All 400 permits for Tennessee's second sandhill crane hunt are gone. They were issued at a hand-held drawing held Saturday in north Hamilton County. As a result, there are no leftover permits to issue this week at Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency regional offices. All persons issued a sandhill crane permit must pass an internet-based crane identification test to make sure hunters know the difference between sandhill cranes and protected species. The hunting season operates in a designated area in East Tennessee on Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 and Nov. 29 through Jan. 1.

Tennessee death row inmate dies of natural causes
AP/WATE Monday October 20, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee officials say a death row inmate convicted of a 1988 murder in Campbell County has died of natural causes. Department of Correction spokeswoman Neysa E. Taylor says Olen E. Hutchison, 61, was pronounced dead at 8:55 a.m. Sunday at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Nashville. Hutchison was convicted in 1991 in the drowning death of Hugh L. Huddleston, 46, of Knoxville. Huddleston was lured to Norris Lake under the guise of going fishing. Hutchison's case became the focus of demonstrations and forums on disparities in the state's death sentences. Hutchinson was one of seven men accused of plotting to kill Huddleston in an insurance fraud scheme. Hutchison was the only person sentenced to death. The man convicted of pushing Huddleston into the lake received a life sentence.
