NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery says lawsuits by local prosecutors over the opioid epidemic are complicating his efforts to reach a multistate settlement with drug companies.

5. Last Word: TNReady Blinks Again, Gov. Debate Thoughts and Mud Island's Museum -

There was a point Thursday morning during the troubled TNReady testing at some Tennessee school districts when there was a “brief” slow down in the online testing, according to the Tennessee Education commissioner’s office. By noon that had been resolved and more than 250,000 completed tests had been submitted since testing began Monday. One can only imagine what some of the thoughts were in the office during the slow down and the gap between how long the slow down seemed and how long it actually was.

6. When It Rains, It Pours -

Ray’s Take

I always have an umbrella in my car. Most of the time it just takes up space and I end up pushing it aimlessly around the car to make room for other things. And there are many months of the year when an umbrella seems utterly pointless. But in Memphis, when it rains, it pours, and when that day comes I’m happy to have it.

Would keeping interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff be the easiest play for the Memphis Grizzlies? Absolutely.

Would keeping the 39-year-old assistant who was promoted after David Fizdale was fired amid a losing streak and conflict with star center Marc Gasol be the best budget move for the Grizzlies? Probably.

The state House’s Tuesday action cutting $250k in funding for Memphis from Gov. Bill Haslam’s budget proposal is turning into a cause back here, starting with a GoFundMe page. Elsewhere on social media, you can see the unmistakable outline of a party or parties for the cause beginning to form. This is near the end of session for the Legislature when the budget is the last action before going back to the district to run for re-election. Different timing over here, with multiple crawfish outings leading into Memphis in May.

Why should UT Knoxville be limited to its annual Sex Week when Tennessee legislators are celebrating year-round?

27. Dogs + Vodka = Winning Marketing Strategy -

New York Times best-selling author, Robert Cialdini, is known for his expertise on the subject of persuasion – specifically the role it plays in driving consumers to purchase.

In his book “Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion,” Cialdini cites six key principles of influence – one being the concept of “liking.” In its simplest form, this principle states that consumers are more easily persuaded to make a purchase by people they like. “Liking,” in this sense, doesn’t mean there is necessarily friendship. It is about discovering common attributes. Sales reps who draw attention to commonalities with prospects have a greater chance of closing the sale. The same holds true for your marketing effort.

34. Last Word: The Wheels on the Bus, HelloHome and Cooper-Young's Debate -

It’s been so long that when someone talks about trolleys in this town of ours, you might think of the ones with rubber tires that have been running for the last four years.

1968: Striking Memphis sanitation workers vote to accept a pay raise of 15 cents an hour from the city, ending their strike after 64 days. Ten cents of the raise will go into effect in May, with the other 5 cents being added on Sept. 1.

60. A Memphis Parable -

HOWARD AND BILL. One of my first columns was this very Memphis story. It’s time to tell it again. 

In the ’60s, Howard Robertson was a black postal carrier moonlighting as a waiter at the capital of white money dining in Memphis, Justine’s, housed in an antebellum mansion. Bill Loeb was a successful white businessman, owner of ubiquitous laundry branches about town, and the brother of Henry Loeb, mayor during the 1968 sanitation strike. Loeb lived in a home literally bordering the Memphis Country Club. Robertson lived in the other Memphis those of us who grew up white then never really acknowledged.

Twenty-five years after its premier at Lincoln Center, “Too Hot to Handel: The Jazz-Gospel Messiah” is coming to The Orpheum Theatre with its 40-piece orchestra, 100-member choir and renowned soloists.

75. Overtime Exemption Rules Not So Simple -

In today’s world, the 40-hour workweek may seem old-fashioned. Employees work remotely, answer emails on mobile devices anytime, and fewer workers clock in at nine and clock out at five. While the business climate evolves, the overtime requirement set forth in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) remains consistent: non-exempt employees must receive overtime pay – “time-and-a-half” – for any time worked beyond 40 hours in a workweek. This raises the important and complicated question, “Which employees are exempt?”
