Good morning, Nashville. The season of high school graduations is upon us and what an eventful season it is, though not as joyous as you might think. A man with a loaded gun was arrested outside of McGavock High School’s graduation over the weekend, a Glencliff High School senior prank ended in an arrest on Sunday night, and a Rutherford County teen was injured after falling off of the hood of a car during a graduation celebration yesterday. WKRN does bring us one happy story, though, where our new favorite Nashville blog That Is Messed Up helped one crime-stopping high school senior make it to his ceremony. Local media, 1; juvenile court system, 0.
- Comcastic. For the first time since it started in 2002, Bonnaroo will be televised nationwide on Fuse TV, which sucks for us because we don’t get that channel Nashville unless we have satellite or digital cable. We really just want to see Kanye.
- But who will trim our hedges? Good news for Metro employees: Those 200 layoffs we promised earlier are down to 80 and still dropping, which means we may not lose our grass cutters after all. Whew.
- Bits & Pieces. The Sounds are on a roll, taking down Memphis last night 7-3 … East Nashville Farmer’s Market opens tomorrow … More beautiful weather in store for Wednesday … Urban Residents Association worried about more crime downtown.
