2. Planning Your Second Act -

Ray’s Take When surveyed, many baby boomers say they plan to do some kind of work in retirement. The reality is that we are living longer, healthier lives than our parents and grandparents. When we reach the traditional retirement age, we probably have a lot of years of living (and spending) left. What to do with those years is changing with the retirement of the boomer generation.

3. Crazy About Triathlons Or Just Crazy? -

Nikki Balderson is a 38-year-old wife and mother of three young children – ages 2, 5 and 7. So if you want to make her fit into a tidy little demographic profile, you can do that. From afar.

12. Grinding Recovery -

Michael Drury is watching the current U.S. presidential season with a combination of professional detachment and an air of resignation.

Detachment, because part of his job as chief economist at Memphis-based McVean Trading & Investments is to keep abreast of what makes economies around the world tick. Part of that, of course, means at least some degree of focus on the man – or, possibly a few months from now, the woman – who sits astride the dominant global economy.

13. Comcast Buying Dreamworks Animation for About $3.55B -

NEW YORK (AP) – Comcast is buying DreamWorks Animation, the film company behind the "Shrek," ''Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda" franchises, for approximately $3.55 billion, strengthening its presence in the important and growing business of children's entertainment.

16. Re-Evaluate Your Cash Strategy -

Ray’s take: When it comes to a cash reserve, the standard advice is three to six months of expenses. Do you think that’s enough? It might not be.

Emergency funds are no longer one-size-fits-all.

17. Roster Remix? Grizzlies May Finally Shake Things Up -

21. Memphis’ Shrinking Population Cause for Concern -

Even as Memphis has grown larger through annexing surrounding communities, its population has steadily dwindled due to outmigration to the surrounding suburbs. Inner-city struggles will become more pronounced if this region’s wealthiest tax base continues that outward pattern, national experts say.

23. Shadyac Takes Over Soulsville Project With ‘Different Type of Model’ -

Tom Shadyac wants to pump $10 million into the heart of Soulsville. That’s the initial ask for his community center concept, One Family Memphis.

24. Elkington Green Takes Infill Approach in Local Housing Market -

For the first seven years of her life, Olliette Murry-Drobot grew up in a home where her father physically abused her mother. It’s a harrowing experience she says she still grapples with.

“Growing up, my sense of the world was that it was a very scary place,” she remembers. “I saw that other kids had a sense of safety, but I was always looking over my shoulder.”

28. Memphis Gets Proven Commodity in Tubby Smith -

It started immediately, before the hiring was even official. The audible sighs on sports talk radio, the Twitter whining, and the figurative eye-rolling.

Tubby Smith? Really? That old guy?

If they didn’t call him “old” outright, they inferred it in every way imaginable.

29. Omni Charter School Buys Permanent Home -

30. Legislators Playing Expensive Game With LGBT Issues -

The silly season is in full swing on Capitol Hill, but the “bathroom bill” and any jokes surrounding it are no laughing matter anymore. It’s getting downright expensive.

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery said this week the bill dealing with transgender student use of restrooms could cost the state more than $1.2 billion in federal funds for K-12 and higher education.

Hello frozen dinners and restaurant take out. Fast, yes, but not exactly healthy.

36. Events -

37. Student Loans: The Next Subprime Disaster? -

Ray’s Take: If you Google the words “student loan crisis,” millions of hits should convince you that this is a very hot topic.

According to the most recent Department of Education report released in September 2015, the federal loan default rate stands at 11.8 percent for borrowers who were required to start making payments during the 12 months prior to October 2012. While this is slightly lower than the previous report, it’s still not good. And the rate doesn't include borrowers who have been able to defer payments. Additionally, the most recent graduates will face the highest costs and will be emerging into what continues to be a very poor job market. We have every reason to believe that defaults are not only understated, but they will increase.

38. Career Fairs Aren’t Just For Kids -

Yesterday, I found myself saying something I often say this time of year: “One of my all-time favorite things is to go to a job fair!” The response I received was not unexpected. The job seeker hadn’t even thought of attending a job fair since college. They seem so juvenile on some level.

42. Le Bonheur, UTHSC Launch Pediatric DNA Repository -

Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital is a few months into a major project that puts it in the company of only a handful of children’s hospitals nationwide.

43. Financial Advice is Not a Luxury -

Ray’s Take: There’s an old saying that if you don't know where you're going, it's difficult to get there. That is never truer than with your financial goals.

Financial goals give you something to strive for and help you course correct along the path. They also help you focus on the purpose of your efforts. The accumulation of money will do very little for your happiness unless you have a carefully constructed and regularly reviewed plan for what you’re going to do with it.

44. Last Word: The Curtain Falls in Nashville, Political Cuneiform and Ramsey Talks -

And in less than a half hour Wednesday, the de-annexation drama that should qualify as the political equivalent of a Netflix binge-watchable television series made just for Memphis was done.

45. Audit Questions DHS Children's Food Program Spending -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – An audit of the state Department of Human Services by the Comptroller has called into question management and spending in the children's food program.

Most of the spending questioned in Tuesday's audit involved an $80 million food program intended to provide meals to kids who lack access to nutritious food in Tennessee, according to media outlet reports. It called into question more than 10 percent of the program's annual operating budget.

46. Vancouver Features Tastes For All Senses -

Every place has a food.

Canada has poutine. Sure, the country probably has a few other things, too. But Canada has poutine.

And never mind that the gooey mess of fries, gravy and cheese curds actually has origins in Quebec, on the far eastern end of Canada. A few hours into our family’s first visit to Canada in Vancouver – yes, on the far western edge of the country – the first meal had to include poutine.

47. Tony Allen Sees his Bleak Chicago Existence in JIFF Kids -

52. Norvell: Build Relationships, But Lose the Headphones And Hats -

In some respects, it’s all very corny. This whole notion of a football team as a family and relationships being the foundation of everything.

So if you’re suspicious, or at least skeptical, of the talk coming from first-year University of Memphis football coach Mike Norvell as spring practice gets underway, it’s understandable.

53. St. Jude, Expedia Make Virtual Reality Experience -

The ad opens on a wide view of horses charging across a sweeping vista. As a camera pans over the scene, the voiceover from a child is eventually heard. “I love horses.”

The camera switches to a hospital room at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital occupied by Kiara, who’s shown with toy horses and coloring a picture of a horse. She was being filmed as part of a campaign launched by online travel site Expedia, in partnership with St. Jude.

62. Assisting Elderly Parents With Finances -

When ioby launched in Memphis in 2014, it brought with it the mantra that things occurring in our backyards in city neighborhoods are precisely what’s desirable.

More than $450,000 has been raised on ioby in Memphis for projects around town with the idea that people who live and work in neighborhoods are the ones who best know the needs. Ioby provides the online tool and offline resources to help communities make change through simple projects.

65. ‘Fearless’ Stewart Embraces Battles With Supermajority -

Democratic state Rep. Mike Stewart lives on the front lines of the Tennessee General Assembly. As chairman of the House Democratic Caucus with 26 members, Stewart could employ a bunker mentality, but instead has chosen to take the fight to the other side of the aisle.

66. Automation Plus Computer Services Takes Pride in South Memphis Roots -

67. Brandye Lee Training a New Generation of Diverse Dancers -

Brandye Lee is Memphis dance royalty. And like any true queen, she’s impossible to please.

“Jones, pull your tailbone down!” she screams. “No thumbs! And you have to get to fifth faster.”

68. Money is Emotional -

Ray’s Take You know yourself better than anyone else. You know what motivates you. You know what frightens you. But it is probably something very different for your friends.

A lot of personal finance books will tell you the best way to handle your finances from an unemotional perspective; this advice is worthless if it doesn’t work with your personality. You are not a robot and shouldn’t make important decisions like one.

69. Strickland Backs No-Gang Zones in Legal Challenge -

Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland says court-ordered zones that forbid alleged gang members from gathering or associating in public within the zone are working as a crime-fighting tactic.

75. The Moving Election -

The Trump balloons were a late arrival to the Shelby County Republican party’s annual Lincoln Day Gala, the local party’s largest annual fundraiser.

76. Last Word: Carson Cancels, Haslam Endorses, Bank Numbers and Kobe's Exit -

Presidential campaigns and the security concerns that come with them aren’t something that comes up a lot in terms of press coverage in this election cycle.
But it has come up leading into what will be a busy weekend locally and in the region among the presidential contenders.
Republican candidate Ben Carson was scheduled to attend both Sunday services at Highpoint Church in East Memphis.
Leaders of the church emphasized it was a non-political event in which Carson would talk about his personal story and his faith but would not make a political pitch.
This is not unprecedented.
In 2008, Republican contender Mike Huckabee attended an ordination ceremony for two ministers at Bellevue Baptist Church in Cordova – an event that was billed also as a nonpolitical event.
And so the reporters who came to cover the candidate who would win the Tennessee Republican primary days later watched not from the sanctuary but from the room where Bellevue’s video and audio feeds are coordinated. Huckabee talked politics with reporters after the service as he made a run for some barbecue to-go from Corky’s on his way to another city on the campaign trail.

79. Debt After Death -

Ray’s Take You can’t take it with you. Debt, that is. And most debt does not get passed to a spouse or other heirs. But debt collectors may try to get the money from family members anyway. For this reason, it’s good to know what happens to various forms of debt that may be left behind when a loved one dies.

80. Thanks, But Go Save Someone Else -

86. When Your Ship Doesn’t Come In, High Gear Says, ‘Swim to It!’ -

One of the most exciting – and also challenging – things about business ownership as an entrepreneur is that things are always changing, creating both opportunities as well as threats.

The recent explosion in technology advances have allowed businesses to become more flexible, more mobile and definitely more efficient. I have recently shifted my business accordingly and have been able to increase my bottom line while reducing overhead through technology. Women who own businesses must balance their time and prioritize important tasks constantly.
