The Cumberland County High School mock DUI will be held on Thursday, April 13, 2017 in front of the school on Stanley Street. The exercise is a mock accident with emphasis on consequences of students drinking and driving on prom night or any other time. Police, and other emergency vehicles will be arriving around 10 am at the school to treat and transport "injured" students involved in the accident. Ruth Lucas, who has coordinated the event for 17 years, says the program has seen outstanding results ever year, with no arrests on prom night and no accidents or fatalities, since it began in 2002.
Officials now say that two people are dead following Tuesday’s deadly shooting in the parking lot of the Ficosa Plant in Cookeville. The man involved in what police call a “domestic incident”, 20-year-old Tyler Wayne Stults, has died from his injuries. According to the Cookeville Police, witnesses say, 30 year old Angelique Elizabeth Deplae approached the vehicle in which 35 year old Rebecca Ann Louise Marion Crowley and Stults were sitting around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Deplae opened the driver’s door, began firing a revolver into the vehicle then apparently walked toward the front of the vehicle and took her own life. The investigation revealed that Mr. Stults and Ms. Deplae had been in a prior domestic relationship. Crowley remains listed in critical condition in a Chattanooga hospital.
The Crossville City Council took no action to move forward on the repair of downtown sidewalks, but did express concern about getting Main Street paved. The City has postponed the TDOT surfacing project to allow repairs to be made to sidewalks and replacement of light poles, however, that project has been slow to move forward. City engineer Tim Begley reported that even if TDOT were notified today that they were ready to proceed, it would likely be this time next year before they would get started. The Crossville City Council moved further discussion on sidewalks, lights and paving to a work session.
