Cover enough stories and you run into some of the same people you have encountered before.
That was the case in our current cover story in The Memphis News on the Occupy Memphis movement.
Among those at the encampment in Civic Center Plaza is Aaron Harrington, whom we met about two years ago in our cover story on the city’s still evolving approach to trying to end homelessness in Memphis.
At the time, Harrington was doing pretty well for himself after a couple of years among the homeless. He had a job at a Midtown supermarket and a place to stay and after our story hit, a reader donated a bicycle to replace the one Harrington had that wasn’t working.
Several months ago, Harrington lost his job in the shuffle of supermarket ownership in the Memphis market and he’s joined Occupy Memphis.
He told us he is considering moving elsewhere and has a few leads on some landscaping jobs once the weather gets warmer.
