Tucson connections in Nashville - 11/06/13

It's been a crazy month of getting adjust here in our new home of Nashville.  One of the feel-good aspects has been the number of Arizonans who have reached out. 

For example, I got a Facebook message from John Foster.  You might not know who he is, but he's the founder of Mays Counter, a great restaurant in Tucson.  He relocated to Nashville right after we did, to establish two new restaurants here!  Nashville Street Tacos and Mays Counter - Nashville.  Can I tell you how excited I am to get Sonoran hot dogs in Nashville???

Anyhow, John is just one of many who have made me feel even more comfortable in this transistion.  I'm so grateful for that!

TURNPIKE PIZZA-LAWSUIT

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- The New Jersey Turnpike Authority wants to take a bite out of a Florida pizza shop. The authority charges Jersey Boardwalk Pizza uses a logo that looks too much like the Garden State Parkway's green and yellow signs. The agency is suing the pizzeria in federal court. JoyAnn Kenny is the lawyer for Jersey Boardwalk Pizza. She says there's no way anyone would confuse a highway and a pizza place 1,300 miles away. The company operates two pizza shops and sells merchandise online. The Turnpike Authority is asking a judge to order the company to stop using the logos.

VETERAN-LOCKED IN VA CLINIC

DELTONA, Fla. (AP) -- Marine Corps veteran Jeffrey Duck says he was forgotten at a V-A clinic -- and locked inside. Duck says he went a central Florida community clinic operated by the Veteran's Administration Monday afternoon. He tells WKMG he was sitting in a consultation room for more than three hours, then realized he was alone. Walking in the lobby set off an alarm so Duck called 911 on his cellphone. The V-A is apologizing to Duck. Officials say they're reviewing their closing procedures.

NO NIKE SWOOSH

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- The swoosh is squashed -- at least for the moment. Adidas has invaded Nike's hometown, Eugene, Oregon, to sponsor the world junior track championships. Hayward Field has the trademark Nike swoosh logo. Crews preparing for the meet are covering the logos and pinning Adidas posters to the fence alongside the track. The Register-Guard newspaper reports the Adidas contract calls for a clean venue. But Bill Bowerman gets to stay. There won't be a bag thrown over the statue of the Nike co-founder and legendary University of Oregon track coach.

GOOGLE-FREE SHUTTLES

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) -- It would be another perk for Google's Silicon Valley neighbors. The technology giant is offering to provide free shuttle bus service in Mountain View, California. Google is proposing to foot the bill for four electric-powered shuttle buses. The San Jose Mercury News reports the plan is expected to be approved by the city council in September, with the buses rolling the next month. Google also provides free Wi-Fi in the city.
