Tennessee State Treasurer Returns Purple Heart
TN Dept. of Treasury/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday January 18, 2018

Tennessee State Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr. will be in Chattanooga on Friday, January 19th, 2018, to present Mr. Charles Parris and his brother Freddie Parris with their grandfather's Purple Heart. The Purple Heart was one of two military decorations earned by Claude Parris for his service in World War II. Grandson Charles Parris had stored the medal in a safe-deposit box in a Chattanooga bank. The box had unfortunately become abandoned, but thanks to a Tennessee law protecting all military decorations, the bank turned it over to Treasury's Division of Unclaimed Property. This Friday, Charles and his brother Freddie will once again have this memento of their grandfather's bravery and sacrifice.

 


Poultry Owners Urged to Help Prevent Outbreak of Avian Influenza
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday January 18, 2018

When the temperature drops, the risk of avian influenza rises. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture is advising poultry owners to take precautions to safeguard their flocks. Avian influenza has not been detected in any domesticated poultry in Tennessee in 2018. However, in March 2017, strains of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) sickened three commercial chicken breeder flocks in the state. Avian influenza circulates naturally among the wild bird population and can be deadly to domesticated poultry. Poultry owners are strongly urged to practice good biosecurity. Watch for signs of illness and report any unusual deaths to the state veterinarian's office at 615-837-5120.

tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday January 18, 2018

Education Commissioner Candice McQueen has announced that 74.7 percent of the state's high school class of 2018 - nearly 52,000 students - participated in the department's second ACT Senior Retake Day in October 2017. This number is double the number of seniors who chose to participate in the first ACT Senior Retake Day the previous fall. Of those seniors who retook the ACT in October, about 40 percent - or almost 19,000 - increased their overall score, and 2,333 seniors raised their composite to a 21 or higher, making them eligible for HOPE Scholarship funds that provide up to $16,000 to help students pay for college in Tennessee, as well as potentially additional grant support.
