January 24 to be known as Zaevion Dobson Day in Knox County


January 24 to be known as Zaevion Dobson Day in Knox County
WVLT Monday January 25, 2016

The Knox County Commission passed a resolution to honor Zaevion Dobson throughout the county.

Under the new resolution, January 24 will be known as "Zaevion Dobson Day." The date was picked because Zaevion wore the number 24 on his football jersey at Fulton High School.

Zaevion received national attention for his final moments of heroism. According to Knoxville Police, the 15-year-old threw himself on his friends to protect them from gun fire. Police say the shooting was an act of gun violence and Zaevion and his friends were picked at random.

President Barack Obama mentioned Zaevion during a national address on gun control. Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero called Zaevion a success story.

Transportation Study
AP Friday January 22, 2016

A new study finds that traffic congestion and road deficiencies in Tennessee cost motorists in the state $5.6 billion a year.

The Washington-based transportation research group Trip conducted the study that calls for boosting investment in Tennessee roads, bridges and transit.

The report finds that the increasing congestion means drivers waste more time and fuel each year.

According to the study, 40 percent of major urban roads in the state are either in poor, mediocre or fair condition, and that one out of every five bridges are structurally deficient or obsolete.
