1. Last Word: Trader Joe's, Bredesen at Rhodes and Haslam on Memphis
- Friday, September 14, 2018
Here comes Trader Joe’s with a Friday opening in Germantown after lots of mystery and delays and changes for what is a pretty simple concept. For so many of us, this has been a long-hoped for goal. It’s kind of up there with smuggling in Coors beer from the west in the 70s before it became available everywhere and Coors had a brewery here.
2. Seivers in College Hall? Yeah, Sure, Why Not?
- Friday, June 29, 2018
Don’t look for any campaign propaganda to be mailed out. There won’t be any personal stumping. Heck, Larry Seivers even refused to fluff up his own bio.
If the former University of Tennessee two-time All-America wide receiver finds his way into the College Football Hall of Fame, it will happen because of the numbers and the memories that made him one of the game’s best in the 1970s.
3. Season 3: Time for QB Mariota To Become a Star
- Friday, August 25, 2017
If Year 1 was a good start and Year 2 was another step in the right direction, what should we expect of Marcus Mariota in Year 3?
How about a playoff berth for the team he quarterbacks.
Granted, there are many other factors in play that will determine the success, failure or return to mediocrity of the Titans in 2017. Has the defensive backfield been successfully retooled? Can the offensive line remain one of the best in the NFL? Will the additions at wide receiver pay the expected dividends?
4. Flying Ace Sully Makes Case Against Privatization
- Wednesday, August 2, 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) – Who are you going to trust when it comes to what's best for the flying public? Members of Congress or the hero of the Miracle on the Hudson, retired Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger?
5. Busiest Season for Sports Hits Big Orange Country
- Friday, March 3, 2017
It’s the busiest time of the year for Tennessee athletics. There’s even some football to whet your gridiron appetite.

6. Final Goodbye: Roll Call of Some of Those Who Died in 2016
- Monday, January 2, 2017
Death claimed transcendent political figures in 2016, including Cuba's revolutionary leader and Thailand's longtime king, but also took away royals of a different sort: kings of pop music, from Prince and David Bowie to George Michael.
7. Cubs’ World Series Victory The Start of a New Narrative
- Friday, November 4, 2016
You can buy into the goat, into the black cat that walked in front of Ron Santo in 1969, into infamous Steve Bartman and, well, into the whole notion that the Cubs were cursed for 108 years, if you wish.
8. Rhodes Honors Judith Haas With Faculty Service Award

9. In a Players’ League, a Coach Is Captive to His Roster
- Friday, May 20, 2016
As the Memphis Grizzlies continue The Great Coach Search, it’s fair to ask this basic, and at some level, almost offensive, question:
Does it really matter that much?
Specifically, will the next Grizzlies’ coach, be he a veteran like former Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel (which appears more unlikely all the time), or an untested current NBA assistant, ultimately determine the direction of the franchise?
10. The Titans Will Be Sold. Soon. Here’s Why
- Saturday, December 19, 2015
Anybody got a spare $2 billion lying around? If so, the Tennessee Titans could be yours. Despite statements to the contrary by Titans management, there is growing sentiment locally and around the NFL that the team soon will be available to the highest bidder.

13. Preseason Analysis: Vols Will Defeat Oklahoma, Finish 8-4
- Saturday, August 8, 2015

17. Future Looks Worse for the Aging Titans
- Saturday, October 11, 2014

21. Grizzlies Trying to Create Season to Remember
- Friday, May 3, 2013
Disappointments past can set up unmitigated joy in the present. At its best, that’s how this whole sports fandom thing works.

30. Takeuchi Joins Memphis Veterinary Specialists
- Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Dr. Ai Takeuchi has joined Memphis Veterinary Specialists and PetMed Emergency Center as the facility’s first hospitalist.
Hometown: Kugenuma, Japan, but I grew up in Trinidad, U.S., Indonesia and Singapore as well.
Education: University of Pennsylvania, VMD; Mount Holyoke College, BA
Family: I am in Memphis with my husband, Chris, and my son, Aiden, who is almost 4 months old. We have a dog named Bovie and three cats: Rex, Mika and Lailee.
Activities you enjoy outside of work: Eating good food; I’m a foodie and love trying new restaurants. I also love to cook, horseback ride, read books and go on hikes or long walks with the family and our dog, Bovie.
Who has had the greatest influence on you? My mom had the most influence over me. She was a “Tiger Mom” and raising me in different countries while upholding cultural traditions must have been a challenge. She always pushed me to excel and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her support.
Why did you pursue a career as a veterinarian? At the age of 4, I went from wanting to be a bus driver to a veterinarian. I’ve always loved animals, and taking care of them is my dream job. They have no voice of their own and need someone to champion for them and take their interests at heart. They are all innocent little souls that need someone to watch over them.
What drew you to Memphis Veterinary Specialists? I wanted to work with boarded specialists who offered the highest level of medicine available. I enjoy emergency work as well as the challenges of complicated cases. It is imperative that I can give my clients a variety of medical options, including seeing a premier specialist.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? Whenever I can say I helped a family cope with their pet’s illness and was able to ease both their pain and help their pet. That is a great accomplishment for me.
What do you most enjoy about your work? Making a difference in an animal’s life and their family’s life. Being able to bring comfort to both the pet and the family makes my job fabulous. Even if the diagnosis is not a good one, at least I can answer their questions and help them make the right decision for their family.
