Envision a baseball board game with dice and a spinner in which players try to go from Little League to pitching and winning Game 7 of the World Series.

4. Supreme Court: Religious Rights Trump Birth Control Rule -

8. Salon Owner Loves Neighborhood Feel of Cooper-Young -

If what they say is true about doing what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life, then native New Yorker Felicia Scarpati-Lomax hasn’t worked in decades.

She owns a nail salon in Cooper-Young that she opened here after relocating to Memphis from the Big Apple and falling in love with both the city and with Cooper-Young. She’s been doing nails since she was a kid – she’s always loved the creative expression associated with it – and she’s done it off and on in some formal capacity for about 10 years.

NEW YORK (AP) – If you hope to get a raise that finally feels like one, it helps to work in the right industry.

Historically, at this stage in the economy's recovery, pay would be rising in most sectors. But five years after the Great Recession officially ended, raises remain sharply uneven across industries and, as a whole, have barely kept up with prices. Overall pay has been rising about 2 percent a year, roughly equal to inflation.

MEMPHIS (AP) – With four PGA Tour titles on his resume, Ben Crane knew what it would take to win again.

WASHINGTON (AP) – In a sweeping initiative to curb pollutants blamed for global warming, the Obama administration unveiled a plan Monday aimed at cutting carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by nearly a third by 2030.

19. US Bank Earnings Decline 7.7 Percent in First Quarter -

Through five playoff games, four overtimes and three wins in overtime, the Memphis Grizzlies have played fast and loose with opportunities.

The Conference Board said Monday that its index of leading indicators increased 0.8 percent in March after a 0.5 percent rise in February and modest 0.2 percent gain in January. It was the best showing since a 0.9 percent gain in November.

30. Go Deep or Go Home -

We meet companies and nonprofits who have been marketing to the same lists for years. Often, these lists and the assumptions about the people on their lists are more than a decade old. These aged lists may have been scrubbed, but that is simply for those who have fallen off the grid, one way or another. This point should be obvious to any reader of this column: there are major problems with this scenario.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – On the road in a tour bus this week, the U.S. transportation secretary is spreading some bad news: the government's Highway Trust Fund is nearly broke.

41. US Home Market: Few Buyers and Not Enough Sellers -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Entering the 2014 spring buying season, the U.S. housing market faces an unusual dilemma: Too few people are selling homes. Yet too few buyers can afford the homes that are for sale.

42. Caught in the Middle -

Even before the Affordable Care Act came along, Deborah Casey was living between a logistical rock and an economic hard place. Casey, a 61-year-old widow, draws a monthly Social Security check based on her husband’s earnings. She works part-time for Shelby County (no benefits), and to continue receiving the same amount in that Social Security check, she has to keep tabs on how much she makes. This is exactly how someone who wants to provide for herself winds up on a “fixed income.”

Now that we’ve all had a few days to digest the premature end to the Tigers’ season, let’s see what we can learn that might help going forward.

49. US Homebuilder Confidence Edges Higher in March -

U.S. homebuilders' confidence in the housing market edged higher this month, reflecting improved demand for new homes as the traditional spring home-selling season ramps up.

For every professional sports team, there are at least two running narratives: the one on the court or field of play and the one at the box office.

54. Hopes Up for Sunnier US Economy Once Winter Fades -

WASHINGTON (AP) – When the weather warms up, so, too, will the U.S. economy.

That, at least, is the prevailing view of economists, who shrugged off a government report Friday that the economy was weaker last quarter than first thought.

55. 30-Year Mortgage Rate Up to 4.37 Percent -

Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages rose for a third straight week as new data showed a surprisingly strong pace of new-home sales last month. Rates still remain near historically low levels.

58. The MED Adopts Umbrella Name -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. home prices fell for the second straight month in December as brutally cold weather, tight supply and higher costs slowed sales.

The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index declined 0.1 percent from November to December, matching the previous month's decline. The index is not adjusted for seasonal variations, so the dip partly reflects slower buying as winter weather set in.

60. Tigers Pledge Focus With Lesser Foes on Tap -

Absorb nothing. Or as players such as Tigers guard Chris Crawford like to say, don’t let it “soak.” Meaning win or lose, don’t dwell on it.

61. Few Eligible Patients Can Get Weight Loss Surgery -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Like 78 million other Americans, MaryJane Harrison is obese.

And like many critically overweight Americans, Harrison cannot afford to have weight loss surgery because her health insurance doesn't cover it.

62. Fears of Slowdown Sharpen Focus on US Jobs Report -

64. Grizzlies Making Key Strides -

Last Saturday, Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale was looking back at his team’s 88-87 loss at home to the Grizzlies the previous night.

65. Weekly Applications for US Jobless Aid Mostly Flat -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits ticked up 1,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 326,000, a level consistent with steady job gains.

The Labor Department says the four-week average, a less volatile measure, fell for the third straight week to 331,500. Both figures are close to pre-recession levels and suggest that companies are laying off few workers.

67. Time for Biz Housekeeping -

The new year is a time of growth planning, renewed focus and basic housekeeping. We encourage you to take this time to evaluate your business for pruning opportunities. Just like nature’s cycle, the old must die to make room for the new in the business realm as well.

72. The Year That Was -

2013 brought plenty of unique and out-of-the-ordinary moments, as well as the launch of new events, businesses and civic ventures that collectively made the Memphis experience richer.

Much of it was covered in these pages, including in recent days a U.S. Supreme Court justice eliciting chuckles from and sharing his constitutional philosophy with an audience of Memphis lawyers.

73. New Questions -

The winter break for students is usually when parents look for word of what changes are ahead in the next school year.

74. US Economy Expands at 4.1 Percent Rate -

75. NBA Notebook: December 20, 2013 -

The Grizzlies’ Nick Calathes Experiment, if you want to give it a name, continues. Brought in after playing four years in Europe to be Mike Conley’s backup at point guard, he has been playing more minutes in the wake of Conley’s bruised thigh.

76. Grizzlies Now the Team Getting Kicked Around -

It is no longer too early to determine the highlight of the Grizzlies 2013-2014 season.

81. Paragon Sets Record Profit in Third Quarter -

The good news keeps coming for Paragon National Bank.

Between July and September, the Memphis-based community bank completed the most profitable quarter in its nearly eight-year history.

83. Soulful Synergy -

What happened at the corner of McLemore Avenue and College Street in the 1960s is nothing short of extraordinary.

At the crossroads of segregated neighborhoods in South Memphis, two white business partners would open the doors wide to whites and blacks alike, who congregated to write and record songs that would set off a soul explosion heard around the world.

84. Grizz Bigs Taking Advantage of Opportunity -

Not so long ago, forward Ed Davis entering a Grizzlies game cued a barrage of negative tweets and even a few scattered boos.

Some were directed at Davis for what, at the time, had been a portfolio of poor play. Some were directed at Grizzlies management because, as the popular narrative went, they were desperate for Davis to play and play well because he was considered the biggest piece of the Rudy Gay trade.

85. RV Industry Shows More Signs of Recovery -

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – RV manufacturers expect to pass another milestone in their steady recovery from the recession that landed the industry in a deep ditch.

Led by sales growth for towable RVs and pricier stand-alone motor homes, recreational vehicle makers expect to ship more than 300,000 units to dealers' lots this year for the first time since the economic downturn battered the industry in 2008 and 2009.

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. wholesalers increased their stockpiles in September for the third straight month, an indication that they expect more demand from businesses and consumers.

Wholesale stockpiles rose a seasonally adjusted 0.4 percent, the Labor Department said Friday. That follows an increase of 0.8 percent in the previous month. August's increase was the highest in seven months.

93. Purchasing Power as a Mental Construct -

I frequently hear radio ads by mortgage companies touting the importance of “locking in low interest rates,” which will theoretically increase your “purchasing power.”

The idea is that with a monthly mortgage payment of $1,100 – assuming a 6 percent fixed rate for 30 years – you can afford a $184,000 home, whereas using a 5 percent interest rate and the same loan term enables, you can afford a $205,000 mortgage.

94. Wal-Mart Third-Quarter Profit Up, But Cuts Outlook -

NEW YORK (AP) – Wal-Mart shoppers – much like many Americans – still feel like they're in a recession.

In the uneven economic recovery, their bills are going up, but their wages are not. While the well-heeled crowd benefits from gains in the stock market, Wal-Mart shoppers are still struggling with a higher payroll tax. And shopping for bargains isn't a hobby, but a necessity.

95. US Trade Deficit Widens 8 Percent in September -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. trade deficit widened in September as imports increased to the highest level in 10 months while exports slipped. The wider gap suggests growth was somewhat slower over the summer than previously estimated.

“Alabama is a team that leads the nation in just about everything,” Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen said.

97. Looking for Last Season’s Grizz to Make Appearance … Now -
