Re: “Herenton’s Choice

Matthew- hardly a biased comment. If Herenton were not attempting to somehow associate himself with Dr. King's legacy, he would not have made his announcement during MLK50 week. Nor would he have stated "Dr. King's agenda is unfinished. My agenda, when I was mayor, is unfinished".

While he is free to run for mayor, his participation increases the odds of the election devolving into a political circus. We have several serious issues that need to be vetted such as the stagnant local economy and depressed wages, the prospect for de-annexation, our crumbling local infrastructure and whether this city can ever field a mayoral candidate that can serve as a true leader instead of simply a reactionary role to issues as they surface. His participation increases the odds that candidates will be more likely to devolve to race baiting as occurred during Herentons failed congressional bid in 2010.

Re: “Memphians Respond to State Punishment Over Statues

FUNK-
I get what you are saying and this is really besides the point of the article, but...
Nashville was founded in 1779, over 60 years before it was selected as the state capital. Should another location been selected for the capital, Nashville would likely still exist today. However, it is unlikely it would have grown to its current scale.

Based on recent legislative activity, it seems that the state legislature holds only slightly more disdain for Memphis than they do Nashville.

Re: “‘Devastating’ Development

Funk- Too true.
However, I disagree with the comparison to Austin and Nashville. In both of those cities, the locusts arrived on their own volition. In the case of the proposed developments on Madison (adjacent to the P&H and at McLean), Memphis is actively baiting the locusts with public money via tax incentives.
I find it to be a different issue when I am being forced to financial contribute to a development (and a developer's proforma).

Re: “Court Orders Eviction of Memphis Family

Tom says he was there in the courtroom and notes that (the claim) "was not supported by any documents introduced into evidence". Well it seems he may be showing a bit of bias. The CA's continued coverage corroborates the Flyer's account: "Reyes mother and developer Henry Turley Jr. say they entered into an agreement in 1993 that both parties believed conveyed Turleys ownership interest in the upstairs condominium to Kuglin".

Furthermore:
"During a two-day bench trial ending Tuesday, repeated efforts to introduce evidence about the intent of the 1993 transaction drew objections from the Madisons lawyer and were rebuffed by the judge".

Henry Turley is not now nor was he then some newby developer. He is as well seasoned as they come. If he believes that he conveyed ownership to Kuglin, you can take that to the bank. In light of this, the judge's complacency- which seemed simply misguided and perhaps marginally biased in favor of the impertinence of Joshua Kahane/ Glankler Brown- is now taking on the air of something more purposeful and maybe even sinister.

Re: “Court Orders Eviction of Memphis Family

Tom-
You may be taking a few liberties yourself. The unit is clearly listed as a condo with both the Register of Deeds and the SC Assessor of Property. The building and the condo are separate properties. If there is/was in fact a deal regarding even "just her living unit", it holds the same validity as ownership of the remainder of the building.

Re: “Infill Frenzy: New Developments in Cooper-Young

No surprise here though: the homes are being built by Jay Reedy, locally known in the industry for the questionable quality of his construction. Directly tied to daddys company: Reedy & Company Rental Property Management. Looks like they may be building these POS homes to rent.
And the architect is just that, a quote-unquote architect: Sullivan Associates Home Design- an unlicensed outfit that cannot legally call themselves architects because they do not have a license to practice as such. Yeah, Jay Reedy er, JBJ certainly went to some great lengths to respect the quality and character of Cooper Young. This outfit is exactly why Landmarks should be established for Cooper Young. These people are known for their lack of quality, and thus see no problem with dropping their same painted sh!t into in any neighborhood they please. If it were legal to ban this outfit from from Memphis and its surrounding area, the region would be better for it.
