Bright & Early: At The Drive-In Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Here’s what’s going on around town this morning:

  • So someone drove a car through our favorite laundromat at the corner of 21st and Blair yesterday! Hopefully no one was hurt, but we can’t find it in the news anywhere. [Instagram & TwitPic]
  • The folks at the Tennessee Aquarium are proud to announce that they’ve hatched three more four-eyed turtles to add to their extensive four-eyed turtle collection. And you know, we’re not sure we’d be braggin’ about that because it’s kind of weird. [WZTV]
  • The hits just keep coming for Davidson County Clerk John Arriola, who’s now being accused of putting his campaign treasurer on the payroll and not actually making him do any work. [Tennessean]
  • Loretta Lynn had to cancel an appearance in Ohio after getting seriously dehydrated “following a period of extreme heat in Tennessee.” And who could blame her? It’s hot. [WKRN]
  • Two of Nashville’s fancy new bike racks–the microphone and the giant padlocks–were recognized by the Public Art Network for being awesome examples of public art. Shockingly, Ghost Ballet was not included. [WPLN]
  • Officials in Tennessee have been using wiretaps more often lately to catch criminals. [Tennessean]
  • Oh hallelujah, that giant construction project near Metro Center could wrap up as early as this month! [WKRN]
