Woman, 62, sickened by Legionnaires at Graceland hotel dies
AP Wednesday September 13, 2017

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Kentucky woman was sickened by Legionnaires' disease after staying at a hotel near the Tennessee home of famed singer Elvis Presley, and an autopsy says the pneumonia caused her death.
The Commercial Appeal reports the 62-year-old was one of nine who contracted Legionnaires' after staying at The Guest House at Graceland. Linda Gail Godsey died June 21 and Kentucky officials say earlier medical problems she suffered also contributed.
Officials in Tennessee say the outbreak was apparently linked to the hotel's hot tub and pool.
Godsey's family filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against hotel officials. The family's attorney, Joe Savage, says Godsey along with two daughters and her sister visited June 10-13. All four became sick after returning home.
The Commercial Appeal was unsuccessful Tuesday in receiving comments from hotel officials.

AP Wednesday September 13, 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - President Donald Trump has nominated David Jolley to serve as the U.S. Marshal for eastern Tennessee. On Tuesday, the offices of U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker praised the pick. Jolley formerly served as U.S. Marshal for western Tennessee, was a Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agent and was director of the Tennessee Valley Authority Police. Jolley first needs the Senate's confirmation.

 


Gas Prices
Wednesday September 13, 2017

Gas prices have begun to plateau for the first time in more than 15 days despite Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma making landfall in the southeast. Holding steady for five days at $2.67, the national gas price average is just three cents more expensive compared to last week. Tennessee's average increased to $2.59 - 4 cents higher than this time last week.
AAA spokesperson Stephanie Milani said Tennessee drivers should see gas prices begin to plateau soon. However, wholesale prices were volatile last week reacting to the predictions of Hurricane Irma, so drivers may not see prices fall as quickly as they rose.
Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.59 on Monday, an increase of 4 cents compared to last week.

 


Tenn. utility workers headed to Florida, Georgia following Hurricane Irma
WVLT Wednesday September 13, 2017

Volunteer lineworkers from 11 electric cooperatives are headed to help in restoration efforts following Hurricane Irma. Over 90 lineworkers have volunteered their time and skills to those in need in Georgia and Florida. Plans were in progress to send crews last week, but co-ops were reluctant to leave until Irma had passed through Tennessee. Now that the storm has gone through, some crews have already left, and others are making final preparations to leave for hard-hit Florida and Georgia. Tennessee isn't the only one sending volunteers, however. 5,000 lineworkers from 25 other states are also heading down the the hurricane ravaged areas.
