IF YOU HAVE BRUSH TO BURN, DONT FORGET THE PERMIT
Submitted: TN Dept. of Agriculture Friday March 27, 2015

The recent winter storms were hard on Tennessees landscape. Heavy ice brought down limbs and trees across the state. Brush pile burning is one of the best ways for landowners to clean up woody debris from the storms. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is reminding citizens that outdoor burning requires a permit through May 15. If you are burning a leaf or brush pile that is smaller than 8 feet by 8 feet in size, log on to burnsafetn.org to secure a permit. For a larger burn, apply for a permit by calling your local Division of Forestry burn permit phone number Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Phone numbers can be found by visiting burnsafetn.org. Burn permits are free. Residents should check with their city and county government for any local restrictions. In 2014, debris fires that got out of control were the leading cause of wildfires in Tennessee, burning 5,366 acres statewide. Burning debris without a permit is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine and jail time.

 


Board of Education approves extending school day
Peg Broadcasting News Friday March 27, 2015

The Cumberland County Board of Education in regular session Thursday night voted 5-4 to approve an option that will extend the school day by one hour for a total of 13 days in order to make up 2 snow days. In all, Cumberland County students missed 17 days for the year. 10 of those were built into the calendar, 2 were made up by converting staff development days to instructional days and 3 were waived by the State, leaving 2 days to be made up. Several options were before the Board, including an option to add the days to the end of the calendar, however, a motion to approve that option was voted down, with most board members concerned about instruction time prior to the TCAP testing. Board members later approved a second motion to extend the school day by one hour starting April 13th. The additional hour will be in effect through April 29th.
