Former Overton County Volunteer Fire Chief Indicted on Theft Charge

A former chief of an Overton County volunteer fire department has been indicted on a theft charge. Former Hardys Chapel Fire Chief Terry Lee Priest was charged with one count of theft over $10,000 following an investigation by the TBI and the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury. In May 2014, the TBI began investigating a complaint of funds missing from the financial account of the Hardys Chapel Volunteer Fire Department in Cookeville. An audit of the department’s finances by the Comptroller’s office found a cash shortage of at least $37,496.11 from January 1, 2013, through May 31, 2014. Earlier this month, the Overton County Grand Jury returned an indictment against Priest who was arrested Thursday at his residence in Sparta and transported to the Overton County Jail, where he was booked on a $40,000 bond.

Tennessee 1 of 7 States Getting No Child Left Behind Wiaver
Peg Broadcasting News Friday July 24, 2015

The U.S. Department of Education has approved Tennessee’s waiver request from certain provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act. Critics have complained there is too much testing and the law is too punitive for schools deemed to be failing. Seven other states were given the waiver approval Thursday, but Tennessee is the only one receiving an additional four years of flexibility. “With the state’s current waiver set to expire this summer and no final action on federal ESEA reauthorization, the waiver renewal is crucial to Tennessee’s ability to establish and implement a state-specific accountability system and avoid the rigid Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) model established by NCLB”, the State Department said.
