  • The Antioch Islamic Center is finally good to go, having finally purchased the old theater building they were looking at, much to the chagrin of many of the town’s residents. [WSMV]
  • Sales tax collections showed the biggest increase in three years between June and July, which is a good sign for our state’s economy since we depend on sales tax. [WTVF]
  • The Preds gave their executive leadership team a bit of a makeover with a new CEO and COO, both of whom are expected to give the business side of things a boost. [Tennessean]
