Aug. 2: Tax Day for AL, TN taxpayers; deadline to end August AdvCTC payment

Ah, August. In normal times (remember those?), we'd be complaining about the late-summer heat, parents would be counting down days until school started, and tax geeks would be looking at things they should do this month. Well, things are decidedly not normal. It's been abnormally hot in much of the country already. Some schools are reopening, but with more COVID-19 precautions than they had planned since the virus has re-emerged with a vengeance due to the Delta variant. Those August tax moves...

I’ve had Silver Dollar City on my bucket list for two decades and I’m happy to say the 1880s Ozarks theme park didn’t disappoint after such a long wait and a seemingly endless buildup. Silver Dollar City most recently popped up on my radar again when the park topped the 2020 USA Today Readers Choice Awards as America’s best theme park. I’d been aware of the park since 2001 when the WildFire roller coaster by Switzerland-based ridemaker Bolliger & Mabillard debuted at the park. Silver Dollar City...
