Nashville woman finds possums keep her up at night

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Critters are part of the countryside when you live in Tennessee, and for one west Nashville woman with a camera, it’s not a bad thing.

Even if the animal is one most of us would like to scare away.

Robin Cohn is surrounded by her dogs, but it’s the possum people keep talking about.

The ugly, tick-eating, night-stalking possum has a friend.

“I do consider them cute,” said Cohn.

She runs the west Nashville shop Come, Sit and Stay, commands for her dogs Kai and Bodi. In her world, pets clearly come first.

“It’s really safe to say I’m an animal lover,” said Cohn.

Safe to say she’s a possum lover too, ever since they started coming to her back porch.

Long past her bedtime, they come every night...

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Downtown Nashville was swamped with tourists and fans Thursday with the NFL Draft underway.

Some fans were taking part in the event without ever having to leave their home address.

"That’s Amber!" said Pat Eiting, noticing the dog waiting next to his back porch. "Amber! Here you go!"

He dropped a dog biscuit over the railing. Amber gobbled it up.

Eiting’s apartment is well-known among the neighborhood dogs.

"The stop, sit down, look up. They’re waiting for a treat," he laughed.

Eiting’s place is also known for something else, a pretty great back porch apartment view.

From his home, he can see Nissan Stadium, Broadway and Ascen...

Backers of a proposed affordable housing bond have shelved their plans for the year, opting instead to participate in a study to look at the state’s alternatives for addressing Vermont’s housing shortage.

Sen. Michael Sirotkin, D-Chittenden, decided to stop pressing for the bond after he heard recent testimony from opponents such as State Treasurer Beth Pearce. Pearce said last month that after a recent state bond rating downgrade, it would not be the right time to take on major debt for housing.

“The treasurer’s opinion is important,” Sirotkin said Thursday...

The Nashville Symphony takes it show on the road once in awhile, mostly to perform for crowds that can’t easily make it to the Schermerhorn.

Seeing the Nashville Symphony is a spectacle, but hearing them is really what matters.

Monday, students at the Tennessee School for the Blind got an afternoon lunch of Beethoven and Mozart.

Music has always been welcome at the school, mostly when the students play it themselves.

But today, they were the audience.

Symphony violinist Louise Morrison didn’t know what the reaction would be.

"I hope to see them dancing, moving around, anything they want to do, we appreciate it."

Her hope happened after she played the first chord.

NASHVILLE, Tn. – Penn FC fell 3-1 to Nashville SC after the home side scored a goal late in the second half that effectively ended Rush Soccer’s First Team’s comeback attempt.

Down 2-0 in the 75th minute, Penn FC’s second-half substitutions ignited a potential comeback. Calvin Rezende — who substituted into the game in the 61st minute — and Marco Franco, set up a give-and-go play on the right wing. Rezende ran past his defender to receive the ball from Franco at the top of the box. Rezende fired a driving shot on the ground that goalkeeper Matt Pickens saved but could not corral, and the ball rolled out of play for a Penn FC corner.

On the subsequent corner kick, Ken Tribbett headed a point-blank shot from Pedro Galvao’s service...
