1. Trump’s Turn -

If the election of Donald Trump was a mystery, there are even more questions about what will he do once he takes office Jan. 20. The clues may or may not be in the conduct of his campaign.

“Donald Trump campaigned without being tied to the traditional parameters of conservative-liberal dialogue that we’ve come to know over the past 20 or 30 years,” said Memphis attorney John Ryder, who is legal counsel to the Republican National Committee. “The hopeful part about that is that allows him to move past those divisions and enter new territory.”

A slim border, perhaps of a swimming pool, appears intermittently. The nine tennis courts are now a duck pond near the 20-acre lake that remains the centerpiece of the property.

By the time that expansion is finished in 2018, the space will have tripled in size and will be better able to keep pace, officials say, with the growth in specialty care at Le Bonheur that’s helped draw more patients – and families who need a place to stay.

6. Disney Embraces Streaming as Ratings Sag -

NEW YORK (AP) – As more and more people get their favorite TV shows and movies online, Disney is also learning to embrace the stream.
