Even now, Explore Bike Share founder Doug Carpenter does not try to pretend that the initiative will cure all that ails Memphis.

7. Last Word: Behind Grit N Grind, Brooks at 100 and Massacre -

This is a 12-month-a-year basketball town. There’s the season, possibly a post season, which by NBA standards is a second season. (Yep, they are still playing.)

8. Marchionne: Self-Driving Cars Could Be on Roads in 5 Years -

WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) – Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne says working with Google convinced him that self-driving technology is closer than he thought and could be on the road in five years.

11. Memphis Roller Derby Knocks Its Way to New Horizons -

In the 1970s Memphians could watch back-to-back broadcasts of professional wrestling and roller derby taking place at the Mid-South Coliseum.

14. Grinding Recovery -

Michael Drury is watching the current U.S. presidential season with a combination of professional detachment and an air of resignation.

Detachment, because part of his job as chief economist at Memphis-based McVean Trading & Investments is to keep abreast of what makes economies around the world tick. Part of that, of course, means at least some degree of focus on the man – or, possibly a few months from now, the woman – who sits astride the dominant global economy.

15. US Consumer Confidence Slips in April -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. consumers were feeling a little less confident in April, even though the stock market was rebounding from its February lows.

16. 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.

17. Memphis Jewish Home's Bobby Meadows Wins National Honor -

19. Hagler Launches Solo Practice as Real Estate Sector Picks Up -

Monice Moore Hagler grew up in a real estate family. Her father owned a real estate company and her brothers studied finance and real estate before going on to become brokers.

20. House Passes Resolution Directing State to Sue Over Refugees -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A resolution that would order Tennessee to sue the federal government over its refugee resettlement program passed Monday in the state House.

28. 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.

30. Local Nominees Sought for Annual Dunavant Awards -

46. Blight Fight Touts New Pathway, Partnerships -

The local effort to fight blight has been in recent years a machete-like action to cut through bureaucratic red tape and get possession of the most blighted properties.

So there have been a lot of press conferences where bulldozers are featured prominently to demolish the targeted property.

47. McDonald's Trial Gives Peek at Chain's Inner Workings -

NEW YORK (AP) – A pivotal trial against McDonald's that began this week is providing a peek into the inner workings of the maker of the Big Mac.

50. Last Word: Cubits Anyone, The G-Word and The TV News Crime Block -

How long is a cubit? After a day in which many of you got about four to five inches of rain and more to come Thursday, it seems an appropriate and timely question.
And yes, there is a cubit conversion chart on line for converting that and other really old units of measurement no longer in use like the mina, drachma or the synodic month.
So the average cubit, which is supposed to be the length of a forearm, is 18 inches or a foot and a half. That’s 0.4572 of a meter, which might as well be an ancient unit of measurement.
Someone had to say it.
According to biblehub.com – I’m not making up websites – the book of Genesis sets God’s instructions to Noah as an arc with the dimensions of 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits tall. And it was to be made out of gopher wood and covered inside and out with pitch.
The New Living Translation and Holman Christian Standard Bibles convert that to an arc 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high.

Women who own businesses must balance their time and prioritize important tasks constantly.

66. The Tipping Point -

Going to Harvard is a big deal no matter who you are. But going to Harvard when you’re a poor kid from Cameroon? That’s a home run. That’s what Gabriel Fotsing did. He grew up in Douala, moved to Houston and taught himself how to apply to college.

67. Teachers Wary of Haslam’s Push For Increased Pay -

DETROIT (AP) — Computers that control cars of the future can be considered drivers just like humans, the federal government's highway safety agency has decided.

So the University of Memphis isn’t exactly riding a wave of momentum into an important two-game homestand against American Athletic Conference foes Connecticut (8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4) and Cincinnati (11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 6). Both games will air on ESPN2.

74. Airlines Restore Tiny Perks, Like Pretzels, to Pacify Fliers -

A HISTORY LESSON TAUGHT, NOT LEARNED.

When I first wrote about attempts to steamroll Overton Park, a friend told me a great story.

Then Wednesday evening, as I was about to put this column together, I got an email from the former First Lady and Secretary of State and Democratic presidential contender.
The subject line cut to the chase: “We’re running out of time, Bill.”
The message itself, on a backdrop of Blue State blue read:

At the age of 39 and after 18 seasons in the NFL, Peyton Manning is approaching a crossroads. What does the future hold for him? Here are the most likely possibilities:

Continue playing: Despite growing injury concerns (a torn plantar fascia in his left foot kept him out of six games this season), Manning might want to play at least one more season. He is on a team that has a strong defense so he no longer has to put up huge offensive numbers in order to win, unlike the situation during most of his pro career.

Gov. Bill Haslam’s plan to restructure higher education didn’t take long to shake up the hierarchy.

The civil complaint against the German automaker, filed on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency in U.S. District Court in Detroit, alleges the company illegally installed software designed to make its diesel engines pass federal emissions standards while undergoing laboratory testing.

92. Last Word: The River, The New Mayor and Explaining Boll Weevils -

Hello, 2016. What’s your hurry?

First things first – the Mississippi River at our doorstep is above flood stage. But the crest is now predicted to come Friday and will be just over 40 feet – lower than predicted last week.
We will be posting web stories on the forecasts and other announcement from the county’s Office of Preparedness each evening to work with their schedule for summarizing where we are.
Floods are a slower moving cause for concern because we know what is happening upriver from us where the river is narrower. But this is also the Mississippi River, which is the definition of unpredictable.

93. Last Word: Out With the Old, In With The River -

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.

97. Last Word: Recovery in North Mississippi, Opera in 2016 and Uptown North of Chelsea -

It’s been a holiday season of challenged hopes and muted emotions in our corner of the world.
The beginning of the series of storms and tornadoes they spawned killed eight people in North Mississippi where recovery is still a fact of life in this last week of 2015.
This will be a week of funerals and damage assessments for federal disaster aid throughout our region.
And you will hear more stories of escapes and new beginnings after losing everything of any material value.
But even in our spared city, our thoughts will return instinctively to the young lives taken so suddenly and so close to the family gatherings in which our youngest give so much more in the way of hope than they will realize at this tender age.
