1. Museum Milestone -

When the National Civil Rights Museum formally reopens Saturday, April 5, it will be with the “breaking” of a ceremonial chain at the new entrance to the building that was once the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968.

2. South Main’s New Life -

The history of the South Main Historic Arts District is as colorful as its present-day users, an alternating rhythm of sorts in Memphis’ songbook.

The area has oscillated from its ritzy suburban roots of the 1800s to the industrial era ghost town of the 20th century and now to its current status as Downtown’s flourishing arts and boutique district and the subject of some $100 million in investment. And it’s all due to stakeholders who braved the status quo in distinguishing the southern end of the Central Business District as that funky place with an indescribable vibe.

3. ‘So Many Positives’ -

Tuesday, Jan. 15, would have been the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 84th birthday.

In the almost 45 years since his assassination at the Lorraine Motel, the South Main district and Downtown as a whole have certainly seen its ebbs and flows. But 2013 has the potential to be one of the years in which the civil rights icon would be most proud of the area’s revitalization.

4. Applying Pressure -

On Super Bowl Sunday, a group of 20 people huddled near a set of about as many tents on the Civic Center Plaza – the part of the Main Street Mall that is home to City Hall as well as the county, state and federal buildings.

5. Young at NCRM Monday for Wreath-Laying Ceremony -

Former Atlanta Mayor and Congressman Andrew Young is in Memphis Monday for events marking the anniversary of the 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

6. One Of A Kind -

Really unique is really not. Memphis is.

Nothing is really unique. Unique is unique. If there is more than one of it, it isn’t.

Memphis is et up with unique.

The Peabody is unique. Two hammered duck hunters dump their live decoys in the lobby fountain. One is actually the hotel manager, and instead of getting him fired, that drunken prank makes the place world-famous. Almost 80 years later, ducks are still in that fountain by day, live in an air-conditioned penthouse by night, march back and forth twice a day to a packed crowd, and are on TV as much as Daffy and Donald. Unique.

7. Sharpton’s Peabody Tab Grows With Amended Complaint -

The Rev. Al Sharpton’s nonprofit civil rights group has an unpaid tab that’s now six figures long. It stems from an event at The Peabody in 2008.

Almost $20,000 has been added to the original bill for a high-profile national convention Sharpton’s group brought to Memphis, according to court documents the hotel’s attorneys filed this month.

8. Peabody Sues Sharpton Group for $88K -

The South’s Grand Hotel is trying to collect a grand sum of money it claims is owed by the Rev. Al Sharpton’s nonprofit civil rights group.

The Peabody hotel has filed a lawsuit in Shelby County Circuit Court against Sharpton’s National Action Network seeking payment of almost $70,300, plus more than $17,000 in attorney’s fees and other costs. The lawsuit, which puts the total close to $88,000, was filed Tuesday, according to The Daily News Online, www.memphisdailynews.com.

9. Events -

10. With Clinton Back on Trail, McCain Visit Up Next -

When New York Sen. Hillary Clinton told her husband a day or so ago that she'd be making a campaign stop in Memphis this week, the former president and Arkansas governor said he was jealous about being unable to come along.

11. Sound Files of King Assassination on Register's Web Site -

The Memphis Police Department dispatcher is calm, barking out orders even as the city outside begins to descend into chaos. It's shortly after 6 p.m. on April 4, 1968, and unconfirmed reports have begun trickling in over the radio that something terrible has happened at the Lorraine Motel in Downtown Memphis.
