Three Hispanic men, involved in traffic accidents Monday evening on Vaughn Lane, escaped injury but were cited for not having a drivers license and for violation of the financial responsibility law (no insurance)

Trooper Todd Logan of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says 51 year old Pedro Candelario of McMinnville was driving west in a 1995 Chevy pickup truck when he went off the left side of the road and struck a utility pole as a westbound Honda Accord, driven by 24 year old Eleazar Perez of Smithville, was passing him.

Perez then rear-ended a Ford Taurus, driven by 21 year old Virgilio Mendoza of McMinnville, who had stopped in the road after the Candelario crash.

Again, no one was injured in the accidents but several customers of Caney Fork Electric Cooperative, including WJLE, were without power for about three hours.

In addition to being cited for no drivers license and no insurance, Perez was also cited for improper passing and failing to exercise due care.

All three men are reportedly employees of Zelenka Nursery.

City Aldermen Say No to Beer Sales on Sundays and Christmas Day

The Smithville Aldermen Monday night voted unanimously to just say no to city beer sales on Sunday's and Christmas Day.

The Smithville Beer Board, last month, voted to recommend that the city council consider allowing stores with beer permits to sell on Sunday's from one until six p.m. and all day on Christmas Day.

On Monday night, this was the first issue on the agenda and when it was brought up for discussion, Alderman Tonya Sullivan made a motion to leave the beer ordinance as it is and take no action. Alderman Steve White seconded the motion. Aldermen Cecil Burger, Willie Thomas, and Jerry Hutchins Sr. joined Sullivan and White in making the vote unanimous.

Ronnie Dale of the Budweiser Company and K.C. Johnson of the Miller Company both of Cookeville came before the beer board last month to request that Sunday beer sales be considered and they provided some statistics on tax revenue in cities and counties that do and don't permit Sunday sales.

Dale and Johnson claim that Smithville could stand to gain as much as $60,745 in additional tax revenue per year from Sunday beer sales.

Concerned citizen Tim Ferguson Monday night thanked the aldermen for rejecting the beer board's recommendation. "We do appreciate it. To some folks $60,000 is a lot of money, but that's not anything compared to moma's and daddies having to bury their children because somebody hit them because of drinking or the fact that they got it. It's not going to keep it out of people's hands. I'm not naive about the things that go on. But we need to keep something sacred around here and Smithville and DeKalb County doesn't need that. We have something special in Smithville and if we keep working it will get better but we don't need to let stuff come in and rob it."

In other business, the board adopted an ordinance on first reading to change the zoning classification of property at the intersection of Bryant and Murphy Streets with Bright Hill Road from R-2 Medium Density Residential to B-2 General Business. This is the property of the First Assembly of God. Second and final reading action will be scheduled following a public hearing at the next meeting on February 18th at 7:00 p.m.

The members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department met on January 7th for the purpose of electing officers. As per the charter, the city council has to approved the selection of officers and firefighters.

Members of the department as as follows: Chief Charlie Parker, Assistant Chief Robert Eller, Deputy Chief Hoyte Hale, Captain Jeff Wright, Lieutenants Danny Poss, John Poss, and Donnie Cantrell, and Firefighters Anthony Wright, William Brown, Kevin Adcock, Davey Ferrell, Charles Young, Wallace Caldwell, Dusty Johnson, Gary Johnson, James R. Hunt, Stephanie Brown, Stephanie Wright, Joseph Hall, and Photographer Greg Bess.

The aldermen voted unanimously Monday night to approve the list of firefighters and officers.

The city board also voted unanimously to prepare an ordinance to rename Calhoun Street to Bill Bing Drive. Mayor Taft Hendrixson says Bing's daughter, Betty Smith, made the request for the street to be renamed in memory of her father who once owned much of the property in that area for many years. He says Ms Smith and her daughter are the only two individuals who have addresses on Calhoun Street. First reading action will be scheduled at the next meeting on February 18th.

A 33 year old man, accused of abusing his wife and threatening law enforcement officers, was arrested Monday by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says Mark Allen Brewington of Ponder Lane, Smithville is charged with Domestic Assault, two counts of Aggravated Assault on an Officer, resisting arrest, and unlawful possession of a weapon with the intent to go armed. He is under a $37,500 bond and his court date is February 14th.

Sheriff Ray says deputies responded Monday to a domestic call from a battered woman on Ponder Lane While the officers were enroute, Central Dispatch advised them that Brewington, the alleged abuser, was on the phone with them and warned that he would spray the deputies with bullets when they arrived. The officers then contacted Sheriff Ray about the incident.

Deputies found Brewington's wife in her vehicle at the end of the road leaving the residence. After interviewing her and learning that Brewington has had extensive military training and access to various weapons in his home, Sheriff Ray then contacted the Tennessee Highway Patrol Tactical Unit for assistance.

While waiting on the THP Special Unit to arrive, officers were positioned at locations around the residence to keep a watch on the house in case Brewington tried to leave his residence. After a short wait, Brewington came out of the home and got into a vehicle in his driveway. Brewington, in an attempt to leave the residence, aimed his vehicle at two deputies in an attempt to flee the scene. Officers moved in on Brewington and took him into custody. Officers found a loaded 9mm Ruger in Brewington's vehicle and two more guns in his home.

Meanwhile, in s separate case, 31 year old Bryan Douglas Brannon of Big Hurricane Road, Smithville was arrested Monday for DUI, Resisting Arrest, and Possession of a Schedule III drug (Hydocodone) for resale.

Sheriff Ray says deputies responded to a call on King Ridge Road, Dowelltown about a suspicious vehicle parked in someone's driveway. Upon arrival, deputies found Brannon passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle, the motor running, and Brannon's foot was on the brake. After deputies awakened Brannon, he refused to get out so the officers removed Brannon from the vehicle. They also found a pill bottle containing 15 yellow pills believed to be Hydrocodone.

Brannon's bond was set at $16,500 and his court date is February 21st.

In another case, 20 year old Dallas Edward Hannah of Four Seasons Road Smithville was arrested Saturday after deputies were summoned to DeKalb Market on Highway 70.

Officers found Hannah passed out under the wheel of his vehicle at one of the gas pumps with the motor running. Hannah was awakened by the deputies and found to be intoxicated. He was placed under arrest for DUI. Upon a search of his person, deputies found three green pills believed to be Valium and two blue pills believed to be Hydrocodone. The pills were in a cellophane wrapper in Hannah's pocket. Hannah's bond was set at $4,500 and his court date is February 21st.

Meanwhile, on Sunday deputies arrested 26 year old Danny Ray Murphy of Shady Drive Smithville for Reckless Endangerment and DUI. Murphy was involved in a one vehicle accident on Highway 70 West where a deputy witnessed Murphy run his vehicle into a building belonging to DeKalb Market. Murphy also had a eight year old child with him. Bond was set at $5,000 and his court date is February 22nd.

DeKalb Farm Bureau & DeKalb County 4-H Commemorates Food Check-Out Week

February 3, 2008

Food in America is affordable. In fact, between January 1 and February 3, 2008, the average American will have earned enough disposable income to pay for his or her food supply for the entire year, according to the DeKalb County Farm Bureau. As a result, the DeKalb County Farm Bureau and DeKalb County 4-H is celebrating February 3 - Feb. 9, 2008, as Food Check-Out Week.

The latest statistics compiled by the Agriculture Department’s (USDA’s) Economic Research Service indicate American families and individuals currently spend, on average, just 9.5 percent of their disposable personal income for food.

Applying the current statistic to the calendar year, it means the average household will have earned enough disposable income -- that portion of income available for spending or saving -- to pay for its annual food supply in just five weeks.

Not only is America’s food supply the world’s safest, but it’s also the most affordable. Food Check-Out Week tracks the amount of income needed by Americans to purchase food on an annual basis. In comparison to Food Check-Out Week, most Americans worked until mid-April to pay their taxes in 2007, according to The Tax Foundation. The high-quality, affordable food we enjoy is a product of our successful food production and distribution system, as well as America’s farmers retaining access to effective and affordable crop protection tools.
This week should hold meaning for most Americans. As food producers, we are concerned that some Americans cannot afford to buy the food they need, but we are proud of the role Tennessee farmers play in making our food supply more affordable for all.

DeKalb County Farm Bureau personnel and DeKalb County 4-Her’s will be in some of the local stores distributing information on these issues on February 5, 2008 from 3:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Kevin Adcock Named Outstanding Smithville Firefighter of the Year

The Most Outstanding Smithville Firefighter of the Year is Kevin Adcock.

Adcock received special recognition for this honor during an awards dinner held Friday night for members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department. The dinner was held at the Christian Fellowship Center of the Smithville First United Methodist Church.

Robert Eller, a member of the department for 62 years, was awarded for having attended the most calls during 2007.

Fire Chief Charlie Parker says both Adcock and Eller are most deserving of these special honors. "We recognized Mr. Eller for most calls attended this past year which includes total calls, training, workings, meetings, etc. He responded to the most calls out of all the firemen for everything, about 172 calls. So we recognized him for that."

"The Outstanding Firefighter of the Year is voted on by the other firemen. Each firefighter voted for a fellow firemen that he or she thought did an outstanding or exceptional job. That's really tough because they (firefighters) think everybody does a good job so it's kind of hard to get that one (award). Kevin Adcock does a fantastic job. He does all of our web site and computer work and he does all of our reporting to the state. He puts in many, many hours other than actual fire calls just keeping up with stuff so he is well deserving of that award."

All members of the department were recognized for their years of service including;

Joseph Hall and Stephanee Wright- one year; Stephanie Brown, Randall Hunt, Gary Johnson, and Dustin Johnson- two years; Wallace Caldwell-three years; Charles Young-seven years; Davey Ferrell and Kevin Adcock-eight years; Wink Brown-nine years; Greg Bess-twelve years; Anthony Wright and John Poss- sixteen years; Jeff Wright and Hoyte Hale- twenty two years; Donnie Cantrell, Danny Poss, and Charles Parker- twenty seven years; and Robert Eller-sixty two years.

Chief Parker reflected on the accomplishments of the past year. "2007 was a good year for us. We are thankful that we had a year with no injuries. No firefighter was injured in any of the calls that we had and that's always a plus to not have any of those. Our number one thing is our fire hall project, which is well underway. They have just completed the first floor and now they are starting on the second floor of it. This has been a project that has been many years in coming and we owe a lot of gratitude to our current and former mayor and aldermen who have helped to get us where we are with it. The Smithville First United Methodist Church was a big asset to us. They had some fund raisers for us and helped us in purchasing some dress blue uniforms so all of our firefighters from the officers all the way down to the rookies now have dress blue uniforms. We got to wear them in the Christmas parade. It was the first time we all got to wear them. Those are for special occasions. We're excited to have the uniforms which help make us look more professional."

Vester Parsley Named City Attorney

The new attorney for the City of Smithville is Vester Parsley, Jr.

The Smithville Mayor and Aldermen met in special session Tuesday night at city hall and the council voted 4 to 0 for Parsley.

Aldermen Tonya Sullivan, Willie Thomas, Jerry Hutchins Sr., and Steve White voted for Parsley. Alderman Cecil Burger was absent.

Parsley succeeds former city attorney John Pryor, who resigned as of December 31st.

In addition to Parsley, former city attorney Sarah Cripps was also interested in the position and submitted her resume for consideration.

Meanwhile, Jerry Hutchins, Jr., son of alderman Jerry Hutchins' Sr., was hired as an investigator for the Smithville Police Department, upon the recommendation of Police Chief Richard Jennings.

Two others had applied for the job, former Smithville Police Officer Marcus Caldwell and Danny Holmes of Baxter.

At last report, Caldwell was working for the White County Sheriff's Department and Holmes, a former long time employee of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, was head of Safety and Security at Cookeville Regional Medical Center.

Hutchins is a former employee of the Smithville Police Department and Lebanon Police Department and has been working for the Wilson County Sheriff's Department. He was the only applicant who attended Tuesday night's meeting.

Mayor Taft Hendrixson claimed that neither of the three applicants met the city's qualifications for the position. "One of them has just a little over a year's experience as an officer and we asked for eight. One of them lived out of the county. He could respond within the twenty minutes but he did not live in the county. I don't think probably either one of the three had the three years of prior investigative experience that I could ascertain."

Concerning Hutchins', Mayor Hendrixson added that ‘I talked to the Chief Deputy of Wilson County, where he is currently employed and he said he (Hutchins) had not been employed as an investigator down there but that he was a good employee and he hated to lose him. I talked to a lieutenant at the Lebanon Police Department and he (Hutchins) hadn't been employed as an investigator there."

Mayor Hendrixson says the job description specifications for the city investigator position stated that applicants must have been a POST certified officer for eight years with three years of investigative experience as an investigator.

Hutchins says he has more than three years of investigative experience and cited letters of recommendations he has received from people he has worked for, having done part time private investigation assignments. "This (letter) is from an attorney in Lebanon I have worked for, Karen Chaffin, which says during the past four years I have utilized the services of Jerry Hutchins whenever I have been in need of a trained investigator. Jerry's duties have varied widely from one case to another depending upon the investigative needs of the particular matter. He has always conducted himself in a highly professional manner. I continue to be impressed with his work ethic and his attention to detail."

Hutchins also read a letter of recommendation from an operator of a property management company. "The purpose of this letter is to confirm that Jerry Hutchins has conducted numerous investigations for our office including but not limited to background checks and criminal histories of potential tenants at our rental properties. He has been assisting our office since 2002 on a case by case basis and would highly recommend him for any investigative work that you may need."

Chief Jennings also claimed that during his previous tenure as chief, Hutchins worked in the police department for up to fifteen months, doing investigative work. "He is certified as a child sexual abuse and death/ homicide investigator. He has hostage negotiating experience and he has a narcotics investigation certificate.

Alderman White made a motion that the city re-advertise to seek more applications. However, his motion died for the lack of a second.

White also complained that his fellow aldermen were not adhering to standard procedures that have been followed in the past and recommended by MTAS, allowing the mayor, secretary-treasurer, and city commissioner over the police department to make the initial hire, subject to final approval by the aldermen at a later council meeting.

Aldermen Thomas made a motion to hire Hutchins. Alderman Sullivan offered a second to the motion. Both voted for Hutchins along with Hutchins' father, Jerry Hutchins Sr. Aldermen Steve White voted "no".

Alderman Hutchins stated his "personal interest" but said he was voting his conscience. In a prepared statement, Hutchins said " I would like to advise this Board of my personal interest in one of the applicants, namely, my son, Jerry Hutchins, Jr."

"There have been questions arise regarding whether I could vote or not, so I have contacted MTAS (Municipal Technical Advisory Service), and was informed in writing by their legal department that I would be able to vote without conflict or ethics violations after first stating my interest which I have done."

"I would respectfully ask the City Recorder to make this letter from MTAS a part of the official minutes of this meeting. With this being stated and understood at this time, I will exercise my right to vote and vote "yes".

The letter to Hutchins from Dennis Huffer, legal consultant for MTAS, states that " You asked whether you could vote on a contract between the City of Smithville and your son. In my opinion, this would not be a conflict of interest under state law since you and your son are not in business together and, as you informed me, you and your son do not commingle your funds."

"This situation, however would be a personal interest under the City's ethics ordinance. According to records of the Tennessee Ethics Commission, Smithville adopted the MTAS Model Code of Ethics. Under Section 2 of the model ordinance, a city official has a personal interest in a matter if the official's spouse, parent, step parent, grandchild, sibling, child, or stepchild has a financial interest in the matter. Therefore your son's financial interest becomes your personal interest."

"The matter for which you would have a personal interest is one requiring a vote of the governing body, and Section 3 of the model ordinance mandates the official's actions relative to the vote. You must acknowledge your personal interest in the contract with your son at the meeting and before the vote so your acknowledgment appears in the minutes. Then you may vote or recuse yourself from voting."

In other business, the aldermen voted 4 to 0 to hire Wesley Nokes as the new airport manager, upon the recommendation of the airport board.. Mayor Hendrixson says Nokes has an aerospace degree and has been working for Southwest Airlines in Hartford, Connecticut, but this is his home and he wants to return here.

Robinson's Indicted in Cannon County Prescription Drug Scheme

January 28, 2008

The arrest of a Smithville man last month by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department has led to more charges against him and his wife in Cannon County.

40 year old Mark (Truck) Robinson has been indicted by a Cannon County Grand Jury on charges of theft and conspiracy to commit theft over $10,000. He is free on a $10,000 bond.

Robinson's wife, 37 year old Kyra Robinson, is indicted on 268 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud (xanax) prescriptions and one count of theft and one count of conspiracy to commit theft over $10,000. She is free on a $200,000 bond.

The Robinson's will be arraigned on February 15th.

Kyra Robinson, who was working as a nurse for the Cannon County Jail, is charged with obtaining prescriptions in the name of Cannon County inmates, and then bringing the prescriptions home to her husband in Smithville, who allegedly sold them.

The case stemmed from a local investigation.

In December, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department executed a search warrant at the home of the Robinson's on Anthony Avenue in Smithville.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says officers made at least one drug buy from Robinson's residence and during the search, they found 193 Xanax pills, 203 empty prescription bottles with numerous individuals' names on them, hemostats, rolling papers, roach clips, syringes, and a pill grinder.

In the December case, Mark Robinson was charged with possession of a schedule IV drug (Xanax) for sale and delivery and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $26,500

Officers seized the cash from Robinson.

Sheriff Ray says it was during the December investigation that he learned that the empty prescription bottles found at Robinson's home had the names of several Cannon County inmates on them.

He then contacted the TBI and the Cannon County Sheriff's Department with this discovery.

The following prepared statement was released to WBRY by Cannon County Sheriff Billy Nichols. " During the week of December 14, 2007 I (Sheriff Nichols) started an internal investigation on my jail nurse, Kyra Robinson. It was brought to my attention that she was possibly obtaining narcotics under the authority of a doctor and Cannon County (but apparently unbeknown to the doctor and Cannon County officials).

With the assistance of DeKalb County Sheriff Patrick Ray and the T.B.I. (Tennessee Bureau of Investigation), I discovered that she was in-fact obtaining narcotics at Woodson's Pharmacy here in Cannon County. These narcotics turned out to be Xanax. My investigation revealed that Ms. Robinson has been obtaining these drugs and charging them to the county. I was able to stop her illegal activity and determined that she defrauded the county out of thousands of dollars this fiscal year and stopped the account before any further funds could be depleted from my budget.

On January 24th, the Cannon County Grand Jury returned a sealed indictment charging her with 268 counts of fraud, one count of theft and one count of conspiracy to commit theft. She was arrested on January 25th and was released on a $200,000.00 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned on 15 February 2008.

Kyra Robinson resigned her position as an employee of the Cannon County Sheriff's Department after she was confronted with the evidence against her.

This incident is still under investigation by T.B.I.
