Police out in Franklin held meetings yesterday to talk to parents about the big gang problem we apparently have. There’s no reason to panic, they say, but they’re trying to cut it off early. With summer vacation just around the corner, your kids may be looking at a lot of downtime. Trying to find for a place for them to stay out of trouble? Check out Rocketown’s summer programs. We at Nashvillest have a special place in our hearts for the folks at Rocketown. If you’ve got some free time on your hands, you might even think about helping out.
- That’s So Punny. News Channel 4 says, “Public Works to Chop Grass Cutters,” pun totally intended. They’re so clever. No, really- we love you, Channel 4. We wouldn’t trade you for the world.
- Bring It On. Watch the final round of auditions for next season’s Titans cheerleaders at City Hall tonight. Nashville’s very own Kiefer Sutherland look-alike, Phil Vassar, will be among the panel of celebrity judges (seriously, the resemblance is uncanny). Tickets are only 10 bucks and doors at 5:30, auditions at 6:30. We’re letting you know early since we know you’ll need time to clear out your calendars.
- Bits And Pieces. Coach topples little league softball umpire, team of 10-year olds kicked out of league … Mayor faces tough questions about Metro Public School dropout rates on the eve of State of the Metro address … Grab a Free Haagen-Dazs cone (just the new vanilla honey-bee flavor) after work today from 4pm to 8pm, but you’ll have to head all the way out to Opry Mills.
