Good morning, Nashville. Governor Phil thinks Tennessee has great potential to become the next Silicon Valley–of green companies? You can’t blame us for being just a little bit skeptical, but the governor has been working hard to encourage businesses to use Energy Star-rated appliances, draw some alternative energy producers to the state, and figure out how to take advantage of the fact that Clarksville just landed that solar panel manufacturer. We say it’s a good start, but we’ve still got a long way to go.
- Congrats to Christian singers Angelo & Veronica, hailing from Franklin, have been asked to sing at the Celebration of Change concert at Constitution Hall in Washington DC as part of the days-long inaugural festivities for President-elect Barack Obama.
- The Metro Council voted to allocate $273,000 for the special English Only election on January 22nd. Almost two dozen members of the council decided not to vote to show their opposition to the measure. Councilman-At-Large Jerry Maynard was the only one who actually voted “no.”
- Bits & pieces. Predator Steve Sullivan is back on the ice after almost 2 years of rehab for a back injury … Charter schools are becoming more and more popular in Nashville … Nissan is cutting production even further, as well as temporary workers. No word on how much it will affect the Franklin headquarters.
