Good morning, Nashville. We’re short on time this morning, so here’s an abbreviated Bright & Early:
- Memphis is flu-free. The first batches of the H1N1 vaccine began arriving in the state yesterday and were administered to healthcare workers in Memphis. The vaccine, which is actually a nasal spray called FluMist, should be hitting the rest of the state this week.
- Creative solutions. Cumberland County has generously offered to take some of the toxic coal ash from Kingston off of the TVA’s hands, hoping to pile it on top of a mountaintop mine that they currently consider an “environmental eyesore.” Members of the community are a little less gung-ho.
- Bits & pieces. The Uptown YMCA on Church Street (which is not the same as the Downtown YMCA on Church Street) will be closing at the end of November … Our former Senator Fred Thompson is rekindling his acting career with a role in Secretariat … The abducted baby case is officially going to court with allegations of child neglect and the intent to sell the child … Watch out for storms today.
