Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds lost to the Oklahoma City RedHawks, 6-5, on Thursday night at Greer Stadium to earn a four-game split.

First baseman Koby Clemens led the charge for Oklahoma City, hitting a home run with four RBIs in the contest.

Left-hander Chase Wright (0-1) began with two scoreless innings in relief in his 2011 Sounds debut, but ran into trouble in the top of the ninth inning. Wright allowed a hit sandwiched between two walks to load the bases, and then an RBI infield-groundout by Clemons for the go-ahead run.

Department of Revenue announces Extended Due Date for Taxes

 

Taxpayers Filing Franchise and Excise Tax Returns, Gift Tax Returns, and Hall Income Tax Returns Have Until April 18th, 2011 to File

The Seal of the State of TennesseeNashville, TN – Taxpayers who normally file their franchise and excise taxes by April 15th, as well as those filing their individual income taxes and gift taxes by April 15th, have a few extra days to file this year, due to recently passed legislation.

House Bill 1992 / Senate Bill 1520, passed in the legislature April 11th, 2011 and signed by Gov. Bill Haslam on April 13th, officially extends the due date for franchise and excise tax returns, Hall income tax returns and gift tax returns to match the federal due date.  For 2011, this date is April 18th.  Returns normally due on April 15th that are postmarked on or before April 18th, 2011 will be considered timely filed.

Taxpayers should note that franchise and excise tax estimated payments are still due on April 15th.

The official due date for filing individual federal tax forms with the Internal Revenue Service is April 18th instead of April 15th due to observance of Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C. This legislative change in Tennessee allows taxpayers to effectively have the same due dates for their state tax returns as they have for their federal 1040 series return.

“This legislative action makes good sense for taxpayers in Tennessee,” said Revenue Commissioner Richard H. Roberts. “Allowing our state’s citizens the same extended due date available to them at the federal level will help eliminate confusion on part of our taxpayers and ensure they are given credit for filing timely.”

APSU’s GIS Center and Oak Ridge Receive $400,000 Grant for Cell Phone App Program

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On a stormy Monday afternoon, while tornado sirens blared across the Austin Peay State University campus, Mike Wilson, manager of the school’s Geographic Information Systems Center, decided to talk about natural disasters.

“Suppose a tornado rips through here,” he said, knocking on his wood desk to ward off the suggestion. “If that happens, local officials will need to do a preliminary damage assessment. That’ll go to the state, and the governor will make a decision on whether to call in FEMA for a natural disaster. This app speeds that up.”

Wilson motioned to his Android mobile phone. A year ago, his office, in conjunction with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, developed an innovative new cell phone application known as the Disaster Mitigation and Recovery Kit (DMARK). The application allows emergency responders to document immediately any damage they come across following a disaster. «Read the rest of this article»
