Ella Marsh Any updates on the Sonya McCaul case? Heard a pretty major ruling came down from the TN courts on Thursday but for some reason no media or statement from the Hodgins.25.10.2014 at 02:57 pmLike
101.5 The One FM A Hickman County woman facing drug charges was arrested this week after giving birth at Horizon Medical Center. 33-year-old Jamie Rachel Quillen of Bon Aqua was picked up on a warrant for a probation violation as she was leaving the hospital. Investigators say her new baby is being checked for signs of any health issues related to drug use, which could lead to additional charges against the mother. District Attorney Ray Crouch Jr. of the 23rd Judicial District said he is concerned that Quillen's admitted addiction to methamphetamine could jeopardize the newborn's life. Drug agents from the 21st Judicial District raided Quillen's mobile home Sept. 28 and found evidence of manufacturing meth. She was charged with promotion of, manufacturing and possession of meth, but was released from the Hickman County Jail on a reduced bond of $2,500 two days later. Agents said Quillen admitted to having an addiction to meth but District Attorney Kim Helper of the 21st Judicial District said had never failed a drug screening during her pregnancy and her bond was reduced from $127,000 to $2,500 because of the potential financial strain having an inmate giving birth could cause the Hickman County Sheriff's Office. Crouch obtained a warrant charging Quillen with violating the terms of her probation on drug charges in Dickson County and she was arrested as she left Horizon Medical Center after giving birth. Because of federal privacy laws, officials would not discuss the health of the baby. If the newborn is found to have any signs of problems that can be related to fetal drug use, Quillen could be charged with additional counts under new tougher laws in Tennessee.24.10.2014 at 10:49 amLike
101.5 The One FM Early voting in Dickson County appears to be picking up some steam as it heads into the final week. Interim Administrator of Elections Roxanne Hagewood reports 661 early votes were cast at the three locations during extended hours on Wednesday with another 157 just at the election office in Charlotte on Thursday. “We had a good day Wednesday, finally,” Hagewood said. Through the first eight days of the 14-day early voting period, 1,944 votes have been cast. The 818 ballots cast over the last two days account for 42 percent of the total turnout so far. In an effort to make early voting more convenient with the hope of increasing turnout, the Dickson County Election Commission added the satellite location in White Bluff this year. While early voting is required by statute at the election office in Charlotte all 14 days, the election commission added a limited schedule of early voting hours in Dickson and White Bluff despite seeing its overall budget cut. Through Thursday, the election office in Charlotte has been open for early voting for 66 hours and seen 831 ballots for an average of 12.6 voters per hour. The Dickson satellite at Restoration Church has been open 34 hours and received 849 ballots for an average of 25 voters per hour. Election officials had hoped offering early voting in White Bluff would be attractive to commuters and residents of the east side of the county. There have been 264 ballots cast in White Bluff during 26 hours of early voting for an average of 10.2 voters per hour. The final cycle of early voting begins today with polls open until 4 pm in Charlotte and Dickson. The last opportunity to vote on Saturday will see the polls open 8 am-noon tomorrow in Charlotte, Dickson and White Bluff Town Hall. Next Wednesday will be the last chance to vote early at the satellite locations in Dickson and White Bluff and also the last day for extended hours with polls open 8 am-7 pm. Early voting will be in Charlotte only Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, which is the last day. Polls will be open 7 am-7 pm in 17 precincts across the county for election day on Nov. at 10:49 amLike
101.5 The One FM Dickson County was one of 94 counties in the state of Tennessee that saw its unemployment rate decline from August to September. The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development reports that 1,380 Dickson County residents were receiving unemployment benefits in September, which is down from 1,570 the month before. Dickson County's rate dropped from 6.4 percent to 5.6 percent in September, which is more than a full point below the 6.8 percent for the same period in 2013. Only Fayette County saw its unemployment rate increase last month as it rose slightly from 8 percent to 8.1 percent. Overall, Tennessee's unemployment rate dipped from 7.4 to 7.3 percent in September while the national rate declined from 6.1 to 5.9 percent. Lincoln County continues to have the state's lowest rate at 4.6 while Scott County is the highest at 12.3, one of three counties to have double-digit unemployment. Nine of the counties with the 10 lowest rates in the state are in Middle Tennessee.24.10.2014 at 10:49 amLike
101.5 The One FM With Dickson County schools back in session this week following the two-week fall break, the system's Transportation Department reminds everyone of the importance of stopping when school buses stop. This week is National School Bus Safety Week and Dickson County Transportation Director Gary Kimmons said this year's focus is on preventing illegal passing of school buses. This year's theme is #atmystopustop as the National Association of Pupil Transportation elevates discussion on the dangers of cars illegally passing a stopped school bus. Kimmons reminds motorists that school buses are equipped with radios that allow drivers to notify dispatch about drivers who fail to stop when students are boarding or getting off school buses and that information can be passed along to local law enforcement. The NAPT reminds drivers that when they encounter a stopped school bus with lights flashing, even in an opposite lane of travel, the motorists must come to a full and complete stop to allow students to cross the street safely and cannot resume travel until the bus turns off its flashing lights and retracts its stop sign. A survey by the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services found nearly 100,000 school bus drivers reported more than 88,000 vehicles passed their school buses illegally on a single day last year. During the 2012-13 school year, there were nine child fatalities in the school bus danger zone with six of those deaths caused by drivers illegally passing a stopped school bus. Passing a stopped school bus with its lights flashing, even in the opposite lane of travel, is illegal in all 50 states and can carry a substantial fine.24.10.2014 at 10:49 amLike
