6th Annual Walk for HD set for September
Tuesday, July 21, 2015

The 6th Annual Walk for HD Team Hope Walk & 5K is Saturday, Sept. 26 at Charlie Daniels Park.

The walk, which started in Mt. Juliet in 2010, returns this year after a few years in other locations. Organizers wanted a return to Mt. Juliet because it was started here originally to honor a family who was fighting Huntington’s Disease, and the community came out in full support.

“The first walk was huge,” said organizer Gina Becker. 

Organizers are looking to raise $25,000 this year to fight Huntington’s disease. Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure. HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Today, there are 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease.

In the six years since the walk started, huge strides have been made with the money raised. Just a few years ago, patients would have to travel to Atlanta, Ga. or Indianapolis, Ind. to receive treatment. This past January, Walk for HD received Center of Excellence status at Vanderbilt Hospital, which means that HD patients can receive not only physical care, but mental, emotional and even guidance for financial options. 

“This is huge in our world and we are happy to have Dr. Claausen and staff on board,” said Becker. 

If you would like to register for the walk, go to The walk and race will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m. Check in time is 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. For more information, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

City officials alert TDOT to dangerous road
Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Mt. Juliet city officials have alerted the Tennessee Department of Transportation to a dangerous area on I-40 that has caused 30 wrecks this year. 

The spot is near the 226 mile marker almost directly under the overpass, and of the 30 crashes, eight have reported injuries. All the wrecks have been caused by heavy rain and have caused cars to hyrdoplane. In recent weeks, a father and son lost control and got trapped under a 18-wheeler.
