The Cheat Sheet 

1 Sherrie Daly, the wife of professional golfer John Daly, begins a five-month federal prison term for money laundering. An FBI investigation called "Operation Dirty Pool" uncovered drug trafficking and other misdeeds allegedly committed by Sherrie Daly and her parents. But we have one question about this: Who comes up with the names for these stings?

2 Three Shelby County students -- two from Houston High and one from Germantown High -- make perfect scores on their ACT or SAT college entrance exams. We at the Flyer would congratulate them, but we are still bitter about that time we misspelled "droll" at the Memphis Literacy Council's Corporate Spelling Bee. Yes, it's true.

3 During a routine traffic stop near West Memphis, police find more than 128,000 Ecstasy pills hidden in the vehicle. Arkansas police pulled over the Dallas driver after a "minor traffic violation."

4 A Northwest Airlines flight attendant is arrested for trying to carry a hand grenade aboard an airplane in Milwaukee. The Cordova resident insisted the grenade was a "gift" for her son. Gosh, what a sweet family. Wonder what the son will get his mom for Mother's Day -- a bazooka?

  • Memphis' "Summer of Fear"

    Thirty-seven years ago this week, Memphis became a city in fear. In the late summer of 1969, a cold-blooded killer stalked the streets, and over a period of 28 days, police made one grisly discovery after another. In the end, the slayer was captured after a wild chase by a posse of ordinary citizens.
