Good morning, Nashville. We apologize for the lateness this morning, but we’re still trying to scrape ourselves off the floor from Apple’s earth-shattering Beatles announcement (ahem!) At any rate, yesterday saw the grand reopening of our beloved Opryland Hotel–Christmas lights and all–and Gaylord is now saying that 80% of the 1,700ish staff they had to lay off after the flood have returned to their jobs. Good news all around! Opry Mills is still down for the count, although Bass Pro Shops’ sales are actually up despite being the one and only store in there that’s open.
- Way to go, NPL! Congratulations to our very own Nashville Public Library, who snagged one of only five national awards for being one of the top libraries in the country. They’ll head to DC soon to accept the medal at the White House.
- Horrible humans still flood-looting. Somehow, looters are still picking through flood-ravaged properties along Whites Creek, often in broad daylight. A few folks have set up security cameras in hopes of catching these people.
- Bits & pieces. Rain and cold, rain and cold. Must be winter in Middle Tennessee … There will be no more wrestling events at the fairgrounds, which is why God created the Stadium Inn (duh) … We get it, Vanderbilt, you hate “Rocky Top” and you are sick of seeing orange T’s … The laptop thefts at the Music City Center construction site last month were apparently not random.
