Ray’s Take: As of August 2017, the oldest person alive was a 117–year-old woman named Violet Brown from Jamaica. And when I scrolled through the list of the top 100 oldest people alive, only three were men. I’ll let you try and make sense of that.

Ray’s Take: The most expensive funeral ever documented was that of Alexander the Great. The cost of laying him to rest was a whopping $600 million in today’s money.

Rounding out the top five most expensive funerals on record are Ronald Reagan, Kim Jong Il, John F. Kennedy and the Queen Mother. When Reagan was laid to rest, the day was declared a day of mourning that closed down the stock market and gave federal workers the day off. This added to his pricey funeral expenses.

24. Last Word: Graceland Offensive, Mural Lawsuit, and a TNReady Encore -

It’s on in The Haven. Graceland’s managing partner, Joel Weinshanker, is looking to turn out Whitehaven residents in support of Graceland’s plans for a 5,000 to 6,000 seat arena and in the process a showdown over just what the city and county noncompete for FedExForum means. During a townhall meeting at Guest House Thursday evening, Weinshanker made his case to about 150 Whitehaven residents and around eight or nine candidates in this election year. And he said the chief problem is Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland won’t talk to him about projects he says will open up Whitehaven for future economic development and prosperity.

One in three older Americans with Medicare drug coverage is prescribed opioid painkillers, but for those who develop a dangerous addiction there is one treatment Medicare won't cover: methadone.

27. Editorial: Universal Life a Blueprint For Building Black Wealth -

While many of us were thinking about and remembering the turbulent events of 1968, this week brought another significant nod to the past with a commitment to the future.

28. State of Flux -

Anyone paying attention to recent news headlines alone should have a pretty good indication that health care in the U.S. – really anywhere you look, on local, state or national levels – remains a byzantine, expensive proposition. Health care keeps getting more expensive. It involves navigating a lot of paperwork with bureaucratic legalese that bears the fingerprints of a tangle of stakeholders, including insurers, doctors and lawmakers.

29. Last Word: I Am A Man Plaza, Graceland Clears EDGE and Filing Deadline Action -

Sometimes the simplest concepts say more than an elaborate explanation can – even when the history it depicts is complex. A plaza dedicated to the 1,300 city sanitation workers who went on strike in 1968 formally opened Thursday on what had been a vacant lot just across Pontotoc from the south side of Clayborn Temple. And the occasion included more of the small moments that have made this week so compelling. Watching civil rights icon Rev. James Lawson walk around the plaza and discover it includes one of his quotes from the 1968 strike.

30. Last Word: MLK50s Big Day, Hotel Changes and Murica on Capitol Hill -

The peak of the MLK50 events came Wednesday with a chill but some sunshine and lots to consider. Understand -- this isn’t over. There are still a few more events to go through the weekend and even into next week. If nothing else, a lot more Memphians and visitors got a good look at most of South Main in the best way possible – on foot. And if the Beale Street District ever expands east to Danny Thomas, the intersection there makes a really good place for a party.

31. Universal Life Insurance Building Reopens With New Hope for Black Economic Growth -

There is still some build-out to be done on the Universal Life Insurance building at Danny Thomas Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.

The week of MLK50 commemorations began Monday with a speech by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and the arrival Monday afternoon of Rev. Bernice King, the youngest child of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Meanwhile, Monday's day of free admission to the museum, underwritten by FedEx drew a long line.

44. Editorial: How to Bridge Memphis’ Medical Need and Promise -

When Dr. Scott Morris, the founder of Church Health, says, “Health is about more than the absence of disease,” he cuts through much of the jargon that can obscure what is really important in Memphis.

45. The Church Health Way -

One of the easiest ways to tell that Scott Morris is not your typical prescription-writing family doctor – and that the health care organization he founded, Church Health, is no ordinary medical practice – is when he starts talking about softer concepts like joy and happiness and spirituality.

46. Revisiting Your Will -

Ray’s Take: The start of a new year is a great time to get out your will and really read it. If you don’t have one, call your attorney today and get one. I do not recommend that you try and do this yourself or through an online program. Most people do not have financial situations that are so specific that you won’t need a lawyer. And oftentimes self-prepared wills are not executed correctly. I have lived through too many disasters of flawed wills to go there.

47. Job Hopping and Your Retirement Plans -

Ray’s Take: There was a time when you worked your entire career at one company and retired with a pension and a gold watch after 40 or so years of service. But, like so many things, that picture has changed over the years. Job hopping – once a red flag on your resume – is now the norm.

49. Anti-Abortion ‘Heartbeat Bill’ Revived Despite Like-Minded Opposition -

State Rep. Micah Van Huss delayed the measure in a House committee until a Senate sponsor can be placed on it, but he confirmed he will present the bill as soon as the clerk’s office prepares it.

50. Midlife Look at Insurance Needs -

Ray’s Take: Life insurance is an important part of most overall financial plans. Replacing the capital value of the significant providers is critical should they not be able to provide. Owning the right insurance for the right price at the right time in your life is a crucial element to your financial well-being.

51. Using Kids as Chips -

THIS ISN’T A GAME, KIDS AREN’T CHIPS. As I write this, 9 million low-income kids in America are at risk of losing their insurance, primarily because they aren’t the kids of Congress.

52. From Intern to Executive, Meeks Builds Bold Team -

For most of us, our first big financial move as young adults might have been an apartment security deposit, say, or the down payment on a used car. When Jim Meeks was 17 years old, fresh out of high school in Paducah, Kentucky, he said to himself, “I want to buy some life insurance.”

56. Powers of Attorney: A Big Part of the Plan -

Ray’s Take: There are multiple moving parts to a good estate plan and various powers of attorney are an important element. Power of attorney basically gives someone else the right to act on your behalf; there are two types of powers of attorney.

57. Last Word: California Extradition, Corker's Vote on Tax Reform and Post Kirk & Crum -

Former Tennessee Gov. and Nashville mayor Phil Bredesen formally entered the 2018 race for the U.S. Senate Thursday via a YouTube video. AP on Bredesen’s entry and his background.

59. Bredesen Joins Senate Race To Succeed Bob Corker -

“My main concern is speed to market,” starts Fred, “as I have seen many innovators lose hope. The antidote to losing hope is insisting on speed. Speed is how I can impact the culture.”

72. Expanding Its Reach -

His was a story as tragic as it is familiar. E. Young had immediate family members in a gang. More than one gang tried to recruit him. His parents were in no way equipped to raise him.

When he moved in with an aunt, Phyllis Brown, he was by his own words “angry, depressed.”

73. Medical Planning for Two -

Ray’s Take: Planning how you’ll handle health expenses is one of the crucial jobs for any couple when planning for retirement. While many elements of health insurance are based on the individual, it’s important to evaluate these expenses as a couple because what happens to one person inevitably affects the couple as a whole. From a financial point of view and also from a caregiver point of view.

74. Estate Planning for Blended Families -

Ray’s Take: Estate planning has undergone a lot of changes over the years, and one of the most significant doesn’t have anything to do with the tax laws. It is the change in family relationships.

This was once an uncommon situation, but in today’s world fully 42 percent of adults have some kind of step-relationship, according to Pew Research.

75. Last Word: Pinnacle's Drive-Through, Back to Work On Beale and Tea Time -

The Grizz lose 103-94 in Dallas Wednesday to the Mavericks. The Mavericks are here Thursday.

ESPN outlines an unusual process that if it comes into play could take a while to sort out.

76. Whistleblowing and Retaliation -

Karen Silkwood, Marie Ragghianti, Mark Felt, Frank Serpico and Coleen Rowley are just some of the well-known names of employees who “blew the whistle” on their employers’ alleged wrongdoings. Both Tennessee and federal law protect individuals who report or complain about alleged illegal activity by their employer. Since wrongdoers seldom publicize their criminal activity, it is vitally important that our society encourages, protects, and rewards those who come forward to expose such criminal activity.

77. Last Word: Alexander on Trump, Gibson Sells and Chandler Home Sales Numbers -

If you tuned out at half-time in Houston Thursday evening, you may need to examine your committment and give me five sets of wind sprints from East Parkway to the fountain at the other end of Tiger Lane. And no drinking the blue water.

82. Connecting The Pieces -

The Pinch District – a Downtown mini-neighborhood of only a few blocks sandwiched between the Memphis Cook Convention Center, Uptown, The Pyramid and the campus of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – has been a neglected donut hole of development for years, as investments have poured into other areas of Downtown around it.

83. Let It Go: Stress, Finances Don’t Mix Well -

Ray’s Take: Worrying is a way that our brain prepares us for the next challenge or opportunity, and it’s healthy in low doses. But too many of us are consumed by worry, which creates stress. And stressful thinking can sabotage your finances. A 2015 study by the American Psychological Association found that money is the leading cause of stress for many Americans.
