New state law gives Metro authority to hike hotel tax

Thanks to a newly passed state law, the Metro Council will have the authority to raise the city’s hotel tax 50 cents per room to create a tourism development fund designed to attract and keep major events.

This year, the state Legislature approved and Gov. Phil Bredesen signed into law a bill that permits Metro to increase its hotel privilege tax from $2 to $2.50 per occupied room.

The estimated $2.5 million to $3.5 million raised from that 50-cent increase will go into a Music City “Event and Marketing Fund,” which will be used for promoting tourism.

Walt Baker, the chief executive officer of the Greater Nashville Hotel & Lodging Association, said the new fund must go toward major events that have at least a $5 million economic impact on the city, such as the upcoming CMA Fest.

2008 NRBC to air on Wide World of Horses on RFD-TV



Excitement and anticipation filled the arena as run after polished run was made at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy Texas. The 2008 National Reining Breeders Classic was a show no one wanted to miss.

Watching Shawn Flarida and Mandy McCutcheon earn the top two spots in the Open and Non Pro divisions, Topsail Whiz becoming the first NRBC Million Dollar Sire, Brent Wright earn Million Dollar National Reining Horse Association Status, and KR Lil Conquistador become the highest money earning horse in NRHA history made the day of many reining fans.

Luckily, those highlights and moments can be seen again when the NRBC airs on Wide World of Horses on RFD-TV June 2 and June 30.

Just another Nashville moment and another reason I love this city!

Jay Leno tells Detroit to make better cars



"It ain't that hard folks -- make better cars." That's the word aimed at Detroit from Jay Leno, the late-night television host and avid hands-on car nut. According to Leno, nobody builds trucks as well as Americans, as he cites the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado as examples. Same goes with performance cars. "The Corvette Z06 has 505 horsepower, comes with a big warranty, and can hit 200 miles per hour. It weighs almost exactly the same as a half-million-dollar Porsche Carrera GT and gets higher mileage - 26 miles per gallon," states Leno.
~~~
Leno suggests that Detroit follow the example of Harley-Davidson, which turned around its quality-control problems and re-established itself as a market leader. Leno adds, "I believe that, all things being equal, Americans will buy American. It just has to be as good as the competition; it doesn't have to be better."

Vince Young Party Picture Apology


Today, Titans quarterback Vince Young apologized to children who may have seen shirtless pictures of him in a bar, including one where he appears to drink liquor straight from the bottle. Even so, he doesn't believe he did anything wrong:

"I apologize to some of the kids if they did see it because I am trying to be a role model for them. But at the same time, I was just trying to have fun with (friends). That is the life of a quarterback, somebody of my status. I guess somebody was trying to make some money and sold the picture to the web site. But at the same time that is the life I chose to live. But it is not going to stop me from having fun. I just have to watch myself. They always want to try and get some negative pub on me. It wasn't really nothing bad. ... Everybody deserves to have a good time every once in a while during the offseason."

And when he says "every once in a while," I'm guessing his definition is different than most people's. Below the gallery is a selection of six Vince Young birthday party links (and pictures) from just last weekend hosted by a promotion group called "inDmix."

Mutt is a dumb dog!!! to leave Shania for Marie-Anne



Marie-Anne Thiébaud, a 37-year-old woman who previously worked as secretary and house manager in Switzerland for Shania Twain and husband Robert John "Mutt" Lange, says she is not the cause of the couple's marital problems. A spokesman for the singer's record label last week confirmed that Twain and Lange, her producer and co-writer, are separating after 14 years of marriage. Contacted in Switzerland by E! News, Thiébaud said, "When marriages break up, they break up for all sorts of complicated reasons -- it's never just one reason. And those reasons should be kept private." She added, "If you're looking for a person that broke up a marriage, then you have the wrong person. I'm not that person." Lange has also denied that Thiébaud was the source of the couple's personal problems.

Read the rest of the story at CMT.



The news of domestic unrest in Shania Twain's life is troubling. If the Shania Twain-Robert "Mutt' Lange split is permanent, it will be a monumental creative divorce. Maybe not a pairing and subsequent split-up on the order of Lennon-McCartney, but, nevertheless, the Twain-Lange musical partnership remains the most successful collaboration ever in country music history. Together, they built a country music edifice like no other.

These amazing men stayed at our hotel recently and they told stories of their time in the war and they had pictures and books that were written by men involved in the battles and flying these missions that most of us would wimp out over.

I have to agree with Tom Brokaw, that this was the "greatest generation." Thank you gentlemen for your service and love for our great nation.

Nashville International Airport is ranked sixth in customer satisfaction



Nashville International Airport's sixth-place ranking came in the small airport category, which includes airports that serve less than 10 million passengers per year. The airport's satisfaction index score was 691, based on a 1,000-point scale.

The Nashville airport was bested by Dallas Love Field, which scored a 709, enough to land in the top spot in satisfaction in the small-airport category. Houston Hobby International was second with 700 points, San Antonio International was third with 699, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International was fourth with 698 points and El Paso International was fifth with 693 points.

Hobo Film Festival is on tour

I always wanted to hop on a train and see the country in the true hobo way but I never did. I would love to see the film from Shawn Lukitsch and to see what he has to offer. I hope someone makes it to one of his showings and gives me a full review of the film.
~Corey aka C.S. Webbspun


Photo is from the New York Times

For nearly as long as rail lines have crisscrossed the country, there have been stories about wanderers covertly climbing aboard train cars and riding away from problems or speeding toward some glimmering promise on the horizon.

The paths of train hoppers, tramps, hobos and travelers, looking for work, adventure or merely free transportation, have been recorded in lyrics and in literature. Jack Kerouac, Jack London and John Steinbeck have written about them. They have populated the songs of Merle Haggard
and Woody Guthrie.

More recently, filmmakers have documented the experience of riding the rails across the country’s varied terrain. And some of those works were recently screened in a storefront community center in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, as part of a traveling cinematic exhibition called the Hobo Film Festival, which is progressing from state to state by way of a $200 Toyota station wagon driven by a 31-year-old train hopper from Asheville, N.C., named Shawn Lukitsch.

Some great horse related stories in the paper today


The gelding we nicknamed Big Brown, in honor of the Kentucky Derby winner, loped off to the far corner of the arena as if he were looking for a place to hide. I exchanged frustrated frowns with my teammate, Shanda Steenburn, a tall, curly-haired nurse and hospital pharmacy manager.

We were participating in an introductory exercise at the Horse Institute in Ancramdale, N.Y. Our assignment was to catch Big Brown, slip a halter over his head and hook him to a lead line.

Our seemingly simple task was proving to be more daunting than either of us had expected. Shanda knew a lot about handling medications for humans but next to nothing about handling horses.

My previous experience with horses was limited and not especially pleasant. I’d taken fewer than a dozen riding lessons during my youth in Texas. The last time I’d been on a horse as an adult, I’d suffered a back injury that took three months to heal.

To make matters worse, Big Brown shared the arena with three other very large and very wary steeds: a white one, a second brown one and one with a mottled brown and white coat, a breed called a paint. Three pairs of nurses who worked with Shanda at Columbia Memorial Hospital in nearby Hudson, N.Y., were simultaneously trying to catch and halter those horses. But instead of cooperating, the paint, the white and the second brown kept darting away and huddling with Big Brown.

Suddenly, Big Brown separated from the herd and walked toward me. I patted his neck and stroked his face, cooing sweet nothings in his ear for at least a minute. Shanda handed me a halter. As if on cue, Big Brown bolted away again.

Read the entire story HERE.


A thoroughbred named Tchaikovsky, a grandson of Secretariat, was having a tooth pulled in one stall. A horse in another was given a sponge bath. Out the stable door, about a dozen horses shared a sun-lit field.

Somewhere, far out of sight if not entirely out of mind, countless other former racehorses were on their way to being slaughtered.

“I struggle with it,” Diana Koebel said. She is the owner and trainer here at LumberJack Farm, one of hundreds of horse farms around the country helping rescue and rehabilitate thoroughbreds considered too slow or damaged to be worth anything more than horse meat. The rescuers cannot keep up.

“Are we really helping?” Koebel asked as she stood in a stable stall. “I know we are, and every one counts, but it’s overwhelming at points. Can we really fix this industry?”

LumberJack Farm works with a nonprofit organization called ReRun, which prepares discarded racehorses for a second career — as jumping show horses, maybe, or just as pets — and then makes them available for adoption. ReRun annually places about 40 thoroughbreds once destined for the slaughterhouse.

Sweet sorghum as the next great fuel?

Pass the biscuits and fill up the car.... ~Corey



The hardy sweet sorghum plant could be the miracle crop that provides cheap animal feed and fuel without straining the world's food supply or harming the environment, said scientists working on a pilot farming project in India.

"We consider sweet sorghum an ideal 'smart crop' because it produces food as well as fuel," William Dar, Director General of the non-profit International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) said in a statement.

Sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is the world's fifth largest grain crop after rice, corn, wheat and barley.
