Middle Tennessee District Fair Named
State AA Champion in 2015

The 2015 Middle Tennessee District Fair has been named the 2015 State Champion AA Fair by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

The award was accepted by Fair Manager Heath Hill and Fairest of the Fair Amanda Remke at the TAF Convention in Nashville on Saturday Evening (January 23). When asked for comment, Heath thanked the hundreds of volunteers and thousands of fair patrons who made the 2015 MTDF a huge success.

The Middle Tennessee District Fair has been sponsored by the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club since 1950 and has been recognized by the state on more than 20 occasions.  The 2016 MTDF fair will run from September 26 thru October 2 at Lawrenceburg Rotary Park.

Sharp Transport Earns High
Environmental Honors

Sharp Transport, Inc., located in Ethridge, was designated as a SmartWay Partner in 2013 and again in 2015.  Sharp was the first company in the country to be awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's SmartWay Elite Designation for its fleet of over 300 trailers.

Due to their achievements since joining the public-private partnership, Sharp was named as one of the top 50 Green fleets for 2015 by Heavy Duty Trucking, a national publication,  joining companies such Coca-Cola, UPS, Con-Way, FedEx, and Pepsico.

It's all about aerodynamics.  The trailer tail opens up leading air flow away from the truck and eliminating pull-back.  Sharp has already seen a 3-5% efficiency improvement.  Another positive is the company;s Automatic Tire Inflation System regulates tire pressure, reducing low-rolling resistance and boosting tread life.  The goal for SmartWay partners is to move more goods, more miles with lower emissions and less energy.
