Clay Bailey, a lifelong Memphian, has worked as a reporter in the city four decades. He concentrated on suburban coverage for the bulk of his career, except for a stint as sports editor of The Daily Memphian when it launched in September 2018. He now is suburban editor and also serves as a freelance sports writer for The Associated Press.

With a short drive time to the proposed Ford Motor Co. campus, suburbs like Arlington and Lakeland are at a crossroads of how to address possible growth.
