Good morning, Nashville. Your tour of today’s headlines:
- We’re a little late to this story, but it’s never too late to celebrate: GM announced that they’ll be reopening the idled Spring Hill plant, creating (or re-creating?) upwards of 1,700 jobs. The plant idled back in November 2009 and laid off nearly 2,000 workers just in time for the holidays. [WTVF]
- Oh no! All this rain we’ve been getting in addition to the extra-hot summer we had have caused a pumpkin shortage across Middle Tennessee. Let the pumpkin-hoarding begin! [WKRN]
- Maybe the folks at MTSU can figure out how to grow them on that brand new $4.3 million farm they opened. Oh, wait–that’s just for dairy. [WKRN]
- That Kenny Britt mugshot we have all come to know and love has resurfaced, but this time because his NJ court date has been postponed. [WKRN]
- And you all will be happy to know that Chris Johnson isn’t nearly as stressed out about Chris Johnson as we are. [City Paper]
- Turns out not everyone in Brentwood and Planet Franklin is a fan of the electric car charging stations. [Tennessean]
