    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - The parents of a Smith County toddler who was found dead in the family's septic tank in August of 2012 were back in court Friday for a pre-trial. A trial for 26 total charges of child endangerment pertaining to David and Sabrina Kimbley's five living children is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 3. That trial is not related to an ongoing investigation into Jake Kimbley's death in which prosecutors have said David and Sabrina Kimbley are suspects.

Assistant District Attorney Cynthia Kent's first matter for the hearing was a newly filed notice of joinder involving allegations against both parents pertaining to the oldest of the five living children. The motion simply asks that both parents be tried together rather than separately. Kent said the state is not currently pursuing joinder in charges involving the other four children.

Sabrina's attorney, Reeve Jackson expressed concern over the last-minute filing, saying he had not had time to consider whether it would be appropriate to respond with a motion to sever. That motion would prevent joining the cases.

David's attorney, Zachary Davis, agreed with Jackson's reservations.

Judge Jack Skeen Jr. Granted Kent's motion, saying he would entertain a potential motion to sever at a later date.

Kent asked that the charges pertaining to the oldest trial be designated to be tried first. Skeen agreed.

Skeen set another pre-trial hearing on Friday, May 17 at 8:30am.
