Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Lawrenceburg Fire Department this morning. Firefighter Jason Dickey made the ultimate sacrafice battling an early morning house fire. Two other firefighters were injured as well. Like siblings often do, we may tease and poke at each other, but when one of our family members suffer, we all share in the pain. Thank you for your service and may God bring all affected peace and comfort.

Update from the Wilson County Sheriffs Office.

To follow up from this morning’s school closures. A bomb threat was made via email to the Lebanon Special School District’s webpage. The email was received in the Winfrey Bryant Middle School inbox. Due to the routing system of these emails, the district could not confirm that the threat was targeted only at this middle school. For the safety of all students, the decision was made to close all district schools. Our Explosives Detection Canines assisted the Wilson County Sheriffs Office in searching and clearing the middle school. No devices or threats were found. Our department, along with the Sheriff’s Office, will continue to investigate the origins of the threat.

The Lebanon Special School District has announced that all district schools will be closed today due to a threat being made. Units are in route to assess and investigate that threat.
