93. Bobby Meeks Innovates With a Sense of Purpose -

“When you’re looking for a new outcome, you’ve got to change some things up,” says Bobby Meeks as he walks a loop of the GroundFloor @ ServiceMaster, an innovation hub opened last month in the former Peabody Place mall.

94. Graceland Prepares for August Test of Expansion -

The Guest House at Graceland has been sold out for Elvis Week in August for quite a while, with bookings even before the Whitehaven hotel-resort opened last October.

And most of the events marking the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death are slated for Elvis Presley’s Memphis, the entertainment complex across Elvis Presley Boulevard from the mansion that opened in March.

95. Haslam Touts IMPROVE Act At Interchange Opening -

It looked like another day at the Interstate 40-240 interchange Wednesday, July 19, from the roof of a building by the state’s tallest interchange.

Inside the building tucked away in a residential area off White Station Road, a bank of video monitors on the wall of the local offices of the Tennessee Department of Transportation showed the same – cars and trucks moving smoothly there and elsewhere on the county’s interstate system.

96. Last Word: Closing the Door, Midtown Rents and Red West's Many Roles -

It didn’t take the Shelby County Commission very long Wednesday to close the door on its budget season – about 20 minutes in the day’s special meeting to approve a county property tax rate of $4.11 on third and final reading. That’s not a quick up or down vote. And it took just a bit longer because there is still some discussion about whether this was a reduction in the tax rate or a tax cut in the sense that a homeowner in Shelby County would understand the term.

98. Will a Sugar Deal With Mexico Affect US Treat Prices? -

NEW YORK (AP) – Are Americans getting a raw deal on sugar prices?

President Donald Trump called a recent agreement on sugar with Mexico a "very good one" for both countries. But companies that make candy, cakes and other foods containing the sweetener say it will lead to Americans paying more than they already do.

99. After-School Job Not For Everyone -

A reader recently wrote to me with an interesting question. He was seeking advice on how his teenage daughter might find an after-school job for her high school years. His logic makes sense. He wants her to learn discipline and to gain a work ethic. These are great qualities for a young student to develop. Although I respect this method of getting there, I also suggested an alternative path.

100. The Redbirds’ Dream Season is Not Being Duplicated in St. Louis -

On Monday, July 17, in Oklahoma City, the Memphis Redbirds pulled off their third win in their last at-bat as Patrick Wisdom hit a ninth-inning home run in a 5-3 victory. It was their seventh straight win and their 15th in their last 17 games.
