Local Firefighters from across the county worked together on local calls and beyond, assisting in the East Tennesse fires.

The Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department has been busy lately with our normal workload and several deployments to assist other agencies.

On Tuesday several companies were sent to assist the White House Community Fire Department with a barn and silo fire.

Wednesday crews answered several calls for assistance with trees and wires down as the storm front moved through. On Wednesday night an Engine and a crew were dispatched to Russellville, Ky at the request of Tennessee EMA to assist with a brush fire that was threatening a nearby large subdivision.

On Thursday Tennessee EMA again requested our help with the wildfires in east Tennessee. A brush truck and two firefighters were sent to the Sevier County area.

On arrival, that crew was immediately assigned to a task force and went to work. Their shift finally ended 26 hours later when they were told to stand down, but were due back in 12 hours for another tour of duty. That crew will remain deployed until relieved.

At the same time other crews responded to an additional 28 calls for assistance.

“Teams got back today at noon and looking forward to some sleep”

-Mike Cooper Assistant Chief, PVVFD

Firefighter Crews from Ashland City & Gallatin Fire Dept assist in the East Tennesse fires

Springfield Fire joined the efforts…

Springfield Fire Department Lieutenant Dustin Dudley and Firefighters Matt Vogle, Josh Lackey, and Terry Clinard deployed to Wears Valley, TN in Engine 3 for a wildland fire with a large list of Middle Tennessee departments to assist with the fire.

Additionally, on March 30th, Lieutenant Dustin Dudley, along with Firefighters, Josh Hesson, and Timothy Tawater traveled in Engine 4 to Russellville, KY for a mulch yard fire that burnt several structures and threatened a neighbor due to the high winds.
Thank you Springfield Fire Department for your service to Springfield and beyond! – City of Springfield

Congratulations to Springfield Firefighter Matt Vogle on achieving his Fire Officer 1 certification through the Tennessee Commission on Firefighting!

Robertson County School Board Member Appointed To Statewide Public Education Board

Connie Hogan, 10-year Robertson County School Board member and current Board Chair, has been appointed as an at-large board member of the Tennessee School Board Association. She began her term in January and is one of four at-large members. In this position she will influence decisions and directions that extend beyond Robertson County Schools to now include all public-school districts in the state.

The TSBA was first formed in 1939 to provide a collective voice for local public-school systems. In 1953 the State Legislature officially recognized the organization as, “the organization and representative agency of the members of school boards of Tennessee.”

A 19-member board acts as a liaison between the Association and local school boards. Hogan’s appointment to this board was at the request of TSBA Executive Director, Dr. Tammy Grissom.

Hogan said the experience is already an education for her and one she truly values.

“This is an honor and I’m excited about it,” she said. “Getting together with other board members from across the state has been a real eye-opening experience.”

Coming from her experience as a retired schoolteacher and current school-board member, she said this position is yet another one she can use to further public education, saying, “I look at every aspect that I can in order to see how I can help that child in the classroom.”

Hogan will continue her responsibilities with RCS as she assumes this additional position to enhance the role of public education in Tennessee.

Dear Editor; – Resurrection…

Years ago I considered myself to be a good person. I never did anything seriously bad like murder or rape, so I was confident I was going to heaven when I died.

However, what is the definition of “good.” The dictionary says “good” is to be “morally excellent. The Bible says that God is good, and the Ten Commandments are His standard of goodness. Getting into heaven by good deeds demands absolute perfection and no one is that good.

When I honestly looked into the mirror of the Ten Commandments, God’s law, I realized I was guilty of breaking them and had sinned against the God that gave me life. Keep in mind that God sees lust as adultery (Matt. 5:28) and hatred as murder (1 John 3:15). The truth is, no one can keep the 10 Commandments. Their purpose in the Bible is to show you that you are a sinner. God’s Word in Romans 3:20 says, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” On Judgment Day every sin we have ever committed (even secret sins) will come out as evidence of our guilt.

Because God is perfect, just and holy, He must punish sin wherever it’s found. I was destined for eternal punishment in hell. The Bible says, for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Rom. 3:23). On Judgment Day we will be found guilty, and end up in Hell forever.

God did something special so we would not go to hell. Through His love and mercy He became a man through Jesus Christ, died on the cross to take our punishment, and then he rose from the dead (Romans 5:8). We broke God’s law, and Jesus paid the penalty for our sins in full. All we have to do is truly repent (confess and turn from sin) and trust in Jesus Christ, and God will forgive our sins and grant eternal life with him in heaven.

The resurrection of the Christ is God’s guarantee that those who believe on Jesus as Savior will not perish but have everlasting life. This is reason for celebration.

Public Announcement: The Long Term Care Ombudsman program in middle TN is getting ready for volunteer certification training.

Our program provides advocacy for residents in long-term care facilities, which include nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and homes for the aged. There are over 185 long-term care facilities in our 13 county district and we rely very heavily on volunteers.

Volunteers Needed for Robertson County

Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman program advocates for the rights of thousands of residents in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and homes for the aged in Robertson County and 12 additional counties in Middle TN. The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is a partner agency with the United Way of Robertson County. Ombudsman staff consists of two District Ombudsmen, an Ombudsman Assistant, and 15 trained volunteers. Trained, certified Ombudsman volunteers pay regular visits to these facilities where they spend time with residents, monitor conditions, investigate complaints, educate regarding abuse and neglect and protect residents’ rights. The program offers mediation, complaint resolution, and public education for residents and their families. Covid restrictions and resulting isolation have resulted in a greater need for independent, objective observation and reporting.

The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is actively recruiting for volunteers in the Robertson County area. Volunteer applicants must pass a background check and attend a 16 hour classroom training. The next training session will be held May 4th and 5th.

Those interested in assisting have until Monday, April 25 to contact the program by sending an email to [email protected] or by calling 615-850-3918

April 5-8: Greenbrier High School Theatre Presents CLUE for Spring Production

All the familiar characters, props, and rooms will be on stage for the Greenbrier High School Theatre Program’s presentation of CLUE for its fall stage production, running April 5, 7 and 8 in the Greenbrier Auditorium.

“Everybody is familiar with CLUE, whether it’s through the board game, the movie, or the play, so we thought it would be a perfect production for our return to the stage,” said Mrs. Shelley Harris, director of the GHS theatre program. “It’s a whimsical production that will entertain and also have the audience trying to figure out who did it.”

The performances will be held at 6 p.m. nightly on the dates above. Tickets are $5 per adult and $3 per student with free admission for all faculty and staff.

Based on the iconic Hasbro board game and the hit 1985 movie, CLUE is a farcical murder mystery based on a mysterious dinner party. The memorable cast of characters, including Wadsworth the Butler, Miss Scarlet, and Colonel Mustard, are all under suspicion and forced to figure who the killer is, how they did it, and where.

Additional Material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price
