1. The Week Ahead: March 19-25, 2018 -

Good morning, Memphis! Spring fever’s in the air as the equinox officially arrives Tuesday morning. Tell winter to take a hike at the new Heels 4 Healing 5K for St. Jude this weekend, then let the kids dance the blues away at a pair of family ballet events. Here’s what else you should know about in The Week Ahead…

2. Smart Travel Planning -

Ray’s Take: It’s been a long, cold, rainy winter here in the Bluff City, and everyone is looking forward to Spring Break, sunshine, warmer weather and possibly making plans for a summer vacation.

3. Memphis Home Sales Stay Hot Despite February Cold, Rain -

A cold and rainy start to the year may have slowed down new construction, but it wasn’t enough to cool off Memphis’ overall housing market.

The average home sales price in Memphis and Shelby County for February rose 3 percent to $149,432 when compared to last year’s figures, according to real estate information company Chandler Reports, chandlerreports.com.

4. Last Word: The Ballot, By the River and The 'Good Ship Ineptitude' -

What blooms before spring and after the rains? It is the quest. The quest that must be declared over and over again – in the confidence of homes and the parlors of supporters – across kitchen tables and behind the soundproof doors of conference rooms -- the patios where supporters have gathered and the rented spaces where campaigns are located. Usually with food. Perhaps a corner table or possibly a catered buffet. Maybe just coffee.

5. Perfect Landing -

Memphis artist Martha Kelly sketches the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics broadcast during a recent dinner at Next Door American Eatery in Crosstown Concourse.

NEW YORK (AP) – A federal panel says it's OK for doctors to start using a kid-friendly nasal spray flu vaccine again.

Two years ago, the advisory group pulled its recommendation for FluMist vaccine after research found it wasn't working against the flu bug making most people sick.

8. Early Lessons For Aspiring Entrepreneurs -

The entrepreneurial dream was to have my own business. I always had jobs, but I wanted the freedom to do them in a different way. I wanted to exercise the creativity to do them my own way.

It didn’t matter what the job was, I liked mentally dissecting the way it was being done and putting it back together in a way that would make it seem more doable, more efficient, more logical and more enjoyable.

9. Consensus on Gun Legislation? Not on Your Life -

That burning smell emanating from the General Assembly isn’t coming from the flame of bipartisanship. More likely it’s the result of scorched-earth politics.

Even though a weapons measure called the “carry-like-a-cop” bill died recently in a House committee, the gap between Republicans and Democrats on gun legislation is, for the most part, about as wide as the range of a Barrett .50-caliber rifle, more than 2.5 miles.

10. Last Word: Looking In The Lookout, Women in Business and The Race for Governor -

What would bring a Memphian on his own to The Lookout – the restaurant and bar at the top of the Pyramid? The view, of course. So after the obligatory walk outside to the views south along the riverfront and west across the river, I settled in Sunday for the view from within. I lined up with both of the tree stumps in the round fish tank in the center of the Pyramid’s apex, a steampunk frog watching from above.

It seems the only thing consistent about this hot again, cold again weather is the rain. As we enter another week of the waning winter, there are plenty of events to keep you entertained. But don’t forget the umbrellas, Memphis!

13. Last Word: Filing Deadline, Case & Vance In May and Paul Manafort at the Rivermont -

By our count, when the noon Thursday deadline for candidates in the May county primaries has come and gone, there could be -- could be -- four incumbent county commissioners who are effectively re-elected to their seats for another four-year term. And we already know the commission will have at least seven new faces in September. More interesting is that there are only four sets of primaries – all for countywide offices – that have multiple contenders in each primary. That’s out of 23 offices on the primary ballot.

14. Revisiting Winter Olympics Destinations -

I’ve been an Olympics fan since 1984, when I recall cheering on Mary Lou Retton and Carl Lewis to win gold in Los Angeles. I’ve only been to one Olympics, the Summer Games in Atlanta in 1996.

15. AP Sources: Mitt Romney to Launch Senate Campaign Thursday -

Republican Steve McDaniel, of Parkers Crossroads, tells our Nashville correspondent Sam Stockard that he has a bill in the House to close the loophole. But it won't undo what happened here. Although there is still a court fight over that taking shape.

19. Setting Financial Goals -

Ray’s Take: A new year for many brings with it thoughts of New Year’s resolutions. Whether it’s stopping smoking, losing weight, saving money or spending less time at work, resolutions too often feel negative or depriving. Instead of talking about “making resolutions,” we should be talking about “setting goals.”

20. Resiliency Concept Goes Broader With Master Plan -

24. Last Word: Wiretaps in the Wright Case, Target Layoffs and SCS Looks To Move -

Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen of Memphis among those boycotting the State of the Union address Tuesday evening by President Donald Trump. “The president is unworthy of the podium, the position and the power.” Republican Congressman David Kustoff of Germantown among those not boycotting SOTU. “Just one year after president Trump took the oath of office, our economy is the strongest it has been in decades. … We passed historic tax reform and we bolstered our military and support our veterans. Last year, the president kept his promises and tonight, he told the American people that he is not done.”

25. Mystery Surrounds Super Bowl Ads -

In another record-breaking year, with ad costs exceeding $5 million per 30-second spot, big brands are, once again, putting it all on the line. Some will score big and others will be answering to their boards about their multimillion-dollar blunders.

26. Last Word: Credit Hours & Tn Promise, Opioid Differences and Nikki's Hot Rebrand -

A very busy Monday and I feel like some of this is may be fueled by some of us just now getting completely over the flu or someone close who has the flu for the first time in the New Year. Whatever the case, Monday came with a curtain call of sorts by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, a court order on the Confederate monuments, year-end stats on crime in Memphis and countywide… a PILOT here, a building permit or three there.

27. Flu Widespread Across US for Third Straight Week -

NEW YORK (AP) – Sick with the flu? You've got a lot of company.

The flu blanketed the U.S. again last week for the third straight week. Only Hawaii has been spared.

Last week, 1 in 15 doctor visits were for symptoms of the flu. That's the highest level since the swine flu pandemic in 2009. The government doesn't track every flu case but comes up with estimates; one measure is how many people seek medical care for fever, cough, aches and other flu symptoms.

31. Last Word: Eureka Education, Confederate Monuments in Court and Dillon Brooks -

Supermarkets are hard. That is the tag line in every discussion about getting a supermarket or grocery store for a given part of town that doesn’t have one. And once a new supermarket goes up somewhere else, there is inevitably word that a competitor or two is going to build nearby. The discussion always includes the mandatory recitation of the 3 to 4 percent profit margin stores operate on, which even knowledgeable critics of the decisions about where to locate and not to locate stores acknowledge is accurate.

36. Winter Weather Hits Lifeblood Donations -

One of the less obvious consequences of the winter weather that has hit Memphis in recent days is that donations to Lifeblood, the area’s blood service provider, have also taken a hit.

When sleet and the prospect of dangerous winter weather force the organization to temporarily close its local donor centers and cancel blood drives, as it had to do in recent days, it slows Lifeblood’s intake of donated blood. The bad weather, meanwhile, is also coming at an especially tough time, since widespread flu has already reduced blood donations locally.

37. 'F' is for Fraud -

A close one for the best team in the NBA Monday evening at the Forum but the Grizz lose only their second game of the young season to the Hornets 104 – 99. Some of you went. Some of you watched.

60. Big River Crossing: Observations on two wheels … and sometimes two feet -

You can’t really do the reporting on Big River Crossing and the connections to it without going at it on bike. And so here are a few observations and opinions:

I've seen the jerseys and other riding apparel. And I understand its comfort as well as its purpose. But I can't do it -- at least not the whole outfit. I feel like I will have to turn in my Frayser resident card. If this gear had been around when we had bell bottoms, before the return of straight leg jeans – maybe. But probably not.

70. Top US Fall Destinations -

Fall is my favorite time of year. The cooling temperatures, changing colors and football season all combine to make for a fun time of year.

It’s also a great time to travel. Fall means shoulder season in many top destinations, making travel a bit more affordable.

Here are my top U.S. fall destinations on my radar for travel this year.

That’s plural – running backs.

Bowl victories are nice. So are nine-win seasons. But Wolf wants a lot more in his final season with the Vols.
