Officials Look for Funding for Driver Center
Jay Walker Thursday May 18, 2017

Local officials again are looking for ways to fund the Warren County Driver Testing Center. This after the Governor did not include it in the state budget.
Monday night, McMinnville Mayor Jimmy Haley appealed to members of the Warren County Commission to once again work with the City to fund a way to keep the Driver Testing Center open.
The state closed it last May as a money-saving measure. But the City Board and County Commission were able to provide funds to reopen the center in the fall of last year.
Mayor Haley said he has requested a meeting with the governor to discuss the matter.

 


TWRA Says Watch for Bear Cubs
Thursday May 18, 2017

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is reminding residents that there may be a good reason why some black bear cubs appear to be alone.
Mother bears tend to search for food when it is scarce. Mothers place cubs in areas that they believe are safe while she is searching for food. A cub may be alone for hours until the mother returns.
TWRA says this is similar to a human leaving a child with a babysitter, however, the "sitter" could be a tree near a person's home.
If a cub is actually an orphan, TWRA will take the animal to the Appalachian Bear Rescue for rehabilitation. Only TWRA and National Park Service are allowed to catch and deliver a bear to the organization.
TWRA should only be contacted about a suspected orphaned bear cub if the animal has been alone for more than 36 hours or if the mother is confirmed dead.
ABR says if you spot a bear cub, do not go near it. Also, do not take pictures of it by standing under a tree. This can make the mother feel threatened and not return.
You might remember that last year a bear was spotted in Warren, Coffee and Grundy counties.

Democrats Ready for J-Day
AP Thursday May 18, 2017

Tennessee Democrats are preparing for their annual Jackson Day fundraiser they are now referring to as "J-Day."
The event has long been named after President Andrew Jackson, a Tennessean who is considered the father of the Democratic Party.
While the state party has celebrated Jackson's legacy as a general and the country's seventh president, Chairwoman Mary Mancini has said Democrats shouldn't ignore the former president's participation in slavery and the forced removal of native Americans.
Party spokesman Jason Freeman says the official name of Friday's event is the Three Star Jackson Day Dinner. But a Tuesday press release touting the event as being sold out refers only to "J-Day."
Numerous speeches are scheduled for statewide candidates and office holders.
