Bright & Early: Falling Into Fall Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Your tour of this morning’s headlines:

  • The latest study by Feeding America shows that nearly 30% of Middle Tennessee’s kids don’t have access to healthy food because of poverty. The folks at Second Harvest are working closely with the group to figure out how to tackle the problem. [WPLN]
  • More terrible offeason hockey news: A plane carrying most of the Russian hockey team Lokomotiv crashed during take-off this morning, killing 36 and injuring one. Former Preds Vasicek and Skrastins are on the team’s roster but haven’t been confirmed to be on board, though Yahoo’s Puck Daddy is reporting that everyone on the main roster was on the plane. [AP]
  • But on a happier note, Preds single game tickets go on sale this Saturday. [WKRN]
  • If you haven’t already noticed, it’s still sort of cold outside! And cloudy. And autumn-y. Things are supposed to warm up by the weekend, but it looks like we’re at least trending in the right direction. [Nashville WX]
  • But despite all the rain, the Cumberland isn’t anywhere near flood stage. [WKRN]
  • And man, we’re really upset that all of this rain is driving up the price of… pasta? [WKRN]
  • Someone has been phoning in bomb threats to the Murfreesboro Islamic Center, which has already had a hell of a time out there in the short time it has existed. [WTVF]
  • So imagine you’re just coming home from a relaxing vacation and you notice that your roof is gone! Except it was supposed to be your neighbor’s roof that was gone, because they had actually ordered a roof repair, but someone removed your roof instead. So then the roofers ran away and it rained inside of your house. Only in Clarksville. [WTVF]
