Mayor Dindiddie Pushes Crematory at Special Monday Meeting in Spring Hill

The following is a release from a Spring Hill resident who is feeling that Mayor Michael Dinwiddie is running over the citizens while pushing his own reckless agenda with no concern for the well being and quality of life of the local taxpayers.

Here is the release...

Mayor Dinwiddie does it again

Mayor Dinwiddie is attempting to silence the voice of Spring Hill citizens.  That's the opinion of a city official who told me point blank, "It's obvious that the mayor is attempting to use a special called meeting of BOMA to limit citizen involvement and input."  This week the mayor hastily added a vote on crematory zoning to the docket of a BOMA meeting slated for this Monday — a meeting that was specially called for the purpose of dealing with library issues.

This Monday, we need you to send the mayor a message:  The citizens of Spring Hill are watching.  We're active, and we won't be silenced.  We need the mayor and BOMA to know that we're not going to allow hastily called meetings, back room deals, or procedural tricks to determine the future of Spring Hill.

Will you attend the special BOMA meeting this Monday night, 7:00 p.m. in city hall?  This will be the first time we've gathered before our elected officials, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) and they need to know that citizens are not backing down on the issue of a proposed crematory.  More importantly, they need to know that citizens will not tolerate political stunts like the one the mayor is up to.

So, what exactly is the mayor trying to pull?  Mayor Dinwiddie knows full well that BOMA can only hear the crematory issue in September if the crematory is part of a Planned Unit Development (PUD) master plan.  If the proper zoning of that parcel of property is anything but PUD, then the Planning Commission has full and complete jurisdiction and BOMA is cut out.  Although city staff, the chairman of BOZA, and the entire Planning Commission have all said that the zoning is B-4 PUD, the mayor is still trying — desperately — to get the property declared otherwise.  If he's up to the same antics, then he's trying to have the property declared agricultural, its original zoning before development began on the property.  But it's clear from zoning ordinance that the original intention of the city was for this property to transition from AG to B-4 PUD at whatever time commercial development began on the property.  That process started in 1998 with the construction of a funeral home, but the process was not formally completed by the adoption of a master development plan by BOMA.  The Planning Commission has resolved that the process should be completed now by the submission of a master development plan to be approved by BOMA.  But Mayor Dinwiddie wants to do the wrong thing.  He wants to make a mockery of our zoning law by declaring the property agricultural, and allowing the continuance and proliferation of commercial use in the form of a funeral home (and now crematory) on agricultural land — something clearly prohibited by Spring Hill Zoning Ordinance which prohibits commercial use of AG land.

This Monday, in order to say YES to a better Spring Hill, we must say NO.

We must say NO to actions by the mayor or any city official designed to limit citizen input.

We must say NO to actions that would make a mockery of our zoning ordinance.

But in order to say anything, we need you to attend this Monday, 7:00 p.m.  Even if you can come for only a short time this Monday, your presence at City Hall will send a message loud and clear that enough is enough.  This Monday is not about a crematory, but about city officials — our elected officials — being held accountable to doing the right thing.

There Should be Excitement at The Spring Hill (TN) Planning Commission Tonight!

I received a copy of the following email from the Citizens for a Better Spring Hill group. It looks like there should be plenty of hardball politics going down for anyone who is interested...

Corruption, Negligence & Failure: TONIGHT Local Media Covering "Controversial Crematorium"


This morning, Channel 4 and Fox 17 ran teasers for tonight's Spring Hill Planning Commission meeting.  "Large turnout expected in Spring Hill tonight as planning commission votes on controversial crematorium," Channel 4 said.  Will you be there to speak out for a better Spring Hill?  We need your presence, wearing green, as city leaders are confronted with their own corruption, negligence & failure. 

Tonight we'll expose:

Corruption:  Mayor Dinwiddie was caught this week in an illegal meeting with Alderman Graham, violating Tennessee's "Sunshine Law," as they discussed together how to keep the crematory issue from going to BOMA.  We have them on camera, and a citizen witness sitting behind them in a local restaurant even recorded notes about what they said.  We've requested an investigation by the Maury County District Attorney, and tonight we'll confront Mayor Dinwiddie on this issue.

Negligence:  The Board of Zoning Appeals (BOZA) has not fulfilled state-mandated education requirements since 2009, the year Mayor Dinwiddie was elected.  The mayor is responsible for appointing the BOZA, and ensuring that we have properly trained and qualified members serving on that board.  Yet, he's been completely negligent in allowing these members to serve — and make decisions — without proper qualifications.  Tonight, we'll ask Mayor Dinwiddie and the city what been done in the week since we made them aware of this negligence.

Failure:  BOZA denied to hear the crematory issue sent to them by the Planning Commission, yet there is nowhere in city law that gives BOZA the right to refuse a hearing, and in fact several places where it is assumed that BOZA must hear the issues directed to them.  Further, the City didn't follow proper protocol in directing the issue to BOZA.  The City of Spring Hill has once again failed to follow and apply its own stated ordinances, and we're going to call them out.

Please show your support by attending tonight with family, friends & neighbors, 5:30 p.m. at City Hall in Spring Hill.  Bring somebody with you, and stand up for a better Spring Hill.

See You Tonight,

Andrew Zirschky

Beavis and Butthead to Return This Fall

In one of the biggest TV announcements in years (in my book), it was announced today at Comic-Con in San Diego that a new 2011 version of Beavis and Butthead would return in the fall. The guys are the same age but will be in to more current MTV shows, UCF Fights, and other more current topics.

City of Spring Hill Planning Commission Work Session on Crematorium Tonight

Here is the latest Press release from Citizens for a better Spring Hill.

Tonight at The City of Spring Hill Planning Commission work session, more than a dozen concerned Spring Hill residents are planning to speak out on the proposed location of a crematorium in the heart of Spring Hill.

Organized by Citizens for a Better Spring Hill, tonight’s speeches will focus on the health and safety concerns surrounding crematory emissions, which include vaporized mercury and dioxins. Because of the toxicity of these emissions, citizens are calling upon the planning commission to uphold zoning code that restricts toxic
emissions such as these in Central Business Districts. The current proposal from Spring Hill Memorial Park and Funeral Home is to add a crematory to their existing facility at 5239 Main Street, Spring Hill, TN, which is currently zoned as a Central Business District.

The manufacturer of the proposed crematory, Matthews International acknowledges that crematoria emit vaporized mercury—including a study on their own website conducted by the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) that reveals an average emission rate of 0.23 grams of mercury will be released per
cremation (CANA study hosted by Matthews International). According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this seemingly low-level mercury release is still enough exceed the weekly exposure limit
for as many as 16,000 children (EPA Integrated Risk Information System: Mercury). Dioxins are listed by the State of Tennessee as “chemical warfare agents” under the Terrorism Prevention Act of 2002. The EPA states that there is no safe level of exposure to dioxins. Citizens are bewildered that even with these acknowledgments of safety concerns from the crematory industry and a leading manufacturer of crematory equipment, the Planning Commission is seriously considering approving the proposed site plan.

It is expected that Ed Romero an Equipment Consultant from Matthews International will speak on behalf of the owners of Spring Hill Memorial Park and Funeral Home. Tonight’s work session of the City Planning Commission will begin at 5:30 pm at the Spring Hill City Hall.

Interesting Seminar to Solve Every Company's Workplace Problems

I got an email this morning from the Fred Pryor Seminars on how to deal with unacceptable employee behavior. I'm sure it is a great course but I found the description of office trouble makers amusing. I'm sure no one has to deal with any of these folks at their job.

The Excuse Artist — Misses every deadline and goal, but always seems to be ready with a good excuse or to place blame and point fingers at others.
The Short-Changer — Late to work, early to leave, "stretched" lunches, extended breaks ... this person makes an art out of shortening and short-changing the workday, while leaving coworkers "holding the bag"!

The Intimidator — Everyone's tip-toeing around this person, lest they incur wrath and anger! The Intimidator uses fear and bullying tactics to control coworkers and can single-handedly ruin an entire team.

The Gossip — Behind closed doors, over the grapevine, and under the radar, they're waging verbal warfare ... personal attacks, rumors, carping, and criticism are the tools of their trade!

The Clod — This one is ill-mannered, opinionated, and obnoxious. Everyone else is always apologizing and making amends for the rude and thoughtless behavior of The Clod ... behavior that often results in lost business, ruined relationships, and stressful working conditions.

The Downer — No matter what, this person is unhappy ... for this pessimist, the glass is always half-empty. The Downer maintains a consistently negative, stifling presence and constantly spreads the bad news to everyone else.

The Minimalist — Apathetic and low-performing ... these unmotivated workers can be counted on to give the bare minimum (or even less). They make an art out of turning in mediocre performances that are poor enough to frustrate managers ... but passable enough to keep them employed!

The Soap Star — Their continuing "soap opera" of problems not only hurts their own productivity, but distracts sympathetic coworkers who get drawn into their never-ending predicaments and problems.

The Itch — They need constant attention, reassurance, and feedback ... and take so much energy and time to manage, you often find yourself sacrificing your job responsibilities to help them meet theirs!

The Smarty-Pants — Challenges your management authority openly and forcefully, constantly questions management decisions, and creates a harmful undercurrent of "anti-management" chatter.

News Release: Citizens Rally Against Spring Hill Crematorium

The City of Spring Hill is currently considering a proposal from Spring Hill Memorial Park and Funeral Home to add a crematory to their existing facility at 5239 Main Street, Spring Hill, TN. Citizens for a Better Spring Hill believes that the proposed location for the crematory is incompatible with current land usage and zoning laws due to the release of toxins during the cremation process.

The toxins of particular concern include mercury and dioxins. Matthews International, the equipment manufacturer for the proposed crematory acknowledges on their own website that a study conducted by the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) reveals that on average 0.23 grams of mercury will be released per cremation (CANA study hosted by Matthews International) .

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this seemingly low-level mercury release is still enough exceed the weekly exposure limit for as many as 16,000 children (EPA Integrated Risk Information System: Mercury). Dioxins will also be released during the cremation process. Dioxins are listed by the State of  Tennessee as “chemical warfare agents” under the Terrorism Prevention Act of
2002. The EPA states that there is no safe level of exposure to dioxins.

Citizens for a Better Spring Hill is circulating petitions calling on our city officials to protect the health and safety of Spring Hill residents by placing the crematory in a properly zoned location away from the heart of the community. Additionally, concerned citizens are being encouraged to contact city officials including planning commissioners and their elected Alderman. Citizens may also make their concerns known at the upcoming voting session of the City Planning Commission on Monday, July 11, 2011 at 5:30 pm at the Spring Hill City Hall.

Citizens for a Better Spring Hill is a grassroots organization working for the the health, safety, and further development of the residents and businesses of Spring Hill, Tennessee.

Attention Bloggers and Social Media Users: New Tennessee Law Could Expose You To Criminal Prosecution

Sometimes great intentions can produce drastically different results. During the just completed legislative session, the Tennessee General Assembly passed a law designated as Public Chapter 362 with the intent of curtailing "cyberbullying" on the Internet, especially on social media sites.

In the process the Tennessee Code Annotated 39-17-308 which covers "Harassment" was butchered to basically leave anyone with an Internet or social media presence potentially exposed to criminal prosecution if they unintentionally cause "emotional distress" to anyone.

The Tennessee Chapter of the ACLU has announced a challenge to the law which takes effect on Friday, July 1, 2011 because they claim that it "violates the guarantee of freedom of speech and expression under the First Amendment."

The authors of the legislation indicate that they feel that the law contains safeguards that would not allow it tho be used  except for the intended use.

However, with no definition of "emotional distress," a suit could be filed based on just about anything. Whether it is warranted or not, a person would incur extensive legal costs in clearing their name.

I would suggest that anyone with a blog or social media account to read each of the above linked documents carefully and if you are so inclined, go here and advise the ACLU of your concerns to help bolster their case.

City Of Spring Hill Wants to Put Crematorium in a Residential Area

First the City of Spring Hill and their notorious Mayor Michael Dinwiddie thought that it was a great idea to buy the story of a con-artist who was going to put a huge them park in town to help clear up Tennessee's meth problem among about a hundred other things that weren't going to happen.

Now the mayor and his cronies want to put a crematorium in a mostly residential area of the booming young city. The final vote of the planning commission is this Monday, June 13 and due to the lack of publicity, concerned citizens have had little time to raise opposition.

I was contacted by Spring Hill resident Lori Fisk-Conners, who is trying to get the word to as many folks as possible to call the Planning Commission or show up at the meeting to try to slow down the process so the public can weigh in on what is at hand.

Here is the email from Lori that details some of the basic issues...

The City of Spring Hill Planning Commission will be holding it FINAL Approval Meeting for the Building of a Crematorium to be located at 5239 Main Street in Spring Hill, TN. This location is on Highway 31 at the Maury County/Williamson County line in the Heart of Residential Spring Hill.

There are 6 Elementary Schools located with 5 miles of the proposed Crematorium Site.

The closest school being: Spring Hill Elementary, 5359 Main Street, Spring Hill, TN 37174 .33 miles from the site

Longview Elementary School 2929 Commonwealth Drive, Spring Hill, TN 1.14 miles from the site

Columbia Academy at Spring Hill 756 Beechcroft Road, Spring Hill, TN 37174 2.28 miles from the site

Heritage Elementary School 4801 Columbia Pike, Thompson's Station, TN 37175 2.66 miles from the site

Chapman's Retreat 1000 Secluded Lane, Spring Hill, TN 37174 3.24 miles from the site

Marvin Wright Elementary School 4714 Derryberry Lane, Spring Hill, TN 37174 4.57 miles from the site

Please let the public know about the Final Planning Committee Meeting on this matter. It's on Monday, June 13th at 5:30pm at Spring Hill City Hall. We need to let the public know as the city was not required to publish a Legal Notice on the Building of a Crematorium to be located within the City of Spring Hill.

We have petitions circulation around Spring Hill, if you haven't signed one yet please e-mail me & I'll forward you a copy. Tell all of your friends & neighbors who live in Spring Hill. This is an issue for the entire City of Spring Hill's residents (not just those who live nearest the site). As you can see all of the Elementary Schools in Spring Hill & Thompson's Station are within 5 Miles of the Site.

In addition to them not having to publish information on this (they said because it wasn't a zoning change) they seem to be going full force ahead with this matter. The only way we found out about it was a few of my neighbors went to the Planning Commission meeting this past monday to hear about & oppose the Super Walmart site.

It was only when the left the meeting on Monday, June 6th & called me that I found out & started doing research. I'll be happy to provide you with the sources that I've found via my research. There is no EPA control of Crematoriums in the US. They are regulated in Europe.Each state seems to have their own rules. This needs to be changed, at least in TN.

San Francisco to Paris in Two Minutes and Northern Lights

Photographer Nate Bolt captured this video of his flight from San Francisco to Paris that included stunning photgraphy of the northern lights.

About the video, Bolt said...

I shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse. More of these wacky time lapses at Shot with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm - 35mm, mixed with some iPhone shots.

The music is a modified template of "Gain" used with permission from DETUNE ltd. denkitribe - I created this arrangement on the Korg iMS20 iPad App. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.

The photos during take-off and landing are all computer models and totally rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times when the FAA prohibits them. I did get lucky and have a whole row to myself to setup the tripod and gear.

Thanks to my neighbors for not minding an SLR click every 2 to 30 seconds for 11 hours, and thanks to the whole Air France flight crew for being insanely friendly and allowing me to shoot. Thanks to @ztaylor for showing me the Korg iMS20 iPad App. Thanks to @jayzombie and the #nerdbird on the way to SXSW this year for helping me come up with the idea. Thanks to @somnabulent for the idea of live scoring. Thanks to you for actually reading this far. You are a champion.

Random Quotes from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson

When the Going Gets Weird, the Weird Turn Pro

"We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive..." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: "Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?"

But our trip was different. It was a classic affirmation of everything right and true and decent in the national character. It was a gross, physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country-but only for those with true grit. And we were chock full of that.

"Order some golf shoes," I whispered. "Otherwise, we'll never got out of this place alive..."

This is the main advantage of ether: it makes you behave like the village drunkard in some early Irish loss of all basic motor skills: Blurred vision, no balance, numb tongue-severance of all connection between the body and the brain. Which is interesting, because the brain continues to function more or less can actually watch yourself behaving in the terrible way, but you can't control it.

The Circus-Circus is what the whole hep world would be doing Saturday night if the Nazis had won the war. This is the sixth Reich. The ground floor is full of gambling tables, like all the other casinos . . . but the place is about four stories high, in the style of a circus tent, and all manner of strange County-Fair/Polish Carnival madness is going on up in this space.

This is not a good town for psychedelic drugs. Reality itself is too twisted.

What were we doing out here? What was the meaning of this trip? Did I actually have a big red convertible out there on the street? was I just roaming around these Mint Hotel escalators in a drug frenzy of some kind, or had I really come out here to Las Vegas to work on a story?

Not for me. No mercy for a criminal freak in Las Vegas. This place is like the army: the shark ethic prevails-eat the wounded. In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.

Reading the front page made me feel a lot better. Against that heinous background, my crimes were pale and meaningless. I was a relatively respectable citizen — a multiple felon, perhaps, but certainly not dangerous. And when the Great Scorer came to write against my name, that would surely make a difference.

Or would it? I turned to the sports page and saw a small item about Muhammad Ali; his case was before the Supreme Court, the final appeal. He'd been sentenced to five years in prison for refusing to kill "slopes." "I ain't got nothin' against them Viet Congs," he said. Five years.
Suddenly I felt guilty again.

KNOW YOUR DOPE FIEND. YOUR LIFE MAY DEPEND ON IT! You will not be able to see his eyes because of Tea-Shades, But his knuckles will be white from inner tension and his pants will be crusted with semen from constantly jacking off when he can't find a rape victim. He will stagger and babble when questioned. He will not respect your badge. The Dope Fiend fears nothing. He will attack, for no reason, with every weapon at his command-including yours. BEWARE. Any officer apprehending a suspected marijuana addict should use all necessary force immediately. One stitch in time (on him) will usually save nine on you. Good luck. - The Chief

"Snakes in the Grass" Instrumental Version

Last summer, when Fisher and Jackson and I were in Hollywood, a street hustler sold Fisher a "ghetto" rap CD for 50 cents. It turned out to be a bootleg copy of Ray J's Unkut underground album. All the tracks are available on the internet for free here.

It is a vile album as you would expect from the guy who made sex tapes with Kim Kardashian but I really did like the mix tape that was used for the background beats for the Snakes in the Grass Cut. It kind of puts you in the mood to go pimpin' in the streets, smokin' some Swisher Sweets, or even smokin', smokin', trees. Check it out.

Welcome to Odds and Ends...

For three years we have produced PredsOnTheGlass with extensive coverage of the Nashville Predators and the NHL.

As part of our coverage, we have produced a daily links column. One of the sub headings of the column has been an Odds and Ends... section where anything non-hockey related goes.

This blog is an outgrowth of that and will have random posting of things that interest us and hopefully will interest you.

The Free Dictionary Thesaurus defines Odds and Ends as "a motley assortment of things" - farrago, gallimaufry, hodgepodge, hotchpotch, melange, mingle-mangle, mishmash, oddments, omnium-gatherum, ragbag assortment, miscellanea, miscellany, mixed bag, motley, potpourri, salmagundi, smorgasbord, variety, mixture - a collection containing a variety of sorts of things; "a great assortment of cars was on display"; "he had a variety of disorders"; "a veritable smorgasbord of religions"

I had to look up a couple of those word but they all seem perfectly descriptive of what you will find here. Expect postings on space, surfing, techie stuff, and anything else that strikes our fancy. As always, comments and feedback are welcomed and encouraged.
