When folks talk about investing, they are usually referring to something for the long term: saving for retirement, stashing away money for a newborn’s college fund, that sort of thing.

A close one for the best team in the NBA Monday evening at the Forum but the Grizz lose only their second game of the young season to the Hornets 104 – 99. Some of you went. Some of you watched.

18. ‘Trey’s Company’ Captures Spirit of the Summer of ‘82 -

19. Changing the Dream -

In driveways and on playgrounds all across America, kids limited only by what their imaginations can conjure launch basketballs toward hoops. Hanging in the balance are the fate of fictitious NCAA Tournament title games and NBA Finals Game 7s.

20. No-Sweat Market -

If the whole concept of “fair trade” seems a bit too remote in time and space, then Jackie Nerren has a recommendation that might allow you to better understand: one sip at a time. “Black Gold” is a 2006 Indie film about coffee growers in Ethiopia, where coffee accounts for 67 percent of the country’s foreign exports. In the U.S. and many other fully industrialized nations, coffee is big business.

Frank Roberts has a passion for recapturing pieces of history. And while a 65-year-old Quonset hut on the outskirts of Tobey Park may not be have the elegant art deco accents of Crosstown Concourse, it certainly captures the essence of its post-war industrial beginnings the same way the former Sears building did in the 1920s.

That red Pontiac Fiero. Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin had one back in the day.

Shelby County Books from Birth has merged with Porter-Leath in a move that Porter-Leath vice president for development Rob Hughes said should be “seamless.”

34. From Ownership to the Roster, Grizzlies Full of Questions -

Chandler Parsons’ knees. There are two well-documented concerns.

37. The Stars – Ferguson, Miller, Norvell – Lead Memphis into the Spotlight -

Early one clear September morning, Overton Square is still half-asleep, the parking lot next to Hattiloo Theatre empty save a few cars.

40. City’s Ire Raised By Stadium Droughts -

45. Rick-Rolling -

46. Opioid Committee on Right Track, Obstacles Remain -

Smyrna Police Chief Kevin Arnold can remember the first time his detectives brought a heroin case to him three or four years ago.

49. Titans Begin Season With Questions At Wide Receiver -

For most of their two decades in Tennessee, the wide receiver position has been a glaring hole for the Titans.

50. Making History -

Fittingly, the Memphis Redbirds ended their history-making season with a victory. On Labor Day in Colorado Springs, the Redbirds beat the SkySox 5-4 in 10 innings.

51. Raising The Ceiling -

Here’s the thing about expectations: You either embrace them, turning them into some divine combination of daily bread and rocket fuel, or they crush you.

56. Season 3: Time for QB Mariota To Become a Star -

If Year 1 was a good start and Year 2 was another step in the right direction, what should we expect of Marcus Mariota in Year 3?

How about a playoff berth for the team he quarterbacks.

Granted, there are many other factors in play that will determine the success, failure or return to mediocrity of the Titans in 2017. Has the defensive backfield been successfully retooled? Can the offensive line remain one of the best in the NFL? Will the additions at wide receiver pay the expected dividends?

Was he still dedicated to the Grizzlies, to seeing this franchise become the best it can be?

It’s championship or bust for Tennessee senior tight end Ethan Wolf.

Bowl victories are nice. So are nine-win seasons. But Wolf wants a lot more in his final season with the Vols.

The wide receiver and the defensive back are exactly the same – until that point when the ball is in the air and then they are totally different.

The wideout wants to catch passes, run free, score touchdowns, and prance and dance. The DB wants to knock down passes, intercept passes, deliver teeth-jarring hits, and posture and strut.

74. The King's Castle: Graceland, Whitehaven open 40th anniversary Elvis Week -

76. Job-Seeking Anxiety Is Universal -

By now, we can all agree: The job search process can be a grueling one. If you’re actively looking for a job, you know what I’m talking about. You apply online and never hear back. Or, maybe you go through rounds of interviews that lead nowhere.

77. Vandiver Growing Customer Relationships at Agritech Firm The Seam -

The Seam, a technology firm founded by agribusiness companies that specializes in commodity trading and management systems, has added Rex Vandiver in a customer development role.

In the past week, two interesting things have happened. First, I was asked the question, “What advice would you give your younger self?” Then, I attended my high school reunion.

Gentrification in Binghampton? The g-word is a term that can start a real debate in Memphis these days.
