Good morning, Nashville. Yesterday, we heard news from Sumner County that the school system would be giving parents the option of opting their children out of President Obama’s address to school kids next week. Williamson and Wilson counties have now decided not to show the speech in any of their schools, citing the importance of maximizing instructional time. Metro Schools will make a decision today and will most likely leave it up to each school.
- NAACP suit continues. As predicted, more plaintiffs are coming forward in the NAACP’s civil rights suit against Metro Schools over the controversial zoning measure. The injunction hearing is slated for September 16th.
- Let’s go Titans! Congrats to the Titans for plowing right over the Packers last night in a 27-13 win. Having wrapped up the preseason, they’ll be taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers next Thursday in the season opener.
- Bits & pieces. The weather is looking great for the holiday weekend … If you think any of the 1500 stolen items recovered by Metro a few weeks ago are yours, this is your last chance to claim them … A police dog got loose and attacked a Murfreesboro Middle Schooler yesterday … A former WAY-FM staffer is suing the station for allegedly firing her for pointing out some shady business practices.
