1. Old Favorites
- Saturday, February 07, 2015
A few years ago, Tandy Wilson, chef and owner of City House, offered this tip about earning his respect as a diner: Don’t tell me you’re a foodie, he said, tell me you’re a “regular.”
We were having a conversation about overuse of the term “foodie,” and how even though it can be a well-meaning label to show a person’s interest in a particular topic, it also can carry the snobbish weight of those who salivate over the trendiest dishes – and then salivate over their keypads to type a Yelp review after just one visit.
2. Music City Christmas
- Saturday, December 06, 2014
In years past, Carl Haley has offered his Grand Avenue transportation passengers the customary Christmas lights tour packages – about the same as other tours in Nashville – with a cruise by Opryland and a trip to a few choice, heavily decorated neighborhoods.
3. Not Closing on Time? Little Issues Can Lead to Big Snags
- Saturday, November 01, 2014
Here is a scary Halloween tale: Many real estate transactions do not close on the actual date specified by the legally binding contract.
This is not a recent phenomenon and has occurred since the time buyers required funding by third parties to purchase homes.
4. Asking for Moon Might Leave You Grounded
- Saturday, September 13, 2014
There were 3,226 closings in August, Greater Nashville Association of Realtors numbers show, up 4.6 percent from last August. It could have increased 24.6 percent if there were more listings.

8. Commission Debates Pay for County Offices
- Wednesday, December 04, 2013
Shelby County Commissioners appear to have another deadlock similar to the one that spilled over from 2011 into 2012 on drawing new district lines for the 13-member body.
This time the issue is what to pay those holding six countywide elected offices once all of the votes are counted next August in the county general elections.
9. College Football Notebook
- Friday, October 04, 2013
College football is played from coast to coast in this great land, but it’s still a small world. The proof? When USC fired head coach Lane Kiffin, who had bolted Tennessee for Southern Cal, assistant Ed Orgeron (Ole Miss head coach from 2005 to 2007) became USC’s interim coach.
10. Commission Votes Down Second Amendment Gun Resolution
- Tuesday, May 07, 2013
Shelby County Commissioners voted down a resolution Monday, May 6, that would have backed the idea of state legislators and county sheriffs across the state “nullifying” federal gun control laws they consider unconstitutional.
11. Commission Receives Schools Financials
- Monday, May 06, 2013
Shelby County Commissioners formally get the financials of Shelby County’s two public school systems Monday, May 6, in an action that is not expected to generate much debate.
But the financial statements for the fiscal year that ended June 30 is another step along the path toward the formal merger of both school systems effective at the end of the current fiscal year.
12. The Next Steps
- Monday, December 03, 2012

14. Midtown Utopia
- Monday, September 24, 2012
Of Memphis’ tales of humble beginnings, of which there are many, the fluctuating renaissance of the Cooper-Young neighborhood is certainly compelling throughout.
The area has cycled from its 19th century roots to 1970s crime and neglect to its present-day status as one of the largest historic districts in the Southeast, a magnet of all ages and walks of life. All thanks to individuals and organizations that wouldn’t settle for sub-par quality in their tiny town within the bustling Bluff City.

16. Social Media, Mobile Tech on the Rise for Weddings

NEW YORK (AP) – As her grandfather sat pleasantly perplexed at her wedding, Lauren Barnes reached into the recesses of her strapless white gown, whipped out her iPhone and accepted her groom's Facebook relationship change to "married."
17. Priming to Improve Your Business
- Tuesday, August 02, 2011
Knowledge is stored in an associative manner. In plain English, that simply means pieces of information that somehow relate to each other are linked in your brain. For example, if I say the word Graceland to most longtime Memphis residents, it will probably trigger a series of linked thoughts: Elvis, Lisa Marie, airplane, stone fence, graffiti, Whitehaven, tourists, and so forth and so on.
18. Beer Pairing Events Brewing in Memphis
- Friday, July 08, 2011
Local chefs and restaurateurs are hoping to show more people that beer pairs up just as well, and in many cases better, with fine food as wine has traditionally been known for in the past.
Steve Barzizza, sales manager at Southwestern Distributing Co., has helped to arrange many of the beer pairing nights at various restaurants around town.
19. Fan Friendly
- Tuesday, September 07, 2010
The Mid-South Fairgrounds may be the most unlikely landscape for a civic project that has succeeded in catching the eye of skeptical Memphians.
But it isn’t the architectural renderings of water-colored citizens strolling in the glow of a possible future that has our attention. It’s what Memphians don’t see when they drive by the fairgrounds that has their attention.
20. Venice Tile Founder Emphasizes Variety, Selection
- Monday, March 01, 2010
David Gicking, a tile setter, opened Venice Tile & Marble Showroom in 1988 because he was bored with the bland, generic materials available at most local stores.

21. DataDot Technology Could Change Property Protection
- Thursday, May 15, 2008
Property-related crimes in Shelby County seem to be down this year, according to a report recently issued by the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. The same goes in the city, as Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin has said that so far this year, overall crime in the city is down 7 percent.
22. Biotech Players Recognize 'Survival of Fastest' Idea Using Aerotropolis
- Wednesday, January 02, 2008
While talk of biotechnology in Memphis evokes images of brilliant people peering down microscopes, when it comes to job creation, a better image is the FedEx Express sorting hub. Thousands of times each day FedEx package handlers load boxes of surgical instruments, medical devices and tissue samples to be delivered around the world. Elsewhere in the hub, others are off-loading the same things for processing in Memphis.
23. 'Close-Knit" and 'Well-Planned' Become Suburban Mantra
- Monday, March 20, 2006
A good title for a book about real estate development in Shelby County might be "The Rise and Sprawl of the American Dream."
One chapter could touch on how well-manicured suburbs like Germantown and Collierville have become magnets for growth. Another could show how those growth patterns have carried a few unwanted side effects, such as cookie-cutter subdivisions and retail strip centers.
