Good morning, Nashville. Some folks in South Nashville were kind of grossed out when the creek behind their home turned bright green last night. Though the Nashville Fire Department seems to think the “unidentified substance” in the water is some sort of pond dye or food coloring, locals are still concerned that it looks a little too much like antifreeze. And judging by the photos, we can’t say we blame them! We’re guessing someone will be out to test the water this morning and hopefully it’s harmless. Or if it isn’t, we blame the TVA.
- Silver lining. The tanking economy might actually be good for something: Killing plans for Bible Park. After the latest proposal was rejected by the Lebanon City Council last week, developers have gone back to the drawing board. They’re still shopping around for more sites in Wilson County, but fear that they might have to abandon ship if the economy keeps declining.
- Jobs! If you’re still wandering around jobless in a few months (heaven forbid), you may be able to find a job with Metro’s water and sewer people. They’re probably going to raise our rates soon, but they’ll be using all the extra cash to hire more people to revamp our city’s decrepit water and sewage systems.
- Bits & pieces. Apparently cutting 44 majors and $19 million could shape MTSU’s future. Who knew? … While we were getting our CRS on, our ‘Noogan neighbors were out planting a bunch of trees … Okay, seriously. Can we stop with the Molotov cocktails already? … A big announcement from President Obama today about stem cell research has the folks at Vandy pretty excited.
