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.

Dr. Joris Ray should get credit for his cautious approach to reopening schools and athletics. But his recent threat to take Shelby County Schools out of the TSSAA seems to be driven by old grievances.
