The identity has not been confirmed, but is believed to be that of Benjamin Heino.

Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday January 24, 2018

The Cookeville Police Department is reminding all gun enthusiasts to employ firearm safety at all times. This comes after a man was accidently shot on Tuesday. Around 3 p.m. officers responded to the report of a shooting victim on West Jackson Street. Police say that three men had been target practicing at a residence on Apple Valley Court. One of the men thought he had unloaded a .22 caliber rifle before returning to the home. While the men were walking back to the residence the weapon discharged striking one of the men in the back. As the victim was being transported to the Cookeville Hospital by private vehicle his condition deteriorated. The men stopped on West Jackson Street and called the Putnam County Ambulance service. The victim was ultimately transported to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center by air ambulance for treatment and is expected to make a full recovery. Although this investigation is ongoing, the incident is being treated as an accidental shooting and no charges are expected at this time. Cookeville Police want to emphasize the importance of treating all firearms as if they are loaded and to remember that muzzle control should always be maintained when handling a firearm.

 


School Board To Consider Changes To Lice Policy
Crossville Chronicle/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday January 24, 2018

The Cumberland County Board of Education may soon change the lice policy. According to the Crossville Chronicle, current policy keeps students at home if lice, nymphs or nits are found. These children must stay out of school until they are totally lice free. To reduce absenteeism, the Board may consider only sending kids home if live lice are found. Those with nymphs or nits would be able to return to school since lice is considered a nuisance and not a health hazard. The BOE Monthly Meeting is Thursday, January 25 at 6 p.m. and is open to the public.
