Good morning, Nashville. Metro officials are trying to figure out how the Parks & Recreation managed to go $1 million over budget without anyone realizing it before it was too late. The city had to make some pretty expensive repairs courtesy of a lightning strike back in the summer, and they also decided to keep Shelby and Percy Warner parks open for us over the winter, which they don’t normally do. The Metro Finance Department is currently looking into the matter.
- Book deals. Eric Volz, a Nashvillian who was incarcerated in Nicaragua for more than a year after being falsely accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, is writing a book about the ordeal and about returning to the US after he was cleared.
- An arm and a leg. Vanderbilt was #26 on a list of US colleges ranked by cost of tuition, room and board; Yale and Princeton ranked well below Vandy at 89 and 96 respectively. So basically, Vanderbilt is really expensive.
- Bits & pieces. Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander is quite the stickler for grammar … Lots of Nashvillian moms are hitting the burlesque scene … The Tennessean has cleverly declared Coach Fisher’s jersey debacle “Jerseygate” … Tut tut, looks like (more) rain … Big changes have been made at BNA.
