Be a Music City Tourist! - 04/18/14

Happy Easter Weekend!  I hope you are having a great holiday.  I have family visiting from the northeast this week and have had a chance to play tour guide and tourist at the same time.  It's been fun! If you haven't taken the time to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame (most of us that live here probably haven't), take a trip downtown!  I had a blast there on Wednesday!  It's a great place to spend a few hours rolling down memory lane and learn more about this great place we call home. 
A friend once suggested that when she has family or guests that will be staying at her home for a few days, she would spend a night in the guest room before they arrive to make sure she had supplied everything her guest would need to make it as enjoyable as possible.  I always thought that is a great idea.  Take it a step further and play the role of tourist in your own town and check out all of the great things Nashville has to offer!  I bet you'll have a great time too!

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION-POLL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis. The Washington Post survey finds District of Columbia residents favor legalizing pot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. The ballot issue is being put to voters in the November election. But even if it passes, Congress could block the pot initiative from taking effect.

CLEMSON-SEX SURVEY

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.

WHEEL OF FORTUNE WIN

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on "Wheel of Fortune." The episode aired earlier this week. She's just the third person to win more than a mil on the long-running game show. Manchester says she's "soaking in every minute" of the big win. She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.

VIDEO GAME MUSEUM

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
