appy November Williamson County and from all of us here at YOUR Williamson and Robertson Media Group – a very Happy Thanksgiving! This is the start of the season of thanks and giving and there is nowhere on earth, I suspect, that knows how to do those two things better than here in Williamson County. We are a community of givers and we have much to be thankful for. I am in awe and inspired to do more and be more grateful every day when I see the generosity of spirit exhibited here and the simple everyday things we are so blessed to have by living here. I hope you will take a moment this season and enjoy the beauty of fall in the gorgeous countryside of Williamson County, take a stroll down our magnificent Main Street, say thank you to someone in law enforcement or one of the many workers who keep our city and county clean and safe, thank the many people who run non-profits and help the less fortunate have a place in our community too. Really just take a look around – I guarantee you will find multiple reasons to give thanks this holiday season. We are thankful this month for many reasons too! First and foremost for our continued growth and success as YOUR Community Magazine and for your ongoing support monthly! Thank you Williamson County. We are also thankful for our growing staff– we have added three new faces with this issue – welcome Phil Cobucci with BAM Solutions who will handle our website and social media; and Kayla Bybee and Caitlin Daschner as our new graphic designers and creative geniuses! We look forward to a few more new faces coming this month and we continue to find every day, validation for what we do and what we love – serving the community – it just doesn’t get any better than that. Make sure amidst family time, football games, turkeys and shopping that you enjoy some fun November events! We are proud to sponsor Wine Down Main Street, the Turkey Trot, Fairy Wings & Pirate Things and ‘Tis the Season and encourage you to attend and support great organizations like Mercy Children’s Clinic, Boys and Girls Club, GraceWorks and the Junior League. Give thanks this November, enjoy family and friends! Count your blessings and enjoy the bounty of our lives here in Williamson County.

’Tis the Season Holiday Marketplace is a three-day shopping event filled with aisle after aisle of upscale gifts from over 100 unique merchants across the country and is taking place November 18-20 at the Nashville Convention Center benefiting the Junior League of Nashville. In its fifth year, ‘Tis the Season is a major fundraiser for the Junior League of Nashville with all proceeds going directly into the community to support their mission of improving the lives of women, children, and families. Last year’s ‘Tis the Season welcomed over 100 local and national merchants offering shoppers items like designer clothing, posh accessories, gourmet food, home décor, housewares and many other high-end items. This year, the Junior League of Nashville will host three days of shopping and special events, including Christmas with the Clauses, Santa Snaps, Preview: Let the Shopping Begin and Girls Night Out: Mischief & Magic. The move to the Nashville Convention Center will allow the event to expand their roster of merchants and attract more shoppers. To accommodate shoppers, valet parking will also be available. The Junior League of Nashville is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The Junior League of Nashville reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and a commitment to voluntarism. It is a premier women’s volunteer organization that offers our members the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with others who are unified by a desire to give back to our community. Through the talents of a diverse membership they will support and enrich the lives of women, children and families in our community. The Junior League of Nashville (JLN) was founded in 1922 by a group of visionary women committed to serving the Nashville community in a volunteer capacity. Today, JLN has almost 1600 members and remains committed to developing the potential of women as leaders and grassroots volunteers in charitable causes that improve the lives of women, children and families. Community needs on which JLN focuses include abuse and neglect, children and families at risk, educationally disadvantaged youth, children’s and women’s health and quality of life. The League is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International. Of the 293 leagues around the world with a total of 171,000 members, the Junior League of Nashville is the 13th largest League in the Association. Over 800 active volunteers have joined the Junior League with many goals in mind, but they all work together to build a better community for women, children and families in Nashville. From their beginnings in 1922, and the founding of the revolutionary Junior League Home for Crippled Children, through the next eight decades, Junior League of Nashville members have sought out Nashville’s critical challenges and found the resources and people to change lives. In the 21st century, the Junior League continues its groundbreaking work in the Nashville community by sharing its volunteers and resources with other nonprofit agencies that reach populations in need. For more information on the Junior League of Nashville and this year’s ‘Tis the Season Holiday Marketplace, go to www.jlnashville.org.

Holiday Hulabaloo Story and photography by K. York

The Church Community Center, in downtown Franklin, held the Holiday Hullabaloo, a charitable event that benefits a local non profit agency. This year’s beneficiary, Brightstone, is an agency that provides a comprehensive work and social support network to adults with developmental disabilities. The evening was a definitely a holiday hullabaloo; uplifting and festive with tables decorated in different holiday themes and some guests dressed to match. Everyone enjoyed great food, a silent auction, music, dancing and even a chance to do some holiday shopping. Brightstone brought many of their beautiful and unique items to sell. If you are not familiar with their store you must check it out…and if you haven’t tried their fudge let me tell you it is the best!! It is the perfect gift for any occasion.

Battle of Franklin Re-enactment

Story and Photography by K. York The Blue and Gray troops gathered for two days at the Park at Harlinsdale for the 147th anniversary re-enactment of the Battle of Franklin, which was of one of the largest cavalry battles of the Civil War. Spectators were invited to visit the encampments to see what life was like in the 1860’s. The smell of campfires, the ‘boom’ of the cannons and the soldiers engaging in scenarios that were as authentic as if they stepped off the real battlefield, enlightened spectators to a truly significant and historic experience in our community’s history. The actual Battle of Franklin was fought on November 30, 1864 and over 9,000 soldiers were injured or died that fateful day. During the Sunday morning service on site of the re-enactment, the preacher’s words captured this moment eloquently and poignantly; “A sad illustration….man never attains peace without a struggle echoed throughout the hollow.”

Unknown Soldier Movie Premiere Story & photography by Anna Robertson “Heading Back Home: Franklin’s Unknown Soldier and the Civil War’s Five Bloodiest Hours” was shown to the public for the first time at the Franklin Theatre on October 14th. After the movie showing there was an after party for those that attended at Puckett’s in downtown Franklin. With food and beverages served, everyone enjoyed the night out learning about Franklin’s past and enjoying the preservation for the future. The proceeds from the special ticket prices for the movie premiere benefitted the battlefield preservation efforts in Franklin. This film was documented by Emmy award-winning film producers, Brian Speciale and Jodi Jones-Speciale, who moved to Franklin in 2009; the same year the soldier’s remains were uncovered from a shallow grave during a construction project.

Franklin, Tennessee is a town rich with history. In the summer of 2009, the Battle of Franklin Trust was created to assist in the telling and interpretation of our town’s most important historical event. On a beautiful Wednesday afternoon, November 30, 1864, one of the violent battles of the American Civil War erupted on the south edge of Franklin, one which ultimately helped to decide that long war’s -!"('"  !'+&''""* much of the town would be engulfed with the casualties of the battle, but on the night of November 30, it would be the Carter and McGavock families, as well as the Lotz family, that bore the brunt of the battle’s impact upon the civilian population. Today, the Battle of Franklin Trust tells the story of the short but awful battle, why the campaign through Middle Tennessee occurred, and how the citizens of Franklin endured in the months and years afterward. In the fall of 1864 the war was ##%"! '& -! "!'& ! ' .! "!%' ''& " % were desperately trying to hold on, against increasing numerical odds and a series " #(!&! "&&& "! ''-& %"  Virginia to Georgia. That November, Confederate General John Bell Hood brought his army into Tennessee with the hope of recapturing Nashville, which had been lost to Federal troops in the early months of 1862. To contest his movement northward, General William T. % !&#''%""#&'"!!&& from Georgia, before he initiated his % '" '    % '%""#& were commanded by General John M. "-"% %&'"!'&& ' of Hood’s.

Their intent was to continue moving north all the way to Nashville, but the bridges spanning the Harpeth River north " %!!*% #&&&""- was forced to construct a defensive line

south of town while the bridges were repaired. That morning Franklin found itself squarely in the path of the gods of war. Hood arrived at the head of his army early that afternoon and after scanning the Federal position opted to launch a frontal assault. His hope *& '" &'%"+ "- "%  slipped away yet again.

Carrie McGavock After the war, both Carter House and Carnton became visible reminders of the fateful Battle of Franklin. Moreover, in 1866, John and Carrie McGavock led the way in establishing a cemetery near their home where the remains of Confederate soldiers killed at Franklin were buried. They maintained the cemetery for the balance of their lives. Today, the Carter House and its outbuildings remain scarred by bullets and Carnton &'&#+&""&'!&"!'&.""%& %"(& &'"!& " ' ''- have been preserved in recent years and both preservation and reclamation efforts continue.

McKenzies Mill

Lexus of Cool Springs hosted the 2011 fundraiser for No Veteran Left Behind. No Veteran Left Behind’s mission is to serve homeless and newly returning soldiers and veterans who struggle with substance abuse and post traumatic stress disorder. Supporters believe that raising money to assist vets in their efforts to regain their lives is the least they can do after the sacrifices they have given for us. It was an evening of great entertainment, good food and fine wine while raising money for men and women we salute.

he crowd gathered on a beautiful morning on the campus of Battle Ground Academy to support wounded warriors and bike enthusiasts on their 25 and 50 mile bike rides. The 2011 Soldier Ride started and ended on the BGA campus to honor former graduate Tre Ponder, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005. The Soldier Ride, an initiative of the Wounded Warrior & photos (Amy Hebden) Project,story enables wounded soldiers like the Honorary Man of the Day, Ben Maenza, the opportunity to race through the aid of special fitted cycles.

Ben was presented with his special fitted hand operated cycle by U-Haul marketing president, Greg Ruffing. It is with great hope that through cycling, wounded soldiers will have an experience that will help them in their physical and emotional recovery from the war. Over $134,000 had been raised at race time. Tony Caldwell and Brasfield & Gorrie General Contractors, Inc. were recognized as the Soldier Ride’s top fundraising individual and team respectively.

The Brown Dog Foundation is a non- profit organization that provides financial assistance to pet owners when their pet faces a life threatening, but treatable condition or illness. Supporters believe that sometimes all it takes is a little help from a friend to restore the quality of life for the pet, as well as their owner.

With the “sexy sophisticatedâ€? look of a smoldering smokey eye to a voluptuous red or deep plum lip, these are your makeup must do’s. A smokey eye with a sexy nude lip, or an eye-catching lip (my recommendation is “Impulse Redâ€? by brianne) with natural eyes and a liquid liner look (my personal favorite), you can’t go wrong. Amp up the volume and don’t be afraid to go bold! If liquid liner is a scary concept to you, like most other women, try a black powder with an angled brush and water to create the bold wing tipped liquid look. Using the brush allows you to have more control over the placement of the shadow as well as helping you smudge it out. But even with the perfect makeup, those brows can ruin it all! Perfectly manicured and sculpted brows is a must!

Hi, I’m chef Tabor Luckey

er

n Ball

Roe

and I am the executive chef/owner of three restaurants in the West Nashville area: Whitfield’s Restaurant and Bar, Bria Bistro, and our newest addition, The Harding House at Belle Meade Plantation. I am excited about being the resident chef/journalist for YOUR Magazine. I’m a trained chef, coming from Johnson and Wales in Providence, RI. I have spent time overseas in London, Paris, and South Wales. I have worked in many facets of the restaurant industry: as a dishwasher; preparing salads; sautéing; grilling; ice carver; corporate trainer and executive chef for a local restaurant group; a culinary instructor; and for the past year, an owner and chef of three great local restaurants. After spending most of the last 19 years of my life in the kitchen of restaurants all over the US, as well as Europe, I still love waking up and knowing my office is a kitchen. As the evenings and mornings are getting colder, and the sweltering afternoon heat is replaced with a pleasant 60 to 70 degrees, this marks the end of a hot summer and the beginning of fall. With the trees changing from their dark healthy greens to soft maroons, lively reds, and vibrant yellows, a whole new harvest is waiting for its bounty to be enjoyed by all of us. Talking with guests of my restaurants and even my mom, it has become very apparent that the majority of the public have forgotten that fruits and vegetables still have seasons. Apples are the first fruit that come to mind. Although available year-round, apples are harvested at the peak of their crispness, sweetness and ripeness in the late summer and into fall. It takes me back to my childhood memories back in Montana; I grew up with a few apple trees in my yard, and my mother would put my brother and me to work on Sunday mornings— picking bags and bags of apples—with the reward of a fresh baked apple pie at the end of our Sunday supper. Just the thought of the smell transports me back to those Sunday afternoons. That being said, the fall harvest is one of my favorites: apples, beets, cabbage, pumpkins, squash, greens, Pictured: Chili rubbed Salmon with caramelized pear risotto, roasted brussels sprouts and cauliflower with apple brandy sauté and pears, begging to be eaten at their full potential. That’s the approach that I, along with Chef de Cuisine Matt Smith, have taken at Whitfield’s Restaurant and Bar when making this fall’s menu changes—from the double bone-in pork chop with sweet pumpkin and plantain mash, with braised red cabbage and a hard cider reduction—to the chili rubbed salmon with a caramelized pear risotto, roasted brussels sprouts, and cauliflower with an apple brandy sauté. If you’re not sure what is in season, stop and ask one of the many road side farmers, go to the farmers’ market, ask the chef at your favorite local restaurant, and if all else fails, there is something called the internet. I invite you to stop in and check out our fabulous menus at Whitfield’s, The Harding House, and our most convenient-to-Franklin restaurant, Bria Bistro Italiano. “Like” us in person and then “Like” us on Facebook... Happy Fall, Y’all... november| Y( )UR 37

Thompson’s Station Fall Festival Story and Photography by Amy Hebden It was a picture perfect day in September for the 2011 Thompson’s Station Fall Festival. The day consisted of live entertainment, kid’s activities, the Tennessee Equine Hospital Open House, dance performances, arts and crafts and of course great food. The Chili Cook-Off was sensational and the competition was fierce. The winners for the Judges Pick were Todd Masters of Jack of Hearts BBQ with his “Jack of Hearts Brisket Chili” and Steve Clifton and his “Deadly Illusions Chili.” Jack of Hearts also won the People’s Choice category. All proceeds from the Thompson’s Station Fall Festival will benefit the Thompson’s Station Community Association, which in turn benefits the community’s parks and recreation facilities.

Rustic Charm

Bring a bounty of rich and rustic autumn accents to the table this Thanksgiving

No sooner than Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is ready to knock at our doors with equal fervor. Thanksgiving is not just about giving thanks for our many blessings but it is also an occasion wherein family members and close friends come together to enjoy each other’s company. Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and I am very excited to be around family and friends to enjoy some delightful and delicious meals together. I love a beautifully decorated table all ready for a Thanksgiving feast. Decorating a Thanksgiving dinner table is a very old tradition. The idea behind table arrangements is to make your guests feel welcome while eating their meal. An authentic dinner table has a variety of things placed on it like china, a specific arrangement of cutlery, glassware for water and drinks, napkins folded neatly in their holders, and of course a centerpiece. Here the vibrancy of autumn shines through with aged wood and the color of leaves and mums. A mix of antique dinner and dessert plates, vintage amber glasses, and the simplicity of candles sets the mood. Jewel tones and saturated color heighten the appearance of the Thanksgiving table and celebrate the season’s bright foliage. The burnished finishes unify the look of the

table, and the display lets you enjoy objects you love but don’t always have the opportunity to use. Favorite items like colorful linen napkins or a few family heirlooms also inspired the overall look. Employ a sideboard to keep plates and glassware handy for the second course and the dining table uncluttered. So this year set your table to reflect the warm colors of the season. I hope you are blessed to be around the family and friends you hold most dear. For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, For love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

It was a star-studded evening in downtown Franklin as the red carpet was rolled out for the remake of the classic “Footloose� movie premiere. Fans lined Main Street in front of the historic Franklin Theatre to sneak a peek at their favorite stars. Julianne Hough, Kenny Wormald, Blake Shelton and Big & Rich excited the crowd posing for a few pictures and signing autographs.
