Missing White County Teen Found In Wilson County
WVLT/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday May 17, 2017

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation cancelled an Endangered Child Alert for Sarah Key, a 17-year-old girl from White County, Tennessee, after she was reported found by the Wilson County Sheriff?s Office in Watertown on Tuesday. Investigators said Key was last seen in her home on May 12. Authorities believed the 17-year-old may have been with a 30-year-old, white male. There is an order of protection in place against the unnamed white male to stay away from Key. Authorities have not revealed if that man was with Key when she was found.

 


More than 2K bills and resolutions considered in Tennessee
AP Wednesday May 17, 2017

While much of the energy and attention of this year's legislative session was focused on Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's gas tax proposal, there were more than 2,000 other bills and resolutions considered by lawmakers before they concluded their business last week.

Some made a big splash before being quietly abandoned. For example, a bill seeking to do away with ending a 40-year-old state law granting legitimacy to children conceived through artificial insemination never came up for a hearing after making international headlines when it was introduced by a Republican lawmaker.

Haslam's transportation funding plan was ultimately passed and signed into law after a solid majority of lawmakers were convinced that the proposal made enough tax cuts in other areas to offset the state's first gas tax hike since 1989.

Tick and Mosquito Season is Here
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday May 16, 2017

Ticks and mosquitoes are now out in force and looking for food. The meal of choice for both is blood, creating opportunities to spread a variety of serious illnesses such as Zika Virus Disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever as they move from one bite victim to another. In 2016, there were 581 cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever in Tennessee; between 2004 and 2014, there were 16 deaths attributed to Rocky Mountain spotted fever in the state. Rocky Mountain spotted fever and ehrlichiosis are preventable by avoiding tick bites, promptly removing ticks that do get on the skin and seeking medical care for a fever or rash after a possible tick bite. All common tick-borne diseases found in Tennessee can be easily treated with antibiotics if detected early. Keeping grass trimmed and plants cropped around homes are good practices to prevent ticks. Wearing long sleeves and long pants, using Food and Drug Administration-approved insect repellents and treating clothing with permethrin can help prevent tick and mosquito bites.

Diseases spread by mosquitoes include West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, Zika virus disease and many others. Tennessee has already recorded two cases of West Nile Virus in 2017, which is unusual this early in the year. The Tennessee Department of Health continues to be concerned about the spread of Zika virus. While most people infected with Zika virus have very mild disease, infection during pregnancy can cause very severe problems including microcephaly, a condition causing a baby?s head and brain to be smaller than expected, and other neurologic and developmental problems. In 2016, more than five dozen people in Tennessee were infected with Zika virus disease while traveling to other countries where the disease is common. To lessen the risk of mosquito bites, avoid areas with standing water. Tip and toss or drain and cover objects near your home or business that may contain water. A mosquito can lay eggs in a container as small as a soda bottle cap. Repair screens on your home to prevent mosquitoes from entering.

By taking a few simple precautions you can help ensure that you and your family have a healthy summer.
