Titans Caravan kicks off - 05/13/14

The annual Tennessee Titans Caravan has rolled out.  First Florence, then Madison, Alabama last night.  Fittingly, considering Chance Warmack was one of the players along for the initial ride.

The Titans offensive lineman starred at the University of Alabama during his college days.  Therefore, he was right at home on this trip, as you can see in the picture to the right.

Crimson Tide fans lined up to get autographs and pose for pictures with Warmack and Titans center Brian Schwenke.  As people like to say in the South, everyone had a "big" time with a couple of "big" linemen.

The Titans Caravan will make stops in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama between now and May 17.  Plus, there will be a special stop in Johnson City on June 13th.

Tonight it's just outside Memphis in Collierville.  I'll try to bring you pictures of that on FOX 17 News at Nine and Ten.

NEW YORK (AP) -- It looks good enough to eat. A new art exhibit in the Big Apple takes a bite out of food. "The Value of Food: Sustaining a Green Planet" has works from 30 artists. The exhibit is divided into seven themes: water, soil, seed, farm, market, meal and waste. Guest co-curator Robin Kahn says they hope visitors will "look at food in a new way that's more beneficial not only to them but to the Earth." The multimedia exhibition opened last week at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan.


SEATTLE (AP) -- The law of supply and demand is going to be studied -- when it comes to pot. A new group at the University of Washington law school will look at markets for marijuana. The yearlong study will help inform the state as it prepares to combine the medical and recreational marijuana markets. The project will try to estimate the demand for legalized weed.


HELSINKI (AP) -- They were the good guys. Police in Sweden were called about a group of suspicious, bearded men with a black flag in the ruins of a castle. Authorities feared they could be Islamic State sympathizers. But these guys were a bunch of do-gooders. John Ekeblad is a co-founder of the Swedish chapter of the Bearded Villains. He says the so-called villains promote equality and do charity work. Ekeblad says the incident was "hilarious," and police drove off laughing.


DENVER (AP) -- It's the feds versus the makers of kombucha. That's a fermented tea that has moved from the natural foods aisle to the mainstream. Federal authorities say the brewers of the tea need to relabel their product to reflect it can contain alcohol. But the tea makers say it's a natural byproduct of the fermentation process. Makers of the tea are asking for new federal tests. They say the alcohol level is so low, many fruits have a similar content from natural fermentation.
