This past July, it became the local face of a resumed national narrative.

45. Arrests, Metal Barriers, Lawsuits All Played Role in Greensward Parking Compromise -

Spring at City Hall is budget season and it can be stormy for a new mayor, not to mention a city council with six new members. But that wasn’t the case in 2016.

60. Election Fallout: What a Trump Or Clinton Presidency Means for State -

61. Council Rejects 2 Car Lots, Amends DROP Freeze for C-Suite -

Starting a used car lot used to be a lot simpler. In fact it was considered a right – “development by right” until a change in recent years in the local Unified Development Code.

66. Cleveland Indians, ‘Major League’ Come to World Series -

67. Big River -

Jim Jackson had it planned. At the third annual Arkansas Delta Flatlander bicycle ride, the 100-kilometer bike ride would become what it was intended to be – a ride across the Mississippi River from West Memphis to Memphis across the northern side of the Harahan Bridge.

68. Last Word: In Defense of The Cossitt, Joe Royer and 3 Months Since The Bridge -

Citizens of Memphis, I rise in defense of the city’s first public library. Not in its original much-loved state but in defense of its much-ridiculed modernization.

No, I will not follow that with a defense of John Calipari or the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s location in Cleveland instead of Memphis or the late Mo’ Money Taxes and the company’s commercials. But I reserve the right to, at some future date, defend the big silver sculpture thing on the northeast corner of Front and Poplar at the Cannon Center.

69. Last Word: The Grizz Are Back, Bass Pro Shops Buys Cabela's and Stein at Amurica -

72. Last Word: The Debate, Arnold Palmer and an Analysts' Poll on First Horizon -

Monday evening is the first of the Trump-Clinton Presidential debates and it will probably be watched very closely for a number of reasons – not the least of which is vigorous fact-checking of both candidates and the unique nature of this campaign between the two major contenders who are by several standards the most unpopular Presidential candidates to run against each other in our lifetimes.

75. Nothing Else Counts for Jones if He Can’t Top Gators -

Being an offensive or defensive coordinator can be a thankless job.

79. Photographer Steber Captures Fading Legends on Blues Highway -

Bill Steber stood at the crossroads in the Mississippi Delta and made a deal with the devil that would allow him to not only master his photographic skills but become one of the most respected documentarians of Mississippi Delta blues.

88. Last Word: The Elvis Bubble, Global Entry At MEM and ARC at the Rec Room -

Elvis Week is with us.

97. Last Word: The Greensward Deal, Pulpit to Protest Call and Leader Federal's HQ -
