Video: IWA Wrestling Vol. 1 - Best Of The 70s
Watch This Video!
Studio: Taylor Marketing & All-Star Wrestling
The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Featured here are a few of the Big Time Wrestling moments with the wisdom of Veteran mic man Chuck Allen and his partner Terry Sullivan filling us in on the action and shows coming up and the latest news. But the bonus here is the Memphis match that features the silver tongue, Lance Russell. Russell was like a good friend telling you always what was on his mind. The guys on the "stick" were a huge part of thousands of Wrestling fans on Saturday morning and the golden era of the 70s.

          Memphis Music Hall of Fame Announces 2018 Inductees      Cache   Translate Page      
The Memphis Music Hall of Fame just announced this year's inductees, who officially enter the ranks of honorees at the induction ceremony this November. The Hall of Fame, a nonprofit set up in 2012 and administered by the  Memphis Rock N' Soul Museum, now celebrates the works of over seventy artists or groups, and shows no signs of lacking local talent for future recognition.

This year's inductees are, as usual, giants in their respective genres. We pay tribute to them here with clips of them working their magic onstage. Towering over them all is the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who died just last month. She will be paid a special tribute in November's ceremony, as the Hall of Fame honors a legend who called Memphis her birthplace.


Another soul giant, Eddie Floyd, will also be inducted this year. The writer and hit performer behind "Knock on Wood" and many other Stax hits, Floyd's songs were interpreted by nearly every Stax artist. Naturally, not a year has gone by without at least one artist from the label being inducted.


O'Landa Draper
, the Grammy Award-winning gospel singer and director of the Associates Choir, was considered one of the top gospel artists of the 1990s. He too will join the ranks of honorees this year. Though not born in Memphis, Draper moved to Memphis at the age of 13 and attended Overton High School and the University of Memphis.


At today's announcement event, there was some light-hearted discussion of whether Draper could be honored in the same program as fellow 2018 inductees, 8 Ball & MJG. They will be, we were assured, but the musical numbers won't be juxtaposed. The rap duo are on a roll lately, ramping up their live appearances and continuing to drop new albums. (See our recent profile of them below).


In keeping with the Hall of Fame's tradition of inducting groups as well as solo artists, the Box Tops were also added this year. With Big Star having been inducted in 2014, this makes for two groups associated with Alex Chilton getting the nod. Could he be recognized as a solo artist in his own right one day? In any case, the announcement also named checked original members Danny Smythe, Bill Cunningham, and Gary Talley, as well as 1968 additions Rick Allen and Thomas Boggs. The fabulous guitar in this video clip was not mentioned by name.


Another group, arguably far more groundbreaking than the Box Tops, was also recognized: The Rock and Roll Trio, responsible for the groundbreaking "Train Kept A-Rollin'" and other rockabilly masterpieces. Driven by the savvy guitar attack of Paul Burlison, brothers and Memphis natives Dorsey and Johnny Burnette took the world by storm, once upon a time. Here they are from 1956.


And finally, another legend from the first days of Elvis, who most certainly has not left the building, is George Klein, the pioneering DJ and rock 'n' roll television host who was critical to giving regional bands exposure via his programming. He was also an early friend to the King, and had the honor of inducting Elvis into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He'll be honored with the other performers above (for he, in his own way, was an artist as well) at the induction ceremony, scheduled for November 1st at the Cannon Center. Here's George sharing a strange moment with the great Sam Phillips.

Since President Trump has been terrifying us about a huge national crime epidemic, it's time to mention that we have a doozy in Arkansas. There's been nothing like it in at least a hundred years.

Since President Trump has been terrifying us about a huge national crime epidemic, it's time to mention that we have a doozy in Arkansas. There's been nothing like it in at least a hundred years.

But the predators are the white-collar kind and they only corrupt government and empty the public purse. The politicians who are headed to prison are God-fearing Christians who were elected for their piety, and they and probably their criminal collaborators wouldn't harm a hair on your head. Friends and pastors testify at their sentencings about the good they do when they aren't conniving to steal from the public accounts or giving their friends and benefactors the pass code to tens of millions of dollars of Medicaid largesse and state general-improvement funds.

For three years, the prints have carried stories about the fraud at a little Bible college outside the Ozark hamlet of Elm Springs that no one had heard of outside the rural township where Ecclesia College trained a few dozen youngsters in Bible studies, Christian counseling or sports management. State Sen. Jon Woods set up a scheme to get a dozen or so fellow legislators from Northwest Arkansas to channel some $700,000 of your taxes to the college's president so he could buy real estate around the rural school and then kick back part of the money to Woods and his friend Rep. Micah Neal.

Woods got 18 years and four months in federal prison last week and was ordered to pay $1,626,500 in restitution. The judge listened to pleas to go easy on this wonderful Christian man, but the judge was unmoved, noting that it took nearly three weeks for prosecutors to put on the evidence of all his crimes. It seemed, the judge said, that Woods had nothing on his mind as a public servant but to make money for himself and his friends, including a big salary for his girlfriend from a Missouri corporation that was trying to get deeper into the Arkansas Medicaid trough.

So far, only six legislators have been convicted or charged with crimes in the investigation of a Northwest Arkansas planning district's distribution of lawmakers' pot of surplus state funds. Many other lawmakers have been implicated in the schemes, although most of them so far seem not to have criminal culpability — only ignorance or bad judgment. Lobbyists and consultants who collaborated with them are going to jail, along with the Ecclesia president.

Jon Woods was emblematic of a modern breed of legislator, one who, as observed last week by Rex Nelson, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette columnist and Arkansas promoter, runs for the legislature just to make a good living. He looked for ways to monetize everything. A fellow Republican senator had reported a bribe offer from Woods in 2011, when there were fears that the three Democrats on the state Board of Apportionment would throw neighboring Republicans into the same district to get rid of a few of them and create more Democratic openings. Woods told his colleague that for $10,000 he would move into another district. But the Democrats didn't gerrymander them and both kept their seats. Sen. Jim Hendren (R-Sulphur Springs) was obliged to report the attempted bribery to the prosecutor, but he refused to wear a microphone and tape Woods, which would have exposed a rising Republican star. When Woods landed a swell apartment in the state building across the street from the Capitol, fellow Republican Sen. Denny Altes of Fort Smith was envious and paid Woods $5,000 to rent his taxpayer-subsidized apartment.

Last year, Mike Maggio, a Republican circuit judge, went to prison for 10 years for taking a bribe arranged by the former state Republican chairman and Republican leader of the state Senate to cut $4.2 million from the judgment against a nursing-home titan for the family of a woman who died from mistreatment in a nursing home. The bribe came through a series of sham political action committees.

You might remember Ted Suhl and Justin Harris, whose Arkansas misdeeds made the national news in 2015 and 2016. Suhl, a supporter and benefactor of Gov. Mike Huckabee, ran a behavioral residential facility in Northeast Arkansas called The Lord's Ranch, which operated with millions of federal and state dollars. Suhl flew Huckabee around the country on his plane. In 2016, he was convicted and sentenced to seven years in federal prison and fined $200,000 for bribing a state administrator and former legislator to get more tax money sent to The Lord's Ranch. Suhl transmitted the bribe through the politician's West Memphis church.

Harris was a state representative at West Fork who started a preschool and daycare called Growing God's Kingdom, which got 90 percent of its money from the state and special favors from the state Division of Children and Family Services. He used his legislative muscle to control the state office, including adopting two girls, age 3 and 5, for which social workers said the Harrises were not proper parents. Harris deemed the girls possessed by Satan and kept them locked in a room, even while claiming state payments for them daily at his preschool. He finally "rehomed" them to a friend, who was convicted of sexually abusing one of them. The legislature finally made Harris' actions criminal — in the future, not applying to him.

Nelson, the communications director for three Republican politicians and who does not go around badmouthing politicians, made another subtle observation: that the new breed of legislator, whether a member or not, tends to show up at every interim committee meeting, sign the sheet for his $150-or-so per diem and go about his business.

Just the other day they showed up in droves for a meeting of Governor Hutchinson's celebrated regulation-killing committee. Among other empty gestures, they abolished the lengthy rules adopted some 40 years ago on how to operate vehicle-safety inspection stations, which themselves were ended two decades ago. The rules were in a dusty file, not costing the state a dime or anyone inconvenience. It allowed the governor to brag about vast tax savings by ending corrosive regulations.

Modern state government at work.

          Why Is The Government Buying Dead And Dying Malls?       Cache   Translate Page      

For the past year, we've covered the epic collapse of shopping malls - the crowning achievement of the 1980's retail model - with mall vacancies hitting a six-year high in July. 

Once vacant - or nearly vacant, these once-vibrant malls have become a blight on local communities across the country - driving down nearby property values as we're reminded why Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is the richest man on the planet. 

The solution? Local municipalities are using land banks; government-backed or quasi-public entities typically used to buy derelict homes, to snap up the dead malls, reports the Wall Street Journal

“As we recovered from the recession, the market has reabsorbed some properties but not in the smaller communities that never recovered,” said Frank Alexander, co-founder and senior adviser of the Center for Community Progress, which promotes land banks. “In those places, we’re getting more questions about how to deal with abandoned shopping centers.” -WSJ

In May, the Springfield, Ohio Clark County Land Reutilization Corp bought the Upper Valley Mall for $3 million, after J.C. Penny and Macy's closed their stores in 2015, while other stores such as Sears and Foot Locker have continued to operate. 

“Nothing was being done in our opinion,” said Thomas Hale, Clark County land bank executive director. “This is just one project we felt we had to protect.” 

Hale says he's in talks with potential investors to redevelop the mall into a mixed-use site which would include housing, a soccer field and a smaller retail presence

In other instances, governments opt to get rid of retail entirely. The City of Memphis purchased Raleigh Springs Mall and demolished it last year to build a new community center. The $28 million Raleigh Town Center, which will have a library, police and traffic precinct, an 11-acre lake and a skate park, is slated to be completed June 2019. -WSJ

And while malls in rich neighborhoods are doing just fine, growing government involvement with shopping centers in poorer areas is yet another sign that private investors may be losing interest in the vacant properties, even at fire-sale prices. 

“It’s a new issue,” said Thomas Dobrowski, executive managing director of capital markets at Newmark Knight Frank - a real-estate services firm. “When a mall gets to a point of no return and when no private buyer is willing to reinvest in it, it comes down to the value of the dirt.”

That said, it's not always easy for governments to snap up the dead and dying properties - as malls have giant footprints which make it tough to propose alternate uses. 

For big boxes in particular, there are limited uses of that space,” said Michele Wildman, executive director at Genesee County Land Bank, which is currently listing 58 commercial properties for sale - including a 101,900 sqft former Kmart store. The lack of windows and giant footprint have made it difficult to do much with it. 

Redevelopment plans can also lose traction if city council members and residents can't agree on proposed new uses, while multiple owners and multiple buyers can hinder deals as well. 

That said, many municipalities have forged ahead with their plans; 

The petition sped up negotiations for a deal between the remaining owner and the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, which had been acquiring pieces of the mall since 2015. The development board bought the final piece eventually. It is now in talks with a developer who has plans to demolish the current building and develop a logistics center there. -WSJ

“I’m hoping we can move it along for the community,” said Sheila Sweeney, chief executive officer at St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. “People really want something to happen, but right now it’s sitting there decaying.

          IAN GILLAN: Ian Gillan & The Javelins      Cache   Translate Page      

Was bitte soll ein Mann wie IAN GILLAN machen, der sein Leben mit DEEP PURPLE gelebt hat und die gehen in Rente? Weitere Solosachen? Neu anfangen ist raus, mit 73 darf man es ruhiger angehen. Oder man kramt in der eigenen Vergangenheit und holt seine alte Band zusammen, mit der sein Leben als Musiker begann. THE JAVELINS taten in den frühen 60ern das, was wir Hard`n ´Heavy-Musiker mit all den DEEP PURPLE-Klassikern machten: nachspielen und stolz drauf sein. So zogen THE JAVELINS mit allerlei Klassiker ihrer eigenen Idole durch die Clubs Englands, trennten sich, fanden wieder zusammen für das 94er Cover-Album „Sole Agency and Representation“. Nun ist es also wieder soweit, die reifen Herren trafen sich im schönen Hamburg und haben in vier Tagen Oldies aufgenommen und hatten hörbar viel Spaß! THE JAVELINS: Senioren-Rock mit gute Laune-Garantie Natürlich reden wir hier von Klassikern, welche den Altersdurchschnitt der vampster-Leser um 300% hochschrauben. Aber Musik sollte sich nicht über Schubladen definieren, sondern dadurch, dass sie Spaß macht. Total frisch legen die Herren los, versuchen nicht, irgendwas zu modernisieren, bringen allein durch ihre Spielfreude und den für diese Musik sehr energischen Sound den Beat ins Haus. Bei „Do You Love Me“ swingt man sofort mit, bei CHUCK BERRYs „Memphis, Tennessee“ wird der Staubwedel zur Luftgitarre. Bei JERRY LEE LEWIS „High School Confidential“, BERRYs „Rock And Roll Music“ oder dem coolen „You’re Gonna Ruin Me, Baby“ wippt, Metaller hin oder her, unweigerlich der Fuß mit. Kraftvolle bluesy Tunes bei HOWLIN´ WOLFs „Smokestack Lightnin´“, „What I’d Say“ bringt die Bude zum Kochen. Ja ja, manches ist einfach Schunkelmusik. Aber Bewegung ist gesund, egal wie alt man ist oder sich fühlt! Zeitlose Songs, gutgelaunte Musiker, Spaß in der Bude Es gibt 60ies Beat, 50ies Rock`n´Roll, soulige und bluesige Songs, Rhythm n´ Blues, Country und irgendwie, ja ich wiederhole mich, macht das alles richtig Spaß. Weil man den Musikern anhört, wie viel Spaß sie hatten im Studio, weil die Songs schlichtweg Klassiker sind, und weil sie hier gut klingen ohne zwingend auf modern getrimmt zu sein. Ärgerlich diese fummeligen Papphüllen, die früher oder später die CD zerkratzen. Dass es anders geht zeigt ALICE COOPER auf dem tollen neuen Live-Album „A Paranormal Evening“, wo die CDs liebevoll in schwarzen Papierhüllen geschützt werden. Aber man kann bei „Ian Gillan & The Javelins“ eh passend zum Vinyl greifen. Tipp: Wem das alles hier zu alt und unmetallisch ist, schon mal in den Supermarkt geschaut? Ist gleich Weihnachten! Und die ein oder andere Mama oder Tante oder große Schwester mochte immer schon genau diese Musik. Die hätten mit der Scheibe sicher viel Spaß! Und wenn die begeistert im Player landet schau mal auf deinen Fuß! Wippt mit, gell?!

          PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows      Cache   Translate Page      
PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows no signs of abating for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Authentic Raptors Jerseys . Thankfully for the Penguins, neither is Sidney Crosby. Crosbys 19th goal of the season broke a tie with just over 6 minutes remaining and Pittsburgh edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Monday night for their fourth straight victory. Chris Conner and Brandon Sutter also scored for the Penguins, who were playing without a number of regulars, including forward Evgeni Malkin. "We keep finding ways," Crosby said. "A lot has to do with the way the (new guys) are playing." Pittsburgh took the ice with a handful of players who have spent the majority of the season at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League and only one defenceman -- Matt Niskanen -- with more than one year of NHL experience. It hardly mattered on a night the Penguins kept the speedy Maple Leafs in check. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for Pittsburgh to improve to 27-3 in his past 30 home starts. Pittsburgh has won four straight and nine of 10. "Its a pretty unique situation," Niskanen said. "One rookie and five young guys playing. ... These guys have been coming up and playing with confidence and doing a good job. Thats exciting for the organization." Morgan Rielly scored the first goal of his career for the Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier made 28 saves, but couldnt stop Toronto from losing for the fourth time in its past five games. "We just werent sharp," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. The Penguins have a firm grip on the top of the Metropolitan Division despite a series of injuries to high-profile players. Kris Letang joined fellow defenceman Brooks Orpik (concussion), Paul Martin (broken leg) and Rob Scuderi (broken ankle) on the IR Monday with an upper-body injury of his own, forcing coach Dan Bylsma to get creative with his pairings. Rookie Philip Samuelsson, whose father Ulf won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins in the early 1990s, made his NHL debut against the Maple Leafs. The younger Samuelsson received a quick lesson from his teammates on the level of expectation from Brian Dumoulin, playing in just the second game of his career. Dumoulin helped give the Penguins a quick 1-0 lead, collecting the puck near the point then firing it on net, allowing Conner to jab it by Bernier for his third goal of the season 39 seconds into the game. The tally seemed to embolden Pittsburgh, which controlled play for long stretches in the first period, keeping Bernier busy while the defence did a fine job of neutralizing Torontos speedy counterattack. The Maple Leafs tied it 6:03 into the second as Rielly, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, skated through the Pittsburgh zone and beat Fleury over the goaltenders right shoulder for the highly regarded defencemans first career goal. The power-play score ended the Penguins streak of 18 consecutive penalty kills, though the score had less to do with any kind of breakdown and more to do with Riellys wicked wrist shot. Toronto kept the pressure on well into the third period, but Pittsburgh regained control after killing off an illegal check to the head penalty on Robert Bortuzzo, who levelled Maple Leaf forward Jerry DAmigo during a collision near centre ice. The 6-foot-4 defenceman, who has struggled to crack the lineup, shook off the penalty and even picked up his first point of the season on Crosbys winner. The Maple Leafs won the draw deep in their zone but Bortuzzo knocked down the clearing attempt then fed the puck up the wall to Pascal Dupuis, who slipped a quick pass to Crosby between the circles. "There was a lot of room there," Crosby said. "(Dupuis) made a great pass on my tape and I found the back of the net. Sutters short-handed empty-net goal with 3 seconds left sealed it and the Penguins remained hot while the Maple Leafs couldnt back up a promising 7-3 romp over defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago on Saturday night. "We were a little inconsistent, but we did do some good things," Torontos Dion Phaneuf said. "Weve got to capitalize on the power play and do some things better." NOTES: Toronto finished 1 of 5 on the power play. ... The Penguins are 13-1 when leading after the first period. ... Pittsburgh has won eight straight games at Consol Energy Center. ... The Maple Leafs begin a three-game homestand on Tuesday against Florida. ... Pittsburgh forward Jason Megna left with a lower body injury and did not return. He is not expected to play Wednesday when the Penguins face the Rangers in New York. Jakob Poeltl Jersey . The Mavericks avoided a season sweep by the Nuggets, who ran away with a win in Denver two weeks ago to hand Dallas its longest losing streak at three games. Dallas (42-28) got a boost in the playoff race when Miami rallied from seven down in the last 3 1/2 minutes to beat Memphis 91-86 Friday night. Serge Ibaka Jersey . Those who impressed in each of the three events were asked to attend the main CFL Combine which begins Friday in Toronto. http://www.cheapraptorsjerseyschina.com/...ry-jersey/ . -- Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the sideline as the Packers make their push for a perfect regular season.NEW YORK -- Aaron Hill was ready to wait all night to get this game in. Hill had a two-run homer wiped out by a rain storm that postponed the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets in the fourth inning on Friday night after a delay of 2 hours, 11 minutes. "To get a win ... yeah," Hill said. "We need a few of those." The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Sunday. The first game will start at 1:10 p.m. Manager Kirk Gibson said the Diamondbacks, who are in last place in the NL West at 18-31, will likely call up a pitcher for the makeup start Sunday. The Mets will go with Daisuke Matsuzaka in the second game of the traditional twinbill. Rafael Montero will make his regularly scheduled start in the opener against Bronson Arroyo. Matsuzaka has been pitching out of the bullpen this season but the converted starter doesnt see going deep into the game as a problem. "I pitched yesterday but just one inning, did not throw too many pitches," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "I do not think 100 pitches should be a problem" The Diamondbacks are flying back to Arizona after the game Sunday. They host the San Diego Padres on Monday night but the doubleheader was the only option for the teams that do not meet again this season. They have no common days off the rest of the way. "Id rather stay," and wait it out, Gibson said, "but I can see it was raining." Last seasons series between the teams at Citi Field was also plagued by rain. "Good old New York," Hill said. Hill gave Arizona the lead in the second inning with a homer off Bartolo Colon that just cleared the fence in left field. Rookie Chase Anderson allowed one hit and a walk in his third big league start for the Diamondbacks. Dark clouds rolled in during the bottom of the third inning and the public address announcer made a request for fans sitting in exposed areas to move to protected areas. After Colon pitched a perfect fourth, thhe grounds crew brought out the tarp and rain began to fall shortly after. C.J. Miles Jersey. The Mets swept the Diamondbacks in a three-game series in Arizona April 14-16, but the teams are in very different places now. The Mets are 6-14 in May while the D-backs are 9-9 even though they were just dropped three straight at St. Louis. Hill connected on a two-seam fastball from Colon after Miguel Montero led off with a nubber up the third base line for a hit. Mets manager Terry Collins before the game talked about how Colon, who turns 41 Saturday, needs to use his off-speed pitches more to be effective. He started out Hill with a slider then threw him four straight two-seamers. Colon has had an up and down start to his first year in New York. He gave up two runs in eight innings in his previous start, a win over Washington, but yielded seven runs in 5 2-3 innings against the Yankees five days earlier. He entered 3-5 with a 5.34 ERA. Anderson gave up a two-out single to David Wright in the first and walked former Diamondbacks outfielder Chris Young leading off the second. Wilmer Flores grounded into a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning and Anderson was perfect in the third. "I felt like I was starting to roll after that third inning," Anderson said. "If we went to the fourth, fifth, I felt pretty good." NOTES: Mets C Travis dArnaud (concussion) took BP on the field. His next step before getting MLB doctors approval is catching a bullpen session. When he is finally cleared to play in games, Collins thinks dArnaud will need 8-10 rehab at-bats. ... Diamondbacks RHP J.J. Putz (forearm strain) has been playing long toss and is nearing a bullpen session, Gibson says there is no timetable yet for his return. ... Gibson was watching on a TV in his office his son Cam play in the Big Ten baseball tournament. Cam had four hits in a win over Illinois. ...

          Why Is The Government Buying Dead And Dying Malls?       Cache   Translate Page      

For the past year, we've covered the epic collapse of shopping malls - the crowning achievement of the 1980's retail model - with mall vacancies hitting a six-year high in July. 

Once vacant - or nearly vacant, these once-vibrant malls have become a blight on local communities across the country - driving down nearby property values as we're reminded why Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is the richest man on the planet. 

The solution? Local municipalities are using land banks; government-backed or quasi-public entities typically used to buy derelict homes, to snap up the dead malls, reports the Wall Street Journal

“As we recovered from the recession, the market has reabsorbed some properties but not in the smaller communities that never recovered,” said Frank Alexander, co-founder and senior adviser of the Center for Community Progress, which promotes land banks. “In those places, we’re getting more questions about how to deal with abandoned shopping centers.” -WSJ

In May, the Springfield, Ohio Clark County Land Reutilization Corp bought the Upper Valley Mall for $3 million, after J.C. Penny and Macy's closed their stores in 2015, while other stores such as Sears and Foot Locker have continued to operate. 

“Nothing was being done in our opinion,” said Thomas Hale, Clark County land bank executive director. “This is just one project we felt we had to protect.” 

Hale says he's in talks with potential investors to redevelop the mall into a mixed-use site which would include housing, a soccer field and a smaller retail presence

In other instances, governments opt to get rid of retail entirely. The City of Memphis purchased Raleigh Springs Mall and demolished it last year to build a new community center. The $28 million Raleigh Town Center, which will have a library, police and traffic precinct, an 11-acre lake and a skate park, is slated to be completed June 2019. -WSJ

And while malls in rich neighborhoods are doing just fine, growing government involvement with shopping centers in poorer areas is yet another sign that private investors may be losing interest in the vacant properties, even at fire-sale prices. 

“It’s a new issue,” said Thomas Dobrowski, executive managing director of capital markets at Newmark Knight Frank - a real-estate services firm. “When a mall gets to a point of no return and when no private buyer is willing to reinvest in it, it comes down to the value of the dirt.”

That said, it's not always easy for governments to snap up the dead and dying properties - as malls have giant footprints which make it tough to propose alternate uses. 

For big boxes in particular, there are limited uses of that space,” said Michele Wildman, executive director at Genesee County Land Bank, which is currently listing 58 commercial properties for sale - including a 101,900 sqft former Kmart store. The lack of windows and giant footprint have made it difficult to do much with it. 

Redevelopment plans can also lose traction if city council members and residents can't agree on proposed new uses, while multiple owners and multiple buyers can hinder deals as well. 

That said, many municipalities have forged ahead with their plans; 

The petition sped up negotiations for a deal between the remaining owner and the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, which had been acquiring pieces of the mall since 2015. The development board bought the final piece eventually. It is now in talks with a developer who has plans to demolish the current building and develop a logistics center there. -WSJ

“I’m hoping we can move it along for the community,” said Sheila Sweeney, chief executive officer at St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. “People really want something to happen, but right now it’s sitting there decaying.

Police in Sanford, Florida, arrested a man for allegedly trying to kill his boss two hours after he was fired. The manager told police that Djuan Lewis, 23, chased him from Benada Aluminum Products on Jewett Lane and started firing into his car. A different manager told WFTV that Lewis had only worked there Thursday and was fired Sunday morning for throwing supplies and tools on the ground. Lewis was fired, then waited for his district supervisor outside for two hours, the manager said. Investigators said Lewis then chased the manager and his girlfriend for a mile and a half. The girlfriend told police she heard about five shots. The arrest report states bullet holes were found in the rear bumper, trunk door and right rear tire of the manager's car. The manager and his girlfriend were not hurt. Lewis was later arrested at his home. According to Seminole County court records, Lewis had several drug and theft charges since 2014. Lewis is being held on $46,000 bond. https://www.fox13memphis.com/news/trending-now/florida-man-hired-thursday-fired-sunday-tries-to-kill-boss-2-hours-later-police-say/827435852?utm_source=taboolafeed
          Comment on The magic pill for depression: It doesn’t exist. by ron davis      Cache   Translate Page      
Hi Joe, you may not remember me; my wife Linda and I were members of FBC Columbus MS from 1978 - 1980 while stationed at CAFB. I WELL remember your teachings and I still cherish my notes from your sermons. After flying in the Air Force for 8 years, I was hired by FedEx and flew for them for 23 years; flew that is until I had a bout of Atrial Fibriallation on a flight from Cologne Germany to Memphis TN. That began my slow downward spiral into the pit of hell, depression. I became suicidal and if it weren't for God's word, a loving wife (Linda) and a Godly Psychiatrist and counselor, I would not be alive today. All that to say that Psalm 40:2-3 is true.... "He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud a mire, He sat my feet on a solid rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth; a hymn of praise to our God." I am now 63 years old and I can say with out reservation that I am GLAD and even rejoicing that God orchestrated the events that led to my full blown (even suicidal) depression. Like you, God has created in me an empathy for those who are hurting, to be a "Grace Extender and provider" and most of all, to bear each other's burdens. Joe, l fondly remember how you led our son Chris to the Lord at FBC, Columbus and I will forever more be grateful. Thank you for how you serve HIM!

          Back to School #1: Thought-provoking articles about K-12 education issues      Cache   Translate Page      
1. Last year, the New York Times Magazine ran two particularly searing articles about K-12 education issues.  Segregated schooling increasing in the South. "The Resegregation of Jefferson County."

Relatedly, the Memphis mayor's stratagem a few years back of merging the city's schools into the better funded county system ("Memphis Makes the Nation's Most Ambitious Effort to Fix Failed Schools," Governing Magazine) has backfired as communities in the suburban county are de-merging from the countywide public system ("Memphis-Shelby County spotlighted in national report on school district secession," ChalkBeat).

2.  The s***show of charter school oversight and creation in the State of Michigan, courtesy of Betsy DeVos, now US Secretary of Education.  The article is astounding.  Way worse than DC, where the public charter school board is independent of public oversight and schools are not required to consider demand before being created.

-- "Michigan Gambled on Charter Schools. Its Children Lost."

I am sure glad I am not in Michigan now, although I'm sure that the traditional school districts that were already high quality remain so.

3. Singapore and education best practicesThe Economist has an editorial about the success of schooling there.  A lot comes down to investment in teachers and teaching, including relatively high salaries.  There are larger class sizes than is typical in the US, but as the article says, is it better for a small class to be taught by a poorly qualified teacher, or for a student to be in a larger class taught by an excellent teacher.

-- "What other countries can learn from Singapore's schools"
-- "It has the world's best schools, but Singapore wants wants better"

The article also has some important things to say about the adoption of best practices.

4.  NYT Magazine back to school issue.  Sunday's NYT Magazine's article section focused on the schools, including:

-- "Can Good Teaching Be Taught"
-- "Teaching in the Age of School Shootings"
-- "What Teachers Are Doing to Pay Their Bills"
-- "Arizona Lawmakers Cut Education Budgets. Then Teachers Got Angry"

5.  Teacher diversity and student achievement.  Yesterday's NYT has an article, "Does Your Teacher's Identity Affect Your Learning?," discussing findings that non-white children do better in classes taught by people of the same ethnicity and race.

6. The Constitutional Right of Children to a Quality Education. A great article in the New Yorker discussing various legal holdings on this, touched off by the recent publication of The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American Mind.

-- "Is Education a Fundamental Right?"

Studio: Taylor Marketing & All-Star Wrestling
The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Featured here are a few of the Big Time Wrestling moments with the wisdom of Veteran mic man Chuck Allen and his partner Terry Sullivan filling us in on the action and shows coming up and the latest news. But the bonus here is the Memphis match that features the silver tongue, Lance Russell. Russell was like a good friend telling you always what was on his mind. The guys on the "stick" were a huge part of thousands of Wrestling fans on Saturday morning and the golden era of the 70s.

          DOZA DE CULTURĂ: "Aida"      Cache   Translate Page      
"Aida" este o operă în patru acte, muzica aparţinându-i compozitorului italian Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) iar libretul scriitorului italian Antonio Ghislanzoni (1824-1893), potrivit http://operanb.ro. Acţiunea se petrece în Egiptul antic, fără a fi indicată o perioadă precisă de timp. Tânărul general Radames este desemnat de Regele Egiptului să lupte împotriva armatei etiopienilor. Chiar dacă şi-a dorit această cinste, lucrurile sunt complicate pentru Radames. Îndrăgostit de prinţesa etiopienă Aida, sclavă la curtea din Memphis, el acum va trebui să lupte împotriva poporului ei. Un alt personaj important este Amneris, fiica faraonului, amorezată de Radames şi geloasă pe Aida. Deznodământul operei este unul tragic, menit să sublinieze puterea erosului chiar şi când acesta este contrastat cu gloria şi puterea sociale. Premiera operei "Aida" a avut loc la 24 decembrie 1871, la inaugurarea Operei din Cairo. În Europa, "Aida" a fost interpretată pentru prima dată la opera La Scala din Milano, în ziua de 8 februarie 1872. Spectacolul "Aida" face parte din stagiunea 2018-2019 a Operei Naţionale din Bucureşti, regia fiind semnată de Plamen Kartalov, cu Lăcrimioara Cristescu în rolul Aidei şi cu Mikheil Sheshaberidze în rolul lui Radames.

Van Turner creates a new role for Councilman/Commissioner Ed Ford; Bredesen vs. Blackburn ad war under way.

So, okay, the newly elected version of the Shelby County Commission began the process of reorganizing itself  on Monday, keeping some of the body's traditions and abandoning others — managing to be somewhat surprising, either way.

The man of the day was Van Turner, who became the new commission chairman. There was no surprise there — except maybe to those who expected one erstwhile custom — that of automatic promotion to the chairmanship of the previously serving vice chair. That would be Willie Brooks, like Turner a second-termer, who was at least expected to serve as acting chairman for the chairmanship vote.

But when clerk Rosalind Nichols undertook to assist the commission, eight of whose 13 members are brand-new, by explaining the bylaws for the reorganization, she specified that two votes would be held. And when nominations were invited for the first of those, for acting chair, the new commissioner from District 1, Amber Mills, had first dibs and nominated Turner.

Turner, as it happens, had written to each commissioner, expressing his wish to be chairman, and Mills, understandably, may have become confused as to the order of things. In any case, Turner was elected acting chair in a lopsided vote over Brooks and presided over the vote for permanent chair, winning that by acclamation.

Another returning commissioner, Reginald Milton, a Democrat like Turner and Brooks, had aspired to be vice chair and had done some proselytizing to that effect, stressing that it was time to discard the commission's vintage habit of alternating power positions between Democrats and Republicans. Simultaneously, returning GOP Commissioner Mark Billingsley had dispatched a letter to his fellow commissioners making the contrary case.

When it came time to vote, not only did the four new GOP members vote his way, so did most of the Democrats. Final vote: 9-3 for Billingsley.

There was more to the votes for chair and vice chair than honorifics. Turner had managed to establish what had long been forecast to be his ultimate preeminence on the commission, and Billingsley had maintained at least the semblance of bipartisan sharing, as well as his own viability.

There was one more decisive act on Monday, and, appropriately, it came from Turner, who announced to all and sundry that he would be appointing a task force to maintain liaison with the Memphis City Council and would construct it around the person of newly elected Commissioner Edmund Ford Jr., who, after his election to the commission on August 2nd, continues to serve on the City Council, along with two other Council members — Bill Morrison and Janis Fullilove — who were also elected to county positions and remain on the council.

By keeping up their council identity, which by statute they can do until 90 days after their election to new office — November 2nd, in this case — the three departing council members will negate the organized efforts of various activists to call for a special election in November to replace them, thereby allowing their successors to be chosen by the remaining council members in an appointment process for which the current council has become notorious.

At least where Ford is concerned, Turner's action in effect provides cover for the process. In announcing his task-force plans, the new commission chair touted Ford's dual service as an opportunity to "utilize the fact that he's also a city councilman for these waning months" and "allow us to see what's going on in the city from the county perspective." Among the issues to be examined in this way by Ford and whoever else ends up on the task force are MATA and health care, two areas of city/county joint concern.

Asked about this de facto seal of approval (which, to be fair, could also be seen as a simple acknowledgement of reality), Commissioner/Councilman Ford denied outright that there was any "controversy" involved in his continuing to serve in two different elected bodies.

"The people in my district don't care," the commissioner from District 9 insisted, speaking of a forthcoming "meeting" that evening involving the constituents of Council District 6. • Several members of the commission, along with other local elected officials, took part on Saturday in the annual Orange Mound Parade through that centrally located African-American Memphis neighborhood. Among those taking part was Phil Bredesen, the former two-term Tennessee governor, now running for the U.S. Senate as the Democratic nominee. Bredesen's Memphis schedule on Saturday also included a luncheon appearance in Germantown with the "Women United for Bredesen" group and a planned participation in the Southern Heritage Classic Tailgate, which ran into bad weather.

All the events served as a sort of run-up to another Bredesen appearance this Thursday night. Currently billed as a "'Memphis Matters' Ideas Forum" at Rhodes College, it is what remains of what was originally intended by the sponsors (including Rhodes, WMC-TV, and the USA Today newspaper chain) to be one of four statewide televised debates between Bredesen and the Republican Senate candidate, 7th District U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn.

For whatever reason, Blackburn demurred at the idea of a debate at Rhodes, and the Bredesen campaign has been making the most of that decision, sending out press release after release accusing the GOP candidate of ducking a joint encounter in Memphis and playing up the newly configured Ideas Forum as a vehicle for their candidate to hold up his end on the matter.

At press time, Blackburn could not be reached on the matter of the aborted Memphis debate. Although two subsequent debates have since been arranged between the Senate candidates for Nashville and Knoxville, the only exchanges between the two candidates thus far have occurred via TV ads.

Blackburn currently has two attack ads running, one featuring President Trump endorsing her and bad-mouthing Bredesen and another accusing the former governor of favoring additional taxes and of gussying up the governor's mansion at taxpayer expense. Both claims are somewhat off the mark. As Bredesen maintained in a response ad, he did not raise taxes, and, while the governor's mansion was renovated during his tenure, he and his wife did not live there, remaining instead in their Nashville residence.

While most of his TV commercials to date have featured Bredesen sounding soft-spoken and willing to work across the partisan aisle, at least one ad on his behalf has appeared of late accusing Blackburn of excessive travel and other high-living habits on the taxpayers' dime.


          A Memphis State of Mind: Men's Fall Fashion      Cache   Translate Page      
A local perspective on men’s style.

For a certain type of guy, having good style is more than wearing what's trendy. It is a state of mind. It means being impeccably groomed, so as to give him the confidence boost to move forward in any way. Because when you feel better, you look better. As we say cheers to September (fashion month), here's the perspective of some cool and creative guys in Memphis on personal style, grooming, and fashion.

Stephen - @Iam_the1ndonly

My perspective on style in general is a very simple one and one that I take from fashion designer Tom Ford: "Dressing well is a form of good manners." I keep that approach daily while preparing for my day. Yes, I want to look professional and respectable for my clients, so when I put on one of my suits every morning, I do not take the approach as if it is a uniform, but more a symbol/statement of who I am as a person. I let it reflect my personality.

Here in Memphis, we aren't known as a trendy or fashion-forward city like L.A., New York, Atlanta, or Miami. We are such a blue-collar city. I was able to grow up watching my father dress in a suit, and I realized that I, too, wanted that for myself. Fashion is constantly growing, changing, reinventing, and repeating itself — from the suspenders back in the old speakeasy days to the stockbrokers of the '80s, and from the wide-peak-lapel blazers in the '60s being born again in the '90s and 2000s. But one thing will remain the same ... it's always your personality!

Ziggy @fomoloop

Grooming, in general, influences personal style by subconsciously adding a shot of confidence to the man. It's similar to home and garden upkeep. You have more pride in something when you've taken the time to tend, grow, and maintain it.

Gonzo @gone_zo

I've only lived in Memphis for a year and I love it! I relish knowing that Memphians push the status quo (the herd look) and proudly express their individuality through a variety of unique styles. It's seriously appreciated here. Drive three hours out east (Nashville, I'm talking to you), and everybody starts to look the same. If you dare to deviate from the herd, you're shunned for standing out!

Eso @coolurbanhippie

Fashion is more open than it ever has been for men. There used to be a lot of rules. Now, anything goes! Right now, it's less about fashion and more about style. Style is very personal. The climate is perfect for showcasing your personal style and expression, whatever it may be.

          Drawing Conclusions      Cache   Translate Page      

You've seen Greg Cravens' work on the cover of this paper and most weeks on the Flyer's editorial page. But, Cravens admits, the times when Jim Davis made bank with "Garfield" in the daily newspapers are over.

Now is a time to grab at whatever opportunities present themselves. Thinking about starting a web comic? Give it a shot, just have your ideas in place first.

These are just some of the things Cravens will cover in his cartooning class this Sunday at Novel bookstore.

He says when he first heard that Novel was opening, he called them about placing his own books in the store. This discussion led to some brainstorming of how they could work together, hence the class, which is open to all ages.

According to Cravens, all kids love to draw, but it's their parents who may be the true comics geeks. Cravens, himself, is a Mad magazine connoisseur and a "Peanuts" fan from way back.

Cravens says he often has to break students of what cartooning is, that it's more than just boxes and talk balloons. He often will start them off with a circle, two dots, and a line — in other words, a smiley face. He'll ask them what that image is conveying. Happiness, they'll say. This leads to a discussion of why this is and emotional content.

"Cartooning is not about drawing," he says. "It's more about communicating."


          Spreading Their Wings      Cache   Translate Page      

New Wing Order held a preview tasting way back in March. The wing-centric food truck debuted in Cordova and Downtown last weekend. It's holding similar opening events in Midtown and Germantown this weekend.

The reasoning for the way, way-ahead tasting was that owners Cole Forrest and Jesse McDonald didn't want to be testing new recipes at the last minute. They wanted everything field-tested and perfected. Some suggestions they took to heart: They turned up the heat on the honey hot wings and tweaked the herbs on the Rajun Cajun. They also changed the menu to denote how truly hot the wings can be. One thing they didn't touch was their famous Memphis Buffalo wings — their pride and joy and the wing that helped them nab the championship at the Memphis Hot Wings Festival.

As they puzzled over where to launch, it occurred to them that the wheels gave them opportunity to be anywhere they chose. "It's the whole benefit of having a food truck — it comes to you," says Forrest.

It's no mistake that all four openings are at places with easy access to beer. "Nothing goes better than beer and hot wings," Forrest says.

In any case, they are ready to go, ready to spread their wings. "We just want to get out there," says Forrest.

New Wing Order plans on donating one percent of annual profits to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.


          Now open: Low Fi Coffee and Cafe SereniTea      Cache   Translate Page      
Now open: Low Fi Coffee and Cafe SereniTea.

Bailey Biggers and David Pender of Low Fi Coffee met while working at a coffee shop in California. Both had been hired for their love of the brew and their decided lack of training. The pair eventually moved to Fort Worth, Texas. Then, Pender took a gig in North Carolina. Biggers and Pender would meet in Memphis, the half-way point, to spend time together. (Aw!)

Something about Memphis felt right to them. Pender recalls asking Biggers, "You feel that?" of the city. She did. They decided to move here. "It picked us," says Biggers.

They then launched Low Fi through a series of pop-ups, first at Bozwell & Lily and then at the Brooks Museum. They've since set up shop at Stock & Belle, the South Main clothing/art/furniture store Downtown on South Main. They are currently transitioning from pop-up to permanent within the store.

Low Fi's approach is in their name. "It's our philosophy," says Pender, "simple instruments and ingredients." What that means is that they take care to source their beans and they eschew sweeteners. They both feel that sugars and milks are used to make bad coffee taste good. A well-brewed cup of coffee doesn't need it. They also let the bean dictate the brew method. Sometimes that's a machine; other times, it's pour-over.

Part of their what-you-see-is-what-you-get approach is that they don't add tax to their prices. So, a $5 cup of coffee is $5. (Though they do add tax to their retail items.) And, if you buy a bag of coffee, you get a complimentary cup of coffee.

Low Fi offers three black coffees (espresso, pour over, and cold brew); three coffees with milk (latte, cappuccino, gibraltar); a number of teas; and novelty drinks, including a matcha cappuccino and a cold brew iced coffee. They are currently selling Hi Fi cookies, a business out of Nashville, run by a couple just like themselves.

Biggers and Pender are planning to restructure and remodel the space to make it more of an actual coffee shop. They want to expand their retail offerings — more branded stuff as well as grab-and-go items.

Pender says they've gathered a few regulars so far. Some have kept a habit from when Stock & Belle served coffee. They say, "Dealer's choice," and then they try to guess what they've been served.

"Coffee deserves respect," says Pender.

Jamila Cooper says that she never drank tea, but one day, it occurred to her that peace and serenity would make a pretty great name for a tea house. So, she opened Cafe SereniTea in a cozy little house at 3545 South Third last November.

There's not much to it. A small counter space and some seating in a front room. This is all about the teas. She offers hot teas such as zesty lemon ginger, invigorating peppermint, relaxing chamomile, and classic green teas. Her iced teas are honey mint green, jasmine ginger, and strawberry lime black.

SereniTea also offers a small selection of vegetarian sandwiches, pastries, and brunch items on the weekend. They also have coffee.

Cooper cops to having a Pepsi addiction, which naturally led to harder stuff — Doritos. She kicked the habit by drinking detox teas. "It took away the cravings," she says. The tea, with tumeric, anise, fennel, and ginger, helped her lose 27 pounds, she says.

You can buy teas at the cafe to take home to brew for yourself, or you can buy them online at cafeserenitea.com.

Cooper says that, while she didn't drink much tea before, she used her background as a teacher and a mathematician to figure out the blends.

She says Cafe SereniTea is a nice place to hang out, where no one is in a hurry. "Every day, someone new comes in," Cooper says.

Cafe SereniTea is open Sunday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

          The Nun      Cache   Translate Page      
The latest installment in The Conjuring series is the pumpkin spice latte of horror movies

It seems like pumpkin spice season comes earlier every year, doesn't it? I know everyone's eager to get to October, or just ready for the heat to end. But that doesn't mean we have to skip straight to hanging the fake cobwebs after Labor Day.

Horror movies of questionable quality are my pumpkin spice latte, but I'm not going to be in the mood for a Hammer binge until at least October 1st, and certainly not before the Cooper-Young Festival. But, keeping with the late-stage capitalist trend of constantly reinforced yet bloodless revelry, The Nun has appeared in theaters the first week of September and made $131 million dollars.

On the one hand, The Nun is a charmingly old-fashioned crappy horror movie. It's the fifth film in a series that began with The Conjuring in 2013. These movies have been loosely based on the work of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, whose accounts of hauntings have been loosely based on truth since the 1970s. Instead of going for a relatable suburban setting like The Amityville Horror (a story the Warrens have been able to sell an improbable number of times), The Nun moves the action to 1952 Romania. It starts with a bang, as two nuns in a Transylvanian castle run frightened through a darkened hallway that ends in a door marked with the grammatically challenged threat "God ends here." One of them uses an ornate key to open the door and retrieve a holy relic, which she says is the only thing that will save them. Predictably, her errand to the basement of godlessness proves fatal, and her partner runs up to her third floor bedroom and flings herself out the window with a noose around her neck.

The gruesome suicide of a nun attracts the attention of the Vatican. Why would a bride of Christ commit the ultimate unpardonable sin? And what gives with this creepy abbey where they've been praying constantly for the last 500 years? But the red hats in Rome are apparently too busy covering up child sexual abuse to go see for themselves, so they send in Father Burke (Demián Bichir), who is apparently some kind of kick ass combat priest. For no discernible reason, he is assigned Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) as a partner. Sister Irene is not quite yet a nun, and she's never been to Transylvania, but she is a teacher at an orphanage in London who had some visions of Mary once, so the old priests figure, what the hell?

The pair travel to Romania where they meet their guide Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet), who leads them to the abbey with his questionable accent. Everything about the setting is an old school Universal horror cliche. There are the villagers who are scared to silence about the mysterious goings on in the castle, and the horses who won't enter the perpetually fogged forest, so you have to go in on foot.

Plot-wise, The Nun is a lukewarm rehashing of John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness. The nuns of the abbey, some of whom may be ghosts themselves, must keep a malevelant spirit named Valak the Defiler trapped in their basement. There's definitely a feeling of paint by numbers from director Corin Hardy and writer Gary Dauberman. That doesn't have to be a bad thing, as long as the execution is up to snuff.

Unfortunately, that is not the case with The Nun, a picture that never met a cheap jump scare it didn't cop. Neither Bichir nor Bloquet look like they have any idea what's going on at any given time, and it's obvious that English is not a first language for either one of them.

I will give Father Burke some credit. The first time I was buried alive by invisible demons, I'd be hopping the train back to Rome, but he keeps going like nothing ever happened. Whether that's a sign of bravery or lack of ability on the actor's part, I'll leave as an exercise to the viewer. Even if you're ready to kick off horror season a few weeks early, there are lots of opportunities to do better than this tedious nun-sense.

Dammit, Gannett

The Commercial Appeal soldiers on.

Though greatly diminished, the Gannett-owned daily newspaper has hired a clutch of new reporters to replace all the institutional memory and talent lost to digital startup, The Daily Memphian.

But non-local layout and non-existent copy editing persists. So, there's no shortage of bizarre typos. A report on Tropical Storm Gordon shared news out of Destub, Florida, which is kinda like Destin, but shorter.

Finally, as all the local department stores break out their Halloween displays, here's a terrifying social media share about an "active shooter" who shot multiple people "Downtown."

Careful readers will recognize The Enquirer and recognize that this drama's unfolding in Cincinnati. But that's a lot to ask of a headline-responsive internet culture, and nobody wants to be the little paper that cried "active shooter!"


          Historic Troubles      Cache   Translate Page      
Report alleges lack of training, oversight at Tennessee Historical Commission.

A new report found some big problems with the Tennessee Historical Commission (THC), the group that tried but failed to block Memphis from removing statues of slave owners.

An August audit by the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury's office found that THC members lack the legal training to properly administer the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act (THPA), the law they tried to use to block the removal of the statues.

The report said another state agency left the THC with no formal way to communicate with the media during the turbulent Memphis statue-removal process. Also, the report says THC lacks proper oversight of 14 historic sites that are in the group's care.

The THC is "administratively attached" to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). While some commissioners informally asked for the assistance of TDEC lawyers through the Memphis statue-removal process, the THC failed to formally ask for the department's help, the report says.

"Without the services provided by [TDEC's] Office of General Counsel, the commission would not be able to fulfill its duties under the Heritage Protection Act," according to the audit.

New commissioners are given an introductory handbook, the audit says, which has a section about the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act. But that's about it.

"However, commission staff stated that they do not have the legal expertise to give commissioners training on legal aspects of the waiver process," reads the report.

For this, the comptroller recommends formal training for all THC members.

"Members should have some training on legal aspects of their actions, as well as opportunities to ask questions about processes that are unfamiliar to them," reads the audit.

Part of the problem, according to the report, is that THC and TDEC have no formal contract to bind them. The last agreement was signed in 1987. So, THC has no standing to demand help from the department, according to the audit. This became important during the Memphis statue-removal process.

"In recent months, the commission experienced increased media attention as a result of the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act," reads the audit. "Simultaneously, [TDEC] management decided to stop providing the commission communication services, including press releases, and media handling in 2017."

The groups are working on a new, formal contract and TDEC has committed three attorneys to the THC.

Historical sites

THC contracts oversight of some historical sites to various nonprofits organizations.

The audit found none of the organizations have disaster plans for their sites. Only five of them could show proof of insurance. Only half of them have inventory lists of historic artifacts. Some that do have such lists are out of date.

"Specifically, we found that one inventory list was dated 1986 without indication of a more current list," reads the audit. "In another case, we could not determine whether the inventory list was current as it was missing the date altogether."

Without such lists, "the historic site operators do not know what they have and would not know if an item was lost."


          Go Redbirds! Boo, Grizzlies!      Cache   Translate Page      

After a pair of heart-stopping comeback wins last weekend, the Memphis Redbirds advanced to the Pacific Coast League (PCL) championship series for a second straight season where they'll defend their title against the Triple-A affiliate of the world champion Houston Astros, the Fresno Grizzlies. Battling Mother Nature in both Oklahoma City (where they split the first two games of the best-of-five semifinal series) and Memphis, the Redbirds beat a hot Dodger team in four games, the last two in walk-off fashion.

In Game 3 Friday night, Alex Mejia, Lane Thomas, and Max Schrock delivered consecutive RBI singles in the bottom of the ninth inning to erase a 4-2 Oklahoma City lead and give Memphis a 2-1 series advantage. But that comeback served merely as prelude to Sunday's epic Game 4.

The Redbirds tied Sunday's game at a run apiece in the bottom of the seventh inning on a sacrifice fly by Tommy Edman. (The game had been scheduled for seven innings, as Game 5 would have followed had the Dodgers won.) Oklahoma City took a two-run lead in the top of the 10th inning on a home run by Henry Ramos. But the Redbirds rallied again, this time tying the score at 3 on a two-out, two-strike single by Alex Mejia. Then, things got a little weird.

Edman reached second after drilling the ball off the Dodgers' first baseman, putting Redbirds at second and third. Oklahoma City manager Bill Haselman then seemed to corner Redbirds manager Stubby Clapp by walking Schrock. Out of position players on his bench, Clapp was forced to let relief pitcher Giovanny Gallegos bat with the winning run 90 feet away. Gallegos had exactly one at-bat in his seven-year professional career.

Gallegos clubbed the baseball over the leftfielder's head for a series-clinching walkoff victory. Such is Redbirds baseball in what can now be called the Stubby Clapp era. Pieces of a good team are removed. Others arrive, suit up, and impact victories.

The 2018 Redbirds, for a time, had the finest outfield in the minor leagues: Tyler O'Neill, Oscar Mercado, and Adolis García. Mercado was traded in late July and O'Neill and García are now helping the St. Louis Cardinals fight for a big-league playoff spot.

In April, Memphis had what appeared to be an electric rotation of starting pitchers: Jack Flaherty, Austin Gomber, John Gant, Daniel Poncedeleon, and Dakota Hudson. Hudson won 13 games for the Redbirds and earned PCL Pitcher of the Year honors. But all five men are now pitching for the Cardinals, leaving the likes of Jake Woodford, former Cardinal Tyler Lyons, and Kevin Herget to take turns in the PCL playoffs.

And take their turns they will, now three games from back-to-back championships for a man — already a back-to-back PCL Manager of the Year — who may be on to new ventures next spring. When the Toronto Blue Jays announced last week that manager John Gibbons will not return in 2019, Clapp's name instantly became an offseason talking point. (Clapp is a native of Windsor, Ontario.) Would a major-league team hire a manager with no experience in such a role at the game's highest level? Check out the managers' offices at Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park as the Yankees and Red Sox prepare for this year's postseason.

For at least three more games, though, Stubby Clapp will command the Memphis Redbirds. (The championship series opens Tuesday night in Fresno, with Games 3 through 5 scheduled for AutoZone Park, starting Friday night.) You can bet against the Redbirds at your wallet's peril. Clapp has emphasized "never say die" for two seasons now as a Triple-A manager. When relief pitchers are drilling series-winning hits to the wall, perhaps it's time we all believe in the mantra.


          Star & Micey Celebrate 10 Years      Cache   Translate Page      

The members of Memphis folk-pop band Star & Micey radiate a solidarity that calls to mind a Southern Fab Four-era Beatles, an impression that was driven home for me when I met Josh Cosby and Nick Redmond, the main songwriting duo, for coffee. The two look like an odd couple, the scholar and the handyman, but they field interview questions like an Olympic volleyball team. Cosby sets up a joke, and Redmond spikes it, or vice versa, again and again, putting proof to the fact that the two have spent a decade leaning on and learning from each other on stages and in the studio.

All that hard work pays off, as this month, Star & Micey celebrate 10 years as a band, a mile marker few groups ever reach. The festivities kicked off two weeks ago with an anniversary show at Railgarten, and continue this weekend at the Levitt Shell with a long-awaited co-headlining concert with Memphis indie-pop heavyweights Snowglobe.

"Jeff Hulett from Snowglobe is my neighbor," Cosby says. "We've been throwing it around: 'When are Snowglobe and Star & Micey going to play together?'"

The 10-year mark represents an unusual time in the life of Star & Micey. Having recently amiably ended a near-decade-long contract with Ardent, the band is in uncharted territory. Cosby and Redmond seem happy, open to the possibility of a new direction and pleased with a summer bookended by a spot on the Beale Street Music Fest lineup and a hometown blowout show at the Shell. But after six-and-a-half years of near-constant touring and almost a full decade with the same label, the band is taking stock. "For the first time in 10 years," Redmond says, "we're 100 percent free agents — and with a stack of material."

But let's back up. Redmond was already working at the famed Ardent Studios when Cosby and bassist Geoff Smith welcomed him into the band, so it was natural that they wound up at the Memphis label when the time came to sign a deal.

Star & Micey toured, released an EP and a full-length with Ardent, learned to play drums with their feet, toured some more, and added a drummer, Jeremy Stanfill. Their shows became more extravagant. "It was crazy. There was confetti; there were back flips," Cosby says. They released a third record, Get 'Em Next Time, in collaboration with Ardent and Thirty Tigers (who handled distribution), made a few laps around the U.S. and Canada, and went back to stomping their feet for a while. "In the meantime, we had recorded five records that just sat on the shelf," Redmond says.

"Contractually, we had to stay," Redmond says of the label entanglements that left them tied to the studio but unable to release their newest recordings. And after the deaths in 2014 of Ardent founder John Fry and John Hampton, one of the studio's chief producers, there was no one to let the band go. "I don't think there's blame," Redmond says. "We got lost in the cracks."

Meanwhile, over at Thirty Tigers, the death of vice president and co-founder Bob Goldstone sent the company into a period of drastic change. Star & Micey was locked into a deal with Ardent with no one to handle distribution. Eventually, after years in a sort of limbo, the contract was dissolved.

Now it's back to the band's origins. "I jumped in the van, and we took off — for 10 years," Redmond laughs. Those first tours built the band's chops and taught them how to depend on each other, how to survive long days in a van, and how to roll with the punches.

"If something happens, we'll all show up," Redmond says, demonstrating the Get 'Em Next Time ethos that so defines the band. "We've all decided, all four of us, this isn't over," Cosby says, putting words to a feeling that permeated the conversation from start to finish. Never for a moment did I doubt that, even after 10 years, Star & Micey have a lot more to give.

Star & Micey and Snowglobe play the Levitt Shell, Friday, September 14th, 7 p.m. Free.


          Desert Drinking      Cache   Translate Page      
A trip to New Mexico offers fresh spirits.

I am writing this week's Spirits column from a balcony overlooking Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is my first "real" vacation in two years (trips to the Gulf Coast to see my mom, to New Orleans or Nashville, or that 24 hours I spent in Harlem last spring hardly count), and m-a-a-a-n am I enjoying it. Within an hour of my arrival at the fabulously laidback Hotel Chaco, I was seated at Level 5, the rooftop restaurant, where I sipped on a cocktail while watching the sun set over the Sandia Mountains.

My first drink was Hotel Chaco's variation on the gin and tonic, called the Botanist. Zippy and peppy, their recipe included pepper, thyme, preserved lemon, and house-made kombucha. I drank it with zest.

With dinner, I drank the beautiful pink-hued Hummingbird, a sweet, fruity Patron tequila-based drink that included lime, agave, damiana, and hibiscus. I had to google damiana to find out what I was drinking — turns out that it's a native woody shrub that was used to make many patent medicines in the 19th century, including Pemberton's French Wine Coca, a drugstore brew concocted by the creator of Coca-Cola. Mexican distillers still use leaves from the bush to make a traditional liqueur, while herbalists make tinctures and teas that are seen as either relaxants or stimulants. Let's just say that I felt both energized and chilled out afterward.

At breakfast the next day, I splurged on a Bloody Mary, which, as it turned out, was worth every penny of the $10 I paid for it. The drink was as spicy as I expected, being in the Southwest, but it came with an added bonus: In addition to the requisite celery stalk and olive garnish, two strips of perfectly fried smoked bacon lay crossed atop the glass. I don't know how the locals do it, but I dipped my bacon into the vodka-tomato juice mix and ate it, then slurped down the drink.

Later, I strolled through the aforementioned Old Town, the historic center of Albuquerque, founded in 1706. I wound up stopping for lunch at Backstreet Grill, which had seven beers I've never heard of on tap. I wish I could say I tried all of them, but I'm just one person — and I already felt a little lightheaded from the altitude.

I did sample the Bosque Lager, a Pilsner-style beer with 4.8 percent ABV that was brewed just a few miles from my lunch spot, at a brewery on San Mateo Boulevard. I also drank a glass of a slightly lighter beer, the 4.3 percent ABV Body Czech Bohemian Pilsner from Boxing Bear, another craft brewery located in Albuquerque.

Unfortunately, I had to bypass samples from other local brewers like the Boese Brothers, La Cumbre, and Steel Bender. Back at my hotel, I did some online searching, and it turns out that Albuquerque has a robust beer scene, with 23 breweries active within the city limits. Marble Brewery, big contenders in the World Beer Cup, are on my short list to try before I fly home to Memphis.

Next, I'm heading to the desert, where I'm spending two days far from any luxuries, including bars, refrigerators, corkscrews, and taps. When I return to civilization, I plan to hit up Garduño's at Old Town, a 40-year-old restaurant and cantina located inside the venerable Hotel Albuquerque. Monday night is margarita night at Garduño's, and they have no less than 16 varieties on the menu. The restaurant served as a location for a pivotal scene in season five of Breaking Bad — it's where Walter and Skyler White met up with Hank Shrader and his wife (and Skyler's sister) Marie after Shrader discovered that Walter White was indeed the meth-making Heisenberg. Things didn't go well for anyone sitting at that table, but then again, Walt didn't stick around for a margarita.

I'll try just one, then head to Left Turn Distilling, the distillery behind La Luz Vodka, Rojo Piñon Rum, Brothers Old Tom Gin, and NM Blue Corn Whiskey, a twist on corn whiskey that is made with New Mexican water and locally sourced and ground blue corn. While Left Turn also has a happy hour on Mondays, I'll buy my drinks for the road — or for the plane flight home. Local spirits, after all, make the best souvenirs.


          Breakfast on Beale?      Cache   Translate Page      

Beale Street is unique. That isn't rose-tinted boosterism or uncultured naivete, it's true. Exempt from both city and state open-container laws, Beale Street is part of a special coterie of places where folks can openly booze it up in the middle of the street. If there's anything we Memphians and the kind of tourists we attract love, it's drinking al fresco. Such an amenity is bound to draw a crowd. And it does, so much so that a cover charge is now a perennial discussion — despite the corny name, layers of questionable optics, and uncertainty whether the program even worked last time.

A fact-finding mission to the French Quarter must have come up empty, otherwise we'd have strip clubs and video poker by now. According to the Beale Street Task Force's study, there have been eight "stampedes" since April. There's no denying that crowd control is an issue. So the city hired a consultant to tell the mayor and merchants what they want to hear: Beale Street Bucks are a good idea.

Nowhere else is such a fee necessary. But Beale Street is unique. Other more practical recommendations included setting crowd capacity at 20,000 and reconfiguring the entry points to alleviate crowding at Second Street.

Assessments of the situation and their costly fixes seem to overlook the encompassing reality that Beale Street's biggest problem is that it's not very big. The distance from Blues City to the New Daisy is less than a quarter-mile. When something outgrows its container, you don't discard the excess, you get a bigger container. Expanding the perimeter would make sense. This was the intent behind a resolution earlier this year that would have expanded the open-container zone to include South Main. Unwilling to yield their dominion on street-booze enjoyers, stampedes be damned, Beale Street's merchants bristled.

As long as the primary source of entertainment in the entertainment district comes from a bottle, with thousands of sweaty people up in others' personal space well past bedtime, there will be issues — cover charge or no. Whodini was right: The freaks do, indeed, come out at night.

So I'd like to propose some alternative solutions designed to lure people off the street. I'm happy to offer my consulting expertise to anyone who wishes to put these ideas into action in exchange for a commemorative plaque or unlimited mozzarella sticks.

Visit a pro sports arena in any other city. On your way, you'll pass at least one sports bar filled with eager pregamers gorging on jalapeño poppers and cheap beer before they move on to $9 drafts at the stadium. With AutoZone Park and FedExForum yards away and locals' enthusiasm for basketball, football, and now soccer, the area is overdue for a real sports bar. The Liberty Bowl brings thousands of college football fans in December, and Memphis in May always coincides with the NBA Playoffs. So hang some old growl towels, Memphis State gear, and a couple dozen monster televisions. Whip up a few flavors of wing sauce, ice down some beer buckets and watch the cash pour in. Call it Hop City — like Hoop City, but with beer, get it?

As companies consider making the move Downtown, surely their representatives have noticed a lack of options for grabbing a sausage biscuit on the way to work. This is essential to economic development. A 24-hour diner on Beale would meet this need and fulfill revelers' need for 4 a.m. sober-up eggs. Lives will be saved. Plus, it would help bridge that weird identity gap between the historic, family-friendly Beale Street tourists enjoy during the day and the boisterous playground it becomes at sundown. It doesn't have to be blues-themed or have a pig logo and 901 in the name. Call it whatever, as long as it serves jet-fuel coffee and thick-cut bacon on demand.

One of the liveliest spots on Bourbon Street is a Krystal. Surrounded by some of the best food in the world, the restaurant with the square hamburgers and the hot dog carts stays busy. Drunk people need to eat, and "Kitchen Open Late" is bar-speak for "Kitchen Open Until We Send the Fry Cook Home."

Am I suggesting more — or at least different — businesses on Beale would disperse crowds and prevent fights from breaking out? Hardly. But open containers and walk-up drink service encourage loitering, and more reasons to get people out of the street and into the businesses couldn't hurt. A cover charge perpetuates the perception of danger, and that iconic street deserves so much better.

          Shenanigans      Cache   Translate Page      

Memphis City Council members Bill Morrison, Edmund Ford Jr., and Janis Fullilove are having a lucrative 90 days. Since the August 2nd election, in which all three won Shelby County offices, these "public servants" have been taking home two paychecks — one from the county for their new jobs and one from the city of Memphis for their council jobs. That's because none of the three have done the proper thing and resigned their council seats after winning new offices. But the real issue isn't the double dipping, as galling as that is. No, the real issue is that by not resigning, these three have created a situation that enables the current city council to appoint their replacements, thereby depriving their constituents of being able to select their own council representatives in the upcoming November election. The next city election after that is October 2019, so the three appointees will have the advantage of nearly a year's incumbency in that contest. This isn't how democracy is supposed to work.

This city council is also playing games with three referendums on the ballot for November, and you need to know what's up. The citizens of Memphis in 2008 passed by a 71 percent margin a measure to institute Instant Runoff Voting. They also passed by a similar margin a measure to limit city council to two terms. The council is trying to overturn both of those decisions with deceptively worded referendums. For example, here's how they're tackling that pesky two-terms limit:

"Shall the Charter of the City of Memphis, Tennessee be amended to provide no person shall be eligible to hold or to be elected to the office of Mayor or Memphis City Council if any such person has served at any time more than three (3) consecutive four-year terms, except that service by persons elected or appointed to fill an unexpired four-year term shall not be counted as full four-year term?"

To an uninformed voter, it reads like the council wants to institute term limits — which is clever, because voters have already indicated they favor term limits. But in fact, it's a blatant power grab to extend council members' and the city mayor's alloted time in office to 12 years from the current eight.

The language on the other two referendums — which would rescind IRV and eliminate single-district runoffs — is equally deceptive. The council is attempting to rescind measures that have been passed but haven't even come into effect yet. Vote No on all three. This is some shenanigans.

Such shenanigans have also been happening on a national scale. Since the Shelby v. Holder decision in 2013, in which the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, there have been hundreds of restrictive voting measures passed, all in the South, and all in Republican-controlled states.

The Nation reports that since 2013, there are 868 fewer places to vote in the states affected by the SCOTUS ruling. Arizona, for example, has reduced the number of polling places by 70 percent — to just one polling place per 21,000 registered voters. In the most recent election in that state, voters waited in line for five hours at many polling places. See the map accompanying this column for a full accounting of this nefarious and anti-democratic practice.

Why do elected officials want fewer voters and longer terms in office? Simple. Money and power. It's a plague and it's spreading from the presidency on down to the local level. I can't think of any election in my lifetime where it's been more important to vote than the one coming up in November. We need to throw the rascals out and put a stop to this relentless assault on our democracy.

And speaking of shenanigans. ... You may have seen an insert in last week's Flyer that appeared at first glance to be a promo for the Cooper-Young Festival but was in fact a religious tract. The insert was sent directly to our printer without getting properly vetted by the ad department. We trusted someone and we got duped. Our apologies. By the way, the Cooper-Young Festival is this weekend, so go. Have fun. Tell 'em the Flyer sent you.

Studio: Taylor Marketing & All-Star Wrestling
The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Featured here are a few of the Big Time Wrestling moments with the wisdom of Veteran mic man Chuck Allen and his partner Terry Sullivan filling us in on the action and shows coming up and the latest news. But the bonus here is the Memphis match that features the silver tongue, Lance Russell. Russell was like a good friend telling you always what was on his mind. The guys on the "stick" were a huge part of thousands of Wrestling fans on Saturday morning and the golden era of the 70s.

          Georgia State coach tore right bicep giving fist bump      Cache   Translate Page      
Football is a violent game. However, Georgia State coach Shawn Elliott found out the hard way that fist-bump celebrations can be, too.According to ESPN reporter Olivia Harlan Decker, the second-year coach said he needs surgery to repair a broken right bicep caused by an “aggressive fist bump” during a loss to North Carolina State. In this case, Elliott flipped the idiom and added injury to insult. Georgia State scored the first touchdown of the game, but NC State walloped his team 41-7.The Panthers enter the Week 2 clash with Memphis at 1-1, and Elliott should be listed on the injury report as probable. Hopefully, though, the 45-year-old coach will keep his left bicep under control when Georgia State scores.College football is the best.

          Outflix Finale Features Drama And Community      Cache   Translate Page      

After a week full of thought-provoking and engaging cinema, Outflix Film Festival comes to a close tomorrow night with three films about navigating queer identity, within one’s self, through the LGBTQ community, and in relation to society at large. Being recognized, being witnessed, as a queer person can be hugely empowering, or deeply shameful, depending on the context, and these films explore those contexts, as well as the ones in between.

Sodom, (4 PM) directed by Mark Wilshin, kicks things off quietly, with a narrative that plays like a contemporary gay version of Before Sunrise, but with way more skin. Two men, not quite strangers but obviously not friends, are brought together by strange circumstances on a deserted street somewhere in Europe. During their night of unplanned fellowship, Will (Pip Brignall) and Michael (Jo Weil) question what it means to come out as gay, to look gay, and to simply be gay. The narrative circles around the idea that, as gay men, they are forced to make a choice of whether to act on their desires and potentially face expulsion from their communities, or to repress those feelings, play straight, get married, and live a lie. Wilshin gets melodramatic at times, but keeps coming back to the steamy side, luxuriating in beautifully filmed images of the male body.


The next feature of the night, Leilah Weinraub’s Shakedown (6:30 PM) is an experimental documentary about the black lesbian club scene of early 2000s Los Angeles. Whether they arrived at the Shakedown dance parties on purpose or by accident, the subjects of the film describe the feeling of coming home, of rightness, of acceptance, upon finding the scene. The film delves into this tight-knit queer subculture and its role as a co-created chosen family, and the power and pleasure that kind of group can generate. This joyful documentary provides a sensuous, raw look into a world that no longer exists, but lives on thanks to Weinraub’s intimate videos.


The final film of the night and of the festival is 1985 (8:30 PM), a narrative feature directed by Yen Tan, which received rave reviews at SXSW and has won several awards on the film festival circuit. Adrian (Cory Michael Smith) returns to his hometown to visit family and old friends during the height of the AIDS epidemic. He struggles to integrate the old life he left behind with the world he found, and is rapidly losing, in New York City. Shot on black and white film, the look and texture of the movie reflects its dark subject matter; the weightiness of the AIDS crisis is palpable. It’s a heavy way to end the festival, but seems to send a strong message—despite all our gains, the LGTBQ community still faces prejudice, violence, and systemic oppression, in our town and all over the world. The work is far from over. After we come to terms with our queer identities, we have to come to terms with the struggle, and to join the fight.

Tickets for the final night of Outflix 2018 can be purchased in advance online, or at Malco Ridgeway Cinema Grill.

The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Dammit, Gannett

The Commercial Appeal soldiers on.

Though greatly diminished, the Gannett-owned daily newspaper has hired a clutch of new reporters to replace all the institutional memory and talent lost to digital startup, The Daily Memphian.

But non-local layout and non-existent copy editing persists. So, there's no shortage of bizarre typos. A report on Tropical Storm Gordon shared news out of Destub, Florida, which is kinda like Destin, but shorter.

Finally, as all the local department stores break out their Halloween displays, here's a terrifying social media share about an "active shooter" who shot multiple people "Downtown."

Careful readers will recognize The Enquirer and recognize that this drama's unfolding in Cincinnati. But that's a lot to ask of a headline-responsive internet culture, and nobody wants to be the little paper that cried "active shooter!"


          A Memphis State of Mind: Men's Fall Fashion      Cache   Translate Page      
A local perspective on men’s style.

For a certain type of guy, having good style is more than wearing what's trendy. It is a state of mind. It means being impeccably groomed, so as to give him the confidence boost to move forward in any way. Because when you feel better, you look better. As we say cheers to September (fashion month), here's the perspective of some cool and creative guys in Memphis on personal style, grooming, and fashion.

Stephen - @Iam_the1ndonly

My perspective on style in general is a very simple one and one that I take from fashion designer Tom Ford: "Dressing well is a form of good manners." I keep that approach daily while preparing for my day. Yes, I want to look professional and respectable for my clients, so when I put on one of my suits every morning, I do not take the approach as if it is a uniform, but more a symbol/statement of who I am as a person. I let it reflect my personality.

Here in Memphis, we aren't known as a trendy or fashion-forward city like L.A., New York, Atlanta, or Miami. We are such a blue-collar city. I was able to grow up watching my father dress in a suit, and I realized that I, too, wanted that for myself. Fashion is constantly growing, changing, reinventing, and repeating itself — from the suspenders back in the old speakeasy days to the stockbrokers of the '80s, and from the wide-peak-lapel blazers in the '60s being born again in the '90s and 2000s. But one thing will remain the same ... it's always your personality!

Ziggy @fomoloop

Grooming, in general, influences personal style by subconsciously adding a shot of confidence to the man. It's similar to home and garden upkeep. You have more pride in something when you've taken the time to tend, grow, and maintain it.

Gonzo @gone_zo

I've only lived in Memphis for a year and I love it! I relish knowing that Memphians push the status quo (the herd look) and proudly express their individuality through a variety of unique styles. It's seriously appreciated here. Drive three hours out east (Nashville, I'm talking to you), and everybody starts to look the same. If you dare to deviate from the herd, you're shunned for standing out!

Eso @coolurbanhippie

Fashion is more open than it ever has been for men. There used to be a lot of rules. Now, anything goes! Right now, it's less about fashion and more about style. Style is very personal. The climate is perfect for showcasing your personal style and expression, whatever it may be.

Report alleges lack of training, oversight at Tennessee Historical Commission.

A new report found some big problems with the Tennessee Historical Commission (THC), the group that tried but failed to block Memphis from removing statues of slave owners.

An August audit by the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury's office found that THC members lack the legal training to properly administer the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act (THPA), the law they tried to use to block the removal of the statues.

The report said another state agency left the THC with no formal way to communicate with the media during the turbulent Memphis statue-removal process. Also, the report says THC lacks proper oversight of 14 historic sites that are in the group's care.

The THC is "administratively attached" to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). While some commissioners informally asked for the assistance of TDEC lawyers through the Memphis statue-removal process, the THC failed to formally ask for the department's help, the report says.

"Without the services provided by [TDEC's] Office of General Counsel, the commission would not be able to fulfill its duties under the Heritage Protection Act," according to the audit.

New commissioners are given an introductory handbook, the audit says, which has a section about the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act. But that's about it.

"However, commission staff stated that they do not have the legal expertise to give commissioners training on legal aspects of the waiver process," reads the report.

For this, the comptroller recommends formal training for all THC members.

"Members should have some training on legal aspects of their actions, as well as opportunities to ask questions about processes that are unfamiliar to them," reads the audit.

Part of the problem, according to the report, is that THC and TDEC have no formal contract to bind them. The last agreement was signed in 1987. So, THC has no standing to demand help from the department, according to the audit. This became important during the Memphis statue-removal process.

"In recent months, the commission experienced increased media attention as a result of the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act," reads the audit. "Simultaneously, [TDEC] management decided to stop providing the commission communication services, including press releases, and media handling in 2017."

The groups are working on a new, formal contract and TDEC has committed three attorneys to the THC.

Historical sites

THC contracts oversight of some historical sites to various nonprofits organizations.

The audit found none of the organizations have disaster plans for their sites. Only five of them could show proof of insurance. Only half of them have inventory lists of historic artifacts. Some that do have such lists are out of date.

"Specifically, we found that one inventory list was dated 1986 without indication of a more current list," reads the audit. "In another case, we could not determine whether the inventory list was current as it was missing the date altogether."

Without such lists, "the historic site operators do not know what they have and would not know if an item was lost."


          Veazey Takes New Role in Mayor's Office      Cache   Translate Page      
A shake-up at Memphis City Hall finds a familiar name moving up the ranks in Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland's adminstration.

Kyle Veazey joined Strickland's office in 2016. It was a high-profile move from The Commercial Appeal where he'd covered candidate Strickland during the election. Veazey left The CA in 2015 and later joined as the deputy director of communications, working under former WMC anchor Ursula Madden.

Veazey will now serve Strickland as one of two Deputy Chief Operating Officers. A Wednesday statement says Veazey will work with Chief Operating Officer Doug McGowen "to deliver longer-term priority projects, coordinate the city’s role in economic development initiatives, and oversee performance improvement opportunities, among other duties." Veazey is a 2004 graduate of the University of Mississippi.

City-government veteran Chandell Carr will work with McGowen "for day-to-day service delivery, resource allocation, budgeting, and policy development for all of the city’s divisions, among other duties." Carr has a law degree from the University of Memphis and has most recently served as the city's Equity, Diversion & Inclusivity Officer for the Division of Human Resources.

"Chandell and Kyle have been a big part of our work these two-and-a-half years," Strickland said in a statement. "We recognize and reward talent at the city of Memphis, and I'm proud to watch these two leaders grow as they play even greater roles in continuing our progress."

Carr and Veazey will transition into their new roles next week.

The jobs became available as current Deputy COO Patrice Thomas left to become the new Chief Administrative Officer of Shelby County government. Thanks to this and an already vacant position in the COO's office, the moves will not increase the city budget, Strickland said.
          Renovated Pink Palace Mansion to Open in December      Cache   Translate Page      


After close to two years of construction, the Pink Palace Mansion is set to re-open December 8th, the museum's officials announced Wednesday.


Relocated and refurbished exhibits in the mansion will include a Piggly Wiggly store replica, a rural early 20th century country store, and a restored Clyde Parke Miniature Circus, which will be displayed on the second floor of the mansion — a section that has been closed to the public for 40 years.


Bill Walsh, marketing manager for the Pink Palace said opening up the second story of the mansion will “will be a great opportunity for many visitors to see a side of the mansion they’ve never seen.”


The revamped Piggly Wiggly exhibit will be recreated based on patent drawings and photographs of the original store. There will also be space dedicated to Clarence Saunders, the founder of Piggly Wiggly, who first began building the mansion in the 1920s, but had to turn the house over to the city for a museum after declaring bankruptcy. 


The renovated mansion will also house new exhibits like the Cossitt Gallery, featuring more than 600 artifacts from the city’s first culture and history museum. The museum was set up in a room in the Cossitt Library in the early 19th century. The new gallery will aim to recreate the look of that first museum.


Other new exhibits will include a Memphis streetscape meant to depict the symbolic intersection of black and white culture and history from 1900 to 1925.


The mansion will also have “plush new event rental facilities, state-of-the art lighting and a refurbished grand staircase,” Walsh said.


Walsh said construction is slated to wrap up soon and then the process of installing the exhibits will begin. “The exhibits are going to be spectacular. We’re excited that it’s re-opening during the holidays too. It’s sort of a holiday gift for Memphians,” Walsh said.


          Cool Thing: Viewfinders for the Color Blind      Cache   Translate Page      

Color blind visitors to 13 Tennessee state parks will be able to see the changing fall foliage in a whole new way this year.

The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development installed 13 special viewfinders with EnChroma lenses designed to alleviate red-green color blindness.

“One of the main pillars we promote in Tennessee is our scenic beauty,” said Kevin Triplett, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development. “The reds, oranges and yellows in the fall and the incredible colors in the spring are a staple of what comes to mind when people think about Tennessee or visit here.


"But to realize, through red/green deficiencies and other forms of color blindness, there potentially are more than 13 million people in our country alone who cannot fully appreciate the beauty our state has to offer, we wanted to do something about that. We wanted to provide opportunities for more people to see what those of us who can may take for granted.”

But, as with many things to do with state government, West Tennessee got shorted.

Two of the 13 special viewfinders have been installed here. East Tennessee got seven. Middle Tennessee got three. Yes, mountains and all that...but still.

The closest viewfinder to Memphis is at Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park's Poplar Lake, near the the nature center. The other in West Tennessee is at Chickasaw State Park, near Henderson.

          City Council Brings Back Beale Street Entrance Fee      Cache   Translate Page      

The Memphis City Council voted Tuesday to reinstate the fee to enter Beale Street based on “needs-based determination.”


Bringing back the entrance fee was one of the 24 recommendations made by the group, Event Risk Management Solutions (ERMS), which was hired by the Beale Street Task Force earlier this year to assess crowd control and safety on Beale.


After a long debate between the council Tuesday evening, they approved the fee 7-4, but on a temporary, needs-based basis that is to be determined by the Downtown Memphis Commission and the Memphis Police Department.


The original resolution, sponsored by Councilman Kemp Conrad, called for implementing an attendance-based entrance fee when the crowd is expected to exceed 10,000.


But, Council Chairman Berlin Boyd, who chaired the Beale Street Task Force said even an attendance-based charge could “look discriminatory.”

“Hypothetically, what if we have 10,000 African-American male and females on the street and you put Beale Street Bucks in place, what does that look like?” Boyd asked. “ What if we have 10,000 African Americans on Saturday and 10,000 African Americans on Sunday night and we put Beale Street Bucks in place? If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck.”


Boyd said public safety is important, but “we cannot have something that looks sketchy. I’m not voting for anything that’s going to looks like it’s discriminatory toward any person in the city of Memphis or any tourist.”


Councilman Worth Morgan told Boyd and colleagues that public safety shouldn’t be compromised for optics. Morgan also emphasized the importance of taking action, after an early morning shooting at the Purple Haze night club Monday.

To that, Boyd, joined by Councilman Martavius Jones, said an entrance fee would not have prevented that situation, as the night club is outside of the Beale Street Entertainment district. 


Continuing, Boyd reiterated that the program “has to be fair and equitable” for those who patronize and visit Beale Street. He said he wants to make sure that the city isn’t putting itself in the position to get sued.


Council attorney Allan Wade agreed, saying that there may be some risks with setting the number at 10,000, as the study found there was no correlation between crowd size and incidents on Beale. In the case of ligation, he said the court could see the number as “arbitrary.” He suggests adopting some “further objective criteria” for determining the number.


“I do believe that a court would look at MPD’s determination as being needs-based on safety and could be more defensible in court,” Wade said. “That’s just my humble opinion.”


So, Councilman Bill Morrison proposed the idea of allowing MPD and the DMC decide what elements call for implementing a fee or other security measures like wanding patrons.


“Let’s let the experts have this conversation,” Morrison said. “Let’s let the folks that get paid to protect and manage decide.”


The council concurred that the Beale Street Merchants Association should have an input on determining safety precautions as well.

The $5 fee to enter the street on Saturday nights during peak seasons was eliminated by the council last November. Looking for an alternative to the fee, the Beale Street Task Force hired the crowd control consultant, ERMS earlier this year to study ways to keep the crowds on Beale orderly.


The group produced 24 recommendations in all. Some of which include setting the maximum capacity on the street to 20,000 people, restricting Beale Street to pedestrian traffic only, and redesigning the street’s entry points.


The study also concluded that there wasn’t enough regulation and monitoring of those entering the street.


Two weeks ago, the council made the first move toward new safety precautions, voting to spend a little under $800,000 for bollards — barriers keeping cars from driving onto the street. The bollards will be placed alongside Second protecting people lining up to enter the street, as well as at the ends of the entertainment portion of the street at Beale and Second and at Beale and Fourth.

          BurgerFest Is Back      Cache   Translate Page      


Last October, Seth Agranov, founder of the Best Memphis Burger Festival, announced he was stepping away from the event, citing time conflicts and declining attendance. He said he hoped the festival would be taken over.

Details were finalized last week, and the festival will be back on October 27th at Tiger Lane. The event will be run by Southwood Entertainment Group.

Brian Ellsworth of Southwood says that Agranov and his team all had full-time jobs, which made running such an event difficult. Putting on events is Ellsworth's full-time job.

First things first, he changed the name slightly to BurgerFest, as that what everybody calls it anyway.

He's also changing the structure of the event, so that there's less pressure of the competing teams to feed the crowd. In fact, this year, there will be no competition. (It will return in upcoming events.)

Ellsworth is currently recruiting 2 well-known burger places to provide samples. This year, festival-goers can get a punch card for sampling 3 burgers and 5 beers. He hopes to up the burger count eventually to 6.

Ellsworth purchased the rights to the festival for around $10,000. He said there's money to be made with the festival, but past efforts weren't so successful.

He says he wants the event to better serve the public. There will be a burger bar, where full-size burgers can be purchased, live music, and an expanded children's area.

Ellsworth has a vision of an expanded festival — one that is multiple days with carnival rides. He sees a festival that satisfies all comers — foodies who are there to flex their burger-making skills and those who come out to have fun and hang out.

          TBI, Google Allowed to Keep Files Secret      Cache   Translate Page      

Should the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation be able to keep its case files forever secret from the public?

Should Google be able to keep secret how much money it will get from a local government?

Those were but two questions reviewed Thursday morning during the second meeting of a group of state lawmakers trying to get their hands around the 563 current exemptions to Tennessee’s Open Record Act.

Jack McElroy, executive editor of the Knoxville News-Sentinel, told the group public records are vital to a newspaper’s watchdog function.

“Records are critical for us to fulfill our responsibilities set out in the First Amendment, for being the eyes and the ears of the citizens, and holding government accountable,” said McElroy, who is also co-chairman of the Tennessee Press Association’s (TPA) government affairs committee.

McElroy pointed to two real-world examples of how open records exemptions affect public knowledge.

In 2015, Google scored a 23-year financial agreement with the city of Clarksville’s Industrial Development Board. They also scored, through a 200-page nondisclosure agreement, the rights to hide just how much the deal would cost taxpayers and the number of employees the project would create.

Google got the dodge by calling the information “trade secret,” said McElroy. Senator Todd Gardenhire (R-Chattanooga) asked the editor if he could define ”trade secrets.”

“No, sir,” McElroy said, drawing laughter from the crowd. He held up a thick sheaf of papers containing the Google non-disclosure agreement with Clarksville. “It took Google 200 pages to define it. I can’t do it. But I'll leave this document with you.”

Gardenhire retorted, “I guess it’s like the definition of pornography. You’ll know it when you see it, right?”

McElroy also took on the TBI’s “forever exemption.” He said it was one of the two original exemptions to the open records law when it when it was first passed in 1957.
Senator Mike Bell (R-Riceville) asked if anyone in the room knew why TBI got such an exemption and said, “it seems like a strange exception to me.” McElroy said he wasn’t really sure why but he had been told that perhaps it was because TBI investigates government corruption.

McElroy said that it was only because a judge ordered a small piece of a TBI investigation to be opened that the public found out that a Criminal Court judge in Knoxville had been high on opioids on the bench and had bought drugs from the people in his court.

The judge pled guilty to criminal misconduct and was placed on diversion. But Knoxville News-Sentinel repeaters could not find out more, in order to be able to hold other public officials accountable for what McElroy described as a years-long situation.

“We would have liked to see how the TBI talked to and how far into the question of, ‘Who knew what, when?’ but it was unavailable because of the forever exception,” McElroy said. “It is something that Tennesseans and those in Knox County will never know, in this particular case.”

No TBI official was present during Thursday’s hearing. Though, committee members were told that someone from the agency would be at the next hearing.

Janet Kleinfelter, senior counsel with the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office, urged the group to be cautious when examining and especially in ending some of the exceptions.

“We would strongly suggest before you begin and during this process that you talk with the agency, the commissioner, the department, the board, and the local government affected by the exception,” Kleinfelter said. “The exceptions enacted since I’ve been doing this — 20 plus years — come, usually, with a very good reason adopted by legislature.”

On Wednesday, McElroy published an opinion piece on the topic for the News-Sentinel.

          Purple Haze Closes Indefinitely      Cache   Translate Page      

Purple Haze will close indefinitely until its owners can "evaluate best practices for providing a quality nightclub experience in Memphis," though they said that might not be possible now Downtown.

The move comes after four were shot inside the club Monday and after club owners won a recent court case that allowed them to keep the bar open until 5 a.m., just like other Beale Street bars.

"We understand that what happened Monday morning was a terrible event," club owners said in a statement Thursday afternoon. "As we have stated we are closing to evaluate how to move forward to provide a quality nightclub experience, however we are unsure if that is possible in the current environment in Downtown Memphis."

The statement says the club's security plan has been approved by the Tennessee Alcohol Beverage Committee and it partially outlines that plan. Also, club owners say the bar has been unfairly portrayed by media and police as a hub of violence.

Here is the blue owner's statement in full:

"Purple Haze announced today that they are ceasing operations for the time being as management continues to evaluate best practices for providing a quality nightclub experience in Memphis.

As we stated earlier in the week, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the shooting incident that happened early Monday morning at Purple Haze. As the safety and security of our guests and employees are the most important priority, we are not announcing a re-opening date as we continue to evaluate best practices in order to provide a quality nightclub experience in Memphis, Tennessee.

Our current security plan on file with the Tennessee Alcohol Beverage Commission has been approved and details the security efforts that we have instituted for over seven and a half years.

Depending on crowd size, we employ five to seven strategically placed security guards paid at a minimum of $20 an hour and an armed off-duty police officer paid at $40 an hour that has the authority to uphold the law as needed. Our front door security officers use metal-detecting wands to check patrons as they enter the door. As our capacity is only 200 people, we believe we provide more security coverage per person than other venues in the area.

We understand that what happened Monday morning was a terrible event. As we have stated we are closing to evaluate how to move forward to provide a quality nightclub experience, however we are unsure if that is possible in the current environment in Downtown Memphis.


Many times, we have been portrayed in the news media as having been the location for violent events, when in fact the violent events happened on the street outside of Purple Haze and neighboring parking garages that we do not own or operate.

Police reports and media use Purple Haze as a landmark in the reporting of the events casting a negative light on our operations. Through our own research of on-file police incident reports, we have learned that there are clubs in the Historic District that have had significantly more incidents requiring police involvement than Purple Haze, yet seemingly less media attention.

Given the regularity of violent events that occur Downtown, we are concerned for the citizens and tourists of Memphis. We applaud Director [Michael] Rallings and the Memphis Police Department for their efforts for doing all they can to mitigate the violence, but violent events are going to happen despite everyone’s best efforts.

We urge the citizens of Memphis to take note and work with their representatives and city leaders to try to find a solution to decrease the violence in the city."

          USDA and FDA to Host Joint Meeting On Cell-Based Meat Regulation      Cache   Translate Page      

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are hosting a joint meeting next month to discuss regulation and labelling of cell-based meat. Previously known as “clean meat,” cell-based meat is a slaughter-free alternative to traditional animal agriculture that is produced by culturing animal cells in a laboratory setting. “This is an important opportunity to hear from the agricultural industry and consumers as we consider the regulatory framework for these new products,” USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue said. “American farmers and ranchers feed the world, but as technology advances, we must consider how to inspect and regulate to ensure food safety, regardless of the production method.” The meeting follows a joint letter sent to President Donald Trump last month by cell-based meat startup Memphis Meats and the meat lobby group North American Meat Institute urging the administration to establish a framework that encourages fair regulatory practices for food production, and requesting a formal meeting between the USDA, FDA, and other relevant stakeholders.

          Hi-Tone Now Serving Food (Finally!)      Cache   Translate Page      


The Hi-Tone is finally, finally (!) serving food. It’s been a process, says Hi-Tone owner Brian “Skinny” McCabe. It took three and a half years to bulldoze through low-dollar summertimes and “janky-ass” equipment to get to this point.

The menu is spare but creative, designed by Josh McLane. The emphasis here is on hand-held foods. Think of those paper trays and you’ve got the picture.
There’s the Tapenadchos, with homemade pita chips and olive tapenade and pizzas straight out of your high-school cafeteria (cheese, pepperoni, and sausage). Sandwiches include the Hamtone and the vegetarian Cara. HEELS is a tribute to McLane’s band and is made with bacon, Provolone, spicy peanut butter, and homemade fruit jam. “It’s a beautiful, beautiful marriage,” says McCabe of the sandwich, which he says is straight-up stoner food.

Right now, the Hi-Tone is working out the kinks. Getting the staff used to serving food, correcting the typos on the menu. But, McCabe says, so far so good. Folks are coming after work to eat, or eating before gigs. “I won’t say it’s selling like hot cakes because we don’t serve hot cakes. It’s selling like hot sandwiches,” he says.
Specials start at about $3, and sandwiches run to $9.

One thing that folks can just forget about is the resurrection of the old favorite dishes from the original Hi-Tone. No way, no how. “It’s my Hi-Tone,” McCabe asserts.

Should the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation be able to keep its case files forever secret from the public?

We were scared and anxious. Would we be able to make any friends or enjoy fellowship at another church, in another city, in our 60’s no less?!  There were so many unknowns in our future life. We had decided to move to Houston from Memphis, Tennessee, where we had always lived and where [...]

Join us in Memphis, TN -- touch down in the land of the delta blues. Somewhere east of the Mississippi and west of Nashville...a proud community home to Beale street, Graceland, and barbecue sauce laid on thicker than the humidity they're oh-so-famous for. This is the south, blue collar working class, the real -- this is heartland-- middle America. I can't think of a better place to be a young art...ist...coming up, making music and being inspired. The music, the culture and the history in this town are unrivaled. Speaking of music, somewhere down in Memphis, there's something starting to brew, a duo of singer songwriters — and if you ask the locals, they'd tell you the band is next in line. Not quite Elvis, and not quite Timberlake -- introducing Memphis High, a band wise beyond their name. Let me tell you about these kids...hem...young men.

.. Meet 17 year olds Grant Vogel and Witt McKay. Their combined age still comes up WAY too young for having such impressive influences as Al Green, the Dire Straits, Elvis, and a series of old Motown records. Let me tell you exactly what I'm talking about...Old Stax and Sun Studios resonate more with these guys than any 2010 Pro Tools powerhouse. Talk about the most soulful young duo out there that your friends don't know anything about...yet. Some call them James Morrison in the body of the Jonas Brothers, but I don't know if they'd go for that one. According to Witt, the band got together through a vocal coach in Memphis who introduced them. He continues, "at the time, we were about 11 years old and the studio owner had heard that I could sing so she brought me back to the vocal room to sing with Grant and we knew right away that we had something great together." Prior to that these guys literally started from the cradle (no pun intended Clapton) — Grant comments "I think music has just been an instinctual thing for me, I started singing as soon as I could talk." Talk about harmonies that make the Gibb brothers look like high school drop-outs. Tall statement, I know. Grant continues, "I credit my family the most for supporting me in this thing that most people consider "crazy" and/or "stupid." They have never ever been the cynical parents that they so easily could have been, I am lucky."

In spring of 2010, after years of hard work to gain exposure, the band signed with power management company The Collective, and have started work on a record for release this fall. The band has spent the past few months between Los Angeles and Nashville working on new songs and preparing for their official debut to the world...the best is yet to come. "The songwriting process is always a big thrill for me, both when I'm collaborating and writing by myself," comments Witt. Grant adds, "the feeling of writing a song that you can really stand behind and say, this is what I want to say and how I want to say it, is unlike any other feeling in the world -- you also learn a ton about yourself and others when you write, it's simply awesome." While we cannot figure out if the band has spent more time on a plane or in the studio, they've already collaborated with Mike Busbee (Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Katy Perry, Timbaland), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), Darrell Brown (Keith Urban), Andy Dodd (Jesse McCartney, Miley Cyrus), Bryan Todd (Miley Cyrus, Mitchel Musso), Ashley Gorley (Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley), Eman (David Archuleta, Trey Bruce (Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill), Big Time Rush, Backstreet Boys), Drew and Shannon (Jonny Lang, Robert Randolph, Marc Brousard), Richard Marx, and many others. On writing songs, Grant states "My first line of advice to anyone would be to make music you love and don't look back." Witt continues, "I finally feel like we're putting together a record that represents us, where we are at in our lives, and where we're from." "We hope to release it this fall." Manager Lucas Keller comments on the band, "I'm totally intrigued by where they come from and how it has affected the writing process. On another note, I think I've seen them order creole-style jambalaya at three separate dinners in three separate cities nowhere near Memphis..... I'm convinced..... it's in the blood!"

With a record nearly completed and a series of tour dates falling onto the books, the future looks quite bright for these two Memphis natives. While they know there is a lot of work to be done, surely success will come long before the Tennessee drinking age. Give it time boys.
