CASH FOR CANDY
Local Dentist Takes a Stand Against Sweets this Halloween
Nashville, TN

One area dentist is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can
bring their excess candy to The Aesthetic Dental Center in Nashville, TN and receive $1 per pound. Ann K Tucker, DDS is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking
candy.

“Ditch the candy, that’s what we’re saying. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative
measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Ann K Tucker, DDS from The Aesthetic Dental Center. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. Read More

Laughable Fundraiser Letter Bashing Me

Mister D: Below is a fundraising letter Jude Jones sent out to raise money for a Happy Birthday Bette fundraiser. However, all it did was bash me. Why this would be of interest to his followers, many who don’t know him, I don’t know. I can take apart this letter piece by piece as I always can do when he goes up against me because truth always wins out in the end. Please don’t make me put up your recent photo that a best friend of yours sent me again. As people will see, nobody would want to stalk you. They might want to keep an eye on you and what you say, but that’s it. I’ve been told he can be very dramatic by, you guessed it, some of his friends:

Rotten eggs in Metro County

“Last one in is a rotten egg,” is all I can think to myself concerning the fight for equal rights for Metro County workers when it comes to sexual orientation. Please don’t let Tennessee be the last of the ignorant states that can’t get it’s royal act together when it comes to the protection of its workers. Or we’ll be smelling like a rotten egg.

Council Member at Large Megan Barry has drafted a bill that would seek protection for sexual orientation which is currently off the books. So far, so good. Upon first reading, the bill passed, with the exception of nine men, most vocally, Metro Council Member Robert Duvall. Read More
