1. Council OKs Strickland's Directors, He Defends Pay Raises -

Memphis City Council members approved Mayor Jim Strickland’s slate of 12 division chiefs and directors Tuesday, Jan. 5, at the first council meeting of 2016.

2. University of Memphis Notebook: Ballers Can’t Shoot, Norvell Completes Staff -

Among coach Josh Pastner’s favorite refrains: “You gotta make shots.”

The University of Memphis made few shots in its 86-76 loss at No. 24 South Carolina on Saturday, Jan. 2, going 19 of 61 from the floor for an atrocious 31.1 percent. So awful was the Tigers’ shooting from the floor that it rendered the 30 of 36 performance (83.3 percent) from the free-throw line a footnote.

3. TVA Employees Sharing in Record Earnings -

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Valley Authority is rewarding employees for helping boost the utility's income above $1 billion last year.

TVA directors voted Friday to allow the agency's 10,900 employees to share in some of those record earnings, the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/1HewbVr) reported. The directors approved payments of $113 million, or an average year-end bonus of $10,367 per employee.

4. Hoops & Dreams -

They were but a few words, yet they seemed to capture the mindset of the University of Memphis basketball program’s high-expectation fan base.

“Get back to like it was,” said former Tigers guard Jeremy Hunt.

5. Better Titans Doing Nothing for Whisenhunt’s Record -

The whispers are already out there. How much job security does Ken Whisenhunt really have with the Tennessee Titans?

It seems a little soon for message boards and talk radio to be discussing the ouster of the Titans coach, but such is life in the coaching fish bowl when you lose games that should go into the win column, like the Titans have done in their past two games.

6. Five City Council Races Destined for Runoffs -

The identity of the Memphis City Council that will take office in January with six new members was still in flux at the end of a very long and frustrating Oct. 8 election night.

The races for four of those six open seats and the seat now held by an appointee to the council are going to a Nov. 19 runoff election – one week before Thanksgiving.

7. Pastner, Always True to Self, Is Still Doing Things His Way -

Expectations. That’s the word that drives all sports narratives. Remember the record of Josh Pastner’s first University of Memphis team, the ragtag bunch that was left over after John Calipari exited for Kentucky?

8. Bona Fide -

When the Bona Fide Blues Festival takes a set of stages in Overton Square and the Cooper-Young neighborhood next month, it will mark a return that’s been a long time coming.

But it also will offer something new.

11. Tigers Alumni Game a Chance for Fans to Relive Fond Memories -

It’s not the Final Four. In fact, it’s not even a November nonconference game against some directional school.

It’s an alumni game being played at the little campus gym at the University of Memphis. And it’s sold out.

12. Former Memphis Tigers Plan Alumni Basketball Game -

Look back to look ahead. That’s what former University of Memphis basketball players Jeremy Hunt and Willie Kemp are trying to do with the first alumni game, scheduled for Saturday, June 27, at 6 p.m. at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse, 495 Zach Curlin St.

13. Mike Shildt: From College Walk-On To Memphis Redbirds Manager -

Any professional baseball player can tell you about the stigmas he has to fight. For one guy, it might be that he doesn’t hit with enough power. And for another it might be that he doesn’t make consistent enough contact.

14. Carson Departs, Problems Remain For Local Democrats -

With about a month left in his term as chairman of the Shelby County Democratic Party, Bryan Carson resigned Saturday, Feb. 21, after a confrontation behind closed doors with the party’s executive committee over his handling of the party’s bank accounts.

15. Nashville’s Most Romantic Restaurants -

Romance means something different for everyone, but most people can agree that if there is low lighting, soft music, a charming companion and something delicious to eat, you’ve already got the makings of one outstanding evening.

16. Vols Take Plenty of Momentum Into Offseason -

KNOXVILLE – There’s nothing like going into the offseason on a high note. The Vols will be riding the momentum from the resounding 45-28 victory against Iowa in the Jan. 2 TaxSlayer Bowl through the end of recruiting season, winter workouts, spring practices and into the summer months.

17. For Tigers, Any Win is Good -

The Tigers’ problems are solved. Or at least they are when they make 11 threes, shoot 52.4 percent from long range, and almost 80 percent at the free-throw line.

So let’s reframe things: For a night, this was how the University of Memphis got around their worst habit – giving the ball to the other team.

18. More Questions Than Answers -

In the aftermath of the Memphis Tigers’ season-opening loss to Wichita State, new information has come to light:

For starters, junior point guard Kedren Johnson, who transferred from Vanderbilt to run the Memphis offense, has told coach Josh Pastner he’ll be in basketball shape by the Bradley game (that’s Dec. 6) or a little bit later.

19. After the Campaign -

The 2014 election year began in January with dissent from the floor.

At the end of the Shelby County Democratic Party’s annual Kennedy Day fundraiser in January, former Memphis City Council member and state Rep. Carol Chumney, who was not among the speakers, challenged the party establishment from her table to do more to support women running for office.

20. New Look -

A new season brings optimism – or marketing, if you want to be cynical about it – but also some reflective truth-telling.

Go back to this time last year for the University of Memphis basketball team. They were going to be really good, or maybe even great, because of the four senior guards. Those guards – Joe Jackson, Chris Crawford, Geron Johnson and Michael Dixon – were going to be leaders, defensive dynamos and 3-point sharpshooters.

21. Carr Mulling Bid for Chairman of Tennessee GOP -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Former state Rep. Joe Carr, who in August won 41 percent of the vote in his primary challenge of U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, says he is mulling a bid for chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party.

23. Alexander vs. Ball -

Lamar Alexander and Gordon Ball were on the same campaign trail but different races at about this time 36 years ago.

24. HipD: Donelson Finds Its Cool Side -

25. Nine Losing Candidates Challenge August Vote -

Nine losing candidates from the August elections are contesting the results in a Shelby County Chancery Court lawsuit.

28. Democratic Divide Widens in Election Results -

Democrats have retained their seven-vote majority on the new single-district Shelby County Commission that takes office Sept. 1.

That and the re-election victory of Democratic incumbent Cheyenne Johnson in the race for Shelby County Assessor of Property were the only bright spots for a divided local Democratic Party that lost every other countywide partisan elected position to Republicans in the Aug. 7 county general election, just as they lost every countywide position to Republicans four years earlier.

29. Cohen Prevails, Incumbents Dominate -

32. Cosmic Caffeine: Astronauts Getting Espresso Maker -

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – Talk about a cosmic caffeine jolt. The International Space Station is getting a real Italian espresso machine.

Astronauts of all nationalities – but especially the Italians – have long grumbled about the tepid instant coffee served in pouches and drunk with straws 260 miles above Earth. The pouches and straws aren't going away, but at least the brew will pack some zero-gravity punch.

33. Grizzlies Draft UCLA's Adams, Memphis Native Stokes -

Whether it will prove to be a telling remembrance or not, news of the Grizzlies selecting guard UCLA shooting guard Jordan Adams with the No. 22 overall pick in Thursday night’s NBA Draft was largely met with mild disdain, sweeping indifference and a dash of tilt-your-head curiosity.

34. County Primaries Reflect Different Political Fortunes -

Memphis City Council member Lee Harris is challenging Democratic state Sen. Ophelia Ford in the August primary for District 29, the Senate seat held by a member of the Ford family since 1975.

38. Tigers Season Sits Somewhere Between Respectable, Not-Quite-Great -

So, how best to categorize the 2013-2014 season for the Memphis Tigers basketball team?

Great? Not even coach Josh Pastner has settled on that word.

Respectable? It was much more than that. You may be tired of hearing Pastner say it, but it is true the Tigers stayed in the national rankings until the final Associated Press poll right before the NCAA Tournament.

39. Tigers Season Ends On Common Theme -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

40. Tigers Season Ends on Common Theme: ‘Underachieved’ -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

41. Tigers Don't Feel Like 'Cinderella' vs. 1 Seed Virginia -

RALEIGH, N.C. – The pressure valve that at times seems to control life for the Memphis Tigers had opened in the form of a 71-66 victory over George Washington in the NCAA Tournament’s round of 64.

42. Tigers Hang to Beat GW in NCAAs -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Michael Dixon Jr. once thought his college basketball career was done.

You know the story. From Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year at Missouri to being exiled after sexual assault allegations that never became more than that, never turned into actual charges.

43. Tigers Look to Ace Next Tourney Test -

Memphis made the Final Four. Seriously, you can stop worrying about the first game this Friday against George Washington University.

The Tigers joined American, Michigan and national champion Dayton in the annual Academic Performance Tournament’s Final Four, as played out by Inside Higher Ed. In this tournament, the winners are based on the Academic Progress Rate, the NCAA’s multiyear measure of a team’s classroom performance.

44. Timid Play Knocks Tigers Out of Tourney -

Memphis coach Josh Pastner admitted the loss was “embarrassing.”

Senior guard Geron Johnson said, “I’m disgusted with myself,” and vowed not to watch the rest of the American Athletic Conference Tournament at FedExForum that continues with the semifinals Friday, March 14, without the Tigers.

45. Time for Winning -

Through a 31-game regular season and an 18-game grind in the American Athletic Conference, the University of Memphis never lost back-to-back games. It’s a notable achievement.

But now that the single-elimination season has started, it also is an irrelevant statistic going forward unless the Tigers have the misfortune to lose their first AAC Tournament game Thursday, March 13, at FedExForum against Connecticut, and then lose their first NCAA Tournament game a week later.

46. Tigers Seniors Hope to Script Memorable Last Chapter -

The five Memphis seniors talked about their college basketball careers and they sounded older, wiser. And although nobody used this word, maybe a little scared about what might, or might not, come next.

One of the six Shelby County Commission incumbents seeking re-election this year was effectively elected to a new four-year term in a new district with the noon Thursday, Feb. 20, filing deadline for candidates in the May county primaries.

48. Memphis Finally Finding Touch From Deep -

When the Memphis Tigers missed 15 of 17 threes against Southeast Missouri State, the players and coach Josh Pastner said not to worry. And they had a 77-65 victory in that game to back them up.

But two weeks later, they again went 2-for-17 from long range at FedExForum against Cincinnati (11.8 percent, for the record) and wound up on the wrong end of a 69-53 score.

49. Saint Blues Celebrates 30th Birthday with Events, New Guitars -

Memphis-based guitar maker Saint Blues Guitar Workshop is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2014 and is marking the occasion in part with the introduction of several new guitar models.

50. Tigers' Life in ‘Real’ Conference Off to Tough Start -

51. Music Maker -

Memphis-based guitar maker Saint Blues Guitar Workshop is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2014 and is marking the occasion in part with the introduction of several new guitar models.

52. No Need to Spin Tigers’ Nice Start -

Every special season has critical mileposts along the way. The Tigers’ first came in Stillwater, Okla., where, again, they weren’t up to the challenge of a ranked opponent in Oklahoma State. Thus, the Tigers and their coach returned to harsh criticism in Memphis and waited for the next opportunity.

53. Grindhouse Now House of Horrors for Grizzlies -

The Grizzlies just started a six-game homestand with a loss – their fourth in a row at FedExForum.

Seems The Grindhouse has turned into a fun house for visiting teams this season as they have gone 5-3 against the Grizzlies.

54. Time for Tigers to Back Up Words -

Looking back at a few quotes from the once 11th-ranked Tigers at their preseason media day, in light of the embarrassment that was their recent 101-80 loss to No. 7 Oklahoma State:

Senior guard Geron Johnson: “One (free-throw) attempt a game last year, I mean that’s terrible if I’m supposed to be some tough guy.” He shot one free throw – and missed it – in 24 minutes in Stillwater.

55. Guards, Balance Key Tigers’ Tuneup -

An Austin Nichols dunk off a turnover and a Shaq Goodwin assist; a Joe Jackson driving layup; a Geron Johnson “wow” backwards dunk on a fastbreak off a Jackson steal and assist; and a Michael Dixon jumper off another Jackson steal and assist.

A year ago in this exhibition matchup, the University of Memphis trailed at the half and beat Christian Brothers University by 11 points.

But Friday night, Nov. 8, at FedExForum, the Tigers defeated CBU 92-63 and nobody had to play more than 22 minutes as Memphis coach Josh Pastner mixed and matched his lineups throughout the game.

59. Beauty in the Difficulty for Tigers This Season -

Conference USA’s Powers That Be, which is funny just to type, were not happy when the University of Memphis left for what eventually was named the American Athletic Conference.

The best indication of this?

60. Nichols Ready to Back Up Hype -

Every player has his favorite spot on the floor, that go-to place where everything seems to slow down, where the player most feels like himself even amid the chaos.

But maybe more important when you are a much-hyped, homegrown University of Memphis freshman is to have that special place off the floor. A retreat, where in this case young Austin Nichols can make the world spin a little more slowly and turn down the volume on all the outside noise.

61. Expectations, Talent Sky-High for Tigers -

Four senior guards. Nine new faces, seven of them belonging to freshmen. A new league, the American Athletic Conference. And a home schedule that will feature games against league foes Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville and Temple, and non-conference opponent Gonzaga.

62. Tigers Prep for New League, Lofty Expectations -

As good as last season’s University of Memphis basketball team was – and it won 31 games and got through to a second game in the NCAA Tournament – there is a sense this season’s team can be better.

63. Tigers Prep for New League, Lofty Expectations -

Technically, they are next season’s Tigers basketball team. Truthfully, University of Memphis basketball is never out of season.

This being the summer, talk from practice sessions at the Finch Center is mostly for the good. People are excited that coach Josh Pastner finally appears willing to really use the press. People are encouraged by the early positive reports on freshman big man Austin Nichols (Briarcrest). Tiger Nation is, well, so glad. Not to mention excited for the school to begin play in the new American Athletic Conference after finally exiting downtrodden Conference USA.

68. Newest Tiger Dixon Answers Reporters’ Questions -

Less than a year ago, guard Michael Dixon was a preseason second-team All-American selection by The Sporting News after a junior season at Missouri in which he averaged 13.5 points and 3.3 assists. Off the bench.

69. Likeability Loses Shine if Tigers Can’t Deliver -

Tigers coach Josh Pastner likes to talk about how there are three parts to the college basketball season. The University of Memphis aced their final run through the Conference USA regular season (going 16-0 in Part 1).

70. Time for Tigers to Make Case for Higher Seed -

On Saturday, March 9, the Tigers finish out the regular season at FedExForum against UAB. We know if they win this game, they will have a perfect 16-0 record in the last season in Conference USA. We also know it will be the last time Tigers fans get to see senior D.J. Stephens play – dunk – in a home Tigers game.

71. Comments, Victories Becoming Broken Record -

So Josh Pastner’s latest post-game conference is just about to start, this one after a 93-71 victory over Central Florida on Wednesday, Feb. 13, a game the Tigers led by as many as 34 points.

72. Tigers Must Stay on Right Path to Reach Potential -

Depending on your perspective, it was lavish praise that spoke to the Tigers’ potential still there for the realizing and great NCAA Tournament victories still there for the taking.

Or, depending on your perspective, it was an unintentional indictment of a college basketball team that so far has majored in underachievement and of a basketball equation where the sum is always less than its individual parts.

77. A Season for More -

88. Tigers Ace First Test, Take Talents to Maui -

Every season has a first game. But this was not a perfunctory tip to an ordinary season. This one felt different, felt like the first act of a play that could have the ultimate, dramatic, ending.

Months from now, no one will remember all the particulars from the University of Memphis’ 97-81 victory over Belmont on Tuesday, Nov. 15. People will forget that Will Barton, Wesley Witherspoon and Joe Jackson all went for at least 20 points, that the game started at 11 a.m. on a Tuesday (to accommodate ESPN) and that outside FedExForum it was a gray, rainy day.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Imagine a nation without the Postal Service.

94. Obama Picks Fight on Taxes, Big or Just Symbolic -

95. Sears has Long Fix-It List After Posting Loss -

New Sears CEO Lou D'Ambrosio has a lot of work to do.

But with appliance sales weakening, a small resurgence at Kmart faltering and Sears stores continually lagging, where to start?

96. Consumers Feel the Pinch of Pricier Gas and Food -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Americans are paying more for food and gas, a trend that threatens to slow the economy at a crucial time.

When the restaurant Wally Joe closed in January 2007, owner Fred Carl Jr., founder, president and CEO of Viking Range Corp., decided to keep a restaurant going while looking for a buyer for the space in the shopping center at South Mendenhall Road and Sanderlin Avenue. Appropriately, the temporary restaurant would be called Interim.

99. First South CEO Esrael Assumes BACC Chairmanship -

Craig Esrael has been the president and CEO of First South Financial Credit Union for 28 years.

When he arrived there in 1983, fresh out of graduate school, he was faced with a financially distressed corporation with six quarters of losses and $32 million in assets.
