    Recently the Wall Street Journal published an article titled As Nashville Rapidly Expands, Residents Worry the Metropolis Is Growing Too Fast, and it beautifully illustrates the basic principles of building a real estate investment index. It seems that the accelerating flow of jobs and peoples from larger cities, especially up north to Nashville, has current residents alarmed."“There is very little opposition in our town to growth,” said David Briley, newly elected mayor of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, in an interview. “I would say there is a high level of anxiety about the pace of growth.”" The...

    NASHVILLE— Kathleen Ervin moved here 12 years ago from the Northeast, drawn to the relaxed atmosphere, green parks and relatively low cost of living. But in the past five years, her commute time from her 1950s ranch house in the Glendale neighborhood to her job about 12 miles away has tripled on some days to 45 minutes because of increased traffic. Developers are buying nearby properties, tearing them down and building “tall skinnies”—multistory homes geared toward wealthier home buyers. “We hear all this talk about how Nashville doesn’t want to become Houston, Nashville doesn’t want to become Atlanta,” said the...

    Reverberations continue to sound in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race following President Donald Trump's trip last week to Nashville, where the president first attended a private fundraiser for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and then derided Democrat Phil Bredesen at a campaign-style rally downtown. During his speech, the president attacked Bredesen repeatedly, among other things calling the former Tennessee governor a "very liberal Democrat — I've never heard of this guy — who is he?" Trump then called him an "absolute total tool" of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., adding he specifically was recruited by Schumer with the approval of House...

    NY Times Admits It Lied About Crowd Size at Nashville Trump Rally, Corrects After POTUS Calls Them Out (Full Title) NASHVILLE, Tennessee–The New York Times has admitted that it lied about the size of the crowd at the Trump rally held in Nashville on Tuesday night, and changed their crowd estimate after the president called them out on Twitter. In their original story on the Trump rally, the Times claimed the crowd size was only 1,000–a number that everyone in attendance Tuesday night knew was a misrepresentation of the much larger crowd at the Municipal Auditorium to listen to President...

    The New York Times has corrected a crowd size estimate it provided following President Trump's rally in Nashville, Tenn., on Tuesday night, after receiving sharp criticism from the president.The paper on Wednesday stated that attendance was more than five times larger than estimates it had originally reported. “While no exact figure is available, the fire marshal’s office estimated that approximately 5,500 people attended the rally, not about 1,000 people,” the correction stated. The correction comes after the president railed against the Times on Twitter Wednesday morning, accusing the newspaper of intentionally underestimating the crowd size and of being comprised of...

    . President Trump campaigned in Tennessee on Tuesday night for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, blasting her Democratic opponent as a “tool” of congressional Democratic leaders and a supporter of Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. Speaking at a boisterous rally in Nashville, Mr. Trump criticized Democrat Phil Bredesen, a former two-term governor, as “very liberal.” “He’s an absolute, total tool of Chuck Schumer and the MS-13 lover, Nancy Pelosi,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the Democratic leaders of the Senate and House. “They don’t want the wall, they want open borders. They’re more interested in taking care of criminals than taking...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — President Donald Trump slammed frequent foe Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is battling brain cancer, for having voted against one of the measures that would have repealed Obamacare last year. Speaking at a rally here, and referring to McCain without using his name, Trump said his efforts to scrap President Obama's signature health care law were frustrated by the Arizona senator's decision to give a thumbs-down to the bill on the Senate floor in July. "We had it done folks, it was done, and then early in the morning somebody turned their hand in the wrong direction,"...

    The first thing I noticed when I walked into the Trump rally in Nashville Tuesday night ... was that Trace Adkins was singing. Not bad! (Hey, it’s Nashville.) The second thing I noticed was that Jim Acosta wasn’t smiling, virtually the only person in the auditorium who wasn’t. If you don’t like Adkins, either you don’t like music or your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so great you couldn’t even groove to Bach or The Beatles in their heydays. Too bad for Jim. ... But enough diversion. Trump’s on. They clearly love him in Nashville, but not Lamar Alexander and, especially,...

    As more is becoming known about Travis Reinking, the suspect wanted for murdering four people in a Nashville area Waffle House this morning, we’re hearing a familiar refrain. Reinking was well known to both federal and state authorities. In July 2017, the U.S. Secret Service arrested Reinking for being in a “restricted area” near the White House, according to the Secret Service. After the arrest, his Illinois firearms authorization was revoked and local Illinois police seized four weapons. The firearms were given back to his family. “Among the weapons seized by those authorities was the AR-15 rifle used at the...
