Lakeland City Hall site

for sheriffs mini station

In an effort to take services to various communities, Shelby County Sheriff Mark Luttrell Jr. announced a mini substation will be placed inside Lakeland City Hall.

Deputies will use the substation to write incident reports and visit with citizens who might have information about crime in their neighborhoods. Materials will be on display at the station that will outline the various community programs offered by the Sheriffs crime prevention unit.

The Lakeland City Hall substation will be the second one in that community. The other is located at Belz Factory Outlet World, 3536 Canada Road.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new substation in Lakeland is at 10 a.m. Friday at 10001 U.S. Highway 70.


New opening times

set for some schools

Eighteen elementary schools that currently open at 7:30 a.m. will open at 8:30 a.m. beginning with the 2003-2004 school year, Memphis City Schools officials announced.

In addition, all secondary schools will open at 7:30 a.m. beginning in August.

One recommendation contained in an MGT of America management and performance report suggested the district align school starting times to allow for efficient transportation routing. District staff found after studying bus routes that $1.7 million could be saved by moving the starting times.

Elementary schools making the change are: Alcy, Carnes, Cherokee, Egypt, Florida-Kansas, Gordon, Graceland, Graves, Hollywood, LaRose, Levi, Oak Forest, Oakshire, Ridgeway, Shelby Oaks, White Station, Whites Chapel and Winchester.

In addition, the Downtown School and Lucie Campbell Elementary in the Frayser area will open at 8:30 a.m.
