Good morning, Nashville. In case the LP Field Sinkhole is plaguing your dreams (like it is ours), rest assured that it will be fixed before the Titans first preseason game in August. They’ve also hired a team of engineers to study the sinkhole to figure out how to it happened, but LP Field officials don’t seem to think that there’s any danger of additional sinkholes opening up around the field. Music to our ears.
- Pedal away. Nashville’s free bike sharing program will launch later this summer. Residents will be able to check out one of the city’s 30 bicycles at Shelby Bottoms or the Music City Star riverfront train station to check out one of the city’s 30 bicycles, and hit the road. The full program is expected to roll out next spring.
- Special guest on Capitol Hill. A “tenacious” raccoon is living in the ceiling of Legislative Plaza, breaking into the kitchen and other such terrors.
- Bits & pieces. 2,000-year old human bones found in Rutherford County have been turned over to the state … Bank of Nashville’s CEO is stepping down … “Ceiling Collapses On Man In Shower” … 350 electric car charging stations coming to our neighbors in Knoxville … July is here, get ready for the annual cicadas!
