6. Obama Carries Shelby, Cohen Over Flinn and Two Tax Hikes Defeated
- Wednesday, November 07, 2012
President Barack Obama carried Shelby County in unofficial Nov. 6 election returns as his Republican challenger Mitt Romney took the state’s 11 electoral votes.
Voter turnout in the most popular election cycle among Shelby County voters was 61.9 percent, about the same percentage as four years ago. But the 371,256 voters is fewer than 2008 when more than 400,000 Shelby County voters cast ballots.

10. Anthony Siracusa Joins Rhodes College
- Wednesday, January 12, 2011
Anthony C. Siracusa has been hired as Community Service Coordinator in the Bonner Center for Faith and Service at Rhodes College.
Education: Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, in history, Rhodes College, 2009.
What was attractive about working at Rhodes? I was compelled by the Rhodes Vision of graduating students with the ability to translate academic study and personal concern into effective leadership and action in their communities and the world. In the words of former Bonner Foundation President Wayne Meisel, I’m passionate about Rhodes’ interest in moving from a world where we work to feed the poor to a world where soup kitchens are not necessary because we’ve defeated hunger.
What do you hope to accomplish as community service coordinator? Through the Kinney Program (the college’s campus-wide service-based learning umbrella), I hope to unite students working on a similar issue (e.g., hunger and homelessness or hospitals and health care) for regular meetings and the development of an issue-based action plan to guide current and future community engagement efforts. My hope is that Rhodes students graduate with a deep connection to the Memphis community.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? When I founded Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop in June of 2002, I never thought there would be a day when I worked in the shop and people would introduce themselves and say, “Hi, I’m so and so. Who are you?” To me, Revolutions now stands as a Memphis institution outside of any direct connection to me.
What do you most enjoy about your work? I enjoy wrangling with the issues. I enjoy debating the merits of particular courses of action or root causes for the problems that surround us, and I feel fortunate to have the chance to listen to brilliant insight from the people I meet every day. I love building community with people through meaningful work, and I enjoy being with people who hope to move our city and this world from potential to reality.
