Good morning, Nashville. In case you missed it yesterday, police are on the lookout for a 5′6″, 140 lb. Hispanic man who’s been grabbing women’s butts as they jog along Belmont Boulevard. Based on the reports received so far, it seems to be happening between 5am and 6:30am, and the man lurks in his white four-door car with tinted windows before popping out and grabbing. If you’ve seen anything suspicious or even been a victim yourself, please report it to Metro so they can catch this creep. In the meantime, ladies, be careful!
- Leave the guns at home. Metro’s law director has now said that Nashville has an existing ordinance banning guns from parks which is not overridden by the new state law. Because the law was passed before 1986, there’s some legal mumbo jumbo that says it gets to stay in place regardless of what state law says. If that turns out to be the case, then we shouldn’t need to opt out.
- We <3 Jet Noise. Airport officials are warning the folks who live nearby that they may be hearing more noise over the next few months. BNA is shutting down one of their four runways for construction meaning that all flights will be squeezed into the three remaining runways so those flight paths will be used with more frequency.
- Bits & pieces. The Tennessean helps us understand the utilikilt phenomenon, and if there were ever a time to scroll down and read the comments, it would be now … A convenience store clerk who was shot back in 2000 died from his injuries this week, making the incident a homicide 9 years later … Former President Bill Clinton is speaking in Nashville at a Democratic fundraising dinner next month.
A year ago on Nashvillest: We were a little creeped out by the guy who wrote a weird song about Keith and Nicole’s new baby, caught Will Hoge in the Belcourt’s backyard, wondered which locals refer to Pancake Pantry as PanPan, and got an update on one of the most epic newspaper ad breakups of all time.
