Two similar, yet quite different, sets of plans are on the table now that could bring significant changes to Lebanon and Wilson County residents’ lives in the future, and it’s important they be studied carefully.
Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead has been both praised and criticized in this space in the past for some of the decisions he’s made for the city. The one he made Thursday was correct if for no other reason than simple fairness.
Much to the disappointment of children across Wilson County who have to wait a day to get those treats, the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce and city leaders were correct to postpone Halloween on the Square until Friday.
Halloween is a time when starry-eyed children transform into superheroes, princesses, ghosts, goblins and the like for one night all for the quest to fill bags and plastic Jack-O-Lanterns full of candy.
Students at Lebanon High School, Mt. Juliet High School and Wilson Central High School started last Friday encouraging their communities to back them with a simple request that now appears could lead to a significant pay day.
