52. Secret Ingredient -

Cafe Eclectic has found itself in an enviable spot since the cafe’s first location opened five years ago in Midtown.

Hooks Central Library, to name a few – was being forced to reorganize.

If a prime time television show moves to a different day and time, there’s undoubtedly a risk factor involved.

But if the show’s good enough, it’s going to attract you, said Scott Gentleman, general manager of Jim’s Place East, who hopes that theory also holds true for a popular restaurant.

78. Mixing it Up -

Scarce new development is providing the retail sector the opportunity to rethink how it delivers its goods and services, moving away from car-dependent models and toward walkable urban centers.

This mixed-use, walkable neighborhood concept is something Memphis will see more and more of, especially in the urban core, said Jason Polley, project leasing director for Stonecrest Investments LLC.

79. Proposed Federal Aid Cuts Threaten Rural Airports -

True North. My oldest big brother fell recently. He took a header off the basement steps and landed on his hip.

Construction, says Montgomery Martin, is hard. And he should know, having been in the business since 1978.

86. Memphis Makes Great Vacation Spot -

Ray’s Take: It’s time to start planning that family summer vacation and saving up for it. AAA and Money Magazine both estimate the amount spent on a family vacation is about $1,600. With gas prices threatening to reach new highs that amount could easily rise.

87. Blockbuster Shuttering All Memphis Stores -

Some Hollywood films are so predictable, viewers can see the ending coming long before the credits roll.

88. Blockbuster Closing Last Two Memphis Storefronts -

In a matter of days, Memphians will no longer be able to visit a store and make it a Blockbuster night.

89. Long History Follows Paulette’s to Harbor Town -

Georges Falls has seen many changes come upon Overton Square since the entertainment district’s heyday in the 1970s and ’80s, but one of the most startling changes is one he is bringing himself.

98. Conserve and Protect -

Iconic nautical images abound on the modern-day Mississippi River, this country’s largest and most storied river system.
