Cumberland County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man at Cumberland Medical Center after they were informed that they had a patient in the ER wearing a monitoring device on his ankle. 43 year old James Dillehay originally told deputies that he had entered the ER because he had chest pains while driving from Mt Pleasant on his way to South Carolina. Deputies stated that he had an odor of alcohol on his breath. Dillehay stated that he thought he might have warrants out for his arrest in Maury County. He then stated that the vehicle he arrived in was actually stolen out of Mt Pleasant. A check confirmed all of his statements. He was arrested and transported to the Cumberland County Justice Center for booking.
When Tennesseans spring forward into daylight savings time next month, they would never fall back into standard time again if a proposed bill passes in the state legislature. Under the bill, sponsored by Rep. Curry Todd, Tennessee would drop out of the ritual of moving clocks forward one hour each year in March and then back again in November. If the bill passes, the change in Tennessee would take effect this coming July. East Tennessee would remain one hour ahead of the rest of the state. Arizona, Hawaii and Indiana have successfully adopted a uniform time system with no changes by season.
State officials say applications are now available for communities seeking to become certified as adventure tourism districts. The certification allows certain tourism-related businesses within adventure tourism districts to qualify for a jobs tax credit. The certification was created by the Tennessee Adventure Tourism and Rural Development Act of 2011. Officials say outdoor recreation generates $8.2 billion annually in direct consumer spending in Tennessee, while sustaining 83,000 jobs.
