10. Last Word: One for Graceland, Randy Boyd in Millington and Green Eyeshades -

12. Last Word: After The Tom Lee Storm, Tiger Lane Changes and Crosstown Growth -

A year ago many of you were without power in the wake of a sudden and violent storm that has come to be known as the Tom Lee Storm. It is the third most powerful storm, according to Memphis Light Gas and Water Division, in terms of those without power and the damage done.

It hasn’t been this hot in 30 years … to the day. The high Monday of 93 degrees eclipsed the old record for the day of 91 degree in 1988. I’m not much of a thermometer watcher. But this did get my attention because I was imagining all of the big hair emergencies 30 years ago. Guys going to their closets to break out the Miami Vice pastel t-shirts and linen blazers. And of course California Raisins hysteria. And I do find it not entirely coincidental that we break a record from 1988 as there is talk of a remake of the movie “Willow.” We could break another record for all of this Tuesday and we’ll see what my mind does with the year of the old record if that’s the case.

16. Last Word: Mimeo Move, Food Fight and Sundquist for Blackburn -

There aren’t any renderings just yet of what a second convention center hotel with the 100 North Main Building as its centerpiece would look like. That’s probably a good thing for now because some of the specs and the footprint are still in flux. The developers of the proposed convention center hotel said as the weekend began that they plan a 600 room hotel and a complex that includes two 30-story towers in addition to the 37-story tall 100 North Main Building – the tallest building in the city.

21. Last Word: Graceland's New Map, Weighted Caseloads and Rallings on Duran -

I’ve been thinking a lot about the term budget season and what that means in our political culture. My thought is we need to make this more season than process in the same way that we have made May more than just the last full month of spring. We should celebrate reprogramming and enterprise funds.
