What Is Open During Government Shutdown?
AP/Peg Broadcasting News Sunday January 21, 2018

Now that the government has shutdown, many are concerned just how it will affect their daily lives. For most of us, the repercussions will not be felt immediately. The air traffic control system, food inspection, Medicare, veterans' health care and many other essential government programs will run as usual. The Social Security Administration will not only send out benefits but will also continue to take applications - though replacements for lost Social Security cards could have to wait. The Postal Service, which is self-funded, will keep delivering the mail. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will continue to respond to disasters. The Interior Department says national parks and other public lands will remain as accessible as possible. The Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo will stay open through the weekend but close Monday. The shutdown means you may have trouble getting a passport, receiving help from the IRS, and those who are paid by the federal government like U.S. service women and men may not get a paycheck if the shutdown is prolonged.

The National Park Service and the Tennessee Highway Patrol are just now releasing information on an amazing rescue that occurred last weekend in Scott County. Officials say that on Saturday, January 13, a husband and wife, along with their dog, got lost while hiking in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. The couple called their daughter on Saturday night and told her they could not find their vehicle. After spending a night in the woods in sub-freezing temperatures, they managed to call their daughter again on Sunday morning. The Tennessee Highway Patrol began a helicopter search over the area and about an hour and a half later, they located the woman and the dog. She told the searchers she became separated from her husband. He was located shortly after laying on the ground and barely moving. The wife was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening, cold weather related injuries, including frostbite. She is expected to recover. The husband was flown to The University of Tennessee Medical Center in serious condition. (Photo courtesy tn.gov)
