Re: “Change of Direction Needed in Shelby County Juvenile Justice System

A well-written and incisive opinion which should be a mandate for our long-troubled Juvenile Court. Young people with early trauma and the corresponding mental and social issues grow up to be troubled and often dangerous adults. These children and society deserve better. A change starts with Juvenile Court judges who understand this, and who do not have their own ax to grind, their own pet theories, and their own elections to win, and a corresponding arrogance and bullying personality and preconceptions about both juveniles and their parents. The sheer rudeness and disrespect displayed in Juvenile Court wouldn't stand the light of day, but these hearings are closed to protect the minors. It would be far better for the minors if the public could see what goes on on Adams Avenue.

Re: “Dorothy "Happy" Jones, Legendary Activist, Dies

Memphis is a better place because of her. She was an example of a strong woman to me as a teenager in early Republican politics in the 1960's.

Re: “City Unveils $160M Fairgrounds Redevelopment Plan

The City and Mayor have once again run roughshod over the input and desires of citizens, neighbors and stakeholders and are in the process of handing over a huge piece of land in the city center to greedy developers. The neighbors from Orange Mound to South Memphis to Midtown to East Memphis have spoken loudly at the sham public input meetings about the need for a community space to serve the underserved youth of Memphis. And yet, the Mayor has once again shown lack of leadership in proposing retail stores in the age of online shopping and Youth Sports for those who can afford to travel across the country to elite tournaments, ignoring the needs of children just blocks down the street where poverty and crime define lives. Throwing a bone of the repurposing of Melrose High School won't assuage this travesty, Mayor. Follow the money and the developers, folks. The fix has been in on this for ten years, since the first Fair Ground proposal. There was a huge public outcry at the meeting against this unproven, one-trick-pony, unsustainable plan. Think, Mud Island fiasco.

Re: “New Study to Focus on Downtown Parking

Will the City then mothball it like they did the OPC Overton Park parking study?

Re: “UPDATED: MidSouth Coliseum Mothballed in New Plan

The public input into this process has been a sham. The developers had their plan all along, and our Mayor is their puppet. But to say this decision is being made to benefit the surrounding communities and police and fire is a cowardly, but quite creative, way to frame this travesty. Great spin doctoring, but I bet those worthy entities aren't buying it either. This fight is just beginning.

Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

Another failure of leadership by this administration and the Overton Park Conservancy. Even though Brooks and MCA are private institutions, they have both been an integral part of historic Overton Park. Another landmark Memphis institution that struggles and crashes while the City "leaders" watch and spring the bad news on our citizens. Or is it? Perhaps a grand design hatched, once again, by Memphis developers for a land grab. Zoo land grab??? Some of us have been trying to sound the alarm on that for years. The Zoo wants the entire Greensward and a "face" on Poplar. How can you mismanage a college like MCA so badly?
