Today’s edition of is chocked full of feature-level articles

I thought things were supposed to slowdown around the holidays. That’s certainly not the case today. This edition of has a number of articles that would be features on most days.

They are, in order: (1) coverage of the Tennessee Advanced Energy Business Council’s annual “Opportunities in Energy” forum; (2) Senator Lamar Alexander’s keynote address and other announcements at the East Tennessee Economic Council’s “Annual Meeting and Awards Celebration”; (3) a wonderful update from Children’s Media Studio on the release of “Sing and Spell: Christmas”; (4) the announcement of the next big idea out of Chattanooga, this time to create a health and wellness district; and (5) three GIVE grants from the State of Tennessee that total nearly $3 million to address workforce needs in Blount and Knox Counties.

Also, just for good measure and in keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, there’s a reminder of Life Science Tennessee’s holiday celebration tomorrow in Knoxville.

Happy reading!
