1. Grizz Want NBA to Know They’re the Real Deal -

It was early. How else do you define an NBA game played on Nov. 17?

But it was important, the game seeming to hold value beyond the single win (which went to the Grizzlies) or the one loss (which went to the Houston Rockets).

2. Grizzlies Find Respect Hard to Come By -

Perhaps it was a just coincidence. On the day that the results of the annual NBA General Managers’ survey were announced, ESPN was in Memphis for its only scheduled visit of the season.

Or perhaps this was no coincidence at all.

3. Time is Now -

For now, the Memphis Grizzlies’ window of opportunity is open.

With four straight playoff appearances in the immediate past, there is no reason to believe the Grizzlies won’t get there again. But it’s not about just getting there, not about playing a tough seven-game series, as the Grizzlies did in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs against Oklahoma City last season, only to come home after a dispiriting Game 7 loss.

4. Lee Joins MOGA’s DeSoto Office -

Dr. Daniel Lee has joined the DeSoto office of Memphis Obstetrics & Gynecological Association PC. Lee provides comprehensive women’s health services, including office gynecology, obstetrics and surgical management, to women of all ages.

5. AP Survey: Fed's Outlook Correct but Not Solution -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Economists appear to be of two minds about the Federal Reserve.

They agree with the Fed that the job market still isn't healthy. Yet the latest Associated Press survey of economists finds that most fear the Fed will wait too long to raise interest rates and thereby risk stoking inflation or creating asset bubbles.

6. Bull Market -

From his office on the 21st floor of the Raymond James tower Downtown, John C. Carson Jr. has a sweeping view of the Mississippi River as it rolls by the Bluff City.

The phone rings and rings at the Memphis Crisis Center – 19,000 times in 2013, or 2.2 times every hour, 52 times a day, 365 days a year.

Of the 19,000 calls logged last year, 1,301 – or 3.6 per day – were from people talking about killing themselves.

8. Cardinals Acquire Lackey in Trade -

The St. Louis Cardinals continued efforts to strengthen their starting rotation on Thursday by trading for veteran right-hander John Lackey.

10. Johnson Joins Other Former Grizzlies in Toronto -

Once upon a time, the Grizzlies moved from Vancouver to Memphis. Now, they appear to have an unofficial branch office in Toronto.

11. LeBron’s Contract: Best Bargain in Sports -

The money can drive you crazy, if you let it. Each day in Memphis we’re reading about “blue flu” and the city’s ongoing financial crisis.

With that as our local backdrop, it’s easy to become disgusted with the LeBron James sweepstakes that sort of looks like a steel cage (no, make that bank vault) death match between glitzy Miami/slick Pat Riley and hardscrabble Cleveland/thin-skinned Dan Gilbert.

12. Johnson Joins Other Former Grizz in Toronto -

Once upon a time, the Grizzlies moved from Vancouver to Memphis. Now, they appear to have an unofficial branch office in Toronto.

17. Grizzlies Ice Heat in ‘Huge’ Win -

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

18. Avoiding Heartache -

The Grizzlies had just watched the Golden State Warriors score 14 straight points to turn a seven-point deficit into a 100-93 victory.

21. Fans Welcome ‘Grindfather’ Back -

Decades from now, it might be the first story Tony Allen tells. The night Allen returned to the FedExForum court for the Grizzlies, after missing more than a month with a wrist injury, and when he checked into the game he received a standing ovation.

22. Hobbled Grizzlies Won’t Go Down Without Fight -

Two years ago, Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph returned from a torn MCL in his right knee and essentially finished out the season on one leg.

In other words, Randolph walked – or hobbled – in the high tops that center Marc Gasol now wears as he plays with a brace on his left knee after returning to the court following an MCL sprain that kept him out of 23 games.

23. Grizz Look at Final 30 With Hope for Strong Finish -

As the Grizzlies took their leave from FedExForum, having won their last home game before the NBA All-Star break, forward James Johnson looked toward the next night’s game at Orlando.

29. Time a Friend to Grizz -

Sometimes, the NBA season feels too long. It can stretch on and on like a West Texas highway. Or the Grammy Awards.

34. NBA Playoffs Serve as Reminder: Players More Valuable Than Coaches -

Game 6 of the NBA Finals was a lot of things, including epic and unbelievable and an instant classic. But it was also something else: a vivid reminder that players matter more than coaches.

But the 371,256 voters is fewer than 2008 when more than 400,000 Shelby County voters cast ballots.

48. The Magic Of Mental Images -

As it turns out, it appears that your brain does not know the difference in real or imagined events. That’s why some golfers practice by imagining golf shots, some tennis players practice by imagining tennis shots and other athletes practice by imagining doing whatever their chosen sport requires them to do well.

Work Experience:
As an art teacher for Memphis City Schools for 38 years, I taught art classes to grades 7 through 12 at Gragg High School, Lincoln Junior High, Gragg Alternative High School, Overton Creative and Performing Arts High School, Corry Junior High and Westwood Junior and Senior High School.
Favorite quote:
“As you think so shall you become.” – James Allen
What drew you to Gallery Fifty Six?
I had been looking for a gallery to represent me, and I would drive by Gallery Fifty Six every day on the way home from teaching. I noticed that work was being done to transform the interior into a sophisticated, fine-art gallery, and I was impressed with the results. I decided to present my work to them, and I was accepted as a gallery artist. As time went on, I became the assistant curator and was recently promoted to curator.
As curator, what will your job entail?
My job as curator will be to schedule and hang shows; manage the gallery; design printed materials; seek new artists; advise customers and sell art; maintain the mailing list; work with public relations; and promote the gallery.
What do you most enjoy about painting?
I love the process of creation, first of all. I love working with paint and colors. I get enjoyment out of making something that other people will like, too. It gives me great satisfaction to sell a painting, knowing that someone thought enough of my work to buy it.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments?
Becoming curator of Gallery Fifty Six has definitely been one of my greatest professional accomplishments. In addition, last year marked a great year for me when an art dealer from New York purchased nine of my paintings. I also won “Best in Show” in the Memphis Arts in the Park Senior Juried Exhibition and also in the Mid-South Teachers Juried Art Exhibition at The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.
