$3 million remainder of My People Fund contributed to Mountain Tough
WVLT Friday May 5, 2017

On Friday, Dolly Parton announced her decision to donate the remaining $3 million from the My People Fund to Mountain Tough, WVLT reports.

Mountain Tough is the official team to help with rebuilding and recovery efforts in Sevier County after wildfires blazed through the Smoky Mountains in November.

The announcement comes after Dolly surprised wildfire survivors Thursday by giving My People Fund recipients $5,000 each at the final check distribution instead of the previously allotted $1,000.

The money from the My People Fund went to owners or renters who lost their primary residences in the November wildfires.

After the wildfires caused thousands to evacuate, Dolly Parton launched the My People Fund that has raised more than $9.3 million thanks to donations flooding in from across the country.

The fund issued monthly checks to over 921 people.

Tennessee House OKs tightened amusement park safety rules
AP Friday May 5, 2017

Tennessee could soon tighten amusement park safety regulations after people were injured on rides in two incidents last year.

The Tennessee House passed a bill Thursday with heightened safety requirements. The Senate approved it Wednesday, so it heads to Gov. Bill Haslam.

In September, eight people were hospitalized after a ride shut down at the Delta Fair in Memphis.

At the Greene County Fair in August, three girls fell 30 to 45 feet and were injured when a Ferris wheel basket overturned.

The legislation would increase inspections and let state regulators hire inspectors or keep using third-party groups.

It would require operators to be at least 16 years old, running one ride at a time and present while it runs.

It would let injured people sue ride owners and operators.

 


Tennessee tourism officials: Visitors up 4.4 percent in 2016
AP Friday May 5, 2017

Tennessee tourism officials say 110 million people visited the state last year, a 4.4 percent jump from 2015.

The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development says the research from DK Shifflet shows Tennessee is a top-10 state for domestic travel for the third consecutive year.

About 80 percent, or 88.4 million, of those Tennessee visitors were leisure travelers, a 5.1 percent boost compared to 2015.

State tourism officials attribute the increase in leisure travelers to a jump in overnight stays, which grew by 5.2 percent.

Starting Sunday, the department is celebrating a national tourism week with fairs and free windshield washing at the state?s 14 welcome centers.
