AP Tuesday October 17, 2017

Former Gov. Phil Bredesen, the last Democrat to win a statewide race in Tennessee, is considering a bid to succeed retiring Republican Bob Corker in the U.S. Senate.
Bredesen said in a statement to The Associated Press on Monday that he is mulling an entry into the race after several people urged him to reconsider his initial statements that he had no interest in running.
Bredesen is a former Nashville mayor who was first elected governor in 2002. He completed his second term in early 2011.
Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn has joined the race on an anti-establishment platform. Former Rep. Stephen Fincher is also considering a Republican bid.
Nashville attorney James Mackler is the only Democrat actively campaigning, though Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke is also considering a bid.

Grundy Students Appear in Court
Tuesday October 17, 2017

Five Grundy County High School students appeared in court Monday after being charged with attempted aggravated rape. The charges stemmed from an alleged sexual assault of a freshman teammate last Wednesday morning.
Authorities say the students will remain under house arrest until their next court date, which will be November 15th.
The judge also recused himself because he has represented some of the parents in a private case.
In the press conference, the Assistant District Attorney said it is too early to tell of the students will be charged as adults.

 


Gas Prices
Tuesday October 17, 2017

Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.31 per gallon on Sunday, after dropping 8 cents during the past week. The state average has declined for 35 consecutive days, falling a total of 28 cents during that time. Although Tennessee gas prices are 27 cents less than a month ago, the state average remains 19 cents higher than this time last year.
AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said retail prices are still inflated by a little more than 10 cents because of the recent hurricanes. So motorists should expect another round of discounts this week.
The national average price of a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.47, a drop of four cents from last week.
