Lawmaker Calls for Ban on Fraternities and Sororities
AP Thursday February 1, 2018

A Tennessee lawmaker has filed a bill calling for a ban on sororities and fraternities at state colleges and universities.
The bill was filed by Rep. John DeBerry Tuesday. HB 2042 would only affect Greek organizations that are "social" in nature, rather than professional organizations.
The proposal comes as Greek life groups across the country have been suspended or placed on probation for instances of excessive drinking and hazing.
In 2016, there were four fraternity hazing deaths across the country that garnered national attention.
Those cases are from Louisiana State University, Florida State University, Texas State University and Pennsylvania State University.

 


Lawsuits accuse guardrail manufacturer of negligence
AP Thursday February 1, 2018

Two lawsuits accuse a guardrail manufacturer of design flaws that led to one woman's death and another's permanent disfigurement.
The lawsuits filed Wednesday in South Carolina and Tennessee accuse the Lindsay Corporation of negligence in the design of X-LITE guardrails. The suit says that instead of collapsing to absorb impact when vehicles hit them, the guardrails pierced through vehicles, killing one woman and injuring another so severely she had to have a leg amputated.
Scrutiny of the guardrails has prompted Tennessee and other states to remove them from their roadways, but South Carolina transportation officials said they would leave the rails in place until they are damaged or outlive their lifespan.
X-LITE has said its guardrails meet federal guidelines and that no system can stop every fatality or injury.

Burn permits will not be issued today, Wed., Jan. 31, 2018 across much of the state including counties in Middle Tennessee, the Cumberland Plateau, and parts of East and West Tennessee. A forecast for strong winds and the low relative humidity increase the risk for a controlled debris burn to become a wildfire. Rain will return to the area on Thursday, with a mix of rain and light snow possible in the Upper Cumberland Thursday evening. A burn permit is required by law for outdoor debris burning from October 15 through May 15 and is only issued when conditions are conducive to safe burning. The permit is free. If you live inside city limits, there may be additional restrictions. Check with your municipality before you burn.
