Good morning, Nashville. Remember that new law granting free downtown parking to hybrid owners who shell out a mere $10 for a parking sticker? Metro Councilman Charlie Tygard, who has criticized the program for being too elitist, is hoping to extend the opportunity to all Davidson County car owners–if we are willing to pay for the carbon offset for the particular vehicles we drive. The money would go into a carbon offset fund that would pay for carbon-eating trees and wetlands mitigation and other fancy things to help the city get a little less gross.

- Bits & pieces. The guy who hacked Miley’s email and leaked a bunch of her underage underwear pictures appeared in court in Nashville this week … Table 3 restaurant in Green Hills caught on fire early this morning, and depending on which article you read, there might have been some water and smoke damage … A Clarksville man was swallowed up by a sinkhole in the sidewalk, just like that!
