Federal Preservation Grant Applications now available from Tennessee Historical Commission


Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Historical Commission is accepting grant applications for historic preservation projects for the 2010-2011 fiscal year.  These grants, which are federally funded, will be available after October 1st, 2010.

The precise amount of funds available in Tennessee will not be known until Congress has passed the FY 2010-2011 budget.  However, it is expected to be approximately $400,000.  After review, applications will be rated and ranked.  Funding decisions will be made when the exact amount of the federal allocation is known.  This normally occurs by December but could be as late as spring 2011.

The selection process will emphasize projects conducting architectural, archaeological and historic site surveys.  Such projects are designed to identify and to record historic districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects built before 1960 that are significant to Tennessee’s history.  Surveys may be for a specific geographic area or for sites associated with themes or events significant in the state’s history, such as the development of railroads in the 19th century or the development of motor tourism in the 20th century.

Precautions urged to protect againest Illness spread by Mosquito Bites


Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Health warns that record floods in some parts of the state in early May followed by hotter than average temperatures could contribute to larger mosquito populations in the state and an increase in West Nile virus cases. TDOH urges Tennesseans to follow commonsense precautions to protect themselves from mosquito bites and the diseases they may carry.

“The best way to protect yourself from illnesses such as West Nile virus is to prevent mosquito bites,” said Health Commissioner Susan R. Cooper, MSN, RN. “There are simple precautions we can all take to reduce our contact with mosquitoes and our risk of bites.”

The Department of Health tests mosquitoes submitted from across the state to detect WNV. Identification of the virus in the mosquitoes allows the department to make people aware that WNV has been found in their area so they can take steps to protect themselves and their families. So far this year, one sample of mosquitoes in Shelby County has tested positive for WNV. «Read the rest of this article»
