Morristown food truck launches fundraiser after fire

(WBIR-Morristown) A Morristown business on the cusp of celebrating its one-year anniversary is now taking steps to repair damage from flames that destroyed the food truck about a week ago.

Crazy Good Burgers & Fries used to park its food truck along the town's main stretch, Monday through Saturday.

"It's been great. We've grown, we were about to open up a second truck, we were probably about a month away," said Corbin Trent, the owner.

Those plans were put on hold when flames sparked on Friday, May 10th.

German family living in TN denied asylum based on homeschooling

A German family living in Morristown is denied asylum in the United States.

The Romeike family came to the US from Germany in 2008, after they say they were criminally prosecuted for homeschooling their children.

A judge granted them asylum in 2010, but the decision was over turned by the Board of Immigration Appeals in 2012.

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled to uphold the appeal this week.

The court said that the Romeikes had not made a sufficient case that persecution related to homeschooling fits within the US laws on asylum.

I also learned from Mike DelVisco that fish can actually be moody. We actually watched a fish turn his nares up at us while on his bass bed. Seriously, I learned more about fishing than any class could have probably taught me.
