16. Gasol An All-Star Starter; Conley, Z-Bo Just As Valuable -

Center Marc Gasol has broken through the glass ceiling that forever has hung above Memphis and the Grizzlies.

21. Sick Irony -

A SPECK OF CEREAL. Insure Tennessee reminds me of Lorne Greene, David Letterman and a can of Alpo.

You remember Lorne, don’t you? Dad on “Bonanza”? In an old commercial for Alpo, he made his ancient dog fetch a stick to get fed. As she struggled back with the stick in her gray jaws, Lorne suggested that her longevity was due to Alpo – dog food, he said, “without a speck of cereal.”

22. Money Management Principles -

Ray’s take: Most things in life involve a set of basic principles, and money management is no exception to the rule.

First, you should know and understand what you earn. You should not only know your gross salary and net pay amounts, but you should also understand your withholding and insurance benefit withdrawals. Without earnings, there would be no need for money management principles. Make the most of what you earn by following other principles.

Retired air traffic controller Sterling King moved to Knoxville when his brother needed him. Five years later, he has fallen in love with the area and everything it has to offer.

Moderate weather, without the bone-chilling Northern winters or the searing heat of Florida summers, is a big draw, along with its location in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, says King, 58, who migrated from Dayton, Ohio, to Raleigh, North Carolina, and then to Knoxville.

33. Roth Conversion, Should You Do It? -

38. According to Foyle -

My early New Year’s resolution is to be more like Christopher Foyle. Demeanor-wise and wisdom-wise. No, I won’t be wearing a vest.

“Foyle’s War” is a British detective series created by Anthony Horowitz. As World War II rages, Inspector Christopher Foyle (played by Michael Kitchen) investigates crimes from his headquarters in Hastings, England. He never raises his voice. He’s never puzzled by an inconsistency. Obvious lies from the devious don’t faze him one bit.

47. Grizzlies Playing With Dominating ‘Edge’ -

54. Financial Literacy Is a Must -

Ray's take: I occasionally am asked to teach a short financial literacy course in the Shelby County Schools system. I am amazed how many 11th and 12th graders already have credit cards.

55. Hill to Lead MIFA’s COOL Program -

Andrea Hill has been named manager of Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association’s COOL (College Offers Opportunities for Life) program, which provides higher education counseling, life skills training and mentorship opportunities to 11th- and 12th-graders from G.W.

THIS MORNING. THIS TOWN. This morning, I woke up in a challenged neighborhood. You know the challenges well.

The population is declining and aging – talking about the good old days, bemoaning the present, fearful of the future.

74. Once High-Flying Vince Carter in Different Role With Grizz -

At this stage of his NBA career, there are a lot of euphemisms for Vince Carter.

Veteran. Elder statesman. Old guy. Those were Carter’s own words when describing his exit in Dallas this summer, after owner Mark Cuban put a three-year, $46.1 million offer sheet in front of 25-year-old Chandler Parsons. The Benefactor indeed.

75. Central Centennial -

Central Station is 100 years old, an age that most train stations never reach. And if they do, they get there with some really harrowing years in mid-life.

80. Searching for Doctors -

So here’s the offer: lower salary – meaning it will take longer to pay down your student loan debt – less prestige, and perhaps even a questioning of your intelligence and skill.

In 2014, that’s what comes with the decision to become a primary care physician. Recently, a fourth-year medical student at the University of Pennsylvania, Mara Gordon, wrote an article for The Atlantic explaining her decision to become a primary care doctor.

81. Road to Better Mass Transit -

Picking a new transit chief is critical for a city in transition.

Next year, Nashville residents will elect a new mayor and turn over its large Metro Council.

89. Cardinals Finding Way Back to Playoffs -

Nancy Keen Palmer is worried about Lily and Holly.

91. Push for Broader Minority Business Participation Grows -
