Yeah, just wait till next year
Entomologists savor chance to study cicadas, warn the 2025 invasion will be even bigger

Very soon, through big swathes of the Volunteer State, the cicadas are gonna remind you of Roy Kent.

The veteran, albeit fictional, British footballer from “Ted Lasso” had a chant directed at him throughout his career: “he’s here, he’s there, he’s every-(effin’)-where…”

Two broods emerging, but only one in Tennessee

The Central U.S. is swimming in cicadas this summer. The 13-year Brood XIX is the flavor of periodic cicada emerging in Tennessee over the next few weeks.

Brood XIII (no, not Taylor’s version) is a 17-year species, and will also emerge in 2024, but the broods will only overlap in a very small section of Central Illinois.

Father’s faith guides career decision
But Davenport needed to convince herself before leap

Shirley Davenport was 28 when her father fell on hard times and began to tumble toward foreclosure in 1998.

A stubborn case of post-traumatic stress disorder held John Emmanuel Foy, Sr., a Vietnam veteran, in an unyielding grip. Unwilling to let the streets claim him, Davenport moved him into her home. He then sold his house and used the funds that remained after he’d paid off his mortgage to settle into a new dwelling.

Pre-summer checklist for home chores

As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and with the arrival of May, it’s the perfect time to ensure your home is prepped and primed to welcome the warmer months ahead.

Some tips for selecting a professional remodeler

When planning a home remodel, the decision to hire a professional remodeler is not just about achieving satisfactory results, it’s also about ensuring peace of mind and safeguarding your investment.

Professional remodelers bring a wealth of expertise, craftsmanship and industry knowledge to the table. Beyond mere execution, they possess a keen eye for design, a knack for problem-solving, and the ability to navigate complex logistical challenges inherent in remodeling projects.

Saturday’s Tour de Jour features six homes

Glossy magazines and decked-out showrooms are great sources of inspiration when remodeling a home or daydreaming about a renovation.

Rogers column: Mental evals for legislators? How did that not pass?

Just as one invading species – state legislators – has departed Nashville, we’re steeling ourselves for the imminent arrival of another: Brood XIX cicadas. Of the two, which is more irksome?

In fairness to the bugs, I probably shouldn’t characterize them as invaders. Unlike most of the lawmakers who temporarily occupy Nashville annually, they’re homegrown natives. Brood XIX, this year’s star attraction, is simply emerging after 13 years of underground eating and development to go about their adult business.

Financial Focus: Financial freedom: A gift to your family
