13. School Board Questions Processes -

The process that countywide school board members are using to filter school merger recommendations from the transition planning commission looks a lot like the commission itself.

The group of senior administrators from both school systems even has a similar name – the transition steering committee. And like the transition planning commission, it will explore hiring consulting firms to advise it.

14. More Work Follows Schools Plan Approval -

The plan for a consolidated countywide public school system isn’t finished just yet despite last week’s vote by the schools consolidation planning commission.

22. ‘In This Together’ -

For some Memphis consumers, it’s a completely natural impulse to go out of the way to keep from going far away when there’s money to spend.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The nation's labor unions saw another steep decline in membership last year, even as the economy showed signs of recovery and job losses slowed.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that unions lost 612,000 members in 2010, dropping the unionized share of the work force to 11.9 percent from 12.3 percent in 2009. That follows a loss of 771,000 workers in 2008, continuing a steady decline from the 1950s when more than a third of workers belonged to unions.

28. DOT Fires Back After Airline Tarmac Delay Backlash -

30. Sillerman Leaves CKX -

Robert Sillerman has resigned as chairman and chief executive officer of CKX Inc., the company that owns 85 percent of Elvis Presley Enterprises.

Sillerman's resignation from the two positions and from the company's board of directors is effective immediately. It was announced in a filing by the company Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Sillerman said in a press release that came with the SEC filing that he quit to pursue other interests including a possible acquisition of CKX. Sillerman had hoped another affiliated company, 19x, would acquire CKX. But the acquistiion stalled and was called off because of national economic conditions.

As recently as last month, he emphasized CKX remained committed to the Graceland overhaul involving an entertainment district with hotels and nightclubs around the mansion where Elvis Presley lived.

City leaders have already begun planning for public improvements in the area.

--

The first indication of changes to come along Elvis Presley Boulevard between Brooks Road and Shelby Drive will be surveyors working in the area as it begins the annual tourism buildup to August, when Elvis fans commemorate the icon’s death.

The planning that is just beginning will eventually complement a new plan for an overhaul of Graceland by CKX, the company that owns 85 percent of Elvis Presley Enterprises.

CKX CEO Bob Sillerman has proposed leaving Graceland as it is, but relocating the plaza where visitors board buses from the west side of the street to the same side as Graceland. The current plaza area would be developed as an entertainment district with restaurants, hotels and other attractions.

Sillerman proposed a general outline of his plans for Graceland in 2007. But CKX has indicated since then in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that those plans could change at least in their timing because of the economy.

Sillerman has met with city officials and insisted he remains committed to transforming the area. Based on that, the Mayor A C Wharton Jr.’s administration has come up with $250,000 to begin planning for the improvements to Elvis Presley Boulevard.

Wharton wants to have city commitments ready by July 1.

“We’re trying to get a running start on this,” city engineer Wain Gaskins told a crowd of more than 200 people last month at the Whitehaven Community Center. “We are not very far into the process.”

The surveyors will take the city’s planning a step further. Gaskins said consultants will begin this month talking with business owners along the corridor about possibly moving utilities. Underground power lines are one possibility to eliminate power lines and poles.

The Rev. Lester Baskin of Middle Baptist Church was among those listening intently in the community center gymnasium and looking over renderings that Gaskins said are just ideas and not necessarily what the final plan will look like.

Baskin said he favors coordinated commercial development along the boulevard.

“I have been in this area for about 40 years and I would like to see it become more and more,” he told The Daily News. “I know that whoever comes to Memphis, you have to come to Whitehaven because the airport is in Whitehaven. FedEx is Whitehaven. UPS is Whitehaven. There are so many other places.”

Elvis Presley Boulevard is also part of a highway with state and federal designations. Because of that, the city hopes to draw $2 million in state and federal funding toward the public project. No city funding is available for construction because there is no plan.

The first phase would be the boulevard’s southern end from Shelby Drive to Kraft Road. Phase two is from Craft to Winchester Road. And the third phase is from Winchester to Brooks Road.

Gaskins said the Interstate 55 interchange, north of Brooks, needs an overhaul but is a “separate project” the city will tackle at some later date. The Tennessee Department of Transportation is doing an interchange modification study, he added.

“It’s too much to handle in one bite,” Gaskins said of including the interchange in the boulevard project.

42. Binghampton: A Model Project -

The city's model design project for the Broad Avenue area represents a major opportunity for the residents and businesses of Binghampton.

However, redevelopment efforts, new artist owners, an active business association and a new elementary school all offer hope that the revitalization of the Broad Avenue area can take hold and improve the surrounding Binghampton community.
