tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Friday May 19, 2017

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD) Commissioner Burns Phillips announces a preliminary unemployment rate of 4.7 percent for April, dropping from the revised rate of 5.1 percent in March. This decrease is greater than the tenth of a percentage point fall the national rate experienced in April, which put the U.S. preliminary rate at 4.4 percent for the month. Tennessee?s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has not declined this much since January of 1984.

Over the past year, Tennessee's unemployment rate experienced a slight uptick of a tenth of a percentage point, increasing from 4.6 to 4.7 percent. The national rate decreased by six-tenths of a percentage point, from 5.0 to 4.4 percent.

The 2017 National Safe Boating Week is May 20-26 and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will be participating to promote the wear of life jackets as the summer boating season begins. The Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day is Friday, May 19 with the goal of demonstrating how easy it is to wear a life jacket. Participants wear a life jacket to work, demonstrating how easy to wear one, even while at work. Those who wear a life jacket to work are asked to have a photograph taken and message the Wear IT! Facebook page. Group photos are also welcome.

On Saturday, May 20, Ready, Set, Wear It!, will enter its eighth year in trying to bring awareness on the importance of life jacket wear by holding a world record day. The worldwide event kicks off the start of National Safe Boating Week. Participants will again be part of the attempt to break a world record for the most life jackets worn at one time. Both events help usher in National Safe Boating Week which is annually held the week prior to Memorial Day Weekend. Boating partners across the United States and Canada are teaming to promote safe boating practices, including the wear of life jackets for National Safe Boating Week and throughout the 2017 boating season. The goal of National Safe Boating Week is to educate the public about the importance of safe boating practices and wearing life jackets while on the water.

Shanks motion to replace all of the sidewalks in downtown by contract was defeated in a 3-2 vote.

Peg Broadcasting News Friday May 19, 2017

The case against Daniel Clark, the 28-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a Nashville gas station clerk while on run with 15-year-old Trinity Quinn, has been sent to the grand jury. During a hearing Thursday morning in Nashville, it was revealed that Clark confessed to shooting John Stevens 10 times when Stevens refused to give Clark the keys to his car. When asked why he shot the clerk so many times, Clark said he did not want Stevens to suffer. It was also revealed in court Thursday that Mr. Stevens was not alone in the store as first reported. The store manager was in the bathroom while the attendant was brutally gunned down. After Clark and Quinn left the store, the manager came out of hiding and called 911. When police caught up with the pair, Clark had two guns in his possession. One of those guns was reported stolen by his brother and is believed to be the murder weapon.
