It’s the question that won’t go away – will the Tennessee Titans be sold.

5. 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.

6. Alexandria Smith Learning the ‘Undercurrents’ of Politics on the Job -

It would have made a good story, how another stone-hearted stockbroker that thrives on the “action” had been honing all the necessary skills since age 10.

A HISTORY LESSON TAUGHT, NOT LEARNED.

When I first wrote about attempts to steamroll Overton Park, a friend told me a great story. He was in his parents’ living room one afternoon in the late ’60s listening to his father go on and on about the battle to keep I-40 out of Overton Park ... too late to stop it, who are these silly protestors anyway, yadda yadda ... when they turned on the local news.

14. 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.

15. Logistics Startup Exec: Amazon Gunning for FedEx -

The number of voices in the technology world convinced that Amazon has stuck a target on the back of FedEx – as well as its larger competitor, UPS – continues to grow.

The latest is Matthew Hertz, director of operations at package shipment startup Shyp. He took to social networking service LinkedIn in recent days to pen a commentary about why Amazon’s emergence as a significant logistics alternative appears to be a matter of when, not if.

16. A Month After Raising Rates, Fed Faces Darker Global Economy -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Since the Federal Reserve raised interest rates from record lows last month, the global picture has darkened. Stock markets have plunged. Oil prices have skidded. China's leaders have struggled to steer the world's second-biggest economy.

17. 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.

Crosstown High School, which would use the University of Memphis’ Campus School as a model, has been talked about behind the scenes since Gestalt Community Services pulled out of Concourse last year. SCS board members got their first look at the plan Tuesday, Jan. 19.

18. Last Word: Time and The Greensward, Crosstown High and Race and Sports -

Remember how the schools merger story of about five years ago would change by the hour at times? That story has met its equal in what is becoming the first major challenge of the new Strickland administration at City Hall – the Overton Park Greensward.
So much happened before noon Tuesday on the first day of the short work week that it required waiting for the dust to settle on several fronts.
Here is the latest on a very fluid and volatile situation that could very well change as you are reading this.
Luckily we report at a time when you can change stories on line to keep up with such changes.
Zoos and parks and protests featuring brass bands suggest to a casual observer that this is not very serious as controversies go.
And maybe that was the case about a year and a half ago when a group of high school students decided to block the gravel driveway from the zoo parking lot onto the greensward.
But consider this:
The Memphis Zoo is working toward a March 1 opening of its new exhibit, Zambezi River Hippo Camp, a $22-million attraction that from what we saw just a few months ago will likely draw big crowds to the zoo in the spring.
The zoo was preparing for that starting with the removal of 27 trees from the north end of the greensward.
The best Mayor Jim Strickland could get from both sides – the zoo and Overton Park Conservancy – at his meeting with them Tuesday was a commitment to take his proposal for mediation to their respective boards.
The zoo board has authorized its leaders to file a lawsuit in Chancery Court over the greensward and it’s very likely the zoo would go to court before the March 1 opening because of the crowds on their way.
If the work to come by the zoo in advance of the March 1 opening involves heavy machinery, the reaction is likely to draw a much bigger protest than the ones Memphis Police have so far watched from a distance without making arrests.
As in all pressing political dramas, this controversy has the accelerant of timing.

19. Crosstown High School Draft Proposal Unveiled -

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

And it would be a partnership with Christian Brothers University, with CBU president John Smarrelli heading the school’s board.

No way Tennessee’s football team can lose Saturday’s homecoming game against North Texas, one of the worst teams in college football.

87. Aerosmith Frontman Tyler Partnering with Youth Villages -

In November of 1989, Aerosmith released its hit song “Janie’s Got a Gun.” The song, as the title implies, took a direct route to the issue of child abuse.

88. Warriors, Curry Too Much For Grizzlies – And Everyone Else So Far -

Stephen Curry had seen this game before, in this building, in the playoffs and in the regular season. The Memphis Grizzlies were trying to do what they always try to do – drag a high-powered offensive machine such as the Golden State Warriors into the mud and not let them get up.

89. Rarely Deployed Weapon: Tigers Punter Spencer Smith Good When He Gets a Chance -

The Tigers’ high-powered offense, driven by quarterback Paxton Lynch, is well-documented. Their 44.8 scoring average ranks sixth nationally.

90. Others might join Whisenhunt before it’s over -

The clock is ticking for Mike Mularkey, just as it is for most of the organization’s management team.

As the Tennessee Titans new interim coach, Mularkey has nine games now to prove himself worthy of being the team’s head coach beyond just the remainder of the team’s wrecked 2015 season.

91. Titans Fire Ken Whisenhunt, Name Mularkey Interim Coach -

94. How Training Can Sabotage A Sales Team -

Institute training. This is number six of 14 key points W. Edwards Demings offers managers to improve effectiveness in an organization.

Demings is the father of the modern quality movement and is best known for helping Japan rise out of the ashes of WWII to become a major industrial power, and for his belief that 94 percent of workplace problems are caused by management. In his landmark (though now dated) book “Out of the Crisis,” Demings poignantly states, “We have neglected this extremely important function to the extent that too many Western workers do not know how to do their jobs.” It’s become an epidemic dragging down companies across our nation.

95. Could Amazon Challenge FedEx? -

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but depending on who’s doing the imitating, it could also represent a major threat.

The latest competitor whose moves are resulting in a crush of “FedEx might have reason to worry” headlines – Amazon, which is pushing to own more of the so-called “last mile” of the package delivery journey and to also become a package delivery giant in its own right.
