Happy Hour: Keep Calm And Carry On

  • We are happy to report that after watching Mayor Dean’s State of the Metro address, the libraries won’t be cutting back to 20 hours per week, brush removal is still going to happen, and the school budget will be completely funded. And Sevier Park is getting a community center. [WKRN]
  • And now for the real shocker: Westbound I-440 will see some closures this weekend. [Tennessean]
  • The state Senate voted to impose a new fee on hospitals in return for the state not making a major cut to TennCare. [WZTV]
  • Some new statistics show that more than 60% of Tennessee’s bankruptcies are caused by excessive medical bills. [WSMV]
  • And for some reason, Kid Rock is hosting the CMT Music Awards. We’re setting our sights on Snoop Dogg for next year. [Tennessean]
