MT. JULIET -- The fate of a local physician recently indicted for the murder of her child stemming from child abuse was set to be decided late Tuesday as a State board met to hear details of a consent order and determine her licensure status.
According to Shelley Walker with the Tennessee Department of Health, Dr. Deborah Mark, a pediatrician who was criminally charged with first degree murder in the death of her adopted daughter on July 12, agreed to surrender her license to practice medicine until the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners determine her license status at a meeting Tuesday. Neither Dr. Mark nor her attorney were expected to attend.
Shelley said the board's discussion and final decision on the order “could take place any time between 1 p.m., when members return from lunch break, and the end of the board's business day Tuesday, which could be as late as 6 p.m.” Also, no one with the Department of Health or the Board of Medical Examiners were available for interviews since this disciplinary matter and the criminal case are on-going.

Wilson County voters are going to the three early voting sites and casting their ballots, and doing a bit better at it than our neighbors in Davidson County. Early voting began Friday, July 16 for the Primaries and General Election that will be held Aug. 5.
Lynn Harris, administrator of elections for the Wilson County Election Commission, said through Monday night there were 1,556 votes cast.
“We’re doing alright, more than Davidson County,” she said. Harris noted she talked Tuesday with Ray Barrett, administrator of elections for the Metro Nashville-Davidson County Election Commission, and he said 1,098 early votes had been cast in Nashville through Monday. Presently, Metro only has one site available for early voting and will have additional sites open beginning next Monday.
Middle Tennessee Electric crews will be working to improve electric service in Lebanon July 22-23, which will require outages in parts of the city.

Should weather become inclement, the work will be postponed until July 29.

Fire safety proposals and grass control led Tuesday night’s Lebanon City Council meeting as councilors not only listened to complaints but expressed some of their own to Commissioner of Public Works Jeff Baines.
For years, city and county officials and those seeking office have discussed having a unified fire safety division, and Ward 6 Councilor Kathy Warmath informed council of the details of the new proposal for unification of the Lebanon and Mt. Juliet fire divisions.
Warmath met with John Jewel, director of Wilson County Emergency Management Association, to discuss some of the finer details.
