Channel 2 management is searching for a news director. We humbly present to them a superb candidate: Bob Mueller, a.k.a. “Slapshot.” Poised. Connected. Knows the city. Can handle a hockey stick and hit a golf ball too. Already has a job in the building. Did the job once before, but didn’t mesh with then-anchor John Seigenthaler. Résumés are pouring in from hole-in-the-wall stations in prairie towns, but we like Bob. ♦ Ever since the Burger King on 21st Avenue was replaced by that fancy bread store, we’ve been wondering what happened to Burger King Betty. She was the longtime traffic and parking czarina who used to shoo away people who were trying to snag a Burger King parking spot to go visit someplace else nearby. BKB, if you’re reading this, would you call the Scene at 244-7989, ext. 445, and let us know what you’re up to? Inquiring minds want to know. ♦ We heard that defense attorney Charlie Ray had bought a castle in Ireland, but he tells us that’s a canard. Ray does say that he’s officially semi-retired and whatever legal work he plans to do in the future will be done out of his barn on Pecan Valley Road in Northwest Nashville. “I guess I’m a barnyard lawyer,” he says. Ray says he’s turning over most of his work to his partner Chip Frensley. ♦ Spin doctor Joe Hall is leaving The Ingram Group and taking a gaggle of clients with him. Halla former biz reporterruns in those vague circles where media, government and lobbyists gather and billing statements rain down from the sky. He’ll do well. ♦ If John Kerry wins the nomination, local attorney Bob Tuke wins too. Tuke is a Vietnam War vet and longtime Kerry backer. So far, so good.
