Overdoses Rise in Tennessee
AP Wednesday October 18, 2017

Tennesseans have surrendered nearly 43 tons of pills and pill waste over the last year, a rise in volume even as the death toll from drug overdoses continues to climb.
The Tennessean reports that U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration collection events over two days this past year collected more than 35,489 pounds, while the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation reports that permanent drop-off sites around the state collected an additional 52,164 pounds between September 2016 and August 2017.
At least 1,631 Tennesseans died from drug overdoses in 2016.
Tennessee Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Task Force director Tommy Farmer says he's surprised and heartened that the volume of surrendered pill waste hasn't dwindled.
Farmer says collecting unused pills and reducing prescriptions enables law enforcement to focus on street drugs.

 


Grundy's Football Season to Continue
Wednesday October 18, 2017

The Grundy County school board voted 6-2 Monday to allow Grundy County High School's football season to continue. A senior, three juniors and a freshman are accused of attempting to rape a 15-year-old freshman boy with the metal handle of a dust mop in the school's field house early last Wednesday.
School district attorney Chuck Cagle said head coach Casey Tate and his brief replacement, Greg Brewer, were both relieved of coaching duties. Nick Meeks, who coaches the 7th and 8th grade team at Grundy County, was chosen as interim head coach for the final two games.
Cagle said suspending the football season would preclude the men's basketball team from tournament play.
The students, ages 15 to 17, are on house arrest.
