Re: “Memphians Stage First Public Rebuke of MPD's List

Most of us came from work. And many of us who are self-employed give up money we could be making to be community activists and volunteers for charity. And no need to forward our sign-in sheet. I am sure MPD knows who we all are.

To heck with Peyton. This was a TIGER victory! Thank you, Chris. Nice to see your beautiful family. Tiger Nation will never forget that fall Saturday.

Re: “New Union Kroger Opens Next Week

A big thank to Kroger corporate for listening to the unique needs and wants of its Midtown customers regarding art and architectural and landscaping details. I look forward to the Corky's bbq, the cheese shop, the outdoor patio, the large window looking out on historic Idlewild Church, the Memphis mural, and the landscaping hiding the parking lot. That is the way to be a good corporate citizen. A few wishes: More than one cashier on duty late at night; a place of their own for employees to take breaks and eat; a cafe area that is always clean; a store that always smells nice; cold cases that are actually clean at the bottom; and a Customer Service Desk that is staffed by more than one harried person. These would be huge improvements over both the original Union Kroger and the Poplar Plaza Kroger. Kroger has a beautiful new building on Union; now it is time for management to fully support and supervise its wonderful employees and provide the SERVICE to match the new store.

Re: “Zoo Parking Plan Meetings Open to the Public

These meetings won't be "open" unless they use a room large enough to allow all those who wish to attend to not have to sit on the floor, have room for a court reporter, allow those who attend to express their opinions at the time and to their face, and actually receive input and suggestions by knowledgeable and expert people like Dennis Lynch, and post the place and times of the meetings a week beforehand so people can make plans, and also have them during non-working hours. If they plan to meet publicly just to discuss plans already agreed upon in back rooms, in mock transparency, and then shove them down our throats, it will just remain the status quo. We stakeholders ~ park advocates, homeowners, taxpayers, citizens and residents ~ want real and substantial input into these unnecessary plans to destroy acres of the northern part of the Greensward, including trees. There is no "swale." There is only Greensward! Midtowners have made no deal with the Zoo to grab more of the park. The State stopped motorized vehicles from driving through the park; that is the law, not a deal. Chuck Brady and his entire enabling Zoo board needs to be replaced by the Mayor.

Re: “City Council Passes Ordinance to Issue Fines to Panhandlers

Gotta love Spinosa. It's all about keeping tourists happy for the Downtown and Midtown developers. Developers pull the Council's strings.

Re: “Boyd Threatens Overton Park Conservancy Funding Over Greensward Suit

Boyd can't stand the sunshine. More to come. And he should be way more concerned how the Zoo spends the taxpayers' money and refuses to open their books, their 10- and 25-year plans, and their operations to the public. Oh, and I seem to remember that another contract-holder of the City sued the City of Memphis and the City Council, too....the Memphis Zoo. Why not pull their funding, Mr. Boyd?
