The Rices wrote the book on divorce. Literally. The Complete Guide to Divorce Practice is published by the American Bar Association and is recognized as the standard reference for divorce lawyers across the nation for decades. For the 30th Anniversary Edition, the Rices co-author their book with over a thousand pages of insight, experience, and techniques. Lawyers seek out Larry’s expertise and he has lectured on divorce in most states and in some foreign countries. As the only Super Lawyer in the Mid-South certified as a Family Law Specialist, Larry Rice spends most of his time practicing law with the Rice Divorce Team. Thomson Reuters repeatedly ranks Mr. Rice as one of the top 100 lawyers in all fields of law in Tennessee. Larry received The National Academy of Family Attorneys Top Ten Attorney Client Satisfaction Award and is rated on AVVO as 10 out of 10. Nick Rice grew up with the law. After graduating from CBHS and UT-Knoxville, Nick clerked while attending The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. Nick has lectured on several occasions and was recognized as one of Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars. Nick is rated on AVVO as 10 out of 10. He is a Rule 31 Family Law Mediator. The Rice Divorce Team is a practice group within Rice, Amundsen & Caperton, PLLC. The Rice Divorce Team is exclusively committed to family law - from prenuptial agreements to final decrees, from parenting time to property division and everything in between, and it includes: Larry Rice; Nick Rice; Erin O’Dea; Jessica Farmer Ferrante; Chelsea Knox; Faith Sanford; Christopher Burt; Jennifer Goodin; Andrea Schultz, ACP; Susan New, ACP; Tyler Walker; Cyndy McAfee; Lisa Blackledge; Krista Burt; Ken Schultz; Linsey Boatner; C.J. Parrish; Irris Williams and Blake Alford. The team applies generations of legal experience, nationally recognized expertise, and up-to-date technology to lead their clients through negotiations, mediation, arbitration or litigation. 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 quick and quiet settlement favorable to their client. Divorce is difficult. Divorce is made worse by misinformation people have about divorce. The Rices’ guide for clients, “About Divorce”, is available at aboutdivorce.com.

JEREMIAH 29:7

D

o not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2

For those of us blessed to live in areas where we have seasonal change, the concept of renewal happens at least twice a year when we leave Winter and enter Spring. The end of Summer means a return to a regular schedule, our children returning to school, giving them the opportunity to start fresh in their new classes. The concept of renewal is not something we often look forward to because it often means the need for change because of a deteriorating situation or recent loss. It may come out of an internal or physical struggle, more often than not the situations that require renewal are out of our control. I was recently celebrating with a friend of mine - his recovery from a bone marrow transplant that cured his Leukemia. He was laughing about his recent fishing trip where he had been eaten up by mosquitoes. You see, he had never reacted to mosquito bites before his transplant, but with the donor’s healthy bone marrow came the donor’s sensitivity to mosquito bites. Clearly, it was a humorous and small price to pay for his health. Renewal in this case was a tremendous blessing, allowing him to overcome a physical struggle that would have cost him his life without the successful bone marrow transplant. If one does a case study on business entrepreneurship, you would find some of the most successful companies were started by a loss of a job or a failure of a company. The need for an individual to start over again may lead to opportunities they would never have considered if life hadn’t forced them into renewal. Recently, Kroger announced that they were discontinuing across the region the service of providing rack space for local community publications to distribute their magazines. Forty percent of 4Memphis’ distribution has been through these public racks in a neighborhood store. The news of Kroger’s decision came at quite a surprise, but like all setbacks it

forced us to implement a new plan. Our most popular spots have been in locations that regularly serve our target market, such as High Point Grocery, Superlo Foods, and Gibson’s Donuts. After all, Gibson’s one of Memphis’ most cherished businesses. We distribute more magazines at Gibson’s than any other location by a factor of four. Who doesn’t enjoy standing in line on Saturday or Sunday morning to get a box or two of Gibson’s famous donuts? Gibson’s is only one of many examples of the direct-to-consumer distribution outlets that allow 4Memphis to reach its target market to share with Memphis the good works of our not-for-profit sector, while supporting our local businesses through advertising in the pages of 4Memphis. 4Memphis is in the business of supporting our community, both the tremendous not-for-profit sector and the locallyowned business. The lifeblood of Memphis is the Poplar corridor that starts at the Mississippi River and ends in Collierville where Poplar and the 385-loop cross. We are in the process of placing 100 re-designed racks along this corridor, concentrating our efforts to deliver the message of the great works of Memphis’ not-for-profit organizations to those in our city that can most help them financially. Renewal, the opportunity to transform our business model by improving our reach to the community we serve; 4Memphis and its advertisers will be better off because of it. Romans 12:2 is calling its readers to leave their old ways of thinking and acting, by changing how they think and view the world and their place in it. Sometimes renewal in our lives can be extremely painful and other times pure joy because of the opportunities it creates, may all of us who live in Memphis look for ways to work toward the renewal of Memphis. Seek the Peace and Prosperity of Memphis. Jim Walker

When women support each other, incredible things happen. the average woman earns only

$.82

for every dollar the average man grosses

When women support each other, the world is her oyster; truly anything is possible. That is why Memphis Girl Scouts created the Stand Beside Her Movement to encourage women and girls to sing each other’s praises, to be each other’s best source of support and to be the ones who change the culture of comparison and competition among females. Comparison and competition formed on the playground often carries over to the boardroom and in the home, preventing women from reaching their fullest potential. When we waste valuable energy comparing ourselves to others, we miss the opportunity for growth in our own lives. Let’s create a world where all women and girls are appreciated for their talent, strengths and uniqueness.

Join us and Stand Beside Her.

The Palmer Home for Children leadership announced a lead gift from Kirby and Glenn Floyd at this year’s Shotguns and Sunflowers annual fundraising event, and the gift launches a $7 million capital campaign to build the Dr. Hugh Francis, Jr. Wellness Center in Hernando, Mississippi.

Melissa Huffman & Emily Hutton

The 24,000-square-foot structure will be a central gathering place for children, houseparents, counselors, and staff located in the heart of the residential campus. The Wellness Center will house an academic suite, counseling suite, administrative suite, a full-court gymnasium, 4,800-square-foot pool, and The Gathering Place, a large multi-purpose room with an industrialsized kitchen.

“We took the time to evaluate the needs of the children in our care, and we created a specific design that would provide for their restoration and personal development,” said Drake Bassett, CEO & President. “The Wellness Center will be a trauma-responsive space that is designed to encourage physical and emotional healing, as well as educational and spiritual growth.”

Paul & Stephanie Stephens

The Wellness Center will be named in honor of Dr. Hugh Francis, Jr. who faithfully served the children at Palmer Home as a board member for more than 50 years. This building will be a tribute to Dr. Francis’s commitment to the mission of Palmer Home.

“We are incredibly grateful to the generous individuals, businesses, foundations, and churches that have already come on board to support this effort,” said Robert Farris, Vice President of Expansion at Palmer Home. “We invite every member of the Palmer Home family to help us complete our goal by contributing at any level.”

100 Women Who Care Meeting

The 100 Women Who Care meeting was recently held and sponsored by Hollie Winter Fine Jewelry. The “giving circle” awards a donation to a local non-profit. The recipient of the $12,000 donation raised was Memphis Inner City Rugby. MICR was founded by teachers and is led by coaches. Their goal is to leverage rugby as an engagement tool. They believe experience-based learning is largely missing from our modern education pedagogy and is one of the most powerful ways we can invest our kids in the pursuit of brighter futures. Congrats to MICR and thanks to 100 Women Who Care for making Memphis better!

The Orpheum Soiree: A Whimsical Night Inspired by Willy Wonka By Sandi Butler Hughes

When Charlie found a Golden Ticket in the classic tale Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he is transported into the fanciful world of Willy Wonka. Guests at this year’s annual Orpheum Soiree will experience a magical evening of delectable dishes, specialty cocktails, and fantastical fun on Friday, November 15. The 2019-20 Broadway series is bringing the stage production of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to the Orpheum Theatre (January 14-19, 2020). The story is a favorite, and a whimsical theme is ideal for the annual fundraising event. The proceeds from the evening benefit the Orpheum Theatre Group’s education and community programs serving 40,000 students, teachers, and families annually. “This year’s Soiree, inspired by our presentation of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, promises to be one of the most fun events the Orpheum has ever hosted,” said Brett Batterson, President and CEO of the Orpheum Theatre Group. “As a nonprofit cultural institution, events like the Soiree ensure that we can continue to expand our education programming – providing transformative access to the arts to the students, teachers and families of the Mid-South,” he continued. Sponsors for this year’s Soiree include First Tennessee, Greenway Home Services, UBS, and Horseshoe Tunica. Much like the Orpheum, the team at Horseshoe are pros in the art of presentation and entertainment. They will be transforming the historic theatre into the “world of pure imagination,” as Willy Wonka says. “The transformation of the Orpheum will be around color and whimsy,” said Ricky Busey, Vice President of Human Resources & Business Development with Caesars Entertainment. “I would not expect Oompa Loompas to be floating in the air from too much bubble gum, but you can expect to see bright colors, fun images, and a feeling of being transported on your own golden ticket experience.” Ryan Trimm is a local restaurateur extraordinaire and part of a team of culinary partners participating in the event. “The Orpheum team always puts on a great party every year. It's not every night you get to get dressed up and enjoy a night on the stage. The auction items are top notch, the ambience is uplifting and dare I say the food is fantastic,” Ryan said. He explains that he had always had a certain affinity for art and theatre, and was always surrounded by music, art books, museum trips, musicals and plays at a young age. “I can thank my parents for that. It scares me to think that some youth have few opportunities to engage with these same experiences. Therefore, it is important we help support the great cornerstones of art we have in Memphis,” he shared. “Obviously, the Orpheum is a major part of this culture.” Ricky also supports the Orpheum because of the importance it has for the city. “I am involved for two reasons. The first is as a board member I want to be engaged, the larger reason is that I understand the importance of the Orpheum Theatre Group in our community. The arts and arts education are a must for our community to continue to grow and build the diversity and education we need to advance,” he said. He shared that his support is rooted in his family life. “The Orpheum Theatre Group has been of huge importance to my family. My son grew his interest in theatre while attending summer camps and master programs as far back as 2005. He is now a professional actor and dancer living his dream in New York City,” Ricky said. Bring your imagination and dancing shoes for this very sweet annual fundraiser, and be ready for an evening inspired by The Candy Man. “The theme of the Soiree is based on Willy Wonka, and you can expect to see ‘wonky’ treats. Food that is reinvented to be elegant and delicious with a whimsical and inventive twist,” Ricky hinted. To get your Golden Ticket to the Orpheum Soiree, visit orpheum-memphis.com.

The Candy Man’s Chocolate Martini 2 tablespoons chocolate powder 2 tablespoons chocolate sprinkles (Willy might prefer rainbow sprinkles!) 4 ounces Baileys Irish Cream 4 ounces chocolate liqueur, plus 2 tablespoons 4 ounces vanilla vodka Chill two martini glasses. Pour 2 tablespoons chocolate liqueur onto a shallow plate; chocolate powder onto another shallow plate, and sprinkles onto another. Dip glass into liqueur, then powder, then sprinkles. (Chocolate syrup is also an option, then drizzle the inside of each glass with syrup.) Combine Baileys, liqueur, and vodka in a large cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake until chilled and thoroughly mixed. Top with shaved chocolate, or garnish with whipped cream, chocolate candies, or whatever your heart desires! Pour and enjoy!

We think of October as the season of festivals, arts events, and football weather. Some of the most beloved annual events will definitely return – from art on the river to art on fire. Plus intriguing new ones – poetry about shipping containers and paintings by Kelly English – Memphis never lacks for innovative expression and smart new ideas. Paint Memphis returns with 100 or so street artists in a day-long marathon of creativity, and Mozart will tiptoe through the grounds which hosted tulips in the spring. If you have a favorite arts activity, make an effort to try another as well. Opera people should take in a gallery showing, instrumental music fans might try a lecture, and so on – we’re all in this together. Let’s support the people and organizations that collectively raise the quality of life in the Memphis area. - Ken Hall

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine pecans, sugar, butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Let cool completely.


#CULINARY ITTA BENA Pumpkin Crème Brulee Pie 1 quart heavy cream 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped 1 cup vanilla sugar, divided 6 large egg yolks 1 tablespoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 2-3 tablespoons pumpkin puree 2 quarts hot water Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the cream, vanilla bean and its pulp into a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Remove the vanilla bean and reserve for another use. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and egg yolks until well blended, and it just starts to lighten in color. Add the cream a little at a time, stirring continually. Pour the liquid into a pie crust or 6 (7 to 8-ounce) ramekins. Place the ramekins into a large cake pan or roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake just until the crème brulee is set, but still trembling in the center. Remove from oven and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days. Remove the crème brulee from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to browning the sugar on top. Spread vanilla sugar evenly on top of pie or ramekins. Using a torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top. Allow the crème brulee to sit for at least 5 minutes before serving.

The Container Store The Ultimate in Organization Story by Lesley Harris Colvett Photography by McKendree Walker

W

e could hardly contain our excitement last year when we heard that The Container Store, the nation’s leading retailer of storage and organization products, was coming to the Memphis area, and it has now opened in Germantown! This beautiful, new store is the second Container Store in Tennessee, and features a modern design incorporating elements from the flagship Dallas Next Generation Store. The Container Store features thousands of multi-functional and innovative storage and organization products designed to help customers maximize space and make the most of their home. Katie Savage and Brooke Levy have been fans of The Container Store as they have been using Container Store products for their Memphisbased home improvement / custom organizing business Blue Pencil Home. Blue Pencil Home is officially part of the company’s Contained Home program, which means they will provide a wide variety of inhome services ranging from designing comprehensive organization perfectly suited for their client’s homes. Previously, Katie and Brooke either ordered Container Store products online or had to drive to Little Rock or Nashville to stock up on items, so they are very excited to have a local Container Store. We enjoyed a morning shopping with Katie and Brooke, as they shared the “ins and outs” of their favorite Container Store products and how to use them. CLOSETS: Closets are a breeze to organize thanks to the custom, built-in closets that are cut and made specifically for the customer. A highlight of the store is The Container Store Custom Closets, encompassing Elfa Classic®, the retailer’s best-selling product and premier shelving and drawer system, Elfa Decor®, their newest line Avera®, and Laren®, an upscale line of luxurious custom-built closets. “We are so excited to be working with The Container Store to create custom closets. It’s been a great need for our clients, and we are happy to have a solution to fit a wide range of needs. These closets are not only completely customizable, but they are the highest quality products you will find on the market,” Katie and Brooke said. Katie and Brooke also recommend the jewelry stackers from the Container Store as a must have for closet organization. STORAGE BINS: Katie and Brooke recommend the Yamazaki Tosca Basket with 82

wooden handles for the pantry to store and organize in a stylish way. Katie and Brooke say they love them because along with being stylish, they’re sturdy and easily allow you to see what is in the baskets (which is great for kids reaching for snacks), and they have felt on the bottom so they don’t scratch any surfaces. See-through storage bins are great for putting crafts since you can easily see what is in them Add a bin clip, which is sold at Container Store as well, and label it with chalk or a sharpie pen to put on the outside of any basket to complete your pantry / playroom organization MAKEUP AND BEAUTY PRODUCTS: Brooke and Katie say they get a lot of questions about how to organize makeup and beauty products, and one of their favorite ways to store makeup is by using the Luxe acrylic 7-section divided palette insert which fits well in most deep drawers and easily displays each item, and the InterDesign Clarity Cosmetics & Vanity Organizer - which takes advantage of vertical space on a counter, vanity or shelf. GARAGES: Katie and Brooke say that garages can be a tricky area to keep organized, mainly because of the amounts of items we tend to toss items such as sports gear tools and gardening supplies not knowing how or where to store them. They say it’s important to take advantage of all the vertical space you can with the Elfa Utility Track. You can install the track to the garage wall and customize it to your specific needs, and use different Elfa add-ons ranging from tool holders and bike racks to utility boxes and shelving.

LORI JAMES Shopping

Party

By: Ella Trotz

This year 4Memphis Impact had its fashion party at Lori James, a contemporary women’s boutique located in Laurelwood Shopping Center. The store is owned by Memphis native, Lori James. Lori has been in retail for over 35 years, starting out as a stylist before beginning her store in 2012. The store’s broad inventory attracts women from all ages and their favorite trends for this fall are chain jewelry, python prints, and velvet textures. Lori James prides herself on carrying more novelty pieces rather than just the “basics”. As customers entered the store for the shopping party, they were greeted by the friendly staff, Lori, and her dog Sugar. At the front of the store there were cookies from Black Eyed Sue Bakery with the Lori James and 4 Memphis Impact logos. While customers browsed the store, they were given the opportunity to enter a raffle for prizes from Eden Spa and Fox Ridge Pizza. The fashion party was a huge success and the Impact staff looks forward to working with Lori James again in the future! Special thanks to all who attended, and Lori James for having us!

Lori helped the staff put together these amazing gameday looks!

COOPER-YOUNG FESTIVAL By: Morgen Crosby

Cooper-Young is one of Memphis’s most historic and dynamic neighborhoods. Century-old homes surrounded by small businesses line Cooper Street from its iconic overpass to just beyond Young Avenue. The creative Midtown atmosphere offers a warm welcoming to any visitors. Every year, a gathering called the Cooper-Young Festival shares the music, art, and crafts of the many talents within the community. There are also many vendors selling clothes, jewelry, food, and vintage items. This festival is an event for all ages. Adults can stroll the streets shopping and listening to the music, and there is an area for kids to jump on bouncy houses and look at fun crafts. Thousands of people come to the festival to celebrate the Memphis culture and artistic tradition. Entering its 32nd year, the 2019 Cooper-Young Festival will be held on Saturday, September 14th from 9 am to 7 pm. Come to the festival and enjoy the neighborhood, people, and talent at one of Memphis’s most unique outdoor celebrations. A large crowd shows the major turnout for Cooper-Young Festival each year.

MUS VS. CBHS RIVALRY

By: Robert Ayotte Memphis is a city marked by its rivalries — the never-ending question of which restaurant has the best barbecue, or the yearly squabble that emerges whenever the Ole Miss football team makes its way up to the Liberty Bowl. But one of the city’s most intense — and often overlooked — rivalry exists right on the high school level. I went out to dinner last month at Bhan Thai in Midtown. I had subconsciously put on one of my many MUS shirts like I typically do on any other innocent Saturday. Unbeknownst to me, however, this specific one happened to have a massive “BEAT CBHS” on the back in glowing red and blue colors. Coincidentally, it also happened to be just a few days after the MUS-CBHS football game. Immediately upon sitting at the table, I heard a loud “We’ll get you next year!” from my right. In my oblivious state, I ignored the taunt in the assumption that it was not directed towards me. “We’ll get you next year!!!” I turned around to see a family of four — the father, who was the source of the jab, smiling alongside his son, who is a current sophomore at Christian Brothers. The first week of September brought together two teams that have shared a historic rivalry within the Memphis community for over a century. Normally, MUS and Christian Brothers meet towards the end of October, but the Brothers traveled to MUS’s Stokes Stadium in week three this year, marking the region opener for both teams. The MUS Owls ended up walking away with the victory, 37-24, after having jumped to a quick lead early in the first half. A standout performer included the Owls’s receiver Gavin McKay, who took in two touchdowns with one being a spectacular one-handed grab. With the win, MUS will hold onto the Rivalry Cup, a trophy that documents and celebrates the long-lasting competition between the two schools. It is awarded to the school that beats the other in football, and remains in their possession until next year’s matchup. The rivalry between the two neighboring schools dates all the way back to 1894, when the Owls first beat the Brothers 20-0. The current record between the two is 28-26-3, with MUS tightly grasping the lead. While this relationship is often very intense — especially on gameday — the competitive nature that exists among the students and alumni has continued to foster a healthy camaraderie within the Greater Memphis community. Bobby Alston, MUS’s head coach, describes the rivalry as “healthy competition.” “The graduates of these two schools have in the past, continue in the present, and will be expected in the future to work together for the betterment of our city,” he said. “Seeing rivals come together to work for the common good is a good message to promote for other rivalries that exist.” The relationship among these two institutions is a unifying force in Memphis, brining together different people that would have no relation to each other otherwise. The lesson that I learned at Bhan Thai is that this camaraderie extends far beyond the confines of a football field, and will continue to enhance the relationships between Memphians for decades to come. And that I need to be more conscious about what I wear.

The teams shake hands after a very tough football game.

GIVE, PRAY, SERVE By: Anna Rose Thomas

The GPS Squad is a partnership with the Salvation Army location on Jackson Avenue. It stands for “Give, Pray, and Serve,” and aims to alleviate some of the stress of every day life among those living at this location. It’s a great opportunity for service that families can do together. They have a lot of events including putting together backpacks and school supplies for kids in the summer and making sure families have presents to give their kids for Christmas. The most common service events are the family fun afternoons put on by the squad on certain Sundays of the year. We do everything from pass the football to bingo to arts and crafts. The Salvation Army location functions as a women’s shelter of sorts where women with no real home can go and live for two years before they get back on their feet. They go through classes for financial literacy and other topics to help them thrive after they leave the community. While they live there, their kids are also provided for and given a great education in local schools along with tutors and teacher to help them after school. This past Sunday, I went to help with a family fun afternoon. Because it was the first event to see the kids since last year, I was able to see how all my friends I had made last year had grown up. We made crosses out of beads and listened to music as we all caught up. Another fun activity we did was chalk drawing. No matter how old they are, all the girls at the center love drawing with chalk and because of the regularity in which they do it, they are all amazing artists. I’m so impressed whenever we draw because even the young girls can bring their works to life. This program is so fun for everyone involved. The kids love it because they can play after a long day of school, the moms love it because they can relax and hang out while we watch their kids for an afternoon, and I love it because I can make so many new friends who live at the center as well as fellow volunteers how attend different schools around Memphis. I feel apart of such a community when I see everyone wearing their bright blue GPS squad volunteer T-shirts showing they are there to help. It’s such a fun way to meet new people in Memphis that you might not have come into contact with otherwise. They are also always looking for volunteers so this is a great way to get involved in our community. I know I look forward to all of our events and it benefits so many people in so many good ways. It’s so easy to get involved too; whether it’s your first time helping out or you’re a regular volunteer, you will always feel welcome and among a community.
