101.5 The One FM Police brought in a helicopter Monday to assist in the search for a burglary suspect in the Rock Church Road area. According to an alert sent out by the Dickson County Sheriff's Office, an Illinois man fled on foot after a homeowner caught him breaking into a residence on Home Place Road off Rock Church, east of Highway 48 between Dickson and Charlotte. A second suspect was apprehended in a vehicle in the area. Police are looking for 52-year-old Frank Moore. He is described as a white male, 5'9” tall, weighing 190 pounds. He has gray hair and was last seen wearing a brown, hooded sweatshirt. The report says Moore was caught in the act of committing an aggravated burglary by the homeowner and fled the area. Moore is reported to have an extensive criminal history in Illinois. Police searching the area stopped an SUV on Rock Church Road and arrested another Illinois man they believe is an accomplice. His name has not been released. A Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter was brought in to assist with the search but as of Monday night Moore had not been captured. Police advise anyone spotting Moore to not approach him but to call central dispatch immediately at 446-8041 extension 0 or dial 911.21.10.2014 at 09:15 amLike
101.5 The One FM The candidates for the 78th District seat in the Tennessee House of Representatives will answer questions in a forum on the Power Lunch program Wednesday on WDKN and The One FM. Republican incumbent Mary Littleton and Democratic nominee Jane Crisp have agreed to participate in the radio forum at 11:30 am. Littleton won her first term in 2012, topping six Cheatham County candidates in the GOP primary for the open seat, then beating White Bluff Mayor Linda Hayes in the general election. Hayes had beaten Crisp in the Democratic primary. Both candidates were unopposed in their respective primaries in August. A Dickson resident, Littleton has been active in the Republican Party for several years and was working in a field office for U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher before deciding to run for office when incumbent Phillip Johnson announced he would not seek re-election two years ago. An attorney who formerly worked for the Tennessee Department of Human Services, Crisp is the owner and operator of Chigger Ridge Bed and Breakfast in Pegram. Redrawn after the 2010 census, the 78th District includes all of Cheatham County and the eastern half of Dickson County. The forum will consist of questions asked to the candidates who will be given equal time to answer and then an additional opportunity to respond as well as opening and closing statements. The Power Lunch airs 11:30 am-12:30 pm on WDKN and The One FM and streams live at wdkn.com and 1015theone.com.21.10.2014 at 09:14 amLike
101.5 The One FM The Dickson County school system plans to use the $6 million the county is able to borrow to address security and safety upgrades, maintenance issues impacting the learning environment and increase energy efficiency. Director of Student Services Steve Sorrells presented a plan to the county commission Monday night that addresses issues within those three target areas as phases I and II of a facilities improvement plan. Sorrells said the $6 million will not address all of the school system's immediate needs, but school officials are working with C&I Design to identify priorities and ways to stretch the dollars to make the most impact. “As you are well aware, many of our facilities are aged but they're still very sound. The foundation is there, there's just some upkeep and some maintenance that needs to be addressed and looked at,” Sorrells said. The first priority Sorrells listed is proposed safety and security upgrades that include creating secure entrances, installing camera systems and more with an estimated price tag of $735,000. Sorrells said the second priority is addressing facility needs as they relate to improving the school environment. A major portion of that phase is repairs and upgrades to restrooms across the system. Under the third goal of improving energy efficiency, Sorrells said that includes major repairs to or replacement of heating and cooling systems at several campuses with the hope that the improved efficiency will create a savings for the system. “We understand and know that if we save a dollar or two off the electric bill, well that's a dollar or two that we can spend on buying textbooks. What we're really interested in would be finding that alternative revenue source that we could utilize in our own budget without having to come every so often to the county commission and leaning on you,” Sorrells said. Some of the itemized proposals presented Monday night include $400,000 for a new roof at Dickson County High School, $613,000 in restroom upgrades, $1.3 million for door and window replacements, $66,000 to repair a leak in the Creek Wood High School gym, $321,000 in HVAC repairs and $1.3 million to $2.4 million for replacing heating and cooling systems. Sorrells said the school system also is developing an ongoing plan to keep its buildings from falling behind on maintenance issues. “The needs that we might be looking at would exceed the amount of revenue that we're looking at putting in place right now. So our task would be to take what's left over and how that might be budgeted through the 2016 through the 2020 school years,” Sorrells said. Under what he calls Project Cooperation, Mayor Bob Rial says the county can borrow $6 million without needing a property tax increase to cover the additional debt. The school system has committed $1.6 million from its reserves and capital outlay budget to assist with the funding. Rial said he will be prepared to present a borrowing proposal to the commission at its Nov. 3 work session.21.10.2014 at 09:13 amLike
101.5 The One FM Unable to get answers to all their questions, Dickson County commissioners postponed a vote on contracting with a company to handle past-due billing for the county's solid waste fee. Under the proposed contract, Pinnacle Data Systems would produce and mail a postcard notice each month to residents who are 90 or 120 days late in paying the county's $10 sanitation fee. Pinnacle conducts billing for Dickson Electric System, which includes the sanitation fee bill. But the Dickson County Solid Waste Management Department is currently printing and mailing a letter by hand for past-due accounts. Superintendent Jim Lunn has estimated it costs his department about $1.83 per late notice mailed. While the contract with Pinnacle offers several options for services, Lunn has said it would cost 15 cents per notice for the company to generate and mail the cards. Since Pinnacle handles billing for DES, it already has the database for mailing the notices. But with Lunn not present at Monday's meeting, attorney Brian Ragan was unable to answer all the commissioners' questions when he presented the contract for their consideration. Ragan said Pinnacle is not being hired as a collection agency to go after past-due accounts, but is proposed just for producing and mailing the late notices. “They're not going to be a billing company in terms of they send out a bill in their name and they receive money on behalf of the county. It's simply going to be more of a printing service, where, as opposed to Mr. Lunn having staff hired at his facility to prepare the letters and fold them and mail them out, this company will take the data that is already on file through the Dickson Electric System and once a customer becomes so many days past due, then it will generate a postcard notice that will go out to that customer as to the past-due status of the payment of their solid waste fees,” Ragan said. Ragan said the contract was modified to include a “90-day out” that would allow the county to end the agreement if it determines there is a more efficient way of handling the past-due notices. Commissioner Cotton Dawson asked what the total cost of the service will be, but Ragan said that will be determined by the services the county chooses from the menu within the contract. Lunn has said an exact cost will be determined by how many people are late in paying the fee, but Ragan said Monday it is not expected to exceed $10,000 a year. Funds to pay for the service would come out of the solid waste department's budget and Mayor Bob Rial said the fee is currently generating enough money to cover the additional cost. But several commissioners appeared uncomfortable voting on the contract without more definitive information on the cost. The commission voted 9-1 to defer the contract to its Nov. 3 work session when Lunn could be present to answer their questions. Commissioner Shane Chandler cast the only dissenting vote and commissioners Kelly Sesler Weatherspoon and Tony Adams were absent.21.10.2014 at 09:13 amLike
