TCAT Doors Being Kept Locked Today

 

By Shannon McFarlin WENK/WTPR News Director

ParisTenn.—The Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) in Paris is keeping its doors locked today as an extra level of security for students there.

TCAT Director Brad White told WENK/WTPR this morning that the doors are being kept locked “as a precautionary measure”, due to an incident involving students that occurred recently.

“There have been no incidents here and hopefully there won’t be,” White said. “We’re just watching all the entrances and keeping watch over who comes in to the building.”

White said it is unclear how long the doors will be kept locked. “It may be just today; it may be tomorrow. We don’t know yet.”

Paris, Tenn.—In her second year as Executive Director of the Paris-Henry County Arts Council, Amy Jones said her major focus is on consolidating the efforts of local arts programs.

The Arts Council’s move to the Lee Academy for the Arts has been a big part of accomplishing that goal, she said.

“What we want to do is work together with the other arts programs in Henry County and having our office in this building has really helped with that,” Jones said.

For several years, the Arts Council office had been located at Paris City Hall. Jones said, “We really appreciated all that the city of Paris did for us, allowing us to have our office there. We were already thinking we needed to consolidate and the city needed that space, so this move just makes so much sense.”

Jones said she spoke to Lee Academy board members about how to accomplish more coordination between the programs and they agreed, offering an office in the historic two-story former Lee School.

“It has really helped us to partner with the Lee Academy more directly,” she said. “And it has really helped me being here, where there are artistic programs and classes going on all the time. The Arts Council is really making a lot of good contacts being here. It’s really helped communicating between the programs.”

Jones, who is from Louisville, Ky., lives in Paris with her husband, Leland, and four children. She and her husband met at Murray State and she has past experience as stage manager at Ballet Memphis and the Arkansas Childen’s Theater in Little Rock.

The Arts Council can be contacted by calling 642 -3955.

 

Martin Man Cited For Gun Discharge

MartinTenn.—A Martin man will appear in court this week on charges of reckless endangerment charge and discharging a handgun within the city limits after an incident at his apartment Friday night.

Martin Police responded to 528 Ellis St., Apt. 1124 on a gunshot call around 8:30 p.m. Friday. It was determined a handgun had been discharged when Lamont Harris, age 24, of Martin, had picked up his Glock 9mm handgun from a bar in the kitchen and pulled the trigger.

The round passed through his own exterior wall, through the wall of the adjacent apartment, through the headboard of a bed, through a dresser on the opposite side of the room, through an interior wall and in to a closet.  The spent round was located in the closet floor. 

Captain Phillip Fuqua said, “No one was harmed during the incident, but initially, Mr. Harris did hide his weapon under his mattress and told officers that he did not know anything about the incident.  After further investigation, Mr. Harris did admit to firing the shot and completed a written statement explaining the event.”

Investigation Ongoing After Fatal Shooting

By Shannon McFarlin WENK/WTPR News Director

ParisTenn.—An investigation is ongoing into the shooting death of a Henry County man Friday night.

According to the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, Jonathan Tyson Goodlow was killed during an altercation at a home at 75 Turkey Lane around 10:45 p.m. Friday.

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to that residence by 911, with the caller saying that an intruder had been shot.

According to the press release from the sheriff’s office, deputies found Goodlow dead at the scene and that a resident, John Marcus Green, had shot him.

Upon preliminary investigation, it was determined by the Criminal Investigation Unit that Goodlow found his estranged wife’s vehicle there due to a tracking device placed on her car by a third party. Goodlow approached the car and retrieved the tracking device, then went to the front door, according to the press release.

At that time, the press release states, Goodlow allegedly forced his way into the home and during a struggle with his estranged wife and Green, he was shot by Green.

County Coroner Danny Tucker declared Goodlow deceased. Chief Deputy Damon Lowe said the deputies were assisted at the scene by the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Rescue Squad.

Sheriff Monte Belew said the investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed. The sheriff’s office is in continuous contact with the District Attorney’s office and once all the evidence has been filed, it will be turned over to the DA’s office.


Shooting Info To Be Released Today

ParisTenn.—Information on a shooting that occurred Friday night on Turkey Lane in Henry County will be released later today by the Henry County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Monte Belew said Saturday night there is no suspect at large and no arrests have been made in the shooting.

Five Area Hunters Lose Licenses For One Year

Two Others Waive Preliminary Hearing

 

By Shannon McFarlin WENK/WTPR News Director

ParisTenn.—Five hunters lost their hunting privileges as a result of an order handed down in Henry County General Sessions Court Thursday, with two more opting for another hearing in the local Circuit Court in the future.

Five hunters—one of whom is the Benton County Director of Schools—appeared for their preliminary hearing Thursday. They were charged with exceeding their daily bag limit of ducks, specifically illegal taking, possessing and destroying of wildlife.

The five were: Mark Florence, Camden (Benton County Director of Schools), Jake Ballard Lumpkin, Camden; Timothy Sanders, Springville; Kody Owen, Gleason, and Gary Troutt, Camden.

The two who waived their right to a preliminary hearing and are seeking a hearing in Circuit Court are Andrew Troutt, who owns the land where the hunting took place and Allen Douglas of Camden.

The charges against the five were brought by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA), with Assistant District Attorney Paul Hessing representing the TWRA. The seven hunters were all represented by Attorney Neil Thompson of Paris.

According to Greg Barker of the TWRA, all seven were hunting in an area off of Little Benton Rd. along the Big Sandy River in Henry County.

He said Andrew Troutt also is charged with baiting.

Under the order, the case was continued for a year and Florence, Lumpkin, Sanders, Owen and Gary Troutt lost their hunting licenses for a year and fined a total of $485 ($200 fine and $285 court costs). The five still do have their fishing privileges.

 

 

Louisiana Hunter Loses Privileges For Two Years

By Shannon McFarlin WENK/WTPR News Director

ParisTenn.-A hunter from Louisiana lost his hunting license for two years after being found guilty of killing deer over the legal limit in Henry County General Sessions Court Thursday.

William Hunter Benton of St. FrancisvilleLa., was sentenced by Judge Vicki Snyder to a fine of $350 ($50 for each of the seven deer killed); $285 in court costs and ordered that he lose his hunting privileges for two years. Benton also paid restitution of $1500 to TWRA.

TWRA Officer Greg Barker said Benton was charged with five counts of illegal taking and possession of deer, hunting without a license and not wearing blaze orange.

He said it is important to note that when someone loses their hunting license in Tennessee, they automatically lose it in 45 other states at the same time, due to the Wildlife Violator Compact that TWRA belongs to.

Benton was caught with the deer in his truck while hunting on Little Benton Rd. in Henry County.

Henry County Industries Create 107 New Jobs


Paris, Tenn.--Existing industries in Henry County invested more than $19 million in new equipment and facility upgrades and added 107 new jobs to Henry County’s economy during the period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016, according to statistics released by the Henry County Alliance. 


The number of jobs increased from 1,658 full-time company positions to 1,765, according to Alliance CEO David Hamilton.


 “70% of the new jobs created in manufacturing come from local industry expansions,” Hamilton said. “We are fortunate to have strong, growing industries in Henry County and supporting our existing industries is our number one priority.”


These job growth figures only include manufacturing jobs and do not take into account the new jobs created in the retail, medical and commercial business sectors.  “We have seen growth in our retail, medical and commercial sectors as well,” Hamilton said. 


The most recent unemployment figures provided by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development shows Henry County’s unemployment rate is 6.7%, a 1.9% decrease from the same period a year ago.  There are 13,970 people in Henry County’s labor force, 13,040 people are employed and 930 people remain unemployed.


 “We are working hard to create opportunities for the 930 people still unemployed in HenryCounty,” Hamilton stated.

 

Couple Robbed At Gunpoint In Their Home


Union City, Tenn.-Union City Police are seeking two suspects in the aggravated armed robbery which injured two people at a Union City residence early this morning.


According to the police report, two black males with masks on forcibly entered a home at 516 N. Dobbins St. and robbed a man and woman at gunpoint. The suspects struck both in the head with their guns, causing minor injuries.

Stolen was $200 in cash and a cell phone.


Judge Issues Decision In Criminal Sentencing


Paris, Tenn.–  Following a lengthy hearing held last week in Henry County Circuit Court regarding the effects of a new law concerning criminal sentencing, Judge Donald Parish has issued his decision.


Defendants Victor Sims and A. B. Price, both of Paris, intend to plead guilty to pending charges pursuant to a negotiated plea agreement with the sentence to be served partly in jail but with the remainder served on supervised probation.


According to a press release from Circuit Court Clerk Mike Wilson, the cases presented similar legal issues arising as a result of changes in Tennessee sentencing and probation statutes which became effective January 1.  The collective effect of the statutes was to transfer from the trial judge to a probation officer the power to sanction a probationer for the violation of the most commonly disobeyed conditions of probation – like illegal drug use. Judges routinely impose restrictions or conditions on probationers at the time of sentencing.


In a 44- page Order filed February 16, Judge Parish clarified some parts of the new statutes. The Judge decided that the legislature could not transfer the authority to make probation violation decisions from a court to a probation officer because those decisions were exclusively the duty of a judge, according to the Tennessee constitution. 


Judge Parish also concluded that an attempt to sanction a probationer from an alleged violation of probation, which involved a significant impact on their life, like being ordered to mental health treatment, required advance notice to the probationer and a fair hearing of the circumstances by a judge before the action could be taken, unless the action was knowingly agreed to by the probationer.
