‘A strong, determined businesswoman’

Junior Achievement’s Archer a role model for program’s participants

By the time interim president Callie Archer applied for the top post at Junior Achievement of East Tennessee, where she’d worked for three years, operating expenses had reached $60,000 a month, JAET was paying more than $100,000 in interest each year on a construction loan and its bank account had dwindled to less than $5,000. Funds were barely trickling in, and the prospect of keeping the nonprofit afloat was overwhelming.

JOE ROGERS: MY TAKE

Leaf ’em alone? So long to sweet smell of autumn

Ask me in April what the best season is, and I might say spring, swayed by the return of baseball.

Broncos at Titans: What to watch

The Titans rode their defense as far as it would take them against the Chiefs, and for three quarters-plus it looked like it would be enough to bring home a win from Kansas City before falling short in overtime.
