Good morning, Nashville. We woke up this morning and there was… not much snow outside at all, really. Nevertheless, Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Sumner and a whole slew of other midstate counties closed schools today and all of us adults are probably at work. As far as Metro goes, they aren’t dipping into summer school just yet, but since we’ve still got a good month or two left of winter, we wouldn’t rule it out.
- Can you recycle salt? The other story that seems to show up in the headlines every single time it snows or almost snows is the salt shortage. TDOT is in hardcore conservation mode, trying to make the meager supply last until their next shipment comes in February.
- Secret’s safe with them. A recent audit found that Metro Schools had a training presentation containing students’ names and social security numbers posted on their website for two years. Once notified, one presentation was removed immediately while the other was left up online for another six months.
- Bits & pieces. Very, very sad to report that country music legend Charlie Louvin passed away this morning. He was 83 … A fancy new 101-room Marriott will be built by the airport on Elm Hill Pike … Though lower than the national average, Middle Tennessee’s foreclosure rate rose 1/2% from 2009 to 2010 … Some folks are lobbying for a mountain bike trail in Warner Parks.
