Gas Prices
Wednesday September 13, 2017

Gas prices have begun to plateau for the first time in more than 15 days despite Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma making landfall in the southeast. Holding steady for five days at $2.67, the national gas price average is just three cents more expensive compared to last week. Tennessee's average increased to $2.59 - 4 cents higher than this time last week.
AAA spokesperson Stephanie Milani said Tennessee drivers should see gas prices begin to plateau soon. However, wholesale prices were volatile last week reacting to the predictions of Hurricane Irma, so drivers may not see prices fall as quickly as they rose.
Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.59 on Monday, an increase of 4 cents compared to last week.

 


Tenn. utility workers headed to Florida, Georgia following Hurricane Irma
WVLT Wednesday September 13, 2017

Volunteer lineworkers from 11 electric cooperatives are headed to help in restoration efforts following Hurricane Irma. Over 90 lineworkers have volunteered their time and skills to those in need in Georgia and Florida. Plans were in progress to send crews last week, but co-ops were reluctant to leave until Irma had passed through Tennessee. Now that the storm has gone through, some crews have already left, and others are making final preparations to leave for hard-hit Florida and Georgia. Tennessee isn't the only one sending volunteers, however. 5,000 lineworkers from 25 other states are also heading down the the hurricane ravaged areas.

Youth between the ages of 10-16, who are hunter safety certified and who have never harvested a deer, are eligible to win a spot in what has become an annual special hunt. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will host the hunt in conjunction with the opening day of the 2017 Tennessee Young Sportsman Deer Hunt on Saturday, Oct. 28.

Youth from various regions from across the state have participated in the event held at Buffalo Ridge Refuge in Humphreys County.

A total of 30 young hunters will be selected to participate. The area incorporates a variety of wildlife management practices and totals more than 2,000 acres of prime deer habitat. Treestands will be provided including three which are handicap accessible.

A Friday night cookout will be held. Sites will be available for those who wish to camp (participants must provide their own camping gear). Breakfast and lunch will also be provided Saturday.

TWRA will hold a drawing and the winners will be notified by Oct. 20. Confirmation packets will be sent to the successful participants that will include directions and a list of items to bring as well as a list of area hotels. Winning hunters are responsible for providing the appropriate Tennessee hunting license and must be accompanied by a non-hunting adult at least 21 years of age or older.

Interested hunters may complete an application and mail it to the following address: Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Youth Deer Hunt Giveaway, P.O. Box 40747, Nashville, TN 37204.

TWRA Behind on Endangered Species Updates
AP Wednesday September 13, 2017

An audit has found that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has not updated the state's endangered species list in 16 years, even though it is required to do so every two years. Comptroller Justin Wilson's office said in the audit released Tuesday that the state is also running afoul of an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to annually submit additions and deletions from the list of threatened species. This could cause Tennessee to lose federal grants. The head of the state wildlife agency's biodiversity division was unaware of the reporting requirement until 2013, and officials are in the process of creating a new endangered species list.
