Watch Out for Deer
Thursday November 2, 2017

The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) cautions motorists to watch out for deer on or near the roadways. An increase in deer related crashes is more likely during November-December due to deer mating and hunting season.
Stats show November is typically the worst month for deer-related crashes. It is important for motorists to exercise caution, slow down and remain alert in areas where deer are present.
In Tennessee from 2012 and 2016, 6.4 percent of deer related crashes occurred on state highways. In 2016, there were 7,219 deer related crashes including 330 that involved injuries and one that was fatal. As of October 31, 2017, there have been 4,223 deer involved traffic crashes across the state.
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security and the Tennessee Highway Patrol suggest that when you see deer cross the road, expect more to follow. Many times, the second or third deer crossing becomes the one that motorists hit; Be attentive and drive defensively constantly scanning the roadside, especially at dawn and dusk; When you spot a deer, slow down immediately. Proceed slowly when passing;
Tennessee law allows deer killed in a collision to be taken and used as food, as long as you contact the nearest Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) regional office and report the accident within 48 hours.

Time Changes Sunday
Thursday November 2, 2017

Get ready for an extra hour of sleep this weekend as Daylight Saving Time officially comes to an end.
On Sunday, Nov. 5, Daylight Saving Time for 2017 comes to an end at precisely 2 a.m.
Standard Time will return and stick around until 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, 2018.
The annual change comes in the middle of the night, but most people usually set their clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night.
Changing the clocks is always a good time to sync changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Fire safety officials recommend changing those batteries at least once a year and replacing the detectors every 10 years, even if they're hard-wired.

 


Guns To Be Allowed at New Legislative Complex
AP Thursday November 2, 2017

People with state-issued handgun carry permits will be allowed to be armed within Tennessee's new legislative office complex.
Lawmakers and staff are beginning their move into the renovated Cordell Hull office building near the state Capitol this week. The facility is scheduled to open to the public this month.
House Speaker Beth Harwell and Senate Speaker Randy McNally announced Wednesday that people who wish to keep their guns on them inside the building will be required to present their permits at security checkpoints.
Earlier efforts to allow handguns within the old Legislative Plaza complex were thwarted because Gov. Bill Haslam's administration said it had oversight over the building and did not want to go along with the change.
