Good morning, Nashville. Saturday marks the start of the Nashville Build by the crew of Extreme Home Makeover and a few thousand volunteers. The crew will be rebuilding the home of a flood victim somewhere in Nashville and probably making it super-fancy since the mysterious beneficiary has likely been crammed into a hotel or friend’s couch for the past several months. Parts of the house are already being constructed off-site as we speak and they still need volunteers and donations. So what are you doing with your Saturday?
- Hate on. A Springfield minister wants in on that Quran-burning action happening in Florida on Saturday. And not to be outdone by the Floridians, he says he plans to post the video online. “If they want their religion,” he says, “they can have it somewhere else.”
- Sharp shooter. Someone who is evidently not very good at shooting doves managed to take down the internet, cable and phones across four counties earlier this week. The individual is thought to have tried to shoot a dove sitting on a wire which happened to be the Internet Wire for Bedford County and surrounding counties, and the entire internet was down until Wednesday.
- Bits & pieces. Flu shots may be mandatory for Vanderbilt Medical Center employees … Some jerk stole a woman’s pet dogs in Williamson County, but they were eventually recovered safe & sound … The President of Lipscomb University is off to Washington for a meeting of faith leaders … A family is suing Metro after claiming that a teacher accidentally knocked their kid’s front teeth out by accident … We might be in for some rough weather tonight … We might also be in for a rough commute with former President Bill Clinton speaking downtown tonight … The number of Tennessee students who qualify for free and reduced lunch is up 3% from last year.
