8. Titans Will Struggle If Mariota Misses Time
- Friday, October 6, 2017
The Tennessee Titans season might have flashed right before their eyes this past Sunday.

11. I Recommend a New Novel
- Friday, September 1, 2017
They read us like a book. When I was growing up, The Book Shelf was about where the northwest corner of the Kroger in Poplar Plaza is now. It smelled like books – not the library smell of tomes and the weight of knowledge, but the smell of brand-new information, shiny new possibilities, a world of discovery on a personal scale.

13. Titans Will Have Best Roster in More Than a Decade
- Friday, July 7, 2017
The folks at Pro Football Focus recently ranked the Tennessee Titans’ roster No. 3. Not third in the AFC South. Third in the entire NFL. This means one of two things: Either Pro Football Focus has gotten hold of some bad videotape or the Titans finally have some really good players.
14. Titans Poised to Break Free of Weak AFC South

15. Robinson Gives Mariota Weapons for Success
- Friday, May 5, 2017

16. Titans Draft About More Than Physical Skills
- Friday, May 5, 2017
It’s easy to look at the Tennessee Titans’ 2017 draft and conclude general manager Jon Robinson drafted for need.

17. How Did Vols Not Win More With This Talent?
- Friday, May 5, 2017

18. Back-to-Back Dak? Dobbs Shines at Senior Bowl
- Friday, February 3, 2017

Prescott, the former Mississippi State quarterback, caught the eye of the Dallas Cowboys with his MVP performance in the 2016 Senior Bowl. The Cowboys chose Prescott in the fourth round (No. 135 overall pick) of the 2016 NFL Draft, and it proved a fruitful pick.
19. Turning the Page
- Saturday, January 28, 2017
When a bookstore decides to close its doors for good, the moment isn't always so immediate or possessive of the clean finality that comes with shutting a book at the end of the story.
In the case of The Booksellers at Laurelwood, it is a long goodbye. These final weeks of a liquidation sale that will stretch into February – the culmination of a decision that the store’s finances have become untenable – have meant the slow unwinding of a 32-year-old bookstore that’s closing up shop the same way you fall asleep, fall in love, get old – gradually, then all of a sudden.

- Saturday, October 17, 2015

25. Maclin Announces For County Clerk
- Tuesday, April 7, 2009
Wrestling promoter and television personality Corey Maclin in the latest Democratic candidate to announce his intention for the 2010 county-wide elections.
Maclin told members of the local Democratic Executive Committee Monday that he will be a candidate in the 2010 Democratic primary for Shelby County Clerk.
Maclin, president and chief executive officer of Maclin & Associates Advertising and Promotions, told The Daily News he had considered running for the post held by Republican Debbie Stamson in 2006 but passed on the race. Stamson beat Democratic nominee Otis Jackson by 478 votes in the 2006 general election. Jackson ran in 2008 for General Sessions Court Clerk as the Democratic nominee and upset Republican incumbent Chris Turner.
Monday’s meeting was the first of the new executive committee since it was elected at a county convention earlier this month and elected attorney Van Turner Jr. as the new party chairman. They followed up by electing attorney Desi Franklin, who was instrumental in Turner’s victory over rival Jay Bailey, as first vice chair of the party. Cherry Davis, who had been first vice chair was elected second vice chair.
The only contested selection was for party secretary. Reginald Milton, another Turner ally, was the committee’s pick over Del Gill, a Bailey ally. Barbara Williams was reappointed party treasurer by Turner.
