11. Novel Approach -

The smallest of the city’s 17 public libraries is also one of its most used. The Frayser Branch library is a brick-and-glass rectangle on a half-acre at 3712 Argonne St. With some modest columns and shrubs, a few planters and cinderblock lattice work, it is shoe-horned into the side of a hill in a residential neighborhood a block from the commercial corridor of North Watkins Road still dominated by churches.

12. Heir on the Side of Caution -

14. Good Morning -

RANDOM OBSERVATIONS OF A MORNING. As I write this, I’m out of town and just finished reading an email from friend Gene. He was sharing a few deep thoughts and life questions people have shared with him. Since I found several of them funny enough to spill my coffee on my hosts’ floor and read out loud to people who just woke up, I think I’ll just turn this week’s column over to Gene and get some more coffee.

18. Last Word: Bougie Strippers, Tigers Basketball First Looks and County Pay Raises -

The topics get your attention: “Mental Illness in Tech” – a “Guide to Being a Bougie Stripper” – “Why I Quit TV News” – “Dyslexic and Proud.” These are just a few of the dozen talks -- strictly timed at five minutes each -- scheduled for Thursday’s Ignite Memphis event at Ballet Memphis in Overton Square. This is built loosely on the principle of a Ted talk although we also have a local version of TEDx coming up in January.

19. Mickell Lowery Uses Lessons From Council Race in Commission Bid -

Two years to the month after he conceded defeat in his first political outing, Mickell Lowery is returning to the local political arena – albeit a different part of the arena.

The name of the westernmost point of the Wolf River Greenway is still a working title. But the 115 acres on the north end of Mud Island has emerged from decades of overgrowth, used tires other materials dumped there to become an actual park.

22. 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.

Average home sales prices in downtown Memphis have seen significant improvements the past several years as we slowly crawled our way out of the worst housing crisis in recent history.

Through the first eight months of this year, average prices downtown have reached just over $275,000, up 6% from the same period of 2016. While downtown’s home sales only comprise 4% of the total home sales in the city of Memphis, average prices downtown are 129% higher than the city’s average of $120,298, which is up 3% from last year.

26. 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. But there also are some destinations that just seem to make more sense from Labor Day to the start of the holiday season at Thanksgiving. Here are my top U.S. fall destinations on my radar for travel this year.

27. The Week Ahead: Sept. 4-10 -

Hello, Memphis – and Happy Labor Day! Hopefully the promise of an exciting football season and Memphis Redbirds playoff games will help ease you back into work mode after the three-day weekend. Both are in store – along with Goat Days and much more – in The Week Ahead...

28. Last Word: Football In The Rain, Shakespeare in Cordova and The Grizz Roster -

There are moments in the history of sports amateur and professional that involve turn outs like the one Thursday at the Liberty Bowl for the Tigers football season opener. There were the people who ran the St. Jude marathon in the ice several years back even after the race was cancelled. Going back to the 1980s, there were those who came out in below freezing temps for Alabama Coach Bear Bryant’s last game that came at the annual Liberty Bowl.

29. Editorial: Memphis Still on Road To Becoming ‘Bike Community’ -

32. Last Word: Kustoff at Rotary, Royal's Vibe and The Terms of MEMPOWER -

The investment group that renovated the Chisca resurfaced Tuesday evening with a plan for the Wonder Bread factory, vacant for the last four years. But don’t look for a return of the bread smell to the Edge area. And if you look at what has started to happen in that particular corridor since Wonder Bread shut down, the mixed-use plan has some precedent. Throw in the move to sell The Commercial Appeal property just a few blocks away and if the economy remains this good, the transformation in this area could be radical in another four years.

33. Levitt Shell Seeks to Use Shipping Containers -

The Levitt Shell could be getting a new look in the coming months. Representatives from the popular Overton Park concert venue have applied for a conditional use permit with the Shelby County Board of Adjustment to add repurposed shipping containers to be used as a permanent retail structure.

39. Last Word: Carousel Preview, New Crime Stats and EDGE Does Multi-Family -

The group Friends of the Fairgrounds got together Thursday evening at the Children’s Museum of Memphis and got the first group tour of the Grand Carousel center under construction at CMOM.

Here’s a look from our Facebook page with more to come on CMOM and the Fairgrounds for the Monday edition that will probably go up on line Friday.

In 1967, the Vietnam War was in full effect, the Green Bay Packers won the first ever Super Bowl and two employees of Joyner, Heard & Jones Realtors in Memphis had the idea to start their own company.

42. Last Word: Derailed, The View From Pyramid Harbor and New History -

“Do Not Occupy” notices posted Thursday afternoon on most but not all of the newly-opened Railgarten complex on Central Avenue east of Cooper in Midtown. Local code officers acted after questions about whether the owners of the complex had approval for intermodal containers being used as part of the structure. The restaurant part of the structure in what was once an ice house remains open. There was already a lot of grumbling from neighbors about the music volume and late hours as well as parking for the development

45. Last Word: St. Jude Dollar Amounts, Fred's On The Move and The Treble Clef -

Grizz over the Trailblazers 88 – 86 Thursday evening at the Forum. At the end of the first half, Grizz coach David Fizdale had to be restrained by players on the way off the court after a technical was called on him. And welcome to Memphis, Toney Douglas. We love what you are doing with the fourth quarter.

46. Growing Pains -

In many ways, Citizens to Preserve Overton Park v. Volpe in 1971 shaped the way Midtown Memphis looks today, so it’s only fitting that the park continues to inspire citizens to fight for what they feel is right.

49. Last Word: In Defense of The Cossitt, Joe Royer and 3 Months Since The Bridge -

Citizens of Memphis, I rise in defense of the city’s first public library. Not in its original much-loved state but in defense of its much-ridiculed modernization.

No, I will not follow that with a defense of John Calipari or the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s location in Cleveland instead of Memphis or the late Mo’ Money Taxes and the company’s commercials. But I reserve the right to, at some future date, defend the big silver sculpture thing on the northeast corner of Front and Poplar at the Cannon Center.

50. Locally Produced Drink Concept Memfizz Expanding Around City -

The owners of Otherlands Coffee Bar didn’t realize at first they had a hit on their hands, one with wider commercial potential.

About a month ago, Otherlands owner Karen Lebovitz and her husband Steve Cantor took a fizzy, natural probiotic soda they’d been offering at the coffee spot out to the wider world. They branded it Memfizz, hooked up with Memphis-based consultancy Southern Growth Studio, and after just a month have put the product on the shelves in 12 Memphis locations.

56. The Week Ahead: May 23-29 -

Alright, Memphis, it’s time to get this week started with our roundup of happenings you need to know about. 

The 2016 Memphis In May International Festival closes out Saturday with a pair of new additions to the monthlong lineup.
The Saturday by the river begins with the Great American River Run – a half-marathon and a 5K run with a riverside and Downtown route. There is, of course, a post-race party, which then segues into 901Fest – four stages in Tom Lee Park featuring local music and arts, from Al Kapone and Frayser Boy to the North Mississippi Allstars to Opera Memphis and the New Ballet Ensemble & School.
The idea here, and it may be an evolving concept, seems to be local and diverse and not as much of an emphasis on the stages and what happens there at the expense of those who stay after the run and those who come for the music and the arts.
To dot the I on that point, 901Fest also includes an air show.

57. Events -

Tennessee Small Business Development Center will host a workshop on government contracting Thursday, May 19, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Renaissance Business Center, 555 Beale St. The University of Tennessee’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center will teach small-business owners how to successfully compete for government contracts.

64. 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.

65. RKA Construction Building A Reputation for High-End Work -

Ryan Anderson sums up the homebuilding profession as taking one of two approaches.

The first is the old-school craftsman who builds a high-quality product. It’s a nice house with a lot of details. As a one-person business, that craftsman might have a strong focus on the finished product but isn’t able to juggle all the tasks necessary to operate a business, from tracking budgets, ordering materials and handling schedules, to communicating with clients and chasing new work.

67. Last Word: The View Across The Harbor, Crosstown Undercurrents and Bonnaroo -

The fishing puns are overpowering as Bass Pro Shops expresses its interest in redeveloping Mud Island River Park, on the other side of the city harbor from the Pyramid Bass Pro Shops opened at just this past May.
Bass Pro Shops is one of five companies to express interest in Mud Island as part of the process by the Riverfront Development Corporation to go a different way with the park.
The RDC released the names of the companies Thursday.
Earlier this month, we outlined the RVC Outdoor Destinations proposal.
We don’t know nearly as much about what Bass Pro Shops has in mind or the other three firms.
All five now head for what amounts to a second round in which they submit specific plans to a search committee of the RDC including how they will pay for their plans.

68. Last Word: Secrets In A Small Town, Bullard Bounce and Beale & Mud Island -

Munford! A winning Powerball ticket for the largest jackpot ever was sold in Munford and that warrants a rare exclamation mark.
Possibly two when you consider that small towns are supposed to be places where it is nearly impossible to keep a secret – at least from the other folks in the town.
The fact that it was sold at Naifeh’s, a long-standing Tipton County business institution adds to the story.
The person who bought the ticket in Munford holds one of three winning tickets which comes out to about $582 million for that ticket.
That is roughly the size of the city of Memphis operating budget.
There was a similar mystery underway Thursday in Dyersburg where someone bought a Powerball ticket worth a paltry $2 million. Probably worth an exclamation mark if I wasn’t over the limit and already feeling the unspoken disdain of my reporting brethren who are judging me harshly as you read this.

69. Last Word: The River, Miss Cordelia's, OPEB and the Kumbaya Council -

Here comes the river. Not quite at 40 feet on the Mississippi River gauge at Memphis overnight but getting there
For those who weren’t around in 2011 when the river crested at 48.3 feet, the second highest level ever recorded at Memphis, this is the part of the program where lots of people begin to gather at the river.
For some it will be to compare what they've seen before. For others it will be their first look and experience with the concept that nature is bigger than we are.
The smaller those first-time river visitors are, the easier it is for them to accept that. After all, when you are always looking up at the world everything is bigger than you are.
In Tom Lee Park you see them step onto the park's grass, their eyes riveted on the west, perhaps not seeing much beyond the grass at first, a small hand poking out of a coat sleeve shielding their eyes from the sun. And then their first glimpse of the running brown water. And the walk inevitably becomes a run and then a quick halt as the immensity of the river kicks in. Always the two together even when the river is just being eternal.

70. Miss Cordelia’s Adapts To Customers’ Needs -

Amidst a constantly changing grocery scene in the Memphis area, Miss Cordelia’s keeps plugging along in Harbor Town on Mud Island.

But don’t think the neighborhood grocer is sitting back waiting on customers to walk through the doors. The business’ 35 employees aren’t paying as close attention to the national grocery brands expanding or joining the market farther to the east because they’re focused more on listening to customers to better understand what they want.

71. Mississippi River at Memphis Approaches Flood Stage -

As the Mississippi River was nearing flood stage at Memphis Saturday, Jan. 2, Memphis firefighters were preparing to go door-to-door in Harbor Town on Mud Island.

The visits are not an evacuation. They are “to notify residents about the high water threat,” said Dale Lane, director of the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.

72. Midway Point -

A quality, affordable neighborhood for low- to moderate-income Memphians. That’s developer Henry Turley’s ongoing vision for Uptown, a North Memphis neighborhood benefiting from $150 million in redevelopment efforts.

73. December Welcomes Batch of Memphis Holiday Markets -

By the time everyone has put up the tinsel, taken down the trees and is counting down the days until 2016 arrives, the month of December will have seen at least half a dozen holiday markets, stores and pop-up shops unfold around Memphis.

74. Harbor of Health Hints at Industry’s Changing Focus -

Hospitals are transitioning more services to ambulatory care models in an effort to bring health care closer to communities where patients live and work.

Regional One Health’s ambulatory strategy includes embedding services in communities where it is designing practices that meet basic medical services. That strategy includes operation of Harbor of Health in Harbor Town, part of Regional One’s long-term goal to offer convenient services in different parts of the city that are away from the main campus in the Medical District. The location in Harbor Town and its extended hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. make it convenient for Downtown residents and employees.

75. Mix It Up -

Memphis’ development eye is turning inward and upward as mixed-use projects are becoming more common than ever before.

Usually a mode of survival for densely packed cities, residential, office, retail and even manufacturing are cohabitating in single mixed-use buildings or lots as a way to recoup Memphis’ sprawl. Downtown and Midtown are being combed for infill and adaptive reuse possibilities as millennials are moving to the urban core in droves.

76. Hotel Density Fuels Memphis Convention Center Ambitions -

The best indicator that the national recession was lifting in Memphis was the emergence this year of numerous plans for new hotels and motels.

But aside from Whitehaven’s 450-room, $90 million Guest House at Graceland, most of the planned projects are small. And the smaller hotels do little to resolve the long-standing chicken-and-egg question about which should come first – more hotel rooms or more and better convention space.

77. Photographers Create Broad Avenue Studio Partnership -

Creative individuals often do their best work in isolation.

But sometimes collaboration can go a long way in furthering a mission, particularly when it’s a group of creative small-business owners looking to take their respective entities to another level.
