What I love about Nashville - 07/05/14

When I first came here I wasn't sure what to expect.  I lived in Memphis for 5 years and was wondering if Nashville would be the same.  I was pleasantly surprised.  First thing I noticed were all the rolling hills.  A nice change from the flat area of Louisiana I had been living in.  Then after moving here and making some new friends I learned there was more to it.  Plenty of great canoeing spots, awesome mountain biking trails and a vibrant downtown.  Speaking of downtown it's one of my favorite areas.  The concerts are amazing for Tootsie's birthdays, CMA fest and ringing in the new year.  Lastly,  I've never seen a better firework show than what we throw for the 4th of July.  It's cool to see them synced to an orchestra. All I can say from here is lets keep it and bring even more good things to this awesome town!

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- How to satisfy a woman isn't the sort of lesson a dorm director should be teaching. That's the view of officials at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The school is giving a scolding to Jude Legiste, a full-time university employee who runs Drake Hall. But officials tell the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that what Legiste did isn't a firing offense. Last month, he sent a graphic email with sex tips to students in the dorm. It contained an article by a female lawyer from New Zealand offering suggestions on stimulating women. Legiste tells The Associated Press he was trying to start a conversation about how to treat women but delivered the message in an "inappropriate fashion."


DENVER (AP) -- Some pot smokers in Colorado are getting out of joint -- over pesticides in their legal weed. Two pot users have sued the legal marijuana store LivWell over the use of a fungicide called Eagle 20 EW. The chemical can be dangerous when heated and can't be used on tobacco. Lawyers say it's the first product liability claim in the nation involving the legal marijuana industry. LivWell lawyer Dean Heizer says the nine-shop chain no longer uses Eagle 20 EW. Heizer adds no consumer illnesses have been linked to marijuana pesticides in Colorado or any other state.

Dairy Goat Business

PETERSBURG, Alaska (AP) -- Victor Nelson and his wife, Tabitha, are milking an idea. They're bringing goat's milk to southeast Alaska. Fresh dairy products are a rarity in the area. KFSK-FM reports the couple is supplying raw milk from their goats to people in Petersburg. The Nelsons started with just a pair of goats. Now, they have 30. Raw milk carries the risk of disease and is heavily regulated in the state. The Nelsons say they inform their customers about the risks. One customer adds the goat's milk makes nice, frothy lattes.


ELLENDALE, Del. (AP) -- A would-be gas station bandit didn't get what he wanted. Delaware State Police report a clerk chased the robber out of the station and its convenience store in Ellendale. Troopers report a man with a handgun demanded money from the clerk. Police add the clerk refused to hand over the cash and ran man out of the place. Officers say the robber was last seen running on a highway.
