Five years after the Great Recession rocked the nation and nearly destroyed auto manufacturing in Tennessee, the Midstate’s industry is booming again.

17. Editorial: Putting the Work Into Artwork -

Before there was social media, the Internet or even FedEx, there was the commerce of art and creativity in Memphis.

What our cover story calls “art work” – emphasis on two words – has a long and perhaps misunderstood lineage in Memphis.

18. Art Work -

It’s easy to appreciate the art in painter Jared Small’s depictions of dilapidated shacks, shotgun-style homes and other aging structures that appear to be fading away right there on his canvas, images that suggest the creaks of doors and the groans of floorboards to accompany the lonely scenes.

19. Memphis Football Among Nation’s Most Improved -

20. Who Are You? -

KNOWN BUT NAMELESS. Who the hell are you? I’m not mad at you, I’m mad because I don’t know who you are and I should. No clue. Known you since the earth was cooling and I couldn’t come up with your name under Dick Cheney’s enhanced interrogation, not if I had to listen to Barry Manilow sing or Rush Limbaugh talk until I came up with it. You look so familiar we might be brothers … but I know my brothers. Their names are … give me a sec. I don’t have any sisters. I think.

31. Fear of Trying -

The most complicated move in ballroom dancing is often the step that gets you through the dance studio’s front door.

Television shows like, “Dancing with the Stars’’ and “So You Think You Can Dance’’ are wildly popular and have contributed to a renewed interest in the glamourous art (skill? sport?) of ballroom dancing, but those high-energy, competitive programs or a movie like “Dirty Dancing’’ can also intimidate people and keep them glued to the couch.

32. The Production Company Behind Durham’s Ads -

Bart Durham is perhaps the best-known attorney among those who watch late-night TV when the commercial rates are lower.

And while the commercials may seem silly to some people, they dead-on connect with those people in Nashville or Middle Tennessee who’ve never had a lawyer and perhaps are a little timid to approach a “respectable” attorney.

33. Commercial Success -

If, as the saying goes, everyone gets 15 minutes of fame, Bart Durham’s has come in 15- and 30-second spurts – the length of the commercials that depict him as a lawyer everyman, ever-ready to tilt at windmills for the sake of justice for the working class.

37. Top 10 2015 Marketing Trends That Matter -

2015 marketing trend reports are a dime a dozen this time of year, though in reality many focus on fads, which by definition, have fleeting popularity. Fads are for gamblers.

As such, the RedRover Sales & Marketing team is predicting these 10 marketing trends worthy of consideration in your 2015 marketing strategy.

43. ‘Hidden’ Fees and Charges Add Up -

Ray’s take: It’s the beginning of a new year, a time for reflection and taking stock. New Year’s resolutions typically are significant changes. Big changes are difficult. I suggest considering a series of little ones. Your odds are better and the little fees and charges in our lives can add up and throw our budgets and plans off track.

44. 20 Years Later, Titans Again at Rock Bottom -

49. End of The Year To-Do List -

Ray’s Take In an ideal world, we would always stay on top of all of the intricacies of our financial lives. The real world seems to work a little differently.

54. Immigrants Find Room to Grow in Nashville's Public Gardens -

With the growing season wrapped up for winter and the temperature hovering at 45 degrees on a recent Sunday, the community garden off Wedgewood Avenue looked to be draped in a brown afghan with just a few patches of green peeking through.

Cars are a lot different, and the business of an auto body shop is too, since Delmus “Blackie” Moore opened a body shop on Fourth Street in Downtown Memphis in 1951.

The business of body work is much faster, with less time for the custom work that once was much of Blackie Moore’s stock in trade.

68. Community Hospitals Becoming Endangered Species -

71. Beach-Bound -

94. Holden’s Hat -
