Happy Hour: Countdown To Turkey Day

  • A gang violence scare at Hillsboro High School had dozens of parents yanking their kids out of school this afternoon. The panic started with a text message threat that circulated around the school, and then extra Metro Police officers were called in to keep things under control. School officials say that students’ nerves were already shot from learning of the shooting death of their third classmate this year yesterday. [City Paper]
  • Nothing says “Thanksgiving” in the South quite like a deep-fried turkey, and country star Tracy Lawrence & co. spent the day cooking 500 of them to distribute to the Nashville Rescue Mission and families around Wilson County. If you’d like to learn how to deep-fry your own turkey, we’d recommend watching Coolio’s very helpful video tutorial (probably NSFW.) [WTVF]
  • And today in Vince Young news, he apparently showed up to the team’s Baptist Sports Park facility and was promptly asked to leave. As you might expect, he was a bit upset. He’ll be allowed back “at a later date.” [Tennessean]
  • A West Tennessee inmate managed to slip out of jail by somehow squeezing himself between the bars of his cell. But as he’s 5’11″, 165 lbs. and the bars are 4.5 inches apart, we have to say we’re incredibly impressed. The inmate is now back in custody. [WSMV]
