Metro department heads wrung their hands over Mayor Bill Purcell’s request that they cut their budgets by up to 10 percent. The mayor said he was merely anticipating tight finances. In a memo, Finance Director David Manning told the department heads, ”In some cases, it would be reasonable for you to propose eliminating a program or function in its entirety.“
Robert Glen Coe rattled his chains and screamed and cursed in the courtroom, but a judge ruled he’s sane enough to be executed on March 23 for murdering 8-year-old Cary Ann Medlin in 1979. The Tennessee Probation and Parole Board, meanwhile, granted another condemned prisoner, Philip Ray Workman, a hearing later this month on his request for clemency from Gov. Don Sundquist. Workman is to die on April 6 for the murder of a Memphis policeman in 1981.

Jo Ann Graves of Gallatin said.
