Good morning, Nashville. Mayor Dean will be making an appearance at the Nashville Farmer’s Market today to discuss some new initiatives aimed at preserving our city’s green space and making us the greenest city EVER. If you’re one of the three people who has nowhere to be at 1pm today, you can head over to the marketplace to check that out. You can also vote on the initiatives anytime between 10am and 3pm.
- More good news for Spring Hill. Yesterday brought the exciting news that the Spring Hill GM plant would be rehiring 400 people to help produce a new engine. Today we’re learning that GM has a press conference scheduled for Friday to share some even better news for the plant which idled nearly a year ago and resulted in more than 1,500 layoffs.
- We are still Nashville. As Extreme Home Makeover‘s Nashville Build continues for Lighthouse Preschool, they’re in desperate need of some help with painting. If you’ve got a few hours to spare, you can head directly over to the Antioch Community Center, located at 5023 Blue Hole Road. Let’s build these kids an awesome school.
- Bits & pieces. Surprise surprise, the TVA is hiking our electric bills again … In other surprising news, the neighbors are still upset about Belmont’s rapid expansion … Here are a couple of recaps from last night’s gubernatorial debate, which would have been infinitely more interesting if Basil Marceaux had been there … In case your sinuses haven’t already notified you, the ragweed is terrible this year.
