Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance Announces "Close the Door" Campaign

Nashville, Tenn. – “Close the Door!” That is what Gary West, State Fire Marshal, is telling Tennesseans in an effort to save more lives if a fire should occur.

 

“A door is one of the best pieces of firefighting and lifesaving equipment,” said Gary West.  “If you leave a room that is on fire, simply closing the door behind you can be the best decision you make.”

 

Closing the door reduces fire growth and spread, limits damage to your home and could possibly save lives.  A closed door can not only hinder flames and smoke from spreading to other rooms it also helps deprive a fire of oxygen, smoldering the fire.  It is a good idea to sleep with your bedroom door closed as well.  The act of closing the door can provide time for you and your loved ones to escape and help control the fire.

 

For more information on the “Close the Door” campaign, contact the State Fire Marshal’s Office at

Culleoka Man Arrested on Kidnapping Charge

NASHVILLE – Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation served an arrest warrant on a Culleoka man today, charging him with the Aggravated Kidnapping and Aggravated Assault of his former girlfriend.

 

On the morning of October 14th, at the request of 17th District Attorney General Robert Carter and the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, TBI agents began investigating a report of a kidnapping at 1009 Mill Town Road in Lewisburg, TN. During the course of the investigation, agents determined that Paul Brent Baxter went to that address and abducted his former girlfriend, 35-year old Emma Christina Rowe, at knife point. The victim had an active order of protection preventing Baxter, 44, from contacting her.  Baxter also assaulted the homeowner, James Griggs. Later in the day, agents learned that Baxter was at an apartment at 609 Landers Street in Shelbyville, Tennessee and that he was possibly holding Emma Rowe there.

 

This afternoon, TBI agents, working alongside deputies from the Bedford County and Marshall County Sheriff’s Departments, arrested Baxter at that apartment complex without incident and charged him with Aggravated Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault, Domestic Assault and Vandalism. Emma Rowe was transported from the apartment to a Shelbyville hospital for medical treatment. Baxter was booked in the Marshall County Jail where he is being held without bond.

 
State of TN September Revenues

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Finance and Administration Commissioner Larry Martin today reported that overall state revenues in September were $1.2 billion, which is 7.38% above the same month a year ago.  

“The growth in state tax collections was driven by strong sales tax growth reflecting improved consumer confidence and better than expected corporate collections,” Martin said.  “While our total revenue situation shows some improvement, we continue to be cautious about corporate revenue due to its historical volatility. Consequently, we will maintain our careful monitoring of spending throughout state government.”                                   

On an accrual basis, September is the second month in the 2014-2015 fiscal year. 

Year-to-date collections for two months were $86.3 million more than the budgeted estimate. The general fund was over collected by $80.8 million and the four other funds were over collected by $5.5 million. 

The budgeted revenue estimates for 2014-2015 are based on the State Funding Board’s consensus recommendation of December 17, 2013 and adopted by the second session of the 108th General Assembly in April 2014. They are available at http://www.tn.gov/finance/bud/Revenues.shtml.

 
TBI CASE LEADS TO INDICTMENTS FOR MURFREESBORO MAN ACCUSED OF POINTING SHOTGUN AT DEPUTIES

NASHVILLE – Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a Rutherford County man accused of pointing a weapon at two Sheriff’s deputies. 

At the request of then-16th District Attorney General Bill Whitesell, TBI Special Agents began investigating the May 6th officer-involved shooting of Jeffery T. Newton. Earlier that day, Newton’s wife placed a 911 call, stating her husband had a gun and threatened to take his life in the woods behind their Murfreesboro home. While two responding Rutherford County deputies were looking for Newton, he emerged from the woods carrying a shotgun. Deputies ordered Newton to put down the weapon, but he did not comply, and instead pointed the weapon at deputies. One of the deputies fired his service weapon, hitting Newton in the abdomen. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. 

On August 6th, the Rutherford County Grand Jury returned indictments for the 39-year-old, charging him with two counts of Aggravated Assault. Last night, following his release from the hospital, Newton was booked into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center, where at the time of this release, he was being held on $50,000 bond.

American Red Cross Encourages Donors To Make Blood Donation A Lifelong Habit

Leaders Save Lives Program gives students chance to win college scholarship 

 The American Red Cross reminds eligible donors that it’s never too late – or too early – to make blood donation a lifelong habit. 

Many blood donors report making their first blood donation while in high school. High school and college students account for about 20 percent of all blood donations to the Red Cross. Individuals can begin donating at 17 years old, or 16 in some states, and continue to donate as long as they meet eligibility requirements. 

Blood donations often decline during the winter holidays when school is not in session. The Red Cross is offering 16- to 24-year-old students currently enrolled in school a way to help overcome this seasonal decline and have a chance to win a college scholarship. Students who sponsor a successful blood drive between Dec. 15, 2014, and Jan. 15, 2015, through the Leaders Save Lives program will be entered to win a college scholarship and will receive a gift card. More information is available at redcrossblood.org/leaderssavelives. 

Donors are needed year-round, particularly those with types O negative, A negative and B negative blood. Those who attempt to donate in October will be entered to win a $5,000 Visa gift card, courtesy of Suburban Propane. 

To make an appointment to donate blood, eligible donors are encouraged to download the new Red Cross Blood Donor App from app stores or text BLOODAPP to 90999 to receive a download link, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
