lucky six-week old puppies will get to sleep in a warm home with loving foster
families tonight instead of the vacant home from where they were rescued by a
neighborhood by a network of East Nashville neighbors called East C.A.N. that

puppies from under an abandoned house," said Megan Myers, East C.A.N. volunteer.

that they're in warm houses for the night and on their way to being adopted and
finding homes forever is a great thing," Myers said.
while East C.A.N. works to find stray or abandoned animals homes year-round, they
really step up their efforts when they know the weather could be deadly for
these furry friends.
That's something great about East C.A.N.,"
Myers said. "Especially when it gets colder they're looking for those dogs that are just
chained up and they're offering to those neighbors something to keep the dogs
warm or if they're looking for a foster home for those dogs and then to find a
forever home for those dogs."
And while East C.A.N.'s mission to bring more and more animals out of the cold

Take-out beer allowed again
May 25, 2013 19:58 GMT
MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A change in state law means that officials are no longer cracking down on restaurants selling takeout craft beer.
The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/Zl8y7f) reports the new regulations mean the Smoky Mountain Brewery in Maryville is now serving "growlers" again. Growlers are jugs filled with draft beer that customers can take with them when the leave.
State regulators began cracking down on the practice earlier this year, which led to complaints from restaurants and patrons.
The Copper Cellar family of restaurants stopped selling takeout beer in all four of its East Tennessee locations for a time, but made changes in some locations that allowed sales to resume before the new law was passed.
Now, all their locations are able to offer the beer for off-site consumption.
