By Gloria Ruth Finney Contributor to The News After hiatus, motorized scooters are back in Nash- ville, transporting riders to and from conveniently at low fare. The laws and regula- tions for the use of the seem- ingly juvenile means of short distance transportation, pop- ularized in cities across the country, are accompanied by a list of laws and regulations in which operators must abide. Following the first arrival of shared urban mobility devices (SUMDs), to Nash- ville back in June, the scoot- ers were decidedly banned from the area. Without laws and regulations set forth to guide their use, Metro deter- mined the SUMDs to be poten- tial hazards for motorists, pedestrians, and scooter operators.

Shortly after the Metro- politan Government of Nash- ville and Davidson County approved a pilot program to allow for the return of SUMDs scooters from compa- nies like Bird and Lime can be spotted all over the Nash- ville area. A new ordinance has been set forth to regulate operators of SUMDs, such as bicycles and scooters, and to establish a permitting system. To rent a scooter the user must first download an app to their mobile device, by searching the scooter compa- ny of the SUMD they wish to use. Common companies owning scooters in Nashville include Bird, and Lime. Operators must be at least 18 years of age, with a valid drivers license.

Available scooters can be located by viewing the map provided by the app. Scooters cost $1 to unlock and about 15 cents to ride per minute.

If you’ve made your way downtown recently, you’ve most likely noticed someone zipping along via scooter, on one of the many that have made their return to Music City, but the rules set forth by the scooter companies sometimes vary with the reg- ulations put in place by Nashville. Individual companies have their own policies and agree- ments, but require operators to abide by state and local laws. “Helmets are encouraged but not required in the Metro ordinance,” says Jeremy Elrod, Metro Councilman for District 26. “State law doesn’t even require helmets for bike riders over 16 years old”. All permitted operators shall comply with any restric- tions developed by the Metro- politan Government regard- GREEN HILLS VOLUME 30 NUMBER 37 NEWS PRESORTED STANDARD U.S.

Two women were elected as Criminal Court judges; another female was elected as Public Defender; the fourth is now Register of Deeds for the city , while the fifth became the new Davidson County Chan- cellor.

The Juvenile Court Clerk was a Metro Councilman. The newly-elected officials include: Davidson County Criminal Court Division II Judge Angelita Dalton, who is already the first African- American woman elected to serve as a General Sessions Judge in Davidson County, and is now also the first African-American woman to sit on the Davidson County Criminal Court.

General Sessions Division III Judge Ana Escobar, who has 22 years of experience in defending and prosecuting domestic violence cases, is the city's first Latina judge. Karen Johnson, a former Metro Council Member, is both the first woman and the first African American to hold the position of Register of Deeds for the city . Martesha Johnson, who previously served as assistant public defender for nine years, is Nashville's first African- American Public Defender. Anne Martin, who has a 25-year legal career handling the complex cases tried in Chancery Court, is the new Davidson County Chancellor.

Lonnell Matthews, previ- ously director of the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods and member of the Metro Council, is the city's first African- American Juvenile Court Clerk.

"Each of these leaders has fought to make Nashville the inclusive, supportive commu- nity we know it to be and I look forward to working with them for years to come," said Mayor David Briley , who con- gratulated them. He said that these new appointments mark historic and diverse mile- stones for the City .

To ensure the city's readiness in the event of a large-scale dis- aster, more than 80 personnel from multiple agencies took part in a four-hour simulated training exercise at the Nash- ville Emergency Operations Center. The drill, which also included representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of En- gineers, the National Weather Service, Hands On Nashville and the United Way of Metro- politan Nashville, was designed to train personnel as well as test and tax the city's emergency response processes.

"A quick and clear response is critical when dealing with an emergency, and this drill put our personnel through a set of extraordinary challenges. We hope a city-wide emergency doesn't occur, but should disas- ter strike Davidson County , we are prepared," said Mayor David Briley . The simulated exercise, which was funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), was hosted through a coordinated effort between the Mayor's Office, the Nashville Office of Emergency Manage- ment (OEM) and USACE. Input and planning for the exercise were also provided by Metro Water Services, Metro Planning, the Emergency Communica- tions Center and the National Weather Service.

The simulation included a rapid series of weather events with catastrophic impact on various buildings, roads and services across the county . "Our Metro employees and partners did an excellent job in this drill. No matter how much training we provide our staff and partners, there is nothing short of real-time events that can match a multi-agency , real- time exercise," said Heidi Mariscal with the OEM. The Nashville-Davidson County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is the city's cen- tral coordinating, monitoring, notification and warning point for major emergencies and dis- asters. It is the primary multi- agency coordination center dur- ing a major incident.

The EOC coordinates with the Incident Command out in the field and other outside sources and resources. The EOC activates on average six times a year, with full activations seldom happen- ing.

"We have a strong partner- ship with our fellow Metro Nashville departments and community partners," Nash- ville Fire Department and OEM Director Chief William Swann said. "We value these exercises so much because they allow us to put our procedures to the test outside of an actual incident requiring a massive response." Briley implements multi-agency emergency preparedness drill Registration is now open for the Metropolitan Police Department’s free Driver Aware- ness Class for high school aged teens, scheduled for Saturday, September 22 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. This popular course will be held in the community room of the MNPD’s South Precinct, 5101 Harding Place.

It is open to all high school aged teens, regardless of county of resi- dency .

The class, taught by Nash- ville police officers, will not offer behind the wheel training, but rather will focus on impaired driving, distracted driving and overall traffic safe- ty .

It’s a time of crisp air, lively colors and warm atmospheres, making it the perfect opportunity to refresh your home. The transi- tion from summer to fall is not only a time to get your home ready for the coming cold weather, but also an opportuni- ty to refresh your home’s atmosphere. Read on for a few essentials to keep in mind while transitioning your home for fall.

Freshness. Though the tem- perature may be dropping, that doesn’t mean it’s time to give up on your garden. Use this change in season as an opportu- nity to give your garden some new life. By choosing a few of the many beautiful fall flowers, your garden can last well into the cooler months. For a pop of color, try adding chrysanthe- mums, pansies, or zinnias to your garden or on your porch. Another great way to bring fall freshness to your home is to check out the many colorful fruits and vegetables available in the fall. Fill your kitchen with the colors and tastes of sweet potatoes, squash, pump- kins, and apples.

Color. After months of bright summery colors, the warm, rich tones of fall can be a comforting change in the liv- ing spaces of your home. From accent pillows on your sofa to a new table setting in your dining space, there are so many easy ways to add the rich tones of fall to your home. To create a perfect seasonal tablescape, include elements like candles that add warmth to your dining space, but don’t be afraid to break away from the usual fall color schemes of orange and brown. This year, try a deep teal or al warm ivory for a more neutral setting. A few well- placed accents of warm fall col- ors can add so much to the com- fort and coziness of your fall home.

Warmth. A key element in transitioning your home to fall involves getting ready for the colder weather of the coming months. This can include switching out bedlinens for warmer materials, layering fur- niture with warm blankets and other textiles, and even lighting candles for a cozy fall-ready atmosphere. Consider giving a little love to your coffee station – you and your guests will appreciate a warming cup of coffee on a chilly fall morning. Fun. Even as the weather gets cooler, entertaining out- doors is still a favorite activity in the South. Make sure your outdoor living space is ready for any gathering, regardless of the temperature outside.

One way to do this is to keep a store of cashmere blankets on hand for guests as the nights get cold- er. Another great option is to consider upgrading your out- door living area. With football season gearing up, consider cre- ating an ultimate tailgate spot by adding an entertainment system to your outdoor living area. An outdoor fireplace is also a great addition for keep- ing parties warm and cozy, and they are a beautiful addition to any patio or deck that you will enjoy for the season while also adding to your home’s resale value.

Transitioning your home to fall can be fun and refreshing. As you get ready for the cooler temperatures, there are so many ways to add warmth as well as seasonality to your home’s atmosphere.

SUMDs should not be parked on sidewalks, in front of driveways, or in front of bench- es, parking pay stations, bus shelters, and transit informa- tion signs. “Scooters must not be operated on sidewalks within business areas, or business districts, as the ordinance says officially,” said Elrod.

“The ordinance uses a state law definition that is kind of tech- nical, but I try to tell people a business area or business dis- trict means what you would think it means”. Whenever operating a SUMD upon a sidewalk, the user shall yield to any pedestrian and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing such pedestrian. When riding on a street, users must follow the rules of the road as one would in a motor vehicle. Improperly parking or oper- ating a scooter has a $25 fine, and enforcement can be done by Metro Transportation Licensing Commission staff (the official entity of the pilot program), and Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD).

It should also be known that only one person per SUMD is allowed.

MNPD urged clarification that the $25 fine in the ordi- nance does not take place of other Metro or State laws. Common motor vehicle laws still apply, including the possi- bility of receiving a DUI, as it is covered by state law. “George Jones got a DUI on a lawnmower,” reminded Elrod. “You could get a DUI because it’s a motorized vehi- cle, or at least a public intoxica- tion, or reckless endanger- ment.” Individual company policies and agreements can be found through the app, or the compa- ny’s website.

Scooters are available to ride approximately 5 a.m. to dusk. Around dark, the scooters are picked up by designated chargers and taken to their des- ignated “nests” to be charged, inspected, and then returned the following morning.

From Page One Scooters... A 17-year-old Pearl Cohn High School student was arrested last week for carrying a stolen semi-automatic pistol to school that the teen claimed he found on a West Nashville street. The student told officer he carried the gun for protec- tion. Resource officers reported that the semi-automatic con- tained 20 rounds and that the teen had the weapon in his waistband.

Officers Freddirico Pye and Julius Gallon had received information about a social media post concerning a stu- dent potentially armed with a gun. The officers located the 17-year-old on the second floor of the school and conducted a probable cause search. Recovered from the student’s waistband was a 9 millimeter semi-automatic pistol with one live round in the chamber and 19 live rounds in the maga- zine. A check of the pistol’s serial number showed that it was stolen more than 8 years ago, on August 17, 2010, during a car burglary at Polo Park Apart- ments on Jackson Downs Boulevard in Hermitage.

The 51-year-old (at the time) owner reported the gun, a radio and a flashlight were taken from the vehicle. The car was not dam- aged to gain entry . The owner could not remember whether he locked it.

The Jeopardy- style trivia consists of three rounds of competi- tion, at the district level, regional level, and finally statewide. The event brings awareness to the importance of brain health as individuals age. Ms. Sr. Tennessee Debbie Mathis Watts, and Miss Tennessee Christine Williams both participat- ed in the Greater Nash- ville District event to sup- port the competitors, and highlight the need to increase awareness of aging-related issues such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Future use of Richard Jones Road Fire Hall property to be discussed at community meeting Metro Councilman Russ Pulley is hosting a community meeting on the fire hall property , located on Richard Jones Road, to discuss options for the use of this property . The Fire Station operated for decades at this location until the new station was built at the intersection of Harding and Hillsboro Road. Currently , the Richard Jones Road property is leased; howev- er that lease, according to Pulley , will end by year’s end.

“You have heard me state that as a general rule, I am not in favor of selling public property , especially to make short-term budget goals,” Pulley said. “The mayor’s office included the Fire Hall property in this year’s budget, which means we must address that.” The community meeting will be held at the Granny White Church of Christ, located on Granny White Pike just north of Lipscomb University campus, on Thursday, September 20 beginning at 6 p.m. Representatives from the mayor’s office and planning department will be present to discuss the options being consid- ered for this property .

100 at the 70-100 split 615-353-5666 BRING THIS AD IN FOR THESE SPECIALS “The Duel” by Eugene Field has come to be known as the “Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat.” The subject of the poem is the unnecessary struggle of two inanimate objects resulting in the annihilation of both. “The gingham dog and the calico cat Side by side on the table sat; ‘T’was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!?) Nor one nor t’other had slept a wink! The air was littered, an hour or so, with bits of gingham and cal- ico… Next morning, where the two had sat they found no trace of dog or cat; and some folks think unto this day that bur- glars stole that pair away! But the truth about the cat and pup is this: they ate each other up! Now what do you really think of that!?” (Paraphrased) Galatians 5:15 says, “If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.” (NIV) What is the message of Mr.

Field’s poem and the Biblical quote?

Our world is fraught with conflict and hate. Why? Some call it survival of the fittest. I call it rampant ungodliness. There has always been a conflict between the “have’s and the have nots.” The “rich and famous” and the “poor” contin- ue to strive against each other; and, it seems to be an eternal struggle. The root problem seems to be pride and envy . But what could be the reason for the “white vs. black” conflict? We have no control over the pig- ment of our skin. Our heritage is not a matter of choice. The treatment of those who are dif- ferent, for whatever reason, is just not necessary or condoned by true followers of Christ.

Hate and strife must end or we will destroy ourselves. The past is the past. We can not change it. Tearing down the monuments, removing statues and whitewashing the murals do not change the shame and degradation that preceded our generation. But, it does not give any of us the right to perpetuate the malfeasance that preceded our generation. That must stop, here and now!

I was born in a time when the variances in race were magni- fied; however, my mother and father would not allow that philosophy in our house. Segregation kept the races apart and was not supported by rea- son. When I rode the bus with my father, who was the driver of the bus for Nashville Transit, all blacks were relegated to the back of the bus. I asked dad why they were not allowed to sit else- where. He said it was the law. What?! How un-Christian and inhumane is that? I am ashamed of our past deeds, but I can not provide restitution for the acts of others. Dear God, please for- give our senseless opposition to other humans of any color! Look at the souls, personality and humanity of people.

Stop the madness!

God made all of us. And He has given us guidance in His Word. He says “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Romans 12:18 Okay , let’s cut to the chase. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated. Think what would happen if we could all live in harmony . How much could be accomplished? I am sure; it would amaze all of us. I have a very good friend I call my brother. He is black. His blood type is O positive. My blood type is O positive. There is no difference in our blood. Color is only skin deep. The soul and the psyche of each of us is all encompassing and eternal.

Does this tell you anything? There is no reason for our socie- ty to prolong inhumanity . It does not have to be that way . Let’s change the world; together we can. Jonathan Edwards said, “It has been found by experience that the tidings of remarkable effects of the power and grace of God in any place tend greatly to awaken and engage the minds of persons in other places.” Stories of revival often spark other revivals. Let’s start a revival here and spread it around the world. Are you in? If not, why not?
