But not whiskey — coffee.

The Lynchburg, Tennessee, distillery announced a partnership with World of Coffee to release Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey Coffee. On its website, Jack Daniel’s notes that the coffee will be available in an 8.8-ounce collectible tin for $21.95 and a 1.5-ounce bag for $6.95. The coffee can only be bought at the distillery’s online store or in person at the Lynchburg Hardware & General Store in the downtown square.

The coffee, dubbed as “100 percent Arabica,” will be ground and available in regular and decaffeinated brands. While the coffee will be "infused" with the whiskey, the drink will be non-alcoholic.

Jack Daniel's has produced "gourmet" coffee in 1.5-ounce bags in the past, but the venture with World of Coffee represents a more mainstream push.

  • Trial is set to begin this week for a Mexican man who set off a national immigration debate after he shot and killed a woman on a popular San Francisco pier.  Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 54, acknowledges shooting Kate Steinle in the back while she was walking with her father on the downtown pier July 1, 2015.  But Zarate said the shooting was accidental. He said he was handling a handgun he found wrapped in a T-shirt under a bench on the pier when it accidentally fired. The handgun belonged to a Bureau of Land Management ranger who reported that it was stolen from his parked car in San Francisco a week before Steinle was shot.  The San Francisco district attorney’s office has charged Zarate with second-degree murder, which could result in a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in prison. Assistant District Attorney Diana Garcia declined to comment.  Zarate’s attorney Matt Gonzalez said his client didn’t realize the bundle he picked up contained a firearm, and it went off as he unwrapped the T-shirt.   “He didn’t know it was a gun when it fired,” Gonzalez said. “It all happens in a span of three seconds.” Prosecutors charge otherwise, alleging Zarate recklessly pointed the gun at people on the pier.   The suspect originally went by the name Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez when he was arrested. But his lawyer Matt Gonzalez said he now prefers to be called by his birth name of Zarate.

  • Nearly one-third of American adolescents and adults are affected by anxiety, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. It’s the most common mental health disorder in the country. And when it comes to teens, severe anxiety is becoming more crippling each year. In fact, over the last decade, anxiety has surpassed depression as the most common reason college students seek counseling services, the New York Times reported. The data comes from the American College Health Association’s 2016 survey of students about the previous year. Sixty-two percent of undergraduate students in the survey reported “overwhelming anxiety,” a significant increase from 50 percent in 2011. A separate survey from the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, asks incoming college freshmen whether they “felt overwhelmed by all I had to do” during the previous year. In 1985, when the institute began surveying students on the issue, 18 percent said they felt overwhelmed. By 2010, 29 percent said they did. And in 2016, the number jumped to 41 percent. And since 2012, the Washington Post reported, the Boys Town National Hotline has seen a 12 percent spike in teens reaching out via calls, texts, chats and emails about their struggles with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. » RELATED: Teens and the distorted reality of social media The rate of hospital admissions for suicidal teenagers has also doubled over the past decade. Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mirrored a national trend in suicide rates across the board. » RELATED: The suicide rate for teen girls is the highest it’s been in 40 years — Is social media to blame? But the research found suicide rates among 15- to 19-year-old girls doubled between 2007 and 2015, reaching a 40-year high. That means for every 100,000 American girls in 2015, five committed suicide. For teen boys, the rate rose by more than 30 percent. Anxiety, along with depression, cuts across all demographics, including both privileged and disadvantaged teenagers. But privileged teens are among the most emotionally distressed youth in America, Arizona State University psychology professor Suniya Luthar told the New York Times. » RELATED: How to keep your kids safe on social media  “These kids are incredibly anxious and perfectionistic,” she said, but there’s “contempt and scorn for the idea that kids who have it all might be hurting ... there’s always one more activity, one more A.P. class, one more thing to do in order to get into a top college. Kids have a sense that they’re not measuring up. The pressure is relentless and getting worse.” But helicopter parents aren’t always to blame. Many students internalize the anxiety and put the pressure on themselves, Madeline Levine, co-founder of Challenge Success, a nonprofit aimed at improving student well-being, told the Times. » RELATED: The more social media you use, the lonelier you feel, study says Another expert, psychiatrist Stephanie Eken, said despite the cultural differences, there’s a lot of overlap among teens regarding what makes them anxious. Eken mentions factors range from school, family conflicts, what food to eat, diseases, how they’re perceived by friends and notably in the last few years, Eken told the Times, to a rising fear about terrorism.  “They wonder about whether it’s safe to go to a movie theater,” she said. A lack of close, meaningful relationships is also a major factor. » RELATED: Should kids be watching new Netflix series on teen suicide?  Experts have long said hormonal, mental and physical changes associated with puberty may leave teens especially vulnerable to anxiety, depression and other mental health disorders. And social media doesn’t help, Eken said, adding that teens are always comparing themselves with their peers, which leaves them miserable. When Times reporter Benoit Denizet-Lewis visited Mountain Valley, a nonprofit that offers teens need-based assistance for $910 a day, a college student at the facility said, “I don’t think we realize how much it’s affecting our moods and personalities,” he said. “Social media is a tool, but it’s become this thing that we can’t live without but that’s making us crazy.” » RELATED: This social media platform is the worst for cyberbullying  But social media can also be used to “help increase connections between people,” CDC suicide expert Thomas Simon told CNN in August. “It's an opportunity to correct myths about suicide and to allow people to access prevention resources and materials.” Still, Simon acknowledged that cyberbullying can greatly impact vulnerable youth. How parents can help According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 80 percent of kids with a diagnosable anxiety disorder are not getting treatment. And anxiety disorders are highly treatable. While anxiety can be a normal reaction to stressful environments and situations, there are specific symptoms associated with anxiety disorders. Generally, someone with anxiety disorder would have fear or anxiety that is out of proportion to the situation or inappropriate for his or her age. The anxiety would also affect normal day-to-day function. Two questions parents should ask themselves: Is my child more shy or anxious than others his or her age? Is my child more worried than other children his or her age? » RELATED: Nighttime cellphone usage linked to poor mental health among teens According to Lynn Miller, an associate professor at the University of British Columbia, those questions can help predict a child’s potential of developing an anxiety disorder. If you notice overwhelming feelings of anxiety in your child, the ADAA suggests seeking help and talking to a professional. While antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications can offer relief from symptoms, they’re not treated as cures. Instead, talk therapy is often recommended. More tips from ADAA.org. Here are some additional tips to manage anxiety and stress from the ADAA:
  • sold at Walmart, Trader Joe's and Target over concerns of Listeria monocytogenes, . The company said “a single positive” test result in random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency sparked the decision to issue the recall notice. Listeria infection can cause fever, diarrhea, flu-like symptoms and even miscarriages. 'As an owner of this company and a mom, providing safe and healthy foods to our consumers and their families is always our top priority,' Gina Nucci, director of corporate marketing, said in a release. The recall includes Brussels sprouts, broccoli and vegetable medley products distributed throughout the United States and Canada with “best if used by” dates from Oct. 11 to 20. Affected items include: Aldi supermarkets also issued recall notices for Mann products.
  • Climatologists say “La Niña” conditions will likely prevail this winter, meaning colder than usual water temperatures in the Pacific Ocean. For parts of the country, primarily the northeast, that will likely mean a cooler, wetter winter. But for Tulsa and much of the southwest, the opposite holds true - La Niña usually brings warmer, drier air. Steve Piltz is Meteorologist-in-Charge for the National Weather Service Office in Tulsa. He tells KRMG the long range forecast for the upcoming winter takes that La Niña effect into consideration. “Overall, the snowfall pattern should be below normal, and normal for Tulsa is nine or ten inches, so we could still have a six, seven inch snowfall,” Piltz said. But, he warns, “normal in Oklahoma is kind of hard to come by,” and because the state is far inland and subject to complex weather factors, it’s hard to make an accurate prediction. That’s especially true for long range forecasts. “For us, it’s a little more iffy,” Piltz said, “and you always take the seasonal forecast with a grain of salt.”
