Good morning, Nashville. It’s been a while since the Guns In Bars discussion came up in the news, but now a server at Jackson’s in Hillsboro Village has filed a complaint with TOSHA (Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration), claiming that allowing guns in the restaurant creates an unsafe work environment. Unlike some of the other restaurants in the Village, Jackson’s owners did not post any signs banning weapons and therefore folks with permits are free to tote guns inside under the new state law. It may be a few months before officials will hear the complaint, but the server’s lawyer says they’re prepared to take it to the federal level if they need to.
- Flood impacts school enrollment. Metro Schools are attributing the latest enrollment and transfer spike on flood-related relocations. They have 1,000 more students this year than they did last year.
- Sleep tight. Anytime we see the words “looming bed bug problem” in relation to Nashville, our skin starts to crawl a little. According to public health officials, Nashville has seen a big increase in the critters, with some people “bitten 300 or more times in a single night.”
- Bits & pieces. An Antioch car dealership donated brand new uniforms to a high school football team who lost all of theirs in the flood … The TBI is starting a new online service that they hope will keep the public informed of public safety alerts … The TVA is downsizing some of their fuel plants in favor of nuclear power … The Cardinals and the Titans will practice together today, which is kinda cute … You can pre-order Governor Phil’s book on health care reform on Amazon … We are entirely too excited about this cold front.
