Fourth District Upset Unlikely
AP Wednesday August 13, 2014
Although it is unclear exactly how many Republican provisional ballots remain uncounted in the 4th Congressional District primary, officials say the ballots counted so far make an upset look increasingly unlikely. Congressman Scott DesJarlais held a 35-vote lead over State Sen. Jim Tracy in unofficial results from last week's election. Tuesday, Marshall County election officials had counted 13 provisional ballots, but only three were for the Republican primary. Two were for DesLarlais and none for Tracy. In Rhea County, there was one ballot cast for Tracy, and in Franklin County there was one ballot cast for DesJarlais. At least five other counties have some provisional ballots remaining. The election results must be certified by August 25th.

Officials with the Monterey Police Department say they are hopeful that their new phone system will lead to more citizen tips-and ultimately more arrests. The new phone system prompts callers to dial 911 in an emergency or allows them to connect with the sheriff’s department. In addition, callers can leave messages for officers or offer crime tips. Officials say they have set up a Community Nuissance Eradication Team-or CNET, which will focus on following up on those tips. Before the new system, after hour callers to the department were transferred to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department. The Monterey Police Department can now be reached directly at 931-839-2323
