Sign petition and support tag for fallen officers

Memorials for fallen law enforcement officers only shine briefly, but there’s a new petition circulating that will let police supporters celebrate our fallen heroes year-round.

Melissa Bero of Bartlett is gathering signatures on a petition to have a fallen officer memorial license plate issued for vehicles in the state of Tennessee.

When she reaches 500 signatures, she plans to present it to a state congressman. As of Tuesday afternoon, the petition had 316 supporters.

Murder takes center stage for Sept. 10-13

The season-opener for the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center — “An Evening with Jim Brickman” on Aug. 29 — is now sold out. But never fear, because BPACC has another attraction lined up just a couple of weeks later.

BPACC’s professional theater ensemble will have four performances of “A Party to Murder on Sept. 10-13. The characters come in secret on Halloween to play a murder mystery game at a rustic island cottage. Secret passageways, incriminating letters, hidden compartments, bodies in the window seat and a twenty five year old unsolved mystery twist and turn toward the unexpected and terrifying conclusion.

Performances will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 10-12 and 2:30 p.m. Sept. 13.

Of course you want tickets! They are $10. Call the box office at (901) 385-6440 or go online to
