7. Tiresome Behavior -

ENOUGH ALREADY. Even after months of mediation, after an agreed-upon compromise, after the appointment of a committee and the committee’s selection of a master planner, after the Overton Park Conservancy put up $250,000 toward the plan, after the council voted to take the Conservancy’s money … even after all of that … the Memphis Zoo stiffed the conservancy, the city, and you and me.

9. Last Word: Centennial, Hackett Retires -- Sort Of and Baseball Dreams -

Monday marks 100 years since a mob took Ell Persons off a train and to the Macon Road Bridge across the Wolf River and burned him alive. It was the lynching that gave birth to the Memphis Branch NAACP one month later. The national NAACP field office investigator who came to Memphis at great personal peril to investigate Person’s death was none other than James Weldon Johnson, the man who also composed “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

10. May 19-25, 2017: This week in Memphis history -

1917: Ell Persons is lynched by a mob of more than 5,000 people at the Macon Road Bridge. Authorities concluded Persons had murdered and raped Antoinette Rappel because they believed the dead girl’s eyes had retained an image of Persons – a practice law enforcement once used that has been thoroughly discredited.

11. Editorial: Beyond the Experience Of Memphis in May -

At about the 40-year mark, the Memphis in May International Festival has seen some changes. And there should be more to come.

12. This Week in Memphis History: May 5-11 -

1990: Milli Vanilli at the Mid-South Coliseum. Months before the Memphis show, the duo of Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus had won a Grammy Award as the Best New Artist, and in a Time magazine interview, Pilatus had referred to himself as “the new Elvis.”
The previous December one of the three actual singers on the hit record had said publicly that neither Morvan nor Pilatus sang a note. By November, Milli Vanilli’s producer admitted the duo didn’t sing on the record; their Grammy was taken back by the National Academy of Recordings Arts and Sciences four days later.

13. Last Word: Basketball Capitol, Gang Fight in Southwest Memphis and Moving Polk -

There is something to be said for hosting a round of the NCAA’s March Madness without having a team in the playoffs. Much to be said against it. But after a weekend of what I think most of us here will call the most compelling of the regionals featured prominently on national television, you really can find very little to complain about. It might even have rekindled the intensity of our civic love of basketball.

14. Last Word: The Overton Park Split, Democrats Help The Gas Tax Bill and LaVar Ball -

The city's tallest building, the fenced-off, derelict, 38-story 100 N. Main Building, cited in the past by fire officials for code violations including fire alarms that don't work -- had a small fire Wednesday 34 floors up.

17. Grizzlies’ Struggles Continue in Loss to Lowly Nets -

By the end, FedExForum looked like the early days at The Pyramid. The Grizzlies were losing by double-digits as the clock was winding down and fans were filing out into the night.

The Grindhouse, once a fortress of defense and Memphis pride, had a sadness about it, a tiredness and a quietness about it, except for the occasional and echoing “boo-o-o-o” that was well-deserved, if also pointless.

18. A Better Fit: Demand Takes Dry Cleaner Down Another Aisle -

In the age of recycling, a local dry cleaner and seamstress is restoring the lost art of dress designing for a generation of women who want to bring new life to vintage wedding gowns and formal wear.

19. Last Word: A Rainbow's Tale, The Two Holiday Peaks and Crosstown High Plans -

I saw it all so clearly on a very cloudy and very rainy Monday in the city. A strong rainbow with bold colors across town from the setting sun on the river. Not some play rainbow that you create with a garden hose or some alleged double rainbow that depends on where you stand. As we were fond of saying in these parts in the 1980s and the 1990s – this was a “world class” rainbow.

33. Last Word: The Zoo's Proposal, Health and Ed In Limbo and Annexation's Effect -

A busy weekend on several fronts not the least of which was Overton Park and the Greensward controversy.
The Greensward itself was pretty subdued on a chilly Saturday.
The action was to be found in an email the zoo sent out Saturday making some proposals and offering some thoughts on the traffic and parking study the Overton Park Conservancy released last week.
Here is our summary
of what the zoo is offering in what may be a new effort in the public discussion.
Of course, the private discussion which is the mediation effort continues. But it sounds like some of the mediation discussions may be finding their way into the public discussion.
The public discussion has been sporadically active but very muted so far. For instance there has been talk before of zoo parking on the eastern side of the park in what until recently was a city maintenance yard.
The proposal by the zoo was shot down pretty quickly because it included running a tram through the Old Forest.
But there are some scenarios that wouldn’t take such a tram through the Old Forest.
The zoo email from Saturday isn’t specific on how the folks who would park at the maintenance yard would get from there to the zoo.
Presumably that is grounds for some type of discussion.
