The Bridges of Cumberland County
Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday February 22, 2017

Following a new study which reveals that 55,000 bridges in the U.S. are structurally deficient, the Tennessee Department of Transportation says only 5 percent of the state’s 20,000 bridges are in need of repair. However, 7 of those deficient bridges are in Cumberland County, which has a total of 135 bridges. The nearby counties of Anderson, Fentress and Roane also have 7 bridges each that are structurally deficient. Morgan County has 13 bridges that are in poor condition. It should be noted that “structurally deficient” does not necessarily mean that a bridge is in danger of collapse.

Remington recalls Model 700, Model Seven rifles
WVLT Tuesday February 21, 2017

Remington voluntarily recalled their Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with X-Mark Pro triggers that were made from May 1, 2006, to April 9, 2014.

Remington announced that some Model 700 and Model Seven rifles with XMP triggers could unintentionally discharge.

A Remington investigation revealed that some XMP triggers may have excess bonding agent used during the assembly process when the rifles are made.

How to determine if your rifle is subject to the recall:

1. Find the rifle's serial number whre the barrel meets the receiver. The serial number is located on the user's left for a right-handed rifle. The serial number can be found on the gun carrier's right if it is a left-handed rifle.

2. Give the serial number to Remington's recall support team by calling 1-800-243-9700 (Prompt 3 then Prompt 1). Calls are accepted Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.

3. Undergo a rifle visual inspection. If the face of the trigger is ribbed, the rifle does not have an XMP trigger and is not subject to the recall. If the face of the trigger is smooth, the rifle is subject to the recall.

Remington advised Remington Model 700 and Model Seven rifle owners to stop using the rifle to prevent unintended discharge of the weapon that could potentially cause death or injuries.
