State Treasurer David Lillard Jr. is offering an incentive for families to start saving for college. He visited Stewarts Creek Middle School in Smyrna on Friday and announced scholarships in the amount of $5,290 will be given to two families by the TNStars 529 College Savings Program. The program allows people to save money for children's college expenses with tax advantages. To compete for the scholarships, children in kindergarten through second grade must participate in a coloring contest. And children in third through eighth grades must complete an online interactive guide about the importance of saving money. Two names will be selected from among the participants in a random drawing this fall.

We could soon see the price of dairy products go up, and not just for milk but yogurt, cheese, and ice cream as well. "The overall demand of milk globally in dairy products is increasing, but the supply isn't able to keep up with it, so they're looking to export more," said Hatcher Family Dairy. According to the US Dairy Export Council, a lot of the American milk demand comes from China and while demand is growing, production is not. Also contributing to the rise in prices is the price of diesel fuel for hauling the products, equipment and maintenance, and the required day to day activities of dairy farmers.

It’s been a year since 4 young people were found shot to death in a car on Renegade Mountain…while the suspects, Jacob Allen Bennett and Brittany Moser remain behind bars awaiting trial, the families of those left behind are left with trying not only to make sense out of the senseless, but to carry on without their loved ones. The mother of the youngest victim says it still feels like yesterday that her son John Lajeunesse was alive. Julie Lajeunesse continues to keep her son’s spirit and memory alive by sporting his beloved tye dye to court appearances, and has planned something special to commemorate the sad anniversary. LaJeunesse says she has been working on placing a memorial park bench, in her son John’s memory, at the Crossville skate park. A ceremony placing the bench is in the works for next week.
A female football player from Stone Elementary has been named Homecoming Queen. 8th grader Erin Rassel was crowned queen last night (Thursday) in what has become a first for the school-a girl on the football team. Rassel says this is a role she will not continue next year at the high school level, because she says the sport is much more aggressive at that level. Coach John Barnes says Erin earned not only her spot on the team, but respect from her teammates, whom he says consider her to be “One of the guys.”
