  1. Related to the new Window Cliffs State Park: http://herald-citizen.com/stories/beer-permit-issued-for-cafe-near-parks,19803 You could get a local Dad Bod IPA and a fried bologna sandwich.
  2. Crushed.
  3. Gut wrenching...not literally like Krystal...but figuratively. http://www.tennessean.com/story/entertainment/dining/2017/02/16/whataburger-clarifies-posting-not-coming-nashville/97998116/
  4. Yes, before I read the whole way through...I had to rub my eyes at "Williamsburg." Williamsburg is a long lost town under Cordell Hull lake in Jackson County; Williamsburg...is that now a subdivision on Hwy 70?
  5. You shouldn't feel sorry for DD, check their drivethru lines each morning. Feel sorry for those of us waiting on DD coffee. Again, Big O's tops Ralph's...although a minority opinion, others share this position.
  6. Yep; that's Cookeville High. Lots of public and private construction activity these days around and near campus hopefully fulfilling some of that potential.
  7. The future home of sign for the hotel/conference is up; erected after a drawn out property issue was settled. It's exciting; the Westside is really popping now with more and more local attractions coming online. The former Bight of the Bend barbeque restaurant out of Gainesboro is being reinvented as The Blue Pig, and the second microbrewery is coming along. FYI, The Blue Pig will also be an Oyster House...if in town...get their shrimp and grits along with any of their smoked meats.
  8. Witnessed some of those latter games; Tech has done quite a bit to promote and coordinate the game day experience; however, a more modern stadium will do so much more in that regard.
  9. Saw this commercial last night during the Grizzlies game. Reese Witherspoon's store in 12 South got a nice plug.
  10. Yes, I believe that's correct about the enclosure. As I understand, the videoboard installation is part of a larger $32 million disclosed project for athletics.
  11. A bit of news from January from Chattanooga's TFP; the videoboard referenced below is budgeted at $2.9 million. This disclosed project is funded by $1 million in gifts along with $1.9 million in plant funds. Cookeville will continue through 2020 as the site of Tennessee's BlueCross Bowl high school state football championship games, the TSSAA's Board of Control decided Thursday after bid presentations by Cookeville and Clarksville. Cookeville, Putnam County and Tennessee Tech University have hosted the football state finals the past eight years. TTU athletic director Mark Wilson, who headed the bid-winning delegation, said in a release that his group is "humbled and thrilled" to get another four years as host. "We feel we've created a standard of excellence by providing a Division I bowl-like experience for Tennessee's student-athletes, their fans and families and look foward to the ongoing partnership with the TSSAA board and its staff to take the experience to an even higher level," Wilson said. The bid package included the same $253,000 guarantee as in past years and promises of enhancements to Tucker Stadium, including a videoboard to be installed this year.
  12. Never mind, I think I've found it: The proposed site for the new Science building is the block between Peachtree and Stadium drives and between the engineering complex and Capitol Quad housing. The site currently accommodates 859 cars which are highly visible.
  13. Wasn't the new Chemistry Building (about to break ground) located in the Volpe Library parking area, the future parking area above has been adjusted for green space to the rear of the Volpe Libray...where is the new Chemistry Building?
  14. And Jimmy John's is about to open just down from Kroger.
  15. Lebanon development: CHICKEN! CHICKEN! CHICKEN! South Hartmann Dr near I40 interchange development is a Bojangles store as they continue their expansion westward from the Upper Cumberland. I believe the construction on South Cumberland near I40 is a Popeye's store....as I was told.
