The Senior Citizen Visitation Unit will host two Senior Citizen / Alzheimer registration events this week. A family member, friend, or neighbor can fill out an application for someone in need, but the senior citizen has to want to participate and welcome the visits. It’s important the Sheriff’s Office has senior citizens’ current information for those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer, in the event they are reported missing.
The first registration will convene today at the Senior Center located at 230 Urbane Rd. from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Later in the week, another registration will be held at Bradley Square Mall’s (Santa –Fe entrance) between the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 10th.
All applications received will be entered into a database, and scheduled visits will be set up by Captain Ralph Creel who oversees this unit.

Bradley County Commissioner Dan Rawls’ second attempt to pass a resolution opposing any legislation from the state Legislature that would raise fuel tax rates ended the same way it did the first time.
The vote was 9-5 against the resolution, with the same four who voted in Rawls’ favor the first time supporting him again. Only Commissioner Johnny Mull added his vote to that roll call Monday night.
Despite Rawls’ arguments such a rate hike would take away from people’s spending power, the state’s large surplus makes it unneeded, and the state would not necessarily spend the money for transportation, it became evident most of the commissioners preferred not to taunt the agency which has provided tens of millions of dollars in bridge and road projects over the last few years, as well as the agency the county will need to complete long-needed and hoped for improvements to Highway 60.

A judge says evidence collected from a Tennessee bus crash that killed six school students must remain sealed to protect the 24-year-old bus driver’s constitutional rights while he faces criminal prosecution.
Police say Johnthony Walker was speeding in November while driving 37 elementary students home from school. The bus left a curvy road, hit a utility pole, overturned and hit a tree. Walker was charged with vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving in the Chattanooga crash.
Several families are suing Walker and his employer, Durham School Services, over the crash.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports Hamilton County Circuit Court Judge J.B. Bennett told plaintiffs’ attorneys Monday that they cannot yet see video footage, engine control module data or other data provided by the bus company.
