No to Anonymous

There have been two comments on this blog in the last few days that specifically were 'attacks' against a Smyrna resident.

This is not the place

It really is that simple. If you have an issue you'd like me to look into please write it out and message me, or email me. If these issues you have written about are worth writing about, please contact me...otherwise you are wasting the few seconds it takes me to delete them, and those few seconds are precious to me.

Long comments that are attacks do not fit in here unless some evidence to back it up with and research. If a person has a beef with someone else making anonymous comments is not the way to be taken seriously. Internet attacks and trolls are not welcome.

FLUXX at the local library

The Smyrna Public Library has some great events for the youth. Here's one for the 12-18 crowd if your kid or kids are into card games.

Smyrna Public Library
400 Enon Springs Road, West, in Smyrna, Tennessee 37167
Phone: 615-459-4884 FAX: 615-459-2370 
Fluxx 4.0 
The card game with ever-changing rules!
The card game with ever changing rules! It starts out simple, with just the Basic Rule card: draw one card and play one card during each player's turn. But New Rule cards quickly make things chaotic.

Even the object of the game will often change as you play, as players swap out one Goal card for another. Can you get the Rocket to the Moon before someone changes the goal to Death by Chocolate?

Help the SPD.

If you can identify this person please contact the Smyrna Police Department.

The Smyrna Police Department needs the communities help in identifying a suspect in a car theft. On December 1, 2012 at 9:20pm a 2003 Chrysler 300 silver in color was stolen from a convenience store in Smyrna. Video shows the suspects enter the parking lot in a late model white Chevy Malibu. A black female wearing a black and green letterman jacket, blue jeans, tennis shoes get into the victims vehicle and drive away. If anyone has any information on this case or the identity of the subject in the picture we are asking them to contact Detective Rick Hall at the Smyrna Police Department at 459-6644.

After the parade party

In the spirit of the holidays State Representative Mike Sparks is hosting a can drive and you are all invited.
Parade after Party with Representative Mike Sparks and friends. I have an after Parade event planned for Dec 2nd at 3pm at Jim N Nicks to hellp the Food Bank., feel free to drop in, just asking people to bring a can good for the Food Bank.
The event is at 3pm and it really is for a good cause. Food banks are hurting with the economy being as bad as it is and donations lagging behind need. Meet a great guy and make a difference in our community...of course you can always bring more than one can of food if the idea strikes you. Hint! Hint!


The town of Smyrna Invites you to their annual Christmas parade this coming Sunday for those who wish to have fun for the whole family.
