Happy Hour: First You Take The Salt…

  • Well, Franklin failed to earn the Tequila Capitol of the World title yesterday, drawing a few hundred shy of their goal at Sol’s Cinco de Mayo shindig. Maybe next year! [WKRN]
  • Two schools in Cookeville were evacuated after homemade soda bottle bombs went off in trashcans in both schools. Fortunately no one was hurt, but several major exams were interrupted by the explosions. [WKRN]
  • Red light cams in Clarksville that were installed five days ago have already caught and ticketed almost 500 speedy Clarksvillians. Time to rethink your driving strategies? [WSMV]
  • If you’re a die-hard Titans fan and you absolutely cannot wait for football season to start up (only four more months!) you can check out some training footage and interviews over at the Tennessean. [Tennessean]
  • Though only two cases of Hamthrax have been confirmed here in Tennessee, officials have brought the testing in-house so we shouldn’t have to wait a week for results anymore. Which means you shouldn’t freak out if there are suddenly a bunch more confirmed cases because it just means we’re getting the results more quickly. [WZTV]
  • A federal judge ruled that Wilson County Schools could not, in fact, make kids cover up religious phrases on school posters like they did last fall for the “See You At The Pole” prayer event. [WSMV]
