Facebook post sparks theater robbery scare
Tuesday, May 28, 2013

A Facebook post sparked a scare that the Regal Cinemas 14 in Providence had been robbed Saturday. 

“A robbery did not occur at the theater nor in Mt. Juliet,” said Mt. Juliet Police Department Sgt. Tyler Chandler. 

Chandler said it was the MJPD’s understanding that a patron at the theater sent a text meesage to his wife claiming he was robbed that afternoon. However, he was using figurative language and referring to his spending during the theater trip. His wife posted on Facebook that he was robbed. That sparked calls to Mt. Juliet Police. 

Chandler said there had been no recent crimes at the theater. 

MJHS holds Renaissance Fair

The Renaissance Fair, run by social studies teacher Samantha Davenport and English teacher Lori Scott, is a time for our school to come together over history and learn how it affects us today.

It started as a way to connect world history to English as the class reads about Renaissance and Shakespearean times, and has grown into a Mt. Juliet High School tradition.

After covering the Renaissance in class, the students are given a week to prepare an exhibit covering the many aspects over the Renaissance era. 

In order to minimize the cost of the fair, students bring supplies from home, as well as whatever the teacher can provide. Daily grades are given throughout the week as the class works hard to finish the project, and a test grade is given to the final product. 

“It’s a really good chance for the students to show project ownership, and it gets better every year,” said Davenport.         

The fair usually takes place outside or in the gym, where students from freshmen English classes can attend. The class is graded on the presentation of whatever aspect of the Renaissance they were assigned, how well they teach the freshmen, and their correct use of language and grammar.

American Cancer Society’s 100th Birthday Celebration – May 22nd

One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight of a lifetime – the fight against cancer. Now it’s time to join together to finish the fight. Today 2 out of 3 people diagnosed with cancer are surviving. In fact, more than 400 people a day in the U.S. are celebrating birthdays that would have otherwise been lost to the disease. We want to change that statistic from 2 out of 3 surviving cancer today in the U.S. to 3 out of 3. But we need your help.

Join the American Cancer Society at Buffalo Wild Wings in Mt. Juliet for our 100th birthday celebration on May 22nd. All day from 11am-11pm part of the proceeds from your meal will support the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life in Mt. Juliet. There will also be a special birthday party with balloons, cake, and fun starting at 7pm.

Silence won’t finish this fight – action will. Our 100th birthday is another opportunity to be as loud and active as possible in the battle to end cancer. To get involved in your local community’s Relay For Life or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345 or go to

Now is the time to finish the fight. Make some noise by taking action now!

Birthday Celebration from 11am-11pm at Buffalo Wild Wings, Cake at 7pm. May 22nd

American Legion Auxiliary Unit 281 Poppy Distribution
Wednesday, May 22, 2013

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 281 has declared Saturday, May 25, 2013, as their official poppy distribution day in Mt. Juliet. Displays will be set up at the Providence Kroger store and Auxiliary members will be on hand to distribute poppies, answer questions the public might have about the significance of the poppy and collect donations. Members of the Tyler Cates American Legion Post 281 will also be assisting.

The poppy program is one of the most important programs of the American Legion Auxiliary. The poppy became the official flower of remembrance for the American Legion Family in memory of the soldiers who fought in the battlefields of Belgium during WWI.

Crepe paper poppies are hand made by disabled or hospitalized veterans. Supplies to make the poppies are provided free of charge by the American Legion Auxiliary. These veterans are paid a stipend for each poppy they make.

Poppy donations received by each Auxiliary Unit are put into a separate fund to be used exclusively for veterans and the welfare of veteran families. Wearing a poppy can honor the sacrifices made by our service members while assisting the living. So please come by the Providence Kroger store on Saturday, May 25th and show your support between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
