Bright & Early: Hatching A Plan Edition

Good morning, Nashville. A hectic weekend means we’re behind this morning, so this is going to be a quick one!

  • Hatch Show Print, one of downtown Nashville’s most historic gems, may join the new convention center as an anchor tenant by either moving their whole operation or just opening a second location. [Tennessean]
  • Jack White became the first recipient of the Music City Ambassador Award presented by Mayor Dean for “bridging the gap between genres and generations.” [WPLN]
  • Our Preds edged out the ducks last night 4-3, taking a 2-1 lead in the playoff series. [WSMV]
  • A Metro bus nearly collided with a Mercedes Benz this morning at 4th and Lafayette near the I-40 ramp when the driver of the Mercedez Benz came driving down the street the wrong way. The bus swerved and hit a gas line, but fortunately no one was severely injured. [WSMV]
  • Tennessee is looking to change its execution methods because lethal injection drugs have become scarce and there are 86 inmates on death row. [Tennessean]
  • A giant glass window fell out of the James K. Polk building downtown yesterday, shattering on the street below, but thankfully not injuring anyone. No one is sure why the window fell out. [WTVF]
