This is discovered every few years and has been published in the Memphis Commercial Appeal from time to time. I have always wondered why the city parks and maintenance departments isn't required to construct their buildings on some of the unused Industrial zoned land that sits vacant throughout Memphis instead of ruining unspoiled areas usually adjacent to nice neighborhoods causing their deterioation?

Da Pollen is stopping me up, and I can't breadth! Something at Joe's can clear up dis I know.Se ya there.
Rabid-oux says it all. He should move to California or to New York. They need more Democratic challangers.
In the 50s Ed Crump would attend the High School football games and give out peter paul mounds candy bars. As a band member and a recipient of free candy I would never have a bad thought about Mr. Crump nor will I ever say an unkind word. May he rest in peace.
Take a look on the "east parkway side" of overton park and see how the memphis parks maintenance has filled up the land area with parking lots and maintenance buildings. With all of the vacant land nearby that is off site from the park this encroachment all could be moved away, the land returned, and the parkland restored! 65years ago they were not such a presence. Think about this Mid-towners, ask for this land to be cleared and a small oak forest re-planted.
For most of my life when I buy tires a disposal fee is charged for the old tires. Why aren't they actually disposed of at the time of the trade?
Always remember the more jobs removed from the private sector the fewer tax dollars that actually are available from the private sector. That means government collects private sector dollars to pay for government employed workers that could be handled by already operational businesses and their taxpaying employees. This would help keep the businesses open to pay their taxes and improve the city.
