TO NASHVILLE ... Palo Alto Mayor Yiaway Yeh plans to say farewell to his hometown early next year and take his talents to Nashville, Tenn., where his wife Cecilia Mo accepted a position at Vanderbilt University. Yeh, who was elected to the City Council in 2007 and who has been one of its leading voices on utilities and community engagement, has also been representing the city on the Northern California Power Agency, a nonprofit group for municipally owned utilities. In recognition of his service, the agency passed a special resolution for Yeh, recognizing his diligent and enthusiastic service. The resolution, which City Manager James Keene read to the council Monday night, also makes a bold prediction — that Yeh will be won over by Nashville's renowned country-music scene. The agency even offered several potential names for Yeh's first country album. These include "Table Tennis for Two," "I'm Not Late, You're Early" and "It's Yiaway or the Highway."
