Headlines from the Mt. Juliet News, The Chronicle, and the Wilson Post

from the Mt. Juliet News, Wednesday, 12/17/07

BOE, ACLU trial ends; judge could rule in January
[the plaintiff’s attorney called former Lakeview principal Wendell Marlowe (he’s now the principal of West Wilson Middle School in Mt. Juliet) as a witness; then the defendant’s attorney called him back to the stand as a defense witness. Plaintiffs were disturbed by “a lot of little things,” like the posting of the Ten Commandments and the distribution of Bibles by the Gideons. Horrors!]

Purchase of LHS land depletes funds to convert two MJ schools
Board will go to county for money

[When the new MJHS opens next summer, the old MJHS is supposed to be converted to become the new home of Mt. Juliet Middle School. The current Mt. Juliet Middle School will then be converted to become a new (as yet un-named) elementary school.

So the conversion of the two schools next summer looks to be in some doubt.]

from the Chronicle:

County squires agree to sell old MJES property
inside headline: City must pay for Curd Road if commission agrees to county’s deal

Juliet for $1,050,000 in cash and the city’s agreement to relieve the county of its offer to contribute $950,000 to the improvement of the road to the new Mt. Juliet High School. Anyone wish to predict whether the city will actually get the road to the new high school built?]
