When the Tennessee Valley Authority board voted in August to build a new power plant in Southwest Memphis, it was a decision based on factors larger than the power needs in Memphis.

7. Democratic Divide Widens in Election Results -

Democrats have retained their seven-vote majority on the new single-district Shelby County Commission that takes office Sept. 1.

That and the re-election victory of Democratic incumbent Cheyenne Johnson in the race for Shelby County Assessor of Property were the only bright spots for a divided local Democratic Party that lost every other countywide partisan elected position to Republicans in the Aug. 7 county general election, just as they lost every countywide position to Republicans four years earlier.

Whether it will prove to be a telling remembrance or not, news of the Grizzlies selecting guard UCLA shooting guard Jordan Adams with the No. 22 overall pick in Thursday night’s NBA Draft was largely met with mild disdain, sweeping indifference and a dash of tilt-your-head curiosity.

NEW YORK (AP) – Dollar stores are feeling the pinch from mounting financial pressures on low-income shoppers.

15. Grizzlies Ice Heat in ‘Huge’ Win -

A day earlier, the Grizzlies had talked a like a team that had misplaced its identity.

Memphis City Council member Lee Harris is challenging Democratic state Sen. Ophelia Ford in the August primary for District 29, the Senate seat held by a member of the Ford family since 1975.

17. Tigers Season Sits Somewhere Between Respectable, Not-Quite-Great -

So, how best to categorize the 2013-2014 season for the Memphis Tigers basketball team?

Great? Not even coach Josh Pastner has settled on that word.

Respectable? It was much more than that. You may be tired of hearing Pastner say it, but it is true the Tigers stayed in the national rankings until the final Associated Press poll right before the NCAA Tournament.

18. Tigers Season Ends On Common Theme -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

19. Tigers Season Ends on Common Theme: ‘Underachieved’ -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

20. Tigers Don't Feel Like 'Cinderella' vs. 1 Seed Virginia -

21. Tigers Hang to Beat GW in NCAAs -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Michael Dixon Jr. once thought his college basketball career was done.

You know the story. From Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year at Missouri to being exiled after sexual assault allegations that never became more than that, never turned into actual charges.

22. Tigers Look to Ace Next Tourney Test -

Memphis made the Final Four. Seriously, you can stop worrying about the first game this Friday against George Washington University.

23. Timid Play Knocks Tigers Out of Tourney -

24. Nichols’ Rookie Award Comes With Accolades -

First, there was the debate. Would Briarcrest star Austin Nichols really stay home and play for the Memphis Tigers? Or would outside offers, including ones from Duke, Kansas and North Carolina, be too good to pass up?

25. Time for Winning -

Through a 31-game regular season and an 18-game grind in the American Athletic Conference, the University of Memphis never lost back-to-back games. It’s a notable achievement.

But now that the single-elimination season has started, it also is an irrelevant statistic going forward unless the Tigers have the misfortune to lose their first AAC Tournament game Thursday, March 13, at FedExForum against Connecticut, and then lose their first NCAA Tournament game a week later.

26. Tigers Seniors Hope to Script Memorable Last Chapter -

The five Memphis seniors talked about their college basketball careers and they sounded older, wiser. And although nobody used this word, maybe a little scared about what might, or might not, come next.

Any in-the-moment analytical evaluation of the Tigers’ chances after Louisville forward Montrezl Harrell slammed home a dunk for an eight-point lead with 4:46 left in the game would have been dire.

28. Score-Watching Grizz Can’t Lose Sight of Opponents -

Two hours before the Grizzlies played the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at FedExForum, Memphis coach Dave Joerger talked about the last loss – at Charlotte – the game ahead, and that aggravating play that recently invaded Memphis living rooms, including Joerger’s own.

29. Roland ReElected At Filing Deadline, Two Countywide Races Set For August -

30. Tigers Pledge Focus With Lesser Foes on Tap -

Absorb nothing. Or as players such as Tigers guard Chris Crawford like to say, don’t let it “soak.” Meaning win or lose, don’t dwell on it.

31. Memphis Finally Finding Touch From Deep -

When the Memphis Tigers missed 15 of 17 threes against Southeast Missouri State, the players and coach Josh Pastner said not to worry. And they had a 77-65 victory in that game to back them up.

But two weeks later, they again went 2-for-17 from long range at FedExForum against Cincinnati (11.8 percent, for the record) and wound up on the wrong end of a 69-53 score.

32. Saint Blues Celebrates 30th Birthday with Events, New Guitars -

Memphis-based guitar maker Saint Blues Guitar Workshop is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2014 and is marking the occasion in part with the introduction of several new guitar models.

33. Tigers' Life in ‘Real’ Conference Off to Tough Start -

36. Examining the Tigers Entering January -

The 17th-ranked Tigers came through the first 10 games of the season – the first chapter, if you will – with an 8-2 record overall and a 1-2 record against ranked opponents. They suffered a lopsided loss to Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla., beat the Cowboys on a neutral court, and had what NCAA bracket analysts would term a “good loss” by two points to Florida at Madison Square Garden.

37. No Need to Spin Tigers’ Nice Start -

Every special season has critical mileposts along the way. The Tigers’ first came in Stillwater, Okla., where, again, they weren’t up to the challenge of a ranked opponent in Oklahoma State. Thus, the Tigers and their coach returned to harsh criticism in Memphis and waited for the next opportunity.

38. NBA Uses More Ways to Prove ‘Numbers Don’t Lie’ -

Walk up to an ATM, and you’re on camera. Walk into a convenience store, and you’re on camera. Walk onto an NBA court during game time, and you’re not only on camera but every movement you make – or don’t make – will be tracked, sifted, analyzed.

39. Time for Tigers to Back Up Words -

Looking back at a few quotes from the once 11th-ranked Tigers at their preseason media day, in light of the embarrassment that was their recent 101-80 loss to No. 7 Oklahoma State:

Senior guard Geron Johnson: “One (free-throw) attempt a game last year, I mean that’s terrible if I’m supposed to be some tough guy.” He shot one free throw – and missed it – in 24 minutes in Stillwater.

40. Guards, Balance Key Tigers’ Tuneup -

An Austin Nichols dunk off a turnover and a Shaq Goodwin assist; a Joe Jackson driving layup; a Geron Johnson “wow” backwards dunk on a fastbreak off a Jackson steal and assist; and a Michael Dixon jumper off another Jackson steal and assist.

42. Tigers Find Different Rhythm This Season -

A year ago in this exhibition matchup, the University of Memphis trailed at the half and beat Christian Brothers University by 11 points.

The Tennessee Valley Authority has approved more than 250 renewable energy projects for the year 2013 across the multi-state region it covers.

52. New Tigers Prepare for Year-Round, 24/7 Attention -

Technically, they are next season’s Tigers basketball team. Truthfully, University of Memphis basketball is never out of season.

This being the summer, talk from practice sessions at the Finch Center is mostly for the good. People are excited that coach Josh Pastner finally appears willing to really use the press. People are encouraged by the early positive reports on freshman big man Austin Nichols (Briarcrest). Tiger Nation is, well, so glad. Not to mention excited for the school to begin play in the new American Athletic Conference after finally exiting downtrodden Conference USA.

53. Newest Tiger Dixon Answers Reporters’ Questions -

60. Several Paths for School Funding Possible -

The most important number at a weekend Shelby County Commission budget retreat was not the $145 million in new funding the countywide school board has asked for.

61. Events -

63. Nothing Too Absurd With These Grizz -

Trade 40 percent of your bench to Cleveland, play the Lakers the next night, and everything will be just fine. The Fakers are so bad they might not beat El Segundo Middle School at their gym.

But so what? Teams that make trades to avoid the luxury tax – small-market beggars – can’t be choosers. So the Grizzlies graciously accept the 106-93 victory, marvel at the 27-14 record and No. 4 spot in the Western Conference standings, and do all they can do to keep it going.

64. Atlantic Track Grows Local Operations -

Depending on your perspective, it was lavish praise that spoke to the Tigers’ potential still there for the realizing and great NCAA Tournament victories still there for the taking.
