Children flood the Metro Soccer Complex on Saturday looking for Easter eggs at the 10th annual Southeast Easter Event, Antioch's biggest egg hunt. / Alan Poizner / For The Tennessean
Antioch’s biggest Easter egg hunt is a combination of thousands of rambunctious kids and many more thousands of eggs — some filled with nothing more than a mini-pack of SweeTarts, others with orange slips of paper redeemable for big toys.
“He found 14 eggs, so he is winning in my book,” said John Little III, smiling down at his son, John Little IV, as the boy had a bat painted on his face Saturday. “This is our second year. It provides a lot of fun, it’s diverse, and they’ve got an age 4 and younger category for the little kids.”
In its 10th year, the Southeast Easter Event is the brainchild of Metro Councilwoman Karen Johnson, who said she was inspired by neighbors who asked her to put together a festival that was uniquely Antioch.
It’s an egg race more than an egg hunt, with the colorful globes in full view on a Donelson Pike soccer field. The free event also featured a performance stage, booths selling food and services, a Metro Nashville Police Department SWAT team display and — perhaps most popular — SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and other characters posing for cellphone pictures.

Mayor Karl Dean visits Lakeview Design Center Elementary for Siren Installation

MEDIA ADVISORY
Mayor to Visit Tornado Siren Installation on Thursday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor Karl Dean will visit the installation of a new tornado siren at Lakeview Design Center at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 7. The siren is one of 20 being installed as part of the expansion and upgrade of the city’s Tornado Warning Siren System.

In addition to increasing the number of sirens in Davidson County from 73 to 93, the sound of all sirens will change from its current electronic tones to a mechanically-generated tone similar in sound to an old-fashioned air-raid warning, which will be easier to hear and will travel farther.

Installation of the 20 new sirens will be completed by the end of the week. Upgrades to the old sirens will begin soon after.

The new siren at the elementary school at Lakeview will cover the surrounding area that includes Nashboro Village and much of the area east of the Murfreesboro Road and Bell Road intersection.

The purpose of the tornado sirens is to provide emergency weather alerts to those in outdoor settings when a tornado warning has been issued anywhere in Davidson County. The sirens are not a substitute for people utilizing a home weather radio or monitoring local media coverage of severe weather.


WHO: Karl Dean, Mayor of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville

WHAT: Installation of tornado siren

WHEN: Thursday, March 7, 2013
10:30 a.m.

WHERE: Lakeview Design Center
455 Rural Hill Road
