    Vanderbilt exhibit explores lasting influence of experimental Black Mountain College
    From 1933 to 1957, the experimental Black Mountain College in rural North Carolina was a vital nexus for avant garde artists, poets, musicians and thinkers. Many who studied or taught there became extremely influential in the latter half of the 20th century, including Willem de Kooning, Ruth Asawa, Robert Motherwell, Cy Twombly, Allen Ginsberg, Robert Creeley, Albert Einstein and many others.

See below. These crimes all happened last night (2/14) between 7 - 9 p.m., within a few miles of each other. Each involved multiple suspects, possibly traveling in stolen vehicles. Please exercise extreme caution if walking in the early evening hours, even in what might be considered “safe” areas. Call the police at 615-862-8600 if you see anything suspicious. _______________ Metro Police are investigating after a man was shot near the Green Hills Branch of the Nashville Public Library. Police responded to several calls just after 7 p.m. Wednesday saying a man had been shot. The victim was found with a life-threatening gunshot wound to his stomach. Witnesses told police they heard several gunshots and saw a maroon Jeep Cherokee with three male black suspects inside leave the parking lot at a high rate of speed. The victim told police that the suspects jumped out of the Jeep and a bullet struck him. It is unclear whether the man was inside the library at the time of the shooting. _______________ Wednesday February 14, 2018, at 8:18 PM, Metro Nashville Police and Vanderbilt University Police responded to a report of an aggravated robbery at 18th Avenue South and Horton Ave. The victim stated that the two males approached him displaying handguns and pushed him to the ground, demanding his wallet and valuables. The suspects were last reported fleeing south bound away from campus. Police have a limited description of the suspects – reported as two black males wearing dark hoodies. _______________ Metro Police confirm a Green Hills salon employee was assaulted and robbed on Wednesday night around 9 p.m. The woman was taking out the trash at Salon YaYa on Crestmoor Road when a male black suspect approached her and demanded that she gives him her purse. The victim refused, and the man struck her in the face with his handgun. The suspect was seen leaving the area in a newer model Gold Ford Taurus with at least one other occupant in the vehicle.

  • Crieve Hall Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Poor, children with learning needs are not being cared for like others. IEP's are not followed and then principal acknowledges this even when met with information of how thhis breaks the law. His response was to basically get over it and accept it. This is also his 2nd year as a principal and lacks leadership ability. He struggles with being able to accept help. A large amount of staff left CH after his first year along with complaints to the board of education and teachers board from personnel. I am also told there is a current lawsuit underway because of this principals actions.

Mayor Megan Barry will participate in a publi...

Mayor Megan Barry will participate in a public signing event for Executive Order No. 40 on Urban Forestry Tuesday, February 13 at 1 PM at The Belmont University BookStore located at 1700 Portland Ave. This executive action recognizes trees as a public utility, establishes new guidelines to govern Metro’s planting and maintenance of trees, and appoints a new Urban Forestry Program Manager to lead and coordinate all Metro tree-related activities. Mayor Barry will be joined by District 18 Councilmember Burkley Allen; Belmont University President Bob Fisher; Metro’s new Urban Forestry Program Manager Naomi Rotramel; and appointed members of both Mayor Barry’s Livable Nashville Committee and the Metro Tree Advisory Committee. During recent heavy renovations, The Belmont Store went to great lengths to both protect and enhance the survival of a 60-70’ historic elm (ulmus Americana) tree on its property. It is Belmont University’s policy to try to preserve existing trees during any construction-related activities on its campus. Nashville’s recent development boom has placed significant pressure on the urban tree canopy, so Mayor Barry’s Livable Nashville sustainability plan has set an umbrella goal of 50 percent countywide tree-canopy coverage by the year 2050—an approximate addition of 300,000 net new trees planted by 2030, or 500,000 net new trees by 2050. Executive Order No. 40 seeks to help Nashville achieve its long-term sustainability goals: protecting air and water quality, improving public health, and saving public dollars on heavy infrastructure to mitigate stormwater impacts.
