MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WEST) -- Walking in to the livestock barn at Middle Tennessee State University, Gene Glasscock and Noquah Elisi sat in worn lawn chairs with their dog Bell in front of their home for the next few months.
Elisi, 61, playfully swatted at Glassclock, 79, as they joked about their time on the road as newly wedded couple.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The truck-stop company owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam may have put the worst behind it after federal attorneys agreed not to prosecute Pilot Flying J for cheating customers.
In an agreement with prosecutors, the nation's largest diesel retailer acknowledges that employees cheated trucking companies out of promised fuel rebates and discounts. Prosecutors said Monday that Pilot has agreed to pay a $92 million penalty, which is within the range of what the company would pay if convicted at trial.
