Jan. 27 - It's reappraisal time, and notices are showing up in the suburbs. Those who live in the city will be getting their notices next week.
Mar. 1 - Angry parents are seeking the ouster of Coleman Elementary principal Victoria Matthews. Parents complain that Principal Victoria is too rough with the children and unfriendly to parents.
Mar. 1 - The town of Collierville will pay $13K for divers to repair the town's sewage lagoon. "Workers get used to the smell, which isn't nearly as bad as the lagoons they work in at chicken processing plants." There's a job I'd hate to have.
Mar. 2 - The Memphis Zoo's male giant panda Le Le may be too young to breed, according to fertility specialists, who tried, but failed, to collect a sperm sample from the sedated panda. There's another job I'd hate to have.
