Haslam cancels lone public appearance this week

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Republican Gov. Bill Haslam has canceled his lone public event this week pending the arrival of his fourth grandchild.

Spokesman David Smith said Monday that this will be the Haslams' third grandchild born this year.

Haslam had been scheduled to speak Tuesday to the Southland Conference, an event billing itself as focusing on "Technology, Entrepreneurship and Southern Culture."

Other scheduled speakers at the event are former Vice President Al Gore, PayPal President David Marcus and hotel Tonight CEO Sam Shank. A panel of entrepreneurs will judge the best 10 teams to apply in a startup competition, with each investing $10,000 of their own money.

The event also features local food, whiskey and music.
