    Live from Music Row Tuesday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. –  host Leahy welcomed Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles in the studio to further discuss the growing field of candidates for Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District. Leahy: In studio with us, the Mayor of Maury County, that bastion of freedom, that turbocharged engine of economic growth, Andy Ogles. Andy, for the third consecutive week, (Ogles chuckles) I will ask you the big question. When are you going to decide whether or not you will run for the Republican nomination for the 5th Congressional District in Tennessee in the House of Representatives? Ogles: The 5th Congressional District, if you’re not paying attention, is worth watching. It’s a very dynamic situation. You’ve got legislation that just passed the state Senate. It moves to the state House next. You’ve got the SEC rules. Leahy: State Executive Committee of the Tennessee Republican Party. Ogles: And they’ll have a meeting tentatively, and that’s the operative word there...
    Britney Spears’ Conservatorship: Why Picking a New Lawyer Isn’t Simple California’s Racial Quota for Company Boards Is Challenged in Lawsuit Before he became an executive director for a Black player coalition in Major League Soccer, Justin Morrow received death threats during high school in Cleveland when media coverage of his soccer talents became too much for some. © Submitted: Black Players for Change Justin Morrow, 33, is the executive director for Black Players for Change and is a fullback for Toronto FC in Major League Soccer. Before Jeremy Ebobisse became a board member for that same coalition, the Portland Timbers forward was a youngster from Bethesda, Maryland, enduring N-word taunts from opponents in his club soccer games. Calling out systemic racism in society and vying for more opportunities for Black people in MLS is nothing new for Morrow and Ebobisse – but they used to do so on their own. Start the day smarter.

    Sarah Fuller was glued to the bench this past weekend during Vanderbilt’s NCAA soccer tournament to Penn State. The Nittany Lions beat the Commodores this past Saturday, and the soccer goalie didn’t see a second of action, according to the Tennessean. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) “The decision won’t be made because Sarah Fuller has been in the limelight for football. It will be made based on what our goalkeepers have done for the last month or two,” head coach Darren Ambrose told the media prior to the PSU game about Fuller riding the pine, according to the same report.

    Hue Jackson will reportedly join Eddie George’s staff at Tennessee State. According to the Tennessean, the former Cleveland Browns head coach will join the Tigers as the team’s offensive coordinator. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The move has been expected, and it’s now apparently close to being officially done. Ex-Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson expected to be Tennessee State offensive coordinator https://t.co/uT8jk6euuY — Tennessean (@Tennessean) April 14, 2021 Eddie George is putting together one hell of a staff at the FCS level. Jeff Fisher is helping him in the hiring process and now Jackson will reportedly join the staff. That’s three guys with serious NFL experience involved with the Tigers.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Tennessee State Football (@tennstatefb) For an FCS program, I’m not sure how you can beat that. FCS teams don’t pull major recruiting talent, but having this much NFL experience on staff with George at head coach should generate a huge recruiting boost. Short of Deion Sanders at Jackson State, I’m not...
    A new Tennessee bill would give fathers the ability to protect their unborn baby if the mother decided to obtain an abortion. Republican Tennessee Sen. Mark Pody and Republican Tennessee Rep. Jerry Sexton sponsored SB494/HB1079, legislation that would give the father veto power on an abortion through petitioning a court for an injunction. The bill would also require that the father “execute a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity that is not subject to being rescinded or challenged.” “I believe a father should have a right to say what’s gonna be happening to that child,” Pody said, according to the Tennessean. “And if somebody is going to kill that child, he should be able to say, ‘No, I don’t want that child to be killed. I want to able to raise that child and love that child.'” A judge could grant the father’s request as long as he can prove he is the biological father and if there is a “reasonable possibility” the mother would seek an abortion, the publication reported. The bill does not make exceptions for rape or incest. The...
    Police visited Nashville bomber Anthony Warner’s home over one year ago after his girlfriend said he was building bombs in the RV, documents show. Warner blew up a city block in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, early Christmas morning, police said. He died in the explosion and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation declared that he wasn’t on their “radar” before the incident. However, an August 2019 report from the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) shows that his ex-girlfriend Pamela Perry made authorities aware of alleged bomb-making over a year earlier, The Tennessean reported. Perry informed police that Warner “was building bombs in the RV trailer at his residence” on Aug. 21, 2019, a report from MNPD indicates. Police connected with Perry when her attorney, Raymond Throckmorton III, called them that day over concerns about alleged suicidal threats she was making as she sat outside her home with guns, the Associated Press reported, citing an MNPD statement. Throckmorton told police that he represented Warner as well. Perry’s comments about the alleged bomb making were given to the FBI and police went to Warner’s home...

    With the 2020 Country Music Association Awards set to kick off on Wednesday, the show will be delivered to fans a bit differently because of the coronavirus pandemic. While the CMAs will still take place from Nashville, Tenn., the extravaganza will not be broadcasting from its regular home at Bridgestone Arena and will instead be relocated across the street to the more intimate Music City Center. This year will be without the exciting red carpet in an attempt to mitigate the spread of the virus and although the show will not have fans in attendance, artists who are scheduled to perform, their staff and any guests they bring will be permitted into the venue. Co-hosted by country legends Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, who are slated to perform a tribute collaboration, others gracing the stage at the shindig include Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line.

              BRENTWOOD, Tennessee — Two reporters directed loaded questions from the political left at U.S. Sen. Elect Bill Hagerty at a press conference he held in Brentwood Tuesday afternoon. Hagerty held the conference, before election results arrived, in front of the Brenthaven Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Madisen Keavy, with the Knoxville-based WATE, asked Hagerty to “address voters’ concerns that if President Trump does not win tonight that he may not leave the White House as the law says.” Hagerty said he felt certain in a positive result and felt great about his own race. “One vote is the rule in America,” Hagerty said. “I am certain he [Trump] will accept the results.” Earlier, Hagerty said he felt “honored to have the support of so many Tennesseans.” “We are reaching out not only to Republicans but to independents, Democrats, all Tennesseans,” Hagerty said. “I want to be the best representative I can possibly be of Tennessee conservative values in the United States Senate.” But that didn’t stop Tennessean reporter Natalie Allison from asking this: “Throughout the...

              The Tennessean’s Director of Opinion and Engagement David Plazas formally apologized late last week for publishing a column that former Nashville mayoral candidate Carol Swain submitted and wrote five years ago that criticized Islam. Swain, when The Tennessee Star contacted her Tuesday, said Plazas smeared her and “had lost all sense of journalistic integrity.” Plazas apologized for publishing Swain’s opinion piece in a Tennessean column of his own last Friday. Swain said Plazas’ “personal politics influenced his decision.” “As for The Tennessean, they can no longer call themselves journalists. They have been moving in the wrong direction for a long time and, for me, I have tried to support them because they are local,” Swain said. “They cover news that reaches a wide spectrum of the public, so it’s a community resource but it’s not one I will be using or supporting anymore.” Plazas did not return The Star’s requests for comment before Tuesday’s stated deadline. In his column, Plazas first apologized for an ad that he said The Tennessean staff accidentally approved and published this month that warned Islam was planning to attack Nashville using a...
    Following the publication of a full-page Sunday ad that predicted a nuclear attack in Nashville by "Islam," the Tennessean newspaper and its parent company Gannett said Monday that an advertising manager was fired, a donation was pledged to a Muslim advocacy group, and additional diversity training at the paper was planned, the Tennessean reported. The ad was purchased by an Arkansas-based Future for America which focuses on end-of-world preaching, the paper added. What are the details?"The sales and design teams did not fully read the context of the ad content in its entirety and subsequently approved it," Kathy Jack-Romero, president of Gannett's local sales, told the Tennessean. While a sales executive flagged the ad for review, the sales manager "agreed to proceed with the ad without fully reviewing the content," Jack-Romero added to the paper. That manager was terminated Monday, the Tennessean reported. More from the paper:Money from the ad sale is being refunded to the Arkansas nonprofit Future for America. The group signaled its intention to buy billboard advertising and mail letters to thousands of Nashvillians this...
    The Tennessean newspaper is investigating an ad it published that said Islam was going to launch a nuclear attack on Nashville. Kevin Gentzel, the president of marketing solutions and chief revenue officer for Gannett, which owns The Tennessean, did damage control on social media not long after the ad appeared in the paper.  The ad which was purchased by the group Future For America also said President Donald Trump “is the final president of the USA.” “Two ads ran this week in the Tennessean that clearly violate our advertising standards,” Gentzel tweeted. “We strongly condemn the message and apologize to our readers. We are immediately investigating to determine how this could have happened.” The ad began with a claim that a nuclear weapon would be detonated in Nashville and an attack would hit certain targets of "Islam." “The advertisement that was placed within the Tennessean is not what we condone or stand for within our advertising department guidelines and procedures,” Ryan Kedzierski, vice president of sales for middle Tennessee, told The Tennessean. Kedzierski continued, “This advertisement should not have been published within The Tennessean and...
    A significant newspaper in Nashville, Tennessee, The Tennessean, said it is investigating a horrifying, Islamaphobic paid ad that predicts a terrorist attack in Nashville on July 18, 2020, as reported by Time. The editor of the paper said the ad, which ran on Sunday, “should have never been published.” The ad, which is from the fringe group Future For America, takes up an entire page. Notably, however, there’s actually another ad that’s similar; the first one is from Wednesday, and said it aimed to warn residents of the prophecy so they may “make a decision intelligently." However, the first ad doesn’t explicitly mention Islam. The ad from Sunday went viral online as people were understandably confused and disgusted by it. The ad claims that in the interests of “Islam,” a nuclear device will detonate in Nashville. Pope Francis, as well as Donald Trump, are both in photos included in the ad. The ad claims that Trump “typified many biblical leaders” and refers to him as the “final President of the USA.” The ad claims it is based on “Bible prophecy.”  The ad reads in part: “Islam is...
    The Tennessean apologized for running an insane, full-page anti-Muslim ad from a Christian group that baselessly claimed “Islam is going to detonate a nuclear device in Nashville, Tennessee.” The paper announced Sunday it will conduct an investigation into how the ad made print. This morning, the Nashville @Tennessean — the largest newspaper in the state — published a full-page ad from a far-right client warning “Islam is going to detonate a nuclear device in Nashville, Tennessee.” It’s accompanied by photos of Donald Trump and Pope Francis. pic.twitter.com/9vvUbteSIh — Alex Martin Smith (@asmiff) June 21, 2020 The ad, printed in the Sunday edition of The Tennessean, claimed Muslims will “strike the US again” on July 18, 2020, information allegedly gleaned from biblical prophets. It featured an illustration of President Donald Trump and Pope Francis with an American flag behind them. The group also called Trump “the final president of the USA.” After the ad went viral online, Tennessean writers and editors spoke out about the paper’s decision to run it. Karen Grigsby, who has worked at the paper for 22...
    The Tennessean is investigating how a full-page ad from a fringe religious group with a "Bible prophecy" made it into Sunday's print edition. The ad, attributed to the Ministry of Future for America, claimed "Islam" will "detonate a nuclear device" next month in Nashville and send the world into World War III. The Tennessean published a statement that said the ad violated "long-established standards" and was "immediately ordered to be pulled from future editions by sales executives." The outlet said a similar ad that also contained an "end-times prophesy" but did not mention Islam was published in the newspaper on June 17. Kevin Gentzel, president of marketing solutions and the chief revenue officer for Gannett, the parent company of the Tennessean, condemned the advertisement in a tweet on Sunday. “Two ads ran this week in the Tennessean that clearly violate our advertising standards,” Gentzel wrote. “We strongly condemn the message and apologize to our readers. We are immediately investigating to determine how this could have happened.” The Tennessean post about the ads said that the newspaper's advertising standards "clearly forbid...
    The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville is investigating how it came to print a full-page advertisement Sunday by a biblical prophecy group that claimed 'Islam' is set to detonate a nuclear bomb in the city. The ad, which featured pictures of Donald Trump, Pope Francis, and burning US flags, was credited to the Ministry of Future of America - a group that claims its mission is to 'proclaim the final warning message' from the Bible. Titled 'Dear Citizen of Nashville', the lengthy 'prophecy' features several paragraphs of anti-Muslim rhetoric claiming that the Bible predicts Islam’s role is to bring 'all men on planet earth together to combat them.' It also stated that Trump would be the 'last president of the US' and warned there would be 'another civil war', while also discussing Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Democratic Party and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings.   The paid advertisement that appeared in Sunday's editions of The Tennessean from the group Future For America claims Donald Trump 'is the final president of the USA' and features a photo...
    A Tennessee newspaper is investigating how a “horrific” full-page, paid advertisement from a religious group that predicts a nuclear terror attack in Nashville next month ended up being published on Sunday.

    A Tennessee newspaper is investigating how a “horrific” full-page, paid commercial from a spiritual group that predicts a nuclear terror assault in Nashville subsequent month ended up being revealed on Sunday. Within the advert that appeared in The Tennessean, a Gannett-owned newspaper in Nashville, the group Future For America claims President Trump “is the ultimate president of the USA.” It begins by claiming {that a} nuclear gadget can be detonated within the metropolis and that the assault can be carried out by unspecific pursuits of “Islam.” Future For America additionally ran an advert in Wednesday’s editions of the paper stating its intention to warn Nashville residents in regards to the cataclysmic occasion “in order that they can decide intelligently.” In a non-bylined article Sunday, The Tennessean described the non secular group as “fringe,” saying its advert was instantly pulled and that an investigation has been launched. “Two adverts ran this week within the Tennessean that clearly violate our promoting requirements,” Kevin Gentzel, president of selling options and chief income officer for Gannett, mentioned in a tweet. “We strongly condemn...

Kid Rock’s Big Honky Tonk and Steakhouse was issued a five-day suspension by the Metropolitan Beer Permit Board after the downtown establishment was caught serving customers at its bar on Saturday night, The Tennessean reported.
