There is another convention center hotel proposal in circulation, Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland says.

14. Editorial: Traveling the Revenue Stream In the New Economy -

The new economy is here. And it is challenging the role of government in regulating businesses.

How much regulation is necessary to protect consumers is a question that predates Airbnb, Uber and Lyft. It’s a recurring issue at the intersection of business and government, and it should never be considered settled.

15. Platform for Property -

Airbnb is revolutionizing the hospitality industry causing legislators worldwide to scramble to regulate it, but the Memphis City Council is gaining state and national attention for its hands-off attitude.

21. Last Word: The Grizz Are Back, Bass Pro Shops Buys Cabela's and Stein at Amurica -

Some of you will remember the late George Lapides, whom I worked with for a time at WREC, had a policy about pre-season baseball games or what he called the “Grapefruit League.” It was that they didn’t exist. He wouldn’t acknowledge the games much less the scores.

22. Kane Discusses Bass Pro Changes, Mud Island, Convention Center -

Bass Pro Shops may be rethinking its mix of retail and attractions at the Pyramid, says the head of the Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Almost a year ago Trezevant High School was the state football champion in their division – the Frayser school’s first ever football championship. And for those with long memories of the city’s colorful history of high school athletics, there was some vindication in that.

24. Bursting the Bubble -

Graceland is in Memphis. But the two have tended to coexist, rather than being part of each other, since Elvis Presley’s home opened as a commercial enterprise in 1982.

That is starting to change as a $137 million expansion of Graceland – a $92 million hotel resort opening in October and a $45 million, 200,000-square-foot entertainment complex west of the mansion to open in the spring of 2017 – begins to overlap with a renewed emphasis on Whitehaven as the home of many of the city’s middle class.

25. Game-Changer -

So as it turns out, the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June was a missed opportunity. No one in the gallery shouted, “University of Memphis – Big 12!” The tournament’s “Hush Y’all” signs were obeyed and to no good end.

26. Memphis International Raceway Readies for World Series of Drag Racing -

No one is suggesting that Memphis International Raceway will duplicate the economic impact numbers generated by the Bristol Motor Speedway. For those numbers – more than $417 million in direct economic impact from 2012 to 2014 – are otherworldly.

27. Station to Station -

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

It won’t wipe out poverty. It can’t cure cancer. It won’t eliminate diabetes and obesity, solve all of the city’s transportation problems or totally bridge cultural and racial gaps that predate the bicycle’s invention.

Memphis City Council members approved an ordinance Tuesday, May 3, on the first of three readings to set boundaries in Overton Park including the use of the park Greensward.

38. Downtown Hotel Pipeline May Deter Larger Developer -

The proliferation of limited-size Downtown hotels could make the area less attractive for the 500-room, full-service hotel Downtown desperately needs.

That was board member Rob Norcross’ warning at the Feb. 11 meeting of the Land Use Control Board. And the Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau agrees that small hotels pose a risk.

39. Grizzlies Sign KD in Free Agency, Trade Mike Conley? No, Don’t Think So -

42. Last Word: The Force Reawakens, Methodist Expands and Setting Up 2016 -

Last Word is a new daily online column that offers an overview of what’s happened at the end of shift, so to speak. Picture a dimly lit newsroom in the Downtown night and the last person in the place leaving a memo for the morning shift and you have a pretty good idea of what we are aiming for.

It all began for Marilyn White over phone conversations with a close friend back home in Buffalo, N.Y.

45. Hotel Density Fuels Memphis Convention Center Ambitions -

The best indicator that the national recession was lifting in Memphis was the emergence this year of numerous plans for new hotels and motels.

But aside from Whitehaven’s 450-room, $90 million Guest House at Graceland, most of the planned projects are small. And the smaller hotels do little to resolve the long-standing chicken-and-egg question about which should come first – more hotel rooms or more and better convention space.

46. Thank You, Thank You Very Much -

A THANK YOU NOTE FROM A COPYWRITER TO ELVIS. Elvis was once asked what kind of music he played. “I play all kinds,” was his response.

That pretty much sums up Memphis, and Elvis was pretty much the sum up of its parts. Part gospel and part blues, part country and part soul. And all original. Part dirt poor and part flashy rich, part Mama’s boy and part nasty and naughty. And all surprising. Part glitz and glitter and part sad and tragic. And all too real. Part Mississippi and part Tennessee. And all world shaking.

47. Memphis Tourism Leaders Outline Convention Center Plans -

49. Wild Side -

No chance of being attacked by a hippo, which despite its size can outrun a man and is responsible for more human deaths in Africa than any other large animal.

No chance of being caught between the powerful jaws of a Nile crocodile and dragged underwater, drowned and devoured like a wildebeest in a National Geographic video.

57. Wharton: Tourism Is Serious Business -

Sometimes in tourism, it is the little things that count. But “little” is relative. Consider the digital LED display screen on the west wall of the Memphis Cook Convention Center – big enough to be seen by eastbound traffic on the Hernando DeSoto Bridge – which local leaders debuted this month after three years of planning.

58. Wharton Administration Willing to Explore Coliseum Renovation -

The first renderings of a recast Mid-South Fairgrounds offered years ago are just one misstep early on that continues to plague the project still in search of specific private partners.

The conceptual drawings were heavy on baseball diamonds when the idea of two mayoral administrations at City Hall was and remains more soccer fields, basketball courts and a multi-purpose sports facility along with baseball diamonds.

60. Room for Growth -

Sardor and Gulam Umarov are used to fighting battles with seemingly long odds.

Between 2005 and 2009, the brothers waged a high-profile human rights campaign against the authoritarian government in their native Uzbekistan for the release of their father, Sanjar Umarov, a Germantown businessman thrown into prison for opposing the regime.

61. Competition Calls -

Economic development and the quality of jobs coming to Shelby County are the dominant issues as county elected leaders begin a new four-year term of office this month.

62. Graceland Hotel Designed by Memphis Talent -

When designing a hotel that effectively expands the footprint of the most famous home in Memphis, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the design team for the project is stacked with local talent.

Dr. David Stern, executive dean of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine, has launched a unique effort to address community health needs in Memphis.

“It’s my belief that a medical school has a very unique opportunity to interact with the community,” Stern said. “I consider our community to be a very important laboratory – it is an underserved, minority community that is in ill health. The biggest contribution we can make is to move the needle on overall community health and to develop new methods that we can apply to other communities like Memphis.”

67. Beale Club Reopening About Timing -

98. Bass Pro and Beyond -
