Good morning, Nashville. We hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather yesterday, because it’s heading out today. Strong to severe storms are expected this afternoon and evening, and there’s still a chance of tornadoes, similar to the weather we experienced on Saturday. So batten down the hatches and keep an ear out for those sirens! We can haz sun plz?
- Kidnapped? J/K! Two kids from Hermitage were thought to have been kidnapped after a violent incident in their home, but it turns out that the folks who snatched them away were actually friends of the family. That’s a happy ending if we’ve ever heard one!
- See Stimulus Run. Food stamp recipients saw an increase in their allotted benefits yesterday, as a result of Tennessee’s stimulus check. Benefits will increase anywhere up to $80 per month, depending on the family size and income.
- Utility bill bill. We’re sort of tired of seeing our utility bills ride the rollercoaster of rate hikes, but it probably won’t stop anytime soon. A new bill introduced in Tennessee legislation that intends to encourage gas conservation could actually make it easier for our gas companies to raise their rates. Oh boy!
- Bits & pieces. The ever-painful Metro budgeting process has begun … Um, we’ll let you guys check this one out for yourselves … The US won the big soccer game that clogged up traffic downtown all night!
