Bright & Early: When It Rains Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re running behind this morning, so you know the drill:

  • We’ll be mostly spared from that giant winter storm the rest of the country is freaking out about. For our part, it’ll just be a lot of rain and wind and probably some thunderstorms. [Nashville WX]
  • Metro and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency have busted up a hefty drug trafficking operation in Nashville that allegedly pumped around 50 kilos of cocaine per month into Middle Tennessee. Eight people were arrested and 27 kilos confiscated at an estimated street value of more than $1 million. [WSMV]
  • Tennessee will be slashing around $70 million from its educational programs, meaning that things like the summer Governor’s Schools, the Coordinated School Health initiative and the state’s funding of Books from Birth will come to an end. [WPLN]
  • Mayor Dean is still working to get Nashville State Community College a satellite campus in Antioch. [WKRN]
  • As we’ve all been watching Egypt unravel, the Egyptian community in Middle Tennessee has been fearing for the safety of friends and family members back home and wondering what all the unrest means for them. [WSMV]
