It was May 24, 1968, exactly 50-years-ago today, Haynie Gourley and Capitol Chevrolet vice president Bill Powell took a drive. The men headed up to the intersection of Elm Hill Pike and Spence Lane and stopped at a red light.

    Another eventful and historic week in Nashville is behind us. As you well know, the transit referendum failed to pass, and by a wide margin. This is particularly disappointing to District 17, which voted to support the transit plan. But we will go back to work and continue to seek solutions to a transportation problem that is not going away.
