- Oh my: A man died in a fire at an ammo store on Nolensville Pike yesterday. The store is actually just South of the K&S Market that I reviewed yesterday. They haven't identified the body yet and are investigating the cause of the fire.
- More about our rain gardens: Nancy DeVille at the Tennessean wrote up a nice little story about our pairing with the Cumberland River Compact to plant rain gardens all over Wedgewood-Houston. Is it alright if I quote my quote? You should just go read it. Because it's my birthday week.
- Did you expect us to just lay back and take it?: Cue the mean internet people who like to make ridiculous assumptions about my friends. A group of neighbors of the Tennessee State Fairgrounds have engaged with a lawyer* to hold accountable the petition to add a referendum to the ballot that, if passed, would make it more difficult to do anything with the fairgrounds property other than maintain the status quo. You can read more about it here, here and here. And if you haven't already, you should really spend a few minutes perusing the Neighbors for Progress website. Because it's my birthday week.
*Despite what the headline of one of the articles insinuates, Neighbors for Progress has no money to "hire" a lawyer. The law firm, Barrett Johnston, LLC, has been gracious to take an interest in our case and is offering their services at no cost.
