MJ woman hits the red carpet

From a farm on Central Pike to the red carpets in Los Angeles, Terri Minton has had a lot of fun in the acting world. 

“It’s been a crazy, amazing ride,” said Minton. 

Minton has been acting for almost 20 years. She started when a friend recommended it to her, and she eventually got a part in a Collin Raye video, “One Boy, One Girl.”

Through lots of hard work in more music videos, commercials, short films, and TV shows, Minton landed a part in “Army Wives” where she had a scene with one of the series regulars. She went on to play Tim McGraw’s assistant in the feature film “Country Strong”, and played Powers Boothe’s nurse on the first season of “Nashville”. 

But Minton has found her way into family films and television, something she thinks there needs to be more of out there. 

“We need something we can take the whole family to,” said Minton. 

She said she likes the family films she has been a part of because they all have redeeming messages, and it is important. 

“I totally believe it is God’s timing,” said Minton of her move into the family films. 

After doing a film called “Summer Snow” a few years back, the director Nancy Criss contacted her about a lead part in a film called “A Horse for Summer.” Her part was to play the wife of Dean Cain. 

Minton got the part and flew out to Phoenix, Az. to shoot the film. Recently, she got to walk the red carpet for its premiere in Los Angeles, Calif. 

That led to another part on a syndicated Fox show that will be airing this fall called “The Sparrows.” Look for that coming soon.

Hunter running for Executive Committeewoman
Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Yvonne Gregory Hunter, a native of Smith County, graduated from Trousdale High School and went on to obtain a degree in Finance from MTSU.  A local business owner since 1967, for the last 33 years Hunter has specialized in insurance and currently works for Physicians Mutual Insurance Co.  She has been a member and Ambassador for the Lebanon/Wilson Chamber for many years. Hunter was Miss Wilson Co. Sr. Tennessee in 2006 and Miss Tennessee Senior America in 2007. She is a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Lebanon, where she sings in the choir and teaches 5th grade Sunday school.  She is a member of the Bert Coble Singers and First Baptist Church LOL Choir.

“The State Executive Committeewoman is an important job,” said Hunter. “She has an ex-officio position on all the County Parties in District 17, and is responsible for being the liaison between the State and County Parties. I plan on attending as many county events in my district as possible, so I can take your concerns to the State Party.  Additionally, the State Executive Committee votes for the State Party Chairman or Woman,  adopts rules to promote the success of the Republican Party, establishes policies that guide and direct the county parties and works with the Legislature to promote issues of concern to you either as a committee or as an individual.  I will represent all Counties and Republican groups in a fair and unbiased manner. I am against Common Core and the Federal effort to undermine States Rights. I ask for your vote in the Republican Primary.”
