Re: “Roland vs. Lenoir: Next Year’s Mayoral Battle Flared Up in County Budget, Tax-Rate Debate

What jcov40 said.

(And, jcov40), yes, "reappraisal" and "appraisal" are the terms of art.)

Re: “Goodbye Josie: The Memphis Theatre Community Loses a Beloved Educator

I worked with Josie during the summer of '65 at the Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre. I was 19 and knew it was, even while we were living it, a pivotal time in all our lives. We shared a great appreciation for Steve Malin and Henry Swanson (who had both been my teachers at the University of Florida.) I remember that Josie was willowy, mischievous, had a robust laugh, and was (as we all were) deeply committed to being completely present in her work and in her life. I never saw her after that summer, yet I knew she would make her artistic mark wherever she would reside. It was heartwarming to read of her accomplishments and to know how many lives she touched. ~ H. Richard Greene

Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

It's sadder to see a giant not from here kick loyal decades long employees to the curb and be indifferent to the community. We are a free weekly paper in the same market as the CA, a paid daily. We are only tangentially in the same business with Gannett-- who are kicking the crap out of the paper-- and it's Gannett I'm kicking. I get that it's confusing. But that's an important distinction

Re: “Roland vs. Lenoir: Next Year’s Mayoral Battle Flared Up in County Budget, Tax-Rate Debate

As with all reappraisals, thousands of homeowners in the county will receive tax increases. some will pay the same taxes and many, perhaps thousands, will get tax cuts. That would have been true wherever the rate was set. Since a reappraisal affects each property owner individually, it is impossible during a reappraisal year to set a rate that would give everybody a tax cut without bankrupting the county. It is possible to calculate mathematically the
percentage of appraisal increase that would result in a homeowner's paying the same property taxes this year as last year. At the adopted $4.11 rate, it's 6.3 percent. Had the rate been set at $4.13 it would have been 5.8 percent. Homeowners whose appraisals went up more than 6.3 percent will pay higher county property taxes in the coming year than they did in the past year. Those whose reappraisals went down or increased less than 6.3 percent, will have a tax cut. If you want to know whether you and your neighbors will be paying higher or lower taxes or the same, go to the county assessor's website and check the reappraisal values compared to last year's values. jcov40

Always take a competitor's take on things with a grain of salt. And it's sad to see other reporters kick a paper while it's down.

Re: “Made in America

Oh, no, I just found out that the manufacturer of my mattress said warranty is void because I removed tag. Clever way to disallow most claims, I figure.

Hey Cheryl! I can confirm that schedule having dropped you off and picked you up a time or two back in our school days. My WREG gig started at 3 a.m. Relevant daily content's demanding stuff.

It's not really a morning newspaper any more. It's an afternoon paper that comes out the next day.

Re: “Commercial Appeal Editor To Staff: "Work From a Coffee Shop."

Normal working hours at a morning newspaper? My shift at the CA was always 5:30 p.m to 1:30 a.m. That's when the work of putting the paper together happened.

Yeah like, uh, you know, there was that one sorta, maybe, kinda... Nope, sounds un-American.
The best we can hope for is a Viking invasion. Or if Jerry Brown wasn't such a dick sometimes.

Re: “Burger Week!

Growler's would have been a great place for the burger week. i missed it this time, but there sure are a lot of people who appreciate the place
Memphis as Chuck burgers are amazing, I'm happy to report, which is why I'm currently trying to stay away from them. I know I'd get horribly fat if I don't restain myself.

Re: “Fancy Art Critic "Knocked Out" by Memphis Pedestrian Crossings

I work downtown and have yet to see a single person sit at those tables. I think that says something when even the homeless population isn't using seating. Not to mention the brilliance of putting a bunch of tables and chairs on top of asphalt with absolutely no cover in the middle of summer.

It's a good thing that newsworthy events only happen during normal working hours!
