Schools may exceed capacity More portable classrooms on tap By Lela Garlington garlington@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2349

If all of Collierville’s public school students sign up to attend the town’s new municipal school district this fall, oicials say they will have to add more portable classrooms and require some teachers to loat between classrooms at Collierville High and Schilling Middle. “It’s going to tax the schools,” Supt. John Aitken said during this week’s school board meeting. But he stressed that the numbers do not take into account a potential agreement between Collierville and Germantown that could help ease overcrowding. Currently about 1,100 Collierville students attend schools in Germantown. An inter-local agreement could guarantee Collierville students who are already in Germantown schools places until their exit grade from elementary, middle or high school. If such an agreement isn’t reached, Collierville High could have as many as 2,869

Had they not signed up for the alternative spring break trip, University of North Texas students could have been on the beaches of Padre Island and participating in the decades-old pastime of drunken debauchery. Instead a half-dozen students and a staf member are walking puppies, cleaning cages, organizing a storage area and learning more about animal behavior at the Collierville Animal Shelter. Another UNT group is volunteering at the Mid-South Food Bank. The weeklong volunteer work is through UNT’s Center for Leadership and Service. “We want to make them more

This is my last semester,” said biology major John Gines, 23, of Fort Worth. All the students paid $250 for the trip that ends Friday when they drive nine hours back to Denton, which is north of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The students are staying at First Congregational Church’s Pilgrim House in Midtown. In addition to working from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, the group will go to Beale Street, the Memphis Zoo and the National Civil Rights Museum and sample such local culinary delights as Gus’s fried chicken and Corky’s barbecue.

PepsiCo plant on byhalia Road shuts down Slump in cola sales idles 60 workers By Wayne Risher risher@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2874

PepsiCo Inc. shut down production at its Collierville bottling plant last Thursday, idling about 60 workers as the soft drink giant grapples with a long national slump in cola sales. The employees were sent home

after they arrived for work Thursday morning at the plant at 150 S. Byhalia Road, said Terry Lovan, president and business manager of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 984. About 100 employees on the distribution and sales side of the facility aren’t afected. PepsiCo’s closure follows the shutdown of facilities announced this year at Abilene, Texas; Dayton, Ohio; Roanoke, Va., and Salem, Ore. Despite the national contrac-

tion, Lovan said the shutdown came out of the blue. “The people reported to work this morning. They told them they were closing the production side,” Lovan said. “That’s the American way any more. Wake up in the morning, and you’re liable to not have a job.” Lovan said he received a formal notiication later last Thursday and scheduled a meeting with the company to ind out more. Collierville city oicials received a letter from Pepsi saying

the layofs include 12 salaried workers and 43 hourly workers. Mayor Stan Joyner said the letter indicated the closure was due to increased cost pressures and excess capacity. “We hate to see them go,” Joyner said. “They’ve been a great corporate citizen for the years that they’ve been here.” Pepsi spokeswoman Gina Anderson said, “We plan to close down production operations at our Collierville beverage facility efective immediately. Asso-

ciated work will move to other facilities within our system. This diicult decision was made with careful consideration and we’re committed to providing support to afected employees by ofering outplacement services. A majority of employees will remain at the Collierville facility.” It’s unclear where products sold in Greater Memphis would be made. Staf writer Lela Garlington of The Commercial Appeal contributed to this story.

As part of the $109.3 million Interstate 40-240 interchange improvement project, Sam Cooper Boulevard was shut down to one lane eastbound last weekend. Westbound traic also is scheduled to be reduced to one lane this weekend.

ROADWORK AHEAD By Tom Charlier charlier@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2572

Jason Rasmussen all but said goodbye to Sam Cooper Boulevard last Saturday. On the irst day of a scheduled 18-month period of lane closures along the heavily traveled route in East Memphis, Rasmussen, 46, experienced few problems as eastbound traic was reduced to only one lane. But with heavier weekday traic expected to cause more congestion, and with westbound traic also set to be reduced to one lane this weekend, he plans to avoid Sam Cooper for quite a while. “I can drive around it,” Rasmussen said. “I wouldn’t want to try it on a Monday morning, that’s for sure.” The lane closures are needed to accommodate the renovation of the critical Interstate 40-240 interchange, which includes the widening and reconstruction of Sam Cooper just west of I-40. The interchange work also includes the construction of a 75-foot-high lyover ramp connecting eastbound I-40 with the north loop of the interstate, the completion of a westbound ramp to the north loop, and the replacement of the I-40 bridge over the Wolf River with a

initial sam Cooper lane closures pinch traic but major delays to come wider, seismically sound span. The $109.3 million contract for the project is the largest ever awarded by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. Last weekend, only the eastbound lane closures were in efect, as workers spent much of Saturday installing the concrete Jersey barriers used to separate traic. The closure extends more than a half-mile from near the White Station bridge over Sam Cooper to the Wolf River bridge on I-40. Although traic was relatively light, by early afternoon a queue of vehicles stretching west almost to Perkins had formed. Cars were moving steadily through the work zone, but some motorists chose to cross the median to make U-turns and avoid it. Sam Cooper, which carried an average of 73,000 vehicles daily in 2012, is an important commuting route connecting suburban areas with Midtown and Downtown Memphis.

TDOT spokeswoman Nichole Lawrence said the state will use its electronic Dynamic Message Boards to give motorists advance notice of the construction zone so they can seek alternative routes. “I think local people will igure it out — that they can go around it,” Lawrence said. Traic engineers for Memphis and Bartlett say they’re concerned that the construction will prompt so many motorists onto other roads that the timing of trafic lights might need to be reset. Streets such as Summer and Walnut Grove are likely to absorb most of the extra traic, they say. TDOT oicials say the contractor, Dement Construction Co. of Jackson, Tenn., has incentives in its contract to complete the irst-phase work early to allow the reopening of Sam Cooper lanes before the scheduled 18-month period is up. The entire interchange project is expected to be inished in about three and a half years. The interchange work got under way as another major project, the widening of I-240 between Poplar and Walnut Grove, was winding down. That project, which is a year behind schedule, now is expected to be completed by midsummer.

students. With that many students, oicials say, they would need between 10 and 15 portable classrooms. . With its current 1,947 students, Collierville High is using 97 percent of its building space — not counting its two existing portable classrooms. Schilling Farms Middle now has 988 students. That number could jump to 1,141 students in August. The middle school campus is at about 98.8 percent capacity now — not counting the school’s existing eight portable classrooms. With 1,100 or so students, it could be at 114 percent building capacity by August. The 40 people in the audience at the board meeting in Town Hall audibly groaned as they watched a PowerPoint presentation on two large video screens that showed projections for the high school numbers. Collierville parents will sign up their children during March 24, 25 and 27 early enrollment dates. “The early enrollment numbers will help us gauge what we can expect in August,” Aitken said. School oicials outlined how the eight schools could adapt in the event all the town’s children stay in the district. In addition to portable buildings and floating teachers, other suggestions that school consultant Mike Simpson mentioned included split shifts, reconiguring grade structures and leasing temporary space. Simpson said the district could expect to get a maximum of four portable buildings by Aug. 1. Previously, CHS has enrolled as many as 2,400 students by employing loating teachers, who transfer among classrooms not in use, and by using the existing two portable classrooms. School board member Kevin Vaughan said the school system will consider building another school within the next few years. School board chairman Mark Hansen said: “With good data, it will let the Board of Mayor and Aldermen know we’ve done our homework.”

Collierville Animal Shelter. “I wish other shelters would take advantage of this,” said shelter director Nina Wingield. “We do reward them. I have lots of chocolate and cookies. We’re also buying them pizza,” she said. Wingield learned about the UNT program when another local private nonproit shelter turned a similar group down because it didn’t allow untrained volunteers near their animals. “I love it. We plan on projects that take a lot of time like cleaning out the shed and reorganizing it, or cleaning out the feral cat habitat,” Wingield said. Site leader Taylor Jones, who wants to be a veterinarian, assisted with surgery this week by doing the prep work. “When they operate on puppies, they sometimes hold their breath. I had to make sure they weren’t. It was very nerve wracking to me,” said Jones, 18. “You can’t replace the ield experience,” said sophomore Morgan Silva, who wants to be an animal behavior researcher. “This is much better than just reading about it.”

Facilities to be replaced after study shows risk of collapse By Jennifer Pignolet pignolet@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2372

Germantown will spend $929,000 to replace two aeration towers at one of its water treatment plants after a seismic study showed they would likely collapse during an earthquake. The project is the bigger of two public services projects the Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved last week, in addition to a $300,000 sewer repair. The two concrete aeration towers at the Southern Avenue facility stand 35 feet tall, 25 feet wide and

88 feet long and add oxygen to the water after it is pumped out of the aquifer. One of the towers is 35 years old and the other is 38 years old. Germantown public services director Bo Mills said aerating the water is what makes it smell and taste less like well water. If there were to be a major earthquake, he said, the ire department could still get water by bypassing the aeration step. But for longterm residential, it’s one of a few important features, along with adding chlorine and luoride. “Our water is that pure,” Mills said. “We’re very

Central Day School to close this year; church elders cite declining enrollment By Marlon W. Morgan morgan@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2792

Citing declining enrollment over the last five years, Central Day School in Collierville has announced it will close at the end of the school year. Five years ago, the school, which is housed at Central Church, 2005 Winchester, had 355 students enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade. During the current school year, that number dipped to 228, said Central Church director of operations David Darnell. “Basically, we’re proud of the rich history that the school has had over the years,” Darnell said. “It’s a testament to our great, dedicated and gifted teachers. But unfortunately, the

elders have been faced with about ive years of declining enrollment and inancial issues. “Now with the municipal school systems coming in, the numbers made it such that the elders had to make the decision to close the school.” Darnell said the elders reached their decision early last week. The announcement was made to the faculty last Friday, and a letter was sent to parents. Lelita Jefers, a parent of two Central Day School children, said she was shocked when she received her letter in the mail. Her oldest son, Richmond, is an eighth-grader who has attended the school since kindergarten. He will go to Harding Academy next year. But she now must ind a school for her youngest,

Ryan, a second-grader. “I told my 9-year-old that his school was closing and he cried,” Jefers said. “He cried big tears because of his friends, his teachers. It was just heart-sickening for him. He’s thriving there. He’s doing so well in that school because the teachers care so much about their kids. They go above and beyond.” Jeffers said parents were given no indication the school was in inancial trouble. She said that some parents requested to meet with elders, but were sent a letter from the church attorney saying no such meeting would take place. Central Day School opened in August 1995 when Central Church was located in Hickory Hill. It employs 32 faculty and administrators, Darnell said.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the funding for the new designs March 10. The money will come out of reserve funds generated by customers’ water bills. Mills said work on the project will not begin until October. The two existing towers will be replaced with one, more eicient tower. One tower will need to stay in service while the main one is under construction. That will decrease the plant’s production level by half, from 12 million gallons a day to six million.

million project to renovate the main building of the water treatment plant and didn’t have the extra funding for the aeration towers. Last year, the city sought bids for the project, but the numbers came back higher than estimated and the city scratched the project. According to city documents, the lowest bid was 31 percent more than the city’s budget for the project, which at the time was proposed as a renovation instead of a reconstruction. “We redesigned a little bit,” Mills said. “We changed some of our thought processes.”

Schilling students participate in convention By Marsha Nall Special to The Weekly

Schilling Farms Middle School students competed in the annual Junior Beta Club Convention in Nashville March 2-4. Students from about 140 Junior Beta clubs all across the state competed in various academic, performance, music, art and craft competitions. Schilling students won awards in 10 of the 21 categories in which they competed. Team competitions included awards for second place in Battle of the Books and ifth in Tower of Power. Individual awards went to Jessy Olatt for campaign speech, Natalie Estes for language arts, Ben May for math, Alice Zakharenko for acrylic painting and pencil sketch, Dani Cagna for color photography and Grace Capooth for pastels. Harrison Powell,

the state secretary from SFMS, presided over the third session of the convention, ending his year of duties and leadership training. Club sponsors, Barbara Toberman, Dr. Carol Brawner, Catelyn Maxwell, myself and ESL teacher Shelly Misenheimer accompanied the 68 students and 30 parent chaperones to the convention. Parents Trina Blankenship, Anjelica Merkle and Laura Capooth worked for months preparing the team competitions for Tower of Power, Living Literature and Battle of the Books. Approximately 30 students under the supervision of Merkle and Maxwell prepared a scene from Tarzan of the Apes while students painted canvas backgrounds and the boat which abandoned Tarzan’s parents on the African coast with costumed students posing like wax igures frozen in the scene. Toberman prepared 40 students to compete in Songfest with lyrics written by Emma Stopher. Toberman also organized students, backdrops and costumes in Jessy Olatt’s campaign skit for state president. This was Schilling’s seventh year to com-

pete. Olatt ran for state president with the theme “Jessy O is the way to go” based on a Wizard of Oz theme. In the Tower of Power competition, students had to build the tallest tower that can hold a tennis ball using 150 straws, a roll of masking tape and scissors. The coach was Trina Blankenship and the group members were Tyler Blankenship, Nicolas Brockman, Claire Thomas, Brianna Barrentine, Josh Thompson; alternates: Divya Dwarampudi, Sahithi Kundavajjala. In the Battle of the Books, students had to answer any questions regarding 12 assigned books in a knowledge bowl setting. The coach was Laura Capooth and team members were Grace Capooth, Sara Pacer, Shreya Varrier, Anjali Padiyar. The Quiz Bowl team coach was Carol Brawner and team members were Adu Menon, Mohammed Hyder, Isha Sahasrabudhe, Aby Binu, Sri Choudannavar and Ziven Noorani. Marsha Nall is an eighth-grade teacher at Schilling Farms Middle School.

Schools ST. BENEDICT

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

School receives national recognition

Students honored by National Merit Organization

By Sharon Masterson Special to The Weekly

St. Benedict at Auburndale High School principal Sondra Morris was recently notiied that the school was one of ive recipients in the nation receiving the annual Charity & Social Service Honor presented by the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The school submitted a student-produced video to the Memphis Diocese describing the many ways and programs they provide service to the greater community. The video presented to the local diocese for submission was chosen to be the Memphis representative in the competition. From there, the Basilica selected the Memphis video as one of the ive to be honored. Senior Chris Schuhlein of Germantown, who played an integral part in the production of the video, will represent the school and Diocese at the March 29 ceremonies in Washington at the National Shrine. St. Benedict based the video on the school’s Benedictine charism of “pray and work.” The students were congratulated by Memphis Catholic Diocese Bishop J. Terry Steib by video, wherein he praised all the SBA Eagles in “The Nest,” for their service and this recent accomplishment. The Bishop granted the students a day of from school on Easter. Superintendent of Catholic Schools Janet Donato thanked the students for their hundreds of hours service each year and for taking the time to produce the video to bring recognition to the Diocese and the school. St. Benedict’s video may be found on the National Shrine’s website at nationalshrine.com. Click on “News & Events” and then “Honors Program” for a list of honorees and a link to the videos on YouTube.

Fashion MEMPHIS FASHION WEEK

DRESSED BY DESIGN Custom-designed bridal gowns, new ilm series add to Memphis Fashion Week glamour By Barbara Bradley Special to The Commercial Appeal

M

ost designers are introverts, says Russian-born wedding gown creator Olia Zavozina. They’d rather sketch and let the sales folks deal with customers. So some brides-to-be have been surprised to ind themselves sitting down with Zavozina herself at her store in Nashville as she sketched out a design inspired by the bride’s own personality and desires. Brides can have a dress created for them or choose an existing design, the new spring ones to be shown as part of Memphis Fashion Week, two days of runway shows March 28-29 at Annesdale Mansion and General DeWitt Spain Airport as well as surrounding events.

Zavozina’s collection will be well showcased March 28 at the renovated Midtown mansion, now a popular wedding venue, along with the collections of Byron Lars, Waverly Gray and former Memphian Annie Griin. New York designer Hilton Hollis will return for his second Memphis Fashion Week appearance March 29 at DeWitt Spain. Also showing will be former Memphian Ellis Dixon with her new line Fluid Sunwear, and 15 winners of the Emerging Memphis Designer Project. This year’s event expands with an indie ilm series, fashion-related documentaries shown on three nights this month, as well as a Memphis Fashion Fund Party to support programs such as Emerging Memphis Designer Project, which cultivates local designers and artists in the fashion industry. Last year’s irst- and second-place project winners, Tara Skelley and Star Hawks, will be back with new fashions. Dixon, who now lives in Lisbon, Portugal, will bring the line she started last year of mostly 1950s-inspired made-to-measure swimwear. The globe-trotting Dixon said by email that Portugal was “a great place to be inspired by the weather, the sea and the sights.” Plus it lets her stay close to European fashion trends. Dixon’s swimsuits, available in a choice of fabrics, are made in Los Angeles and sold online at luidsunwear.com. Freeze models will show the work of two locally designed jewelry lines, Becca Belz and Brave Design, as well as eyewear from Eclectic Eye. VIP tickets for Memphis Fashion Week are almost sold out, said director Abby Phillips, but there are plenty of general admission seats. Last year about 350 people attended both nights, and she expects the same this year. One of the headliners is Zavozina, whose gowns are sold in boutiques nationwide and at select Nordstrom Wedding Suites, and whose work has

Former Memphian Ellis Dixon will show her line of Fluid Sunwear swimsuits at Memphis Fashion Week.

Olia Zavozina, who moved to Nashville from Russia to attend college, married and established her bridal gown design business there, is on the road frequently with her line but likes to have personal contact with the brides-to-be as her staf creates made-to-measure bridal gowns.

been featured in People Magazine, on “Good Morning America,” in “Martha Stewart Weddings.” The line got a little star-power boost in the March issue of Southern Living magazine. A bonus section featured Hayden Panettiere, star of ABC’s hit series “Nashville,” wearing a blush-toned, high-low hemmed gown by Zavozina. The designer came to America in 2003 by way of Tyumen in Siberia, where she was studying to be a translator in the area of world economy and inance, she said. She was visiting the South to perfect her English, but ended up inishing her degree at what is now Welch College in Nashville and marrying a Nashville native. Sewing and designing since she was a child, she launched her design career in this country through the Nashville Fashion Group, starting with custom jackets and later cocktail

dresses sold in Nashville stores, and moved on to wedding gowns in 2008. She now creates about 500 designs a year sold at stores all over, including Maggie Louise Bridal in Collierville. Brides-to-be may work with one of her stylists, choose from the entire line at the Nashville store at Edgehill Village, and receive a dress that is made for their measurements. Modiications including fabric choice, neckline and hem, are free she said. The cost generally runs $2,000 to $4,000. But Zavozina enjoys designing for individual brides whenever she isn’t away traveling with her line. “I like to get to know the bride, and I know it makes a diference,” she said. “It’s so creative, and I grow as a designer.” So often have the brides inspired her designs that many dresses in her collection are named after them. Women often come in with pictures

of gowns they like, said Zavozina. But she gets more help by simply asking them: “How do you want to feel like on your wedding day?” They may say they want to feel sexy, elegant, comfortable, etc. Then she knows a lot, she said. Zavozina said stark white is out as a wedding gown trend, with women favoring instead an often more lattering ivory or blush (closer to a taupe than to pink), light blue or platinum gray. Southern brides from Memphis as well as Nashville gravitate toward traditional lace gowns, she said, but favor itted styles over the Southern belle ballgown.

Parker launches long-awaited shoe line at Nordstrom By Nicole Brodeur Seattle Times

SEATTLE — She’s tiny. Can barely inish a plate of berries. She’s left-handed. Says things like “No. Way.” And to every person who approached her at the downtown Nordstrom shoe department earlier this month, she extended a hand. “I’m Sarah Jessica,” she said. “Very nice to meet you.” “Sex and the City” went of the air 10 years ago, but it doesn’t matter to fans of the show and its star, Sarah Jessica Parker. They still watch it in syndication and have locked to two big-screen ilms.

beTTinA hAnSen/SeATTle TiMeS/MCT

“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker talks about her new line of shoes at a Nordstrom store in Seattle.

And they lined up for hours March 5 to spend an average of $300 on a pair of shoes designed

by Parker and Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus III. “It was all about the

single sole, and no platform, no heavy shoe,” said Malkemus, who is accompanying Parker on a tour of Nordstrom stores, the only retailer to carry the SJP Collection. Parker has been approached by many designers about a shoe line over the years, but she always dreamed of working with Malkemus. Friends urged her to call him one afternoon last year. “She was my dream,” Malkemus said of Parker’s request that he collaborate. “It was a perfect dream.” After a year, the line was inished: 25 styles, all made in Italy, which start at $195 for the Billie suede lat and go to $485 for the

Alison bootie. The line includes three handbags that sell for $245 to $375 and a “Manhattan” grosgraintrim skirted trenchcoat in blue or beige, which sells for $495. Each shoe has a grosgrain ribbon up the back, a remembrance of the ribbons Parker used to wear in her hair — and iron — as a child. Parker named all the shoes for fashion icons, family members and friends. Perhaps the most iconic is a T-strap heel called Carrie, which comes in black, but also purple and green — choices Parker has called “subversive.” “We always thought that it was always going

to be the shoe I loved the most,” Parker said. And is it? “I don’t know if that’s the truth. I can’t compare them to my children (James Wilkie, 11; and twins Marion and Tabitha, 4). They would wring my neck if I compared the shoes to my children. “It’s that feminine, ladylike thing, but there’s something kind of naughty and irrepressible and inappropriate.” As for the legacy of the character it’s named for, and “Sex and the City”? “I don’t know what the legacy is. I think I am illequipped to answer that. That is one of the questions that I feel other people should answer.”

BASEBALL OUTLOOK

Area schools loaded with talented teams By Pete Wickham Special to The Weekly

Collierville brought home its irst state AAA baseball championship last May, a year after Arlington did the same thing. As good as the baseball is in Shelby County, know how rare that is? One has to back nearly 20 years for back-to-back area state AAA champions — Germantown (1995) and Houston (1996). So 2014 could be a watershed year. The chance exists for the area to have its irst AAA three-peat, and Collierville coach Jef Hopkins knows there’s no shortage of candidates. “Bartlett might have its best team in 3-4 years. Houston’s outstanding. Arlington is strong,â€? Hopkins said, “and Dyer County (which also went to state last year) has four arms already signed by colleges for next year. The deal is, we could be really, really good this year ‌ and stay home.â€? A year ago, the pitching of Brandon Hicks (now at Murray St.) and Peyton Sanderlin (CBU) carried the Dragons to a 34-12 record. This year, the ace will be last year’s closer, senior righty Bradley Crain (3-1, 4 saves). Peyton Culbertson, 6-1 as a sophomore will be back as will junior Alex Hicks. The lineup is filled with veterans like threeyear starting SS Brandon Montgomery (.299, 19 steals), headed to UMemphis, junior irst baseman Parker Phillips, who made the All-State team with six homers last year, powerhitting CF Grayson Moye, also a three-year stater, and catcher Cody Young (.346) and 2B-P Kyle Dailey (.304). “The key to our success is if our pitching develops,â€? said Hopkins, whose team got of to a 3-3 start, “but if they develop like I think they will, we could be outstanding when May rolls around.â€? Houston (30-15) was denied a trip to Murfreesboro by a 1-0 defeat against Dyer County in the sectional. The Mustangs return some veterans with senior OF Logan Blackfan (a Southern Illinois signee), 1B-P Jake Greer (Samford), OF-turned-SS Wes Rober-

Collierville High’s softball team took second place at the Brentwood Classic by going 5-2 overall. The Dragons were led with strong hitting by lead-of batter Hannah Oliver and by Bayleigh Wisher. Against Brentwood, Wisher hit a “walk-of� grand slam against the tournament host Brentwood. Wisher and Kelsey Gross led the Dragons to the championship game with their pitching.

son (Gulf Coast CC), leadof man Walker Lamberth and catcher Cullen Lynd. Sophomore CF Ayrton Schaefer (.400) impressed at the plate as a freshman starter while 3B Jack Kenley held his own with the glove as a rookie. “You can tell the diference this year by the way they walk around,â€? McCarter said. “They feel like they belong now.â€? Pitching will tell a lot of the tale with senior Bryan Waldrop and juniors Walter Rook, Connor Hayman and Jack Rude (7-0 as a sophomore) in the rotation. Junior Niko Warmus and senior Joey Reed will come out of the bullpen. McCartrer, whose team got of to a 5-1 start, agrees with Hopkins that “you get out of the area you have a real shot at winning state ‌ the hardest part is getting there.â€? Casey Callaway’s Germantown squad went 19-17 last year, fell in the districts and have some big holes to ill, notably at catcher where junior Cullen Ray replaces longtime team leader Ridge Smith, now at Austin Peay. “Cullen got bigger and stronger over the ofseason and should be a stronger hitter this year,â€? said Callaway, whose Red Devils have started the season 3-3. Senior Joseph Rodgers could play three inield spots during the season, and Callaway said, “you’ll see that with several players on the roster.â€? Chris Little will be back in RF, while sophomore Dacoda Stone moves to center as a replacement for Doug Collins, an Air Force Academy signee who will miss the season

after shoulder surgery. Junior RHP Chris Howell (6-3) will anchor the rotation. Preston Collins, a sophomore lefty, is one to watch. Briarcrest coach Kevin Sneathern’s team went 1021 last year. He sees better days ahead with a group of seven seniors, a promising JV squad in the wings and the return of junior OF Bond Watson, who played last year at Marshall Academy. “Bond has a big time arm, and adds a big bat to our lineup,â€? Sneathern said. Matt Cunningham will be the staf ace this year. Second-baseman Paxton Pearson has signed with Illinois-Springfield, and Cort Satterield is back at third. A pair of juniors, SS Ben Ellis and 1B David Foster draw raves from their coach. “I expect big things from them ‌ and I hear from several colleges a day asking about those the juniors.â€? For this year, however, he admits “were just hoping to close the gap.â€? St. George’s returns only three starters, led by junior P-IF Connor Green, the ace of the rotation, senior OF William Brown and junior Davis Baty, who will split the catching duties with sophomore Judson Scott. “So far the young guys are doing what they’re supposed to do,â€? coach Buzz Walthall said. “The pitching has been a big surprise, and Connor’s a real front-line type of arm. Our defense has been good, but we’re not a power team at the plate. We’re going to have to manufacture runs.â€?

The St. Louis sixth-grade girls basketball team won the PAA champion for the second consecutive year. Winning team members are Lily Manuel (front, left), Britt Andreini, Sarah Moran of Germantown, Amelia Hinton of Germantown, Mary Helen Weirich, Sarah Grace Wingield; coach Danny Andreini (back), Lucia Garafa of Germantown, Laney Skinner of Collierville, Kailtyn Broughton, Sarah Reno, Jenni Grace Wolbrecht of Germantown and coach Jim Broughton.

Tigers 2014 NCAA TOURNAMENT

Memphis’ NCAA South Region is loaded Top name teams could be at Forum By Zack McMillin zmcmillin@commercialappeal.com 901-300-9225

If the top four seeds in the NCAA tournament’s South Region advance in this week’s second- and third-round games, it will be tough for any Sweet 16 site to match the ield that would be headed to Memphis’ FedExForum March 27, at least in terms of name recognition and past tournament achievement.

And if those top four seeds — No. 1 Florida (31-2), No. 2 Kansas (24-9), No. 3 Syracuse (27-5) and No. 4 UCLA (26-8) — do falter, the most likely “upsets” would come from No. 5 VCU (26-7) or No. 6 Ohio State (25-9), teams with big tournament success in the recent past. Over the last 11 years, all six of those teams have made a Final Four, ive have made the championship game and three have won the title. During this regular season, two of those teams held the No. 1 ranking for consecutive weeks (Florida and Syracuse), another

(Kansas) rose as high as No. 2 and another (Ohio State) held the No. 3 ranking for several weeks. Florida earned the tournament’s overall No. 1 ranking after going 18-0 in the Southeastern Conference regular season and winning the SEC tournament on Sunday. The Gators, who won back-to-back titles in 2006-07, start four seniors and have ive players averaging between nine and 14 points, led by senior swingman Casey Prather and senior point guard Scottie Wilbekin. Kansas, of course, won that 2008 national title game at Mem-

phis’ expense, and also features former Memphis Tiger big man Tarik Black, pressed into the starting rotation because of a back injury to Joel Embiid. Kansas is led by likely NBA lottery pick Andrew Wiggins, who averages 17 points. Syracuse, which made the Final Four last year and won the 2003 title (beating Kansas), was the nation’s top team after starting 25-0 but lost ive of its inal seven games. Four players average 12 or more points for Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim, with C.J. Fair leading the way with 16.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per

game. UCLA, under irst-year coach Steve Alford (who won a national title as a player at Indiana), just defeated Arizona for the Pac-12 tournament title in Las Vegas, behind 21 points and 15 rebounds from Kyle Anderson. UCLA’s irst opponent? Tulsa, whose coach, Danny Manning, won the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award in 1988 at Kansas, the year after Alford was MOP for Indiana. The South Region semiinals will be March 27 and the inal will be March 29. For tickets call (800) 745-3000 or visit NCAA. com/mbbtickets.

Memphis head men’s basketball coach Josh Pastner is excited to lead his Tigers into Friday’s NCAA second-round tournament game against George Washington. The Tigers will play the Colonials at 5:55 p.m. CDT in Raleigh, N.C.

Pastner knows year will be measured by tournament success By Jason Smith smithjas@commercialappeal.com 901-529-5804

When University of Memphis coach Josh Pastner saw American Athletic Conference tournament champion Louisville on the No. 4 line during last Sunday’s NCAA tournament Selection Show, he knew the Tigers wouldn’t be seeded as highly as he hoped. Louisville, Pastner said, had looked like a No. 1 seed in steamrolling to the AAC tournament title at FedExForum last week. Memphis, meanwhile, had been ousted in the quarterinals by Connecticut, its third loss in ive games. Still, Pastner said “the mood was good” when the Tigers (23-9) learned they were the No. 8 seed in the East Region and will play No. 9 George Washington (24-8) at 5:55 p.m. CDT Friday in Raleigh, N.C., in the tourney’s second round. “Guys were excited. We know that it’s a fresh new start. We’ll be ready to play,” said Pastner, who had expected Memphis to be a six or seven seed. Memphis, one of four AAC teams to make the tournament, will be facing a George Washington team Pastner admitted he hasn’t seen much this season. The Colonials finished the regular season tied for third with Saint Joseph’s in the Atlantic 10 standings behind Saint Louis and VCU. The Colonials lost 74-55 to VCU in the semiinals of the A10 tournament. The Memphis-George Washington winner will face the winner of

the game between No. 1-seeded Virginia and No. 16 Coastal Carolina in the third round Sunday. Memphis, which is making its fourth straight NCAA tournament appearance under Pastner, advanced to the third round last year as a No. 6 seed, beating Saint Mary’s in the second round to earn Pastner’s irst NCAA tournament win before falling by 22 points to a more physical Michigan State team. “We know we’re gonna be judged on what we do this week. There’s no ducking that. We’re not trying to hide from it,” Pastner said. “We know what we gotta do. We can’t just show up and talk about it.” Asked about the team’s mood, senior guard Michael Dixon Jr. said the Tigers haven’t dwelled on the loss to Connecticut. Memphis watched the Selection Show from behind closed doors, away from local media. Pastner said he did

a “private viewing” this year because the team had “a celebration” during the show the last three seasons and hadn’t advanced past the irst weekend. “We didn’t play well our last game, but that’s out of our control now. The only thing we can control is preparing for George Washington. It’s just as simple as that,” Dixon said. “I told (senior teammate) Chris (Crawford) we’re literally playing for our life.” After the loss to Connecticut, senior guard Geron Johnson guaranteed the Tigers would win both games this week. Crawford backed Johnson’s guarantee. “You know I’m rolling with Geron,” Crawford said. “Whatever he said, I’m going to roll with him. He guaranteed two wins and that’s what we gotta do. We gotta get the job done.”

Pellom to provide intel on his former GW team By Michael Cohen mcohen@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2525

By now you know Memphis received a No. 8 seed in the East Region, and you’re probably aware that the Tigers will take on ninth-seeded George Washington in Raleigh, N.C., on Friday at 5:55 p.m. But what you may not know is Memphis, a team hungry for its next game following a 19-point loss to Connecticut during the quarterinals of the American Athletic Conference tournament, has a built-in

cheat sheet when it comes to the Colonials. His name is David Pellom. Pellom, a ifth-year senior and graduate student, transferred to Memphis from George Washington. He played three seasons and redshirted a fourth in our nation’s capital, and you better believe he knows the tendencies and skill sets of each of his former teammates. That Josh Pastner and his assistants will tap into their unique resource is unquestioned, and it probably happened just minutes after the selection show ended.

But what should Tiger fans make of the Colonials outside of the Pellom connection? First, you ought to know GW, a team that went 24-8 overall with an 11-5 record in the Atlantic 10 conference, has five wins over teams in this year’s NCAA tournament ield: Creighton, VCU, St. Joseph’s, UMass and Manhattan. So GW is no slouch. Next you should know the Colonials, much like Memphis, pride themselves on having a balanced ofensive attack. George Washington has ive players that

average double igures in scoring this season, with Maurice Creek topping the list at 14.6 points per game and Kethan Savage coming of the bench to chip in 13.4. Six diferent players have scored at least 20 points in a game this season for coach Mike Lonergan’s team. George Washington is also a team built on transfers. Creek, the leading scorer, and Isaiah Armwood, the leading rebounder, both arrived in Washington after stints at Indiana and Villanova, respectively.

University of Memphis coach Josh Pastner and senior guard Geron Johnson were headed to the locker room after their 19-point loss to Connecticut last week in the quarterinals of the American Athletic Conference tournament when Johnson turned to Pastner and apologized. “He told me, ‘I was in a daze in the irst half.’ He told me that,” Pastner said. “I’m like, ‘How did that happen? How are we in a daze?’ and he says, ‘Coach, we were just in a daze.’ ” While teams like UCLA, Louisville and Michigan State enter this week’s NCAA tournament as trendy picks to advance due in part to their impressive runs to conference tournament titles, No. 8-seeded Memphis (23-9), which plays No. 9-seeded George Washington (24-8) in Friday’s second round in Raleigh, N.C., is trying to snap out of a “daze” that’s seen it lose three of its last ive games. Though Johnson hasn’t played particularly well over that stretch, few of the Tigers have. But it’s two players in particular — senior guard Joe Jackson and sophomore forward Shaq Goodwin, the team’s top perimeter and interior threats — that Memphis needs to get going if it’s going to win two games this week in the tournament as Johnson guaranteed. Jackson has shot just 36 percent from the ield (18 of 50) over Memphis’ last ive games, and hasn’t been the spark plug ofensively or defensively of late that the Tigers need him to be. He’s registered three or fewer assists in four of the last ive games (he averages 4.5) and has just three steals over that stretch. Goodwin, meanwhile, hasn’t scored in double figures in four straight games, having been plagued by foul trouble of late. While he’s otherwise played with good efort, he’s shooting just 26.3 percent from the ield over Memphis’ last four games (5 of 19) and 54.2 percent from the free-throw line, and has nearly three times as many turnovers (14) as he does made ield goals. Memphis has gone 16-1 in games in which both Jackson and Goodwin have scored in double igures and just 7-8 in the games in which one or both scored fewer than 10 points. “I don’t think it’s lipping a switch to turn it

U of M guard Joe Jackson averages 4.2 assists a game but has had three or fewer in four of the Tigers’ last five games.

on. They just gotta play to their abilities. “Shaq’s playing very hard. He’s gotta make free throws. He’s gotta inish those short shots. He’s gotta catch the ball. He can’t turn it over. But he plays hard. There’s no issue with his efort. It’s a focus thing. “Joe was really good in practice Friday, on Saturday and (Monday). I really like where Joe’s at (mentally). The last three days he’s been a chatterbox. When he’s talking and got some ire in him, you can just see it. To me, that’s healthy.” Pastner said he doesn’t subscribe to the theory that teams can’t advance deep into the tournament having not played their best basketball in the games leading up to it. The 1996-97 national champion Arizona team that he was a part of lost two straight games and three of its last six before winning six straight in the NCAA tournament. “We went into the tournament on a two-game losing streak and we won six in a row,” Pastner said. “VCU went to the Final Four (in 2011) and didn’t think they were getting in (the tournament). Xavier a couple of years ago (in 2012) where we beat ’em and they went to the Sweet 16 coming off a couple losses. “I think at this point of the year it just kind of rejuvenates you, re-energizes you and everybody starts fresh and clean,” he said. “We’re more than capable. Now we just gotta step up and do it on the loor.”

New ishing regulations go into efect March 26 By Bryan Brasher brasher@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2343

They aren’t as dramatic as the ones that caused such a stir among Mississippi crappie anglers last year, but several new regulations will go into efect for the state’s lakes and rivers March 26. Anglers on Lake Washington in Washington County will no longer be allowed to use limb lines or set hooks to catch ish. But

sport-ishing trotlines and free-floating fishing devices like jugs and noodles will still be allowed, along with traditional yo-yos. Creel limits for the ponds at the Charles Ray Nix Wildlife Management Area in Panola County will now be the same as the statewide limits for all species, and skiers visiting state ishing lakes will be allowed to ski on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day from noon until sunset. The nearest

Mississippi state ishing lake to the Memphis area is Tippah County Lake in Ripley. “We had a lot of complaints about limb lines on Lake Washington,” said Dennis Riecke, a isheries biologist with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. “People were leaving ish hanging on them and leaving the lines hanging in the way. There had gotten to be so many of them that it was hard for people to ish

in some areas.” With the weather improving and the crappie starting to bite, some of the old regulations on Mississippi reservoirs are also worthy of a reminder. The regulations for crappie fishing are the same for Arkabutla and Enid lakes. The daily creel limit for crappie is 20 per person, and all crappie must be over 12 inches. Anglers may use no more than ive poles per person with no

more than two hooks or lures per pole. There is a limit of 50 crappie for boats with three or more anglers. The same regulations apply on Grenada Lake except for the rod restriction. Anglers on Grenada may use no more than three poles per person with no more than two hooks or lures per pole. The regulations difer drastically on Sardis Lake where the daily creel limit for crappie is 15 per person and the minimum length

limit is 11 inches. Anglers ishing Sardis may use no more than three poles per person with no more than two hooks or lures per pole, and there is a limit of 40 crappie per boat for boats with three or more anglers. “It’s important to know the regulations for whatever lake you’re ishing,” Riecke said. “Even if you need to check before every trip.” Visit mdwfp.com or call 601-432-2212 for more information.

During a recent team tournament on Grenada Lake, a relatively small ield of 25 boats brought 18 crappie to the scales that weighed 3 pounds or more. Coming from any other lake, such numbers might be met with skepticism. But on Grenada, they’ve become a spring tradition. Perhaps no lake in the country is better known for producing the much-soughtafter 3-pound trophy — and early-season reports say this could be a special year even for a lake with special standards. “Reports of big ish from Grenada are nothing new, but it’s just been amazing so far this year,” said Mike Vallentine, owner of the popular Crappie Masters Tournament Trail. “The best ishing is still before us, and we’ve already seen so many 3-pound crappie. I think we may hit it just right for our tournament down there.” The Crappie Masters will visit Grenada on Friday and Saturday for an annual tournament known as the Mississippi State Championship. Last year, the tournament drew 117 boats — and with a smaller tournament having already produced so many 3-pounders earlier this year, many are excited to see what will be brought to the scales during a larger event with a purse that’s likely to draw some of the best crappie anglers in the country. “The ish are just now coming out of the deeper water onto the shallow lats,” Vallentine said. “Big females are starting to stage, and that’s just going to give anglers more and more chances to get that 3-pounder. It could happen on any cast.” Warren Cotton and Jeremy Davis won last year’s Mississippi State Championship with a two-day total of 14 crappie that weighed 33.96 pounds. Vallentine believes it could take 35 or 36 pounds to win this year — and the battle for big-ish honors will likely be ierce. Missouri residents Deb Sosinski and Joe Meyer have been ishing to prepare for the Crappie Masters event for several weeks. On one trip, two weeks ago, they each topped the 3-pound mark — Sosinski with a ish that weighed 3.25 and Meyer with one that weighed 3.10. “We live on Mark Twain Lake in Stoutsville, Mo., but we do a lot of ishing on Grenada because the ish are so much bigger there,” Sosinski said. “Last spring, we stayed down here in a travel trailer. But since we liked it so much, we got a cabin for this year.” Studies have shown that 3-pound crappie are caught about as often as 13-pound largemouth bass. Not only have most anglers never caught one, many have never even seen one outside of a picture. Because of that rarity, stories of supposed 3-pounders are often exaggerated. But both Vallentine and Sosinski say exaggeration isn’t necessary on Grenada —

Missouri anglers Debbie Sosinski, pictured, and fishing partner Joe Meyer have been fishing Grenada Lake to prepare for the Crappie Masters event scheduled for Friday and Saturday. Two weeks ago, they landed these two giant crappie that weighed 3.25 pounds and 3.10 pounds. Grenada has become nationally known as one of the top lakes for producing 3-pound crappie.

especially this year. “A lot of people don’t really know what a 3-pound crappie looks like,” Sosinski said. “When you hear people talking about a 3-pounder caught from anywhere else, you always have to wonder. But on Grenada, it’s a real possibility every time you go. The ish that weigh 2 or 2½ pounds here — the ish that people consider big on most lakes — are just normal ish on Grenada.” Vallentine agreed. “Grenada Lake has become famous — period,” Vallentine said. “The lake has gone from drawing 250,000 visitors a year to 1.2 million visitors a year. That’s how popular Grenada has come — and it’s all because the lake is known as the home of the 3-pound crappie. “I think it could be one of the more enjoyable tournaments we’ve ever had.”

CRAPPIE MASTERS TOURNAMENT ON GRENADA LAKE When, where: Pre-tournament seminar and registration will be held Thursday at Holmes Community College.

Ducks Unlimited dinner raises $400,000 for conservation By Bryan Brasher brasher@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2343

During its irst 20 years, the annual Ducks Unlimited Wolf River sponsor dinner raised $1,109,467 for wetlands conservation. This year’s dinner raised more than a third of that total — some $400,000 — in three hours. The Feb. 15 event served both as a fundraiser and a tribute to recently retired DU chief adminis-

trative and inancial oficer Randy Graves. In a show of thanks to Graves, members gave like never before. “It was a bigger event than usual due to the tribute to Randy,” said Adam Webster of DU. “People who attended the dinner really gave, and we had some folks who couldn’t make it donate money as well.” The event, which has grown annually since 1994, has become known for consistently raising

more than $100,000 with live and silent auctions that feature one-of-a-kind items. Landowners and hunting plantations from all over the country — and some from other countries — donate hunting and ishing trips, and the bidding is often heated. This year’s live auction featured several hunts, including a one-day trip to Irby Woods Hunting Club in Lambert, Miss., a oneday green timber hunt to Pin Oak Duck Club near Roe, Ark., and a four-night

trip for two to General Belgrano, Argentina. But the biggest earner was a duck-hunting trip for up to 12 hunters on the 7,000acre Mississippi property owned by Duncan and Abby Williams. “The Duncan Williams hunt sold for $8,000,” Webster said. “That’s nothing new. It’s always one of the biggest draws we have.” DU studies have shown that it costs about $250 to conserve one acre of wetlands. That means 1,600

acres will be conserved with funds raised this year for a total of more than 6,000 acres conserved by funds raised from the event since 1994. Webster said the numbers could shift a little in either direction with money still lowing in and some expenses needing to be covered. But the total will still stand as the clear record for the dinner. “It was just a great night all the way around,” Webster said. “It was a very itting tribute to Randy.”

Attitude, laws soften on pit bulls By Linda A. Moore lmoore@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2702

In the 11 years that Donna Velez has operated Hearts of Gold Pit Rescue, she’s never had a problem. With hundreds of pit bulldogs in and out of her home over the years, not once, she said, have her neighbors reported her to Memphis Animal Services or have any of her dogs run loose. “If I can live with 300 or 400 pit bulls and I’ve never had an incident, surely someone that’s half responsible can live with one or two,” Velez said. It’s good news to her and for the breed that communities across the country are backing away from ordinances that ban pit bulls, and states are making those bans illegal. Attitudes have softened considerably as animal activists and television shows like Animal Planet’s “Pit Bulls and Parolees” cast

were, I’d have had them all along. He’s just a jewel.” Memphis does not ban pit bulls, although in 2010 a mandatory spay/neuter ordinance for pits was considered. That discussion resulted in the city’s spay/neuter ordinance for all dogs. Memphis Animal Services requires criminal background checks and fence inspections before pit bulls can be adopted from the shelter, said James Rogers, MAS director. And, while breed restrictions are a “hot button issue,” Rogers said, “It’s not the animal that’s a problem, it’s the person that owns the animal.” Nevertheless, the dogs’ foes complain that their message is being drowned out by a well-funded, wellorganized lobbying efort in state capitols. The debate puts millions of pit bull owners up against a relatively small number of people who have been victimized by the dogs.

the dogs in a more positive light. “Lawmakers are realizing that targeting dogs based on their breed or what they look like is not a solution to dealing with dangerous dogs,” said Lisa Peterson, a spokeswoman for the American Kennel Club. Seventeen states now have laws that prohibit communities from adopting breed-speciic bans. A 2013 bill in Tennessee was proposed and later withdrawn that would have required owners of vicious dogs to obtain $25,000 in liability insurance. It was amended to include pit bulls. The changing attitudes, Velez believes, also come in part from the kinds of people who own pit bulls: doctors, lawyers, teachers and grandmothers like Judy Sutton, who adopted A.C. from Velez four years ago. “He’s my irst pit,” said Sutton, 70. “If I’d known what wonderful dogs they

SERVING THE MID-SOUTH FOR OVER 30 YEARS.

By Katie Pemberton Special to The Weekly

The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County was recently accepted as a contestant in the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. HSMSC is competing with 50 other shelters nationwide for a chance at more than $600,000 in grant funding, including a grand prize of $100,000. The 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters (and their communities) aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. The contest period is June 1 through Aug. 31, and in order to qualify, each shelter must adopt out 300 more animals in the three-month period than in the previous year. “The ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge really gives us an opportunity to engage the Memphis community in helping us save lives,” said Alexis Amorose, HSMSC executive director. “We have a major challenge ahead of us — completing almost double the number of adoptions we did in 2013 — and we absolutely cannot do it without the community’s support.” HSMSC will host a community brainstorm on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the community room at the 935 Farm Road facility. The brainstorm is open to the public; supporters are asked to bring ideas and strategies for increasing adoptions.

LIFEBLOOD

Ethan Cohen overcomes fear, wins volunteer award By Trish Dianetti Special to The Weekly

Ethan Cohen, a senior at St. George’s Independent School, was recently named “Volunteer of the Year” at the Lifeblood annual awards luncheon. Ethan’s story is more than just that of a teenager who donates several pints of blood. This young man is devoted to the cause and his story began when he was just 5 years old. His fear of needles would have him running in terror. He had a debilitating fear hat would make his heart race and his stomach churn. When St. George’s would host one of its three annual blood drives, Ethan would run the other way. One spring day his chemistry teacher was talking about blood do-

nation and an upcoming school blood drive. She explained that the discomfort that Ethan might feel from donating blood would pale in comparison to the all of the beneits his blood would provide to others in need. At that moment he decided it wasn’t all about him and that he could make a difference in other people’s lives. Since that day, Ethan has become thoroughly committed and involved with Lifeblood. For the past year and a half, he has donated countless hours of community service to Lifeblood and the promotion of blood donation. Ethan is so passionate about this that he volunteers at the donation center just about every day of the week, year-round.

He is in charge of donor comfort and care and it gives him an incredible sense of giving. Several times throughout the year, he dresses up as the blood center mascot, “Phil A. Pint” at local events, and travels around the city doing promotional work. He ofers support on mobile blood units when additional help is needed. During the summer, Lifeblood hosts a weeklong event called Donorfest where he promotes the need for blood donation and assists with donor special needs. In addition, he has generously donated over four gallons of blood and platelets himself, no doubt saving countless lives. St. George’s hosts three blood drives throughout the year and Ethan takes

IN MEMORIAM

Mr. Song was a founder of the Korean Baptist Church By Lela Garlington garlington@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2349

Wan Ho Song was someone you might regret not meeting. During Friday night’s memorial service at the Korean Baptist Church in Collierville, 200 to 300 friends and family each took a single lower from the loral arrangements and paid their respect by gently placing them on his cremation box. Almost all of Mr. Song’s service was in Korean, but visitors couldn’t mistake the well-known Christian hymn “Blessed Assurance� as the congregation sang in Mr. Song’s native language. Mr. Song, one of the founders of the Korean Baptist Church and the owner of S & I Cleaners, died of colon cancer March 4. He was 71. For 20 years, Mr. Song served as an unpaid lay pastor. Every Sunday after the services ended in Collierville, Mr. Song drove 100 miles to minister to a
