Good morning, Nashville. Although Metro schools barely made the cut for No Child Left Behind, the state has decided to pull their contract for providing GED services because officials weren’t happy with how it was being handled. Consequently, the program has been handed off to local charities like the YWCA who can provide the classes on a much smaller scale for the time being. Adult English language classes have also reportedly been scaled back, but there’s no word yet on what that will look like.

Juliet were evacuated yesterday after a construction crew accidentally struck a gas line … Home sales were way up in June, indicating that there might be a light at the end of the tunnel … A man is suing Regions Bank for failing to disclose some of their ATM fees.
