Bright & Early: Right Side Of Bed Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We may have overslept this morning, so here’s your abbreviated Bright & Early:

  • After city officials voted to nearly double property taxes in LaVergne, a group of very upset business leaders are now petitioning to unincorporate the city. If that happens, all city officials will be out of a job, police and fire departments will disappear and LaVergne will merge into the rest of Rutherford County. [WKRN]
  • There’s a new independent bookstore coming to town! [WKRN]
  • Get moving, Nashville: Men’s Health Magazine says that we’re one of the least active cities in the country, but Mayor Dean begs to differ. [WKRN]
  • Alignment Nashville scored a $50,000 grant from the Healthways Foundation to make Nashville’s school cafeterias a little healthier. [WTVF]
  • Nissan donated five shiny new cars to the folks at the Nashville Zoo in hopes of helping out transportation throughout the park as well as for school programs. [WKRN]
  • The Fisk University art battle continues. [WTVF]
  • Hooray! The North Nashville and Green Hills satellite county clerk offices will remain open. [City Paper]
  • Our city will be hosting the National Folk Festival for the next three years, which is expected to bring in $10-15 million each year. [WTVF]
