YEAR AFTER YEAR, THE RICES RECEIVE CLIENT SATISFACTION AWARDS FROM THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS BECAUSE: “Larry is simply the best divorce lawyer in the business. His team of attorneys and paralegals make sure that their clients are well informed and taken care of on a daily basis. They get results and make even difficult divorces come to a conclusion quickly and smoothly.” -Robert LaBonia “Nick and his team were far and away the best experience I’ve had with any legal team. They handled my case perfectly and covered every detail. They made the entire process painless dare I say pleasant which is hard to believe for going through a divorce. I really appreciate the length his firm went to make me feel at ease the entire time.” - Chris Morgan “Larry Rice helped me navigate through a difficult divorce. He was kind, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. I never would have made it without him. I would recommend him to anyone!” -Dawn Hicks “As a client, Mr. Rice and his staff provided superlative knowledge and guidance, with not only my best interest in mind, but more importantly, that of my child. With results far beyond expectations, I can attest to Mr. Rice and staff’s organized handlings of what are always emotional and difficult times in the client’s life.” -Larry Hensley “I cannot express my gratitude and complete satisfaction of a job well done from such a brilliant and caring team as the Rice Divorce Team. They are indeed top notch and will beat your every expectation!” -Jennifer Roberts “Larry Rice is one of the best attorneys in the Memphis area. I know firsthand because he was the best attorney for my personal situation, and for that I am grateful. I recommend Mr. Larry Rice without hesitation as one of the best divorce attorneys.” - Dr. John E. Bell “To say this man is a brilliant attorney would be a gross understatement. Keen instincts, an innate understanding of the human psyche, and adaptive strategies give him an extraordinary edge. He clearly intimidates opposition. If you are looking for representation that will afford you a calming sense of control during a most tumultuous time, the clear choice is Larry Rice.” -Elizabeth Holman “Larry Rice handled my divorce the way that I wanted it handled. I wanted to work out a settlement that would not leave me enemies with my ex, but would still protect my interests in my 23 year marriage. We walk into his office with a heavy heart and walk out knowing we have the best on our side! I recommend his entire office and staff to anyone needing legal help.” - Leanne Simmons “One of the best phone calls I ever made was to Nick Rice. Nick's knowledge of the law and his dedication to his clients is extraordinary. He is clever, intelligent, steadfast, well-spoken and confident. Nick did an outstanding job in the courtroom, and he gave me peace of mind throughout the entire process.” -Beth Bumgardner The Rice Divorce Team 901.526.6701 662.469.6320 www.aboutdivorce.com

good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children… Proverbs 13:22
This short passage in Proverbs gives us the instruction to plan, even when our planning is for people that we may never meet. In 1983 right out of college, I started my career in the investment business with a man named Russell Clack. Russell and I worked together for several years, and we were selfishly at odds with each other in the firm as he and I fought for position in the firm. We both left the firm for what at the time we thought was a better opportunity, and we did not see each other for 23 years. Our paths may not have crossed, but this is Memphis, so we certainly knew of the success we each had achieved as we matured in our careers. The maturity for each of us was based on a new relationship with God and the understanding that relationship brought to our families and careers. In fact, it was not our business success that crossed our paths, but our involvement in different ministries across Memphis that allowed each of us to know the change that had occurred in our lives, even though we once were at odds with each other early in our careers. In 2006, the Lord brought us together to start an investment firm, and he and I were partners until Russell’s death this past September. Russell had taken care of his wife Barbara for several years as she battled Alzheimer’s, and she passed away in 2016. Russell was devoted to Barbara, caring for her at home in the remaining months of her life even though she did not know who he was. It was during this time that he wrote a book entitled, Before She Is Gone. It was also during this time that Russell’s own body began showing signs of age due to a lung disease that had taken his father’s life, and was now causing Russell difficulty too.
Russell’s death for me and for Melissa Coleman, the firm’s administrative assistant, was a most difficult time. We both had experienced a major loss and would have welcomed a period to mourn, but instead we had to step up to do the job that Russell had been doing for his clients the past 35 years. Hundreds of families that Russell had been taking care of by providing all avenues of financial advice, from how to buy a home, bury a loved one, or pay for college, all the while guiding their investments through difficult financial markets. On the day of Russell’s death, Melissa had to call some of his closest friends/clients who had depended heavily on him, and thankfully because of their close working relationship, she knew most of them well. It was when I started calling them several days later that I received one of the greatest gifts I have ever received. As I spoke to each and every one of them, Russell had planned for his death, and they knew all about me as he had assured them that they would be in better hands with me than they had been with him. Russell knew that for him to completely fulfill the job he had been doing for years, he had to leave his clients with the confidence that they would be in good hands after he was gone. My mentor Lee Stafford has preached to me for years that one has not successfully done one’s job until they have planned for their succession. To paraphrase Proverbs, the successful person has not been a success until they have planned for the ones that will come behind them, whether they are your children’s children or those God calls you to work with daily. Seek the Peace and Prosperity of Memphis. Jim Walker

Fashion Pop! By Augusta Campbell
Fashion is feeling rather playful right now with its bright colors, frisky patterns, and carefree pairings. Dressing doesn’t have to be so serious, so let the clothing and accessories of the season relax and have fun. For this shoot, we got to go inside AutoZone Park where Memphis sports fans get to play on a pretty regular basis. Redbirds Baseball and Memphis 901 FC Soccer call the stadium home, and it was the perfect place for us to knock out some unconventional style. We loaded up on mismatched prints, color wheel hues, and interesting shapes for this month’s editorial. The rule of this fashion game is that there are no rules…just tons of individual style to cover your bases and score big. Get ready for some fun and light-hearted fashion-it’s Game On.
Mixing different patterns looks modern right now and works when the colors and proportions balance just right. Maxi dress from Sorelle Boutique. Jacket from Oak Hall. Earrings from Kittie Kyle. Necklace from Joseph.
Soccer game style can be feminine and the right time to show off a great mid-length skirt and fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hat. Pleated skirt from Oak Hall. Ruffled top from Sachi; hat from Joseph; both in Laurelwood. Leather belt and shoes, both from Sorelle Boutique. Tribal necklaces from Kittie Kyle.
Be a fashion darling with this mixed-up ensemble. The mix of florals, stripes, whimsy, and color are knocking out this look. Popsicle top from Lori James; leather baseball cap from Joseph; both in Laurelwood. Skirt and necklace from Kittie Kyle. Modelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes.
Dress and straw hat from Oak Hall. Earrings from Kittie Kyle.

School is out and vacations begin…including those of some Performing Arts organizations. Traditionally, arts season was September to April and then everyone went to the beach or mountains. That is not a cut and dried situation now. In fact, some of our arts groups are as busy in the summer as ever. What is not readily apparent to theatergoers is the plethora of children and youth workshops and camps that take place --Buckman Arts Center, Opera Memphis, the Memphis Black Arts Alliance, and more. If you have a restless youngster who needs
time away from the television and internet this summer, check out these enriching options. For those of us without progeny, the list below offers plenty of options to keep us entertained. With art, theater, jazz, classical, and more, there is plenty to do. I want to draw particular attention to a massive art show and sale organized by the Woman’s Exchange on Racine. Since 1885 this organization has been empowering women, plus the lunch there is terrific! - Ken Hall

Summer is here, and 4Memphis restaurant partners fired up the grills and cast-iron skillets to create classic suppers for picnics, Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, or Fri-yay nights!
B L E U R E S TAU R A N T & LO U N G E
Fried Green Tomato Sandwich
2 slices fried green tomato 2 ounces pimento cheese 1 ounce onion jam 1 ounce Arcadian blend lettuce 1 brioche bun Pimento Cheese: 2 loaves cream cheese 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded ¼ cup garlic powder ¼ cup onion powder 5 roasted red peppers Paprika ½ quart heavy cream Salt and pepper to taste Put all in mixing bowl and mix until smooth.
SALUD! AT W H O L E F O O D S , P O P L A R AV E N U E
Day at the Ballpark Burger ¼ cup white or Vidalia onion, finely minced ½ teaspoon ground mustard ½ teaspoon coriander ½ teaspoon paprika 1/8 teaspoon mace 1/8 teaspoon white pepper ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon tomato paste 1 large egg white, beaten 1 pound ground pork ½ pound ground beef, 80/20 preferred
Pretzel buns, American cheese slices, yellow mustard, ketchup, lettuce, onion slices, pickle relish for serving In a large bowl, mix together the onion, spices, Worcestershire, tomato paste and egg white. Combine the ground meats with the spice mixture until well blended. Divide into 6, ¼ lb patties. Preheat a grill or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook the burgers until cooked through and a thermometer registers 155F internally, about 3-4 minutes per side. If desired, top with cheese during the last minute of cooking. Lightly toast the buns and assemble as desired with your favorite hot dog toppings. Burger Cooking Tip: Don’t press down on the burgers as they’re cooking, whether in a skillet or on the grill. You’ll be pressing out all of the juices from the meat and end up with a dried out burger. If the burgers are cooking too fast on the grill, simply move to a cooler section of the grill to continue cooking to desired doneness.

6 ounce bavette steak or sirloin 3 ounces fingerling potatoes 2 ounces arugula 10 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon black pepper 2 teaspoons kosher salt 2 sprigs thyme 1 bunch parsley 1 sprig rosemary 1 pound butter Steak Marinade: Mince 10 cloves of garlic, and reserve half for garlic herb butter. In a food processor, add salt and thyme, grind together after removing the stems; add to mixing bowl with extra virgin olive oil and pepper. Lightly coat the steak (not swimming in it). Put in refrigerator for 2 hours then quickly rinse the steak and pat dry. Rocket Salad: Toss arugula in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Fingerling Potatoes: Cut the fingerlings into quarters. Toss in bowl with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper - roast in oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Once done, toss your potatoes in more extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, herb mixture, and grated parmesan cheese. Garlic Herb Butter: Allow butter to come to room temperature so it is soft and easier to work with. Roast reserved garlic in a 400 degree oven with a little olive oil for about 10 minutes until light brown in color and soft. Using a standing mixer with a paddle attachment add butter, herb mix (parsley, thyme, rosemary), and garlic - mix together and refrigerate. Cooking the Steak: Get a cast iron skillet hot with olive oil. Add your steak to the pan, sear on both sides for 2 minutes then put into the oven at 400 degrees. Leave steak in the oven for no longer than 3-4 minutes. Take out of the oven and let rest for a few minutes. While steak is resting, put a big spoonful of the garlic herb butter on top of the steak so it can melt all over the steak and add more flavor, then slice and enjoy! JUNE 2019

Art by Design 2019 Photography by Sélavie Photography Story by Lesley Harris Colvett Art by Design melds the worlds of interior design + art + entertaining + dining + fashion, to benefit ArtsMemphis. Several uniquely themed soirees were held during the course of the weekend, offering guests a festive setting to socialize and take in the interior designers’ stunning vignettes.
A. Shaw Style This year’s Art by Design was nothing short of spectacular. As a participating designer, I had the privilege of working and showing alongside several other local talents, and sharing space with their energy all week long was truly a gift. Taking the time to focus on a hometown show is very valuable as it puts me in contact with lots of new faces and allows me to be totally creative in my space, which was a gentleman’s lounge with Art Deco influences.
A. Shaw Style Vignette featured at Art by Design
My booth was layered in different textures and colors for an overall cozy but refined experience. I started with tactile wall coverings. The main focus wall was covered in a wood veneer and set in a graphic pattern complemented by a metallic modern grasscloth on the other two walls. A 1940s sepia red bar with rose gold-mirrored front was centered on the wood veneer wall, and a non-representative painting from the 1970s hung above it along with a large-scale bronze Buddha head sculpture. A series of bone-carved medicine tusks were also on top of the bar.
The grass cloth walls were the perfect backdrops for art. I hung a grouping of red and black abstract faces on either side of enormous chrome and glass mirrors that were hand painted to resemble malachite. On the opposite grass cloth wall was a similar arrangement, but the abstract faces were black and blue. A pair of Hollywood Regency down-filled sofas anchored the space and a bronze ram’s head coffee table centered it. I had a pair of 1970s slipper chairs recovered in extravagant velvet that had really beautiful and interesting pattern play. The rug is a custom hide and shearling chevron that was produced for me in Argentina. Finally, the vignette was flanked by one of my prized possessions-my larger than life Senufo birds from the Ivory Coast made of a very dense teak wood and carved in a guardian mode of protection. The male and female pair welcomed everyone in to the booth and the lavish interior settled everyone in. The best part of my experience in Art by Design is not only sharing creative energy with all of the talented participants, but also seeing everyone who came through during the variety of events and “hosting” so many great people inside my unexpectedly designed space. This is a show that I hope to be a part of for many more years to come. -Anthony Shaw

FEATURED ARTIST: SOPHIA ROSS By: Laila Travillion
Sophia Ross is a senior and exceptionally gifted art student at White Station High School. At a young age Ross ﬁrst began to appreciate art after attending the Memphis College of art summer camps from elementary to high school. “I loved the process of creating and using my imagination, and I feel that these experiences continue to inﬂuence my art today.” As a local student artist Ross believes the city of Memphis to be a birthplace of opportunity and abundant resources such as the art classes offered at Memphis College of Art, the annual River Arts Fest, or the multitude of student art competitions that inspire her artistic growth. Ross primarily focuses on watercolor and admires the mediums unique ability to appear both “soft and sophisticated” while also introducing challenging ways to create her more intricate pieces. Her beautiful watercolor titled “You Can’t See Me” is one of her many complex pieces in which she ﬁnds commendable for its extreme detail and powerful sense of emotion. Among many other things, she ﬁnds inspiration in nature’s suspension of light and its creation of depth and value as well as the emotional response art can have on the viewer. “Without emotion or passion behind a piece of art, I feel as though its message has been lost. One of the most important goals when I begin a new work is that I convey the emotion that I set out to show. If I can do this, then I consider that piece a success. As an artist, you have the power to change the way people view a situation, to make a statement, to say something that has never been said. Sharing art is sharing your views on the world and that is so powerful. If you are given a gift like artistic ability, use it to spark some new idea or show a new perspective on a situation. Show your point of view and share what you know.”
Overtime, she has become inﬂuenced by the work of both Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth whose work derives from the precisionist era which combines strong line values, cubist abstraction, and an emphasis on architectural design. Ross resonates with the particular style for its précised structure yet peaceful qualities. In the future, Sophie aspires to become a landscape architect which merges her many passions including: urban planning, architecture, art, and design. “In this profession I hope to make impacts on the world that are greater than myself and truly make a change.” As of now, she is already setting out to achieve her dream in architecture and plans to attend Washington University in St. Louis to major in Communication Design as a step towards studying in Landscape Architecture. “I hope to apply my creativity in art to all I do throughout my life because it is part of who I am, and I am so grateful for that.”
