There’s nothing wrong with trying something new on Thanksgiving Day, but we all know that too much of a good thing can be a problem.

With that in mind, Nashville’s ‘turkey day’ offerings for those fleet of foot include a new race this year – the first Music City Thanksgiving Day Run/Walk – to go along with its traditional dish, The Boulevard Bolt. And just like the decision to go with the candied yams or the green bean casserole, runners will have to make a choice since both events start at 8 a.m. on Nov. 22.

    When Nashville-based Silicon Ranch approached the Second Harvest Food Bank about a partnership that would cost them no money but save plenty, it seemed like too good a deal to pass up.

    Silicon Ranch wanted to install solar panels on the roof of their Great Circle Road facility at no cost. Instead, the estimated annual 2600 kilowatt hours harvested from the 840 panels would be returned to the grid, and the TVA would issue energy credits. Silicon Ranch and Second Harvest would each get a portion of those credits.
