24. Editorial: Take the Riverfront Plan From Concept to Action -

GOOD WHISKEY ISN’T DRUNK. IT’S REMEMBERED. Good whiskey and good stories age well. I wrote that a while back when I was hired to write a bit about whiskey.

The Memphis Grizzlies continue to walk dual trails. It is what they must do, even if such hedging threatens to constrain both their immediate and long-range future.

It didn’t take the Shelby County Commission very long Wednesday to close the door on its budget season – about 20 minutes in the day’s special meeting to approve a county property tax rate of $4.11 on third and final reading.

AutoZone’s stock price is pointed in the opposite direction it’s been accustomed to for years now.

38. Costa Brava Brings Spanish Coast to Life -

Calella de Palafrugell is an instance of pictures not doing a place justice, particularly the views from our Hotel Sant Roc perched on the rocks above the sea.

41. Complacency is the No. 1 Business Killer -

While the actual activities take on different forms, at the end of the day, I’ve come to the realization that I’m a change agent for companies dissatisfied with their current sales and marketing outcomes.

42. After-School Job Not For Everyone -

A reader recently wrote to me with an interesting question. He was seeking advice on how his teenage daughter might find an after-school job for her high school years. His logic makes sense.

Although I respect this method of getting there, I also suggested an alternative path.

Like so many professionals in a monolithic system, she yearns for meaning and purpose in her daily work, which is lacking for her in health care social work.

53. Take Time to Retreat -

70. Summer in the City -

Saturday night on Beale Street is more than a catch phrase for businesses there.

It is chapters in old, out-of-print books like Lt. George W. Lee’s “Where The Blues Began” that you can only see in the Memphis-Shelby County Room of the Central Library.

But you can also find references to the lore of Saturday nights on Beale Street on plaques in the entertainment district that current patrons walk past without even noticing.

75. Companies Can Be Identity Theft Victims -

More than 15 million consumers were the victims of identity theft in 2016. Companies can also have their good names misappropriated in a scheme to defraud consumers.
