Bright & Early: Falling Slowly Edition

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

  • Fall starts today! We have no idea why it’s supposed to be 94 degrees outside as that is not how fall works, but then again, this is Tennessee. [Nashville WX]
  • Once upon a time, someone found an alligator in Dickson, so they duct taped its mouth shut and stuffed it in a filing cabinet. What a good story! [WSMV]
  • Four Metro schools were recognized by the USDA for offering lots of healthy food options and improving their overall nutritional environment. [Tennessean]
  • And on the not-so-healthy-but-pretty-dang-delicious end of the spectrum, Loveless Cafe’s biscuits were recognized as the best in the country by the Food Network! [Tennessean]
  • Among other things, Nashville lost nearly half of its movie screens in the flood. [Tennessean]
  • One Nashville company says they’ve trained German shepherds to hunt down bedbugs, which we suppose is one way of dealing with it. [WSMV]
  • After all of the rain in the spring, we never thought we’d be facing a drought. Some Tennessee farmers are looking at a crop shortage due to all the dry weather this summer. [WSMV]
  • The Musicians Hall of Fame might have found a new home, finally: The basement of the Municipal Auditorium. The museum was forced out by the city to make way for the Music City Center construction and then had part of its collection destroyed in the flood while it sat in storage. [WSMV]
