HRC Executive Charged
WSMV Wednesday May 17, 2017

A member of the executive staff with the Tennessee Human Rights Commission is accused of sexual exploiting a minor.
Christopher Stephenson, 42, was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
Investigators, acting on a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, determined that an IP address used to access child pornography online was registered to Stephenson's Antioch address.
A search warrant was executed and Stephenson's electronic devices were seized. Police said sexual images of minors were found during forensic examinations of the equipment by Metro police.
Stephenson is the Title VI compliance director with the state-run organization.
His bond was set at $500,000.
Police said Stephenson possessed child pornography and distributed it, but did not produce it.

Haslam Signs Broadband Bill
AP Wednesday May 17, 2017

Gov. Bill Haslam has signed a bill seeking to make it easier for rural areas to get access to the internet.
The governor gave official approval to the Broadband Accessibility Act of 2017 at a ceremony in Brownsville on Tuesday afternoon.
The measure clears the way for nonprofit electric co-ops to start providing both internet and video service. It also provides $45 million in grants and tax credits to co-ops and internet service providers, like AT&T and Comcast, to encourage the development of internet in areas that don't have it.
A last-minute change adopted by lawmakers lowered the minimum internet speed requirement from download speeds from the federal definition of 25 megabits per second to 10 megabits per second.

 


More Than 2 Thousand Bills Considered
AP Wednesday May 17, 2017

While much of the energy and attention of this year's legislative session was focused on 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.

 


TWRA Says Watch for Bear Cubs
Tuesday May 16, 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.
