Good morning, Nashville. If you’re one of the folks who have helped rack up Nashville’s $26 million in unpaid traffic fines over the years, you might be in luck. Councilman Eric Crafton is proposing an amnesty program for anyone with minor violations in 2006, 2007, or 2008 who hasn’t paid their ticket(s) which would allow violators to get off the hook by only paying half of the fine. Because half of the revenue is better than none, right? Savor this, Nashville, as it is probably the only time we will see Councilman Crafton supporting any kind of amnesty initiative.
- Rally-O. Supporters of health care reform initiatives took to the streets yesterday near Centennial Park at rush hour, rivaled by a smaller group of counter-protesters. Today is also the day that folks are protesting Rep. Jim Cooper’s non-existent town hall on health care reform at West End Middle.
- Pig flew. Madison had a bit of a pig problem yesterday after a three of them busted out of their pen and promptly began terrorizing a neighborhood. On what is sure to be Metro’s favorite kind of call, it took a handful of officers about an hour to round up the offending swine.
- Bits & pieces. We thought anthrax scares were so 2001, but the Criminal Justice Center downtown had one of its own this morning … Shelbyville has become the latest in a long list of Tennessee cities to opt out of guns in parks … Memphis’ ex-mayor who stepped down last month has filed a petition to run again … This weekend is going to be hot.
