Letter From the Publisher Seek the Peace and Prosperity of the City in which I have placed you. Jeremiah 29:7 .‫ יִ ְהיֶ ה לָ כֶ ם ָשלֹום‬,‫לֹומּה‬ ָ ‫ כִ י ִב ְש‬:‫יְ הוָ ה‬-‫ ֶאל‬,‫ וְ ִה ְת ַפלְ לּו ַבעֲ ָדּה‬,‫ ֲא ֶשר ִהגְ לֵ ִיתי ֶא ְתכֶ ם ָש ָמה‬,‫שלֹום ָהעִ יר‬-‫ת‬ ְ ‫ז וְ ִד ְרׁשּו ֶא‬ ‫יִ ְר ְמיָ הּו‬

Grit and Grind Memphis Ecclesiastes 3:1–10 1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven: 2 A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3 …a time to tear down and a time to build, 4 a time to be weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate… 9 What does a worker gain from his toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on man. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. The first draft of this letter was written after the final game of the Memphis Grizzlies’ Playoff run. It is obvious to say that no Grizzlies fan was happy about losing game six to the Warriors, but I also don’t know a single Memphian who wasn’t proud and grateful for the efforts the entire team put into the 2014/2015 season. The end of the season gave us all a feeling of disappointment and pride, two emotions that aren’t normally experienced at the same time. I frequently go to the third chapter of Ecclesiastes during times of success or disappointments. In times of success it reminds me to appreciate the joy that the time of success brings. The passage also serves to keep one humble and to be grateful for the blessings you are enjoying, because it is a reminder that your circumstances can change, or it sharpens your awareness of others around you who are struggling with disappointment.

The passage may have its greatest benefit during times of disappointments because it offers the promise that the difficult time will be replaced by a more

favorable day. The end of the 2014/2105 season, after a period of rest, makes way for the 2015/2016 season and a team that is healthy and ready to play once again. I am writing the final draft of this letter from vacation. Memphis in May has come to a close, the long-awaited Bass Pro Shop at the Pyramid has opened, the school year has ended; the busyness of exams, graduation and closing ceremonies have been replaced with a moment to rest and begin summer vacation. It is a time to enjoy family and friends, a season that offers a break from our more traditional routine and responsibility. Solomon, the author of Ecclesiastes, in his opening line of Chapter One declares everything in life to be “Meaningless,” and in the first two chapters of Ecclesiastes, Solomon writes of all his accomplishments only to express his disappointments that the fame and riches did not bring him happiness. Solomon discovers that the secret to life is the ups and downs, thus giving life purpose and meaning with those God brings in and out of our lives. Solomon’s message from Ecclesiastes Chapter Three is a Grit and Grind message. He proclaims in verse 11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time,” and so it is with Memphis. We work together, we fight for respect, we cry with disappointment, we celebrate together, and in the end we work together to make what we have been given beautiful! . Seek the Peace and Prosperity of Memphis. Jim Walker

Best Buddies Tennessee Photography by Mark O. Ramirez The Party With A Purpose was the celebration at the end of an eight-week fundraising competition to benefit Best Buddies Tennessee.

More about Best Buddies Individuals (children and adults) with intellectual and developmental disabilities often have great difficulty in making friends, leading to a life of loneliness and isolation. Best Buddies alters that path by serving as a lifeline of joy and fulfillment through one-on-one friendships with their non-disabled peers. The friendships sometimes give first-time experiences with a friend like going to the movies and celebrating a birthday, or improving communication skills, securing a successful job, or learning to ride a bike. The impact is undeniable. Best Buddies is shaping our communities, changing attitudes, and creating a powerful movement toward the acceptance and inclusion of those with differences.

DIVORCE THE RICES WROTE THE BOOK. They really did. Larry Rice and Nick Rice are co-authors of The Complete Guide to Divorce Practice. Published by the American Bar Association, the book is recognized as the standard reference for divorce lawyers across the nation. The 25th anniversary edition documents over 900 pages of their insight, experience and techniques. The National Academy of Family Law Attorneys recognized Larry as a Nationally Ranked Top 10 Attorney and Nick as a Nationally Ranked Top 10 Under 40 Attorney. They were both recognized as The Face of Divorce Law in the Mid-South by Memphis Magazine and are both rated Superb and 10 out of 10 by Avvo.com. Lawyers seek out Larry’s expertise. He has given over 200 lectures on divorce practice to lawyers nationally and internationally. As the only Super Lawyer in Memphis certified as a Family Law Specialist, Larry spends most of his time practicing law with the Rice Divorce Team. A third generation lawyer, Nick Rice grew up with the law. After graduating from CBHS and UT-Knoxville, Nick clerked in the family firm while attending The University of Memphis Law School. Nick has lectured on several occasions and was recognized as a Super Lawyer Rising Star. The Rice Divorce Team is a practice group within Rice, Amundsen & Caperton, PLLC, a firm which was selected as the Best Law Firm by The Commercial Appeal.

Hundreds of lawyers reviewed, contributed to and helped refine the Rice Divorce Practice System. The depth of The Rice Divorce Team’s personnel provides the ability to tailor representation to each client’s individual needs and goals. While the team is proud of courtroom success, their greatest satisfaction often comes from obtaining a quiet settlement favorable to their client. Divorce is difficult.

A Step Ahead Foundation By Stephanie Beliles, Photography courtesy of A Step Ahead Foundation

Claudia Haltom served as a juvenile court judge for 17 years. During her tenure, it was her job to take children away from their parents and put them in state custody. “Removing kids from their parents was the hardest job I have ever done. But over and over, I saw families that had mothers that wanted to be good mothers, but they were drowning.” These women, according to Claudia, were being overwhelmed by having children too early or not spacing their pregnancies out. “I would ask these women what their plans more children were, and most young women would reply, ‘Well I am on the pill.’ Then I would ask, ‘Have you taken it this morning?’ in 17 years, not one woman answered ‘yes’ to that question.” These women were not usually shunning responsibility; many had just lost benefits or had been put out of her apartment. “If she was in front of me, it was not a good day for her. But when you have an unexpected pregnancy, no matter your socioeconomic standing, your entire life changes, and very often not for the better.”

42 / 4Memphis

In addition to her time as a judge, Claudia served as attorney for the Shelby County Health Department. She visited the family clinics and discovered that the most effective methods of birth control are the long acting reversible methods like an IUD (intrauterine device). There is a ten year IUD that is made of copper and contains no hormones, a 5 year IUD with light hormones, and there is an implant that is a straw implanted into the arm. These “get it and forget it” methods have a less than one percent failure rate. However, these were not available in free clinics, and it was difficult for young women without private doctors or insurance to get them. “These methods are great for girls headed off to college who can barely remember to brush their teeth during exams, or for new mothers who are sleep deprived and have irregular schedules,” notes Claudia. The realization that these methods could mean salvation for young women prompted Claudia to come out of retirement and start A Step Ahead Foundation. Founded and chartered in 2011, A Step Ahead Foundation (ASAF) offers women of Memphis and Shelby County free long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), which are the most effective reversible methods of birth control. ASAF now has 19 partner clinics, and the process is refreshingly simple for young women. First, she calls the 24/7 hotline 901-320-STEP and speaks to a female operator who asks only her zip code. Next, the operator assists in making an appointment (which is usually within two weeks) for her to her closest clinic that offers LARCs. Finally, A Step Ahead will send a free cab to take the woman to and from her appointment. No insurance is necessary. The clinics are reimbursed by ASAF, and there is no charge to the young lady. They do not offer any sterilization, but they offer free and anonymous assistance in helping young women take control of their futures. Finally, down the road, when the young lady decides to start a family and have her IUD removed, The Step Ahead Foundation covers those costs, too. The organization is headed to the Crosstown building soon, and will be right next to The Church Health Center. Their target audience is teenagers, and their programming provides outlined information on how to grow into the young woman they desire to be. In 2012-2013, A Step Ahead Foundation assisted 1, 238 women in birth control procedures. However, in Shelby County’s 38127 (Frayser) zip code alone, there were 921 births in 2012. The majority of women (73%) for whom ASAF was the payer of

birth control method had been pregnant at least once before the procedure. When asked, it is rare that a young woman will answer “I want to be a teenage mother” when inquiring about their future plans. However, many young ladies neglect considering their “life plan” when engaging in sexual activity. A Step Ahead Foundation, at its core, wants to give young women their opportunity to achieve their dreams. Belinda Simpson, Director of Community Outreach at ASAF, has gone so far as to make a questionnaire for women about their life plans, asking questions like “Where do you want to live?” and “How much money would you like to make?” and on to “When do you want to have kids?” and “What would be difficult to do if you become a parent?” and finally “What would happen to your plan if you found out you were pregnant tomorrow?” Reminding young women of their dreams and how little room for an unplanned pregnancy there is in those plans can offer as a big realization for them. ASAF volunteers pass out flyers and hits the street at places like the welfare offices, Department of Human Services, and child support offices. Belinda note, “The women that are just sitting there gives us a good opportunity to approach them and as, ‘Do you know anyone who could use free birth control?’” A Step Ahead Foundation also has an event they call Girl Talks: an event at community centers and after-school facilities that encourages women to start planning their lives while equipping them with information that they may need to be child-free until they are ready for children. They educate women on healthy relationships, abstinence, and pursing their education. ASAF is always seeking volunteers to help with their Girl Talks and other programming; however, their biggest need is more young women taking charge of their future by taking advantage of their services. Helping each young lady outline her goals is the first step in creating a healthy and happier home in the Mid-South. “We always tell them,” says Claudia, “that at the end of the day, at some point in your life, we hope you get married to Mr. Wonderful, and planning for your children will help you both have a more successful life.” For their services and dedication to the young women of Memphis, A Step Ahead Foundation is the recipient of this month’s Memphis Love Challenge. You can learn more about The Step Ahead Foundation and how you can help at AStepAheadFoundation.org.

Faces of the Street Street Ministries Photography by Mark O. Ramirez On April 23rd, Streets Ministries held a surprise tribute at Bridges to honor founder Ken Bennett. Ken started Streets 28 years ago with the personal calling to love the children of the Foote and Cleaborn Homes area of Memphis. Ken and the audience were treated to stories of the early days for the ministry. These stories were told by adults who were once living on these streets of these economically struggling areas and were able to break the cycle of economic and spiritual poverty. In addition to the children’s stories, several of Street Ministries’ original Board Members shared Ken’s early passion for this seemingly impossible task that led them to join him in creating Streets Ministry. The audience celebrated the Bennett family’s heart and trust of God that has resulted in a Ministry that operates two neighbor facilities and are making a difference in the lives of thousands of Memphis’s children.

Tribute Time


Blues Hall of Fame by Sandi Butler Hughes Photography by Lisa Mac / Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau


t’s been 35 years in the dreaming. When the Blues Foundation was formed in 1980, a Blues Hall of Fame was on the wish-list for the international organization headquartered in Memphis. With dedication, fundraising, and the leadership of CEO Jay Sieleman, the project was brought to brick and mortar fruition. On May 8th, the Blues Hall of Fame opened their doors to the genre’s faithful fans and filled a gaping void in Memphis’ cultural tourism offerings.

June 2015 / 53

Little Milton Statue Dedication The Blues Hall of Fame (BHOF) differs from a museum in the telling of the blues story. The BHOF focuses on the people who influenced the blues and is a retrospective of the artists, producers, djs, and others who have made blues music history. Only one week after the grand opening, the blues community lost their king with the passing of B.B. King. With this loss of the venerable blues guitarist, the long-anticipated opening of the Blues Hall of Fame is even more significant because in the Home of the Blues, we now have a facility to celebrate the men and women who shaped American music history. Built directly across the street from the National Civil Rights Museum, there could not be a more ideal location for the BHOF. The African-Americans who were at the epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement created the blues music, and of the 130 Hall of Famers who are performers, 120 of them are AfricanAmerican. The National Civil Rights Museum and the BHOF seem to be harmonizing on South Main to tell the stories of the blues and African-American people.

with vinyl record designs along with a bronze statue of Little Milton sitting on a bench. This attention to detail that greets visitors is carried throughout the new space.

The newly renovated space is a beautiful and artful addition to the South Main Arts District. The street-level floor of the building was transformed into an open, light-filled, multi-function space. The Blues Foundation offices line the back wall, accessed by a frosted glass catwalk. A large gallery exhibit space begins the Hall of Fame experience. No, that is not entirely true. The experience begins out front with a blue tinted sidewalk, etched

The blues style of music may be rooted in the Southern states, but it has spread around the globe and inspired countless musicians in rock, soul, r&b, and funk music. With the opening of the Blues Hall of Fame, these legendary inductees are honored, and their blues music is preserved for the next generation.

The gallery is sponsored by the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, and the inaugural exhibit is a display of Dick Waterman portrait and concert photography. The Oxford, Mississippi, resident is a renowned photographer and himself an inductee in the BHOF. Exhibits in the gallery are free and will rotate twice per year with blues-themed original artwork. A wide stairway descends to the Blues Hall of Fame exhibit area. Personal memorabilia and artifacts are displayed in sleek cases, and range from W.C. Handy hand-written lyric sheets to an Otis Spann electric piano to a KoKo Taylor sequined stage costume. Technology is a vital part of the exhibits, too, with interactive components that at the touch of a button play songs, recordings, and interviews of the hall of famers.

Photography by James Wessels | Blurred Image Photography Little Milton, a blues musician from Inverness, Mississippi, is memorialized with a bronze statue in front of the Blues Hall of Fame. Pat Campbell, Little Milton’s widow, was at the unveiling and very moved at the beautiful tribute to her mate of over 40 years. “Every time I come see it, it takes my breath away,” she said. The statue was inspired by Little Milton’s last studio album entitled “Think of Me.” The cover photo features Little Milton sitting on a bench in Tom Lee Park, holding his Gibson guitar, gazing over the Mississippi River. The statue was sculpted by Andrea Holmes Lugar and cast at Lugar Foundry. The bench, where the Little Milton statue sits and gazes over South Main, has plenty of room to share with BHOF visitors. The legs of the bench are in the shape of gar fish and were crafted at the National Ornamental Metal Museum. Little Milton said it best: “Hey, hey the blues is alright.”

Third Annual Wesberry Golf Classic Photography by Courtney Howard

The Third Annual Wesberry Golf Classic was held at Spring Creek Ranch on April 20 benefitting SRVS and more than 1,000 people with disabilities. The event grossed more than $39,000 in support of SRVS’ programs, ranging from employment and community living, to children’s services and elder care. SRVS is the largest comprehensive service provider in Tennessee and one of the largest private employers in Memphis with more than 900 employees.




The golf tournament was comprised of a 4-person scramble and 23 teams participated. Anne Wesberry welcomed the golfers as they headed out to the exclusive golf course in Collierville, Tennessee. The tournament is named in memory of her husband, Dr. Fred Wesberry, who was a long-time supporter of SRVS and who treated persons supported at SRVS through his dental practice.

35,000 Feet High & Still Rockin’ by Stephanie Beliles | Photography by Dirk Mai


n a mashup marketing effort involving Tennessee Department of Tourist Development, Southwest Airlines and band The Black Cadillacs, a plane full of a few journalists and the otherwise unsuspecting passengers found ourselves 35,000 feet in the air, adult beverages in hand, and listening to a live acoustic five-piece performance. A lucky few experienced what is known as #Liveat35 series, this one happening during the new Southwest Airlines route between Dallas and Memphis. What is seemingly a clouded correlation, Southwest Airlines, TDTD and The Black Cadillacs nailed a modern way of conveying a long-standing message: Memphis has deep-rooted cultural relevance.

4Memphis and Spin Magazine were invited on Southwest Airlines flight 3664 from Dallas headed to Memphis. The non-media passengers were unaware that rising act The Black Cadillacs would be performing an acoustic version of their song “Fracture”: a song written in and about Memphis. The band’s original three members include Memphians Will Horton, Matthew Hyrka and Philip Anderson, and they later added Guitarist John Phillips and drummer Adam Bonomo to the group when they moved to Knoxville to attend the University of Tennessee. So when the band found themselves in a creative funk and desperate to write a new song, they hoofed it to Memphis to find inspiration, and they instantly experienced what thousands of other musicians before them felt, collectively agreeing, “People talk about roots of music, but this [Memphis] is really it, stripped down.” The Black Cadillacs reveled in full-tilt Memphis excursions, including local haunts Gus’ Fried Chicken, Kozy Korner, Goner Records, Beale Street and St. Blues Guitar, just to name a few. The guys had a tour of Sun Studios, with Will Horton gushing, “I’m standing in a room where Elvis stood and recorded. It’ll give you chills.” Their appreciation of Memphis as a musically and culturally significant destination only heightened when the band visited Stax Museum, or “Soulsville, USA.” The guys, like other music aficionados around the globe, did not realize that Memphis held greats like Al Green and Otis Redding: two of dozens of the soul and R&B superstars represented in the space. And no one can visit Memphis without a trip down to Graceland, where guitarist John Phillips enthused about Elvis’ longevity and longstanding relevance even today in the world-music landscape. 84 / 4Memphis

The Black Cadillacs took their inspiration and mixed magic at Ardent Studio. “Fracture” is a single inspired and reflective of Memphis, with hints of Elvis-inspired rock-a-billy, soulful harmonizing, and down-home grit. On the heels of exciting city revitalization, a new mega Bass Pro Shop opening its doors, and commercial airline Southwest Airlines stretching its legs in Memphis, the agency VML saw an opportunity to merge two of their clients’ initiatives into one marketing adventure worthy of an encore. VML represents TDTD as well as Southwest Airlines, and when SW announced their newest leg from Dallas to Memphis, VML saw the chance to incorporate some Memphis-inspired indie-rock as more than a just background music. That is how #Liveat35 with The Black Cadillacs and the documentary Last Song to Memphis was born, and you can watch the video at tnvacation.com/last-songmemphis. Taking their new single “Fracture” up 35,000 feet in a plane and performing to unsuspecting and otherwise unsubscribing listeners was a gamble that paid out for TDTD, Southwest Airlines and The Black Cadillacs. The band landed to a huge round of applause, and then wrapped at a packed-out show at BB Kings on Beale. Sadly, BB King was not on hand to hear how the boys were inspired by a city in which he found so much musical inspiration. In fact, BB King passed away a few weeks later and was mourned not only by Memphis, but by The Black Cadillacs as well. The band collectively stated that Memphis lost another legend, but his legacy along with all the musical birthright Memphis deserves will continue to live and inspire for decades to come.
