AP Wednesday July 19, 2017

Republican state Sen. Mae Beavers has raised short of $37,000 in her bid for Tennessee governor.
The Mt. Juliet lawmaker filed her campaign finance report Monday. It also includes $20,000 transferred from her Senate campaign account. Beavers has about $55,400 cash on hand through June. She joined the race last month.
The senator known for pushing socially conservative policies came well short of other candidates' fundraising totals.
The top haul came from Republican Randy Boyd. He says he has raised $2.3 million, added $2 million of his own money in his bid for governor and has $3.5 million cash left.

 


Heat Wave
Wednesday July 19, 2017

The first significant heat wave of the summer arrives late this week and continues over the weekend.
Not only will the afternoons become hotter, the nights will become increasingly warm and muggy too. Overnight temperatures are expected to fall no lower than the middle 70s.
High temperatures in the mid 90s will become common and maximum afternoon heat index values will creep into the 100 to 105 degree range.
This will be some of the hottest weather of the summer so far, and hot weather safety will become increasingly important.
Forecasters share some hot weather safety rules.
*Never ever leave a child or animal in a hot car-not even for a minute. Dozens of infants and untold numbers of pets die every year in hot vehicles.
*Check on the elderly and ensure they are coping well with the heat.
*Slow down, and, take a break. Find a place to cool off, in a shaded spot or in an air conditioned building.
*Listen to your body, and know the warning signs of heat stress and heat stroke.
*Wear lightweight, loose fitting, and light colored clothing to reflect heat.

Federal Oversight of DCS Lifted
AP Wednesday July 19, 2017

After more than 16 years, the Tennessee Department of Children's Services is free of federal oversight from a 2001 settlement over its treatment of foster care children.
Gov. Bill Haslam announced Tuesday that a federal judge approved an agreement in the lawsuit filed in 2000 by the nonprofit Children's Rights.
Haslam's office said the state worked for years with a committee of nationally recognized child welfare experts serving as the federal court's monitor. He called Tuesday's news monumental.
In a news release, Children's Rights said the case involved more than 140 improvement requirements.
Some requirements included reasonable caseloads, sufficient training for case workers and quick response to abuse or neglect reports.
