    Noel Martin can be found almost every night sitting in the sunroom of his home overlooking the Old Hickory Lake and whittling blocks of wood, with his wife of nearly 35 years by his side.

    "We practically live on the porch," Noel, a Gallatin native in the rental business, says.

    Noel and his wife Patsy have filled their "porch" with pastel colors, giving the sunroom a beach-like atmosphere. Family pictures, a Maltipoo named Honey, Vanderbilt memorabilia and wicker chairs fill the room.

    And ducks.

Local board upholds values of 25,211 Sumner properties

Political parties approach mayor's race in different ways

Municipal races in the City of Gallatin are non-partisan races. Candidates for mayor, the council and other city wide offices run without a 'D' or an 'R' after their names.

But that has not stopped the county Republican Party from promoting their candidate of choice - Paige Brown - in Gallatin's mayoral race.

Shafer big plays set tone against Bison

Capitalizing on missed opportunities and several big plays offensively was the difference in Tuesday night's meeting between Shafer and Station Camp Middle School.

Shafer took what was a close ballgame at half and blew the doors off it in the third quarter to end their season with a 40-6 win over the host Bison. "We are city champs now," Shafer Head Coach Ferrell Zissette said. "We had something to shoot for and our kids came out and played hard for the entire ballgame."

Shafer downs Rams in cross town rivalry

In a game that had already been postponed due to inclement weather, the Shafer Green Wave met cross-town rival Rucker Stewart last Wednesday night in a rain-soaked game played at Gallatin's Calvin Short Field.

Shafers' Ladarius Stewart tallied the game's only points on a 67-yard scamper late in the third quarter to allow his Green Wave to take a 6-0 win.

Gallatin travels to Bear country

Gallatin is arguably playing its best football of the season.

That sentiment will certainly be test Friday night as they travel to Bear country to take on Mt. Juliet.

For the Golden Bears, their success is hinged on the performance of quarterback Nolan Chowbay. Chowbay comes from a long line of athletes at Mt. Juliet and has certainly lived up to the name.

Panthers meet Bison in week 9 contest

Friday night doesn't get any easier for the Portland Panthers, as they travel to the home of the Bison to take on Station Camp.

The Shaun Hollinsworth coached Bison bounced last week in a high scoring affair against Memphis-based Brighton in a 51-35 in over the Cardinals after suffering a loss to Gallatin the week prior. Having prepared for the Green Wave with the game film against Station Camp a week ago, the Panthers are all too aware the capabilities had by the Bison.
