5. Patterson’s Legacy In Local Politics Looms Large -

J.O. Patterson Jr. was the city’s first African-American mayor. That’s the lead biographical item from any comprehensive history of Memphis political history to come.

9. High-Profile District Court Judge Lets Lighter Side Show -

Complicated, high-profile cases that frequently carry far-reaching significance have a knack for winding up in the lap of U.S. District Court Judge Hardy Mays.

The most recent hot potato to be launched his way is the messy legal fracas stemming from the Memphis City Schools’ surrender of its charter in December. A court hearing before Mays appears set for Monday on the future of an appointed countywide school board.

10. Ware’s Political Future in Balance -

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. opened the city’s newest auto inspection station Monday.

11. Swearengen Ware Faces Council Suspension -

A presidential campaign in which Memphis was largely overlooked by the contenders was nevertheless a campaign thousands of Memphians joined via the Internet.

14. The Daily News, The Memphis News Win Regional Journalism Awards -

15. Green Paper Trail Leads to Ware -

It hasn’t been a good week and a half for City Council member Barbara Swearengen Ware.

She celebrated her birthday last week with a custom she picked up from a caterer delivering the council members their lunch at City Hall. During a break in committee action, as reporters and other council members wondered about several $1 bills pinned to her red jacket, Ware explained that she had never heard of the custom before but was game for it.

16. Cooper’s Report Date Delayed to April -

He was supposed to report to the U.S. Penitentiary in Florence, Colo., Tuesday.

19. Cooper Sentenced: Six Months in Jail, Six of House Arrest -

Former Shelby County Board of Commissioners member Joe Cooper was sentenced Wednesday to six months in prison and six months of house arrest for helping drug dealers launder their drug money.

Cooper’s sentence could have been closer to three years under federal sentencing guidelines.

One of the potential witnesses in this week’s federal corruption trial of former Memphis City Council member Edmund Ford remains a lightning rod for criticism among current council members.

Thomas Jr. They did so because there is a prevailing mood among council members that he does not play by the rules in his dealings with the city.

22. Jury Pool Expanded, Questions Thorough For Coming Ford Trial -

The corruption trial of former Memphis City Council member Edmund Ford Sr. will begin next month with a jury pool of 105 people.

26. Unethical Conduct Discussion Next on Charter Commission Agenda -

And what the council hasn't defined will be defined by public reaction and political will.

27. Kustoff Resigns District Atty. Post -

28. Despite Recent Drama, Charter Commission Faces Full Plate -

An emotional discussion on term limits received a lot of attention at this month's meeting of the Memphis Charter Commission.

33. Ethics Code Still Needs Help, Wilkins Says -

At year's end, the Memphis City Council had left the proposition of disciplining city office holders accused but not convicted of wrongdoing in the hands of city voters.

The council approved a November 2008 referendum that proposes a charter amendment to permit the recall of council members.But the attorney for the Memphis Charter Commission, Ricky Wilkins, is researching the idea of some kind of legal sanction that is more than a censure but doesn't go as far as a removal from office.

34. Cooper Sentencing Delayed Until May -

Prosecutors have filed a motion in federal court asking that the sentencing of former Shelby County Commissioner Joe Cooper, previously set for Thursday, be delayed about four months.

Federal prosecutors asked for a 120-day continuance so Cooper can help them continue to build a bribery and corruption case against Memphis City Councilman Edmund Ford. Cooper, once a fixture at City Hall where he lobbied the council on behalf of clients he represented, is expected to take the witness stand at Ford's coming trial.

35. Countdown Begins For Rickey Peete -

Former Memphis City Council member Rickey Peete now has until Jan. 17 to report to the federal prison at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala.

36. Peete's Prison Report DaySet for Jan. 3 -      Former City Council member Rickey Peete has been ordered to report to prison Jan. 3 to begin serving a sentence of four years and three months on federal corruption charges. But his attorneys are seeking to delay that un

39. Moving Day Approaches For Nine Council Members -

Nine Memphis City Council members will begin a transition starting next week. Their pictures will go from one side of the City Council chambers at City Hall to the other side.

43. Thompson Indicted for Extortion and Mail Fraud -

A federal grand jury Tuesday indicted former Shelby County Commissioner Bruce Thompson on one count of extortion and three counts of mail fraud.

The public corruption charges that name no other defendants came with just as many questions as answers – questions about possible involvement by others. U.S. Attorney David Kustoff said the grand jury probe is continuing but he wouldn’t be more specific.

44. Thompson Indicted for Extortion and Mail Fraud -

A federal grand jury today indicted former Shelby County Commissioner Bruce Thompson on one count of extortion and three counts of mail fraud.

49. Toothsome Ethics Ordinances to Sharpen by Year-End -

Shelby County government hasn't printed the forms that are a basic part of its new ethics ordinance. Memphis City Council members are still debating what could be the final piece of the city's ethics array.

50. New Kid on the Block -

61. City Ethics Ordinance Comes Into Play -

66. Did MLGW Play Favorites in Ford Fiasco? -

It started in December, one day after Memphis City Council members Edmund Ford and Rickey Peete were arrested on federal bribery charges.

67. Billboard Developer Thomas To Appear in Court Today -

To say that local billboard magnate William H. Thomas Jr. has a bone to pick with the Memphis and Shelby County Board of Adjustment (BOA) probably is an understatement.

After that eight-member body - which meets periodically to hear appeals related to zoning decisions - declined recently to give Thomas the special permission he needed to build two billboards, the businessman filed suit in Shelby County Circuit Court. And though both Shelby County and the City of Memphis are listed as defendants in the lawsuit, Thomas directed most of his vitriol at the BOA.

68. 'A First-Class Lady' -

For Madeleine Cooper Taylor and her late husband, Dr. Harold Taylor, it surely says something about their standing in the community that both were nominated on separate occasions - and under extraordinary circumstances - to fill seats on the Memphis City Council.

71. Self-Appointed Watchdog Posts Campaign Contributions To Web Site -

The words of FBI special agent My Harrison at a press conference about the latest public corruption scandal in Memphis resonated with the force of a shotgun blast.

72. Graft and Strippers - and Hope, Oh My! -

Memphis might not be the most progressive city in the world, but it's certainly never boring. At least not if you work in the media or keep up with reports.

On a slow day, you might come across an armed robbery or routine carjacking, but sometimes, the news runs in thick subterranean veins. A little digging, some artful mining, skill and instinct, and suddenly you're awash in emeralds and rubies, headlines and front-page play.

73. On And On It Goes: Word has it that Thomas Jr. won't show at next council meeting -

Federal prosecutors dropped their bombshell a few days before the Memphis City Council met Dec. 5. Criminal complaints implicated two councilmen and a well-connected lobbyist in a money-for-votes scandal that, in at least one instance, apparently benefited wealthy landowner William H. Thomas Jr.

75. Stiff Competition, High Stakes Drive Billboard Industry -

76. The Plot Thickens -

Shortly after losing the Democratic primary for a seat on the Shelby County Commission this past summer, Memphis businessman Joe Cooper left town to unwind and visit family members.

Tanner, nevertheless decided to combine his family trip after the campaign with a little business.

77. When The Pieces Fit -

On the surface, a real estate deal proposed this summer that involved several acres of vacant land in South Memphis probably didn't appear out of the ordinary.

The planned development, lobbied for by real estate consultant Joe Cooper, called for a mini-storage facility and an off-premise billboard sign, among other features, to be built at a site on Steve Road, not far from Interstate 240.

82. CCC Initiative Seeks to Train New Developers -
