Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

Nearly every weekend, Laura Elliott picks up a collection of rescue dogs that can’t find a home in Memphis and drives them to Illinois, where there are families waiting to adopt.
