UCDD Trial Date Reset
Friday October 31, 2014

The trial date for the former executive director and deputy director of the Upper Cumberland Development District has been delayed once again in U.S. District Court.
The case against Wendy Askins and Larry Webb had been scheduled for trial on December 2nd. It has now been reset for July 14th, 2015.
Defense attorneys filed a motion for the delay saying they needed more time to prepare and they cited their busy schedule with other cases.
Askins and Webb were indicted in 2013 following an investigation into alleged wrongdoing in connection with the Living the Dream home in Putnam County. They are charged with theft, bank fraud and money laundering.

 


Bobcat Incident Suspect Caught
Friday October 31, 2014

A male student at Coffee County High School has been summoned to juvenile court for killing a bobcat out of season. That's according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. The dead bobcat was found hanging by a rope from the goalpost at the Tullahoma High School practice field earlier this week. School officials believe it was a case of someone taking a football rivalry too far. The Tullahoma Wildcats will play Coffee County Friday night in a rivalry that dates back many years.
TWRA officials say the student who killed the bobcat did not hang the animal from the goalpost. Police and school officials are still investigating the incident.

Officials say the early warning of a smoke alarm can double the chances of survival by increasing the amount of time a person has to escape a fire in your home.
Seventy percent of the fire fatalities in Tennessee last year occurred in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
