Bright & Early: Yes, You Signed That Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re running behind this morning, so here’s your abbreviated Bright & Early:

  • Homeless shelters could be facing a new barrier in the form of a recently-signed state law that only allows two registered sex offenders to live at one address. Since many homeless folks use addresses of shelters and transitional housing, this could cause some problems. When asked about the law while touring Room In The Inn’s new facility yesterday, Governor Phil replied, “Did I sign that?” [Tennessean]
  • After 16 years in pro football, fan favorite Kevin Mawae is expected to announce his retirement at a 4pm press conference. Though he played with the Titans from 2006-2009, he wasn’t re-signed this year and has been serving as a strength and conditioning intern at Vanderbilt. [Tennessean]
  • Some Nashvillians are worried that their houses might slip-n-slide during the winter due to some nearby landslides during the flood and more ground saturation anticipated this winter. [WSMV]
  • Today’s been looking pretty gloomy with some scattered showers in the forecast for the rest of the day. We could see a couple of strong storms tomorrow. [Nashville WX]
  • Tennessee is getting a fancy new 911 system next year that will allow us to send texts, photos and videos to emergency dispatchers. [Tennessean]
  • Don’t forget about the street closures for Sunday’s Titans game! [Tennessean]
  • In case anyone was concerned, the Springfield minister who pledged to burn a Quran in solidarity with the minister in Florida is still going to hold the bonfire, despite the Florida burning being postponed or called off. It should be up on Youtube before the weekend is out. [Tennessean]
  • For some reason, this popular German American Idol-ish reality show has been filming in Nashville and they kind of like it here. [City Paper]
