Good morning, Nashville. If you’ve ever enjoyed a hot dog, popcorn or even a beer at a Titans or Preds game, it might be worth knowing that 62% of LP Field food vendors and 59% of Bridgestone Arena food vendors had major health violations according to a recent inspection. Vendors at both facilities were found to have both non-critical and critical violations; critical violations could include “presence of insects or rodents, personnel working with infections or not washing their hands properly or toxic items not properly stored.” Gross, right?
- That’s a lot of charity. The IRS reports that 9,300 charities in Tennessee are at risk of losing their tax-exempt status because they haven’t filed the proper paperwork. You can view the list of at-risk organizations here.
- No more budget billing. Nashville Electric Service is kicking their Budget Billing program to the curb because it’s getting too confusing for customers. Previously, customers have had the option of paying for their average usage each month and then paying any remaining balance at the end of the year (or receiving a credit if they paid too much.) But because rates are fluctuating so much, people are ending up owing too much.
- Bits & pieces. Just when we thought we’d seen it all, Gwyneth Paltrow released a country single … The Farmer’s Market food court is reopening on Monday … Tennessee is one of only five states where the Nissan all-electric LEAF will be available for now … Massive, creepy-looking, tree-killing beetles have arrived in Tennessee … More storms possible today … Someone was busy slashing 20-30 cars’ tires last night in Bellevue.
