In honor of the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, Steven Smartt has set a personal goal to perform the National Anthem 100 times during 2014. He welcomes invitations from schools, civic organizations, sporting events, and any occasion where a performance of the National Anthem (on solo trumpet) would be appropriate. And, yes, everyone is encouraged to sing along. He started his journey Thursday morning at Lakeview Elementary School. 
Steven Smartt, Ph.D., resides in Mt. Juliet and has worked as a research and academic administrator at Vanderbilt University for more than 30 years. He also is a part-time professional musician and performs with several bands and artists, locally and nationally. He is a volunteer teacher at the W.O. Smith Community Music School in Nashville. The 2014 National Anthem project seeks to promote historical awareness of the Star Spangled Banner and the National Anthem, and to honor America.

This Week In...1983
Tuesday, January 7, 2014

In this week’s “This Week In…” we will move ahead a year and look at what was happening in the second week of 1983. 

Wilson County made a list of roadwork needs for the area. One of those on the list was a need for warning lights at the intersection of I-40 and Mt. Juliet Road. There were no lights or a stop sign at that time, and the accident rate was three times the normal rate. Also, 12 residents on Posey Hill Road, between Beckwith Road and Central Pike, requested that their gravel road be paved. Also, a wooden bridge on Stewarts Ferry Pike was to be repaired because it had deteriorated. 

The County Commission was also planning to ask the Tennessee State Legislature to lift the drinking age from 19 to 21. 

The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet also corrected a previous story that said the Mt. Juliet Chief of Police’s salary was $26,020. It was actually $16,020. 

The Mt. Juliet Lady Bears improved to 16-0 with wins over Dupont and Hendersonville. The Lady Bears leading scorer in both games was Kim Satterfield. The Bears split their games, beating Dupont, but losing to Hendersonville. Steve Clemmons led the Bears in scoring in both of those games.
