Crossville Chronicle/Steven Craig Wednesday December 20, 2017

Cumberland County along with 22 other communities has been designated as a Healthier Tennessee Community, the Crossville Chronicle reports. Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Governor's Foundation for Health and Wellness CEO Richard Johnson have honored these counties for their successful work to improve the health of their citizens. The Healthier Tennessee Communities initiative attempts to improve Tennesseans' health by engaging citizens and local leaders in cities, towns, counties, neighborhoods and college campuses across the state. To be designated, the communities established wellness councils and developed sustainable community-wide events and activities that support physical activity, healthy eating and tobacco abstinence.

College Dropout Rates High in Tennessee
AP Wednesday December 20, 2017

A report by an education advocacy group has found that enrollment and retention have increased at Tennessee community colleges, but dropout rates remain alarmingly high, especially among poor and minority students. The Tennessean reports Complete Tennessee released the report Wednesday. The "Beneath the Surface: State of Higher Education in Tennessee" report indicates a 25 decrease in adult enrollment since 2011, among other findings. The report also highlights practices from around the country that Tennessee colleges can look toward. Complete Tennessee executive director Kenyatta Lovett says schools can begin to make students' education more hands-on, especially through internships. Gov. Bill Haslam has said his priorities and budget in 2018 will put a spotlight on low graduation rates.

 


Immigrant Tuition Break Not Up to Colleges
AP Wednesday December 20, 2017

The state attorney general says Tennessee's public colleges and universities can't be left to decide whether to offer in-state tuition breaks for students whose parents brought or kept them in the country illegally. Attorney General Herbert Slatery's opinion says state lawmakers would have to pass a bill explicitly making those immigrants eligible. The opinion addresses state legislation proposing that the boards of individual schools determine eligibility for in-state tuition. The opinion says the bill doesn't expressly mention "unlawful aliens" and wouldn't leave the decision to legislators, and federal law requires both. The proposal to let individual institutions make in-state tuition decisions failed earlier this year, as did a bill to grant those students in-state tuition across all public colleges and universities. Both bills will likely be considered again in 2018.

If the shoe fits...
Rylee Garrett Wednesday December 20, 2017

You've heard the old saying "If the shoe fits, wear it", well recently a man took the idiom literally at the Crossville Walmart when he put his old boots into a shoe box and walked out of the store in a brand new pair without paying for them. According to Police reports, the suspect was a slim man who appeared to be in his late 40's to early 50's. He left the store in a Honda Odyssey and Police had not identified him at the time of the report. Just let that be a cautionary tale as you do your last minute holiday shopping; always check the box before making your purchase to avoid an unpleasant surprise on Christmas morning.
