(Rutherford County, TN) On Wednesday's Action Line with host Scott Walker, he was joined by Rutherford County School Resource Officers Sam Trubee and Sgt. Dustin Cox.  Some of the discussion focused on school traffic in the morning and afternoon, students using cellphones to communicate threats and to bully other students and more.

They also covered the important topic of an upcoming event to raise money to take a number of students shopping for school clothes. The students that are picked to go on a school clothes shopping trip are hand selected with the help of school guidance counselors who know firsthand how some families are struggling to make ends meet.
