Do you ever feel like you’re struggling to take your career to the next level? If so, you’re not alone. Many of the job seekers I speak to each day are struggling with similar feelings. They have not received the achievements they expected to get by now. Perhaps they’re coming up on an important birthday, such as 30 or 40 or 50. They haven’t received the awards they would have hoped, or the plum promotion they were counting on. They’re making less money than they had planned for.

32. Last Word: Opening Day at the Polls, Court Square Sighting and Different Moonlight -

For some candidates summer heat is a campaign tradition that they thrive on. Governor Ned McWherter was one of those candidates. But for most of those running for political office in an election year, it amps up the grueling pace immeasurably, especially the pace of a statewide campaign in a state whose northeastern most point is closer to Canada than it is to Memphis. That is the atmospheric setting for Friday’s first day of the early voting period. And a look at the past turnout for this election cycle shows the statewide primaries on the ballot will likely tell a good part of the story.

39. Last Word: No Fifth, The Cordova Triangle and Cheese Festival in South Main -

I am not going to count this as a fifth early voting plan because whether Calvary Episcopal Church would be available for the last two Saturdays of early voting was still up in the air Tuesday. And Wednesday the word was final on Calvary which seems fitting in all things church. The result is what I will optimistically call the final version of early voting sites and their hours and days is a slate of 27 sites that is far from uniform in hours. Early voting begins Friday at five of the 27 sites.

I have a question. I really do. Why have there been so few formal studies on curiosity and its immense power to create value in the for-profit and non-profit sectors?

While no one can predict the future, we can prepare for potential opportunities and challenges. Taking time with board members, volunteers, staff and community leaders can help your organization consider future possibilities. Some changes are likely, others unknown. Think about what data you may need to review to help you understand potential changes in demographics, economics, government programs, law, policy, the arts and the environment. There’s a lot to consider. You can’t think of everything, but you can build future thinking into the life of your organization.

Very dark skies Monday afternoon over parts of the city. I could be off in this but I think there is a connection to these sudden summer rain showers that we need to consider.

64. Last Word: Inland and the Bus, Early Voting Shuffle and Multi-Family Moves -

When City Hall announced last month that it was about time to rebid the sanitation contract Inland Waste has with the city, the mayor’s office went out of its way to say that Inland could be among the bidders for the contract serving about 35,000 households in Cordova and into East Memphis. Nevertheless, the company that owns Inland Waste didn’t like the tone of this and sent us an email accusing the Strickland administration of throwing it “under the bus.” And the administration hit back.

Ray’s Take: Back in 2013, I turned down $1.5 million dollars that I was awarded by a Nigerian prince.

I completely forgot to send my personal information to the “lottery office” so unfortunately I didn’t get all those winnings.

71. Back to the Future -

The Memphis Grizzlies’ decision to move on from Zach Randolph and Tony Allen before last season was, if not on time, definitely not made too early.

76. The IRS shrinks the tax form, but not the workload -

The Trump administration may deliver on its promise to reduce a commonly used tax form to postcard size, but it does not shrink the workload for many Americans filling out their taxes.

A draft copy of the new 1040 income tax form given to The Associated Press by a staffer on the Ways & Means Committee shows that the form will be reduced from two full pages to a double-sided half page. But the legwork to claim many popular deductions and provide other critical information has been moved to one of six accompanying worksheets.
