The Cheat Sheet 

News you need to know

1. The Commercial Appeal reports that Shelby County has more registered sex offenders than any other county in Tennessee: 1,189 compared to 1,104 in Nashville’s Davidson County -- a difference of just 85 people, but enough to make us number one. Why is it that whenever our community is top-ranked, it’s usually for something bad?

2. How many times are people going to leave children in hot vehicles? A daycare owner inadvertently dismantles the siren that reminds workers to check their vans after unloading kids, resulting in a baby left in a rear seat. And a mother somehow forgets she has her child with her when she parks to go shopping. In both cases, the children were found (and rescued) in time. What will it take? A leash law?

3. A barbecue contest pitting some of Chicago’s best cookers against cookers from Memphis declares that the Windy City makes the best ’cue. The fact that the cookoff was held in Chicago had nothing to do with the results, we’re sure. To use a barbecue term: Hogwash!

4. The town of Arlington becomes the latest Shelby County community to leave the Memphis Public Library System, joining Germantown, Collierville, and Millington. Who’s next? Memphis?
