Rules surrounding the placement of fire hydrants in Rutherford County may soon change. Currently, fire hydrants are required to be installed within 1,000 feet of new homes. A proposal by County Fire Chief Larry Farley would change that requirement to within 500-feet of new homes. The move would greatly help volunteer firefighters in the county gain quicker access to a water supply to fight fires.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
