Re: “New Hotel Could Rise on Blighted Corner

This hotel project should be on a larger scale. A 20 to 25 story hotel that would add to big convention groups coming to the city is needed.

Re: “Memphis (Again) One of the Most Affordable Cities

Memphis is affordable for sure.

But is Memphis desirable.

If you're not born in Memphis or the near surrounding areas, you have to get use to the poverty; the divided ethnic groups (there is only one race, the human race); the lack of forward thinking by political figures (Memphians elect the same old folks, either because of name recognition or some biased allegiance which all equates to backwards thinking); and everyone seems to be afraid of outside growth (meaning if you're not from Memphis or some local small town, you're an outsider who doesn't know how Memphis works).

When will native Memphians allow some outside thinking to help with growing the city and the county and stop building a wall around the area?

A wall may be fine for keeping local basketball and football talent here for the University of Memphis, but it needs to allow young forward thinking people to come in and take advantage of the affordable living here. Then these new residents can pay taxes that will help this city and county stay financially viable.

Re: “Memphis Farmers Market Names New Director

Having lived in Atlanta where a true farmer's market is open all year round this so called farmer's market in Memphis leaves a lot to be desired. New director or not.
