1. Clark Butcher is Pedaling to Glory
- Friday, March 18, 2016
It’s 6 a.m. on a rainy Wednesday morning. Outside, the sun has not yet risen. But inside Victory Bicycle Studio, they’re already playing Rihanna. “We’re gonna start with some two-minute openers,” shouts Clark Butcher, over the thump of the music. “I want you at 70 percent of your max. Let’s go!”
2. Last Word: The First Surrogate, Parkside at Shelby Farms and Manilow Memories
- Thursday, February 11, 2016
Here they come, fresh from Iowa and New Hampshire – first the surrogates and in the next two weeks the Presidential contenders themselves.
The nation’s “first surrogate” – former President Bill Clinton is at Whitehaven High School Thursday evening to rally early voters in the heart of a large reliably Democratic middle class community.
And it is that voter base that was integral to Barack Obama carrying Shelby County in the 2008 Democratic Presidential primary even as Hillary Clinton carried the state that year.
As mentioned here Tuesday, the local Bernie Sanders campaign opens its Memphis HQ over the weekend.
Hillary Clinton headquarters in Memphis and Nashville are on the way soon with the Nashville HQ opening Thursday as the former President is in Whitehaven and the candidate is preparing for another television debate Thursday in Milwaukee with Sanders.
And early voting opened Downtown Wednesday.
The first day's turnout Wednesday was 177 early and absentee voters. Combined with another 645 absentee votes cast before the early voting period, that makes 822 early or absentee votes.
Another Republican contender on the ballot in Tennessee is out of the race. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie dropped out the day after his dismal finish in New Hampshire. He did not have a slate of delegates on the ballot here.

- Saturday, May 02, 2015

7. Nashville Sounds Owner, Players Marvel at New Park
- Saturday, April 25, 2015
Ten days before the Nashville Sounds’ scheduled home opener at their palatial new digs, First Tennessee Park in Germantown was still very much a work in progress.

12. Building It for the Long Haul
- Monday, April 28, 2014
Minus the cornfield backdrop, the owners of big-box gyms know that if they build it, the line from “Field of Dreams” will hold up and people will come. They most definitely will come.
Unfortunately, the average gym-goer is something of a dream-chaser, too, imagining she will be losing weight like it is merely an extra layer of unwanted clothing or believing he will undergo a Herculean-style transformation in 30 days.
