A Republican candidate for the state Senate last week found himself running away from the charge that he is close to GOP Gov. Don Sundquist, who, by virtue of his income tax advocacy, has become this election year’s Darth Vader among candidates in his own party. Howard Wall, who is running to replace retiring state Sen. Andy Womack, a Democrat from Murfreesboro, denied the Democratic claim. “They (Democrats) have decided that, since Sunny is the most unpopular governor in the United States, with over a 60-percent negative rating, that their best bet is to connect Howard and other candidates to him,” Wall’s campaign director told The Knoxville News-Sentinel.
Inspired by a series of recent dead-end efforts to save the life of death row inmate Philip Workmanmost recently a federal appeals court ruling denying an evidentiary hearing for the convicted murdererseveral statewide groups have formed a coalition: Tennesseans for a Moratorium on Executions. Workman’s life is now in the hands of Gov. Don Sundquist, who is being urged by Workman’s advocates and anti-death-penalty activists to grant clemency. New evidence Workman’s attorneys want to present apparently shows that the bullet that killed the Memphis police officer in the wake of Workman’s scuttled 1981 robbery couldn’t have come from his gun. State Attorney General Paul Summers has said that even if the bullet didn’t come from Workman, the crime led to the death of the police officer and is still a capital offense.
Schools get cops
Responding quickly to complaints that eight Metro middle schools were losing a police presence this semester, Police Chief Emmett Turner borrowed and reassigned personnel to keep the schools happy. The officers will provide security to the schools and will teach classes to combat youth gangs and violence.
