16. Lodging for Patients’ Families Increasing -

More hospitality options for out-of-towners seeking medical care in Memphis are on the way with the construction of two family lodging centers.

The $7.75 million American Cancer Society Harrah’s Hope Lodge is on schedule for an Aug. 27 finish date, while work on the $6.6 million FedEx Family House should be done by mid-November.

They will bring to five the number of hospitality lodges that offer people a free place to stay within and near the Memphis Medical Center district. The Memphis Grizzlies House, Ronald McDonald House of Memphis and Target House already serve families with children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

But people who come here to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital have had to pay for motel rooms or sleep in patient rooms. The FedEx House will change that.

The Harrah’s Hope Lodge is for adult cancer patients receiving care at any Memphis hospital or oncology center.

“We did a needs assessment study in 2003,” said Leighanne Hart, capital campaign director for the Mid-South division of the American Cancer Society. “At that time, it was determined that we had over 2,000 patients coming into Memphis from the Mid-South and other areas to receive their cancer care and there was nothing for adult cancer patient care who have that need. We also learned that people were coming into Memphis and sleeping in their cars.”

Sixty- and 80-mile commutes can be a weary journey for patients receiving chemotherapy.

“The worst case is when a patient would just give up because they could not afford to come to Memphis and couldn’t afford a place to stay so they unfortunately did not receive their cancer treatment,” Hart said.

The Hope Lodge is already part of the Union Avenue streetscape. It is immediately east of Sun Studio.

The three-story structure was designed by Trivers Associates of St. Louis. The general contractor for the project is Brice Building Co. Inc. of Birmingham, Ala.

The first floor has common spaces including kitchens, a dining room, living room, patios and a screened-in porch. The second and third floors have a total of 40 patient suites for cancer patients and a guest/caregiver.

The American Cancer Society has raised $750,000 to cover the first three years of operating costs. Although the lodge is slated for completion at the end of next month, a date has not been set for when it will begin accepting guests.

“Our first position is a full-time director for the Hope Lodge facility,” Hart said. “We are currently looking for the right person for that job. It is a very important and a very big job.”

The American Cancer Society is looking to raise an additional $50,000 to cover construction add-ons to make the building more resistant to damage from earthquakes. The organization also expects to begin an endowment campaign for future operational funds once the building opens.

The Harrah’s Foundation, which is funded by the casino company Harrah’s Entertainment, gave $2 million to the building fund. The University of Tennessee Health Science Center donated the land.

The Plough Foundation and The Assisi Foundation of Memphis Inc. each gave $1 million.

“All hospitals and clinics within our community are supporting this very important endeavor,” Hart said. “There is nothing like this in Memphis, and this will be the 30th Hope Lodge in the country.”

The FedEx house is being built with donations from FedEx Corp., FedEx President Fred Smith and his wife, Diane Smith, and FedEx Chief Financial Officer Alan Graf and his wife, Susan Graf.

“This is really sort of a dream and vision of Susan Graf,” said Janet Phillips, executive consultant for Le Bonheur. “She is very involved with the Le Bonheur Club and has spent lots of hands-on time down here.”

The FedEx House is located on the north side of Poplar Avenue across the street from the new hospital. It is three stories and will have 24 suites.

Looney Ricks Kiss of Memphis is the project architect, while Montgomery Martin Contractors is the general contractor.

The FedEx House will be managed and operated by Wilton Hotel Management Co. Inc. The company also runs the Memphis Grizzlies House.

“The FedEx Family House is really going to offer such a great benefit in terms, not only a place to sleep, but in my mind a real nurturing environment,” Phillips said.

20. City Mayoral Transition Yields Crowded To-Do List -  

Memphis Mayor-elect A C Wharton Jr. will be appointing a new city attorney once he takes office next week.

Elbert Jefferson, the city attorney Mayor Pro Tem Myron Lowery tried to fire just minutes after taking the oath of office on July 31, Friday sent a second resignation letter to Lowery. The two met for an hour Sunday evening at City Hall and Lowery accepted Jefferson’s resignation.

Jefferson’s attorney, Ted Hansom, and city Chief Administrative Officer Jack Sammons were also present. Jefferson turned in his key card, the keys to his city car and his laptop.

“The drama is over,” Lowery said Monday. “For my part, I wish it had never happened.”

Dramatis personae

In a resignation letter last week to Wharton, Jefferson had expressed hope that he would be hired for some position in the new administration. Over the weekend, he used the same text in the new letter but addressed it to Lowery instead. He requested the city pay his legal fees as well.

The resignation letter to Lowery made moot an ouster suit filed by Shelby County District Attorney General Bill Gibbons. Criminal Court Judge James Lammey, who was to hear the case, reset a final report to Oct. 27, citing Jefferson’s departure.

“A hearing on the issue of suspension would be an inefficient use of judicial resources, of the state of Tennessee and of the resources of the city of Memphis, and considering (Jefferson’s) current health status, would be an unnecessary tax on (Jefferson’s) well-being and a possible threat to his health,” Lammey wrote in the court order.

Jefferson was scheduled to return to City Hall from sick leave Monday. He apparently believed the new mayor would be in office by the time he returned.

An audit of city financial affairs is standard procedure in a change of administrations. Wharton is naming team members to review the offices of the city attorney, human resources and finance and administration. He was also to name members of his transition team Monday.

Time-, battle-tested

Shelby County Commissioner Mike Carpenter and Methodist Healthcare executive Cato Johnson will head the team.

The other members are:

- Herman Morris, attorney and 2007 candidate for Memphis Mayor.

- Tomeka Hart, Memphis Urban League CEO and Memphis school board member.

- Jim Strickland, attorney and Memphis City Council member.

- Rev. Dwight Montgomery, Southern Christian Leadership Conference Memphis chapter President.

- Jose Velasquez, Latino Memphis former executive director.

- Nisha Powers, Powers Hill Design Inc. President.

- Paul Morris, attorney and former chairman Center City Commission.

- Douglas Scarboro, The Leadership Academy vice president.

- Steve Reynolds, Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. CEO.

- Diane Rudner, Plough Foundation chairman.

- Darrell Cobbins, Universal Commercial CEO.

Johnson has more experience serving on such task forces and ad hoc committees than any other leader in the city’s corporate community. Most recently, Johnson was one of two business leaders on the ad hoc committee exploring single-source local funding for education. He also served as a leader of the Mid-South Fairgrounds renovation committee and has been involved in similar capacities with every major construction project for a civic use in the past 15 years.

Carpenter’s appointment is certain to fuel speculation that he might be tapped for some role in the new administration. However, Carpenter has already been holding fundraisers in anticipation of a bid for re-election to his commission seat in the 2010 county elections.

Wharton is tentatively scheduled to take the oath of office Oct. 26.

The Shelby County Commission also meets that same day and could receive Wharton’s resignation and declare a vacancy in the county mayor’s office with a vote to appoint Wharton’s successor-to-come in November. Until that vote, County Commission Chairwoman Joyce Avery will serve as interim mayor.

“It will be a day in which I come to work at one place and leave work from another place,” Wharton told The Daily News.

But the Shelby County Election Commission will meet earlier than expected -- Thursday afternoon -- to certify the Oct. 15 election results. Once the results are certified, Wharton is free to resign as Shelby County mayor and take the oath as Memphis mayor.

Cooperative efforts

Meanwhile, Wharton has asked City Council Chairman Harold Collins to consider delaying a council vote today on the five appointees the city mayor is to make to a metro charter commission. The council set today’s vote with the intention of having whomever won the Oct. 15 special election appoint members of the panel.

“I won’t be there on the 20th. … I’m seeing if they are in a position to put it off until I’m actually over there,” Wharton told The Daily News, as he has had attorneys researching if a council vote in November would meet timelines for such an effort set out in state law.

“I believe that they may be able to meet on Nov. 3,” Wharton said.

Wharton has already named the 10 appointees to be made by the Shelby County mayor to the panel. The County Commission approved all 10 earlier this month.

While it appears he will make the other five, Wharton said he will ask the council, through Collins, to effectively pick the five nominees, whom Wharton would then send to the council as his appointees.

“I chose all 10 over here, which I had to do by law. If I could find some way around it that passed legal muster, then I would do that,” he said. “But we’ve researched it and I know of no way in which the city mayor can say … ‘I’m not going to do that.’ You can’t transfer it.”

Wharton and Lowery were to discuss the matter at a meeting Monday afternoon. Lowery told The Daily News he had received no suggested appointees from council members, but would be willing to submit names the council wants on the charter commission.


21. Mayoral Field Stands At 28 -- For Now -  

It is the largest field of candidates for Memphis mayor in the 41 year history of the mayor-council form of government – possibly in the history of the city.

But before the 28 candidate field in the Oct. 15 special election goes into the record book, there is the next week to consider.

Thursday’s noon deadline to file a qualifying petition is the last word on candidates who will enter the race. But next Thursday – Sept. 10 – at noon is the deadline for any of those candidates to withdraw if they wish. And the talks to get some of those who made this week’s deadline to drop out are already underway.

The standing record is 15 candidates who filed to run in the 1999 race for mayor in which incumbent Willie Herenton won a third term.

Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton Jr. began meeting with several rivals in the upcoming election last month. He said he never asked candidates to get out of the race, but instead told them the issues he planned to run on.

So far, Wharton’s campaign has drawn the endorsements of would be candidates Jim Strickland and Edmund Ford Jr., both city council members, as well as Ford’s father – former council member Edmund Ford Sr. Strickland is a Wharton campaign co chairman as is Memphis school board member Tomeka Hart, who briefly considered the race.

The field that emerged from Thursday’s filing deadline includes a county mayor – Wharton, the city’s Mayor Pro Tempore, two city council members, two former city council members, four former candidates for Memphis mayor, two Memphis school board members and a former Shelby County Commissioner. In some cases, a single candidate fits into several of those categories.

Carol Chumney, for instance, is a former city council member who finished second in the 2007 race for mayor.

Chumney is just starting a full campaign schedule that has included a turn at a church fashion show as well as shaking hands with workers this week on the night shift at the Diesel Recon plant in North Memphis.

One of the final entrants in the race was restaurant and bar owner Silky Sullivan. He arrived at the Election Commission Thursday in a white Rolls Royce wearing a white suit.

“When you see this white suit, you know I’m coming at you,” Sullivan said.

He got into the race after attorney Charles Carpenter said The Pyramid should be demolished and the site cleared for future uses if the city can’t reach a deal for Bass Pro Shops to develop the structure. Sullivan believes The Pyramid should be given to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of its campus.

There was the normal confusion in the immediate aftermath of the filing deadline. There were varying candidate totals for the field as election commission staff went through the qualifying petitions line by line to match those signing with voter registration rolls including the address voters used on the petition and the address listed on their voter registration. As usual, several candidates came up short.

And one got back with his petition three minutes after the deadline. Daniko Flowers, a construction worker, was not allowed to file his petition. He only had 18 signatures on the petition anyway.
