1. Changing Landscape -

It’s been confusing from a distance.

The formal groundbreaking for Shelby Farms Park’s $70 million “Heart of the Park” improvements, including an expansion of Patriot Lake, came the same week last month the Memphis City Council voted to delay for one year the city’s portion of funding for the Shelby Farms Parkway.

2. University of Memphis Players Garner Conference Honors -

5. Funding Cut Has MATA at Crossroads -

The city’s bus system isn’t out of the woods yet.

The Memphis Area Transit Authority’s long drive through a wilderness of record ridership for the trolley system, years of operating funding cuts, withering criticism and millions of dollars in capital funding showed signs this week of continuing for some time.

6. Bus System Funding Woes Continue -

The same week that the Memphis Area Transit Authority got $469,040 in city funding restored by the Memphis City Council, it lost $430,000 in funding from the state of Tennessee.

And as the transit authority board approved some service changes that restored some of the service that was to be cut, one board member suggested exploring filing for bankruptcy reorganization.

7. Made in Memphis -

Memphis’ geography is limited to roughly 300 square miles, but its identity stretches beyond the city limits, resonating to the far corners of the globe.

The city’s brand has obvious cornerstones, such as its place in the nation’s cultural topography. But setting aside those no-brainers, like the rock ‘n’ roll innovator whose mansion in Whitehaven still attracts gawkers from around the world, a lot of what makes Memphis’ story is the story of what’s made in Memphis.

SINGULAR PERFORMANCE. The White Station Class of 1966, the year ahead of mine, had two Academy Award winners – one you’ve heard of and one you haven’t.

That was some class. Physicist, gray matter repository and best-selling author Alan Lightman was in it. Federal judge and arbiter of public education’s future in Shelby County Hardy Mays was in it. John Vergos, former courageous city council maverick and scion to Rendezvous rib royalty, was in it. Academy Award-winning actress Kathy Bates was in it.

13. Eggs And Elmo Take Me Back -

PERFECT REMINDERS. I’m reminded. He stared at the target, and on this particular night it seemed larger than ever. He got his signal – same as before – bring the heat. As soon as he let it go, he knew that’s the best I got. Nobody’s touching it.

22. Overton Square Developers Ready for Next Step -

It’s crunch time for the future of Overton Square, the 10-acre Midtown landmark where a new retail development anchored by a big-box grocery store has been proposed.

The square’s owners have agreed to delay for 60 days their official request to begin knocking down several old buildings along Madison Avenue. That demolition would pave the way for a roughly 53,000-square-foot grocery store and several smaller retail buildings.

Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton and all 13 City Council members who begin a new term of office next year met at the Rendezvous this week for ribs with a side order of good intentions.
