Since Joe Steffner opened his own commercial real estate firm 10 years ago, the industry veteran has had a front row seat to some wild changes in the industry.

3. Local Firms Benefiting from Cycling, Walking Paths -

For years Memphis was labeled as a backwater when it came to walking trails and bike lanes, showing up on list after list highlighting the worst cities for pedestrians and cyclists.

6. Apple CEO Dares to be Different From Steve Jobs -

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – "Think different" became Apple's creed during the late Steve Jobs' reign as CEO. Now, chief executive Tim Cook is embracing the idea while making decisions that would have seemed crazy to his fabled predecessor.

7. Breaking Through -

If it was just an abstraction or a mere theory, it wouldn’t have a definition in the dictionary or a website. It would simply be another urban myth.

But with a few keystrokes you can go right to www.glassceiling.com. And the dictionary definition of “glass ceiling” is tangible – “an unfair system or set of attitudes that prevents some people (such as women or people of a certain race) from getting the most powerful jobs.” In fact, you can almost see a woman stuck in middle management, briefcase in hand, staring up at that glass ceiling and wondering: Where do I find the ladder that gets me from here to there?

8. Yellen to Investors: Expect Continuity at the Fed -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen sought Tuesday to reassure investors that she will embrace the approach to interest-rate policy that her predecessor, Ben Bernanke, pursued before he stepped down as chairman last month.

9. ‘Intertwined’ -

In 2007, the Grizzlies were no longer a novelty in Memphis. They also were no longer a playoff team. Rather, they were a punch line lost in the expansive blue and gray shadow of the University of Memphis and a fast-talking operator/coach named John Calipari.

18. Glacial Job Creation Equals Glacial Stimulus Reduction -

This has been the weakest job recovery on record. The 175,000 new jobs created in May did slightly exceed analyst estimates, but also slightly trailed population growth. The percentage of the U.S. adult population with a job equals 58.6 percent. This number hit 67 percent back in 2000. Adjusting this ratio for the “retirement effect” to only include those aged 25 to 54 increases the rate to 76 percent, but it still hasn’t budged for three years and is 5 percent lower than it was in 2007. This cannot be explained by retirees. Our job creation machine is malfunctioning.

19. Median CEO Pay Rises to $9.7 Million in 2012 -

CEO pay has been going in one direction for the past three years: up.

The head of a typical large public company made $9.7 million in 2012, a 6.5 percent increase from a year earlier that was aided by a rising stock market, according to an analysis by The Associated Press using data from Equilar, an executive pay research firm.

20. Memphis in May Seeks Local Swedes for Festival -

The 37th annual Memphis in May International Festival is a salute to Sweden, a country whose climate differs greatly from the host town but perhaps has some parallels in its rich history.

“The joke about Sweden is that nobody’s really from Sweden except for the Vikings and they’re long gone,” said Diane Hampton, executive vice president of Memphis in May. “But they all came there from other places. It’s kind of a melting pot of cultures as well – and a cold melting pot.”

21. Hollywood Feed Expands, Renews Local Leases -

25. Why Geithner's Treasury Leadership Proved Divisive -

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama has saluted the outgoing Timothy Geithner as one of the best U.S. Treasury secretaries ever. He's surely been among the most contentious.

Not since the Great Depression had an administration inherited so many grave financial threats at once. To many, Geithner deserves credit for helping steady the banking system and helping restore investor confidence. Yet his toughest critics say Geithner's policies consistently favored big banks over ordinary struggling Americans.

26. Senate Bill Would Extend Deposit Insurance Program -

WASHINGTON (AP) — To prevent a possible run on banks at the height of the financial crisis four years ago, Congress expanded government insurance for certain bank deposits to include totals above the usual $250,000 limit.

While millions turned on their televisions to watch the 90-minute showdown, a smaller but highly engaged subset took to social networks to discuss and score the debate as it unspooled in real time.

31. Midtown Utopia -

Of Memphis’ tales of humble beginnings, of which there are many, the fluctuating renaissance of the Cooper-Young neighborhood is certainly compelling throughout.

The area has cycled from its 19th century roots to 1970s crime and neglect to its present-day status as one of the largest historic districts in the Southeast, a magnet of all ages and walks of life. All thanks to individuals and organizations that wouldn’t settle for sub-par quality in their tiny town within the bustling Bluff City.

46. Redbirds Reconnection -

One of baseball’s enduring maxims is that anytime you go to a game you’ve got a chance to see something you’ve never seen before.

47. Market Hinges On Pols’ Action -

Politics Returns Last week, politicians grabbed headlines and moved markets. First, stimulator-in-Chief Ben Bernanke goosed markets to multi-year highs by pledging his continued devotion to easy money. Thankfully, he has learned that “conversational easing,” simply talking about quantitative easing, achieves the desired result without the inflationary hangover of the act itself. Rates fell and equities rose as fears of premature rate hikes abated. The Fed has been using the microphone as effectively as the printing press lately … good Central Bankers!

48. 18-Cent Tax Hike Advances in Council -

A one-time, 18-cent city property tax hike was approved by the Memphis City Council Tuesday, March 6, on the second of three readings.

72. GOP Uses Budget, Other Tools to Sap Financial Law -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Congressional Republicans are greeting the one-year anniversary of President Barack Obama's financial overhaul law by trying to weaken it, nibble by nibble.

Wary of attempting to dismantle the entire statute and being portrayed as Wall Street's allies – banks are among the nation's most unpopular institutions – GOP lawmakers are attacking corners of it. They can't prevail because they don't control the White House or Senate, but they may be able to force some compromises on agency budgets, pressure regulators and influence some of Obama's nominations.

73. Desperately Seeking Heroes -

Hero Searching Markets have fallen significantly since April. A value-induced rally last week failed during Fed Chairman Bernanke’s presentation at a banking conference in Atlanta.

However, he also made no mention of further “rescue” policies, thereby implying that investors must learn to walk again on their own. With the effectiveness of QE2 unclear, the political pathway for QE3 is blocked.

74. Local Companies Working to Navigate Economic Straits -

79. ‘Big 3’ Reflect Local Banking Scene -

When I was in New York last week, attending a three-day conference on Italian wine, my one major meal outside the hotel was at Morandi, an Italian restaurant at Waverly Place and Seventh Avenue in Greenwich Village. This is a sole venture into Italian food for restaurateur Keith McNally, whose French-inspired outposts, from Odeon in TriBeca to Balthazar in SoHo to Pastis in the Meatpacking District, not only defined casual Gallic dining below 14th Street but helped to establish their neighborhoods as destinations.

82. Long History Follows Paulette’s to Harbor Town -

Georges Falls has seen many changes come upon Overton Square since the entertainment district’s heyday in the 1970s and ’80s, but one of the most startling changes is one he is bringing himself.

Paulette’s, his Continental restaurant that has been a flagship, even a beloved attraction near Madison Avenue and Cooper Street since 1974, is moving to Harbor Town, about as far west as you can get from Midtown and not fall into the Mississippi River.

83. Bankruptcy Trends Shift, Local Numbers Drop -

Bankruptcy attorney Jimmy McElroy, one of the Memphis court’s top filers, has noticed a recent change in local bankruptcy trends.

84. Apartment Optimism -

Apartment owners and operators in the Memphis market forecast a bright 2011, boosted by a continued weak homebuying landscape and a lack of new multifamily product coming online within the market.

“2010 was certainly an improvement for the multifamily sector – both in operations and in sales – over 2009, and we expect to see more of the same next year,” said Blake Pera, senior vice president of CB Richard Ellis Memphis’ multifamily division. “Most operators experienced comfortable revenue growth throughout the year, and there is some positive momentum in continued stable occupancy and concession burn-off next year with the lack of new supply hitting the market.”
