5. Last Word: The First Surrogate, Parkside at Shelby Farms and Manilow Memories -

Here they come, fresh from Iowa and New Hampshire – first the surrogates and in the next two weeks the Presidential contenders themselves.

The nation’s “first surrogate” – former President Bill Clinton is at Whitehaven High School Thursday evening to rally early voters in the heart of a large reliably Democratic middle class community.
And it is that voter base that was integral to Barack Obama carrying Shelby County in the 2008 Democratic Presidential primary even as Hillary Clinton carried the state that year.
As mentioned here Tuesday, the local Bernie Sanders campaign opens its Memphis HQ over the weekend.
Hillary Clinton headquarters in Memphis and Nashville are on the way soon with the Nashville HQ opening Thursday as the former President is in Whitehaven and the candidate is preparing for another television debate Thursday in Milwaukee with Sanders.
And early voting opened Downtown Wednesday.
The first day's turnout Wednesday was 177 early and absentee voters. Combined with another 645 absentee votes cast before the early voting period, that makes 822 early or absentee votes.
Another Republican contender on the ballot in Tennessee is out of the race. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie dropped out the day after his dismal finish in New Hampshire. He did not have a slate of delegates on the ballot here.

9. Last Word: New Minority Business Numbers, The House Affair and The Heights -

The recently revived discussion on minority business in Memphis is about to go back on the front burner again. Fueling the intensity are new U.S. Census numbers. They show the percentage of business receipts in Memphis produced by black-owned businesses has dropped since the 2007 census numbers showed a 1.08 percent share of those receipts by black-owned businesses. That in a city whose population is 63 percent African-American.
The drop to below one percent is even though the overall receipts in 2012 were higher than they were in 2007.
Madeline Faber is the first to report the new numbers as part of a cover story in our weekly, The Memphis News, that will be on the streets and in the racks Saturday, on-line Friday afternoon.
The numbers are such a telling story and such an important indicator that we broke it out as its own story in advance of the cover story.

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.

The stock market took investors for a wild ride in 2015, but in the end it was a trip to nowhere.

It’s not hard to find remnants of Whitehaven’s past in a drive down Elvis Presley Boulevard, but none of those reminders are as vivid as the 122-year-old Whitehaven High School.

88. Mid-South Book Fest Brings Authors, Readers Together -

Traveling city to city, visiting bookstore after bookstore is how Harrison Scott Key spent the summer marketing his debut novel, “The World’s Largest Man: A Memoir.”

It can be challenging, Key said, to go from store to store, never knowing how many people might actually show up. But that method of marketing shifts to the book festival circuit, which runs roughly from Labor Day through Memorial Day at spots across the U.S., including the second edition of the Mid-South Book Festival, Sept. 9-13, in Memphis.

89. Events -

Literacy Mid-South will host the second annual Mid-South Book Festival Wednesday, Sept. 9, through Sunday, Sept. 13, at Playhouse on the Square (66 S. Cooper St.) and Circuit Playhouse (51 S. Cooper). The literary event will feature more than 80 local and national authors, writing workshops, panel discussions, a street fair and more. Visit midsouthbookfest.org for a schedule.

90. Editorial: Small Business is Big in Importance, Impact -

96. Editorial: Fairgrounds To-Do List Grounded in Reality -

Let’s cut to the chase with the Fairgrounds.

Whatever new activity comes next may be a catalyst, but it’s time to stop pretending the Mid-South Fairgrounds is a blank slate. It’s time to stop using 10-year-old prerecession marketing studies to steer the project away from what should happen and instead toward something Mayor A C Wharton Jr.’s administration wants to happen.

97. Fairgrounds’ Future -

It’s hard to imagine that a 65,000-seat stadium could be overlooked. Perhaps it’s because the Liberty Bowl wasn’t in the center of the Mid-South Fairgrounds when the stadium was built in 1965; it was on the eastern side of 155 acres of city-owned land, with a rail spur running along its eastern boundary.
