Businesses keep coming to MJ
Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Things are picking up in the economy, and Mt. Juliet keeps pulling in new businesses. 

Several have recently opened like Firehouse Subs and Jet’s Pizza, but many are coming along soon. 

Mirko Pasta, Bar-B-Cutie and Martin’s Barbecue should be opening shortly. 

Several others are on the horizon. 

Kirkland’s will be opening near Two Rivers Ford with a new plaza that still has some hurdles to go through before being built. 

A new Goodwill has been approved in planning and will be coming on Providence Parkway behind where the Walgreens is now. 

Pier 1 Imports has broke ground in that same area, and will be located next to Regions Bank. 

Ascend Federal Credit Union and White Castle will be coming to Paddocks as well. 

Several places are most likely coming, but are not official. Chuck E. Cheese and Sephora are among the businesses that are possibly looking to open in Mt. Juliet. Sephora is currently located in J.C. Penney’s. 

The Dollar General on Lebanon Road that was heavily damaged during the tornado will not be returning. City Manager Kenny Martin says he is trying to recruit a restaurant to come to that location. Mark’s Automotive, which was located on the backside of that building, will be relocated. 

There is still no indication that Costco, Sam’s Club or Whole Foods will be coming to Mt. Juliet in the near future.

MJHS choirs brings home four trophies
Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Mt. Juliet High School Choirs brought home 4 Superior Trophies  from the Middle Tennessee Vocal Association Choral Festival.  The festival was held at the First United Methodist Church of Murfreesboro, Feb. 26.   

Sandy Elliott, MJHS Choir Director said “It was an amazing day!    Not only were our kids outstanding in performance, but their behavior exemplified true ambassadors for Mt. Juliet High School.”  

Superior is the highest score.  The scores were as follows:  

Mixed Choir - SOUL Choir = 10

Men’s Choir - MOVE = 10.562

Ladies Choir - LOVE = 11.14

Advanced Mixed Choir - Vocal Ensemble = 11.64

Elliott said the students went above and beyond meeting the state and national standards in performance.  

“These students have worked on techniques, notes and rhythms for weeks.  But, what made them so successful is that they truly understand the cultural and musical concepts of the songs and they were able to communicate this to the audience.  I am so proud of them and their achievements!” 

The four MJHS choirs qualified to compete at the State ACDA Choral Festival to be held in April at David Lipscomb University. The MJHS Vocal program  Choirs have qualified to compete at the State level for the last 10 years consecutively. There are approximately 190 students in the choirs at MJHS and our choirs continually earn Superior ratings at Regional, State and National Festivals.
