Smyrna annexes 109.5 acres for housing development near Stewarts Creek schools


Smyrna annexes 109.5 acres for housing development near Stewarts Creek schools

The rural area surrounding Stewarts Creek schools will look more like suburbs after the Smyrna Town Council annexed 109.5 acres Tuesday for a housing subdivision.
"That whole area is going to populate that way," said Vice Mayor Marc Adkins, who expects the housing growth near a campus complex serving around 4,100 students to be similar to what has happened around the Blackman schools on the west side of Murfreesboro.

Captain Jeff Kuss USMC Memorial

The Town of Smyrna is saddened by the passing of Volunteer Chaplain Leonard Rader. Our prayers are with his wife, Linda, and the rest of the Rader Family.

The Smyrna Police Department regrets to inform everyone that last night Volunteer Chaplain Leonard Rader passed away after a valiant struggle with cancer. Chaplain Rader had been serving as a Volunteer Chaplain for almost 8 years. In that 8 years Chaplain Rader had been called out numerous times to give the news to someone that a loved one had passed away and Chaplain Rader met the emotional and spiritual needs of many families that were struggling with the loss of a loved one. Chaplain Rader had often volunteered his services to citizens that were in need of a pastor for a wedding or a funeral. And Chaplain Rader counseled many police officers, dispatchers, and other employees as they dealt with their own personal crisis. To Chaplain Rader’s wife Linda and the rest of his family please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers as you deal with your loss. The members of the Smyrna Police Department are very proud to have served alongside a wonderful public servant such as Leonard Rader. We miss you already Chaplain.

Linebaugh Branch Librarian Carol Ghattas says: “It’s a fun way to get to know new people in our community and share a common love of books and reading at the same time. We will have several from our library book and writers groups attending, so it will also be a great time to get connected with these groups as well.”

    This 48 acre park is leased from the United States Corps of Engineers and is best known for the popular splash pad. After obtaining a lease for the property in 2004 the town renovated and developed this park by adding a new shelter, new restrooms, additional parking, lighting and a splash pad. A .45 mile walking trail, additional restrooms and fencing were constructed after the June 2006 grand opening in order to better serve the frequently visited park.

    The shelter, named after the late Bobby Campbell, is a popular place for groups wanting to enjoy this scenic park. Mr. Campbell was instrumental in developing and maintaining many parks and town facilities during his time as a town employee. Gregory Mill Park also connects to the greenway system via sidewalks which run throughout the town.

    A Beach Party

    In Murfreesboro they are having a beach party on May 12th at 5pm and it is just made for kids. So schedule ahead and have fun.



    It's here...well soon anyway.

    I talked last year in November about a movie being shot locally about the All Saints' Episcopal Church. Well guess what will be showing soon in August. All Saints is going to be a great movie.

    About All Saints
    ALL SAINTS is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all. 
    After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with a dozen members. It comes with a catch: he has to close the church doors for good and sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots. 
    But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen (kuh-REN) refugees from Burma—former farmers striving for a fresh start in America—Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Toiling alongside the Karen people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills and feed its newest people. 
    Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do—close the church and sell the property—or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community.

    Here is also a video that has been released about the leaders of the community and their struggles.



    Theaters & Tickets
    ALL SAINTS opens in theaters on August 25 and as we get closer to that date, we will have a full list of theaters, show times, and tickets available. For now, be sure to sign up to get the latest updates about ALL SAINTS.

    Website news

    Well it is pretty much official on my end. Unless disaster strikes, I will be moving to Murfreesboro in Mid-July. At that point, unless I can find someone to take over here, I will be shutting down and turning off the lights as I leave.

    If there is someone that wishes to take up the site, I will repurchase a year for the internet page ThisisSmyrnatn.com (all this page does is redirect to the blogspot site) and transfer the ownership and free hosting over to you, I will assign you admin control of Thisissmyrnatn.blogspot.com and the two facebook pages connected with the site. I will also help you find the resources and such for information to share here.

    It has been fun and I hope I have helped you connect to the many services and events that occur in Smyrna.

    HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES - 11 YEARS LATER
    During the early morning hours of April 23, 2006, 2 year old Analyce Guerra went missing from her family's apartment. Numerous emergency service agencies and community members assisted Smyrna Police in a search for Analyce.

    Smyrna Police and the FBI continue to investigate this case and are still in search of information and leads. If anyone has information that could help us locate the person or persons responsible for Analyce's murder, please contact Detective Nabours at (615) 267-5434 or Detective Anderson at (615) 267-5433.
