Good morning, Nashville. Today marks the one year anniversary of all those crazy tornadoes that swept across the country last year and killed almost 60 people, over half of which were in Tennessee. The Tennessean gives us a little blast from the past with a couple of slideshows, a timeline of the events as they unfolded, a roundup of news stories from a year ago today, and some updates on how those communities are still recovering.
- Thanks a lot, Madoff. Frist Center for the Visual Arts has probably taken a $1 million hit thanks to one Mr. Bernard Madoff billion fraudulent investment scheme and his $50. The Frist Foundation took an even bigger hit at $13 million.
- Oh happy day. We want to send out a big congratulations to some of the younger athletes in town who had a pretty exciting day yesterday. Wednesday was Signing Day for a number of area high school students, meaning that they signed on with college sports teams ranging from Notre Dame to UT.
- Bits & pieces. According to White House reports, the stimulus package we’ve all been hearing about could save as many as 75,000 jobs in Tennessee … Two middle Tennessee kids who were kidnapped 20 years ago were found alive in California this week … Mount LeConte in Great Smokey Mountains National Park clocked in at minus 22 degrees last night … Ol’ Boots Del Biaggio pleaded guilty yesterday for scamming investors for upwards of $100M.
