Nobody Trashes Tennessee
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Transportation today launched a new litter prevention campaign to help keep trash off Tennessee roadways. The “Nobody Trashes Tennessee” campaign will soon be seen on billboards and commercials, as well as educational programs and anti-litter promotional items.
“From the Great Smoky Mountain region, to the Mississippi River, and every stretch of roadway in between, litter on our highways takes away from Tennessee’s natural beauty,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “It’s not only an eyesore, but it costs TDOT more than $15 million a year to clean up.”
Papillion, NE – The Nashville Sounds hit back-to-back home runs two different times en route to a 7-3 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers Tuesday afternoon at Werner Park.

With Omaha leading 1-0 in the top of the second, Decker belted a home run to left field just moments after Matt Chapman drew a walk. Decker’s first long ball of the season gave Nashville (30-26) the lead for good at 2-1.
On the very next pitch from Omaha starter Josh Staumont, Matt McBride clobbered a solo homer to deep left field to extend the lead to 3-1.
