The owner of the most expensive piece of real estate in Shelby County isn’t finished challenging its 2009 appraisal.

Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group, the owner of Wolfchase Galleria, is filing another appeal of the mall’s price tag, which the Shelby County Board of Equalization in March pegged at $150 million.

6. The Biggest Spenders -

David Simon, chairman and CEO of the nation’s largest public real estate firm, told analysts a few weeks ago during Simon Property Group’s fourth quarter earnings conference call that 2009 was a challenging year. And he doesn’t think 2010 will be much better for the company, which owns two malls in Memphis.

7. Shelby County’s Malls Fight Tax Appraisals -

In a sign of the rattled state of commercial property owners amid the lingering downturn, the owners of most of Shelby County’s major shopping malls are contesting their 2009 property appraisals.

The new values, which will determine the properties’ tax bills, were sent out earlier this year as part of the 2009 countywide reappraisal of property. The area’s five most prominent shopping centers – Wolfchase Galleria, The Avenue Carriage Crossing, Oak Court, Raleigh Springs Mall and Southland Mall – all saw their appraisals rise this year.

8. County Leaves Wiggle Room In Tax Rate -

In setting the Shelby County property tax rate for the coming fiscal year, county officials have planned for the loss of as much as $1.06 billion in tax value from successful challenges to property value this year.

9. Johnson Has No Small Task as County Assessor -

When she speaks, Shelby County Assessor of Property Cheyenne Johnson’s voice is usually low-key and unassuming. It’s a quality that belies her message, which, starting today, will begin to resonate with jittery homeowners and be heard loud and clear across the county.

10. Assessor Prepares For Reappraisal — And Appeals -

As Shelby County assessor of property, Cheyenne Johnson’s job is the equivalent of hitting the bull’s eye on a moving target more than 350,000 times.

Johnson, who was elected Aug. 7 to succeed three-term assessor Rita Clark, is overseeing final preparations for next year’s countywide reappraisal, during which the property values for more than 350,000 parcels of land in Shelby County will be re-evaluated. The reappraisal occurs every four years to reflect changes in the local real estate market.

11. Jackson’s Election Signals Change In Clerk’s Office -

Shelby County General Sessions Court Clerk Otis Jackson Jr. turned 48 this week and walked into the clerk’s office for the first time as the clerk.

Jackson, a Democrat, upset incumbent clerk Chris Turner, a Republican, in the Aug. 7 county general elections. From then to Sept. 1, when Jackson officially took office, there wasn’t a transition.

12. Johnson, Jackson To Be Sworn in Sunday -

Two newly minted elected officials will be formally sworn into office Sunday.

13. Trustee, Assessor Look Ahead To New Positions -

The day after last week’s Shelby County general election, Paul Mattila walked into a room in the Shelby County Administration Building where employees of the Shelby County Trustee’s office had gathered in his honor.

14. Cohen, Blackburn Lead Local Election Winners -

More than half and possibly as much as 75 percent of Shelby County’s nearly 626,000 voters are expected to turn out for the Nov. 4 election that will be highlighted by the John McCain-Barack Obama battle for the White House.

15. Cohen Crushes Tinker - Jackson Upsets Turner - Charter Changes Pass-Fail - Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen was the big winner in Thursday’s primary elections. Cohen, with 80 percent of the vote, crushed challenger Nikki Tinker in the hard fought 9th District Democratic primary.

The upset of the evening was the general election contest for General Sessions Court Clerk where Democratic challenger Otis Jackson beat Republican incumbent Chris Turner.

And only one of two sets of Shelby County charter amendments on the ballot were approved by voters.

Voter turnout was just under 16 percent in Shelby County. Voter turnout was clearly driven by the 9th District Democratic primary. More people voted in that primary which covers most but not all of Shelby County than voted countywide in the state Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate. Turnout in the Democratic primaries was twice that of the Republican primaries in Shelby County.

All results are unofficial pending audit and certification by the Shelby County Election Commission and Tennessee election officials

9th Congressional District
Democratic Primary
Steve Cohen 50,284 79%
Nikki Tinker 11,814 19%
Joe Towns Jr. 914 1%

Not even close. Cohen won the primary for the open all Shelby County seat two years ago by 4,400 votes over Tinker and 13 other candidates. This time around he was the incumbent and Tinker’s challenge was more strident with a pair of controversial attack ads in the gap between the end of early voting and election day. Both were probably factors in the vote totals along with a smaller field of five candidates.

Cohen faces independent candidate Jake Ford in the Nov. 4 general election.

7th Congressional District
Republican Primary
248 of 265 precincts reporting
Marsha Blackburn 29,158 65%
Tom Leatherwood 15,636 35%

These are the results district wide which includes not only the eastern part of Shelby County but a strip of Middle Tennessee up to the Kentucky state line. In Shelby County’s part of the 7th district, Leatherwood beat Blackburn with 62 percent of the vote. But it was 62 percent of just over 19,000 votes. Outside Shelby County it was always going to be difficult for Leatherwood.. The low voter turnout in Collierville and other eastern parts of the county made Leatherwood’s task impossible.

Blackburn faces Democrat Randy G. Morris on the Nov. 4 ballot.

Shelby County Charter Amendment #360
Yes  49,506   49.73%

No   50,043   50,27%

Closest contest of the night in Shelby County with a 537 vote margin and the highest turnout with 99,549 votes total.

This set of charter changes was to fix a legal problem noted in a recent Tennessee Supreme Court ruling. Another part of the package deal was increasing term limits for the county mayor and the county commission from two consecutive four year terms approved by voters in 1994 to three consecutive four year terms. The County Commission meets Monday to ponder whether it should offer another charter amendment on the Nov. 4 ballot that would fix the legal problem.

Shelby County Charter Amendment #361
Yes 65,548 68%
No 30,188 32%

This set of charter amendment includes provisions for recalling elected officials. It also establishes a new method for filling a vacancy in the office of County Mayor.

General Sessions Court Clerk
Otis Jackson 51,438 52%
Chris Turner 43,971 45%

The upset of the evening. Turner, the Republican nominee and the incumbent was seeking a fourth term. Jackson, the Democratic nominee, was making his fourth bid for county-wide office after coming close in a 2006 bid for County Clerk.

Paul Mattila 54,734 57%
Ray Butler 29,977 31%

Mattila beats Butler in a race featuring an energetic and misleading campaign by M. LaTroy Williams in which Williams billed himself as the “real Democrat.” He was, in fact, an independent candidate garnering 8 percent of the vote. Mattila fills the remaining two years left in the term of office of the late Bob Patterson, a Republican. Mattila, a Democrat, worked with Patterson. Butler, the Republican, was also a friend of Patterson’s and the race amounted to who would best continue to operate the office as Patterson did.

Criminal Court Judge Div. 6
John Fowlkes 44,581 52%
Latonya Burrow 21,874 26%
Michael G. Floyd 12,071 14%
Claiborne H. Ferguson 6,240 7%

Fowlkes serves out the remaining six years left of the eight year term of office of Fred Axley who resigned from the bench shortly after winning re-election in 2006. Burrow finished a close second to Axley two years ago and again ran an energetic campaign this time around. But Fowlkes status in the legal community and his appointment to the bench by Gov. Phil Bredesen proved to be the advantage.

Assessor of Property
Cheyenne Johnson 59,637 60%
Bill Giannini 39,057 40%

Johnson, the Democratic nominee, easily beat Giannini, who is also doubling as local GOP chairman. Local Democrats keep the county-wide position in their column as voters go for the candidate endorsed by outgoing Democratic incumbent Rita Clark.

U.S. Senate
Democratic Primary
2,192 of 2,290 precincts reporting
Bob Tuke 54,613 32%
Gary G. Davis 37,193 22%
Mike Padgett 32,190 19%
Mark Clayton 30,359 18%
Kenneth Eaton 13,718 8%
Leonard Ladner 4,431 3%

These are the statewide results. Tuke got 42 percent of the Shelby County vote with Clayton finishing second. Tuke, the former state Democratic Party chairman, faces Republican incumbent Lamar Alexander, one of the most successful politicians in the history of the state, in the Nov. 4 general election.

Judicial Retention Races

All seven state appellate court judges, including two Tennessee Supreme Court justices, won their yes/no contests on the ballot across the state. That includes Tennessee Criminal Appeals Court Judge Camille McMullen of Millington who was just appointed to the bench in June by Gov. Phil Bredesen.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.


16. Uncertainty Lingers for County Budget -

The size of Shelby County government’s budget shortfall has been revised three times since the beginning of this year. Each time, the number has grown.

The county’s deficit first stood at $10 million. The long-awaited budget plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1, which county Mayor A C Wharton Jr. presented last week to the Shelby County Board of Commissioners, is built around a $29 million shortfall.

17. Suburbs Power Tax Growth While City Idles -

The modest overall growth in Shelby County's tax base eked out over the past year was due by and large to strong real estate markets in the suburbs of Arlington, Collierville and Lakeland.

Certified property assessment figures released last week show that, over the past year, at least 300 new residential parcels of land came onto the tax rolls in all three cities. In each case, that residential growth brought between $20 million and $30 million in new taxable value.

18. Tax Hikes A Familiar Refrain In Herenton's World -

Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton has proposed five tax hikes since taking office in 1992, including the 58-cent property tax hike he proposed this week to the City Council.

Once Herenton got 5 cents more on the tax rate than he requested. The other three budget seasons, including his first two as mayor, ended with the council going lower than Herenton wanted.

19. Commission Gets Testy Over Budget Cuts -

A $100,000 summer jobs program set the stage this week for what are expected to be some hard budget decisions Shelby County Board of Commissioners will make between now and July.

The program was cut after Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton Jr. told the commission that his operating budget proposal will have at least a $23.5 million gap between revenues and expenditures.

20. Wharton Budget Proposal Expected to be $23.5M in the Red -

Shelby County Mayor AC Wharton Jr. told County Commissioners Monday that his upcoming budget proposal will have nearly $23.5 million in red ink.

Wharton’s budget message today was required by the county charter. But Wharton did not present a detailed budget plan. Property Assessor Rita Clark is still preparing critical property tax calculations that will determine how much revenue county government can expect in the fiscal year that begins in July. Those projections including how much revenue a penny in the property tax rate produces are expected in about two weeks.

21. Filing Deadline For Elections Is Thursday -

A healthy voter turnout doesn't necessarily mean every race on the ballot gets the benefit. Politicos call it "ballot falloff." It means races such as those for president or mayor get voters to the polls. But those same voters might decide not to vote in the other races.

22. Wharton Budget Proposal Expected to be $23.5M in the Red -

Shelby County Mayor AC Wharton Jr. told County Commissioners today that his upcoming budget proposal will have nearly $23.5 million in red ink.

Wharton’s budget message today was required by the county charter. But Wharton did not present a detailed budget plan. Property Assessor Rita Clark is still preparing critical property tax calculations that will determine how much revenue county government can expect in the fiscal year that begins in July. Those projections including how much revenue a penny in the property tax rate produces are expected in about two weeks.

23. Commissioners, Get Ready -

After months of speculation, projections and number-crunching, the local government budget season begins today. And a somber one it promises to be. Painful could be added too, but not surprising.

Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton Jr. will present his budget proposal today to the Shelby County Board of Commissioners after another winter spent campaigning in the corridors of the state Capitol in Nashville for some alternative source of revenue other than the county property tax.

24. MAAR Event Tailored to Commercial Property Reappraisals -

Andy Raines graduated from law school at then-Memphis State University in 1980, the same year Shelby County held its first property reappraisal in nearly two decades.

As a young attorney cutting his teeth on property tax law for Evans and Petree PC, Raines saw firsthand the chaos created by what later would be considered a watershed event.

25. Economists, Officials Come to GripsWith Stark Realities -

It was fitting that a panel discussion at the University of Memphis about Shelby County's eroding tax base was held in a conference center building on a street called Innovation Drive.

Because as economists, real estate officials and officeholders in local government continue coming to grips with the bleak financial picture facing the county, a consensus is emerging that bold new ideas will have to be put on the table.

26. Wharton, Others to Discuss Finances Today -

Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton Jr. has invited some of the top financial minds both in and out of county government to a roundtable discussion that will be held this morning at the University of Memphis.

27. Desperate Officials Hope County Roundtable Will Help -

Shelby County government is almost out of options. That's the message of grim-faced county officials who are in penny-pinching mode and who say they've trimmed the county's operating budget as much as they can.

28. Fasten Your Seatbelts -

As the housing market continues its roller coaster ride, Shelby County officials have begun to fret openly amongst each other about something that was little more than a private concern before now.

29. Obama, Huckabee Dominate Shelby in Tenn. Primaries -

The presidential primary season came to a rain-soaked and stormy end Tuesday evening in Memphis even as some voters were still showing up at the polls.

Democratic Sen. Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee carried Shelby County in Tuesday's Tennessee presidential primaries in which 24 percent of Shelby County's 611,000 registered voters cast ballots.

30. Obama, Huckabee Carry Shelby In Tn Primary -

Huckabee went on to win statewide in the GOP contest while New York Sen. Hillary Clinton took the statewide Democratic primary.

31. Early Votes Set Stage for 'Super Tuesday' -

Through the first five days of early voting, 1,152 Shelby County voters have cast ballots in advance of the Feb. 5 "Super Tuesday" election. Early voting opened Jan. 16 at Shelby County Election Commission headquarters, 157 Poplar Ave. The balloting expands to 18 satellite locations starting today.

32. Assessor's Office BeginsProperty Schedule Mailings -      Shelby County Assessor of Property Rita Clark began mailing 41,819 personal property schedules to businesses in Shelby County last week.

33. Primary Voting Begins Today -

Early voting in the Feb. 5 Tennessee presidential primaries and the primaries for Shelby County property assessor and General Sessions Court clerk opens today.

Shelby County voters begin making their choices in the presidential races as the contenders are focused on the coming South Carolina primaries.

34. Two Primary Contests Set, Two to Go -

Two of the four Shelby County primaries on the Feb. 5 ballot were decided at last week's filing deadline for candidates in the races for Property Assessor and General Sessions Court Clerk.

The fields in the two other primaries aren't set just yet. The candidates have until noon Thursday to withdraw if they wish. Then the Shelby County Election Commission will meet to certify the ballot. The county primaries will share the Feb. 5 ballot with the Tennessee Democratic and Republican presidential primaries.

35. Assessor, Court Clerk Candidates Unchallenged in Primaries -

Two of the four Shelby County primary elections on the Feb. 5 ballot will be one-candidate affairs.

Incumbent General Sessions Court Clerk Chris Turner effectively won the GOP primary for his position at today’s filing deadline for candidates in the Feb. 5 primaries. And Cheyenne Johnson won the Democratic primary for Property Assessor.

36. Assessor, Court Clerk Candidates Unchallenged in Primaries -

Two of the four Shelby County primary elections on the Feb. 5 ballot will be one-candidate affairs.

Incumbent General Sessions Court Clerk Chris Turner effectively won the GOP primary for his position at today’s filing deadline for candidates in the Feb. 5 primaries. And Cheyenne Johnson won the Democratic primary for Property Assessor.

37. Election Time Again -

Don't look now but here come the first local elections of 2008.

Thursday at noon is the filing deadline for candidates to file their qualifying petitions for the Feb. 5 Democratic and Republican primaries for Shelby County's General Sessions Court clerk and property assessor.

38. Coors Brewing Disputes Tax Assessments -

Commenting on the sale of Coors Brewing Co.'s Memphis plant to an employee-led group of investors in 2006, company president and CEO Leo Kiely reportedly called the transaction the most important milestone in a companywide cost-savings effort.

39. Property Assessor Office Vet Throws Hat in Election Ring -

Rita Clark, the Shelby County assessor of property who earlier this year announced she's not running for re-election in 2008, now has an heir apparent.

Cheyenne Johnson, currently Clark's chief administrative officer and who's worked in just about every corner of the assessor's roughly 150-person operation over the last 20 years, has decided to enter the race. The election is next August and - so far - she appears to be the sole contender.

40. New Slate of Public Officials Faces Unpopular Choice -

Late last year, Memphis mayor Willie Herenton floated the idea of a property tax increase to pay for putting 500 new police officers on the city's streets.

This year, the mayor's budget approved by the Memphis City Council included money to hire more than 100 new cops. Property owners in the city also got a breather. City finance officials said higher-than-expected revenue collections made a tax increase this year unnecessary.

41. Despite Flat County Tax Growth, Suburbs See Increases -

At roughly 1 percent, the growth in Shelby County's tax base over the past year was so minimal it was almost flat, according to certified property assessment figures released last week.

City officials in a few of the county's outer-edge suburbs, though, might look at those same numbers and find reason to smile. Municipalities such as Arlington and Millington saw double-digit percentage increases in their property assessments over last year.

42. New Online Tool Seeks To Make Property Assessments Quicker, More Accessible -

Since being sworn in as Shelby County Assessor of Property almost 10 years ago, it's become clear how Rita Clark feels about paperwork.

Paper records are becoming increasingly scarce around her Shelby Farms office, with tweaks constantly being made and features added to the assessor's official Web site, http://www.assessor.shelby.tn.us, in an effort to make paper record-keeping even more obsolete.

43. Budget Quirk Caused Property Owners To Pay More '05 Taxes Than Necessary, County Figures Reveal -

Thanks to a budgeting oddity that coincides with every countywide property reappraisal, taxpayers in Memphis and Shelby County paid more in property taxes in 2005 than necessary, according to recent figures compiled by the Shelby County Assessor's office.

44. Memphis Exodus? Not Exactly. -

The casual observer could be forgiven for looking at Shelby County as the black sheep in a family of eight counties, all of which are jockeying for attention and favor.

By some accounts, Shelby is antisocial (driving residents away with high taxes), irresponsible with money (letting debt accumulate) and generally adrift, at least when it comes to solving recurring issues like the cost of school construction, suburban sprawl and consolidation.

45. Sound Files of King Assassination on Register's Web Site -

The Memphis Police Department dispatcher is calm, barking out orders even as the city outside begins to descend into chaos. It's shortly after 6 p.m. on April 4, 1968, and unconfirmed reports have begun trickling in over the radio that something terrible has happened at the Lorraine Motel in Downtown Memphis.

At the edge of Memphis' metropolitan expanse - in a bedroom community with no property taxes, soaring home values and acre upon acre of undeveloped land - a Memphis private school that has outgrown its urban setting has found a new home.

48. Lakeland Reviews Planning Guidelines -

On the surface, it might seem strange that Scott Carmichael looks back to his 26 years as a sailor on a naval destroyer when he thinks about preparing for his current role as mayor of the city of Lakeland.

49. Assessor's Office Works to Establish Regional GIS -

Like so many other government agencies these days, Shelby County Assessor of Property Rita Clark's office has said good-bye to the old-fashioned ways it once got work done.

Going high-tech. Moving away from the days when staffers literally put pen to paper to mark details of the 360,000 residential and commercial properties in Shelby County, Clark's office is now squarely in the computer age.

50. Wolfchase Galleria Withdraws Tax Appeal -

A dispute over the appraisal of Wolfchase Galleria, the largest single source of property taxes in Shelby County, is officially over.

Tax representatives for the 1.1 million-square-foot retail behemoth have withdrawn an appeal to the state assessment appeals commission after taking their case before an administrative judge in January. They were working to get the $132 million appraisal for Wolfchase, which is owned by Simon Property Group Inc., nearly cut in half to about $73 million. Simon also owns Raleigh Springs Mall and Oak Court Mall in Memphis.
