One of Eric’s friends uses some of the land to hunt and has a trail camera setup in the woods that is motion activated. Last week, Eric was looking through still images on the camera when in between images of deer and bobcats he spotted what wildlife official believe could...

    After Roseanne Barr’s former costar gave us a pretty good indication of what the future holds for her character on the new spinoff show (spoiler alert: she doesn’t have a future in corporeal form), we were able to guess what direction the show was taking. But what about Roseanne herself? Is there room for a comeback after her allegedly racist Twitter rants or is she all washed up? Ms. Barr showed up on a podcast this week to bring everyone up to date on her plans and they’re probably not what you were expecting. First of all, she won’t be...

    Two teenagers were arrested after attempting to carjack two vehicles in the Green Hills area Tuesday evening. The suspects, ages 15 and 17, first tried to steal the car of a woman parked in the Hill Center parking garage on Hillsboro Pike around 6:20 p.m. Metro police reported they ran up to her vehicle, one on each side, opened the doors and yelled for her to get out. They then tried to pull her out of the car, but she screamed and held down her car horn, causing them to run off. The victim sustained minor injuries in the struggle...

    Eric Church, one of the headliners at the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas — the scene of the 2017 massacre known as the deadliest mass shooting by an individual in modern U.S. history — is blaming the NRA for the attacks. Church performed at the festival two nights before the shooting, and the experience has changed his views on guns “a little,” he says. While fellow country singer Jason Aldean was performing, a gunman opened fire on the crowd, killing at least 58 people. Now Church is speaking out about the incident. While he says he considers himself a...

It seems that the accelerating flow of jobs and peoples from larger cities, especially up north to Nashville, has current residents alarmed."“There is very little opposition in our town to growth,” said David Briley, newly elected mayor of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, in an interview. “I would say there is a high level of anxiety about the pace of growth.”" The...

    NASHVILLE— Kathleen Ervin moved here 12 years ago from the Northeast, drawn to the relaxed atmosphere, green parks and relatively low cost of living. But in the past five years, her commute time from her 1950s ranch house in the Glendale neighborhood to her job about 12 miles away has tripled on some days to 45 minutes because of increased traffic. Developers are buying nearby properties, tearing them down and building “tall skinnies”—multistory homes geared toward wealthier home buyers. “We hear all this talk about how Nashville doesn’t want to become Houston, Nashville doesn’t want to become Atlanta,” said the...

    Reverberations continue to sound in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race following President Donald Trump's trip last week to Nashville, where the president first attended a private fundraiser for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and then derided Democrat Phil Bredesen at a campaign-style rally downtown. During his speech, the president attacked Bredesen repeatedly, among other things calling the former Tennessee governor a "very liberal Democrat — I've never heard of this guy — who is he?" Trump then called him an "absolute total tool" of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., adding he specifically was recruited by Schumer with the approval of House...

    NY Times Admits It Lied About Crowd Size at Nashville Trump Rally, Corrects After POTUS Calls Them Out (Full Title) NASHVILLE, Tennessee–The New York Times has admitted that it lied about the size of the crowd at the Trump rally held in Nashville on Tuesday night, and changed their crowd estimate after the president called them out on Twitter.

    The New York Times has corrected a crowd size estimate it provided following President Trump's rally in Nashville, Tenn., on Tuesday night, after receiving sharp criticism from the president.The paper on Wednesday stated that attendance was more than five times larger than estimates it had originally reported. “While no exact figure is available, the fire marshal’s office estimated that approximately 5,500 people attended the rally, not about 1,000 people,” the correction stated. The correction comes after the president railed against the Times on Twitter Wednesday morning, accusing the newspaper of intentionally underestimating the crowd size and of being comprised of...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — President Donald Trump slammed frequent foe Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is battling brain cancer, for having voted against one of the measures that would have repealed Obamacare last year. Speaking at a rally here, and referring to McCain without using his name, Trump said his efforts to scrap President Obama's signature health care law were frustrated by the Arizona senator's decision to give a thumbs-down to the bill on the Senate floor in July. "We had it done folks, it was done, and then early in the morning somebody turned their hand in the wrong direction,"...

    The first thing I noticed when I walked into the Trump rally in Nashville Tuesday night ... was that Trace Adkins was singing. Not bad! (Hey, it’s Nashville.) The second thing I noticed was that Jim Acosta wasn’t smiling, virtually the only person in the auditorium who wasn’t. If you don’t like Adkins, either you don’t like music or your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so great you couldn’t even groove to Bach or The Beatles in their heydays. Too bad for Jim. ... But enough diversion. Trump’s on. They clearly love him in Nashville, but not Lamar Alexander and, especially,...
