Sheriff’s Office recruiting explorers
Tuesday, December 9, 2014

From the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office

Young people between ages 14-18 are getting the opportunity to learn about a career in law enforcement as the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office gets its Explorers Post #328 classes underway.

So far, 15 students from Lebanon and Wilson Central High Schools have begun taking classes and learning about various aspects of law enforcement careers. The program, which began in October, includes more than 60 hours of training in criminal law, officer safety and survival, arrest and search procedures, emergency management, crime prevention, CPR, report writing, crime scene investigation, riding with sworn officers and a host of other skills.

“We are pleased young people in our area are interested in law enforcement, and we hope to get them started on a path to a professional vocation regardless of whether they decide to pursue a law enforcement career,” Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan said. “It is geared to help young men and women with opportunities in citizenship service, fitness and social responsibility.”

The Explorers is a division of Boys Scouts of America and is open to Wilson County students who have completed the eighth grade as long as they meet the requirements, have parental approval and must maintain at least a “C” average in school. The Explorers are learning under the guidance of Post Advisor Sgt. James Lanier and three associate advisers, Deputies Emy Bates, Christopher Keyes and James Smith.

“This is a program to teach self-discipline, self-respect and integrity,” said Sgt. Lanier. “We expect the Explorers with Post #328 to be mirrors of ourselves and to conducts themselves as a role model for others whether they are in class or participating in everyday activities just as we do.” 

In the long run, Explorers will have the chance to compete with other explorers, including those across the county and possibly internationally. 

Classes are taught every other Monday at 6 the Sheriff’s Office training room. Anyone interested in participating can come to the class but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The registration is $25. A complete list of classes and dates is available upon request.

Weston’s new song tackles Alzheimer’s
Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Pam Weston, a Southern Gospel singer, who lives in Mt. Juliet, just recently released a new song “Mama Can’t Remember” in March. The song is about her mother, Charlotte Carlo, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 80 and will be turning 94 in February. Weston says her mother needs full time care now, but still recognizes her and her family. 

Weston co-wrote the song with Glen Bates who lost his mother to Alzheimer’s two years ago. “The song is about what we learned from our moms and how now she can’t remember any of the wisdom she’s given us,” said Weston. They are trying to raise Alzheimer’s awareness with this song, and believe it is something everyone can relate to. 

Weston has been singing since she was young and continues to sing today at churches and retirement comminutes. She does a lot of traveling with her Ministry as well. Her first song “Graduation Day” debuted on the Gospel Charts in March 2012, and you can find her new song on YouTube. 

You can visit if you would like to contact her or get more information about her and upcoming performances.
