Re: “Mayors Vow Fight on Climate Change

Ask Mayor Strickland to join the mayors of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga and 184 other cities in signing the Mayors National Climate Action Agenda's letter committing to adopt, honor and uphold the Paris Climate Agreement goals despite President Trump's shortsighted withdrawal from the treaty....

Re: “Mayor: Memphis Situation Different from New Orleans on Confederate Statues

After we get rid of all the monuments to the slave traders and apologists, we need to rename the portion of Jackson Avenue that follows the state designated Historic Trail of Tears.

Re: “Protect the Mid-South’s Water!

Thank you, Jenna, and thank you for making your voice heard at the TVA board meeting in Murphreesboro last week.

As far as I know (I'm the only employee of the Sierra Club in Tennessee) we haven't raised a dime on this issue, but rather expended our very meager resources on it to the neglect of other equally important water quality issues across the state.

TVA is, by no means, the only industrial operation taking advantage of state and local laws that allow well owners to withdraw as much water as they want without paying a penny for it.

Due to the swell of public attention and support for this issue, we stand a strong chance of reforming our state and local laws to better protect this invaluable resource for future generations.

Many thanks to the County and State elected officials working to make this happen. We must act now to protect what may be our greatest asset.

Re: “Beale Street Music Festival 2017 Day 3: Sunday Funday

Understandable ;)
The matchup with Soundgarden was a conundrum, but I had to go with Sturgill--he may be our last hope to save outlaw country.

You forgot to mention Nashville-bucking Sturgill Simpson who plays more like a rockstar than a country crooner.

Re: “Kelsey, Harris File Legislation to Regulate Future Water Policy in West Tennessee (UPDATED)

Unfortunately, the legislation failed to move this year. Keep your fingers crossed for next year.
