Bright & Early: Pink Elephant Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re tight on time, so here’s your roundup of this morning’s headlines (with a little bit from earlier this week thrown in).

  • More Yazoo! Yazoo will now be available on tap at the Bridgestone Arena, and no longer just on the first floor and in club level. [Post Business]
  • Keep an eye out for the “Bad Hair Bandit,” who has robbed six banks in Kentucky and Tennessee wearing a variety of women’s wigs. [Tennessean]
  • Occupy Nashville protesters will hand deliver a letter to the Governor’s office this morning, asking if they can “start anew” and stating their intentions to remain in Legislative Plaza for the long haul. [WTVF]
  • Occupy Nashville isn’t the only group protesting in Legislative Plaza. A Murfreesboro man is asking folks to “Occupy the Altar” and pray for the economic crisis. Vanderbilt University College Republicans are also planning to stage a counter-protest tonight at 7:15pm. [Tennessean, WTVF]
  • About 4,000 people showed up to interview for one of the 1,100 jobs available at Nissan’s Smyrna plant at yesterday’s job fair. Interviewers stayed until the last person was interviewed, wrapping up at 7:30pm (the fair was supposed to run from 9am-2pm). [WTVF]
  • Sixteen homes in Hermitage have never had access to Metro Water, despite being located in Davidson County. The neighborhood relies on well water which has been found to be contaminated with E Coli and Coliform, and now they’re asking for a water main to be installed. [WTVF]
  • Construction on the Music City Center has hit the halfway mark. [WKRN]
