3. Last Word: Keeping Kirby Together, Out of State Tuition and Memphis at Navy -

I’ve seen school officials have some pretty interesting conversations with parents and students over the last few decades – explaining the school merger comes to mind immediately, of course the demerger too, along with the always charged conversations surrounding busing and even the kidnapping of a child from a school building.

7. Last Word: Tiger Fortunes, Union Mission Expansion and Beale Cause and Effect -

The Tigers open the football season Saturday at the Liberty Bowl against Mercer and many of you are ready for football season – college or NFL but rarely both – to begin. Never mind that the World Series still awaits in October or that every time I look up at an NFL pre season game someone is running a kickoff back from one end zone to another because no one wants anyone to hit too hard out there until it counts.

8. Even with Jeremiah Martin’s Surgery, Tiger Hoops Fans Can Be Hopeful -

The rumor turned out to be a reality. Sure enough, the best player from last season’s University of Memphis basketball team had surgery last Monday.

14. Last Word: Bob Smith Talks, Crosstown Anniversary and Grant's Parking Lot -

Almost there for the November ballot with Thursday’s qualifying deadline for the contenders in the five sets of elections in five of the six suburban towns and cities.

Something of a surprise in one of the Millington alderman races.

18. USL Memphis Coach Tim Mulqueen Embraces Expansion Challenge -

Let’s get the hard part out of the way first, the thing that might make you resistant to welcoming your first USL Memphis head coach. Tim Mulqueen is a rabid New York Knicks fan. Yes, the same team that now employs former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale.

29. Last Word: Early Voting Tea Leaves, More Sunflowers and Marketing the Airport -

The blitz is on to the last weekend of campaigning as early voting finishes up Saturday and election day awaits next Thursday. Some of the contenders on the ballot have their second wind.

All of them are still moving at various speeds in the Memphis summer of unrelenting heat, sun screen, three changes of campaign t-shirts per day, 100-foot markers at early voting sites, robo-calls, replaced yard signs, new direct mail pieces and voters who swear they voted for you even if they have no idea what you are running for.

To get an idea of what the future Memphis Sports Hall of Fame might look like, you can travel Interstate 40, stop in at Bridgestone Arena on Broadway in downtown Nashville, and see the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.

37. Grizzlies’ Front Office Makes Calculated Moves to Give Team Real Shot at Relevance -

We will not be granting general manager Chris Wallace and the rest of the Grizzlies’ front office absolution. Can’t do it. Too many bad draft picks over the years, the bungled Tyreke Evans situation, and the failure to sufficiently vet Chandler Parsons’ health, make that impossible.

38. The Week Ahead: July 16-22 -

Good morning, Memphis! The popular Roundhouse Revival at the Mid-South Coliseum returns this weekend, along with a retro skate night against the scenic backdrop of the Mississippi River at sunset. Check out those events and more happenings you need to know about in The Week Ahead...

47. Last Word: River Museum Review, Tigers' Blended Family and Oxford Crackdown -

It’s not the Gulf. It’s Lake Pontchartrain that draws the crowds on Mud Island. The Riverwalk replica of the Gulf of Mexico’s neighbor that is. A few adjustments is all it took to return authorized wading to the area at the end of the scale model of the Mississippi River. The river park is changing as it continues to make its way through the annual season from the summer and into the fall.

48. Memphis Basketball's New Players, Holdovers Pledge Unity and Common Goal: Winning -

The scout providing this insight? His grandmother.

50. Back to the Future -

The Memphis Grizzlies’ decision to move on from Zach Randolph and Tony Allen before last season was, if not on time, definitely not made too early. That said, the Grizzlies’ team-defense rating ranked 24th out of 30 teams in a 22-60 season. Of such tepid resistance the slogan Grit & Grind was not made.

51. Methodist Shapes Healthcare For a Century -

It was billed as the party of the century. It was a party that was one hundred years in the making. It was a worthy celebration of past successes entwined with the vision for the future of Methodist Health Systems and its positive impact in Memphis, and beyond.

52. Last Word: Draft Done, New Beale Moves and New Elvis -

Well, this is off to a rocky start. Jaren Jackson Jr. indicated he didn’t want to come to Memphis until minutes before the Grizz used their number 4 pick in Thursday evening’s NBA draft to select him and reverse years of bad history in draft selections. That was a lot to ask for in the pick of the youngest player in the draft at 18 years of age. But that’s what drafts in the NFL and NBA have come to be about – big moments, declaring victory and celebrating all before anything pans out.

53. Good Vibrations -

The first game in the next University of Memphis college basketball season is still more than four months away. But what’s four months when you’ve been waiting four years, or maybe even longer, for Tiger basketball to feel whole again?

54. Last Word: Draft Day, EDGE's Busy Plate and The Day After In D.C. -

There are two ways – at least -- to look at Thursday’s NBA draft. This could be the day that Hasheem Thabeet’s symbolic legacy, which has endured much longer than he was actually on Memphis soil, is put to rest or it could be the day he becomes a permanent part of Memphis basketball culture.

55. Memphis Women’s Hoops Adds 2 Coaches to Staff -

University of Memphis women’s basketball head coach Melissa McFerrin has announced the hiring of Amy Stephens and Michele Savage to the Tigers coaching staff. This will be Stephens’ second stint with Memphis after spending the 2013-14 season as McFerrin’s associate head coach. Both Savage and Stephens will assume an associate head coach title.

56. Last Word: 'Same Night Batteries,' Corker and Alexander React and ASD Results -

Things you notice in City Council chambers on a long council day: The clock on the wall in back of the chamber is placed over another clock – a clock built into the wall when City Hall opened in 1966 and since deprived of its hands. This came up because the clock in front stopped working Tuesday, the same day that the council got new microphones for a sound system that is consistently buggy.

57. Tiger Hoops Sees Boost In Season Ticket Sales -

62. Last Word: Bird Is The Word, Governors Quartet and Charlie Morris's Secret -

Former Vice President Joe Biden plays the Orpheum Friday evening. Maybe that isn't the right way to put it -- unless there's a drum solo no one is talking about. Free Bird?

I'll take it as further evidence of the new American politics that is evolving and is far from settled at this point. Politicians do paid speaking gigs all the time. And at times it is controversial. But the gigs are usually some kind of speaking fee to make remarks at a corporate function -- not selling individual tickets on line. This is ostensibly to promote Biden's new book and book deals and politicians go way back. But in a lot of cases, those are free events in a book store. When Biden was last here, it was as vice president at the Norfolk Southern intermodal rail yard in Rossville.

63. Hardaway: Sam Mitchell Will Join Tigers Staff -

University of Memphis head basketball coach Penny Hardaway confirmed that former NBA Coach of the Year Sam Mitchell is joining his coaching staff.

64. Editorial: Memphis’ Sports Heritage Tells Enduring Story -

How many Memphis sports franchises can you name? How many tickets to NFL exhibition games did you buy up to the city’s last push for an NFL team more than 20 years ago?

To some, the answers to those questions are a roadmap to a single pro franchise in an enduring league.

65. Grizzlies’ Henry to Attend World Cup Qualifying Camp -

69. RiverPlay Opens Friday At Tom Lee Park -

The two contenders for Shelby County Mayor in the Aug. 2 county general election – Democratic nominee Lee Harris and Republican nominee David Lenoir – meet for the first time in the general election campaign Wednesday at the Memphis Kiwanis Club weekly luncheon. It is the first of several debates between the two. And judging from what Harris and Lenoir have said separately and what we’ve reported from those appearances, this is a highly anticipated debate/discussion about the future of Shelby County on several fronts.

72. Memphis AD to Serve on NCAA Football Oversight Committee -

79. Last Word: Big River Summer, AuthenticAfrican Revealed and 100 North Main -

It’s the month that doesn’t have a festival with its name in the title, the month after the month that does have a festival bearing its name. It’s the month of heat and sun and heat lightning, lightning bugs and tourists and no school. Baseball before the All-Star break, politics past one set of primaries but before the other midterm primaries, budget seasons and the difference between the unrestricted fund balance and the restricted fund balance and patio society underneath the ferns. Welcome to June.

80. Let’s See What You Got -

THE REAL GAME. I’ve handled two kinds of Canadian Grizzlies. The first furry transplants played football in the World Football League, changing one of their two names from Northmen to Southmen when they arrived here from Toronto, and keeping their Grizzlies name/mascot/logo, too. I inherited all that as their ad agency.

81. Virtually Famous -

Grizz Gaming’s Mehyar Ahmed-Hassan (AuthenticAfrican) gets the ball beyond the arc, dribbles, hesitates, and then accelerates around the defender and drives all the way to the rim for a one-handed dunk. It appears effortless and the longer you watch the avatar that is AuthenticAfrican on the NBA 2K court, the clearer the conclusion becomes:

82. 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’s called the Tom Lee storm because the 1950s-era Tom Lee memorial in Tom Lee Park – the obelisk – was toppled and shattered as the obelisk fell from the base. A year later, the base that proclaims Tom Lee “a worthy Negro” remains and the obelisk is in storage.

83. Chiozza, Players With Local Connection Workout for Grizzlies -

Las Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley had a plan. It was an ambitious plan, but not a crazy plan. His expansion NHL team would strive to make the playoffs in three years and capture the Stanley Cup in six.

86. Last Word: Pete & Sam's and Barbecue, Neutral Turf and Ralph Wiley on Penny -

Pete & Sam’s, one of the city’s long running restaurants in a vibrant culinary scene, reopens Monday afternoon on Park Avenue following an extensive renovation following a major fire this past December. There should be lots of curiosity about what change looks like in a restaurant devoted to sticking with the past so much so that at times Pete & Sam’s and its reputation have been debated vocally among foodies. Kind of like the debate that occasionally surfaces over the Rendezvous and its place in our local world of barbecue.

87. Around Memphis: May 21, 2018 -

The Daily News offers a weekly roundup of Memphis-related headlines from around the web, adding context and new perspectives to the original content we produce on a daily basis. Here are some recent stories worth checking out…

88. Penny Hardaway Basketball Camps Begin in June -

University of Memphis basketball coach Penny Hardaway has announced a monthlong run of basketball camps that will begin June 5 and continue through June 28 on the school’s campus.

91. Last Word: Bar-B-Foo, Grizz Draft Prospects and The Hampline -

Alleged sightings of Dave Grohl at the barbecue contest Thursday in Tom Lee Park and a photograph from a distance that might or might not be the head Foo Fighter.

Sometimes not so quietly as when Vice President Al Gore returned in the 1990s to a contest he had a booth at during his time as a U.S. Senator.

92. Legal Sports Betting a Gamble for All -

The most impactful sports score of the week was this one: a 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down the federal law prohibiting sports gambling everywhere but in Nevada.

Going forward, the states can decide if they want to enter the legal sports betting marketplace. Mississippi is one of the few that appears to be in position to make the move sooner rather than later. Allen Godfrey, Mississippi Gaming Commission director, has said sports betting could be in the state’s casinos before the start of football season.
