27. Battle fatigue setting in with Metro Council -

The Metro Nashville City Council is “just worn out,” Councilman Robert Swope says. “All of us are completely beat up. We’ve had more elections in the last three months than we’ve had in the last five years. We’re all sick of it,” Swope says. “We’ve got the MLS soccer stadium thing going crazy. Look at it, transit, property taxes, budget. This is a part-time gig for us. I’m spending 70 hours a week working on my part-time gig.

28. Metro Council panel seeks solution for its own inaction on tax rates -

Less than a month into fiscal 2019, Metro Nashville is set to dig into its $2.23 billion budget with a blue-ribbon commission while enforcing spending-reduction “targets” totaling $11.5 million.

So many amazing and innovative things began in a garage. Grunge music. The Apple computer. Disney. Amazon. And 20 years ago, the beginnings of Nashville’s now-exploding brewery scene.

When Carl Meier moved to Nashville in 1999 from upstate New York, his wife was working on her master’s degree at Vanderbilt, leaving him with some time on his hands. With her encouragement, he joined a local homebrew club, the Music City Brewers, to meet some new friends who shared his love for home brewing.

32. McCormick: No scandal, at least no evidence of any -

Mercurial Republican Rep. Gerald McCormick went from kicking ass to kicking back.

34. Midstate transit future is paved with tired ideas -

Will it be trains, planes or automobiles? If you ask state Rep. William Lamberth, Davidson County voters gave a resounding answer on the future of mass transit in this region. Based on their overwhelming defeat of an early May referendum, they don’t want to raise taxes for mass transit, preferring to be more like Atlanta and Los Angeles and less like New York.

35. Tackling transit, reappraisal in same year not smart -

Nashville’s Metro Council is taking the hit for falling asleep at the wheel in a period of unprecedented prosperity and waking up to a budget shortfall in mid-2018.

“We’ve been drunken by our growth and the label of the It City,” Councilwoman Tanaka Vercher admits. “But this is what happens in growth. It stabilizes.”

36. ‘The perception is Metro left money on the table’ -

Nashville businessman Jimmy Granbery is like most Metro residents who’ve been trying to figure how the “It City’s” budget hit a wall.

With property values rising and cranes dotting the downtown skyline, one could reasonably assume Nashville coffers should be brimming with extra property tax revenue to fund public schools, employee pay raises, a professional soccer stadium and maybe even a flood wall to avert another 2010 disaster.

60. Democrats look to Bredesen to run, reinvigorate party -

Tennessee Democrats are canvassing the state to find candidates at every political level, but their next star is a well-known veteran who has people of all political stripes holding their breath.

Phil Bredesen, the former mayor of Nashville and a two-term governor, could alter the landscape of Tennessee politics if he enters the race for U.S. Senate to fill the void by departing Republican Sen. Bob Corker in 2018.

61. There’s Bredesen, and then there’s ... -

Murfreesboro resident Jon Santee woke up “a different person” on Nov. 9, 2016, the day after Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency.

66. Metro cops grapple with growth -

In Nashville, easily one of the fastest-growing and most-talked-about cities in the country, how do we know if our police officers are getting the job done in our neighborhoods and on our increasingly congested streets and highways? Are they keeping up with the growth?

67. Restaurant workers are in control amid high demand -

In 2011, Nick Pellegrino had one of those life-changing ideas that he just couldn’t shake. A musician and songwriter, he was exhausted from the hustle of that industry.

The Staten Island native couldn’t stop thinking about launching a once-a-week, family-style Italian meal for customers. He decided to trade music for food, and Mangia was born.

68. A million reasons not to jump into governor’s race -

Republican gubernatorial candidate Mae Beavers is banking on the idea wealthy candidates won’t be able to buy voters in 2018.

“Most of them seem to think they can write a hundred-dollar check to everybody in Tennessee and get their vote.

Juliet who says she hopes President Donald Trump will give her a bounce at the polls.

71. Legislature’s end game on guns: No rules at all? -

If you think the state Legislature is full of gun nuts, Rep. Micah Van Huss begs to differ. “No, not at all,” Van Huss says when asked if the General Assembly is too pro-gun. “I don’t think they’re pro-gun enough. In fact, … I think our laws in Tennessee infringe on our constitutional rights. There are now 16 states – we’ve added two or three this year – that allow constitutional carry. So, we’re falling behind.”

72. Legislature losing some powerful, familiar members -

A shakeup in leadership is looming for the state Legislature, though it may portend more of a change in personalities than party strength.

In the House, longtime Rep. Craig Fitzhugh, the affable Democrat from Ripley in West Tennessee, is preparing for a 2018 gubernatorial run, a move that would knock him out of his House seat, at least temporarily, and the position as Democratic Caucus leader.

73. Micromanaging Nashville is Job 1 for Legislature -

Metro Nashville is used to getting hammered by the Legislature’s Republicans.

San Francisco resident Terry Karlsson relishes her hometown’s reputation for embracing “multi-cultural diversity.”

82. Tennessee House, Senate pass Haslam's gas tax proposal -

The House and Senate are nearly ready to send the IMPROVE Act to Gov. Bill Haslam, passing it with relatively wide voting margins after months of debate.

Only one adjustment is needed in a measure providing property tax relief for veterans, the disabled and elderly before the measure can be sent to Haslam.

83. Legislature curtails Metro's ability to fight gas compressor -

Legislation putting a damper on Nashville’s efforts to stop natural gas pipeline compressor projects in Cane Ridge and Joelton is on its way to the governor’s desk.

The House approved a bill 69-23 Monday night prohibiting Metro Nashville from including land use and zoning requirements in its air pollution control regulations through an exemption certificate it holds with the State Air Pollution Control Board. The Senate previously passed the legislation 23-6.

84. House short of votes to needed to pass Haslam's gas tax/tax cut -

Votes aren’t adding up in the House of Representatives for passage of the governor’s gas tax/tax cut legislation.

With floor debate scheduled Wednesday morning, not only is a Republican head count showing lack of support, Democrats aren’t exactly lining up behind the measure. The minority party says it wants concessions on other items from the governor before it can vote for the IMPROVE Act, and some Democrats say they won’t go for a combination of tax cuts for wealthy investors tied to a higher gas tax.

Saying free market forces should control development, state Rep. Glen Casada pushed a measure through the House Thursday targeting a Nashville ordinance placing affordable housing requirements on developers.

93. Democrats Kyle, Clemmons offer alternative transportation plan -

With an eye toward helping convicted felons clear their records for a fresh start, Rep. Raumesh Akbari is sponsoring legislation to dramatically cut expungement fees.

95. State DAs: Haslam's plan would hurt DUI enforcement -

They don’t get much press, but they are making history for women working with the General Assembly.

Murfreesboro resident Tammy Letzler is the first female to serve as chief clerk of either house of the General Assembly, following the trailblazing path of House Speaker Beth Harwell. And Memphis native Kim Cox is serving this session as assistant chief clerk, making her the first African-American female to take that role.
