  • Students at Thurgood Marshall Middle, Andrew Jackson Elementary and AZ Kelley Elementary had a very hot first full day back after some pop-up storms took out their A/C overnight. [WKRN]
  • The Davidson County Election Commission found another voting machine that hadn’t been tallied and now Douglas Henry only leads Jeff Yarbro by 11 votes. As for how the machine went uncounted, election administrator Ray Barrett told the City Paper, “It happens every election. We put out close to 600 voting machines. [Poll workers] have been there 14 hours. Sometimes they just misread one of them.” Seriously? [City Paper]
  • Belmont has some grand plans for 15th Avenue South which include stoplights, turn lanes and even a roundabout. Predictably, the neighbors aren’t thrilled. [Tennessean]
  • We know of at least a few of you who will be excited to hear that the Donelson Target will be opening bigger and better this Thursday for the first time since the flood. [Tennessean]
  • Nashville Shores will be staying open ten extra days this year, through August 29th, which seems appropriate as it is generally blazingly hot in Tennessee well into October. [Tennessean]
  • Police in White House are trying to get to the bottom of an incident this morning involving some bombs that went off in front of a police station. They believe the bombs might have been targeting State Trooper Vincent Turocy who found similar bombs in front of his house a month ago. [WTVF]
