Bright & Early: Light At The End Of The Tunnel Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’ve been following the story about Perry County’s outrageous unemployment rate for a while now, and Governor Phil is headed down there today to announce the creation of 1,500 new jobs that will hopefully help get the community back on its feet. Sen. Roy Herron, who has represented the area since 2002, released a statement yesterday detailing the history of layoffs and money they’ve already gotten from the state government which doesn’t really tell us much, but we’re eager to see what the governor has up his sleeve. We’re just glad it’s not the 15-25 call center jobs that WSMV was predicting a few weeks ago.
