Bright & Early: It’s Friday Friday Edition

Good morning, Nashville. A quick tour of the headlines this morning:

  • A group of protesters hung out around the Davidson County Clerk’s Office yesterday demanding John Arriola’s resignation. [WTVF]
  • Tennessee’s unemployment rate keeps creeping back up toward 10%, but we’re not quite there yet. [WRKN]
  • Home break-ins are up by 29% in Davidson County’s south precinct. [WTVF]
  • Once upon a time, a bear got a plastic jug stuck on its head in Tennessee for a few weeks and it kept making the national news. We’re happy to report that this story does have a happy ending! [Tennessean]
  • Good news about these pop-up afternoon storms: They are making things a little less stupid-hot around here. [Nashville WX]
  • Congratulations, Tennessee! You’re one of the 20 states with the most toxic air in the country thanks to coal and oil-fired power plants. [WTVF]
  • Not even a week after announcing their impending closure, the Elliston Place Soda Shop reached a deal on their rent and signed a new 5-year lease. Milkshakes all around! [WTVF]
  • Things got a little rowdy at a community meeting in LaVergne last night, putting our recent string of Metro Council shouting matches to shame. [Tennessean]
