|Final vintage baseball game at Sam Davis Home July 27|
The final game at the Sam Davis Home for the Tennessee Association of Vintage Base Ball is a double header beginning at noon on July 27 at the Sam Davis Home.
The first game is between the Nashville Maroons and the Phoenix of East Nashville, and the second game is between the home team Stewart’s Creek Scouts and the Franklin Farriers. As always, the games are free of charge.
Vintage base ball is the 19th century version of the pastime that America has come to know as baseball. The players will closely follow the rules and customs set in 1864 in Beadle’s Dime Base-Ball Player. FULL STORY
Re-enacting base ball as it was in the 19th century means no gloves or mitts, a single ball that is used throughout the entire game, and absolutely no sliding, because that wouldn’t be gentlemanly.

Post Office stays open, hours may be cut 45 minutes each weekday
(Posted Thursday, July 17, 2014) Residents attending a meeting Wednesday gave a sigh of relief to hear the Eagleville Post Office will not be closing, saying they had already lost their bank and did not want to lose their post office too. Instead the recommendation for the facility will be to reduce the number of hours the window service portion will be open per day on weekdays to six. Currently the post office is open weekdays 6 hours and 45 minutes. All else, including access to the post office boxes and delivery of the mail, would remain the same. The change will need final approval before going into effect sometime between September and January. FULL STORY

City officials have mailed 132 letters requesting an easement from those living along the initial sewer line route. The city's engineer, Jamie Reed of SEC Inc., last week stressed the urgency for residents to sign the easement documents because the city's contractor is ready to install the equipment at their homes. He noted the sewer system has been bid, and the contractor has been on the job for months already. FULL STORY
