1. Summer in the City
- Saturday, July 15, 2017
Saturday night on Beale Street is more than a catch phrase for businesses there.
It is chapters in old, out-of-print books like Lt. George W. Lee’s “Where The Blues Began” that you can only see in the Memphis-Shelby County Room of the Central Library. You can’t check the book out because of its rarity and age. But you can also find references to the lore of Saturday nights on Beale Street on plaques in the entertainment district that current patrons walk past without even noticing.
2. Last Word: Rumors, The Return of Tyreke Evans and Broadband in Millington
- Monday, July 10, 2017
There is a popular saying attributed to Winston Churchill that goes like this: “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” Even before social media, that was certainly the case in this part of the world called Memphis. The part of our history that doesn’t fit in books is littered with rumors that turned the city upside down in a much shorter period of time than it took to repair the damage done. That is what happened this weekend with Memphis Light Gas and Water.
3. How Did Vols Not Win More With This Talent?
- Friday, May 5, 2017
One check of the 2017 NFL Draft shows why Tennessee was the favorite to win the SEC East Division last fall.
UT had six players drafted in the first four rounds, the most for the program since 2002, breaking a two-year drought with no players. The six Vols drafted tied for the most since 2010 and 2007. Eight Vols were drafted in 2003 and 10 drafted in 2002.
4. Hits and Misses in UT’s Quest for JuCo Gold
- Friday, April 28, 2017

9. Sales Volume Raises Risk of Closing Snafus

The Greater Nashville Association of Realtors’ May sales data show sales continuing to rise.

- Saturday, May 30, 2015

11. Nashville's Next Mayor Must Solve Traffic, Education Woes
- Saturday, May 16, 2015

- Wednesday, May 28, 2014
