Today In The Upper Cumberland: Addiction Pt 2

This week, we hear the stories of several individuals recovering from addiction.

Opioid abatement money is on its to the counties of the Upper Cumberland, and to those all across the state. The question now, how will it be best spent, and can the counties of the Upper Cumberland work together to solve some common issues? For example, how do we get recovering addicts jobs that they need? How do we find them affordable housing from people who are wiling to rent to them? In short, as more and more people find themselves at the mercy of addiction, we as a society can’t simply put them in a box any longer, and label them as addicts. We need them for jobs. We need them to raise their children. We need them as contributing members of society. And so we continue on a two week journey today as we sit down with some very honest recovering addicts who tell their story.

Today In The Upper Cumberland airs each weekend as a way to introduce you to interesting people and subjects of interest to our community.

Today In The Upper Cumberland: Public Safety

Tennessee Tech lecturer Dr. Mark Warnick discusses the topic of public safety.

When Governor Lee called a special session of the state legislature that began this week, the idea was it would be meaningful work to try to deal with gun violence. That certainly has not happened yet further illustrating just how difficult it is to find consensus on the issue. A local expert says, for that reason and others, it’s up to each one of us to get involved and change the narrative. Dr. Mark Warnick is a lecturer at Tennessee Tech.

Today In The Upper Cumberland: Elder Abuse

UCDD’s Trent Carter breaks down and discusses the growing issue of elder abuse.

The National Council On Aging estimates 1 in 10 older adults experiences elder abuse. Even more concerning, the Center on Elder Abuse estimates only 1 in 24 cases of elder abuse are ever reported. More and more of us are reaching senior citizen age. That means elder abuse will likely increase. It’s up to all of us to be a part of the solution. Trent Carter is an Adult Advocate for Elder and Vulnerable Adults with UCDD.

Today In The Upper Cumberland: Law Enforcement Careers

We continue to go inside the challenges of law enforcement recruitment circa 2023

This week, Putnam County Commissioners approved 92 new employees as part of the 2023-2024 fiscal year budget. The biggest part of those new staffers will come in the expanded Putnam County Justice Center set to be completed next Spring. The budget also includes additional pay for many of the new hires, and a quicker timeline to get to maximum pay. Putnam County Sheriff Eddie Farris says the extra money will help with recruiting, but it’s just one part of the challenge right now to get people to enter law enforcement, and to stay there. We continue discussion with Eddie Farris, and Livingston Police Chief Ray Smith.
