Gas Prices Poised for 3-5 Cent Hike
AAA/Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday November 28, 2017

Look for a bounce back week for gas prices, which have declined for the past two weeks. Prices at the pump should increase this week by 3 to 5 cents, as a high stakes OPEC meeting draws near. According to AAA, Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.29 on Sunday. The state average is 2.5 cents less than last week, yet remains 35 cents higher than this time last year. Representatives of OPEC, Russia, and other oil producing countries will meet on Thursday to decide whether to extend an agreement to reduce oil production levels by 1.8 million barrels per day. Preliminary reports are that the agreement could extend through the end of 2018.

 


New Inn Approved at Fall Creek Falls

Plans to rebuild guest lodging at Tennessee's largest and most-visited state park have been approved.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports the State Building Commission approved the plans for Fall Creek Falls State Park. Work at the 26,000-acre park is expected to take one and a half to two years.
Two existing facilities are to be torn down, and a single inn built with roughly 85 rooms along with a new restaurant and conference center. The state Department of Environment and Conservation would continue to operate the inn and restaurant.
State Senator Janice Bowling says she favored an original renovation plan that would cost at least $12 million compared to department commissioner Bob Martineau's $25 million estimate to rebuild.
Senator Bowling said Friday she understands the project may start in May.

 


Candidates Won't Release Tax Returns
AP Tuesday November 28, 2017

Four of the seven major candidates for Tennessee governor are declining to release details of their federal income tax returns.
The Tennessean newspaper asked the five Republicans and two Democrats in the race for copies of their federal tax filings. U.S. Rep. Diane Black and fellow Republican state House Speaker Beth Harwell provided financial summaries, and Democrat Craig Fitzhugh released his 2016 tax return.
Among the remaining Republicans, former state Sen. Mae Beavers and businessmen Randy Boyd and Bill Lee declined the request. As did Democratic former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.
Dean and Boyd said they may consider releasing details in the future.
Lee, who runs his family-owned construction company, said he would not release his income in the interest of "protecting my business and the over 1,200 employees there."

TBI/Peg Broadcasting News Monday November 27, 2017

A Smith County man has been arrested after he allegedly tried to murder his stepson. On Saturday night, November 25th, TBI Agents responded to Gordonsville to investigate a report of an officer-involved shooting. The investigation revealed that Smith County deputies were dispatched to a shots-fired call on Tribble Lane. Upon arrival, someone began shooting at the deputies from a wood line. Deputies returned fire, and 55-year-old Stacye Nash was struck. He was subsequently transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center. During the course of the investigation, Agents, working with law enforcement officers with the Smith County Sheriff's Department and Gordonsville Police Department, developed information that earlier in the evening, Nash had gone to the nearby residence of his stepson, and had fired shots at him. On Sunday, Agents arrested Stacye Lee Nash and charged him with one count of Criminal Attempt to Commit First Degree Murder. He was booked into the Smith County Jail, on a $150,000 bond.
