In a year, a group of religious leaders hopes to draw at least 5,000 Memphians to an area off Summer Avenue by the Wolf River where 3,000 gathered nearly a century ago as a man was burned alive.

The Lynching Sites Project of Memphis gathered Sunday, May 22, in a field by a Wolf River oxbow, 99 years to the day that Ell Persons was lynched at an event that was covered by local newspapers in advance.

3. St. Jude Pulls $84.5M Permit for Expansion -

5. Elephants Abound -

The old joke goes this way: Every morning on the commuter train to work a man watches another man read his paper, meticulously folding every page to a single column width, then unfolding and refolding as he reads each column top to bottom. Finally, unable to stand it anymore, the first approaches the second and asks, “Why do you do that?” “It keep elephants off the train,” comes the reply.

6. In a Players’ League, a Coach Is Captive to His Roster -

As the Memphis Grizzlies continue The Great Coach Search, it’s fair to ask this basic, and at some level, almost offensive, question:

Does it really matter that much?

Specifically, will the next Grizzlies’ coach, be he a veteran like former Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel (which appears more unlikely all the time), or an untested current NBA assistant, ultimately determine the direction of the franchise?

7. New FESJC Director Hoping for Clear Skies, Big-Name Leaders -

Sometimes, the moments that determine your future are seemingly small. Only later can you put everything together and realize that’s when you really made your choice.

This is Darrell Smith’s first year as tournament director of the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Because he is only 33 years old, one could argue he got to this position quickly. But that’s not entirely true and does not take into account the fateful moment when he was 14 years old.

8. Baptist Executive Vaughn Receives U of M’s Highest Alumni Award -

Anita Vaughn’s notable 43-year career with Baptist Memorial Hospital started on a whim.

“I went to University of Memphis for a year thinking I was going to be a commercial artist,” Vaughn said. “Then a friend just happened to say, ‘You know what? I’m going down to Baptist School of Nursing,’ and I said, ‘Well, OK. Me too!’

9. Poll: Two-Thirds of US Would Struggle to Cover $1,000 Crisis -

10. Latest 'High Gear' Book Maps Success for College Grads, Millennials -

The 21 million U.S. students enrolled in postsecondary schools grew up with technology and the hourly clock of life ticking ever faster. Yet this has not always translated into a generation of young people ready to attack a world that waits for no one.

11. New $60M Project to Fight for 1st Amendment in Digital Age -

NEW YORK (AP) – The First Amendment is getting a new champion, with some deep pockets.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Columbia University on Tuesday announced the launch of a $60 million project, the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, which would use litigation as well as research and education to fight for freedom of expression in an ever-evolving digital era.

12. NTSB Blames Distracted Engineer for Deadly Amtrak Wreck -

13. New Schools Giving Memphis Suburbs More Autonomy -

Some of the trees along East Shelby Drive on the 158 acres at Sycamore Road are in rows. It’s the unmistakable sign of a tree nursery. And before that it was considered a prime dove hunting location.

18. Haves, Have-Nots Get Varied Tax Relief -

Amid the rancor of bathroom and counseling bills, two major pieces of legislation slipped through the General Assembly this session with hardly a peep – elimination of the Hall tax and a partial revitalization of property tax relief for seniors and disabled veterans.

19. A Graduation Speech to Inspire -

Graduation season comes with hundreds of commencement addresses meant to encourage and inspire. If you didn’t hear one this year, allow me to share an address I gave.

“Did you ever hear something that so captivated your thoughts that it eventually defined the process of your decision-making? I did. It was a quote attributed to Rev. Martin Niemoller, a Lutheran minister, about his experiences in Germany during World War II.

23. GOP Fractures Ruin Reagan Day Fundraiser in Tennessee -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Reagan Day fundraisers have been a staple of GOP politics ever since the Great Communicator made a point of promoting the 11th Commandment – thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican. But in the conservative suburbs east of Nashville, the event has become too poisonous to be held this year.

24. Gangster Disciples Case Alleges Attempted Murder, Threats -

When reputed members of street gangs are indicted on federal charges, the indictments are usually brief and technical.

They will allege that the accused had a firearm and was a felon and thus could not legally carry a gun. Or they will allege the defendant was dealing an amount of drugs that exceeds the threshold for federal charges.

25. Olymbec Purchases TBC Warehouse -

Montreal, Canada-based Olymbec USA has purchased a Hickory Hill warehouse currently occupied by Tire & Battery Corp.

26. Adults Not Helping Childhood Obesity Turn Corner Very Quickly -

27. Joerger and Grizzlies Both had the Itch -

If Dave Joerger and the Memphis Grizzlies had been a married couple, they would have been those unsettled spouses forever undercutting each other in dinner party conversations, rolling their eyes, and smiling fake “we really do love each other smiles” while checking out all the other guests.

28. The Week Ahead: May 9-15 -

Alright, Memphis, grab your calendars! Whether you want to book it over to the Ruby Bridges Reading Festival or just baste in the scent of barbecue, there’s plenty to do this week. Here’s our roundup...

29. Memphis Consultant Says Airport Area ‘Gone’ for Hotel Development -

Chuck Pinkowski, a local hotel consultant with Pinkowski & Co., said that a multimillion-dollar renovation couldn’t save the Holiday Inn from a declining hotel market.

30. Editorial: Telling the Whole Truth Against All Odds -

Have you ever heard of Samuel Allen McElwee, Isham Franklin Norris or Monroe W. Gooden?

31. Massacre: 1866 and the Battles Over How Memphis History is Told -

At the end of March with much secrecy, Rev. Keith Norman took delivery and responsibility for a large, heavy crate that stayed in his office for the next month.

“Don’t tell anybody, don’t let anybody get it, if they come in and say they work for the park commission or anybody, tell them to show identification,” were the instructions said Norman, who is president of the Memphis Branch NAACP.

32. FDA Announces Rules That Could Upend E-Cigarette Industry -

33. Last Word: Overt Acts, Fringe Element and Roller Derby -

Gang cases in Memphis Federal Court are fairly common. Federal gang cases in which murder or attempted murder to further a criminal enterprise is among the charges are not common.

The last case to surface was also the largest drug case ever brought in Memphis Federal Court. It was the 2008 case against Craig Petties and his multi-state drug operation with direct ties to the Sinaloa drug cartel.

34. 16 Alleged Gangster Disciples Indicted in Memphis -

A federal grand jury in Memphis has charged 16 alleged members of the Gangster Disciples street gang in a case linked to the separate indictment of 32 people in Atlanta, federal prosecutors announced Wednesday, May 4.

35. Anticipating Summer Travel Season -

May technically is still the shoulder season, but it’s the start of my summer travel season.

In fact, I have three trips planned this month, not necessarily because the prices are better and crowds are smaller, although those two things are always nice about May travel. I’m visiting San Antonio, Baltimore and Minneapolis this month. The Texas heat won’t be scorching and a windbreaker might be necessary still in Minneapolis and Baltimore.

36. Memphis Roller Derby Knocks Its Way to New Horizons -

In the 1970s Memphians could watch back-to-back broadcasts of professional wrestling and roller derby taking place at the Mid-South Coliseum.

The popularity of both full-contact sports eventually tapered off. While World Wrestling Entertainment has since developed a national audience, the latter has reemerged as a women-only sport with a grassroots following of computer geeks and soccer moms, said Brooke Gettys, co-captain with Memphis Roller Derby.

37. Memphis Football Camps To Start in June -

The University of Memphis football program will host six different camps in June and July, including a first-ever kids camp for third- to eighth-graders.

The inaugural Kids Camp is scheduled for June 7 on the U of M’s Park Avenue campus. The cost is $40 per child.

38. Move Over Drones, Driverless Cars – Unmanned Ship Up Next -

SAN DIEGO (AP) – It's not only drones and driverless cars that may become the norm someday – ocean-faring ships might also run without captains or crews.

The Pentagon on Monday showed off the world's largest unmanned surface vessel, a self-driving 132-foot ship able to travel up to 10,000 nautical miles on its own to hunt for stealthy submarines and underwater mines.

39. Memphis Attorney Speaks for Tunsil After Startling NFL Draft -

Although two quarterbacks – Jared Goff and Carson Wentz – were the first two players selected in last weeks’ NFL Draft, an Ole Miss offensive lineman and the 13th overall pick made most of the headlines.

40. Lawson in Line to Be Tigers’ Director of Player Personnel -

The ever-moving story of whether Keelon Lawson, father of freshmen forwards Dedric and K.J. Lawson, would have a place on the new University of Memphis basketball staff has taken another turn.

First, multiple media outlets reported that both new coach Tubby Smith and Keelon Lawson had confirmed that Lawson, who had been an assistant the past two years under Josh Pastner, would have a non-coaching role. Specifically, Keelon Lawson would become director of player personnel.

41. Grinding Recovery -

Michael Drury is watching the current U.S. presidential season with a combination of professional detachment and an air of resignation.

Detachment, because part of his job as chief economist at Memphis-based McVean Trading & Investments is to keep abreast of what makes economies around the world tick. Part of that, of course, means at least some degree of focus on the man – or, possibly a few months from now, the woman – who sits astride the dominant global economy.

42. Overton Greensward Overcast Weekend Offers Temporary Interlude -

For a few hours Saturday morning, April 30, in Overton Park there was no one on the Greensward – no cars, no zoo crew, no protesters, no yoga class, no dogs or dog walkers. On an overcast day, there wasn't even a shadow to be cast.

43. Roster Remix? Grizzlies May Finally Shake Things Up -

As amazing as it was that the Memphis Grizzlies set an NBA record by using 28 players this past season, it’s almost more unbelievable that they had to sign eight different players to 11 separate 10-day contracts.

44. Did ‘People Back Home’ Really Sway No Votes on Bible? -

I thought about skipping church Sunday and playing golf. After listening to the House of Representatives’ debate on the Bible bill, I could probably skip church for a month and still be in good standing.

45. CEO: No Guarantee on Delivery of TNReady Tests -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The president of a North Carolina-based testing company said Monday that he can't guarantee all students in Tennessee will receive the test on time.

46. Lawson in Line to Be Tigers’ Director of Player Personnel -

The ever-moving story of whether Keelon Lawson, father of freshmen forwards Dedric and K.J. Lawson, would have a place on the new University of Memphis basketball staff has taken another turn.

First, multiple media outlets reported that both new coach Tubby Smith and Keelon Lawson had confirmed that Lawson, who had been an assistant the past two years under Josh Pastner, would have a non-coaching role. Specifically, Keelon Lawson would become director of player personnel.

47. Ikea: 'Everything's on Track' for New Memphis Store -

A construction crew of nearly 500 is at work turning what is now a steel frame into Tennessee’s first Ikea store. This week, the crew began installing Ikea’s trademark cobalt-blue walls on the western edge of what will be a self-serve warehouse.

48. Keelon Lawson To Be Part of Tubby Smith’s Memphis Staff, Pending NCAA Action -

The ever-moving story of whether Keelon Lawson, father of freshmen forwards Dedric and K.J. Lawson, would have a place on the new University of Memphis basketball staff has taken another turn.

First, multiple media outlets reported that both new coach Tubby Smith and Keelon Lawson had confirmed that Lawson, who had been an assistant the past two years under Josh Pastner, would have a non-coaching role. Specifically, Keelon Lawson would become director of player personnel.

49. Mike Conley Leave the Grizzlies? Possible, but Unlikely -

The on-court business of the season finished – the San Antonio Spurs made sure of that – the Grizzlies now turn to the offseason.

Call it Mike Conley Free Agent Season, the natural sequel to Marc Gasol Free Agent Season.

50. Grizzlies' Season Ends with Heart and Tears -

Game 4 of this miserable first-round playoff sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs was almost done. Only a few minutes of garbage time remained.

And the question from Dave Joerger to veterans Matt Barnes and Vince Carter was a simple one: Do you want to stay out there, to keep playing, and to end this thing with your boots on?

51. Legislature Votes to Strip Funding From UT Diversity Office -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — State lawmakers voted to send a message that they don't agree with the sexually open and progressive views of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion on the University of Tennessee campus. So the Legislature on Thursday passed a bill stripping it of state funds — a total of nearly $337,000. The money will be used to fund minority scholarships instead.

52. Bid to Override Veto Of Bible Bill Fails -

A bid to override Gov. Bill Haslam’s veto of a bill to make Tennessee the first state to designate the Bible as its official book failed in the state House on Wednesday.

Forty-three members voted to re-pass the bill, falling well short of the 50-vote threshold to turn back to the veto.

53. Last Word: Prince, Violent Crime Numbers, and a Parkside Post Script -

Prince. It’s hard to think of a musician with a more complete knowledge of music as a social and cultural force and the ability to let that force inhabit his music and what he wanted to accomplish.
It is that knowledge and its use from obscurity to the pinnacle of fame and acclaim to his own journey for personal fulfillment that, to me, defines what has been lost.
Music mattered to Prince unlike it had ever mattered before. All of the influences analyzed and synthesized by someone born in rock and roll’s first wave pushed forward in a sound that combined rock and roll and rhythm and blues and funk with purpose and confidence.
It wasn’t a denial or downplaying of any of those music categories – all were present sonically and culturally. No juggling or quick changes.
That was his talent and it’s hard to think of anyone who has been as knowledgeable, intentional and successful -- commercially and artistically – in that combination.
Prince is remembered here for not only playing the city’s largest arenas but for his legendary after shows on Beale Street that brought an entertainment insider cachet the district has rarely seen since its early 1980s reopening.
His was an intensity and sense of purpose rarely seen and possessed in such a way in the 60 years since rock and roll started in this very city, kicked off by both Rocket 88 and That’s Alright Mama.
So why couldn’t the city’s rock radio stations do more than talk about Prince into commercial breaks after another Nickelback rock block and actually play some of his music to acknowledge such a huge genre crossing artist?
Not cool.

54. This Week in Memphis History: April 22-28 -

2011: The Mississippi River at Memphis hits 48 feet on the river gauge on its way to the second-highest level ever recorded.

1995: Cranberries at the Mud Island amphitheater.

1990: U.S. District Judge Odell Horton rejects word from the jury in the bank fraud trial of U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Sr. that it is hopelessly deadlocked and sends them back for more deliberations. Horton is upset that the jury foreman also blurted out the vote count on the panel before Horton stopped him. Horton soon would declare a mistrial, citing problems with the jury that included a juror who slept beneath a table in the jury room during deliberations. The FBI also investigates the jury’s conduct but no charges are ever filed in connection with it.
Ford and his co-defendants would be tried a second time and acquitted of all charges.

55. Editorial: Unlocking the Real Benefits of Regionalism -

It’s easy to say regionalism should be a goal – that the leadership of all of our communities should work together for the common good of the region.

And it’s been said so often that general appeals for regionalism have become meaningless.

56. Financial Planning Is More Than Just Asset Management -

Ray’s take: A common confusion when looking for someone to help you make decisions about your financial future is understanding the difference between asset management and financial planning.
The alphabet soup of designations in today’s market can be confusing regarding what, specifically; a particular professional can do for you.

57. Memphis’ Shrinking Population Cause for Concern -

Even as Memphis has grown larger through annexing surrounding communities, its population has steadily dwindled due to outmigration to the surrounding suburbs. Inner-city struggles will become more pronounced if this region’s wealthiest tax base continues that outward pattern, national experts say.

58. Rudolph: The Hidden Story -

This column is about Rudolph, the reindeer with the red nose. Or, rather, the literature via which he was created. I heard that it all started in a department store. Could this be true?

After investigation, I can report that Rudolph indeed was the 1939 brain child of a 34-year-old Montgomery Ward copywriter.

59. Memphis' Startup Accelerators Teaming Up This Summer -

For several years now, Memphis hasn’t been home to a unified hub of startup companies and activities so much as a collection of startup archipelagos, the disparate factions of activity sometimes duplicating the work of other groups.

60. Grizzlies Hope to Grind Out a Playoff Win at Home -

April 22, 2004. The Memphis Grizzlies’ first home playoff game in franchise history at The Pointed House now known as Bass Pro Shops.

Hubie Brown was the Grizzlies coach then, and the NBA’s Coach of the Year for overseeing a 50-win season. The Gasol on the team was Pau and Bonzi Wells was the more controlled forerunner to Lance “Born Ready” Stephenson.

61. Veto Of Bible As Official Tenn. Book Survives Challenge -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee has a state reptile, a state rock and a state song in the moonshine-themed "Rocky Top." For now, though, the Bible will not be its official state book.

62. Finding a Compromise on the Greensward Issue -

The current debate over the Memphis Zoo’s use of the Greensward for overflow parking is more complex than most realize. Opponents of this usage try to paint a very compelling picture of the Zoo as a massive, profit-driven enterprise which came into Overton Park like an invasive species and has recklessly expanded, gobbling up park land and taking it away from the citizens.

63. Melzie Wilson Appointed To Commerce Advisory Committee -

Melzie Wilson, vice president of compliance at Mallory Alexander International Logistics, has been appointed to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Advisory Committee on Supply Chain Competitiveness by secretary of commerce Penny Pritzker. In her role at Mallory Alexander, Wilson is responsible for all government regulations the company must comply with, both in the U.S. and globally.
She’s also responsible, along with a compliance team, for ensuring Mallory Alexander’s clients stay compliant.

64. AMC U-Turns; Texting in Theaters Now on 'Cutting Room Floor' -

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Oops. The idea lasted about as long as a Snapchat text: the head of AMC Theatres mulled openly about creating texting-friendly movie theaters to appeal to smartphone-addicted youngsters. Two days later, after a backlash on social media, the company says it's leaving the idea on "the cutting room floor."

65. First Horizon Reverses Loss in First Quarter -

With its first quarter results, First Tennessee Bank’s parent company is off to the kind of start to the year any large banking organization would love to report – a reversal of losses, abundant capital to deploy and metrics like loans and deposits trending in the right direction.

66. Middle Tennessee construction can’t meet demand -

When it comes to residential real estate around Middle Tennessee, there are plenty of buyers but not nearly enough sellers, says Heather Benjamin with Reliant Realty’s Benjamin McConnell Group. And new construction just can’t keep up with the demand.

67. Editorial: Baseball's Impact Goes Beyond the Outfield -

Memphis is not a baseball town. And at times there are questions about the rest of the country.

But while the fields are fresh and the ballpark air is a mix of the last winter chill and a premonition of the summer heat, there is the game that beckons.

68. Southern Yankee -

To best understand another man’s baseball passion, you must first understand his baseball pain. So if you hope to truly understand Peter B. Freund, new majority owner of the Memphis Redbirds, you must travel back to his youth.

69. A Look at the Numbers -

Ray’s Take: The economy is in flux and there’s a lot of uncertainty over the direction of the capital markets and interest rates. It’s a familiar refrain by this point. Volatility has increased to a numbing level where perhaps we aren’t paying attention as closely as we should to what’s happening in the financial world around us.

70. R.I.P. Sears Laurelwood -

DOUG, JANICE, SUSAN, PETE, DAD. AND SEARS. Doug Ford – two-time major winner and golf Hall of Famer – is 93, and coincidently that’s what I shot at Ridgeway last week.
Janice was a high school girlfriend, and she liked her horse a lot more than me. Susan was a junior-high girlfriend, or whatever you are when you’re 12, and our relationship was worth peanuts. Pete was my best friend, and just about the coolest things we’d ever seen were vending machines that served hot food and Cokes in cups. My father believed in my mother, the United States Navy and Sears – because whatever story he was telling or advice he was giving, at least one and probably all three got in the conversation.

71. Last Word: Tubby Fever, School Closings and March Real Estate Numbers -

The Tigers basketball grapevine is nothing but Tubby Smith as of Wednesday when the speculation was joined by torrent of rumors about contact between the Texas Tech coach and the University of Memphis.
Smith has now acknowledged he’s talking with the U of M.
More background on Smith from The Sporting News and Mike DeCourcy, a former sports reporter at The Commercial Appeal, that came out before everything went Tubby here.

72. University of Memphis Alumna’s Book Sheds Light on Jackie O -

For about three decades, Tina Santi Flaherty and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis lived in the same New York City apartment building. “I wasn’t friends with Jackie,” Flaherty said. “But I’d see her in the lobby and we had a nod-and-smile acquaintance.”

73. Legislators Playing Expensive Game With LGBT Issues -

The silly season is in full swing on Capitol Hill, but the “bathroom bill” and any jokes surrounding it are no laughing matter anymore. It’s getting downright expensive.

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery said this week the bill dealing with transgender student use of restrooms could cost the state more than $1.2 billion in federal funds for K-12 and higher education.

74. Mental Agility Is No Bad Goal -

“Mental agility” has been defined as “cognitive and psychological adaptability, or the ability to think rapidly and creatively under stress.” A site called “Mind Fitness Training Institute” says that “an agile mind … can anticipate or quickly adapt to uncertain or changing situations. …”

75. Last Word: Off and Running, Lawson Sticks and Downtown Office Space -

Now that you’ve had time to behold the large field of contenders in the Republican primary for the 8th Congressional District – all 13 – they are on the road campaigning on the way to the Aug. 4 election day.
And it’s quite a road with a lot of different scenery.
Former U.S. Attorney David Kustoff is one of the seven contenders in the race from Shelby County. He hit the road Monday for three days of stops in each one of the 15 counties in the district.

76. Bill Seeks to Halt Gun Carry Permits for Ex-Police With DUIs -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – State Rep. Curry Todd, a retired Memphis police officer who has pleaded guilty to drunken driving and gun charges, is speaking out against Gov. Bill Haslam's proposal to keep retired law enforcement officers with DUI convictions from being able to carry firearms in public.

77. Downtown Gets Creative With Office Users -

The Downtown Memphis Commission is rebranding Memphis’ urban core to attract millennials and fill in office space vacancies with the next creative firm or startup.

Announced in November, “My HQ is Downtown” is a comprehensive marketing strategy that sells Downtown as a creative hotspot.

78. The Evolving Role of Design, Part Two -

Editor’s note: Part two of a two-part series. We are talking about Big Design, Big D, Meta D. Designing the energetics, level of interaction, the culture of work, and the methods of inquiry, creation and production – the invisible infrastructure of how all pieces and parts of an organization and the world interrelate.

79. Rapid Transit Option, Route Changes Designed To Make MATA More Relevant -

Budget season is looming, and the Memphis Area Transit Authority is angling for an additional $8 million in operating funds and $5 million in capital improvement dollars to prevent significant cuts to service.

80. Time for Strunk to Become Titans' Most Valuable Player -

Quick question about the Titans: Who has the most to prove?

Is it Mike Mularkey, a two-time loser as a head coach?

Is it Jon Robinson, a first-time general manager?

81. Moving Dirt -

The Memphis development community is looking inward and upward to increase density in the urban core. New construction is happening across all four commercial real estate sectors, with long-anticipated projects like Trader Joe’s and the redevelopment of Central Station finally coming to fruition. Construction and operating costs continue to be a challenge as new projects hit the top of their class to command higher rents.

82. Last Word: Pastner's Georgia Tech Post-Season, Who Filed and Greensward Invitations -

Not so fast with the off-season. There is a Memphis post-season after all.

And the Grizz found it Thursday like a light at the end of a long-tunnel where a lot of people slipped and fell and can’t get up.
The light was Houston flaming out at home to Phoenix without the Grizzlies having to make a basket.
It’s all about the math. Stay in school, young people.

83. Senate Refuses to Stop Airlines From Shrinking Seat Sizes -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate refused Thursday to come to the aid of airline passengers squeezed by the ever-shrinking size of their seats.

An amendment by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., would have blocked airlines from further reducing the "size, width, padding, and pitch" of seats, passengers' legroom and the width of aisles. "It costs you an arm and a leg just to have room for your arms and legs," Schumer said.

84. QB Paxton Lynch Passes Pro Day Test, But Questions Remain -

In the immediate aftermath of Paxton Lynch’s pro day at the University of Memphis, it sort of felt like the postgame following a season-opening victory over a lesser non-conference opponent.

Good, satisfying in the moment, and hopeful for the future. But not necessarily an accurate predictor of what is to come.

85. Daughter of Duality, Gibbs is Building a Better Justice System -

Say you stole a television worth $300. How long should you be punished? A year? Five years? Whatever you answered, it probably wasn’t “for the rest of your life.” But that’s how the U.S. legal system currently treats many people who have been convicted of felonies.

96. Last Word: Encore In D, A Bus Every 10 Minutes and Marc Cohn in Memphis -

Encore in Nashville.
The state Senate’s state and local government committee meets again Wednesday to vote on the de-annexation bill it completed amending Tuesday.

This begins at 2:30 p.m. and we will be providing live Tweets of the action @tdnpols, www.twitter.com/tdnpols. So join us.
Because there was so much debate and parliamentary swordplay Tuesday, the Wednesday session will probably be pretty matter of fact by comparison.
Here’s our account of how it went down with the committee upping the percentage of voters signatures it takes to get a deannexation call on the ballot. And those who do vote to deannex can add payments for benefits liability to what they would also pay as their share of capital debt. There is also reaction from Greater Memphis Chamber president Phil Trenary.
Trenary had some choice words for Chattanooga state Senator Todd Gardenhire who called out Memphis specifically for what he viewed as trying to make the deannexed pay twice for benefits of city workers.
The looming question is what will the reaction to this be in the House which passed a very different version of this.
The proponents of the bill in the House and Senate have fundamentally different views that appear to be the kind of differences that would take some time to reconcile.
