(Nashville, TN) -- If you've waited until the last minute to file your taxes, that last minute has arrived.
Today is the deadline to file income taxes with the IRS and state of Tennessee, or ask for an extension. IRS officials say choosing to file electronically is still the best step someone can take to make sure their return is accurate and complete. Those who insist on filing a paper return are reminded to check their numbers carefully, especially when it comes to ID numbers like Social Security.
If you've heard me on the air the past couple of days, you may have noticed I sound like I'm speaking with my fingers plugging my nose. No, it's just springtime allergies kicking my butt! It doesn't seem to matter what I take, the sneezing and sniffling just gets worse. To kick off the spring season, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America released a list of the top 100 U.S. allergy capitals. On that list, three Tennessee cities came in the top 10: Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga. Surprisingly, Nashville entered the list at a relatively low 34. Please pass the tissue...
Spring is here which means it's time to blow the dust off my bike, fill the tires with air and lube up the chain. If you are a bicycle enthusiast like me, check this out.

A Virginia woman who falsely reported a Monday morning robbery at a Waffle House as an April Fools' Day prank has been arrested by police.
Susan Alexandria Tinker, 20, an employee at a Hampton, Va., branch of the Waffle House chain, allegedly called local authorities just before 6 a.m. Monday and claimed the restaurant was raided by robbers five minutes earlier, Hampton Police Division Cpl. Mary Shackelford told NBC News.
Police responded immediately and launched an investigation, interviewing other employees while a K-9 unit sniffed around the scene and investigators canvassed the neighborhood for suspects, Shackelford said.
But when police reviewed surveillance footage recorded during Tinker’s shift, they discovered unspecified evidence that the original 911 call was just an April Fools' Day hoax, Shackelford said.
Hampton police weren’t in the mood for a joke, and Tinker was arrested and charged with one misdemeanor count of falsely summoning police, according to authorities.
Shackelford said that police will not tolerate prank calls made to emergency officials.
