Study Shows Bridges in Need of Repair
AP Friday February 17, 2017

An alarming new study shows more than 55,000 bridges in the United States are considered structurally deficient.
The study is from the American Road and Transportation Builder’s Association.
The report includes nearly 1,000 bridges in Tennessee in need of attention.
But the Tennessee Department of Transportation says some of the information in the study could be outdated.
TDOT spokesperson BJ Doughty told reporters sometimes it could be that they’ve already repaired the bridge or it could be that it's slated for repairs in the near future.
Structurally deficient doesn’t necessarily mean a bridge is in danger of collapse but it could mean the overall structure is in poor condition or part of the bridge has deteriorated.
TDOT inspects the state’s more than 20,000 bridges every two years and has an “aggressive repair program,” according to Doughty.
The state is looking over the study and making sure they’re aware of any bridges that need to be fixed.

 


Doggart Convicted of Plotting Attack
AP Friday February 17, 2017

A federal jury has convicted a Tennessee man and former Congressional candidate of planning to attack a mosque in New York.
Media outlets report that 65-year-old Robert Doggart was found guilty Thursday of solicitation to commit a civil rights violation, solicitation to commit arson of a building, and making a threat in interstate commerce.
The jury told U.S. District Judge Curtis Collier that it was deadlocked Wednesday. Collier didn't declare a mistrial and told jurors to return Thursday for more deliberations.
Prosecutors said Doggart stockpiled weapons and communicated with others about plans to attack a Muslim community called Islamberg. Prosecutors played a series of conversations Doggart had with a confidential informant in March 2015.
Doggart's attorneys argued that he never had a consistent plan in place and was entrapped by a confidential informant.
Doggart ran for 4th District Representative a few years ago.
