A fix for what kills electronics
Chattanooga’s iFixit gives users what they need to repair devices

Kyle Wiens was a college freshman with an iBook G3 and a half-formed dream of launching a robotics company when the power plug on his laptop loosened and changed his life.

Wiens had spent every penny he’d earned working minimum wage during high school to buy his laptop, so paying someone to repair it wasn’t an option. Not that he would’ve handed it over anyway; he liked solving his own problems, and as a student at California Polytechnic State University, this setback was right up his tech-strewn alley.

Sanko finds career he envisioned at Baker Donelson

When attorney Clinton Sanko selected Baker Donelson as his professional home after moving from Pittsburgh to Chattanooga in 2004, he based his decision on his belief in the firm’s ability to nurture the kind of practice he wanted to develop, he says.

Brown joins Miller & Martin as corporate associate

Brown finds freedom, success in real estate

Malls might not be the kind of places where people typically have epiphanies, but Valerie Brown was sitting in one in Hamilton County 25 years ago when she saw something that changed her life.

Beginning at age 15 with a job at a Lerner Shops in Eastgate Town Center, Brown had been working nonstop for around 25 years when she was placed on medical leave and given a temporary reprieve from the grind. Given that it was the middle of the week, she’d expected the mall to be nearly empty, but she found it to be buzzing with people leisurely browsing the shops and milling about as though they didn’t have a care in life.

January 2024 market report

In the shifting sands of the U.S. housing market, the latest figures sketch a tale of cautious optimism. The National Association of Realtors’ January market report breaks down the contrast between the decline in existing home sales and the significant increase in pending sales and what that might mean for the housing market’s health and future trends.

Five steps to take before your actual move-in date

Moving into a new home can be both exhilarating and overwhelming. Before the boxes are unpacked and the furniture is arranged, there are several essential tasks to tackle to ensure a smooth transition into your new space. Here are five important things buyers often overlook when moving into a new home.

River City: Chen’s vast menu doesn’t seem to have a bad choice

“I love Chen’s,” my sister declared in a Marco Polo video after I’d sent her a picture of the menu of the newly opened Chattanooga restaurant, whose full name is “Chen’s Chinese Cuisine & Sushi.”

I was hoping I’d at least enjoy it as a lunch option, as it’s close to home. I’d been eyeing the sign since the eatery opened on Gunbarrel Road near Hobby Lobby, and despite thinking the founders tacked on the “& Sushi” as an afterthought, I was feeling optimistic.

Newsmakers: DAR recognizes Sharpe

The Judge David Campbell Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution presented physical therapist Lindsey Sharpe with the Community Service Award at its Feb. 14 meeting.

Through her work with at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger children, Sharpe saw a need for children with disabilities to experience life without limitations and co-founded Camp Horizon with her late husband, Steven Sharpe, in 2005.

Briefs: New stop signs now in place at Clifton Hills

The Chattanooga Department of Public Works has placed a four-way stop at East 32nd Street and Clio Avenue in response to citizen concerns about public safety at the intersection. Last month, community members brought long-standing concerns to Mayor Tim Kelly’s attention about car accidents at the intersection, which is located near Clifton Hills Elementary School.

Events: Siskin Hospital Possibilities luncheon

March 13, Chattanooga Convention Center

Financial Focus: How will higher rates affect you?

As you know, interest rates have risen considerably over the past couple of years.

But what does this mean to you, as a consumer and as an investor?

From a consumer’s standpoint, it’s not hard to see the effects of higher interest rates. If you want to take out a mortgage or refinance an existing one, you’ll find that it’s considerably more costly, in terms of the interest you’ll pay, than it was a few years ago.

Millennial Money: It might be time to change your investment strategy

The passage of time feels like it creeps, then pounces: Suddenly, party conversation focuses on real estate, how we’re going to bed earlier and our realization that we have no idea what type of jeans to wear.

For years, millennials have been the butt of financial jokes: “They spend all their money on lattes and avocado toast!” and “Why don’t they get a minimum wage job to pay for college like I did?” But the clichés got old quickly.

Personal Finance: Managing retirement spending’s U-shaped curve

Financial planners talk about three phases in retirement: the go-go years, the slow-go years and the no-go years. Expenses tend to be highest at the beginning and end of retirement – creating a U-shape. But many people think of retirement spending as a constant variable.

Decision looming for Preds on moving Saros

With the NHL’s March 8 trade deadline closing fast, Predators general manager Barry Trotz’s phone will be busy with other teams looking to improve their own teams as they make the charge for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

 Trotz is in an interesting position in his first season as a GM. The Predators have largely overachieved as compared to what most expected of this club this season.

Behind the Wheel: Comparing Chevrolet Colorado, Toyota Tacoma
