6. Glazed with Tradition, Gibson’s Donuts Keeps Customers Coming Back -

While word-of-mouth and nostalgia might get customers in the door of Gibson’s Donuts, great donuts and a commitment to customer service are what keep them coming back.

Gibson’s has been a Memphis icon since Lowell Gibson and his brother opened it in 1967 at 760 Mount Moriah Road, the East Memphis locale where it’s still going strong nearly 50 years later.

7. Confident Serrano Playing for Future at UT -

Tennessee baseball coach Dave Serrano wasn’t setting the bar too high when he met with the media for his 2016 preseason press conference.

Serrano made that mistake before the 2015 season with talk of reaching an NCAA regional and perhaps Omaha, Nebraska, site of the College World Series.

8. Last Word: EW&F, Midtown Rent Rise and A Closer Look At The Pyramid Deal -

One seemingly ordinary winter’s night in Downtown Memphis, I was going from event to event focused on work – specifically trying to stay on a schedule in which several things I wanted to cover were happening at the same time.
That is usually when you miss the experience that is Memphis on an everyday but definitely not ordinary basis.
So I get in a parking garage elevator and on the next floor David Porter – of Stax Records fame – gets on and he introduces me to his friend, Maurice White – the founder of Earth Wind and Fire. They too are trying to be in several places at the same time.
As they went their way and I went mine, I remember thinking this is quite a special place.
The encounter slowed my stride a bit and took some of the edge off the schedule – noticing for the first time how many people were out on a winter’s night in our city having nothing but a good time made better by all of us going our different ways.
White, who was from Memphis, died Thursday with his band’s music stronger and more relevant than ever.
If you grew up listening to EWF when the songs were new, you know that the bright and funky sound and the positive, affirming, and diverse identity of this music was quite intentional at a time when there was plenty going on that could have pushed it the other way.
If your parents or grandparents grew up listening to EWF, this music is a part of your family’s tradition that calls to mind special occasions and even your own mild surprise the first time you found yourself dancing to it with your children.
And if your folks’ vinyl record collection from back in the day included Earth Wind and Fire, that was one of the ones you listened to when they weren’t around and one of the ones you took with you when you got a place of your own.

9. Midtown Memphis Ready for Apartment Building Boom -

It’s been more than a decade since new apartments were built in Midtown, and that’s poised to change in a big way with a wave of new multifamily construction stretching from Binghampton to Crosstown.

10. Cates Wants Detail on Downtown Agreements -

From Mud Island River Park across the Memphis harbor to The Pyramid and further east to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – there are a lot of connections as the areas head toward a new incarnation.

11. Last Word: History As Geology, Beyond the Greensward and City Hall's HR Director -

History can be like geology once you get it in something that isn’t in the form of a book.
There are layers on top of layers that you may not ever see or miss until a site is wiped clean for the next present that used to be the future and will eventually become the past.
That’s the case with the city’s historic Medical Center where much has come and gone several times over as our city’s considerable investment in medicine and health approaches the end of its second century.
Health Sciences Park used to be the site of a hospital. You would think something as massive as the tower of Baptist Memorial Hospital’s central campus on Union Avenue would be missed. Yet even those of us who grew up with its presence drive past it every day without a thought of what was once there.
The same with the site of Russwood Park on the north side of Madison Avenue and the old bus barns where Beale used to run further east than it does now.
In recent years, new facilities have arisen as the medical center makes itself over in a kind of economic regeneration without a comprehensive plan.
There is now an effort to come up with a comprehensive plan for the area that is more than different ventures buying or leasing land and making plans for their needs.
Eight of the institutions in the area have hired a consulting firm to develop a master plan that includes not just facilities but residential and retail areas.
It’s a significant step for an area that remains intriguing for those of us trying to remember what was where and how long some of the survivors have been holding out in much different streetscapes than were there when they arrived.
The Masonic lodge at the dead end of Dunlap into Union Avenue is a survivor. It’s where the funerals were held for some of those killed in the 1925 river disaster in which Tom Lee rescued so many others.
The lodge at one time had an earth-shaking pipe organ that I had the rare privilege of hearing at a concert following its restoration in the 1980s – the ancient 1980s.
And I still wonder about the tiny medical textbook storefront and how it endures at a time when students rent books and others use digital versions.
There are still remnants of the porous border between the medical center and the Union Avenue auto row that used to exist and arose around the old Ford plant.

12. Time Running Short as Tigers Host UConn and Cincinnati -

The Tigers have lost three of their last four games, including that “bad” home loss to East Carolina and a less-than-competitive effort at then-No. 13 SMU last Saturday.

So the University of Memphis isn’t exactly riding a wave of momentum into an important two-game homestand against American Athletic Conference foes Connecticut (8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4) and Cincinnati (11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 6). Both games will air on ESPN2.

13. Packed Overton Park Traffic Town Hall Seeks View Beyond Greensward -

Architect and urban planner Steve Auterman stood before a standing-room-only crowd at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art Tuesday, Feb. 2, and made the case for a broader vision of Overton Park.

To Auterman, of Looney Ricks Kiss, it’s a still-developing plan that’s larger than the volatile issue of the Memphis Zoo’s overflow parking on the greensward.

14. Last Word: Rallings Meets the Council, Million Dollar Auditions & A Pinch Plan Emerges -

His second day on the job, the new Memphis Police Director, Michael Rallings, met the Memphis City Council and discovered just what a huge issue police body cameras are – if he didn’t know that already.
His answers to some pointed questions about when police can turn off those cameras and why made this an uneven first encounter.
Council members told him they got an earful from constituents over the weekend in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Johnathan Bratcher in South Memphis. And some of the reaction they got was to reports that a police dispatcher ordered police trying out the body cameras to turn them off as they arrived at the scene of the shooting.
There are three cameras being tested. And one of the officers with them showed up after the shooting, according to police.
Meanwhile, Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland still didn’t have a timetable for the roll-out of the cameras but did offer some specifics including hiring by the MPD of 10 new personnel to deal with the handling of what the camera records.
And Strickland’s intention is to pay for it out of the existing MPD budget.

The young, injured patients often in need of rehabilitation and physical therapy who are brought to Dr. Roxana Caraballo’s new East Memphis center can’t speak for themselves or necessarily demonstrate where and why they hurt.

The line for the 8th Congressional District seat began forming within half an hour of incumbent Stephen Fincher’s announcement Monday, Feb. 1, that he would not seek re-election in the August primaries.

17. Last Word: Post Caucus, Fincher's Exit, 1919 Handwriting and Your Rolodex -

That close (very little light between index finger and thumb) between Clinton and Sanders in Iowa Monday evening.
Both live to fight another day in another state—New Hampshire.
And because it is Iowa – they each get to declare victory as long as they don’t go into a lot of detail about the totals.
This is one of those cases where it is like horsehoes and hand grenades – close does count.

18. Stephen Fincher Won't Seek Re-Election -

U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher announced Monday, Feb. 1, that he will not run for re-election in Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District.

The seventh-generation agribusiness leader from Frog Jump, Tenn., said in an email that he “never intended to become a career politician.”

22. Last Word: Groundhog Day's Long Shadow, Minority Percentage & The Value of Sports -

After the January into February weekend we had with its outbreak of spring fever, you might wonder if groundhogs are allowed to change their minds or if shadows that are the result of television lights count as a prediction on the winter’s length.
Or maybe it would be appropriate to have a weather map that includes the Groundhog Day immunity zones – areas where the long shadow of the groundhog does not venture.
Note to television meteorologists: This would in no way interfere with your right to declare large parts of your viewing areas as places of "potentially severe weather" far into the future. But you will need a different color for the Groundhog Immunity Zones.

23. Nashville Developer Submits Plans for Downtown Memphis Housing -

There’s a reason The Bank of Fayette County’s still-growing trust division doesn’t carry the name of, well, the bank or its home county.

31. Last Word: Out of Time, Brian Collins and Fear of Heights & A Different No Gang Zone -

I have a confession. Hillary Clinton is not happy with me.
I’ve seen the signs in recent weeks but didn’t want to accept the truth.
Then Wednesday evening, as I was about to put this column together, I got an email from the former First Lady and Secretary of State and Democratic presidential contender.
The subject line cut to the chase: “We’re running out of time, Bill.”
The message itself, on a backdrop of Blue State blue read:

32. Last Word: A Turn Away From Mud Island, Capitol Hill Soap & Collierville Keeps FedEx -

Sometimes you get another story when you are pursuing a different story.

In this case, the quest was a simple one. Get a good basic idea of what the five companies interested in redeveloping Mud Island River Park are telling the Riverfront Development Corp. of their still-forming plans.
While going through the submissions, we had a talk with RDC president Benny Lendermon about the process and the interview moved pretty effortlessly into the Pyramid’s relationship to Mud Island.
It’s a natural follow-up given the history of past efforts to link up the two landmarks on different sides of the city harbor and the decidedly mixed results of those attempts. I might have been charitable there in describing the results as mixed.
That context led to a discussion about how the Pyramid is faring eight months into Bass Pro Shops' long-term lease in the reconfigured Pyramid.
When Lendermon said, “This probably isn’t a politically correct thing to say,” the interview turned topics and we followed it.
The result is, I think, at least something to consider and probably pretty provocative.
Judge for yourself.

33. Last Word: Kroger Disses Clarence Saunders, Mud Island Plans and The Australians -

What is old has become new again. And judging by your reaction to Andy Meek’s story on the Kroger plans for online ordering of groceries, what is old has gone viral as well.
Here are the basics:
You order from a list of items and Kroger fills the order and has it waiting for you to pick up.
When you think about the idea of supermarkets, which originated here in Memphis with Piggly Wiggly, it’s enough to make the Piggly Wiggly founder himself, Clarence Saunders, spin in his grave.
Before he came up with the idea of taking store shelves from behind the counter and putting them out there for you to get your own stuff from them, you would tell your grocer what you wanted and he would write it down on a paper bag and get it for you, wrap it up and present it to you.
Saunders changed all of that as you know if you’ve seen the Pink Palace’s child-sized replica of a Piggly Wiggly store from the start of the 20th century.
A century later, no paper bags and you can still walk among the shelves if you wish.
Perhaps this isn’t that extreme. Maybe this is simply a swing of the pendulum, back toward the middle ground.
Saunders tried to push it even further with his Keedoozle stores that followed Piggly Wiggly. In those stores, the items were lined up in what amounted to vending machines with shoppers releasing an item from the vertical row with a key.
Here Saunders went too far. He mashed the bread.

34. Tigers’ Burrell Earns AAC Recognition -

University of Memphis senior guard Trahson Burrell was named to the American Athletic Conference Weekly Honor Roll on Monday, January 25.

Burrell averaged 18.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 7 assists per game during the week. He shot 50 percent (14-of-28) from the field, 40 percent (4-of-10) from long range, and 71 percent (5-of-7) from the free-throw line and also added a block and a steal.

36. U of M Notebook: ‘Bad Loss,’ Says Josh Pastner -

A two-game losing streak in a college basketball season isn’t that unusual. But for the University of Memphis, the current two-game skid has set off alarms.

The Tigers’ strength this season has been their defense. But at Cincinnati last Thursday the Bearcats shot 50 percent in beating Memphis 76-72. A dreadful East Carolina team scored its first American Athletic Conference victory on Sunday, Jan. 23, in an 84-83 win over Memphis at FedExForum and shot 61.5 percent in the first half. Guard B.J. Tyson hit 6 of 10 shots from long range and finished with 26 points.

38. Morgan: Permanent Overton Park Fix Will Take Time -

The Memphis City Council member whose district includes Overton Park says there is no immediate permanent fix for the greensward controversy beyond the zoo continuing to park cars there.

“Short term, there’s really nothing that can quickly move that number of cars,” council member Worth Morgan said on the WKNO-TV program “Behind the Headlines.”

39. Last Word: The Big Fizzle, John Jay Hooker's Exit And "A Great Sports Town" -

Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it – isn’t that how the saying goes?
In our case, it might be better to say everybody talks about the television weather coverage but nobody does anything about it.
As we all know now, Memphis dodged the “blizzard” warning artfully and passive-aggressively teased by several television stations who shall go un-named here because they know who they are and you do too.
That’s because they spent much of the day of "the blizzard that wasn’t" whining about the reaction from viewers who complained about the hype and then the promos the stations ran the day of the big fizzle.
We didn’t get much in the way of snow in Memphis, but we got a couple of feet of hype.

40. Le Bonheur CEO Talks Big Development Projects on Tap -

It’s something of an understatement to say that Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital has big plans for 2016 and beyond.

Walking through several of the big-budget development projects on tap for the hospital over the short and long term, Le Bonheur president and CEO Meri Armour describes this as a consequential moment for the 2,300-employee health care organization. Expansions of service, facilities, treatment and more are all on the way for a hospital built around the fact that inside the 100 mile-radius around Memphis, according to Armour, there are about 1.6 million children.

43. Crosstown High School Plans Emerge -

As more details emerged this week of a new high school in the mammoth Crosstown Concourse redevelopment, there remained many other details to work out before the August 2017 planned opening.

The council approved a development that would turn the north course at Colonial into either a mix of single-family homes, townhouses and cottages or a mix of housing for senior citizens.

46. Crosstown High School Draft Proposal Unveiled -

Tentative plans for a Crosstown High School surfaced Tuesday, Jan. 19, after months of behind-the-scenes discussions.

A 450-student high school at Crosstown Concourse would be a part of the Shelby County Schools system but would have its own nonprofit board similar to the University of Memphis campus school. And it would be a partnership with Christian Brothers University, with CBU president John Smarrelli heading the school’s board.

49. Outside the Box -

Southwest Tennessee Community College is opening its new Whitehaven Center on Tuesday, Jan. 19. The building, which accommodates nearly 2,000 students at 1234 Finley Road off Elvis Presley Boulevard, is seeing new life following its run as a Kroger store that closed in 2011.

50. Tennessee Startups Chasing Greater Opportunities -

When it comes to launching startup companies, Tennessee is best described as “early stage.”

The less than $200 million in venture capital invested in Tennessee businesses in 2014 is a rounding error compared to the $30 billion invested in California. And when the final tally for 2015 comes out later this month, the disparity won’t be much smaller.

51. Sea Isle Signs -

By the numbers, Sea Isle Elementary has 36 students out of 517 who are hearing-impaired or deaf. Some are as young as 3 years old. Some are fifth-graders who in August will leave the East Memphis campus and their status as “Islanders” for the new frontier of middle school.

52. The Grind -

For Memphis musicians like John Paul Keith, the grind is not a catchy rallying cry or slogan. It’s a philosophy, a work ethic that allows musicians like him to earn a living dedicating themselves to their craft in one of the most important music cities in the world.

53. Laminack Takes Winding Journey To Creating Pyramid Stone -

Chuck Laminack was exhausted. He faced a long flight from China back to the U.S. and all he could think about was sleep.

So he approached the boarding agent in an attempt to upgrade his seat to first class and one that would allow him to really get comfortable on the flight. But his credit card was declined for the $3,600 charge, which was odd considering he always made sure the balance remained at zero.

54. Last Word: Legislature's Return, Uber Pilot, Minivan Comeback and Bowie's Exit -

The gavel falls in Nashville.
The Tennessee legislature is back in session Tuesday. This is an election year session for the legislature. So it will be short – likely an early April adjournment. But that doesn’t mean the session is without expectations from outside Nashville.

55. Chancellor Morgan to Retire Amid Board of Regents Shakeup -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Chancellor John Morgan is stepping down as head of the Tennessee Board of Regents following Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's announcement that he wants to grant more autonomy to the six four-year universities in the system.

56. Miss Cordelia’s Adapts To Customers’ Needs -

Amidst a constantly changing grocery scene in the Memphis area, Miss Cordelia’s keeps plugging along in Harbor Town on Mud Island.

But don’t think the neighborhood grocer is sitting back waiting on customers to walk through the doors. The business’ 35 employees aren’t paying as close attention to the national grocery brands expanding or joining the market farther to the east because they’re focused more on listening to customers to better understand what they want.

57. ‘Undefeated’ Courtney to Speak at Tigers Baseball Banquet -

The University of Memphis baseball program has never been shy about swinging for the fences when booking speakers for its annual Meet the Tigers Banquet. Past speakers include Hall-of-Famer George Brett, best-selling author John Grisham, and pitcher Jim Morris, who inspired the movie “The Rookie.”

58. Last Word: Council Round-Up, One Beale's Third Tower and the Battle Over the ASD -

On a clear day, the song goes, you can see forever.
In Memphis though, it seems that no two politicians will see exactly the same thing or have precisely the same opinion.
On a somewhat sunny but not necessarily clear Tuesday in our fair city there was a lot to see.

60. Fitness Resolutions -

Exercise trends through the years have included everything from grainy VHS tapes of Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons to step and spin classes, Zumba, and CrossFit.

61. Last Word: Out With the Old, In With The River -

We end 2015 with an eye on the Mississippi River as the city marks the New Year with three major New Year’s Eve outdoor celebrations – one on Beale Street, another in the newly-awakened Overton Square and yet another in the Broad Avenue Arts District.
Two come with lots of memories of past New Year’s eves – with soon-to-be memories.
Overton Square’s comeback as a theater district has been a big story of the last two years.
But Beale Street at the end of 2015 is an institution that has also seen a lot of change in the last year with the move to a Beale Street Tourism Development Authority at year’s end.
Broad is a different story with a different context. The context is a diversified Memphis whose crowd is likely to be at least slightly more local than the mix in Overton Square and on Beale Street.
It's example could very well show us the path to a New Year's eve with public celebrations from Whitehaven to Frayser.

69. Razorbacks Hope Roller-Coaster Season Ends On High Note -

They lost to Toledo. That in itself created a good-sized emotional earthquake among Arkansas Razorback fans.

And then came two more losses.

With a 1-3 start to the season – the lone victory over UTEP – the Razorbacks might have packed it in. But then they defeated Tennessee. Lost to Alabama the following week to fall to 2-4, but then reeled off four straight wins – including a four-overtime thriller over Auburn and upsets at No. 18 Ole Miss and at No. 9 LSU.

70. Last Word: Watching The River, The Clerk's Inner Circle and Universal Bankers -
