- We’re less than a week out from Nashville’s Twestival Local and we’re only eight ducks away from meeting our goal of 100 duck adoptions this week! If you can help us out (and our friends at Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle TN!) and want to join our team, check out Twestival Nashville for some important instructions. Go team!
- Franklin residents were finally able complain out loud about that awful-smelling manufacturing plant that keeps smelling up their town. Over 100 people came out to the hearing last night. [Tennessean]
- The Mayor of Clarksville forwarded an unfortunate email around to the city council and other city officials asking them to protest a “new” Muslim stamp that the email claims was commissioned by President Obama.

- Mayor Dean has finally nominated a for-real convention center authority to oversee the project as it moves forward and hopefully not let contracts get quite as far out of control. [WPLN]
