Crossville City Council backs out of shooting park
Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday March 22, 2017

The Crossville City Council voted 3-2 to approve a resolution that rescinds a contract to sell city property to Crossville Shooting Sports Park, Incorporated. Mayor Pro-tem JH Graham requested the resolution and noted a section in the contract that would allow the City an out if there was public objection. About 6 households and several property owners from the Albert Frye Road area began speaking out about the proposed park earlier in March after a contract had been signed. Council members Danny Wyatt, Pamala Harris and Mayor Pro-tem Graham voted in favor of rescinding, while Mayor Mayberry and councilmember Scot Shanks voted against. Mayberry added that too much effort had already been put forth by city employees just to toss it away at the last minute. The proposed shooting park first appeared on the council agenda in June of 2015.

 


Tennessee bill sponsor: Medical marijuana dead this session
AP Wednesday March 22, 2017

A Tennessee lawmaker says his bill that would legalize medical marijuana is dead for this year's legislative session.

Republican Rep. Jeremy Faison says there's currently not enough support in the Senate for the change.

Faison's bill would have let people use prescribed marijuana to treat a variety of ailments, from cancer to post-traumatic stress disorder.

It also would have allowed 50 grow operations in Tennessee, with the first 15 in distressed areas.

On Tuesday, the Cosby lawmaker helped kill a separate resolution that he says would've pigeonholed Tennessee into waiting for additional U.S. Food and Drug Administration action.

Faison said some lawmakers feared their constituents would vote against them for supporting medical marijuana. He contended there will be a greater consequence for opponents because of positive polling for medical marijuana.

The University of Tennessee will show the country their volunteer spirit as they attempt to break the Guinness World Record for largest human letter.

The schoolwide event will invite over 4,000 students, faculty, staff, and alumni to Neyland Stadium on March 29 to form the world's largest human Power T.

Chancellor Beverly Davenport hopes to use the event to bring the university together.

She said, " Standing together in Neyland Stadium with 4,000 members of our Volunteer family will be a shared memory that will last a lifetime."

The current record is held by Queen's University in Canada with 3,373 people.

The event is restricted to only Univeristy of Tennessee students, faculty, staff, and alumni. There will be no public access.

The event will be aired live on NBC's Today Show on March 29 as weatherman Al Roker does his live weather updates.

UT will be Roker's third stop on his nationwide college visits that week after UT's publication The Daily Beacon entered a video contest to bring Roker to college campuses for Rokerthon.
