Enclave » Breaking: Nashville Sounds owner scrubs the historic title "Sulphur Dell" from the name of the new ballpark
Sadcox expresses his pride at being a Ron Paul supporter this election cycle:
[I]t least this time–for the first time–I tried to do something about it other than wait until the general election to cast my protest vote for a guy who has no chance. Sure, I’ll be doing the same thing again this year, I just haven’t decided which guy with no chance I’ll be voting for. More importantly, this year I was motivated to do something about it. This year there was someone worth contributing to. There was a message worth getting behind.

The Nashville City Paper notes some impressive endorsements going the way of U.S. Democratic Senate candidate Mike Padgett:
Speculation is that the endorsements of Padgett may signal more of a slap against Tuke for what wounds he may have created as party chairman than any great groundswell of support for Padgett.SEE ALSO: Tuke's endorsements Truman Bean

From the Executive Director of the Tennessee Ethics Commission.
No one can deny that the public may always remain skeptical about ethics reform. However, I welcome anyone to review the commission's Web site or attend a public commission meeting and decide for themselves whether the ethics reforms have been successful in fostering an enhanced ethical climate in Tennessee.

Jackson Baker reports that Shelby County District Attorney General Bill Gibbons will run for Tennessee's Governor in 2010 if...
Whatever course the others may take, Gibbons is explicit about one thing: "If Frist runs, I'll support him!" But he's equally insistent that, otherwise, he's in the running. "I make no bones about it. I'm a candidate," he said at Saturday's "Bob Patterson Barbecue" event, sponsored by the Shelby County Young Republicans and held at Kirby Farms in honor of the late Trustee, who died unexpectedly early this year.SEE ALSO: Richard Locker profiles the candidate.

Tim Chavez takes on what he sees as hypocrisy by Congressman Marsha Blackburn:
Blackburn is a political hypocrite of the worst kind. If she is re-elected, she will return to Congress severely compromised for her apparent failure to properly report campaign contributions in a timely manner by FEC rules. Her effectiveness for the people of the 7th District such as myself will be curtailed, and rightly so. Even for Congress, her failures are beyond blush. And they are reminiscent of the financial difficulties she had as head of the state film office. We had been warned.
