Silver Alert Law; Local Holiday Retail Sales
Broadcast Date: December 13, 2009
We all know what Amber Alerts are. If a child goes missing, a network of law enforcement and media gear up to alert the community of the child's disappearance.
But what about a Silver Alert? Chances are you have never heard of that. It works like an Amber Alert, but in this case the missing is an elderly person.
One of the sponsors of Tennessee's Silver Alert Law is State Rep. Jim Hackworth of Anderson County.
In this week's second segment, Knoxville Chamber Partnership Chairman Michael Strickland shares his insight into local holiday retail sales and the economy.
Then in the Final Word, Cortney Piper, of SRW and Associates, and Craig Griffith, who is a former city public affairs director and now communications director with Mercy Hospitals, offer their views of recent news.
