The City Paper reports that Council Member and at-Large candidate Charlie Tygard, who originally supported the idea of an amphitheatre on the old Downtown thermal site, is now threatening to oppose it because the Mayor's Office is still not giving his district enough money to build a library (although they are getting enough money to buy land for a library). It sounds like, even if an amphitheatre were the best use for Nashville over all of the property, Charlie Tygard would still oppose it on smaller-minded grounds. No surprise there. He did it before in opposing Court House renovations.
