Along with meeting the Easter Bunny, the event will feature trackless train rides offered by D&H Railroad, based in Mt. Juliet.  Trackless trains hold 16 to 20 people and are open to all ages, so parents can ride with their children!  The trackless trains will run through the Providence Marketplace town center from Books-A-Million to Regal Cinemas for the entire length of the event, so be sure to check them out!

The “Spring Fling” will also offer deluxe face painting to attendees.  Paintopia Face Painting uses the highest quality, FDA approved, cosmetic grade face paints, glitters, embellishments, and tattoo inks.  All face paints wash off with baby wipes and mild soap and water, so you don’t have to worry about removal.  

“Providence Marketplace is excited to welcome spring and celebrate with our patrons,“ said Erin Meek, Providence Marketplace Assistant Property Manager.  “The Easter Bunny, train rides and face painting are sure to be a fun afternoon for families with children of all ages.  We hope you’ll grab your camera and come join us!”

Commander Run series set for April 13
Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Are you ready for the toughest run in Tennessee? Commander Run offers a fierce running series held on a challenging course with extreme obstacles where participants push their limits and celebrate the challenge of conquering nature at its best. You will be fed one tough endurance event that will be the adrenalin rush of your life. Mark your calendar for April 13.

From beginner trail racers and mud run participants to hardcore warriors, tough guys and marathon runners – there is something for everyone.  The Commander Run Series challenges athletes of any age or ability by offering three unique runs: The Extreme 5K, The Mini-Extreme and The Cross-Country 5K.

If you are up to the test of an insane obstacle race then The Commander Extreme 5K will demand every ounce of your strength, ingenuity and animal instinct. You will test your ability to run, climb, jump, crawl, and muscle your way through by having to conquer whatever obstacles get in your way. This race is for participants age 14 and older and will test your all-around toughness, strength, stamina, fitness, and mental determination. Upon your victory you will understand at the finish line why the reward is worth the challenge...then you can celebrate with friends and a muddy fist in the air.

For those not up to that challenge, there is The Commander Mini Extreme that offers a 1.6 mile course with obstacles designed to offer an alternative to the Extreme 5K. It is suitable for up-and-coming Extreme participants and is perfect for team building.  Participants join in the fun as they complete a shorter, less difficult obstacle course as the ‘Extremers’. This obstacle course tests your resilience, strength, stamina, quick decision making skills and ability to laugh in the face of adversity while building resolve and self esteem. 

The Cross Country 5K is an adventure race that requires participants to navigate a 5K trail-running course – minus the obstacles. It differs from other local 5K’s by going off-road - traveling trails through a beautiful course that gets you in touch with nature. It definitely will be one of the more unique social events of the year.

“We welcome everyone to join us for the Second Annual Commander Run.  The extreme race series is all about having fun and we have some new, extreme obstacles planned to compliment the course,” stated Jon Shoulders, President, Friendship Christian School.

The Commander Run is slated for Saturday April 13. The Commander Run Event Site is on the beautiful 50-acre campus of Friendship Christian School located at 5400 Coles Ferry Pike, Lebanon, Tennessee. The family friendly race features chip timing. Proceeds from the event benefit Friendship Christian School and are tax deductible. Mark your calendar and make a commitment to meet the extreme challenge of the Commander Run. Register online at 

In conjunction with the race weekend, on April 12 plan to come out to the Commander Carb-Out!  Prepare for peak performance with our pasta extravaganza. More information is available on the website.

Commissioners start process for interstate exit at Central Pike
Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Kenny Howell

Managing Editor

The Board of Commissioners got the ball rolling on getting a new I-40 interchange on Central Pike at the meeting Monday. 

There were two items on the agenda pertaining to the interchange. The first was a resolution saying the board supported it. The other was an ordinance appropriating funds not to exceed $75,000 for engineering assistance to prepare an Interchange Access Request, project programming assistance for amendments to the MPO Transportation Improvement Program, and improvements to Central Pike and S. Mt. Juliet Road. 

The ordinance is necessary to the Providence Central project, which will possibly bring Class A office buildings, more retail and multi and single family homes. 

The interchange is one of the later phases of the project, and will still be a few years away if it happens. The project will be done by TDOT, and was not on their three-year plan for 2012-2015. 

In other actions, the board approved $35,500 for fire hall site access improvements, a transfer of donations to the Explorer program, and a site agreement for the cell tower the City leases at Crown Castle on York Road.
