Final defendant sentenced in military equipment scheme
AP Wednesday January 10, 2018

A Tennessee man has been sentenced for his role in a conspiracy to steal and sell Army equipment from Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The U.S. attorney's office in Nashville said 29-year-old Jonathan Wolford of Clarksville was sentenced Tuesday to three years' probation and ordered to pay $2,000 restitution to the Army. Wolford pleaded guilty to conspiracy to steal and sell Army property. Seven people, including Wolford, have pleaded guilty in the case. The eighth person, John Roberts, was convicted at a jury trial in August and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Four people were sentenced in December and the rest this week. The large military installation lies along the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.

 


Tennessee Detention Fire Injures Four

Two inmates and two officers have been injured in a fire at a correctional facility in Tennessee. Chattanooga Fire spokesman Bruce Garner tells news outlets that the two inmates received minor burns in the Monday evening fire that broke out in a jail cell at the Silverdale Detention Facilities. The inmates and two officers also suffered from smoke inhalation. All four were hospitalized. Garner says all inmates from the cell block were evacuated, and the fire was extinguished within five minutes. The fire department and Hamilton County Sheriff's Office are investigating. Facility spokesman Amanda Gilchrist initially said no inmates were injured, but later said the private company that manages Silverdale, CoreCivic, is aware of the injuries.

 


No Recount For Abortion Amendment
AP Wednesday January 10, 2018

A federal appeals court has ruled Tennessee won't have to recount votes for a state constitutional amendment passed in 2014 that allows tougher abortion restrictions. A 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals opinion Tuesday says the vote tabulating method was reasonable and true to the meaning of the state constitution and didn't infringe on plaintiffs' voting rights. The order overturns an April 2016 district court ruling that sided with eight voters that sued the state by ordering the recount.

 


UPDATE: One Sent To Hospital, Two Others Not Injured In Home Explosion
Crossville Chronicle/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday January 10, 2018

A Crossville man was sent to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville after his home exploded on Monday night. Jay Colton Jr. sustained second-degree burns over 20 percent of his body. His wife Tonya and a child managed to get out unharmed. A pet dog reportedly died in the blaze, which is believed to have started in the den. The explosion happened around 8:30 p.m. Monday night at the home on Roma Drive in Foxfire subdivision. The blast rocked the immediate area and was reportedly felt about 6 miles away in all directions by people in Lake Tansi, the Homesteads and as far away as Walmart. It was first thought that a propane tank exploded, but according to the Crossville Chronicle, no propane tank was hooked up to the house. The home does have natural gas and investigators are looking at that as a possible cause of the fire.

Wednesday January 10, 2018

Due to the illness and weather related school closings across the state, the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) has extended the deadline to submit the 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for TN Promise eligibility to Friday, January 26, 2018. Even though the deadline has been extended, tnAchieves is continuing to push immediate FAFSA completion. tnAchieves will be heavily communicating to students and parents who have yet to file the 2018-2019 FAFSA via email and text message until the deadline, and will also update our class of 2018 FAFSA completion dashboard and county map regularly to help track progress across the state.
