Bright & Early: Seeing The Light Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Your morning headlines:

  • Much like the country was doing a few weeks ago, Tennessee is trying hard to keep its credit rating from plummeting, which would be kind of bad!  [Tennessean]
  • Gone are the days of the Cheerios running around in their cheerleading uniforms all day at school, at least for Brentwood Middle School. Parents are up in arms that cheerleaders now have to wear sweatpants under their uniform skirts during school hours. We only WISH someone would make us wear sweatpants all day. [WKRN]
  • If Belmont seems to be taking over, it’s because their enrollment just exceeded 6,300–114% more than it was in 2000. [City Paper]
  • Well, well, well! Look who decided to come out of retirement already. [Tennessean]
  • For those playing along at home, Chris Johnson’s meeting with Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt was fairly unproductive. [City Paper]
  • Gibson Guitars had a bit of a rough day yesterday when the feds raided them for some reason. This isn’t the first time it’s happened, though: Back in 2009, they were raided for possibly importing endangered wood and plant material, but nothing ever came of it. [WKRN]
  • Even former Governor Phil has jury duty. [WKRN]
