"I really got to be honest," White said. "It wasn't a lot of major diet changes. (It was) watching what I drink. I was a big Patron consumer. ... That's what it was. I was drinking a lot, drank a lot of alcohol. I cut that out of my diet all the way. I don't drink at all. I cut the drinking, I stopped drinking for six months. "It started falling off."Now I'm no tequila expert, but according to this really convincing website a shot of Patron has between 69 and 104 calories. Which would mean, in order to account for a loss of 30 pounds, the previous, non-teetotaling version of White would have had to have drank approximately a case per day. Lineman Michael Roos does a good job of summing up the guarded optimism towards the newly svelte White (who is, after all, in a contract year) with this masterful display of passive-aggressive locker-room quote-making.
"Hopefully, he'll be able to last longer than he has in the past and go deep in the season and help us out," All-Pro left tackle Michael Roos said. "We've still got time to see what happens, but he's looking good so far."
As a concerned citizen and Christian, I am very disturbed by the proposal that Metro government relinquish its' right not to hire homosexuals into the departments it governs. Of particular concern are those related to family, educational and community development where the presence of a homosexual could negatively influence traditional, Godly values. The Holy Bible, the uncontestable word of God, makes very clear that homosexuality is an abomination. Making special provisions for those that engage in this sin not only promotes it, but places Metro government in opposition with God's laws. The Bible not only contains very clear warnings about the consequences of homosexuality, but God clearly warns all those who simply "tolerate" or "approve of " it will be held just as accountable as those who engage it in. Please understand that I have no hatred for homosexual individuals. As a Christian, I love them and, therefore, pray that they will come to realize their sin, repent for it, and turn from it. I also pray that you personally will state your opposition to this sin and not provide a comfortable means for individuals to continue in it. Respectfully, Nicolette R. Lucak, Member Nolensville Road Baptist Church
Mr. BLANK, I live at BLANK. I think I am in your district. My question is how do I find out more information on the convention center? I am interested in the projections Nashville CVB is using to determine future demand. It seems to me technology and a desire to be energy efficient will change the face of the convention business. What is your current thinking?Mr. Curious thinks the convention business is changing. This makes him one smart dude. Our fearlessly engaged citizen then attended the debate between Nashville CVB president Butch Spyridon and meetings industry Cassandra Heywood Sanders. Mr. Curious was not impressed:
Mr. BLANK, I don't know whether or not you were at yesterday's discussion at Vanderbilt but I hope you were. After yesterday's meeting it is apparent that Nashville wants to move forward and believes we are special enough to overcome market forces but it is also apparent that the group recommending the New Convention Center has failed to take a critical look at the "largest project in Nashville's history." I surely hope that you will use your vote and influence to at least slow the process down long enough to look at new scenarios that are quite possible if not highly probable.Holy crap. Not only is Mr. Curious curious, he's also insightful enough to see through the city's flawed logic: That simply because we've got some honkytonks, an NFL team and a sweet skyscraper shaped like a superheroes mask, we're somehow going to reverse the flow of an industry's decade-long decline. I'm starting to like this guy. I sure hope answers his question...
"That's exactly what's wrong with our business," Stallings said. "There's a mentality where coaches want to cover themselves and not get out there and say what's right and call out the people that are wrong. "That's precisely why things are the way they are. That's why we have culture issues in our game. It's a darn shame. The people who could have influence and do have a voice, they choose not to use it because it doesn't help them. They don't want anything unsettling their smooth little boat ride."
But supporting infill development comes with a price, and it's a hefty one for "neighborhood" Council members to pay. Instead of paying lip service to infill as an idea only, Council members must proactively work with Nashville's development community; the time has come to move beyond preaching the value of land reuse and infrastructure utilization. The Council member ought to be soliciting development in their districts.My first though is that, in Rau's hands, "'neighborhood' Council members" is thrown around like a slur. Second? Since when did it become a Council members job to sell developers on the idea of building in their districts? See also: Enclave
The old Nashville Banner column was "Why do the heathen rage" or something like that.
