(Cross Plains, TN) Tree Dedication to Beloved Teacher, Coach, & Vietnam Vet, Dale Mettler

After a fierce battle with A.L.S., and just weeks after an interview with Smokey Barn News back in 2019, local teacher, coach, and Vietnam Vet, Dale Mettler died, he was 71. Dale would be another victim of A.L.S..

To honor his memory a Pin Oak tree was planted at the school he loved so much, East Robertson High School.

“Thank you to everyone that came out on Saturday to honor Dad with the tree that was planted in his memory”

Donna Dorris and Mary Cook made a promise to Mr. Mettler that they would plant a Pin Oak at the school that he loved so much. “Mr. Mettler had lots of happy memories & made lifelong friends in this community.”

Pictured:  Donna Dorris, Mary Cook, Jeff Chatman, April Mettler, Kevin Evans, Kassie lane ………..SRO Seth Hopkins and Lisa Melton. CONTINUED…

Reported on November 3, 2019…

Beloved Teacher, Coach, & Vietnam Vet, Dale Mettler Dies, He Was 71

Mr. Mettler CONTINUED…

Smokey Barn News met Mr. Mettler at his home in Cross Plains back in 2019. Our interview (video) with Mr. Mettler has been added to the bottom of this report. Mr. Mettler wanted to reach out to the community, mostly to show his appreciation but he also wanted to talk about the disease that, in just weeks, would take his life, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, “A.L.S..”

During our interview with Mr. Mettler, he spoke of his love for teaching, coaching and Robertson County. Knowing that his time was short, Mr. Mettler wanted to thank Robertson County for welcoming him with open arms as he began his teaching career at East Robertson High School years ago.

Mettler’s passing came just five months after his A.L.S. diagnosis. After we released our interview with Mr. Mettler it was clear by the outpouring of love that he had touched many lives.

Just weeks before A.L.S. would claim his life, Mr. Mettler felt well enough to attend an A.L.S. golf charity event at The Legacy Golf Course in Springfield Tennessee. The event raised $25k for A.L.S. research. Mettler was featured on hole 15. FUL STORY

Dale Mettler was a hobbyist and loved riding horses, restoring cars and was an avid golfer.  Dale even collected Native American artifacts and turned them into jewelry.

Back in June, Doctors told Dale that he has little time left but his passing back in 2019 still came as a shock. With the clock ticking and while he was still able to effectually communicate, Dale wanted to reach out to the community about A.L.S. and a possible connection for Vietnam Veterans exposed to Agent Orange. He also talked about his fond memories at East Robertson High.

If you haven’t seen our interview with my Mettler we have added it for you below.

Here is her poem….

For the Love of the Game
by Riley Holloway

It’s the butterflies in your stomach
When you wake up on tournament day
It’s the gratefulness you feel inside
When taking the field to play
It’s the warm-ups with your teammates
And building that special bond
It’s hoping the best for all of them
In this game and beyond
It’s wondering if you worked too much
Or maybe not enough
It’s knowing that no matter what
Your job is to play tough
It’s the adrenaline pumping through you
When the umpire says ‘Play ball’
It’s feeling the weight of the bat in your hands
And sending one over the wall
It’s the swell of pride when you make a great play
And hearing the crowd cheer with glee
It’s the frustration of losing precious time
When your coach and the ump don’t agree
It’s the thrill in every victory
And the humility of each defeat
It’s the handshakes and the high fives
When gameplay is complete
It’s exhaustion and melancholy on the drive home
Wishing you were back on the field
It’s the determination to improve more every day
Because that’s what hard work yields
It’s dreaming of the day you commit
And what school will announce your name
It’s sacrifice, pure joy, and grit
All for the love of the game

(White House, TN)

Braeden Grieb of White House High School was one of the  National Merit Semifinalists.

Less than 1% of US high school seniors qualified for this prestigious honor.

More than 1.5 million students entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT, NMSQT), which serves as an initial screen of program entrants. Nationwide, 16,000 students were selected as semifinalists.

To become a finalist, these students and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.

“Our students have earned a prestigious honor for themselves and their schools,” said Dr. Del Phillips, Director of Sumner County Schools. “This recognition is a culmination of their hard work and dedication. They are excellent ambassadors for Sumner County, and we are excited to see what they accomplish in the future.”

National Merit finalists will be announced in February 2022.

Crestview Elementary Welcomes State Education Commissioner

The Tennessee Commissioner of Education, Dr. Penny Schwinn, paid a visit to Crestview Elementary School on Friday, October 1, to visit some classrooms and see first-hand the level of education that students are receiving.

Schwinn, accompanied by several local elected officials and school administrators, sat in on two separate classrooms and a library reading session. Her observations of the activities were positive and encouraging.

“Robertson County is a shining example of a school district emphasizing early literacy and building strong readers,” she said. “Their team remains focused on foundational elements that will translate to long-term success, and their families, students, and school-staff have much to be proud of!”

Robertson Community Health Foundation, Inc. created following sale of NorthCrest Medical Center

100% of investment earnings to be used to improve quality of health for people in area

(Springfield, TN) — The Robertson Community Health Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) foundation, has been created from the net proceeds of the sale of NorthCrest Medical Center to HCA Healthcare. The new foundation is led by a 10-member Board of Directors. These individuals have long standing ties to Robertson County and previously served on the Board of Trustees of NorthCrest Medical Center. Sam Ramsey is serving as Chairman of the Board and President of the new foundation.

NorthCrest Medical Center has served the people of Robertson County and the surrounding area for more than 25 years. As the hospital joins TriStar Health, an affiliate of HCA Healthcare, the foundation has a new opportunity to continue to serve the people of this region. Upon completion of the sale’s escrow commitments and the finalization of financial report filings with governmental agencies, it is anticipated that there will ultimately be, approximately $14 – $16 million as the initial endowment to the foundation. The Robertson Community Health Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors will use the investment earnings, while preserving the initial endowment, to make grants to tax-exempt healthcare related organizations in the area. These grants will support services addressing local determinants of health and healthcare education.

The Foundation Board expects to have a significant portion of the funds available for investment within the next 18 months and will begin evaluating grants sometime in early 2023. The Board has engaged Regions Institutional Services to be their investment manager for the funds.

“We anticipate that residents and healthcare related tax-exempt organizations in Robertson County and adjacent communities will be interested in learning more about the work of the Foundation and the process for grant application. We have launched a website, www.robertsonchf.org, that has additional information and details,” said Sam Ramsey, Robertson Community Health Foundation President.

Meals On Wheels Needs You! Volunteers Needed In Robertson County

Meals On Wheels Needs You! Volunteers Needed In Robertson County

Meals-on-Wheels has become a lifeline for many local residents but it’s more than just food, it’s friendship too.

Meals-on-Wheels provides meals to seniors age 60+ but volunteers also give emotional support and a daily well-being check on seniors who live alone. To keep this vital service going takes volunteers.

The meals are not delivered by autonomous flying drones, they are delivered by real people who can spin a good yarn, offer a needed hug or just listen to a lonely heart. We are really in need of volunteers Monday, Wednesday and Friday around 10:30 AM to deliver meals in Robertson County so please reach out to us today.

Over 11 million meals served to seniors in Middle Tennessee

“A hot meal and a good friend are two of life’s greatest enjoyments. Mid-Cumberland Meals-on-Wheels has been providing both for more than 40 years. In fact, we provide congregate meals, home-delivered meals, outreach, nutrition education, supportive services, and recreational activities for individuals age 60 and older.”

Best Lunch Date You Will Ever Have!

We love to have individuals, businesses, churches, girl and boy scout troops, grade school classes and civic groups come to volunteer! It doesn’t matter whether you are one person or a group of 20, come volunteer! We would love to have you!”

TOP 5 REASONS WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS

1. Volunteers foster a sense of family for a lonely senior

2. If the program had to pay delivery drivers instead of using volunteers, the program would serve 25% fewer meals. Volunteers are critical to meals-on-wheels!

3. Many volunteers will bring their children to deliver so they are teaching their children the importance of “giving back” to the vulnerable members of their community

4. Volunteers deliver the only meal a senior may have in a day

5. Volunteers save lives! Volunteers have been able to call 911 for seniors who have collapsed in their homes.

Meals-on-Wheels Volunteer opportunities are for packing and delivering a weekday lunchtime meal. So come on out and bring a big smile and join the Meals-on-Wheels family!

All volunteers will need to complete a volunteer registration form. Volunteer Today! Click Here to Register

Rate the Plates: Gov. Lee Unveils New License Plate Design Picked by Tennesseans

300,000+ Tennesseans cast their vote

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee unveiled the state’s next standard license plate chosen by Tennesseans through a statewide vote.
“In our 225th year of statehood, we invited Tennesseans to cast their vote and help select the state’s next license plate,” said Gov. Lee. “I’m proud to announce the winning design that will represent our unique grand divisions and take its place in Tennessee history.”

More than 300,000 Tennessee residents cast a vote, with 42% voting for the winning design.

New plates will be available online and in-person beginning January 3, 2021 as residents complete their annual tag renewal. Up to 100,000 plates per week will be produced to meet initial inventory demands.

Per Tennessee statute, the plate is redesigned every eight years if funds are approved in the General Assembly’s annual budget. Statute also requires the display of “Tennessee,” “Volunteer State” and “TNvacation.com” on the plate, as well as county name and expiration year decal locations. Statute provides that Tennesseans may select an “In God We Trust” plate option.

This new license plate design will replace the current plate that launched in 2006 with modifications in 2011, 2016 and 2017.
