Tennessee state park outsourcing push draws no bidders
AP Friday May 12, 2017

A push by Gov. Bill Haslam's administration to outsource hospitality services at a Tennessee state park has drawn no bidders.

Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation spokeswoman Kim Schofinski tells The Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/2r5WzL9 ) that no one bid on the proposal at Fall Creek Falls State Park, located on the Upper Cumberland Plateau in Van Buren and Bledsoe counties.

TDEC planned to award the winning bidder $20 million to raze the park's inn and build a new one. The Tennessee State Employees Association and park workers opposed it.

In 2015, similar outsourcing plans at 11 state parks likewise yielded no interest from private vendors.

The administration pointed at the shoddy shape of state park facilities, and put $55 million in capital improvements into the parks in 2015.

 


Tennessee murder charges raise questions over bounty hunters
AP Friday May 12, 2017

The case of seven bounty hunters in Tennessee charged with murder is raising questions about how much power they have and how regulates them.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says that at least 21 states require that bounty hunters be licensed. Tennessee, however, is not one of them.

The seven bounty hunters are facing multiple charges for the violence that left a 24-year-old man dead and another wounded, including first-degree murder and kidnapping.

Court documents say they were looking for someone else when the bounty hunters surrounded a Nissan sedan parked in a Clarksville Wal-Mart parking and blocked it in with their vehicles. They say the bounty hunters opened fire on four men in the car and then chased their vehicle for nearly seven miles.
