Re: “Hot Tubs and Elvis

I took the WSJ piece as nothing but bullshit, and any rational thinking person would know that's all it was. EPE would be more successful getting the Mississippi River to flow West than packing up and moving Graceland. Total bullshit! I've heard several people that live in Nashville say, Nashville has become unaffordable, stressful, and deeply in debt, and they're going to have to raise taxes on those overpriced properties and homes to keep from bankrupting.

Re: “MATA Head:Trolleys Have Set Stage For Success in First Year

I was hoping they would have the Riverfront loop up and running for Memphis and May. The cars have to be refurbished or well find some other method..." What is this other method Rosenfield is speaking of? It's important they get the Madison and Riverfront lines running, because that will certainly change things.
The Memphis region would quickly adapt to light rail, if it were available for people to ride.

Re: “Let's Get Together! Your 2019 Guide to the Mid-South's Fairs & Festivals

I plan on attending several of these festivals. It's going to be tight, with this weekends crawfish and wing festival, but I plan to attend them both. I was hoping the Margarita Festival would bring a Margaritaville restaurant and hotel to the riverfront, uptown, or somewhere close to Beale.
My mother told me that several years ago she recommended to someone from MIM to start a MIM cheesecake, pie, cake, and fried chicken bake/cookoff. She said that it would bring in a different crowd of people and they could get Tyson, Pillsbury, Martha White or Hershey to become corporate sponsors of these various events. Memphis is more than BBQ and bringing in bakers and chicken fryers from around the country, to the convention center, would be another feather in the crown of MIM.
I wonder why the Beale Street management doesn't have a concert series that runs from June through October/November. They could set up a stage at Main and Beale or in front of Hardrock, then bring in various main stage performers twice a month to perform. Sell tickets and set prices fitting for each performer, but affordable for the person that can't pay $300 a ticket and they would easily draw 40k or more people to downtown for each performance, and the businesses along Beale would do exceptionally well too. They could even use Robert Church park as a venue for performances.

Re: “Pipe Dream: Megasite Sewer Line into the Mississippi River Causes Strife

A shit show is an understatement. They should abandon this industrial site idea, focus on building up other industrial sites in West Tennessee, and turn this location into subdivisions, retail, and a large amusement park resort area.

Re: “Voice of Memphis 3.0 Opposition Not a Memphis Resident

She's bogus, but I have to give it to her, because she has some bold and ambitious ideas for that area of town. The mayor wants to put manufacturing in that area, but Carnita Atwater want to turn it into a residential,resort, and amusement park area. I personally like her ideas, because it would certainly make New Chicago more appealing to live and visit. She would need several hundred acres for a descent size amusement park, but I like what she is proposing.
I think the city should take a serious look at what she is proposing and see how they can incorporate some of these ideas into the 3.0 plan. I am sure the residents of New Chicago would prefer their community becoming a resort area than looking out their doors at a manufacturing plant.

Re: “Faith Leaders Urge Governor Lee to Welcome Immigrants, Refugees

This type of bigotry being proposed by Bruce Griffey will have an negative impact on Tennessee economically. Corporations will look at this bigoted legislation and think twice about relocating here, because of bigots like Griffey.

Re: “Community Group Plans March in Protest of Memphis 3.0

Does Ms. Atwater live in New Chicago? I was told that she lives in one of the more affluent suburb cities.
