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.

CCHS Teacher Awarded SCORE Tennessee Educator Fellowship
SCORE/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday May 11, 2017

A Cumberland County High School teacher has been awarded a Tennessee Educator Fellowship for the class of 2017-2018. Kimberly Herring, who teaches grades 10-12 mathematics at CCHS, is among 50 educators statewide who were selected by the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE). Herring has been teaching for 27 years.

The Tennessee Educator Fellowship is a yearlong program that equips educators to advocate for their students and their profession as they continue teaching. Entering its fourth year, the fellowship now accepts not only teachers but also school counselors and librarians. Since 2014, the fellowship has helped nearly 100 teachers to contribute to the discussion about education policy by appearing at public speaking engagements, inviting policymakers into their classrooms, writing about their education experience in state and national publications, creating regional professional networks, and serving on state-level policy committees.

Sarah Johnson, who teaches grades 10-12 science at Roane County High School was also named to the Fellowship. Johnson has been teaching for five years.

The new fellows will meet as a group for the first time in July. Throughout the upcoming year, the educator fellows will learn through in-person and online seminars and will serve as liaisons between their colleagues, their communities, and policymakers as Tennessee continues the work of improving educational outcomes for all students.
