Re: “Feed Memphis

When I lived in Memphis I spent many years cooking for and feeding the homeless, hungry, and needy. I have wondered how this issue was being addressed since I left. I am so greatful that the people's needs are being meet.

Re: “Treasures from the Shelby Foote Estate Sale!

My mother designed a needlepoint piano seat cover for Shelby when I was little. It was a black panther sitting in marigolds. Did it ever actually get finished and if so was it at the sale? Just curious, does anybody know? I got to go in and walk around the house which was awesome, but that was many many years ago.

Re: “Moving Forward

I used to cook for and feed the hungry, the needy, the homeless and anyone else that chose to come first at Galloway and then at Union Ave. Its something I will truly always miss. Since I no longer reside in Memphis or the surrounding area I am not actually affected one way or the other. Once the foundation was found to be unsafe they no longer allowd us to feed the people. We tried for months to find another church in the area that would let us feed the people and no one would allow us to. That's something I will never understand. While these historic buildings will always hold a special place in my heart its important that if they are found to be beyond repair that they are replaced by structures that maintain the flavor of the neighborhood. So much heritage and history is lost whenever these structures are torn down in order to "progress".

Re: “Overton Square Plans Unveiled

While I no longer live in Memphis (I used to reside in the Cooper Young area) I do know a grocery store if properly done in the area is a god idea. Maintaining the historic feel of the neighborhood is a key element though. Since this is not a new idea though we'll see and we'll see how it actully all works out. As for me I really enjoy living in a less crime ridden area. The difference for me is very refreshing. While Memphis was my home for most of my life I can't say I miss it. Living on the Gulf coast is a much softer and friendlier enviroment.

Re: “Another Mid-South Transgender Murder

Any death is a tradegy for what ever reason. Hate crimes especially so. Society can so hateful sometimes I do not understand why that is. Bless all of the family and friends and rest in peace.
