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.

Jaren Jackson Jr. was voting for president for the first time. 93-year-old Beverly Nash was not. But they crossed paths Wednesday at the Agricenter voting station. And it was beautiful.
