Baiting Program Expanding in Tennessee This Year to Prevent Raccoon Rabies
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Health is working with the United States Department of Agriculture to help prevent rabies by distributing oral rabies vaccine for wild raccoons along Tennessee’s borders with Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
The annual baiting program administered by USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Wildlife Services, began in Tennessee September 27th, 2014.
“Control of raccoon rabies is vital to public health, as reducing rabies in wildlife helps prevent transmission to people, pets and livestock,” said Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. ”We are pleased to be part of this important and effective program.”

Clarksville, TN – The economic data were mixed. The estimate of second quarter gross domestic product (GDP) growth was revised upward from 4.2% to 4.6%, as expected.
Existing home sales fell in August, reflecting a decline in speculators (i.e., fewer all-cash transactions). New home sales surged 18.9%, but that likely reflects the usual volatility in the data.
Durable goods orders fell 18%, reflecting an unwinding of July’s sharp spike in civilian aircraft orders. The three-month averages of shipments and orders for nondefense capital goods (ex-aircraft) suggest good strength in business fixed investments.
