"Things are quiet these days at the future site of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro. From the blacktop parking lot at Veals Road and Bradyville Pike -- the sole sign of construction -- the only sounds are chirping sparrows and the occasional passing car. But mosque leaders hope the sound of construction equipment will soon be heard. They pulled a building permit in late May, are finalizing bids from contractors and hope to break ground sometime in August. After a year of protests, court hearings and a suspicious fire, starting construction will be a relief, mosque leaders said." (07/18/11)
