Dan Conaway is in a lifelong relationship with his city. They fight, but they get back together. His new book – “In a Colorful Place” – is a collection of his columns and the columns of Otis Sanford.

On John Simmons’ last visit, Carnival Memphis presented him their highest honor. That’s particularly interesting since John was instrumental in founding Curbi, the Carnival society named for those who stood on the curb and watched the Carnival parades go by.
