Chatanooga's mayoral runoff race is picking up steam with less than one month from election day.

Dr. elenora woods is now the latest candidate to publicly endorse tim kelly.

Dr. woods credits kelly with being able to work with diverse communities in the past.

Kim white however is endorsed by chattanooga police officers and wants to attract and keep more first responders.

I'm fortunate to be the candidate left in the race for the runoff that is representing the rest of the candidates.

It's about us.

It really is about the vision that we share.

I've been a strong proponent since day one that we need to make sure that we pay our first responders competitive wages.

We're losing so many of them right now and we need to make sure that we provide more resources so we can have the best trained.

Runoff election day is april 13th.

Over the weekend bitcoin reached an all-time high of over 61 thousand dollars per unit.

Bitcoin is a type of digital currency.

Digital currency is nothing new.

Vp of barnett and company chris hopkins says each time we pay a bill online or use a credit card we are using a digital currency.

But for cryptocurrencie s like bitcoin, its value can change overnight.

Since this time last year, it is up in dollar terms 900%.

But we've also seen periods of time, where it's fallen 80 or 90%.

The value of our dollars remains relatively stable.

That's because it's backed by the us government.

With cryptocurrencies, it's not backed by anything.

Quite literally it's only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

Hopkins says blockchain technology has helped with the cryptocurrency boom.

It helps keep your information safe.

At howard, "the tiger way initiative," balances teacher and student accountability by celebrating victories big and small.

The state of tennessee is taking notice.

See how in tonight's.... what's right with our schools.

Natural sound: howard has reached silver level this year as a model of a demonstration school for positive behavior.

Leandrea: today is an amazing day for our students, our falco t, our staff and our community partners.

We are here celebrating our schoolwide approach to make sure every student has the wrap around services to be the best he or she can be here at the howard school.

Miller: so this year we are awarded 209 schools statewide that receive model school status.

64 schools state wide or at the silver level.

So howard is one of a very small percentage that has reached that level.

They developed the tiger way.

And this is something that the faculty took on.

And this is something they developed and to develop to grow their culture of positivity and proactive behavioral strategies.

Leandrea: some of those wraparound services that we have for our students include a clothing closet.

And we have students that are for whatever reason without any parts of the uniform or any clothing need.

We have so many community partners that have stepped up to make sure there is funding sources available to take care of those.

We have partners from the medical community that will come in and provide physicals and exams for our students.

We have people that make sure we have a food bank distribution every month.

We provide groceries to our families literally whatever we need to make sure our students have everything they need to do and excel academically.

We have those partners ready, they stand ready to help us at all times.

Dwayne: after meeting dr. mitchell and hearing about what was going on in the culture building here at howard high school we wanted to partner with them.

I think the old saying goes, you can't impact me until i know that you care about me is true right here in the school.

And i think the culture that they are building is the a pitta me of that and shows forth.

Gus: our church loves our city.

And the school has been in the city has a great history and it impacts so many not only the african-american kids but the hispanic and all kinds of kids.

But we just want to be a blessing as a church.

Leandrea: a lot of times i think the people think of the school house of being that place where it's about the academics and the standards.

But we know here at howard school it goes way beyond what happens in the classroom.

Yes they can excel academically and we expect that but we're also going to make sure we provide those services to address any needs that they may have that can be a barrier to that success.

Look for the icon that says what's right with our schools, and you'll find a link to post your story idea.

From action figures to arficial limbs, you can create almost anything on a 3-d printer these days.

Maybe even your house?

An idea that's time has come in tonight's consumer news.

But first, lisa robertson with an item that is sure to be hit in hone of my new favorite things., this is calming heat by sharper image.

And it does so much more than a regular heating pad, and at first, i thought "yeah, yeah, yeah," and then i tried it and i went "oh yeah, yeah, yeah."

So here's the deal.

Number one, it's a heating pad, right?

If you have aches and pains, you overdid it, your back, your shoulders, your knees, right?

There's nothing better than a heating pad, but most heating pads just kinda sit there.

This one drapes over, and it has a weight.

It's filled with these weighted clay beads so the heat really absorbs, and it just-- you feel the heat so much more.

It makes such a difference.

And i love that.

But it also has-- wait for it, 'cause here's the cool part... massage.

Now i have three different settings for heat, three different settings for massage, and by the way, automatic timer turnoffs for the massage and the heat so you're good with safety.

Because of the fact that it's a great size, when you put it over your shoulder, it covers a lot of your shoulder.

If you put it on your back, it covers a lot of your back.

When i put it on my lap, down my legs when i'm watching tv, it covers a lot of space.

So this is one of those things that can just be calming and soothing at the end of a long day.

Or just because it's that zen moment, when it's cold outside and you're toasty, warm, and massaged inside.

It's calming heat by sharper image, i love the concept, and by the way, 20% off on localsteals.com.

"you're watching news 12 at 11.

Your news now."

Prices for new homes are on the rise.

But there's a new kind of home going on the market that some say could change that trend.

Michael george introduces us to "3-d printed homes".

In tonight's consumer watch..

This ordinary looking home could lead to a revolution in real estate.

Not in the design.

But how it was built.

"you are sitting in a 3-d printed, 1900 square foot structure."

Kirk anderson of construction tech company s-q-4-d showed us this long island model home that was made with a 3-d printer.

"we should be able to do our part of the build in 8 days or less."

So, what does it mean to "print" a house?

Well, a robot stacks layers upon layers of concrete- literally building from the ground up.

S-q-4-d is constructing a similar residence nearby that's already for sale.

The 3 bedroom, 14-hundred square foot house is listed for 299- thousand dollars.

Homes of comparable size in the area come with a price tag around 100-thousand higher and often much more.

Of course, the printer can't do all the work.

It can build about 40% of the structure, and then workers have to do the rest.

But even that 40% can drastically lower construction costs.

"this process can save you about 20 to 30 percent on an overall bill."

Other home builders are using 3-d printers.

The company icon in texas works with non-profits to provide low income housing.

Mighty buildings in california offers homes that range from studios to 3 bedrooms. the company's co-founder says doing it in a warehouse gives them flexibility.

"we've developed a unique technology s-q-4-d claims they've already received more than a thousand offers to purchase the home.

A possible indication consumers are ready to accept this new dimension in construction.

Michael george, cbs news, visible is wireless that doesn't play games.

The tennessee titans are making serious moves in free agency today.

Tennessee agreed to a deal with former colts defensive lineman denico autry tonight.

The boys in blue also bringing in linebacker bud dupree.

The former pittsburgh steeler will get more than 16 million dollars a year -- and provide added strength off the edge.

Dupree comes to tennessee after suffereing a torn acl last season.

Before that, he recorded 11 and a half sacks in 2019.

Titans are still searching for replacements on offense... tennessee let tight end jonnu smith and receiver corey davis go today.

The jets snagged davis with a 3- year, 37 and a half million dollar deal tonight.

Meanwhile, smith heads to new england with a four-year, 50 million dollar contract.

The lady vols can officially put on their dancing shoes after tonight's tournament selection show.

Tennessee remains the only program to make every ncaa tournament.

Lady vols get the three seed in the river walk region.

And will play familiar foe middle tennessee state.

Game tips at 2 pm on sunday.

Lady vols share the same side of the bracket as number one uconn and number 2 baylor.

The best season in cleveland basketball history ended in disappointment last year -- when the pandemic canceled the state tournament.

Now cleveland can write off last year's unfinished frustrations with another trip to the the glass house this week.

Rick nyman has more on the raiders resilience.

Covid canceled the raiders post season last year, and it haunted the raiders to start this year.

Tucker:"i missed almost 40 days of school because of covid.

Our first ten games we never had our starting five, and to see where these kids are at now.

I mean.

It's.

Get a little emotional man.

I don't think people realize what these guys have been through."

When cleveland got healthy, they started winning with good defense and good shooting.

Tucker:"our guys get up over 100 shots in practice a day."

Mcgowan:"we just play with our heart.

Just give it everything we've got.

We don't care how big you are or how small you are.

We're just going to do what we do every game.

Just go at you."

Tucker:"we kept ove 15 teams under 50 this year."

The raiders program is on a roll.

They made state as well two years ago, but they lost to a team with a kid that's now in the nba.

7-footer james wiseman.

Hurst:"there was a moment where there was a loose ball, and it kicked to the top of the key.

Their guard dribbled it to the sideline, and he just tossed it up out of no where.

I can remember just turning around and watching him just catch it and slam it and being like yeah, there's just nothing we can do about that."

Tucker:"my mom is a big james wiseman fan ever since she saw him play against us.

She has been one of his biggest fans.

She's like oh, watching golden state play.

James wiseman is playing."

Hopefully the raiders will give reggie's mother a lot to cheer about this week in murfreesboro.

Hurst:"but i'm looking to win three games in murfreesboro and get that state championship."

That's it for sports.
