Stophel Distinguished Students from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) at the firm’s annual Stophel Scholars reception on Thursday, Feb. 12.

49th Tri-State Home Show returns March 13-15

Each year, the Homebuilders Association of Greater Chattanooga has worked to make its Tri-State Home Show bigger than ever. This year, however, the association is actually going for smaller.

For the first time, tiny houses will be featured at the show, including one by Tiny by Design, a Tennessee-based company led by Dale Geist. He says his capstone product, the DS 400, is unlike any other tiny home.


Miller & Martin attorneys named BTI Client Service All-Stars 2015

Two Miller & Martin attorneys are among the 354 attorneys named 2015 BTI Client Service All-Stars. Shelby R. Grubbs was recognized for his civil litigation and dispute resolution practice, and W.

Council accepting applications for upcoming vacancy in Hamilton County

Judge Rebecca J. Stern of the 11th Judicial District has informed Gov. Bill Haslam that she will retire effective June 1. The Governor’s Council for Judicial Appointments is now accepting applications for the upcoming Criminal Court Judge vacancy in Hamilton County.


Federal Bar installs new officers, looks to the year ahead

If the members of the Chattanooga Chapter of the Federal Bar took one thing away from their annual lunch meeting at the Chattanooga Convention Center on Wednesday, Feb. 11, it was a renewed commitment to the mission of the organization: to serve the practitioners in the Eastern District of Tennessee, the federal judiciary, and the public.


Mountain Girls making a difference

As natives of Chattanooga, The Mountain Girls believe in making a difference in the local community.

As such, they are donating a portion of their Realtor fees to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer if one mentions being referred by the Foundation. Katherine Smith said, “We’re proud to be sponsors of the Austin Hatcher Foundation.” The feeling is mutual, as Amy Jo Osborn, co-founder and president of the Austin Hatcher Foundation, said, “Their professionalism and integrity make them not only a successful real estate team but also a perfect partner for the Foundation.”


The politics of real estate
Realtor Association President's Message

This past week, several of our Georgia Realtors participated in the state association’s legislative conference, which included spending time meeting with Georgia legislators. Later this month, Tennessee Realtors will have similar meetings with our Tennessee legislators. And in May, Realtors from our local Association will join more than 8,000 Realtors in Washington, D.C. to meet with legislators, congressional, and regulatory staff. Many have asked me why we do this and what it has to do with real estate. Everything.


Women may face extra challenges in seeking financial security
Financial Focus

On March 8, we observe International Women’s Day. On this occasion, thousands of events across the world will honor the cultural, political and social achievements of women. Of course, in many countries, women still face significant economic challenges. And even here in the United States, women encounter more obstacles than men in the pursuit of financial security, particularly in seeking a comfortable retirement lifestyle. So if you are a woman — regardless of your marital status — you will need to be aware of these challenges and take steps to overcome them. 


Curtain drawn on Bravermans’ drama
I Swear

If there’s one adjective that does not fit “Parenthood,” NBC’s six-season series that shuttered its doors in January, it’s symmetrical. Great show! I hate to see it go. But it was out of balance. Always! And delightfully so!


February: The calendar’s armpit
Under Analysis

It’s February, which is possibly the worst month of the year. No one likes February. The groundhog doesn’t even like February. I suspect the reason it’s the shortest month of the year is because the people who made the calendar knew there was no way humans could take a full 31 days of this horrid month. (And for that I’m thankful.)


Insure Tennessee fails to win sound bite test
View from the Hill

Fresh off a resounding November re-election victory, Gov. Bill Haslam ran smack dab into the reality of Tennessee politics: The Republican Party abhors anything connected to President Barack Obama.

It’s a mindset he could face again this spring.


‘The Kingsman’ first great flick of 2015
The Critic's Corner

I love old spy movies, the kind in which the villain explains his evil plan to the hero and then devises a convoluted means of death for his nemesis, only his adversary pulls off an equally elaborate escape plan.

“The Kingsman: The Secret Service,” however, is not that kind of spy movie. But, God help me, I love it, too.


Fajita Nachos are just right!
Kay's Cooking Corner

Fajitas and nachos. These are two of my favorite Mexican dishes, so why not combine them? The recipe below is great at doing just that, and it’s a wonderful dish I’m sure you’ll love. Not only that, it’s a great party dish. Set up a nacho bar, and let guests personalize their nachos. Have fun with this one!


Chattanooga Airport announces parking lot expansion

Chattanooga Airport officials this week announced plans to expand customer parking at the commercial terminal, starting with the demolition of an aging hangar.

“We’ve seen a steady increase in customers parking in our lots over the last few years, and have reached the point where an expansion is critical,” said Terry Hart, airport president. “We’ve reviewed all options for parking expansion, and removing Hangar 3 makes the most sense, as it’s located adjacent to the existing intermediate parking lot and requires a tremendous amount of maintenance in its present condition.”


Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga performing Cram play

Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga will be performing “Dusty and the Big Bad World” by Cusi Cram at the theater inside Eastgate Town Center, located at 5600 Brainerd Road, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. through March 8.


Are We There Yet?

I found a handwritten note recently you might find amusing. It was written to my mom, Jean, and dated May 28, 2010.

You will recognize the name of the writer of those few slightly shaky, but very legible paragraphs. He was 87 when he sat down to compose, clearly still possessing a mind of wit and charm, and a heart that cared. I don’t believe he would have minded me sharing.


Blizzard 2015
View from the Cheap Seats

About two months ago, I began predicting that Little Rock was not going to get any snow or ice this year. Specifically, I said there would be no missed work due to inclement weather. If you’ve been paying attention to the national weather, you’re fully aware that many parts of the country have been hard hit by winter weather. That’s especially true in the Northeast. Even though there’s been a lot of winter weather to go around, Central Arkansas had none until last week. My prediction of no winter weather affecting work failed when I was forced to stay home on President’s Day.


You rang?
Read All About It

A few years ago, there was a big push to get everyone on the National Do Not Call Registry for your home telephone. After wives, senior citizens, and anybody else who just wasn’t looking for a phone call to come to their house because they were lonely had signed up, the evening local call volume decreased. It was a pleasant time for those of us who really didn’t care to buy light bulbs by the case or to cruise the ocean with soap opera stars. That time of life was good, and the phone receivers of America laid dormant for the betterment of man and womankind.


Dryer sponges
Do It Yourself

I am a sucker for the scent of freshly cleaned clothes. Every part of me loves to pull our clothes out of the dryer and smell the Sun Blossom scent that Downy carries. It is the yellow bottle and it seems as if they bottled the sunshine and spring flowers!


The Pool Place changes name to The Great Backyard Place

After over 30 years operating as The Pool Place, the large warehouse on Perimeter Drive donned a new name starting Feb. 18.

Now operating as The Great Backyard Place, this widely-known business will continue to offer the same pool, spa, and furniture products, but with a wider offering of backyard living products.


Brainbuster - Make Your Brain Tingle

Trains, planes and automobiles. Or, in this case, just trains. My grandson, Landon, loves trains. Really, he loves anything with wheels and an engine. He’s the one that gave me the inspiration for this puzzle.


What'd They Say?

Fill in the blanks in the quote using the following words:

 

count, years, it’s, not, life, your,

 years, in, it’s, life, end
