Good morning, Nashville. Over the next few months, the Metro Council will be taking a closer look at the 287(g) immigration enforcement program in order to decide whether or not the city should just opt out altogether. In an effort to prevent jails from filling up with only minor offenders awaiting deportation hearings, the federal government has made some changes that allow most folks detained through the program to walk free while they wait. Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall plans to go to Washington to suggest a few changes of his own.
- Maury County unemployed. Thanks to the Spring Hill GM plant idling in June, Maury County’s unemployment rate for June was an unfortunate 17.3%. As predicting, this is affecting tons of other businesses in the area.
- A few good men. Three employees are rescuing Amerigo, the oldest restaurant on West End, from closing down by buying it themselves. Hopefully this ends a little better than Ombi (RIP).
- Bits & pieces. Mississippi is blaming us for all of their loan problems … One group has a few things to say about how Metro Schools should be handling students with learning disabilities … Apparently UT football coach Lane Kiffin likes to talk a lot of smack … Sen. Paul Stanley may have inspired a brand new rule for TN legislators who cross the line with interns.
