If he played college football, he'd be good to go

Re: “State Officials Search for North Memphis Bear

I think someone needs to give that bear a breathalyzer

Re: “Under Proposed Law, Women Will Have to Hear Their Fetus is Unviable- Twice

Will be struck down by the courts. It goes against Whole Women's Health decision where the state has to show a substantial benefit for this law. It doesn't. It's just a way to shame women.

Hooks...I was also told that Robert hooks displayed a baby photo in the window of his photograph studio in Memphis of my mother as a baby...I would like to find out if the photo still exists and authenticate the baby photo that I have

Re: “Vulnerable Vista

Easy win-win - put a Bass Pro like observation deck on the silos.

Re: “Update: Nary a Silo Will Tarnish Famous Vista

Would the off/on loading facilities in place now be able to access silos in that different location to the south and how much would it cost them to make that happen?

Re: “Update: Nary a Silo Will Tarnish Famous Vista

Again, Port of Memphis is right on the other side of that bluff.
Plenty of room there for silos.

Re: “Update: Nary a Silo Will Tarnish Famous Vista

Great move. Sure wouldn't want expanded & productive industry/business to permanently alter the complete view of this majestic brown 2k mile long river.

Re: “The New New Plan for Memphis International Airport

@datGuy - Likely most of the increases are due to infrastructure changes related to the increase in amenities. As to who's responsible, the article states:

..This is a lengthy, complex process, and its crucial that we do it right in order to deliver the best possible airport experience for Memphis travelers, said Pace Cooper, chairman of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority board of commissioners. Weve made progress thus far, and more significant changes are on the horizon. These changes are all part of a project that will result in a modern, convenient, state-of-the-art airport for our passengers, airlines, concessionaires and other partners...

Seems pretty obvious to me.

Now here in Memphis Tn the victims and target prey are Single Women family homebuyers and African Americans led by Raymond Austin Earline Austin Sheila Austin Marcus Payne, Phillip Martin Jr, Charles Kinchelow Jr Georgia Denton other associates motorcycle club members Shea, Liz,Ira Morgan Jesse Chatman Teddy Carr and husband, Casey Austin, Betty Austin, Joyce Austin Darlena Austin, DeCarlos Kinchelow, Peggy Ray Nickelberry Toya Ray Polk Keemeesha Minor, Frenchie Loullen Detroit Mi.

Re: “The New New Plan for Memphis International Airport

How did the price double for the negligible changes?

Who is responsible?

Re: “UPDATE: Commercial Appeal Changes, 17 Laid Off

I worked for several newspapers in the 1960s, and went to work for WHBQ-TV in 1969. I saw the old Memphis Press Scimitar afternoon paper fold in the 1970s, and the downward spiral of journalism in general in the decades following that. I was one of the unfortunate reporters let go in 1990 when WHBQ was sold to the low-brow Adams Communication Co. They lost over $10 million when they in turn sold the station to Fox; it was poetic justice. The recent layoffs at the CA are just further evidence of the sad state of journalism in America. I'm a native Memphian and treasure the many years I covered events in my old hometown. I'm saddened by the present state of affairs in local journalism, but that is the reality, and I don't ever see things turning around. I think what opportunities still existing in journalism will more likely be found in the small towns and rural communities. But journalism quality overall seems pretty dismal. The national media has become so left-wing biased and mean-spirited, that many viewers and readers have abandoned it. It's a sad state of affairs. I left Memphis many years ago for the Missouri Ozarks, and now retired, I can concentrate on my golf and flyfishing and leave the worries to someone else. Bill Anderson

Re: “Vulnerable Vista

This is a beautiful place and putting the silos there would alter the opportunity for people to come view the River and enjoy the peace and serenity of this enchanted space.
