Willis – that were the key to his and King’s efforts to get things done in Memphis and the surrounding region.

I am not going to be one of those people who at this late date in the history of television dramas based on real people points out every departure from reality.

While we wait – and wait and wait and wait – for the University of Tennessee to hire its next athletics director, let’s ponder the man who soon will walk out the door.

40. Growing Pains -

41. Dobbs’ Change of Heart a Great Gift to Vol Fans -

In the spirit of the holiday season, Joshua Dobbs is the gift that keeps on giving. Despite all the disappointments of 2016 for Tennessee football, it would be a mistake not to appreciate Dobbs for what he is: a scholar, an athlete, a leader, a role model and a winner.

Five games into their season, the Memphis Grizzlies have provided a small sample size that is simultaneously encouraging, confounding and still mildly concerning.

58. Grizzlies and Civil Rights Museum Create ‘A Bridge of Opportunity’ -

That we feel compelled to express the meaning of the day through actions and a recommitment to principles buffeted by reality reflects a hope that we wish to retain as first-hand memories of King’s life fade and his legacy endures.
