What Daily Memphians think*

“Anna is right — ‘it’s just a nice place to be.’ Memphis needs such places. Thanks to the Vergos family and all its wonderful staff for 75 years of memories.” — Scott Crosby, about Calkins: The Rendezvous is 75! There’s a lesson in that for Memphians.

“The bottom line is the plan for Tom Lee Park was never going to be able to accommodate the Barbecue Fest. … It is laughable to think that space in its new form would ever be able to host … and not destroy a lot of plants, hardscape, or infrastructure. …” — Ben Meeks, about MIM survey: Most barbecue teams want to move to Liberty Park

“Porter-Leath has served as Early Head Start grantee for Shelby County for 25 years (and) … serves over 400 families per year in state of the art facilities. … What is really needed is additional funding …” — Mike Warr, about Behind the Headlines: Program pushes pre-K for 2-year-olds from high-poverty areas
