Re: “King of (Memphis) Beer!

I now only drink GR "Gold" occasionally now. I really miss the cypress tree logo and "Golden Ale" as well. I think people are sophisticated enough now to not expect all ales to have a amber color in order to be called an ale. There was something really cool and authentic at the same time about the cypress tree logo. There is a lot of colorful art on cans and bottles these days which is all fine and fun. But there was just something about that label that was different and better. If GR ever needs a sales boost, they would get it if they brought that label back.

Thank you Uber and Lyft for making for hire transportation easy and efficient and thus lowering the drunk driving rate.

"It's Sierra Club's position that we need to leave all fossil fuels, including gas, in the ground." Scott Banbury

Just curious... What is powering the boat that Mr. Banbury is piloting?

Re: “Demonstrators Gather to Protest City Council Vote

Welcome to reality unionized government workers. We private sector workers have our benefits change every year. If you are unhappy with your benefits, you are welcome to test the job market to look for a better opportunity if you feel you are not valued.

As far as the huge increase in monthly premiums that no one can seem to afford, this is the case because the plans that these workers have currently are "Cadillac" plans with virtually no out of pocket expenses other than the premium itself. The city has encouraged you to explore additional coverage through the Obamacare exchanges, a government program which I am sure your union supported. You can find lower premiums there. Both my wife and I lost our PPO plans last year. Our out of pocket health care costs have gone up a lot as well. So much for "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

Re: “Game 24 Preview: Grizzlies vs. Mavericks

Vasquez not withstanding, the other teams can have the past players. Lowry gets the most pub, but he is a physical, get in the lane point guard and that doesn't match as well with our bigs.

Would still love to have Vasquez as a back up at his pay rate vs quality. Q-Pon is rounding out to be a very sold and balanced player, but a good point guard is still more valuable.

Re: “Postgame Notebook: Grizzlies 103, Jazz 94 — Yes, a Game Was Played

... and Rudy Gay looked as lazy as ever. 3 of 17 shooting with zero assists. What a waste of talent.

Re: “Council Critics of Half-Cent Sales Tax Bump Make (A) Sense or (B) No Sense

The pension structure needs to be changed before any taxes increase.

John, the property tax and sales tax affect businesses much more than residents. This is just another reason to move a business out of the core or into Mississippi.

And we wonder why people are leaving the city.
