1. 50 years later, musicians still find magic in Beatles ‘Abbey Road’ -

“Sonic fairy dust” is a phrase stuck in my head the last few days as I returned to “Abbey Road.”

It’s an apt assessment that I adopted from one of the folks I interviewed, music masters of various degrees, who generally genuflected while agreeing the album – which has just been released in a remastered/remixed version for its golden anniversary – was “sprinkled with sonic fairy dust.”

2. Predators' Rinne flawless in blanking Wild 4-0 -

NASHVILLE (AP) — The way Pekka Rinne was playing, the Predators' slow start was irrelevant.

Rinne made 26 saves, Colton Sissons had a goal and an assist and Nashville beat the Minnesota Wild 4-0 on Thursday night.

3. Already ready for next Southern Festival of Books -

Nothing beats the Southern Festival of Books when it comes to Nashville’s annual events. I’m not even sure what comes in second.

My involvement with the festival, which recently completed its 31st edition, dates to the second in 1990. Among my very first assignments for The Tennessean was to interview one of the participants, Tom T. Hall, about the lineup of more than 140 authors expected. It included such notable authors as William Styron, Shelby Foote, Alex Haley and Sue Grafton.

11. Trump order aims to disclose 'real' costs for health care -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday that calls for upfront disclosure by hospitals of actual prices for common tests and procedures to keep costs down .

The idea is to give patients practical information that they can use to help save money. For example, if a hospital charges your insurer $3,500 for a type of echocardiogram and the same test costs $550 in a doctor's office, you might go for the lower-price procedure to save on copays.

12. Heinrichs named president at Tennessee Bank & Trust -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The partial government shutdown is spotlighting the limitations of President Donald Trump's erratic negotiating style.

21. Pettersson nets penalty shot, Canucks beat Predators 5-3 -

BEIJING (AP) — Don't mess with China and its growing cadre of powerful luxury consumers.

Dolce&Gabbana learned that lesson the hard way when it faced a boycott after Chinese expressed outrage over what were seen as culturally insensitive videos promoting a major runway show in Shanghai and subsequent posts of insulting comments in a private Instagram chat.

23. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's rhetoric on voter fraud is misleading -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing closely contested election races in Florida and Arizona, President Donald Trump is spreading misleading rhetoric regarding voting fraud.

He says votes are suspiciously appearing "out of the wilderness" in Arizona after Election Day to boost the Democratic candidate in the Senate race. It's actually typical for the state to take additional days after an election to finish tabulating mail-in votes.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has again been named one of the nation’s “most-wired” hospitals and health systems for its innovation and leadership in medical technology and health care information management.

26. Learn new offense? Titans' Blaine Gabbert on 8th in 8 years -

NASHVILLE (AP) — Quarterback Blaine Gabbert quickly stopped the reporter asking him about learning his fourth offense in four years.

"Eighth in eight years," he said.

The Tennessee Titans, who signed Gabbert in March to back up Marcus Mariota , are the fourth team that the quarterback has played for since being drafted by Jacksonville in 2011. But coach Mike Vrabel is his ninth different head coach and has the eighth different scheme that Gabbert has had to learn since he entered the NFL out of Missouri.

27. Tech giants still stumbling in the social world they created -

NEW YORK (AP) — Who knew connecting the world could get so complicated? Perhaps some of technology's brightest minds should have seen that coming.

Social media bans of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones have thrust Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and others into a role they never wanted — as gatekeepers of discourse on their platforms, deciding what should and shouldn't be allowed and often angering almost everyone in the process. Jones, a right-wing provocateur, suddenly found himself banned from most major social platforms this week, after years in which he was free to use them to promulgate a variety of false claims.

28. Green & Little selects Green as vice president -

Green & Little, L.P., real estate investment and development firm based in Gallatin, has named Anderson Green as vice president. Green oversees day-to-day business operations at the asset management level and will be more involved in the overall strategic direction for Green & Little. He has been with the company since 2014.

29. High-end homes, condos unaffected by slowing sales -

When the Nashville area first began to hit the $1 million mark for residential dwellings, those transactions were confined to Belle Meade.

And for years, the Nashville real estate market consisted of Nashvillians buying the homes of other Nashvillians. There was little migration into the area with much of the growth resulting from the children of current residents leaving the nest but choosing to move into a nearby tree.

30. Trump tariffs on US allies draw retaliation threats -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration delivered a gut punch to America's closest allies Thursday, imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, Mexico and Canada in a move that drew immediate vows of retaliation.

31. Subban the villain? Doesn’t bother him a bit -

It plays out like clockwork in nearly every NHL arena outside Nashville.

Predators defenseman P.K. Subban takes the ice for the first time, touches the puck and – immediately – boos reign down.

32. Still surprised by downtown condo sales? Check out 505 -

When approaching the downtown area, there is plenty of time to rest while sitting idly in the traffic and to develop a strategy for dodging the potholes in the fastest-growing, bestest city in the world. During their idle time, many drivers gaze skyward and notice the shining, glimmering building at 505 Church Street.

33. GOP Republicans return to work with Trump wish list in mind -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican majority in Congress was on a glide path to the midterms, having passed tax cuts into law and backed off budget battles with a year-end funding package. But President Trump was not impressed.

34. Musicians want freelance, contractor harassment protections -

Country music singer Katie Armiger re-emerged in the spotlight Monday to back legislation giving freelancers and contractors protection against sexual harassment.

Some two years after going public with accusations detailing country’s music’s untold story about how women are treated, one of sexual innuendoes, crude comments and unwanted touching by radio programmers and “influential professionals,” the 26-year-old Armiger remains caught up in a legal battle but hopes to keep other performers from falling into the same trap.

38. Smith eager to build Nashville Soccer Club -

When the final whistle blew at last on that cold Toronto night in 2010, Gary Smith recalls the pure bedlam of the moment.

39. Ekholm, Fiala lead Predators to 6-3 win over Capitals -

NASHVILLE (AP) — The trade that sent Filip Forsberg to Nashville has not worked out well for the Washington Capitals.

40. In Mexico, $2 per hour workers make $40,000 SUVs -

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Auto worker Ivan Flores spends his days transporting parts for U.S.-bound Audi SUVs at a plant in central Mexico, but he laughs when asked if he could ever buy one of the $40,000 Q5 SUVs the plant produces on his $2.25 per hour salary.

43. Tanney hopes Nashville is not his last stop -

By the time you read this, it is possible that Alex Tanney might have already thrown his last pass as a member of the Tennessee Titans.

But Tanney, even if he doesn’t make the 53-man roster in Tennessee, says he won’t stop pursuing his dream. As the Titans closed out the preseason in Kansas City on Thursday, the dread of impending roster cuts turned into reality this weekend around the NFL.

45. State panel sheds new light on racial atrocities -

State Rep. Johnnie Turner has seen what can happen when old wounds are never allowed to heal.

She’s seen it most recently in clashes between neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen and white supremacists and those who resist their hatred in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a counter-protester was killed and 19 were injured when a car was intentionally driven into a group of counter protesters. Two state troopers also died in a helicopter crash that weekend.

46. NAFTA negotiations could mark end of era for Mexican exports -

MEXICO CITY (AP) — President Donald Trump's push to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement is putting Mexico in a tough spot, threatening the system that has helped turn the country into a top exporter through low wages, lax regulations and proximity to the United States.

47. Middle Tennessee has it made in the celestial shade -

David Bates has been looking forward to August 21, 2017, for a very long time.

More than 53 years to be exact, ever since he was a second grader in Mrs. Niefer’s class at Alex Green Elementary School. Back then, his interest was sparked in solar eclipses after they watched a movie about them on the classroom’s 16 mm projector.

48. Should children play football? -

It was the second concussion that made the decision an easy one for Brentwood parent Chris Hulshof.

49. New Trump rules on Cuba travel leaves winners and losers -

President Donald Trump's new policy on Cuba travel has winners and losers: Group tour operators hope to sell more trips, but bed-and-breakfast owners in Cuba say they're losing business.

Five of 12 private bed-and-breakfast owners in Havana and Cuba's southern colonial city of Trinidad told The Associated Press that they received cancellations after Trump's June 16 announcement .

50. Trump to tout apprenticeships as way to fill jobs gap -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says apprenticeships could match workers with millions of open jobs, but he's reluctant to devote more taxpayer money to the effort.

Instead, Trump and Labor Secretary Alex Acosta say the administration is focused on getting universities and private companies to pair up and pay the cost of such learn-to-earn arrangements.

51. White House tries to regroup, but Trump isn't helping -

WASHINGTON (AP) — In its effort to regain control of its message, the White House has curtailed press briefings, redirected questions on the Russia investigation to an outside lawyer and planned a major infrastructure policy rollout for this week.

52. Analysis: Budget shows Trump's trouble figuring out Congress -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's first budget proposal, snubbed by some Republican allies, is just the latest example of an administration that seems at times clueless or indifferent toward Congress.

53. Preds, Pens, Sens, Ducks traded their way to NHL's final 4 -

Draft and develop is the most common way to win in the salary-cap NHL, and with eight of the past 11 playoff MVPs being homegrown, that hasn't changed.

But the four teams left vying for the Stanley Cup this spring — the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators in the East and Nashville Predators and Anaheim Ducks in the West — all made a handful of significant trades to get to this point. As much as general managers complain that it's hard to make deals because of the cap, Pittsburgh's Jim Rutherford, Ottawa's Bryan Murray and Pierre Dorion, Nashville's David Poile and Anaheim's Bob Murray have shown a knack for getting good ones done.

54. Predators take 2-1 series lead, beating St. Louis Blues 3-1 -

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Nashville Predators finally had a chance to show how they would react to their first loss this postseason.

Returning home, they put their deep scoring on display and bounced back with a big victory.

55. Voices from around the world consider Trump's first 100 days -

It was the most stunning political victory of the 21st century, one that brought shocked concern in many parts of the world and cheers in others. One uncontroversial certainty was that it would cause reverberations around the globe.

56. Trump boasts of hiring only the best, but picks haunt him -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump likes to boast that he hires only the best people. But his personnel choices keep coming back to haunt him.

One of the people Trump hired for the White House was working as a foreign agent while advising him during the election. His campaign chairman caught the Justice Department's attention for similarly surreptitious work. And a third campaign adviser was reportedly surveilled by the FBI as part of an investigation into whether or not he was a Russian spy.

57. US stock indexes end little changed; oil price recovers -

The major U.S. stock indexes barely budged Tuesday on another day of mostly light trading ahead of the Easter holiday weekend.

Technology stocks declined the most, while real estate companies notched the biggest gains. Oil prices recovered after an early slide. Bond yields fell and the price of gold rose as investors kept an eye on rising geopolitical tensions.

58. Back-to-back Dak? Dobbs shines at Senior Bowl -

To say Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs might be the next Dak Prescott is a stretch. Or is it?

Prescott, the former Mississippi State quarterback, caught the eye of the Dallas Cowboys with his MVP performance in the 2016 Senior Bowl. The Cowboys chose Prescott in the fourth round (No. 135 overall pick) of the 2016 NFL Draft, and it proved a fruitful pick.

59. McCarver named COO for Vanderbilt Adult Hospital -

Scott McCarver, associate operating office for Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital and Clinics, has been named chief operating officer for the Vanderbilt University Adult Hospital.

61. Legendary Orbison poised for posthumus comeback -

“Dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah ….” Probably not a pretty sound, but that’s what I was singing – “Only the Lonely” – when I pulled my ancient Saab into a visitor’s spot in the parking lot outside the building named for Nashville’s most-celebrated rock star, a kind man with a voice that soared from baritone to tenor as he sang of heartache, loss and, very seldom, life’s triumphs.

62. Fast-paced banter, pop allusions lift Gilmore Girls -

“Gilmore Girls,” a show that ran on the WB, and the CW, from 2000-2007, has been streaming on Netflix since July of this year. I like it. I like the fast-paced dialogue, the pop culture references and the less-burdened Lauren Graham.

63. The war to deliver more to your door -

First, there was pizza. Maybe Chinese food. But for most the only home food delivery option was round, covered in tomato sauce and cheese, and sometimes cold on arrival. Now, technology has changed the game to enable delivery of everything from sushi to burgers.

64. Finding success in the shifting restaurant business -

Look at the restaurant to your left. Now look at the restaurant to your right. Chances are, one of them won’t be there by 2020.

The restaurant industry has low profit margins and a notoriously high failure rate. And with new eateries opening by the week in Nashville, it’s reasonable to assume some won’t make it past the critical five-year mark.

65. Prison company fights to seal documents about strip searches -

NASHVILLE (AP) — Private prison operator Corrections Corporation of America is trying to seal from public view documents in a lawsuit that claim female visitors to a Tennessee prison were forced to undergo strip searches to prove they were menstruating.

67. The world at your doorstep -

There is nothing you can’t get delivered these days. If you can imagine owning it, it’s only a matter of time before it can be in your possession, brought to your front door within minutes, hours or days from the first moment you even conjured the thought of having it.

68. Hendersonville's Hurd eyes the record -

Jalen Hurd knows right where he stands among Tennessee’s running backs of the past and wants to be No. 1 in career rushing yards at the end of the 2016 season.

Top residential real estate sales, March 2016, for Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

71. Back to Cuba? No, Martinez happy in Nashville -

When Chuchi hugs me after his black beans and rice, I mentally thank Barack Obama (I’ll get back to him much later) for leading me to one of Nashville’s most urban intersections, where I sit at an alfresco café table, watching the traffic whip by and listening to sirens and parking-lot conversation conducted, for the most part, in a foreign language.

72. Freshman pitcher Raby ‘living a dream’ at Vanderbilt -

Vanderbilt freshman Patrick Raby was sitting in the bullpen Feb. 19 at Hawkins Field in Nashville in front of 3,054 fans, a record crowd for a Commodore home opener.

73. LocalShares expands with new leadership, divisions -

Middle Tennessee's $1 million-plus residential real estate transactions for 2015, Davidson, Williamson, Rutherford, Wilson and Sumner counties, as compiled by Chandler Reports.

76. Titans try to balance patience, urgency in searches -

And so we enter Week 2 in the Tennessee Titans search for a new general manager and perhaps a new head coach.

It is possible that one or both of those positions could be filled within a week, but the assumption in going through this process is that controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk, team president Steve Underwood, part owner Kenneth Adams IV and vice president of football administration Vin Marino will do their due diligence and not make a hasty decision as to whom to trust in the rebuilding of their football franchise.

77. Despite rhetoric, Florida game critical for Jones -

Tennessee’s Butch Jones will coach the biggest game of his three-year tenure with the Vols – and probably the biggest of his entire coaching career – at Florida on Saturday.

Like it or not, Jones is carrying the weight of UT’s 10-game losing streak to Florida on his shoulders.

78. Vols’ Dobbs embraces the role of ‘CEO quarterback’ -

Joshua Dobbs enters his junior season as Tennessee’s undisputed No. 1 quarterback and team leader, the player most responsible for the Vols’ relevance again in SEC football.

Perhaps Dobbs will guide the Vols to an SEC East Division title, or even a league championship. Maybe we will see Dobbs in the NFL one day, or designing a spacecraft for NASA.

79. Jones, Vols make honor roll with recruiting class -

KNOXVILLE – Butch Jones has done it again.

Tennessee’s football coach has created a national buzz with his 2015 recruiting class.

UT finished with the No. 4 class in the nation as rated by 247Sports and ended up ranked No. 5 by Rivals when the Feb. 4 national signing day was over.

80. Beacons pop up in stores ahead of holidays -

NEW YORK (AP) — From American Eagle to Apple Stores, beacons are popping up everywhere. Are they a shopper's best friend or another pesky Big Brother monitoring our every move?

The square or rectangular devices, smaller than a smartphone, can hang on a wall or be placed on a machine and communicate with your phone via Bluetooth signals. Accessed through apps you download to your smartphone, beacon technology can do everything from guide you to the correct airport terminal to turn on your coffee maker as you sleepily enter the kitchen. In retail, beacons aim to entice you to spend money. As you enter a store, your smartphone might light up with a sale alert. Stand in the dress section for a while and a coupon may pop up for something on a nearby hanger.

81. Holiday travelers greeted by cheap gas, storms -

Some holiday travelers are giving thanks for the cheapest gas prices in years. But that's cold comfort to those beating a path through stormy weather, including a nor'easter affecting a wide swath of the East Coast.

82. Vols unlikely to repeat November 2013 collapse -

KNOXVILLE – University of Tennessee football coach Butch Jones doesn’t have to remind his team about the disappointing fade last November.

UT went 0-3 to start what has historically been its best month of football. First, the Vols lost to Missouri and Auburn. Then a 14-10 loss to Vanderbilt in Neyland Stadium knocked the Vols out of bowl eligibility.

83. Top Middle Tennessee residential real estate transactions August 2014 -

84. Hurdles for Obama health law in 2nd sign-up season -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Potential complications await consumers as President Barack Obama's health care law approaches its second open enrollment season, just two months away.

Don't expect a repeat of last year's website meltdown, but the new sign-up period could expose underlying problems with the law itself that are less easily fixed than a computer system.

85. More businesses using high-speed connections -

Connected Tennessee hopes to see broadband adoption and use continue to rise among Tennessee businesses, which have $31 billion in annual online sales.

The latest statewide research indicates 76 percent of state businesses in Tennessee are connected to broadband, compared to 55 percent in 2007.

87. Yarbrough, Little join new Bone McAllester group -

Attorneys Ed Yarbrough and Alex Little have joined Bone McAllester Norton PLLC, creating a new division of criminal defense and government investigations.

88. Worth the trip: Midstate is home to a variety of well-loved restaurants -

There are certain signs that are sure to tip off whether you’ve found a dining gem.

If you call and the owner can’t talk because she is “up to her elbows in red velvet cake” (Miller’s Grocery, Christiana), then you know it might be worth a stop.

89. Alternative to Gordian-knot thinking -

I always liked the so-called Alexandrian solution. In summary, there was a length of rope tied into an unbelievably complex knot in a kingless kingdom located in an area that is considered modern day Turkey. It was called the Gordian knot; named after an ox-cart driving peasant farmer named Gordias.

90. US 30-year mortgage rate at 2-year high: 4.46 pct. -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. mortgage rates have suddenly jumped from near-record lows and are adding thousands of dollars to the cost of buying a home.

The average rate on the 30-year fixed loan soared this week to 4.46 percent, according to a report Thursday from mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. That's the highest average in two years and a full point more than a month ago.

91. US 30-year mortgage rate at 2-year high: 4.46 pct. -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The average U.S. rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage surged this week to 4.46 percent, the highest in two years.

The increase from a 3.93 percent average last week was the largest one-week jump in 26 years, according to a report Thursday from mortgage buyer Freddie Mac. And it shows the Federal Reserve's hints that it might slow its bond purchases this year are already affecting consumers.
