- Friday, February 16, 2018

2. Last Word: Eureka Education, Confederate Monuments in Court and Dillon Brooks
- Friday, January 26, 2018
Supermarkets are hard. That is the tag line in every discussion about getting a supermarket or grocery store for a given part of town that doesn’t have one. And once a new supermarket goes up somewhere else, there is inevitably word that a competitor or two is going to build nearby. The discussion always includes the mandatory recitation of the 3 to 4 percent profit margin stores operate on, which even knowledgeable critics of the decisions about where to locate and not to locate stores acknowledge is accurate.

5. Bench Power
- Friday, November 10, 2017

- Friday, November 3, 2017
As calculated decisions go, it seemed like a good one. Probably, it was a smart decision despite the unhappy result.

- Monday, October 23, 2017

8. Last Word: Alexander on Trump, Gibson Sells and Chandler Home Sales Numbers
- Friday, October 20, 2017

9. Dillon Brooks Injects Hope, Excitement into Grizzlies’ Season
- Friday, October 20, 2017
