Bright & Early: Cops And Robbers Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Metro is looking into a $500,000 jewelry heist that happened Tuesday night. A salesman in town from New York had just pulled into the parking lot of the Quality Inn on Brick Church Pike when the robbers sliced his tires, smashed in his windows, and ran off with the briefcase containing $500K worth of diamonds and jewelry. Before he had even gotten out of his car.

  • Green Hills murder. The wife of the Green Hills lawyer who was found strangled in his Bowling Avenue home last week was arrested for three counts of violating protection orders for her children. Police haven’t named her a suspect in the murder of her husband, but everyone keeps implying it.
  • Music City Star goes broke. Things continue to go bad for the Music City Star commuter train, as the Regional Transportation Association is now predicting they’ll be $1.7M in the hole by next year. And since we received federal funding for it, the FTA sent a letter to RTA saying that RTA will owe them $30M if they can’t fix their financial woes.
  • Bits & pieces. Nashville community pulls together to help Fisk University avoid financial disaster … Ricky Skaggs covers his own songs bluegrass-style for new album … Prepare to see the “green” taken out of Green Hills … The Tennessean wants to hear about your experience with prayer.
