Feb 28, 2023 at 04:33 pm by Voice Wire

Rutherford County - TN - The Rutherford Opioid Board (ROB) is ready to distribute funds to local Community Partners including nonprofit charitable organizations, any chamber of commerce exempt from IRS Code 501(c)(6), or any nonprofit civic organization to support and provide services to combat the opioid epidemic within Rutherford County, TN.  Successful grant recipients will receive funds from $500,000 which is a part of the $26 billion National Opioid Settlement.  Funds from the settlement are expected to be paid over 18 years. 

ROB is comprised of Commissioner Craig Harris, Chairman, Commissioners Robert Peay, Jr. and Pettus Read, Superintendent of the Rutherford County Correctional Work Center, William C Cope, Director of Rutherford County Probation and Recovery Services, Alissa Phillips, and Recovery Court Case Manager Supervisor Lori Flippo. 

Harris stated, “Opioid deaths in Rutherford County have risen so high, it is apparent the opioid epidemic has affected every citizen in some way.  I want to be able to bring awareness, education, and recovery to the community in order to put an end to what we are going through.”

Peay reflected, “Our county and our communities are under attack by a pestilence that is killing people and destroying lives.  Follow the Rutherford Opioid Board as we strive to educate our friends and families about the dangers of opioids and how to eliminate this problem.” 

Grant funds may be used to combat substance abuse, prevent overdoses and death, and to educate the public.  The goals and objectives prioritized by ROB are education and assistance outreach, onsite services to assist citizens who require support to access and apply for opioid and substance abuse treatment, services to prevent opioid misuse and effects on children and families and services and programs to promote rehabilitation of the homeless affected by opioid addiction.  Grant applicants must focus on at least one of the goals and objectives prioritized by ROB. 

Not for profit organizations may acquire grant application materials and information at  

The committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 am in room 205 of the historic Rutherford County Courthouse.

Hello guys, if you want to upgrade your credit score or have an item removed from your credit report permanently, I recommend you contact CLEVER CREDIT FIX. Back in 2021 I had a major setback, if you think your credit was bad mine was terrible. I also had evictions that made getting an apartment difficult. My husband has a condition that I needed a loan but couldn’t, he got seriously ill, I needed help in order to save my husband’s life. I was asking questions on how to raise my credit score, but the answer I got did not look like what could get my credit score up in near time. I got a notification from a blog and lots of testimonies about Clever Credit Fix. I got him via: CLEVERCREDITFIX1@GMAIL.COM in a few days he deleted all negative items and increased my score to 790. I sincerely recommend him. It's worthy to know that I was not induced in any way to write this here.
A week ago, I mistakenly sent Bitcoins to the wrong wallet address and I thought I had lost it all but WARDRIVERS CYBER was able to recover my Bitcoins in a matter of hours. At first, I have always thought it was impossible to trace and retrieve bitcoins once it is released but after my encounter with WARDRIVERS CYBER, I can boldly confirm that Bitcoins and any cryptocurrencies can be traced and fully recovered only with the right information. I’m thankful for the service of WARDRIVERS CYBER and for helping me recover my Bitcoins. I highly recommend their services to everyone out there who needs to recover their Bitcoins or have access to their wallets. CONTACT INFO: WARDRIVERSCYBERSERVICE@TECHIE . COM

I am Shane. I’m delighted to share with you guys my life changing experience. In the year 2021, I had an eviction and late payments due to my dad's health challenge, we literally spent all that we had on medical bills . This affected my credit report negatively. Even after clearing my debts, I discovered that these negative items were still on my reports. My credit score dropped to 480. When we relocated to Clark Hill from Indiana, I had all my debts cleared but discovered that these negative items were still on my credit report. Because of that, I was deprived of access to a car loan for easy access to my place of work in Indiana. I was quite confused, not knowing what to do. I knew I needed to work on my credit report but never knew how to go about it. It was then that I started sourcing where I could get help. I contacted my colleague at work to see if he had any idea on what I should do about the situation. He then suggested that I hire a hacker. He introduced me to the hacker who helped him upgrade his credit report. For some time, I had doubts, but when I could no longer bear the stress of having to go by taxi, I had no choice other than to give it a try. So I hired the Clever Credit Fix which my colleague suggested to me. He took my details and did his job. My poor credit records and negative items were all cleared, boosting my score to an excellent 805 (Equifax). With this, I now own my dream car. I can’t express how much I appreciate the work of Mr Clever. He is the best I have seen. You can contact him via his
