95. Le Bonheur Prepares For Grand Opening -

When people get to visit the new Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center next month, they will walk inside a $340 million hospital that is a bastion of innovative medical technology, a tower of environmental efficiency and a museum of fine art.

But the hospital’s most important role will be helping children throughout the Mid-South, said Meri Armour, president and chief executive officer of Le Bonheur.

“We don’t just view children from when they are just in the doors of this hospital,” she said. “We view children as our responsibility out there in the entire community.”

Le Bonheur collaborates closely with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.

“In the children’s hospital world, everybody across the country is really excited about the new Le Bonheur because there hasn’t really been a new children’s hospital built in a long time,” Armour said. “There have been lots of additions, but not a brand-new, from-the-ground-up hospital. We’re sort of setting a really important stage for the rest of the country right now.”

A week of festivities has been scheduled around the hospital’s grand opening on June 15. The festivities include a parade, a consecration ceremony and open house tours.

The 255-bed facility will be the first children’s hospital to have a 3T intraoperative MRI, which provides high-resolution images before, during and after operations. That way, patients never have to be moved and doctors can even tap live webcasts during surgeries.

All the hospital’s rooms, including those in the intensive care unit, will have sleeping accommodations for up to two family members.

“Parents are welcome,” Armour said. “They are partners for us. We want them to be there. We think they know their child better than anybody else. We want them to be there all the time and help us and let us help them.”

Family amenities include family rooms on every floor as well as a family resource center where parents can catch up on business with desktop computers or research their child’s illness with the assistance of an educator.

The 12-story structure was designed by FK Architects and built by Skanska USA Building Inc. The construction of the hospital and its opening will have a $3.7 billion impact on the Memphis economy over a five-year period, according to the hospital.

Patients will be moved into the new building in September. Then Le Bonheur will begin tearing down two-thirds of the old hospital and renovating the remaining portion. With the construction of the new hospital, Le Bonheur will add about 170 new health care positions.

David Rosenbaum, vice president of facility management for Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, said the project stayed on track except for a few changes to accommodate the latest technological devices.

The hospital was built to LEED environmental standards.

“Our central energy plant is truly state of the art,” Rosenbaum said. “All chillers are designed so that when the temperature gets to be 50 degrees, we turn off our cooling equipment and use outside air.”

The museum will be filled with art, from the elevator lobbies to the common areas to the patient rooms.

Linda Hill and Dianne Papasan, two volunteers, have recruited the artists.

This week, several artists were installing their works. MaryJo Karimnia worked on a mural in the playroom of the outpatient clinic waiting area, while Greely Myatt put sculptures on a wall.

The sculptures seemed to float like clouds, allowing the viewer to imagine shapes of balloons and ice cream cones.

“It’s all recycled material,” Myatt said. “Some of it is from Libertyland.”

Hospital officials were awaiting the arrival of a kinetic sculpture by Yvonne Bobo that will go outside on the landing.

“It will have flowers that move like windmills,” Rosenbaum said. “As the wind moves the flowers, there are butterflies that flap their wings. There are caterpillars that crawl on the flower stems. There’s a lily pad that opens and closes with a frog in it.”

The hospital will also have its own theater, a project that Le Bonheur employees financed, where children’s movies will be shown on their release dates.

97. Ford Wins Democratic Mayoral Primary -  

Interim County Mayor Joe Ford became the Democratic nominee for mayor in the August county general elections Tuesday night.

And the August sheriff’s race will be a contest between Democrat Randy Wade and Republican Randy Wade.

All three were among the winners in Tuesday’s low turnout county primaries.

Ford, who was appointed interim mayor in December, beat County Commissioner Deidre Malone and General Sessions Court Clerk Otis Jackson in the Democratic primary. He will face Republican Mark Luttrell who had only token opposition in the Republican primary from perennial contender Ernie Lunati.

Luttrell has raised more money than all three of the Democratic primary contenders combined and began running television ads in the last week runup to election day.

The final unofficial totals in the Democratic mayoral primary are:

Ford 20,360 57%

Malone 12,916 37%

Jackson 2,168 6%

The pair of primaries for Sheriff featured eight candidates, seven of whom either currently work for the sheriff’s department or are past employees. Only Reginald French, in the Democratic primary was not a former or current department official.

Wade was the 2002 Democratic nominee, losing to Luttrell who is leaving as Sheriff after serving two terms. French was the Democratic nominee in the 2006 elections.

Oldham is Luttrell’s chief deputy, the number two position in the department. He is also a former director of the Memphis Police Department.

The final unofficials totals in the Republican primary are:

Bill Oldham 13,821 48%

Dale Lane 7,981 28%

Voters in the primary elections decided to return six Shelby County commissioners to new four year terms with Tuesday’s results. They also elected six new commissioners. The winner of the thirteenth commission seat will be decided on the August general election ballot in a contest between district 5 Democratic incumbent Steve Mulroy and Republican challenger Dr. Rolando Toyos. The winner of the match up will determine whether the commission remains majority Democrat or goes majority Republican.

Mulroy easily defeated Jennings Bernard in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

Republican incumbent Mike Ritz ran unopposed as did new Democratic commissioner Walter Bailey.

In the remaining ten contests, the primaries decided who gets the seats since no one ran in the opposing party’s primary.

The most hotly contested contest among the commission races was for District 4 Position 1. Outgoing Probate Court Clerk Chris Thomas beat John Pellicciotti, appointed to a commission seat last year but running for a different position in the same district. Jim Bomprezzi, the former mayor of Lakeland, was the third contender in the contest.

The final unofficial totals in the Republican primary:

Thomas 7,631 52%

Pellicciotti 4,871 33%

Millington businessman Terry Roland claimed the third position in the district that takes in all six of Shelby County’s suburban towns and cities.

Roland beat George Chism to take the seat Pellicciotti was appointed to but opted not to run for in deference to Roland.

Heidi Shafer, an aide to outgoing County Commissioner George Flinn, claimed Flinn’s District 1 Position 2 seat over Albert Maduska.in the GOP primary.

District 1 incumbent Republican Mike Carpenter easily beat businessman Joe Baier.

In the Democratic commission primaries, Melvin Burgess claimed Malone’s District 2 Position 3 seat in a field of six contenders. His closest contender was Reginald Milton. Burgess, a city school system audit manager, had run for the seat before. He brought in 54 percent of the vote.

The other hard fought Democratic commission primary saw Justin Ford, son of the interim mayor, claim his father’s District 3 Position 3 seat.

Ford beat Edith Moore, a retired IBM executive, whom the commission appointed to the seat after the elder Ford became mayor.

The final unofficial vote totals are:

Ford 7,342 66%

Moore 3,822 34%

Democratic incumbent commissioners Henri Brooks, Sidney Chism and James Harvey were all re-elected over primary challengers.

The county-wide primaries for seven clerk’s positions saw the return of former Criminal Court Clerk Minerva Johnican 16 years after Republican challenger Bill Key took her job. Johnican decisively beat Ralph White and Vernon Johnson in her first bid for office since the 1994 defeat. She will face Republican Kevin Key, the son of Bill Key in the August general election.

The final unofficial vote totals are:

Johnican 16,381 51%

98. Philly Company Works to Stabilize Apartment Community -

Eight months after Philadelphia-based Resource Real Estate bought the Wyndridge Apartments in Hickory Hill, the company’s property management arm, Resource Residential, has made significant progress on a $3.6 million overhaul of the complex.

99. Biz Licenses Down From Year Ago -

Business licenses issued during the first quarter of this year plunged 31 percent from a year ago – a steep drop that could be an anomaly.

An unusually high number of permits was issued during the first quarter of 2009 compared to the same period in 2010.

Desperation and misrepresentation could be factors, according to local experts.

Jeff Jacobs, manager of the business tax division of the Shelby County Clerk’s Office, said he thought several individuals may have obtained permits in the first quarter of 2009 just to claim federal income tax deductions.

However, Mark Taylor, an adviser at the Tennessee Small Business Development Center in Memphis, said many more people were looking to start their own businesses during that period.

“I’m sure for the first quarter of last year there was a big surge in business licenses,” Taylor said. “Everybody was desperate. I think people were just scrambling.”

A total of 1,590 business licenses were issued during the first quarter of this year, according to The Daily News Online, www.memphisdailynews.com.

That compares to 2,316 in Q1 2009.

Taylor said fewer people are inquiring about opening businesses now because of the tight credit market.

Banks are reluctant to loan money for startups.

“Money is still tight,” Taylor said. “We’re not seeing any real big shift on that yet.”

That trend could be changing, said an official from the research division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

David C. Wheelock, a vice president at the Federal Reserve who is an adviser on financial markets, in a recently published essay said, “Business lending may be poised for a rebound.”

His essay was based on quarterly surveys of banks by the Fed concerning lending activity.

“The percentage of respondents reporting tighter standards has declined in recent surveys,” Wheelock wrote. “In the January 2010 survey, no banks reported tighter standards on loans to large- and medium-sized firms,

while 5.5 percent reported that they had eased terms somewhat.

“This was the first survey by the Fed that reported a net percentage of banks easing terms for loans to large- and medium-sized firms since 2007:Q2.”

However, he also noted that 3.7 percent of banks had tightened standards.

Wheelock found a silver living to this number, pointing out that it was the lowest percentage of bank tightening since the second quarter of 2007.

During the prolonged credit crunch, many people have financed startup endeavors mostly from their own pockets.

Keith and Jill Forrester, the owners of Whitton Farms in Arkansas, are about to expand their operation into Downtown Memphis with the Trolley Stop Market at 704 Madison Ave. Keith Foster said they’ve borrowed only $10,000 and drawn on savings for the rest.

“It’s been a hurdle,” he said. “We’ve just been able to piece it together here and there.”

The couple had hoped to have the farm-fresh market and restaurant open by now. The opening depends on how quickly some interior renovations can be completed, such as the installation of a kitchen venting system.

The business will hire 10 to 12 people initially, he said. It could open by the end of April or in May.

In Memphis, lending by banks to small businesses remains tight, Taylor said.

“Here recently, the biggest surge of interest I’ve had in small businesses has been due to the Hickory Ridge Mall reopening,” he said.

“It sounds like the mall may make a goal of it. At least one client quoted a low rental per square foot. They obviously are making some deals.”

The Hickory Hill North ZIP code of 38115 was where the most business permits were issued during the first quarter. A total of 93 permits were issued.

The Oakhaven/Parkway Village ZIP code of 38118 had the second most with 92, followed by the Bartlett ZIP code of 38134 with 85.

100. Credentials Often Mean Little in Today’s Job Search -

Most job candidates emerge from universities and graduate schools with a sense of insulation from unemployment, but the current recession has affected blue and white collars alike.

Now degreed professionals with decades of job experience have found themselves firing off resumes into the vacuum of cyberspace with few ideas of how to make themselves stand out.
