Re: “Noted Memphis-born Dancer Lowell Dennis Smith Dies

Lowell was an incredible teacher! My favorite! I just found out yesterday (On Sunday October 31st 2011) that he had passed away. I am very sad to hear this news. He had a magnetic presence, always very charming, sometimes strict but combined it with his incredible funny quips and made the class laugh a lot. His class was the most fun and he always attracted a full to capacity class even though it was at 8Pm. i just miss him so much. i did get to have a nice one on one conversation with him on something other than ballet. I had gone to the schools office and he had walked in just behind me. We talked about something which had made the headlines in the papers and we both had the same views on it. It somehow stuck with me, because most other teachers, even if they did have a conversation with student would probably discuss some aspect or vein related to ballet. I felt this incredible warmth and sincerity from Lowell and that is one reason I never missed his evening class (twice a week) and neither did majority of the other regulars. That was Lowelll's charisma, you wanted to be in that class because he made it special with his majestic presence and teaching technique. That afternoon was the last time I saw him as he was not going to be teaching in this New York school anymore and was in the office to collect his last check. This was ,maybe about 5 or 6 years ago. i have such fond memories about him and my heart aches so much at this sad news. He died to young. My sincere condolences to his family and loved ones and I would like you all to know that he was a very popular teacher , very loved by his students and extremely tops at teaching ballet. He was special. I love you Lowell and I miss you and want to tell you i am so happy that I had the honor to be in your presence all those evening for a few years You will always be remembered. Love -a

Re: “Calendar

I am so proud that my mother, Martha Jean "The Queen" Steinberg was honored at the W. C. Handy Awards last Sunday (11.14.10). The Steinberg Family had just received the Brass Note on Beale Street earlier in the day. It was wonderful fpr our family to celebrate with the Willie Mitchell Family, The "Sleepy" John Estes Family, and so many others on such an auspicious occasion. Performing the Tribute song "I Matter" written by Joseph Wooten, was a highlight for me for now I can say, I have sung on Beale Street. I am in seventh heaven! Now for the historical marker for The Queen! God Bless You I Love You!

Re: “Tom Prestigiacomo Switches Stations

It's great to see where you landed. I remember those days when you were at WAKY. Enjoyed hearing you on the radio and seeing you at Seneca when we were there. My name is Gary and I've now live in the Fort Worth area. Keep it going.

Re: “Fashion Forward

Dear Mary and Justin:

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your wonderful article on Memphis fashion to brighten my new year's morning. Yes, there are fashionistas in the Memphis and mid-south area although, as you discovered, they are somewhat difficult to find.

Most folks do not understand that fashion is not just about "the beautiful people" or being fabulously rich - it's all about a sense of style. Anyone can go to their closet (if they own anything more than shorts, t-shirts, scrubs, flip flops or huge athletic shoes) and pull together a stylish outfit within a few minutes.

Tired of that old suit or dress? Add a colorful tie, belt, scarf or pin, work on your attitude in front of a mirror and then head out your door in confidence.

Re: “Butcher Brothers in New Novel

Remember it? I was living in East Stadium Hall, which is no longer a dorm, when it was going on, but I never set foot in the World's Fair even though it was quite literally right next door. The idiot PA announcer's voice for the carnival rides still echoes in my head, along with all the alcohol I consumed freshman year.

Re: “Butcher Brothers in New Novel

This brings back memories...Whatever happened to Basil Hero, who was Harold Ford's favorite whipping boy in the media? I remember that Ford would derisively call him Basil 'Zero.'

Re: “Letter from the Publisher

Were it not for The Memphis Flyer, both the hardcopy edition and the website, I would not know what in the hell is going on in this city. The Flyer continues to be the gold standard for writing and reporting. Some of the most creative minds and progressive people in this community contribute to your publication and their voices continually help make Memphis a better place. Thanks, Flyer. Happy New Year.
