By the end of the twentieth century, many Tennesseans were used to seeing the Central Parking logo hanging about urban parking lots; few realized it was the largest parking company in the world. It was originally founded as a side venture by Monroe Carell Sr., an office worker for the Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis Railway. In the early 1950s, Carell leased a piece of property in downtown Nashville and began operating it as a surface parking lot. A few years later, he partnered with fellow employee Roy Dennis and leased some surplus properties from the railroad. Among those properties were large parking lots in St. Louis, ...

178 Government Agencies We Should Get Rid Of Immediately | The ...
We need a commission to study the feasibility of forming an agency to maintain an inventory of all those agencies. The new agency should also have an enforcement branch to make sure that none of the existing agencies change their names or zip codes without telling anyone. I would also propose a National Board of Governors for T-Shirts and Slogans. Like BBG but with a real mission. To round it out to 180, can we add Bureau of Indian Affairs (since they seem to only make the situation worse) and Federal Communications Commission (see my blog post on Localism )? market research, surveys and trends


Tennessee's early patterns of commercial exchange determined the location and growth of its urban centers. Commercial centers typically formed at some junction of land and water that required a break in the mode of transportation, usually from animal-powered overland wagons to some waterborne method of transport. In Tennessee, the major trade centers all formed along rivers at points conducive to navigation and protection from flooding. The advent of railroads allowed more flexibility in the location of new commercial centers of activity, but railroads also tended to reinforce the initial advantages gained by the earliest ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

JACKSON, Miss. — The state has spent a fraction of the $570 million in federal funds being used to expand the shipping hub at Gulfport but authorities say the multiyear project to bolster the port against hurricanes and to accommodate larger ships is on schedule. In the first year of the restoration project, about $27 million has been spent as the state completes the design and environmental review phase, said Brian Sullivan, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The project will expand the port from its current 220 acres to around 300 acres, Port Director Don Allee said Friday. In ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
5 candidates dip their toes in mayoral waters
The five candidates for Honolulu mayor met yesterday in Waipahu, courting West Oahu voters with varying solutions for islandwide problems such as homelessness and illegal fireworks, and specific promises to lessen traffic congestion. For four of the five, pushing forward with the city's $5.6 billion rail transit project would be a hallmark of their administration, while a familiar anti-rail voice spoke in favor of alternative traffic solutions such as increased high-occupancy toll roads. City Prosecutor Peter Carlisle, city Managing Director Kirk Caldwell, City Councilman Donovan Dela Cruz, University of Hawaii engineering ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
