Attorneys for all of the sides in the schools consolidation court case have a Friday, Aug. 12, deadline that will set the stage for the next crucial part of the landmark court case.

5. Schools Funding Compromise Must Overcome Distrust -

The city of Memphis and the Memphis City Schools system have some time – but not a lot – to see if a very tentative school funding compromise can grow roots.

But downtime has never been the friend of either side in the three-year dispute that began when the then-newly elected council cut funding to MCS in April 2008.

6. MCS-City Council Talk Money At 4 PM -

10. Lighting the Fuse -

Memphis voters have 22 words to weigh as they decide what is to become of Shelby County’s two public school systems.
“Shall the administration of the Memphis City School System, a special school district, be transferred to the Shelby County Board of Education?”
The words seem inadequate to cover what a “yes” or a “no” vote means after a state law and other factors changed the terms of a vote already scheduled for March 8.
Voters for schools consolidation may be against special schools district status but for letting some of the six suburban towns and cities try to go with their own municipal school system.
Voters may be against school consolidation and against special school district status if it includes taxing authority for the county school board, albeit with tax approval required by the Tennessee Legislature.
Some voters may see it as a way of ending reforms driven by MCS superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash. Others may see it as a way of ending Shelby County Schools board chairman David Pickler’s dominance of that school system.
School consolidation advocates are still urging citizens to vote “yes” and school consolidation opponents are still urging citizens to vote “no.”
“The lay of the land has changed, so will people consider the lay of the land or what? That statement stands. It’s on the ballot and everyone knows what it’s designed to do,” said Memphis City Council chairman Myron Lowery. “This occurred after the question was put on the ballot. If someone wants to make that stretch, they’re jumping over a lot of hurdles. This was not in place when this was put on the ballot.”
Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr., along with Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell, sought a transition period even as political positions began to harden. He doesn’t see what’s in the law as a transition period.
“The way it’s structured, there’s every incentive not to reach an agreement. It looks to me like it falls off the face of the earth,” Wharton said. “There was nothing in there that states where do you go if at the end of this (the planning process) there is nothing resolved.”
State Sen. Mark Norris, R-Collierville, disagrees.
“The state has a compelling interest in assuring that the administration of schools is properly discharged,” Norris wrote in an op-ed piece for The Memphis News last week. “To do otherwise defies common sense and common decency.”
Pickler said if voters approve the question, he will quickly move to assemble a team to work on the transition. It’s a transition that Pickler has always emphasized will be controlled by the county school system. That is one point on which the attorneys seem to agree.
“Clearly we understand that this issue is not about educational outcomes,” he said during a WKNO forum last week. “We still do not believe that creating a mega district … doesn’t do anything to improve education.”
MCS board member Tomeka Hart, at the same forum, countered “We do here as an economic issue,” a reference to the University of Memphis study showing special schools district status could cost MCS half of the county property tax base it relies on for funding. “It’s time to rewrite all of this,” Hart concluded.
Here is the timeline – to date – of the ongoing schools showdown:

11. Anti-Incumbency Takes Down Another Congressman -

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The political shooting-star otherwise known as anti-incumbency fell on Alabama, taking down a first-term congressman who switched from Democrat to Republican just last December.

12. Compromise 101: Who’s going to fund the schools? -

In the year he’s been head of the Memphis school system, Superintendent Kriner Cash has been virtually unflappable.

Since the Memphis school board hired him in July 2008, Cash has doggedly pitched a detailed plan for the school system’s renewal with dozens of specific goals in a well-traveled PowerPoint presentation.

13. The Daily News Picks Up Six Statewide Awards -

The Daily News has won six awards from the University of Tennessee-Tennessee Press Association. The awards ceremony was held Friday in Chattanooga.

The honors include two first place awards among Group 2 newspapers in Tennessee, or papers with combined weekly circulations of 5,001-15,000 readers.

14. Green Paper Trail Leads to Ware -

It hasn’t been a good week and a half for City Council member Barbara Swearengen Ware.

She celebrated her birthday last week with a custom she picked up from a caterer delivering the council members their lunch at City Hall. During a break in committee action, as reporters and other council members wondered about several $1 bills pinned to her red jacket, Ware explained that she had never heard of the custom before but was game for it.

15. Lobbyists Increase Efforts To Blunt Payday Ordinance -

17. ‘C’ Word Taboo in MCS Budget Squabbles -

Memphis City Schools officials spent this week distancing themselves from a funding compromise with the city of Memphis that the school district’s lawyer agreed to in a private round of dealmaking with city and state education officials.

18. MCS’ Wallet Not the Only Thing On the Line -

Memphis City Council member Harold Collins addressed his colleagues at Tuesday’s meeting with what seemed like good news.

“Attorneys for the city and Memphis City Schools have met today to determine if there was any common ground to compromise on the funding issues,” said Collins, referring to the standoff between the city and the school district over the district’s budget.

19. School Board Pleads for Funding – Again -

Since Friday, members of the Memphis City Schools Board of Education and the Memphis City Council have continued haggling over the council’s decision earlier this month to withhold more than $70 million from the school district’s budget.

20. Declining Values Could Spark Tax Increase -

One of the byproducts of the credit crunch that's pummeled the national economy over the past year is the way it's led people to take a closer look at assumptions once thought to be unassailable.

One example of those ideas is home values, on the whole, can rise indefinitely. Memphis and Shelby County are preparing to deal with the reverse of that notion.

26. 'Stall' Tactics in Play During Efforts To Regulate Strip Clubs -

The Herenton administration's proposal for regulating strip clubs by permitting them to keep serving beer got off to a rocky start last week before the City Council.

It passed on the first of three readings after council members nearly refused to add it to the agenda. Such a refusal would have left the proposal to the new council that takes office in January, since there are only two more council meetings left in 2007.

27. Council Passes Buck On 'Disgusting' Warehouse Proposal -

A familiar and decidedly unwelcome name confronted City Council members on Tuesday's agenda. And the council reacted by sending the project for a warehouse near Memphis International Airport back to the Land Use Control Board (LUCB).

28. Flood Zone? -

When Willie and Rena Jeffries bought their home in 1995, the property directly behind theirs was being used as a horse pasture.

In the years since, a major developer has turned the pasture into a subdivision - and turned their 2,600-square-foot, two-story home into a major disaster area, they allege in a lawsuit filed last week in Shelby County Chancery Court.
