations of Black Cat Cave. This effort is in response to recent vandalism in the cave. Black Cat Cave is well known among Rutherford County locals as the reputed location of a speakeasy during Prohibition in the 1920s. Property including some 2.4 acres surrounding the entrance to the cave was donated to the City of Murfreesboro by the United States in 1971, for use as a public park and public recreation area. The entrances to th ...
When skeletal remains were found earlier this month off Big Springs Road in Rutherford County, one of the first calls the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office made was to a professor at Middle Tennessee State University, Sheriff Robert Arnold said.
Remains identified as Dale Gaines Skeletal remains have been identified as a Rutherford County man who was reported missing in September, said Sheriff Robert Arnold. The remains of Dale Gaines, 58, of Bristol Court were found Feb. 2 on Big Springs Road. Family members reported Gaines missing Sept. 15. He was last seen riding his bicycle in Murfreesboro. Gaines was undergoing treatment for cancer. He played basketball and ran track for Riverdale High School in the mid-1970s. Sheriff Arnold said he hopes the identification will ease Gaines’ family. “We extend our sympathy to Mr. Gaines’ family,” Sheriff Arnold said. “We hope the identification will help answer their concerns and bring them a sense of closure.” Detective Capt. David Hailey said the state medical examiner identified Gaines through DNA. The cause of death remains unknown but foul play is not suspected at this time. During a January press conference, Gaines’ brothers Jonah and Guster asked for citizens to give information about th ...

Another silent season for Nashville Superspeedway.. By: LARRY WOODY, Post Columnist Middle Tennessee's biggest 2013 racing story was no story. There was nothing new to report on the continued shutdown of Nashville Superspeedway. And the sounds of silence will continue in 2014. NASCAR has announced all of its touring series schedules for this season, and the huge racing complex located on the Wilson County/Rutherford County line is not among them. Dover Downs Motorsports, which opened the Superspeedway in 2001 amid high hopes and hoopla, ran its last race there in 2011 after struggling with dwindling attendance. It was a failed Field of Dreams. They built it, but the fans didn't come. Dover officials have indicated they are open to selling the track, but so far there have been no takers. Looking back at other 2013 racing headlines: The Chase fiasco: When Clint Bowyer intentionally spun out in the closing laps of the last "regular season" race at Richmond to manipulate the final running order, it threw the ...

No one can be certain about how to improve the economy. If someone thinks they really know, they are delusional. If someone like me, who knows that no one knows, says that they can certainly fix the economy, they are a liar. There are too many moving parts. If the U.S. talked China into changing its monetary policy a particular way, what effect would that have on agricultural employment in Rutherford County, Tennessee? You tell me. If a butterfly flaps its wings over Kansas, will it change the weather in Japan? I believe in certain principles. I believe that taking certain actions would help the economy. I think most, but not all, of you will agree with my ideas. But we don't know. Let's not get arrogant and angry if people disagree with us, because we may be wrong. I'm willing to fight for my ideas, though. Somebody has to do something. What we are doing now is not working. The single most important thing to do is to get rid of the Federal Reserve system. It is a scheme whereby people who are ...

Today has been a blessing to me as I joined Trinity Christian School's "Operation Shine." Mrs. Levinson's third grade class visited a soup kitchen and a food bank which serves Rutherford County. We then shopped at J's Salvage, each child with his/her own money made by making bead bracelets and selling them. Each one was able to buy several large cans of food which were then taken to Grace of God Rescue Mission to help with the many meals they supply for county residents. I was blessed to see how the children are learning to serve. We are blessed to be a blessing!
Tire, drive shaft, wheel whatever - when one is in the wrong place at the right or wrong time . . . My prayers for this family. "Northside North Fulton, Cherokee, Forsyth Flying drive shaft kills Canton woman, 77 Anne Hudson, 77, of Canton, was a passenger in a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox driven by her husband when she was struck shortly before 10:30 a.m. on I-24 in Rutherford County, Tenn. by a truck’s drive shaft that flew through her windshield Investigators believe the drive shaft of a 2008 Dodge Ram separated from the truck, struck a 2002 Saturn, then went through the windshield of the Chevrolet. The Chevrolet’s driver, 77-year-old Leroy Hudson, was not injured, but Anne Hudson died from her injuries. No criminal charges are expected in the wreck". ALEXIS STEVENS, AJC, 9/26/13
For the Hannah family relatives: After many years of research I have found the document that pinpoints the original Hannah farm of the family before the Hannah's moved to Green Hill in about 1873. Most of us can trace, from memory, our links to John Feleston "Buck" Hannah and wife, Syntha Cauhorn Hannah, who lived in Green Hill and were the parents of 13 children, from who all the Green Hill area Hannahs are descended. Buck Hannah's parents were Hugh Wells Hannah and Almedia Holtsford Hannah. Hugh's parents were John Hannah and Mary Wells Hannah. John and Mary Wells Hannah came from Lincoln County, North Carolina, where they were married in about 1821, to Rutherford County, Tennessee and on to Giles County and later to Lawrence County, Tennessee. In 1849, in Lawrence County, John got a land grant for 74 acres about 2 miles west of the current "square" of Lawrenceburg. The family reportedly lived on Crawfish Creek.

DID YOU KNOW? The proceeds of the 2013 Power of Pink will go toward Our Mission in Motion mobile mammography coach operated by St. Thomas Health, Susan G. Komen and Middle Tennessee Medical Center/Power of Pink and will provide for a portion of a nurse navigator’s salary, and will pay for local, indigent women’s mammograms and breast cancer care. In FY 2012, $46,855 was used for these patients’ mammograms and breast cancer care, helping 330 women. The Our Mission in Motion coach visited Rutherford County 11 times and performed 154 mammograms, 40% of which were charity care. All of the funds raised at WATS will stay in Rutherford County and provide care for Rutherford County women.

We helped the City Recreation with a large golf tournament and they helped us with our Girls on the Run 5k last month. We are partners with almost every non-profit in this community. Not to mention the numerous donations of free memberships for auctions and awards that the non-profits use for their own fund raisers. It must also be noted that giving promotes giving. Cleveland County has built YMCAs, Red Cross, Hospice, Life Enrichment, GWU buildings and almost every church in town has a family life center. Great causes get great support and the charitable intent of our region is spectacular. It has been proven over and over again that large gifts spur others to give . ...

The media talking about celebrity chef Paula Deen admitting to using racial slurs in the past reminded me of some of the things I experienced when I was growing up. It made me think of Mr. John Bright. I will hope that Robin Lattimore might weigh in here, because he is the resident historian of Rutherford County and beyond in NC and I'm sure he knows more of the facts than I do. John Bright was a black man who used to help my grandparents from time to time on the farm. That old man worked like a mule to provide for his family, as did my grandfather. He was in the barn or the field from way before sunup to sundown. My grandmother cooked a big dinner every day (lunch, to non-Southerners). Mr. Bright would not come in the house and eat at the table with the white folks, although my grandparents would have been glad for him to do so. He would eat on the porch or out in the yard. He was the son of slaves, and if memory serves me, he had a lot of children, all of whom obtained college degrees. I think at least ...

Radar, at 8:02 PM, shows more rain moving toward the three county area. An area of mostly showers (very little lightning currently showing up) extends from Hendersonville, through Travellers Rest and Greer SC, into Laurens and Union Counties. It is all moving northeastward at a pretty good clip and holding together. Some rain has recently developed over northern Rutherford County near Lake Lure into southwestern McDowell County, also moving northeastward. These showers should overspread our counties in the next 30 to 60 minutes, capable of producing an additional half-inch of rain before midnight. This is not good news for the areas already under a flash flood warning in eastern Burke and Caldwell Counties. We'll have to monitor for additional street and stream flooding. The threat for severe thunderstorms is increasing Monday afternoon as fairly strong upper level winds and shear ahead of an approaching frontal system collide with an unstable atmosphere.

Sad news from NCSD family.Coach Bob Ledford passed away at Hospice House of Rutherford County yesterday. The funeral arragement will be annouced by Harrelson Funeral and Cremation Services at Forest City. He was a super man and solid football coach for a short time at NCSD. He helped our football team to realize our potential and try to get to playoffs. His first year of coaching, we won 6 straight games and was ranked in the state. We did end up being 7-2 and had a chance to win Conference Championship at Cherokee. Unfortunately, Buddy Hill was hurt in a wreck in a week before and could not play against Cherokee. We lost badly but years has gone by and we realize how special that year was for all of us. He was beloved by many ball players from Class of 80 to 84. We will miss him indeed. He was also a teacher for Bricklaying (mason) for a good while. He has gone to a special place and will coach a team "upstairs" He will do a mighty fine job and has no pain or suffering. Chris Mac

REVIEW OF TRYOUT: Gentlemen, I wanted to let you know my thoughts on the tryout yesterday. First, let me say I am very proud of the first group that actually came out to be around the new guys and also get some more work. That gives me a great feeling that we are heading in the right direction. Going out in the snow with the cold temperatures and putting in that work is commendable and shows your commitment to this team, to the sport itself and to me and my staff. Second, let me say this, while I understand we all have lives, families, and this doesn't pay, this team is set up to be a true platform for second chances for you as players. As a staff, we are working very hard to promote this team, gain sponsors and fund this team so that this team doesn't become another Rutherford County statistic. The league we are in is a national level developmental football league and there are teams with serious credentials coming in. This is not a joke nor is it a back yard football gathering on a weekend. We a ...
Last week, Progress NC told you about a shocking power grab taking place in Raleigh: although NC Gov. Pat McCrory is a former Duke Energy employee who spent 29 years with the company, our right-wing legislature wants to hand him the power to appoint an entirely new State Utilities Commission. This is the very same commission which will decide if Duke Energy can impose a double-digit rate hike on residential electricity customers this year. But the proposed bill, Senate Bill 10, took a strange twist this morning in a state legislative committee. First, House leadership took out the section which fires the Utilities Commission. But then Rep. Mike Hager of Rutherford County reinserted language to include the Utilities Commission in SB10. Hager's maneuver worked, even though House Majority Leader Edgar Starnes, a Republican, opposed Hager's amendment, saying "If there's anything that's not broken in North Carolina, it's our Utilities Commission." It's enough to make your head spin. Especially since this odd . ...

Retro-cinema Packett I would like to Thank everyone so far for all the support that we have received from our community to help SAVE Retro Cinema!

So just for those who do not know what is going on with the movie theater, Hollywood is forcing us to go to digital projectors which is going to cost us $300,000 and this conversion has to be done by the end of April 2013. If we do not raise the funds to do the conversion then Rutherford County will NO longer have a movie theater. All projectors that use 35mm film will no longer have product (movies) available for them, which means we have no choice but to make the conversion because my family and myself have put way touch much money, blood, sweat, and tears into Rutherford County's only theater located in Forest City NC.

Locals Take Action To Prevent Gun Violence Posted: Feb 22, 2013 5:58 PM CST Updated: Feb 22, 2013 5:58 PM CST RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. - A group in Rutherford County gathered on Friday to speak out against gun violence. The group is sending letters to local lawmakers in hopes of raising awareness about the dangers of guns. The letters were delivered to Congressman Scott DesJarlais' office. "We want to stop gun violence and we want to stand for universal background checks as a first step to help protect the people in our communities," said Rebekah Mhaors-Manley with the group Standing Against Gun Violence.

a comment from our subscribers... About a year ago me and my family arrived in Rutherfordton a little after midnight to visit my parents. I was unloading our suitcases from the car and left the back open because I had more stuff to bring in. I was talking to my mom and the doorbell rang and it was a cop! I asked if I could help him and he asked me about my car and why the door was left open. Then he said there had been card broken into in the area . No big deal but when I went outside he was in my parents driveway with his blue lights on! Talk about overkill! Been there 10 minutes and saw blue lights!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am actively "NOT" supporting the No Kill Manchester TN group any longer. I guess because I am a "Pagan" the hypocrites on the page do not want a part of my support. In other words they have not a clue to what a pagan is or what we do. I don't have a problem with that. Althought from what I can see on their page, what goes around comes back around as in Karma because the Mayor's office won't return any of their calls. I'm just saying you can't treat people with disrespect yourself and expect to get respect in return from others. Ignorance and not taking the time to learn anything about anyone that is different from you. Well let's just say, I know in their beliefs their own divine frowns on judgement and judging others.
