Nashville D-A Straw Poll Results - 04/04/14

  It's far from a scientific poll, but if Nashville's political crowd is representative of the rest of the city, Glenn Funk will be metro's next District Attorney.  Funk, a veteran prosecutor and defense attorney with nearly 30-years of experience, won Thursday night's straw poll at the "Not So Sure Shot Rabbit Hunter's Supper" at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

  Around seven hundred people attended the dinner, most of them politically "tuned In."  Funk received 63.41-percent of the vote in the straw poll.  That's almost twice as many votes as opponents Rob McGuire (24.39%) and Diane Lance (12.20%) received combined.  I don't live in Davidson County so I don't have a vested interested in the race.  That said, I've spent a lot of time in Nashville courtrooms and understand how important this position in.  Whomever you like, get out there and cast your vote. 

  Early voting in Nashville's starts on April 16-th.  Monday, the 7-th is the last day to register to vote in this race.  Election day is May 6-th.  Tell me who you like in this race and why.

WINTRY WEATHER-SKIING

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The winter storm that hit much of the East made it tough for Thanksgiving travelers. But it's good news to New England ski areas. Dave Meeker of Mount Snow in Vermont says it's a "dream come true." The resort opens for the season today. Noelle Tuttle, spokeswoman for Maine's Sugarloaf, says even the rumor of snow generates a lot of excitement. Area ski resorts say the early storm is getting people to think about skiing for their Christmas vacation.

BREWERS BARE IT

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- These brewers are baring more than their beer. Brawny beer makers are stripping for charity. The 2015 Brew Men Calendar features 11 brewing pros from the Sheboygan, Wisconsin, area. Not too surprisingly, the idea was hatched over some beers. But the brew men don't expose too much. Strategically placed pieces of beer making equipment protect their modesty. Sheboygan Press Media reports the calendars cost 20 bucks each, with the proceeds going to local charities.

SANTA BANK ROBBER

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Say it ain't so Santa! The FBI is looking for Santa Claus in a San Diego County bank robbery. Actually, Ol' Saint Nick isn't the suspect. Authorities are on the hunt for a robber who was wearing sunglasses, a fake beard and a Santa Claus hat. This evil elf was armed with a gun and demanded large bills from a teller at a Chase bank branch. Officials say no one was hurt and the gunman escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

ANIMAL MASSAGE

UNDATED (AP) -- Dog lovers want their best friends rubbed the right way. Shelah Barr is a San Francisco dog massage therapist. She says massage can give the four-legged members of the family "a high quality of life." But don't expect incense burning around the massage table. Barr says she'll often give her patients a bone to chew on. On Barr's Happy Hounds Massage website, an initial house call is listed at $90. Follow-up visits are 75 bucks.
