The boat flipped multiple times, ejecting many of the passengers. Robin Bentley died. The boat operator has been charged with boating under the influence.

County given disaster designation

As a result of drought and extreme heat that has occurred since May 1, Overton County has received a disaster designation from U.S. Department of Agriculture, according to U.S. Representative Bart Gordon.

"Middle Tennessee's farmers work hard to earn a living, but Mother Nature sometimes makes it even harder," Gordon said. "As a result of this disaster declaration, some farmers may now be eligible for emergency loans to cope with their losses.

"I appreciate the USDA's response to this situation." Governor Phil Bredesen requested a disaster designation for Fentress County on August 1. USDA reviewed the damage assessment report and determined there were enough losses to warrant the designation.

Overton County farmers are eligible for assistance because the county qualifies as a contiguous county to Fentress County.

The designation makes farm operators in both primary and contiguous counties eligible to be considered for low-interest emergency loans from Farm Service Agency, provided eligibility requirements are met.

Affected farmers can call the local FSA office at (931) 823-5506 for further information.

 

Sheriff's Dept. solves Rickman area break-ins

On Saturday, Sept. 9, George Brandon Brown, of Bilbrey Qualls Road, allegedly confessed and returned stolen items. Brown was charged with 4 counts of theft under $500 and with 2 counts of criminal trespassing.
