CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Erlanger has ended its 2013 fiscal year with a $7.9 million deficit -- a far cry from the original $10.8 million profit the hospital had budgeted for, but not as bleak as initial projections.

Hospital officials had initially estimated the hospital might close the year showing double digits in the red, possibly surpassing 2012's $9.5 million deficit last year.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
