Re: “No Next Day Election Results For Gannett Newspapers

I read the CA everyday on my phone or a laptop. I know lots of news readers and I know no one who reads via print. Dead tree news still provides ad pages but it's dead.
I also think the CA has hired some great new writers it's a much better news site than just a few months ago.

Re: “Transportation Fee Could Yield $60M a Year

Memphis will never reach it's full potential without a fully funded transit system. What people will realize is that it not only will help those without automobile access but if it's run properly it will attract customers of choice - those who actually have access to cars but prefer public transit. Those of us who are transit boosters must speak to both customers. People in need and young people who don't want to drive.
Thanks to Ms. Smith for always reporting on transit.

Re: “Convention Center Hotel Planned for Plaza East of City Hall

Your not a Debbie Downer just ill informed. One Beale was/is a passion project from a local who owns a hamburger franchise. A small fry if you will.
Do yourself a favor and use the google news function to search Lowe's Hotels. They are currently building hotels in several cities. Building means actual construction not drawings.
It's a publicly traded company that is in the property development business. They have no interest in wasting their time. These are top of class property developers who will 100% build this project.

Re: “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Midtown's Building Boom

Can a reporter pls explain the relationship between Madison Ave gated complex developers and Councilman Berlin Boyd? Hes one of the developers but he has no experience in development has a thin overall resume so I doubt he was bringing cash to the table. Why Boyd? Why a City Council President?

Re: “Welcome to It City

The crime of South Junction Apartments should be punished by 30 years to life. Stop building ugly suburban boxes with suburban styling downtown.

Re: “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Midtown's Building Boom

Two different issues at play- new urbanist apartments being built in empty lots is great. Tearing down historical homes to build new houses is not the same. Old homes are what makes Midtown desired ..if you dont like old homes then you will find lots of new homes in Memphis but dont destroy what makes Midtown special.

Re: “Bogard going in Stanley BBQ Space

I think this is amazing: this will be one of the few black owned businesses in Midtown. And they plan to help the poor by sharing the profits with a food bank. Bravo!
