The State Fire Marshal's Office is reminding Tennesseans to change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when they set back their clocks back 1 hour Saturday night for daylight saving time. Officials say the early warning of a smoke alarm can double the chances of survival by increasing the amount of time a person has to escape a fire in their home. Seventy percent of the fire fatalities in Tennessee last year occurred in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. (Photo Courtesy WVLT).
LAKE TANSI, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Cumberland County Sheriff Casey Cox said two people living in the Lake Tansi community recently reported their mail stolen, and he thinks the two cases could be connected. A homeowner told deputies she put a Halloween card with a $25 check in her mailbox Sunday night. The next day, her mailbox was open and the letter was gone. Sheriff Cox said that same day, someone living nearby put a $60 check and $40 in rebates in their mailbox, only to have them stolen as well. The Sheriff said leaving checks or cash in your mailbox to be picked up by the carrier isn't a good idea: "Understand that you're setting yourself up for the potential to be a victim. So I would suggest that people try toget those in the hands of the mail box delivery person, or take them to the post office yourself," said Cox. The second victim said she's learned her lesson, and won't be putting checks in her mailbox again. She said she's warned her neighbors and everyone is keeping an eye out for suspicious activity. The sheriff also said a man living in a different part of the county told deputies he found his outgoing mail ripped up in his yard Thursday morning, but he doesn't think it's related to the other cases.

A Roane State Community College educator has set a new world record for a female living underwater. As of Saturday, October 18, officials say Jessica Fain, an adjunct professor, had been living continuously underwater for 15 days. The previous mark was 14 days, set in 1970 by Dr. Sylvia Earle. Fain is living with Bruce Cantrell, a biology professor, in an underwater habitat in the Florida Keys for 73 days. They are pursing the world record for longest time spent living underwater. According to the Guinness World Records, the current overall record is 69 days, 19 minutes, which was set by Richard Presley in 1992. Fain and Cantrell submerged on October 3 and plan to resurface December 15.
