Bright & Early: Save Us A Spot Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re happy to report that we haven’t witnessed any more fiery explosions around our Green Hills bunker, so our power is back on and we’re back in business! We’re also hoping that the lights are on over at the Apple Store in the Green Hills Mall for everyone crazy enough to stand in line for an iPhone. And speaking of camping out, Titans fans started pitching their tents outside of LP field yesterday to wait around for the box office’s Saturday morning opening. Props to all of you and your camp-out stamina–Not that iPhones and Titans tickets aren’t tempting, but we’re just way too lazy.

  • Vanderbilt makes honor roll. Congratulations to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which made the Honor Roll of Best Hospitals from U.S. Weekly News & World Report. Seven of their programs were ranked in the top 50 of their field including Heart, Cancer, and Respiratory Disorders.
  • Sending out an SOS. The response for help from the Metro Action Commission has been overwhelming, with nearly 2,000 low-income Nashvillians applying for bill assistance within the past week.
  • Bits & pieces. Monroe Harding’s Youth Connections program for kids aging out of foster care is opening a thrift store in South Nashville … Big Brother may start keeping an eye on Metro Government vehicles by installing GPS trackers … Steve Sullivan’s back still hurts and he’s not sure if he’ll be playing with the Preds this season.
