Good morning, Nashville. Happy Halloween! Well… almost. Before you go busting out your crazy costumes, the Tennessee Highway Patrol is reminding us all to be careful this weekend as Halloween is one of the most dangerous holidays for young kids and pedestrians. So drive safe or call (or text!) a cab, watch out for kiddos and keep the party out of the streets. Oh, and take lots of pictures. There’s also been some confusion about when trick-or-treating is happening, so you can find out what’s going on in your part of town.
- Hopefully! Following the arrests of 26 gang members earlier this year, Metro Police say they’ve essentially destroyed the Nashville Bloods and driven the rest of the gangs into hiding. Several months later, there still hasn’t been anymore gang-related gunfire.
- Meanwhile in Lawrence County… This is a story about an angry cow who escaped from a Lawrence County farm, stomping pedestrians and visiting the playground and wandering into Hardees and basically leaving a trail of destruction in her wake. As you can imagine, this story does not have a happy ending but it’s still worth the read.
- Bits & pieces. How’s this for depressing? The old Seanachie Pub could turn into a CVS … More than 700,000 absentee and early vote ballots were cast during the early voting period, which ended yesterday … BNA has now started using those new body scanning machines that everyone loves … The Metro Council wants to know exactly why MTA employees were kept at work while the building was flooding in May.
