A long-awaited ride in the woods
Walden’s Ridge Park opens to bouldering, biking, hiking on Signal Mountain

In 2004, the late Chattanooga business and civic leader John “Jack” McDonald donated a 119-acre sprawl on the side of Signal Mountain to the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy. McDonald wanted to always be able to look at the mountain and see forest, says Tim Laramore, director of the conservancy.

Harvey finds perfect pro bono niche with adoptions

Throughout his 30-year career with Miller & Martin, attorney Brad Harvey has traveled from Chattanooga to destinations throughout the country to represent clients in high stakes labor and employment matters.

Harvey, 54, graces New York City with his presence about once a month as part of his work for Coca-Cola, for example, and he’s handled class actions as far away as California. These trips to distant locales made his many jaunts to Cincinnati to contribute to a case seem like idle walks in a park.

No haunted houses in Roberts’ listing
But he does have a side job sure to scare you away

Although moonlighting as a chainsaw-wielding maniac ranks low on the list of therapeutic outlets for Realtors, Chris Roberts has always been a little left of center, he laughs.

Or rather, cackles. Either way, it’s loud and cheerful, as though Roberts is inviting those within hearing range to join him. The same cannot be said for the sounds that envelop him as he arrives at his nighttime gig.

Vols score from downtown with Market Square Madness

After COVID led to the cancellation of the annual basketball tipoff event for fans at the University of Tennessee, athletic officials started brainstorming about hosting something more creative.

Thinking outside the box led to them going outside altogether.

Financial Focus: What should you ask a financial advisor?

Managing your finances and investing for your future are important tasks — and they can be challenging. But you don’t have to go it alone. Many people benefit from working with a financial advisor, someone who knows their needs and goals and makes appropriate recommendations. If you’re considering getting some help, you’ll want to ensure a particular financial advisor is right for you, so it’s a good idea to ask questions.

Don’t be surprised when it’s time for assisted living

If you or a loved one can no longer live safely at home, assisted living might be the answer. Residents typically live in their own rooms or apartments and get housekeeping services, meals and help with personal care.

But facilities can vary enormously, and people’s expectations about assisted living often clash with reality, elder care experts say. Here are some important things to know.

Westbrook-Ikhine goes from undrafted to consistent option

In his four years with the Titans, he has become a symbol of the team’s lack of dynamic production at wide receiver to many in the team’s fan base.

But the truth is, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine has turned into a valuable success story on several different levels in his now three-plus seasons in Tennessee.

Afterthoughts help make up for recent draft deficiencies

Some of it is probably a result of poor drafts in recent years. Some of it seems to be that Mike Vrabel doesn’t mind a good underdog story.

Whatever the reason, the Titans have 13 players (including two currently on injured reserve) in various roles from starters to key backups who were undrafted, signed and developed into role players and contributors.

Titans at Colts: What to watch

The Titans will try to get their first road win of the season and move into first place in the AFC South in the process, if they can defeat the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. Let’s look at the keys to victory.

First down

Keep the balance. The Titans had a nice balance between the passing game and running game against the Bengals. Derrick Henry had 122 yards rushing, his best game of the season. Ryan Tannehill had 240 yards on 18 completions of 25 passes. If the offense can function like that and avoid third-and-long situations, it can succeed in Indy.

Gas price anxiety? Here are the Top 5 2023 hybrids

Are high gas prices burning a hole in your wallet? Then maybe it’s a good time to consider a hybrid vehicle.

Hybrids gain improved fuel efficiency thanks to specialized powertrains that combine a gas engine with at least one electric motor that’s powered by a battery pack that does not need to be plugged in. In many cases, the price difference between hybrid and non-hybrid models is small enough that the hybrid will pay for itself or save you money after just a few years of ownership.
