Cinematic City

CBS News posted this stunning time-lapse video of Memphis. The video, made by Jason Allen Lee, gives you a whole new perspective of life in the Bluff City. Thanks to Memphis mayor A C Wharton Jr. for pointing out the video on his Facebook page.

Mural planned for underpass on Cooper Street

Volunteers and Memphis College of Art students hope  to liven up the underpass on Cooper Street at Peabody Park with a vibrant mural.

A group led by Betsy Robinson has launched a fundraising campaign on ioby to raise the $1,655 needed to bring the mural to life. The group has raised $750 so far and says work on the mural, which would be located on the railroad underpass on Cooper between Higbee Avenue and Central Avenue, could begin June 1 and be completed by August 1.

“So many people drive under this forgotten trestle on a daily basis,” the group stated in its fundraising announcement.  “It is dark and dingy, yet it is in the center of a great neighborhood.  By painting a colorful mural the aesthetics and esteem of the neighborhood and its members will be increased.”

Projects like the proposed mural, while they may seem like minor improvements in the grand scheme of things, can have a profound impact. In 2001, the Cooper-Young Historic District trestle, which hovers over Cooper near Central, was dedicated. The 150-foot long steel sculpture depicting homes and businesses  in the neighborhood has since served as the  “front door” to Cooper-Young.

Speaking of Cooper-Young, the place is booming.

The Cooper Young Business Association says activity in the neighborhood is at an all-time high, with 187 businesses, including 16 that have opened since January, operating in the area. The business association recently hung 26 banners, featuring images of Cooper-Young business owners and patrons, on street poles in the area, launched a new logo for the neighborhood and made improvements to the gazebo area at the intersection of Cooper and Young Avenue.

 

 

 

Are Schools Really “Failing” — And Are They Being “Reformed”?

A very interesting, cautionary opinion piece from American Journalism Review about how the media covers schools.

http://www.ajr.org/Article.asp?id=5280

We’ve spent a lot of time covering the schools in recent years in the paper and on the Behind the Headlines show. The reform efforts of Superintendent Kriner Cash, the Gates Foundation efforts, the rise of charter schools, and of course the pending consolidation of city and county schools, all have occupied a lot of space. For good reason, I think.

After reading this, though, I’m frantically trying to think about where, when and how often I’ve fallen into some of the easy lines described by Farhi.

Two items from the story that stuck out to me:

“’The discussion [of the state of schools] is quite simplistic. I’m not sure why exactly. My suspicion is that the media has trouble with complexity.'”

“In 2011, the percentage of parents who gave their children’s school an A grade was at its highest ever (37 percent), whereas only 1 percent of respondents rated the nation’s schools that way. Why the disparity in perceived quality? Gallup asked people about that, too. Mostly, it was because people knew about their local schools through direct experience. They only learned about the state of education nationally through the news media.”

 

The Week in Review

A quick note that, as of this week, we’ll be publishing our weekly edition, The Memphis News, on the weekend. The next edition will come out this Saturday.

There are a number of reasons for the switch. First and foremost, publishing on the weekend fits the content mix better. To some degree, we’ve always viewed The Memphis News as a kind of week in review, with a mix of the most important events from the prior week along with an in-depth story – one that’s longer and more multi-faceted than we’re able to do in the daily – on an issue or topic of relevance.

Because a portion of the weekly edition’s content is essentially a selection of the key stories from the prior week, when we published on Wednesday, there was a lag between publication and the prior week’s stories. There won’t be now.

In terms of the cover story and editorial page, those elements have always been a better fit on a weekend, I think. They’re more the kinds of stories you want to have time with – my ideal reader picks the paper up on a Saturday or Sunday and takes it to a coffee shop, to their breakfast at home, or even to brunch.

We’ll continue to be distributed in office buildings across town and in or near key business lunch locations. So, our core business readership – if they don’t pick the paper up over the weekend – will still have easy access to the paper.

Thanks to everyone who reads the paper. We appreciate it.

The Impossible Dream: A Grocery Store in Midtown?

All I can say is Yes! Andy Meek has the story that Midtown is a big step closer to having a new grocery store, this one at Overton Square. As someone who’s lived and worked in Midtown and Downtown for 13 years now, the prospect of a new, clean, well-organized and properly run grocery store within a short driving distance is almost too much to handle.

The company, Associated Wholesale Grocers, operates different types of grocery stores around the country. If the deal goes through, which isn’t certain, it’s not yet clear which type of AWG store will be built. Let’s hope it’s a Thriftway, though. I’ve been to Thriftway stores up in the Pacific Northwest and they are usually great.

The impossible dream.

The holy grail.

The cliche’s abound.

What’s it say about my age that I’m so excited about this? Sigh.

Regardless, I’m excited. And if a grocery store does go in at the big retail development at Poplar and Cleveland, as is possible, then us Midtowners could actually have options for shopping. The dream, the dream.

(And it’s pretty cool that Andy broke this newest development, since the news itself has over the years sparked remarkably fierce competition among us, The CA and The MBJ — a competitiveness second only to coverage of a possible Target in Midtown. Andy? Any update on the Target?)
