101.5 The One FM Recently re-elected Circuit Court Judge Larry Wallace will remain on the bench in the 23rd Judicial District after Gov. Bill Haslam chose a different nominee to fill a vacancy on the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals. Over the last two days, Haslam announced his choices for a pair of vacancies in Middle Tennessee. On Wednesday, Haslam announced Judge Timothy Lee Easter of Brentwood will replace Judge Jerry L. Smith, who is retiring Aug. 31. On Thursday, the governor announced his selection of Judge Robert Lee Holloway Jr. of Columbia to replace Judge Jeff Bivins, who was appointed to the Tennessee Supreme Court. A Stewart County resident, Wallace was on the Governor's Commission on Judicial Appointment's short list for the vacancy left by Bivins. Wallace was first elected to the bench for the 23rd Judicial District, which includes Dickson, Cheatham, Humphreys, Stewart and Houston counties, in 2006 and earlier this month ran unopposed for a second eight-year term. With judges Robert Burch and George Sexton retiring, Wallace is the only incumbent judge returning to the bench in the 23rd Judicial District. Easter, whose name was submitted for both vacancies, has been on the bench since 1998 in the 21st Judicial District, which includes Williamson, Hickman, Lewis and Perry counties. Holloway has been on the bench since 1998 in the 22nd Judicial District, which includes Maury, Giles, Lawrence and Wayne counties. Both Holloway and Easter were re-elected without opposition in their respective judicial districts earlier this month and the commission will now begin the process of taking applications for their replacements. Wallace will begin his second term as Circuit Court judge in the 23rd Judicial District Sept. 1. He will be joined in the circuit by David Wolfe of Dickson and Suzanne Lockert-Mash of Dover.22.08.2014 at 10:51 amLike
101.5 The One FM There will be no candidate for mayor and only the five incumbent aldermen on the Nov. 4 ballot in Vanleer. Nobody turned in a petition to seek the two-year term as mayor by yesterday's deadline. At Thursday night's meeting, the Dickson County Election Commission approved the qualifying petitions of Wes Albright, Raymond Fletcher, Dwight McIllwain, Ruben Schmittou and Jason P. Weaver to be on the ballot for the five positions on the Vanleer Board of Aldermen. Albright, McIllwain, Schmittou and Weaver were elected in 2012 and Fletcher was appointed in 2013 to finish the term of Donald “Bubba” Tinsley, who resigned after being replaced as chief of the Vanleer Volunteer Fire Department. While there will be no candidate for mayor listed on the ballot, qualified residents can still file to run as a write-in candidate. Sept. 15 is the deadline to register as a write-in candidate for any office on the Nov. 4 ballot. If nobody registers as a write-in candidate, then the board of aldermen will elect one of its members to be vice mayor at the Dec. 22 meeting and that person with then serve the two-year term as mayor while the board will elect someone else to complete the term as alderman. Vanleer Mayor Larry Robertson did not seek re-election because he is moving outside the town limits. Two years ago, there were 11 candidates for the five seats on the board. Alderman Albright is currently scheduled to face trial Dec. 15 on charges he solicited sex from an undercover officer posing online as a teenager. If Albright is convicted of a felony, he must either resign from the board or the district attorney's office can bring an ouster suit to have him thrown out. For information on registering to run as a write-in candidate, contact the Dickson County Election Office at (615) 789-6021. The deadline for voter registration is Oct. at 08:25 amLike
101.5 The One FM Of the nine petitions that were picked up to run for the four seats on the Burns Board of Commissioners, only five were turned in prior to Thursday's deadline and one of them will be allowed on the Nov. 4 ballot despite filling out his qualifying paperwork incorrectly. Burns Mayor Landon Mathis faces opposition from Dean Spurlock in his bid for re-election. The Dickson County Election Commission voted Thursday night to approve the qualifying petitions of Ed “Shot” Grove, Steven Hayes, Chris Holland, Jerry Perella and Tase Sturgill to be candidates for the Burns Board of Commissioners. Grove, Hayes and Holland are currently serving on the board. Incumbent Bill Allen picked up a petition to seek a second two-year term but did not turn it in prior to Thursday's deadline. Petitions also were picked up but not turned in by Ricky Carpenter, former Commissioner Lewis Orcutt and Sammy Spann, who picked up his petition Thursday morning. During its review process, the election commission discovered that Perella signed his qualifying petition in the wrong place. Perella signed the line for judicial candidates to attest that they are attorneys licensed to practice in the state of Tennessee, which is just below the designated space for the candidate's signature. After voting to approve the petitions of Mathis, Spurlock, Grove, Hayes, Holland and Sturgill as a group, the commission debated Perella's petition separately. “He did sign it, he just didn't sign it in the correct place. There's no question that he intended to sign it,” Chairman Jack Garton said. The commission discussed a Davidson County chancellor's ruling on a lawsuit brought by general sessions judge candidate Blake Kruse when state Election Coordinator Mark Goins said he would not allow Kruse on the ballot because he failed to sign the petition line specifically for judicial candidates. Garton pointed out that the chancellor said in her ruling that it is the candidate's responsibility to make sure his paperwork is filled out correctly but allowed Kruse on the ballot because he had faxed a correct signature prior to the deadline and had been told by election officials that would be acceptable. Garton warned that turning in a petition at the last minute means there is less time to catch and correct mistakes in the paperwork. Perella turned in his petition Wednesday afternoon. With Commissioner Melba Isom abstaining from the vote because she is “familiar” with Perella, the commission voted 4-0 to allow Perella to be on the Nov. 4 ballot, although Garton cautioned that Goins could refuse to approve the ballot based on the incorrectly completed qualifying petition. Currently finishing his first term in office, Burns native Mathis is a contractor and is active in local softball leagues. A West Virginia native, Spurlock is a lighting designer and director for live events who works mainly with Brad Paisley.22.08.2014 at 08:25 amLike
101.5 The One FM The seven candidates who previously filed petitions to seek the three seats on the White Bluff Town Council have been approved to be on the Nov. 4 ballot. At its meeting Thursday, the Dickson County Election Commission formally approved the qualifying petitions of Roberta “Sissy” Allen, Brandon Gossett, Martha Beth Harding, James Oscar Martin and Ellen Campbell Marsh. The petitions of Connie Reed and Sheila Street were approved at the July meeting. The seven candidates will be listed on the ballot for the three four-year terms on the five-member council. The two remaining council positions currently held by Stephanie Murrell and Dan Clark and the mayor's seat are not on the ballot until 2016. Vice Mayor Todd Hamilton did not file to seek re-election to the council. Martin and Harding currently hold the other two seats. Martin was re-elected in 2009 and ended up serving an extended term after the council changed the town's election cycle to coincide with the state and federal elections in order to reduce costs. After running as a write-in candidate in 2012, Harding was appointed in 2013 to complete the term of Lil Cauthen following her resignation. Reed previously served on the council and Marsh was on the ballot in 2012. Anyone wanting to run as a write-in candidate must register by noon Sept. 15. Voter registration ends Oct. 6. The winners of the Nov. 4 election will take office at the Dec. 2 council meeting.22.08.2014 at 08:25 amLike

    Jake Owen Says "Patience Happened"

    I've seen Jake Owen open concerts for just about everyone in country music. And now, as he explained on Larry King Now, Owen is the one whose name is on the ticket.
  • With the promise of cooler weather approaching, America's thoughts are turning to football. And the new film, When the Game Stands Tall, vividly captures the essence of what it means to compete.
  • Late afternoon storm clouds were rolling across Nashville and rain had begun to pepper the streets of Music Row as a crowd packed the reception hall at the BMI building to toast Brett Eldredge's second No. 1 single, "Beat of the Music."
  • Dierks Bentley, Kelly Clarkson and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott are among the newly-announced performers who will take part in the eighth annual ACM Honors ceremony taking place Sept. 9 in Nashville.
  • I love a good story-based music video -- one with a plot, a little dialogue. It's like a little mini-movie, and Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett's video for "Small Town Throwdown" is a hilarious and shining new example of such.
  • Coy Gomez, who gained national attention as a cast member of CMT's Swamp Pawn reality series, died Monday (Aug. 18) following a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 68.
