Despite having two kids in Metro Nashville Public Schools, he owns a school for at-risk kids in New York and has had great success with the program. [WSMV]
  • But how do they choose? In this week’s installment of Channel 5′s “Crime of the Week” series someone robbed a liquor store and injured the cashier. Police are still looking for the suspect. Channel 5: Always giving criminals something to aspire to. [WTVF]
  • Dining In. Like the national chains, Nashville-based restaurants are feeling the squeeze from the waning economy. Nashvillest encourages you to eat local: Check out Nashville Originals for some of the best locally-owned dining destinations. [City Paper]
