Good morning, Nashville. While East Tennessee is busy falling apart with various rock slides and what have you, West Tennessee has experienced six earthquakes in the past week. We’re glad that things are staying chill in the midstate (for now), but seismic experts do say that it means the New Madrid Seismic Zone is active. Fortunately, they also say that it doesn’t actually mean that a massive, epic earthquake is imminent.
- Sticky situation. A tractor trailer crashed into the back of a TDOT truck early this morning, spilling adhesive all over I-24. Yesterday it was turkey, today it’s glue. Anyway, the TDOT driver was injured but is expected to recover and two lanes are reportedly still closed between Old Hickory Blvd. and Hickory Hollow Pkwy.
- Fair question. The parents of that baby that was stolen a while back are suing DCS to find out why on earth everyone thought that they’d actually stolen the kid. According to the suit, they suspect they were victims of anti-Latino bias.
- Bits & pieces. People are practically lining up around the block to claim parts of Steve McNair’s estate … Purity Ball season is in full swing out in Franklin … Be nice to the folks dressed as 19th century newsboys today and you might win $25 … A local couple will have to divorce to get sufficient health benefits for their kid.
