Operation Blackout
WSMV Monday October 23, 2017

Sex offenders in Middle Tennessee can expect a knock on their door over the next several days as officers begin Operation Blackout. The goal of this sweep is to make sure sex offenders are not participating in any Halloween events.
People convicted of sex crimes have all signed a set of fall rules that prohibits them from participating in trick-or-treating. Sex offenders are not allowed to have their porch lights on, open their doors to anyone except law enforcement, to have fall decorations, wear costumes or attend fall festivals or parties.
During the statewide sweep last year, corrections officers checked on 3,000 sex offenders and found 400 violations.

No Changes at West or Bobby Ray Schools
Jay Walker Friday October 20, 2017

In a special called meeting Thursday the Warren County School Board voted unanimously to keep the grade structure at West Elementary and Bobby Ray Elementary Schools as they currently are.
There had been discussion of making West a K-2 and Bobby Ray a 3-5. But after discussing the pros and cons of such a move and after hearing from the principals of the schools, it was decided it would be best to keep the schools as they are.
Bobby Ray Principal Monti Hillis and West Principal Michelle Lewis both agreed that changing the grade structure would not be in the best interest of the students at either school. School Board members agreed with them and said their research has not produced any evidence that would indicate the change would be advantageous for the school system.
