When things break down, Stoner Creek student Dix there to help
Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Devin Dix is a third grader at Stoner Creek Elementary School, and he has a knack for taking things apart and putting them back together. 

Last year he was in Megan Hamilton’s second grade class, and her pencil sharpener kept breaking. Devin asked her why doesn’t she just take the pencil sharpener apart and fix it? Ms. Hamilton didn’t know how to do that so she let Devin take it home and fix it. He took apart the sharpener and found that the motor was about to die. Devin took the old wrapping off the transformer, bought a new magnet coil and put it back together and now it works just fine. 

Devin has always liked taking things apart. When asked why he liked taking things apart he said, “I want to know how it was built and how it works.” He works on all sorts of devices, but his favorite things to work on are electronic devices. He has fixed computer speakers and remotes. 

Devin has no training and hasn’t looked up how to build things, but he has helped his dad fix things around the house. One day he just started taking devices apart at home and taught himself how to put them back together. Once when he was in daycare, he took apart a table, taking out all the screws and everything. 

Taking things apart is something Devin has done since he was little, and he enjoys it. He is an intelligent young man and wants to be an inventor when he gets older.

The Wilson County School Board voted to not accept a proposal from the City of Mt. Juliet that would see the City have a $200,000 credit taken out of the $449,000 owed because of a liquor by the drink tax that hadn’t been paid because of an oversight.

For the first time in its over 30 year history, the Mt. Juliet Help Center will soon have a permanent home. 

“It’s truly been a labor of love and would not have been possible without the help of many selfless and generous people of Mt. Juliet,” said Director Carolyn Smith. 

While the new facility is being built, the Mt. Juliet Help Center will be located at the old Chief Equipment Rental building at 11935 Lebanon Road for approximately six months. The permanent location will be at 3425B N. Mt. Juliet Road on land purchased from the Celebration Lutheran Church. The building will be built by Goddard Construction. 

The Mt. Juliet Help Center was organized in March of 1983 by seven local churches. Throughout the years, the center has been located at several different places. With generous support from local churches and individuals, United Way, Wilson County and Mt. Juliet City Governments, the Mt. Juliet Help Center continues to provide food and utility assistance for those in need. 

The Help Center provides limited utility assistance for registered clients and assistance with finding community aid and information in areas such as homelessness, disabilities and domestic abuse. The Help Center food pantry provides, for anyone, gently used clothing, bread and bakery items daily. For registered clients, they offer canned goods, snacks, frozen foods and perishable items. To be eligible for registration, people must reside within West Wilson County (west of Highway 109 to the Davidson County line). 

The Mt. Juliet Help Center strives to provide quality short term emergency assistance delivered with warmth, compassion, and friendliness while being a church, community partner and good neighbor.
