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

9. Last Word: TNReady Termination, NFL Draft Day and What Drove The Bible Bill -

When students in public schools take tests these days, it is about more than how they are doing and whether they know what is being taught them.

The scores play a significant role in how teachers are evaluated and rated. And both play a role in their careers and how much they will be paid. They play a role in whether the state decides to take over a school or the school system they remain in decides to essentially start over with an Innovation School model.

18. Born to Play Football, Paxton Lynch Just Changing Leagues -

The player can’t tell you how it all started, not really. Neither can the player’s first coach and probably not the player’s dad.

No, to get to the root of things you turn to mom. Because mom will remember the details. And so as the countdown to the Thursday, April 28, NFL Draft turns from days to hours – experts of one stripe or another projecting how high former University of Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch will be taken – it’s good to step back for a moment.

22. Last Word: Grizz Aftermath, Mayor-A-Rama and Prince Saves Hendrix -

28. 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.

29. Press Box: Like Marc Gasol, Mike Conley Will Choose 901 -

Investing in people means the conventional and expected things. You can send high performers to leadership development, provide access and time for seminars and online learning.

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.

Tom Shadyac wants to pump $10 million into the heart of Soulsville. That’s the initial ask for his community center concept, One Family Memphis.

47. Parkinson: OK to ‘Go A Little Bit Extreme’ to Get Job Done -

With U.S. Marine Corps training, Rep. Antonio Parkinson knows how to grab people’s attention.

48. 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.

49. Murry-Drobot Brings Hope to Domestic Violence Survivors -

For the first seven years of her life, Olliette Murry-Drobot grew up in a home where her father physically abused her mother. It’s a harrowing experience she says she still grapples with.

50. Memphis Gets Proven Commodity in Tubby Smith -

It started immediately, before the hiring was even official. The audible sighs on sports talk radio, the Twitter whining, and the figurative eye-rolling.

53. 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.

54. 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. …”

Former Memphian Jennifer Wansley McCarthy of Illinois says she is labeled as a drug abuser and faces ridicule and humiliation on any given day.

57. UTHSC Center for Addictions Created to Save Lives -

Back when he was still jumping out of planes as an Army Green Beret, serving alongside some of the nation’s most elite fighters, Daniel Sumrok was also inflating lungs and patching bullet holes. The imperative to save lives was part of the job, and he checked that box repeatedly.

58. Regional One Health Pursues HIV Public Awareness Effort -

59. 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.

60. Greensward Controversy Shows Complex Mix of Groups -

No one from the Memphis Zoo or City Hall showed up for the Greensward box luncheon Saturday, April 9, despite the invitations sent out by Citizens to Preserve Overton Park.

CPOP leaders nevertheless gathered on the other side of the metal parking barrier in place on the Greensward for the second weekend. They dutifully stacked the box lunches and set a vase of flowers on another table near plastic cups and a glass pitcher of water.

61. 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.

62. Last Word: Pro Day, Hardwood Patios in C-Y and Memphis' Contested Convention -

It was a windy Pro Day Wednesday at the University of Memphis for Tigers quarterback Paxton Lynch. And if the wind wasn’t for you, you could watch Lynch work out for NFL teams and their representatives on the NFL network.
Don Wade was there to watch in person.

63. 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.

64. Student Loans: The Next Subprime Disaster? -

Ray’s Take: If you Google the words “student loan crisis,” millions of hits should convince you that this is a very hot topic.

According to the most recent Department of Education report released in September 2015, the federal loan default rate stands at 11.8 percent for borrowers who were required to start making payments during the 12 months prior to October 2012. While this is slightly lower than the previous report, it’s still not good. And the rate doesn't include borrowers who have been able to defer payments. Additionally, the most recent graduates will face the highest costs and will be emerging into what continues to be a very poor job market. We have every reason to believe that defaults are not only understated, but they will increase.

65. A Great Big Little Golf Course -

OVERTON EAGLES SOAR. When the city last talked about closing the Overton Park golf course, I told my story in a column.

Rumor has it, the course is in jeopardy again – a possible Greensward replacement – as if repurposing existing green spaces will justify destroying others, as if all the stories that have made the park so personal to so many are worth no more than a parking spot, as fleeting as a phone call from power to council.

66. Country Icon Merle Haggard, Champion of the Underdog, Dies -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Country giant Merle Haggard, who rose from poverty and prison to international fame through his songs about outlaws, underdogs and an abiding sense of national pride in such hits as "Okie From Muskogee" and "Sing Me Back Home," died Wednesday at 79, on his birthday.

67. Lawmakers Lure Us In With Momentary Sanity, And Then... -

Just when it appears the Tennessee Senate is made up of sensible people – as evidenced by the killing of de-annexation legislation – the body is changing course with a Bible-thumping measure.

68. Travel in a World of Warnings -

In the pre-dawn hours of March 22 I found myself awake and decided to check Facebook on my phone before attempting to go back to sleep.

The first update was from a friend who lives in Paris. Just four months prior, that friend declared herself safe on Facebook following the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks there.

69. Three Ways to Finish Last -

In the world of sales, we are conditioned to live life by the month. We are driven by monthly sales goals and monthly paychecks. But when we don’t take time to create a plan of attack at the start of each month, we are workhorses rather than stagecoach drivers.
We work reactively instead of proactively. We allow our sales pipelines to control us and ultimately find ourselves spending the last week of the month scrambling to close business and meet targets. 

70. Bill to Make Bible Tennessee's State Book Heads to Governor -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Derided by critics as everything from unconstitutional to sacrilegious, Tennessee lawmakers nevertheless plowed ahead with designating the Holy Bible as the state's official book.

72. Grizzlies Reeling with Desperate Bulls in Town Tuesday Night -

73. Last Word: Basketball Intervention, Medical Inventory and Memphis in the 1960s -

Five games left for the Grizzlies to win three and then get to play more in the NBA playoffs. And what seemed to be a foregone conclusion is now not such a sure thing based on the Grizz performance in Sunday’s 119-107 loss to the Orlando Magic in Orlando.

74. RedRover Hosts 10-Year Bash at FedExForum -

You know you’ve made it when you can throw a birthday party that draws guests like an NBA star in addition to a variety of high-powered business leaders.

Later this week, RedRover Sales & Marketing Strategy is hosting an invitation-only bash at FedExForum that will include a meet-and-greet session with Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen.

Why Ordinary Organizations Fail.”

Visit rhodes.edu/events/music for details.

79. Juvenile Life-Sentence Bill Dies in Tennessee Legislature -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A bill that would have allowed juvenile offenders to have shorter life-in-prison sentences has died in the Tennessee Legislature.

Under Tennessee law, any person who is currently sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole must serve an automatic 51 years behind bars before being eligible to be paroled. The bill would have allowed juveniles who are tried as adults to become eligible for parole after serving 30 years. It would have applied to juveniles convicted of first-degree murder.

80. Haslam Remains Opposed to Making Bible Official State Book -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Republican Gov. Bill Haslam said Wednesday that he remains opposed to a renewed effort to make the Holy Bible the official state book of Tennessee.

Haslam initially voiced opposition to the measure before it was derailed over constitutional concerns in the state Senate last year, and sent back to committee. The bill is now awaiting a new vote in the upper chamber of the Legislature.

81. Financial Advice is Not a Luxury -

Ray’s Take: There’s an old saying that if you don't know where you're going, it's difficult to get there. That is never truer than with your financial goals.

Financial goals give you something to strive for and help you course correct along the path. They also help you focus on the purpose of your efforts. The accumulation of money will do very little for your happiness unless you have a carefully constructed and regularly reviewed plan for what you’re going to do with it.

And in less than a half hour Wednesday, the de-annexation drama that should qualify as the political equivalent of a Netflix binge-watchable television series made just for Memphis was done.

Six people from Tennessee and Kentucky, including two Memphis men, are among the 61 prisoners who had their sentences commuted by President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

84. Tony Allen Sees his Bleak Chicago Existence in JIFF Kids -

As Tony Allen tells it, “I grew up in some of the hardest parts of Chicago.” And when he says “grew up,” he means survived.

85. Memphis Farmers Market Opens Season This Weekend -

The Memphis Farmers Market again will be open for business starting Saturday, April 2. It will feature more than 70 vendors and is a producer-only market.

The market is open Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Nov. 19. The market is located under the pavilion at Central Station at West G.E. Patterson and South Front Street in Downtown Memphis.

86. Grizzlies Have No Answers for Machine That Is The Spurs -

To find 31 point and 13 rebounds in the Grizzlies’ locker room, you would have had to gather two or three players together.

87. Last Word: Back to Nashville, Dentistry & Genomes and Living The Fable -

90. VW Scandal's Potential ‘Punishment’ Fits Electric-Car Strategy -

As part of its punishment for the emissions scandal, the EPA could also require VW to make electric or hybrid vehicles in Tennessee, according to several recent reports in the German press.

But that punishment might not be very painful.

91. Dodging a Disaster With Volkswagen? -

Next month will mark five years since the first Passat rolled off the assembly line at Chattanooga’s Volkswagen plant. Most anniversaries are a cause for celebration.
