Collaboration the key for Trexler
Theater major finds ‘perfect fit’ in Erickson Team

As Ingram Trexler grew up within earshot of waves lapping the Gulf Coast in Southern Mississippi, she dreamed of someday basking in the lights of Broadway.

Here, she looks back on her second Dare to Dance appearance and its impact on her and the community.

Backstreet restaurants like Marsha’s worth the search

Chattanooga has its share of foodie havens – restaurants with inventive cuisine crafted by award-winning chefs who use locally grown ingredients and charge more for an appetizer than my dad spent on the whole family at the Ponderosa when I was a kid.

Wanna help the planet? Ditch that thirsty lawn
