Happy Hour: Stimulate This

  • Tennessee is getting a boatload of stimulus money to help repair and weatherize low-income homes in hopes of saving money on utilities. [Tennessean]
  • Williamson County is putting the kibosh on the Young Adult Library Services Association’s 2009 list of Best Books for Young Adults because the list recommends some borderline-inappropriate reading materials. The books in question were deemed too “salacious” for the high school audience and covered topics like sexual abuse and cross-dressing. [Tennessean]
  • UT football coach Lane Kiffin is in trouble again with the NCAA, this time for a recruitment violation that involved posting a little too much information on his Twitter and Facebook accounts. [WSMV]
  • The Metro Council voted to buy the land for the new convention center even though they haven’t quite decided how we’re going to pay for it yet. Councilman Eric Crafton is none too pleased. [WSMV]
  • We almost forgot about the four Metro schools that are closing this year: Cora Howe, Ewing Park, Martha Vaught, and Brookemeade. [WSMV]
