FIVE MORE COUNTIES QUARANTINED FOR EMERALD ASH BORER

NASHVILLE – A quarantine for Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an invasive insect that destroys ash trees, has been expanded to include five more Tennessee counties.

With EAB discovered in traps in Franklin, Marshall, Rutherford, Trousdale and Williamson counties, those areas are now under restriction for the movement of ash trees and ash tree products. EAB was confirmed in Cumberland and Bledsoe counties in June. Tennessee now has 46 counties under state and federal EAB quarantine.

 

EAB is a destructive forest pest that made its way from Asia to the United States in the 1990s. This pest was first detected in Tennessee in 2010. Typically, EAB can kill an ash tree within three years. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture and USDA-APHIS are working together to identify infestation using purple box traps placed in ash trees across the state.

The EAB quarantine prohibits the movement of firewood, ash nursery stock, ash timber and other material that can spread EAB. Citizens should report any symptomatic ash trees to the department of agriculture and follow these simple rules:

 

  • Don’t transport firewood.
  • Use firewood from local sources near where it will be burned.
  • If you purchase firewood, make sure that is labeled and certified to be pest free.
  • Watch for signs of infestation in your ash trees. 
    Visit www.tn.gov/agriculture/topic/ag-businesses-eab for a symptoms checklist and a map of quarantined counties.

 

TDA’s Division of Forestry estimates that there are 261 million ash trees on public and private timberland in Tennessee, potentially valued as high as $9 billion.

GOODWILL OFFERS BACK-TO-SCHOOL SAVINGS

(LEWISBURG, Tenn.) — Marshall County parents don’t have to wait for the state’s tax-free weekend to save money on back-to-school apparel for students. School starts in Marshall County on Wednesday, Aug. 5.

 

“Every weekend — and weekday for that matter — is tax-free when you shop for clothes and shoes at Goodwill,” said retail District Manager Jennifer Martin, referring to a statewide tax exemption on the sale of used garments.

 

Moreover, Goodwill’s low prices mean parents can purchase three or more outfits for what they might spend on one elsewhere, she said.

 

The not-for-profit’s 35 retail stores in Middle and West Tennessee, including the one in Lewisburg, are stocked with many of the items students need to meet standard attire requirements, such as collared or Polo-style shirts in many shades like navy and white, and skirts and slacks in khaki, black and other colors.

 

The regular price for children’s clothing in sizes 2T to 6X is $2.49 per piece, while clothing for older students’ sizes 7-16 is $3.49 per item.

 

The stores also offer belts, ties and backpacks and other gear for students. Many items such as these will be sold tax-free at Goodwill during the state’s Sales Tax Holiday, Aug. 7-9.

 

Goodwill’s daily and monthly sales can greatly compound customers’ savings. Everything in Goodwill’s stores (excluding drinks) will be half price Saturday, Aug. 1, during our monthly storewide first-Saturday sale. These other specials also can help parents and students save:

 

●        Every day: 50 percent off the Color of the Week.

●        Every Wednesday and Sunday: 99 cents for Color of the Week clothing

●        Every Monday, $5 off any purchase of $25 or more.

●        Shoppers can save even more by signing up for a Goodwill Rewards card and by following Goodwill on Facebook for notification of other special offers.

 

College students also can find clothing, furniture and electronics at Goodwill to suit their needs, Martin said. She added that, in August, Goodwill stores will begin stocking the fall and winter clothing — including sweaters, jackets and coats — which will benefit students of all ages.

 

Goodwill stores are open 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Sunday

“Get Alarmed Tennessee” Smoke Alarm Program Has Now Saved More Than 100

Begun in 2012, the Smoke Alarm Program Has Helped Improve State’s Fire Safety

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) announces that smoke alarms installed as part of the “Get Alarmed Tennessee” program have now contributed to helping save over 100 lives since the program’s inception in 2012.

The “Get Alarmed” program’s success will be featured next week as part of presentations given by the SFMO during the National Association of State Fire Marshals annual conference in Nashville. The annual event will be held in the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in downtown Nashville.

Since its inception, SFMO and Tennessee fire service partners have distributed more than 81,000 smoke alarms for free across Tennessee in high-risk areas. Figures have recently confirmed the 101st saved life. The installation program along with fire prevention education, fewer fires and other factors helped play a role in reducing Tennessee’s fire mortality rate in 2014.

“By comparing where ‘Get Alarmed’ smoke alarms were installed against fire incident reports, we can track the program’s success and effectiveness,” said Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance Deputy Commissioner Gary West. “’Get Alarmed Tennessee’ perfectly fits our mission to reduce fire deaths. Going forward, we will continue to focus our resources and help save more lives and protect more property.”

The National Association of State Fire Marshals conference kicks off at 9 a.m. Monday.

TBI ARRESTS, CHARGES FORMER DCS CASEWORKER WITH SEXUAL BATTERY

NASHVILLE – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have arrested and charged a now former caseworker from the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services accused of unlawful sexual contact with a woman at a home he was visiting this week as part of his routine work.

Earlier this week, at the request of 16th District Attorney General Jennings Jones, TBI Agents began investigating Eulice Handy. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that while on duty Tuesday as a DCS caseworker, Handy visited a residence in La Vergne to conduct an assessment of the living conditions. Investigators further determined Handy made contact with an adult female at the home, with whom he had sexual contact without her consent. Handy is no longer employed by the Department of Children’s Services.

Today, a TBI Agent arrested the 42-year-old Nashville man and charged him with one count of Sexual Battery. Authorities subsequently booked Handy into the Rutherford County Jail, where at the time of this release, he was being held on $25,000 bond.
