Academic All-Stars Seven of 11 area scholars to join exclusive list have local ties

By Linda A. Moore 901-529-2702

Perfection is rare. But for Keyuree Satam, it was achievable. Satam, who lives in Collierville and a senior at Lausanne Collegiate School, managed to score a perfect 36 on the ACT, a perfect 2400 on the SAT and a perfect score of 5 on advanced placement tests in six subjects. She has a 4.623 weighted grade-point average. (A weighted GPA gives a student ive points for an A instead of the four points in a regular class.) That, along with her an extensive list of accomplishments, helped to make her one of 11 recipients of The Commercial Appeal’s Academic All-Stars Awards. “Honestly, I was very surprised when the thing came up with my name,” said Satam, who was rec-

ognized as an All-Star in general scholarship. “I’m really excited. Also, this is a really nice trophy. It’s going to go in the middle of the shelf in my room.” The program is in its eighth year, and more than 500 students, parents, teachers and supporters attended the awards luncheon last Thursday at the Hilton Memphis. The Memphis-area high school students were recognized for excellence in academics, leadership and community service. The students are nominated by their schools and selected by a panel of judges from Rhodes College, Christian Brothers University and the University of Memphis. Collierville High School led all schools with three winners and seven of the 11 winners live in Collierville or Germantown.

Suburban mayors met with Shelby County Sherif Bill Oldham on May 1 to work out plans for funding deputies at the new municipal school districts. At issue is Oldham’s previous stance that his department would provide deputies at no cost in Shelby County Schools, but would charge to provide them for the new districts. Bartlett Mayor Keith McDonald said he wanted to make sure suburban taxpayers weren’t being treated as “second-class citizens.” “I don’t think that was the intent,” McDonald said after the meeting. Several of those attending the meeting said their concerns were adequately addressed. “In the end, Sherif Oldham said the Sheriff’s Department is going to be there for us,” Arlington Mayor Mike Wissman said. “We just have to work some things out.” Oldham said: “It was a very productive meeting. They had some very good points, and we walked out of there in agreement.” While most of the suburban systems are still wrestling with the funding of the oicers, and plans must be approved by superintendents and school boards, then reviewed by the legislative bodies as part of the budget process, Germantown oicials say they have worked out a

The Collierville Fair on the Square had most everything you’d expect of a town festival — including all manner of bouncy castles, fried foods and bejeweled birdhouses — and quite a few things you might not — like a mechanical bull and some good old-fashioned sword ighting. Though, to be fair, it’s less of a sword ight than it is a highly skilled game of tag, said fencing instructor Tom Knowles after his

well-attended demonstration on May 4. Now in its 39th year, the weekend festival drew thousands out into the sunshine to enjoy the uncharacteristically good weather during the irst weekend in May. It was Knowles’ first time hosting a fencing demonstration at the town fair but he, joined by his assistant Phillip Geyer, succeeded in capturing more than a little enthusiasm from many of the kids watching them thrust and parry their way along the pavement. “Normally when you see

In the News Shelby County Primary eleCtion

luttrell, malone to face of for county mayor Chism, Billingsley win commission primaries The Commercial Appeal

Former County commissioner Deidre Malone defeated her two opponents in the Democratic primary, and will face Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell in the Aug. 7 election. Malone garnered 35.8 percent of the votes cast, compared with 32.7 percent for Rev. Kenneth

Whalum Jr. and 31.2 percent for County Commissioner Steve Mulroy. “We’re ready for Mark Luttrell, and I think he knows it,” Malone said. Malone, 51, will attempt to unseat incumbent Luttrell, who predictably sailed to an easy victory in the Republican primary. Luttrell received 96 percent of the tallied votes against perennial candidate Ernest Lunati. “It’s been a quiet primary for


me,” Luttrell said. “I’ve just been trying to let the other side decide who they’re going to run.” In other races, David Reaves, who got 49 percent of the votes, secured the Republican nomination and with it the District 3 seat, ahead of Sherry Simmons who got 42 percent, Kelly Price with 5 percent and Naser Fazlullah with 4 percent. Reaves credits the win to the work he’s done for the past four years on the Shelby County School Board and the eforts of

his campaign workers. “It’s the teachers who believed in me and what we’ve done on the school board, it’s the parents who we’ve served for the past four years, family and friends who worked on the campaign,” Reaves said. “Just those who have been appreciative of the effort for the past four years and believed in me.” Republican George Chism will represent District 2 on the commission, winning with 55 percent of the vote against Da-

vid Bradford Jr., who received 45 percent. Commissioner Mark Billingsley won the Republican nomination for District 4 with 63 percent, beating Ron Fittes, with 37 percent. Billingsley will face Democrat Jacqueline D. Jackson in the general election. She went unchallenged in the primary. Billingsley was appointed to the commission in January, illing the seat that was vacated by Lakeland Mayor Wyatt Bunker.

deal with Oldham’s oice. Germantown Police Chief Richard Hall said he spoke with Oldham last week to say he didn’t think it was fair for the municipal schools to have to pay for the deputy at Houston High School. Germantown has an oficer at Germantown Middle and High schools, two of the three schools within Germantown city limits that will remain with Shelby County Schools. Hall agreed to keep his oicers there, without asking for payment from Shelby County Schools, and felt Shelby County should do the same with its deputy at Houston High. “We’re going to do a swap,” Oldham said. “(Hall’s) going to leave a guy (at Germantown High), and I’m going to put one in Houston.” The use of deputies in the suburban school systems opening this year can take on many forms. For example, Lakeland and Arlington don’t have police departments and rely on the Sherif’s Department for enforcement within their boundaries. Several mayors agreed there was some confusion associated with the sherif’s budget presentation to the Shelby County Commission last month, when Oldham said the municipal school districts would have to pay deputies’ salaries to keep them in the middle and high schools. The discussion implied that Shelby County Schools would not have to pay for oicers assigned to campuses in the overall county system. That didn’t sit well with suburban mayors, who argued their residents pay county property taxes just like Memphis residents, who will make up the bulk of students in SCS. The suburban leaders questioned why their school systems had to pay for the school resource oicers. Oldham said the SCS cost is covered by the Safe Schools Grant. The suburban leaders said they will seek similar funding. Most agreed Oldham’s presentation and intent were misunderstood. “It was probably my lack of political acumen,” Oldham said, saying he didn’t know the suburban school boards and superintendents are part of the review process.

What a kick! Great weather blesses opening weekend of monthlong memphis in may festivities By Bob Mehr 901-529-2517

The 2014 Beale Street Music Fest continued with a third straight day of warm temperatures and sunny skies on May 4, an uncommon but very welcome development for the 38th edition of the event. If this year’s lineup was in some ways a letdown — with less star power at the top and less intrigue in the middle — it was ofset by perfect weather conditions. “This is the way the festival should be, this is why it was started in May,” said Memphis in May president and CEO Jim Holt. “Certainly, the weather has an impact number-wise, but also impacts everyone’s enjoyment. It’s better than walking around in mud or, as was the case last year, arctic cold.” Although attendance numbers were still unknown and sales igures won’t be out until Memphis in May’s iscal year concludes in July, organizers seemed to

Germantown, has a 4.39 weighted GPA and spent ive years studying Latin and two years studying Mandarin Chinese. She earned a magna cum laude distinction on the National

be generally pleased with the results. While Holt acknowledged that advance three-day ticket sales were down, single-day sales were up “dramatically.” He attributes that in part to the weather, but mainly to the particular dynamics and breakdown of this year’s lineup. “We had some acts booked that had big crowds, but whose fans might not want to go all three days,” said Holt. “Friday night we had an incredibly potent lineup. It drew a mobile, hipster-type crowd for Foster the People, Pretty Lights, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Grouplove.” “Then on Sunday, for example, we had a stellar hard rock stage, with Avenge Sevenfold headlining, but there wasn’t three days of that, so those folks decided, ‘We’ll just go Sunday.’” Overall, the consensus was that Kid Rock and Avenge Sevenfold, who headlined the Bud Light Stage on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, drew the festival’s biggest crowds over-

all. Holt added that organizers expect postfestival numbercrunching to reveal that Friday — which featured a massive turnout for rapper Snoop Dogg — would be the biggest night of the festival. “The event is continuing to draw strong,” said Holt. “I’d always like to have a few more people here. But I think it’s important to reinforce the city’s musical heritage. And we feel we do that successfully, while also being the most diverse festival of this kind.” Behind the scenes, the lack of rain meant a lot less panic and logistical maneuvering, leaving the staf and volunteers able to focus on dealing with the basic functions of the festival rather than damage control. “When you see staf walking around with smiles, you know it’s been a good weekend,” said Holly Ford, Memphis in May’s new director of marketing. Ford, who took over for 15year Memphis in May veteran Diane Hampton — who left the organization last July — said the festival had visitors from a dozen countries and all 50 U.S. states, with the highest concentration, as ever, coming from Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.

DJ thwarts phone store break-in by using his car horn

By Renee Davis Brame Special to The Weekly

Caregivers may reap benefits of service By Lela Garlington 901-529-2349

Dana Schillawski of Germantown felt guilty about putting her mother in an adult day care center for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s. But she quickly found on the two days her mother, Joyce Aliperti, was at Page Robbins Adult Day Services in Collierville, Aliperti wasn’t bored and enjoyed making new friends. In addition, over time Schillawski’s own health improved when she didn’t feel as much stress from being a round-the-clock caregiver. For the past 18 months, Aliperti is now at the center four days a week from about 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. “If

we didn’t have Page Robbins, we would have probably put my mother in a nursing home. It’s been a godsend,” said Schillawski, 51, who worked in sales for 20 years before becoming a full-time caregiver three and half years ago to her mother and her two teenage stepsons. A recent study published online in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry found that family caregivers show an increase in the beneicial stress hormone DHEA-S on days when they use an adult day care service for relatives with dementia. Researchers at Pennsylvania State University and the University of Texas at Austin found that DHEAS controls the harmful

efects of cortisol and is associated with better longterm health. “This is one of the irst studies to show that DHEAS can be modiied by an intervention, which, in our case, was the use of an adult day care service,” said Steven Zarit, distinguished professor of human development and family studies at Penn State. “We know that caregivers are at increased risk of illness, because of the long hours of care they provide and the high levels of stress,” Zarit explained. “These indings suggest that use of adult day care services may protect caregivers against the harmful efects of stress associated with giving care to someone with dementia.”

Not your Momma’s braces! Less chair time, less wear time, less metal.

DHEA-S or dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, he said, “helps calm the stress response down, prevents tissue damage, and leads to a positive mood. In chronic stress situations, DHEA-S is depleted and cannot do this protective job.” Herbie Krisle, executive director of Page Robbins and also a board of directors member of the National Adult Day Services Association is not surprised by the study’s results. “I am grateful to have the scientiic evidence. We have long known that caregivers beneit from their loved ones attending an adult day service program,” Krisle said. “Oftentimes caregivers postpone their own medical and spiritual needs”

Longtime radio personality Ron Olson’s early morning drive to FM 100 was interrupted last Friday for Olson to break up a break-in. Olson, a morning disc jockey, saw a Germantown city truck inside an AT&T store at 6267 Poplar, astutely realized that didn’t look right for 4:30 a.m. and scared of a pair of would-be burglars wearing ski masks, even chasing them and perhaps their getaway driver in the predawn hours. Germantown officials said the truck at the AT&T store was one of two vehicles and tools stolen overnight from the suburb’s public works complex at 7700 Southern. While they recovered the truck used in the burglary, the second one — a 2011 Ford F350 — was still missing. Germantown police reports indicate a key card is necessary to enter the lot, and there was no sign of forced entry through the gate or the place where the stolen lawn equipment was kept. The stolen equipment, which included multiple backpack blowers, trimmers, edgers, chain saws, pole saws and a generator, was valued at $15,400. In typical Olson fashion, his recounting of disrupting the break-in was rather entertaining, starting with acknowledging he is “like a little cop,” on his early

morning drives down Poplar from his Germantown residence. “It takes a minute for your brain to igure out what’s going on,” he said of the Friday morning case. “I’m like: ‘Why is there a truck in there? Is there a promotion? Are they working on something?’ Then I look inside, and it looks like two guys stocking the shelves.” They weren’t stocking the shelves, they were unstocking them. So with the realization that led him to invoke a “Holy crap, Batman,” he whipped into the parking lot, noted the city of Germantown vehicle and tried to thwart the thieves as safely as possible. “I get on the horn and lay on the horn,” Olson said. “I don’t know what else to do, just to make noise. So I stayed on the car horn and kept honking and honking. That got their attention, and they split.” Olson followed them in his car as they led on foot, eventually running into the Park and Ridgeway area. He saw another car in the vicinity, igured it was their getaway driver and followed that car on a circuitous route before losing it. Police have no suspects in the case. “I’ve been driving to work early in the morning for a long time, and I’ve seen my share of drunk drivers and that kind of stuf,” Olson said. “But I’ve never seen anything like this. This is a irst.”

What do you like most about your school: I love the various PhoToS By KIM odoM/SPECIaL To ThE WEEKLy

After months of rehearsals, Bon Lin Middle School students will present the musical production of “Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr.” The play is filled with charming character like the Gulls, portrayed by sixth-grader Kasidy Landry, and eighth-graders, Victoria Burns and Katerina Helmers.

Bon Lin students to perform Disney classic this weekend

Drama students practiced in costumes and with props just a few days before the production. Some costumes were on loan, like that of Ursula, played by Carly Holt, which was borrowed from Farmington Elementary School.

By Kim Odom Special to The Weekly

A cast of 36 talented Bon Lin Middle School Drama Club students will take stage Friday evening to present one of three magical performances of “Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr.” The hourlong musical, directed by the school’s choir and theater arts director Cynthia Wieland, is designed for middle school-aged performers. Wieland has been at Bon Lin Middle for four years and this will be the fourth musical she has directed. The production of “The Little Mermaid Jr.,” will feature songs from the award-winning animated ilm, along with three new songs from Broadway’s production. Under Wieland’s direction, students have been rehearsing after school several times a week and on Saturdays. Now that they’re down to the wire Wieland says the cast is ready, excited, and can’t wait for opening night. Seventh-grader Caroline Morath was cast as Ariel. Morath says although she has participated in school talent shows, this will be her irst school musical. The honors choir student is thrilled to take stage in a character she has loved since

the irst time she saw the movie. The biggest challenge for Morath has been getting into the character. Morath says it helps that she relates with the character of Ariel. “She is very curious and so am I. I like to learn everything I can just like Ariel does,” she added. The common personality trait between the vibrant Disney character and the talented drama student has helped Morath bring Ariel to life in a sincere way. According to Wieland, getting ready for opening night has been a group efort. “From the making of props, costumes and scenery it has truly been a community event,” she said. “We reached out to some local schools for help with a few items and both Farmington Elementary and TiptonRosemark Academy loaned us some items

from their past productions.” The majority of the set, costumes, and props, were created by students, parents, and Wieland herself. “We have shed literal blood, sweat, and tears while making such items as Prince Eric’s ship, Ariel’s rock, pieces for her grotto, and the list goes on and on,” she adds. “Although it has been hard work, we have had so much fun on this journey,” said Wieland. “I am truly impressed with the natural talent of our lead performers. We had 15 of our students earn spots in the All Southwest Tennessee Junior High Honors Chorus this year, and many of those same students are cast in the show.” Tickets are $5 at the door. Performances will be held at the school, located at 3862 N. Germantown Road, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Staf opens doors to incoming parents, students By Katherine Perry Special to The Weekly

Most elementary schools welcome new parents at the beginning of the school year, usually at a breakfast or an open house. But the teachers and administrators at Bailey Station Elementary just couldn’t wait that long. “With all the changes that come along with a new district, we felt our incoming parents would beneit from knowing as much as possible about us before their children walk through the door in August,” said principal Cindy Tesreau. The events were called “Pop

Into Bailey Station” and “Pop Into Kindergarten.” Each night featured the warm and welcoming sights, sounds and smells of freshly popped popcorn. Tesreau’s faculty invited parents who would be new to BSE to come and tour the building, meet the teachers and get familiar with their new school home. The events took place on two nights April 22 and April 24. April 22 was planned especially for students entering irst through ifth grade, while April 24 was focused entirely to incoming kindergartners and their parents. On both evenings, kids and families enjoyed freshly popped popcorn, guided tours

of the building, question and answer sessions, musical performances provided by the students and extracurricular club stations. Parents also learned about after-school care and summer camp. Bailey Station kindergarten teacher Marci Nobert collaborated with her peers to orchestrate a successful evening for everyone. “More than anything, we want our parents to know why BSE is such a special place. Our school is a place where kids are loved and love to learn,” said Nobert. Katherine Perry is a teacher at Bailey Station Elementary School.


Germantown lutist Lauren Kim to perform at Carnegie Hall By Mylissa Horrocks Special to The Weekly

Evangelical Christian School student Lauren Kim of Germantown picked up a lute for the irst time in ifth grade. Privately coached by local instructor Myung Kim, Lauren was excited to transition from piano to a woodwind instrument. “When I started flute, I thought I was going to hate it, since the notes and method were so diferent from what I knew. But I fell in love with the lute quickly, and I learned not to judge something until I actually try it,” said Lauren. On June 28, Lauren will participate in the Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall.

Hopson refutes claims of no cooperation Germantown denies pulling support for ‘3Gs’ By Jennifer Pignolet 901-529-2372

Shelby County Schools Supt. Dorsey Hopson said he meets regularly with representatives of the municipal districts, despite comments to the contrary from Germantown Municipal Schools oicials. In a letter to his board members, Hopson said his administration has “bent over backward to assist the municipal schools.� “The notion that we are not cooperating with the municipal schools is simply untrue and dis-

appointing,� he said. The Germantown comments came last Wednesday during a work session of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen as Supt. Jason Manuel and his board presented their budget to the city. Board President Lisa Parker told the city “we have no communication with Shelby County Schools� and that the Germantown board and administrators had been barred from the ive schools that they will inherit next month. After the meeting, Manuel said Hopson had asked the municipal superintendents to sub-

mit all communication requests in writing to the Shelby County Schools attorney. Hopson did not comment on the accusation that he has barred Germantown officials from school buildings, but did comment on the request for written documentation. “Since we were going to discuss the transfer of student records and other conidential documents at the meeting, I asked them to put their requests in writing,� Hopson said. “Obviously, given the sensitive nature of the request, we want to make sure we document, analyze and properly vet the requests before responding.�

In a separate comment sent to The Commercial Appeal, Hopson said the city of Germantown is pulling its support for Germantown High School, which will remain a Shelby County School next year. “We are concerned that Germantown has expressed an unwillingness to support Germantown High School students, particularly in the areas of the GHS-TV station and GHS athletics,� he said. “However, we will continue to work with the Germantown leadership and collaborate on opportunities that best serve our students.� City Administrator Patrick Lawton said the city is “abso-

lutely not� abandoning the three Germantown namesake schools. He said the city has agreed to supply a school resource oicer at both Germantown Middle and Germantown High School, as well as crossing guards for all three schools. The city will likely redirect its funding for the TV studio’s capital improvements from Germantown High to Houston High after this year, but Lawton said the city had promised that funding to Germantown High only for this year. An agreement is also in the works for the namesake schools, often referred to as the “3Gs,� to have use of city athletic ields.

Municipal schools’ sharing of some services hits snag By Lela Garlington 901-529-2349

Just when Collierville school oicials were ready to give the city’s mayor and aldermen a irst look-see at their budget Tuesday night, Germantown threw a kink into the school district’s plans. Germantown’s reluctance to be a part of all the “shared services� agreements among suburban school systems is having a ripple efect on the rest of the municipal school budgets. Collierville Supt. John Aitken presented a $60.7 million school budget Tuesday that is projected to have 7,900 students and 711 employees. On Monday night, in a 3-2 vote, the Germantown school board opted out of sharing services with the ive other suburban municipal school districts for nutrition, purchasing and employee beneits. Germantown’s school budget, however, is built around using shared services for planning, network IT, transportation, payroll and PowerSchool program. “I’m very disappointed in Germantown. I thought these (shared service agreements) were ‘no-brainers.’ I don’t understand it at all,� said Collierville school board chairman Mark Hansen. “It’s going to add additional cost to us as well as to Bartlett, Arlington, Lakeland and Millington.� For example, Hansen said, the nutrition services position is responsible for iling administrative pa-

perwork. “It has nothing to do with what’s served in the cafeteria,� he said. “We got into the municipal school business because of a strong desire for local control� — not shared services, said Germantown school board member Ken Hoover. In purchasing, he said, “You don’t have the ability to dictate priorities.� It means the cost of three to six positions likely will be shared among ive municipal districts instead of six. G er m a ntow n has agreed to share bus lot and fuel costs with Collierville in exchange for allowing Collierville’s students to inish up their last years at Houston Middle and Houston High. The six school superintendents had talked about 21 shared positions for business payroll/IT support, employee benefits and IT network connectivity, student management system, nutrition, purchasing and transportation. Had all six municipal districts shared in the services, The costs were to be based on student enrollment. Collierville’s school CFO Anita Hays said she uncertain what inancial impact Germantown’s opting out means for Collierville and the other districts. With Germantown out of the agreements, Aitken said, “It creates operational issues. A lot of stuf is intertwined. This just stalls it. That’s my biggest worry.� Lakeland Supt. Dr. Ted Horrell wasn’t completely surprised by the news. “We were prepared for some additional cost,� he said.

I’m very disappointed in Germantown. I thought these were ‘no-brainers.’� Mark Hansen, Collierville school board chairman



Mindy Fischer to lead new municipal PTA By Jennifer Pignolet 901-529-2372

Mindy Fischer has attended every board meeting and every work session of the Germantown Municipal School District since its inception. Board members have turned to her on occasion during work sessions to ask questions like, “How do you think parents will react to this?� She has stayed until the bitter end of budget discussions, shared services debates and tuition disagreements. So it was no surprise when Fischer was elected the irst president of the Germantown Municipal Council PTA last Tuesday during the council’s inaugural meeting, appropriately held in Fischer’s living room. “There were people who went before us who did it for my children,� Fischer said of her involvement. “It’s a pay-it-forward thing.� About 15 mothers, plus Fischer’s husband, Terry, gathered to charter the council, which will include parents from each of the five municipal schools. Fischer said the council will work directly with the superintendent and the

school board and act as a liaison for the school-level PTA groups. It’s not Fischer’s irst leadership role in the schools. In addition to being a member of this year’s Leadership Germantown class, she is about to end her tenure as president of the Germantown Middle School PTA. Originally zoned for Germantown Elementary and Middle schools, the Fischers have decided to move their two children, now in the ifth

and seventh grades, into the municipal system. She has been straddling the two worlds of the new municipal district and the three namesake Germantown schools left out of the deal. “I’ve never made any bones about the municipal schools was what I wanted,� Fischer said. “But I haven’t run out on (the namesake schools).� In fact, she’s made an efort to include them by holding regular meetings

of the PTA presidents of the eight schools within the city limits. Those meetings too are held at the Fischer house. After Tuesday’s inaugural meeting with a state PTA representative, the Fischers held a reception for the new oicers, PTA members and local elected oicials. Mayor Sharon Goldsworthy praised the parents for their involvement and their recognition of the power of a PTA.

In the days following destructive tornadoes that struck the suburbs of Little Rock and in Tupelo last week, orders for tornado shelters from a Memphis-area company called Tornado Safe went through the roof. With underground models installed in garage loors leading the way, the company received 41 orders in the Tupelo area alone, said Chris Pritchard, who started the business at Agricenter International in 1999 as a sideline to his Brave Security irm. In previous tornado seasons, he’d installed 17 shelters at most. “With these bizarre weather patterns, extreme cold and so forth, people are kind of seeing that these bigger tornadoes can kind of hit anywhere,” Pritchard said. From tornado shelters to standby power generators for homes, to survival kits that can be stashed in closets or car trunks, businesses see demand growing as severe weather raises awareness and loosens purse strings. The biggest drawback: Spikes in sales as the memory of tornadoes, floods and ice storms wanes with the seasons. “When it’s 105 in August and there’s no sign of storms, that’s the time to get a shelter, so you’re prepared, as opposed to now,” Pritchard said. At Benchmark Electric LLC, in Cordova, David Richey said this past winter was great for sales of standby generators. These aren’t your small gasoline-powered models using extension cords to supply electricity, but natural gas or propane-fed generators designed to automatically kick in when the power fails. The cost varies, but $6,000 to

Jodi Walls pushes a box of belongings out of a friend’s house while cleaning up after a large tornado made its way along Clayton Avenue in Tupelo, Mississippi. “It’s our best friend’s house,” Walls said as she cleaned.

$7,000 is an average estimate, said Richey, 39, who started as an electrical contractor in 2004 and introduced standby generators in 2005. “I think the need had kind of always been there,” he said. “People haven’t noticed that these products are afordable and more readily available.” Still, the irst-quarter earnings reported last week by a major generator manufacturer, Wisconsin-based Generac Holdings Inc., shows the ups and downs of the business. Generac’s residential product sales dropped 35 percent for the irst three months of this year compared to last year, when Superstorm Sandy boosted demand. In addition, bitter cold and winter snows in some areas of the country slowed national demand for home standby generators, the product the company is betting on for the future home market. In Collierville, FedEx pilots and neighbors Ken Nix and Bill Arbeiter are in their 12th year of supplying tornado shelters with a business they named TSW Storm Shelters Inc. The TSW stands for “two scared wives” left at home when severe weather struck while their pilot

husbands were on the job, Nix said. TSW has installed almost 1,100 shelters, stretching from six on their own cove in Collierville to Little Rock and Nashville, and into Alabama and Mississippi. They map out their installations and keep in touch with customers, like a woman who e-mailed last week in Arkansas that she was protected by the shelter they put in, Nix said. “Our irst few years were just educating the public,” he said. But weather patterns have deinitely changed, he said, and people no longer think the business was a crazy idea. Nix said that the irm’s shelters, made by a company in Oklahoma, cost $6,200 for a larger version installed in garage loors that seats 10 to 12 people. The seasonally driven company had nonstop orders for about 25 shelters last week. In Oklahoma City, a startup retailer called Homestand Preparation Station opened in March as an outlet for supplies and eduction to prepare for disasters. Investors may spread the model to other tornado-prone areas, including Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee, said Joshua Stratton, an employee.

Janna Hacker and Associates ofering additional group speech therapy lessons By Jennifer Brezina Special to The Weekly

Children in the preschool language group interact while engaging in sensory integration activities.

Interaction with peers is the best way for parents to encourage social and language skills in preschoolers, researchers say, and now children in the Memphis area have more options than ever before. Janna Hacker and Associates, a Germantown-based speech-language pathology and occupational therapy practice, has expanded its group therapy this spring, now ofering additional sessions. “We are dedicated to the children at JHA,” said Janna Hacker, founder of the practice. “The multidisciplinary approach with individual and/or group therapy can make a big diference and ultimately help children succeed in school.” Michele Wilson, a certiied special education teacher

The language group therapy is the only such treatment offered in West Tennessee. “Not every child develops at the same pace,” Wilson explained. “Our groups ofer all of the social beneits, while each child also beneits from individualized therapy. It’s structured and speciically guided by speech therapists to speed progress.” Children ages 3 and older can beneit from the social groups. Children are grouped according to age and skill level, and most go to school in regular education classes. No diagnosis is required. Each week, they work on developing peer relationships and play skills, using a book along with role playing and video modeling to learn appropriate behavior and problem solving skills.

Hot for spring When refreshing your wardrobe, think metallics, pinks and tribals There aren’t many must-have fashions for spring unless you feel a naked midrif or a see-through skirt is essential, in which case you may need more help than we can provide here. There BARBARA are, however, plenty BRADLEY of appealing SENSE OF STYLE and easy-towear clothes to refresh our wardrobes. Big themes are the color pink, shirt dressing, tribal and other wild prints and patterns — sometimes two or more in the same garment — metallics, athletic motifs, and a new wave of minimalism that brings us spare silhouettes and neutral colors. You might want to invest in a white shirt or top, an exotic print or embroidery, a chunky statement necklace, a slip dress, slouchy pants, a pleated skirt or metallic sandals. Shades of pink: You’ve heard about radiant orchid. But the bigger trend is pink in all shades, from warm coral to cool fuchsia so everyone can wear it. There are also a lot of sizzling orange, kelly green and blue. Walk the aisles of Macy’s at Oak Court Mall and see a pink/coral explosion in dresses, tops and even leather purses. Kohl’s does pink from bikinis to lace espadrilles. Collared: Maybe it’s the “Wolf of Wall Street” efect, but businesslike pinstripe and oxford shirts are all the rage. Chico’s has hopped on this trend with shirts in white, colors, prints and chambray, some in wrinkle-free cotton, and in several styles, including long or with tied tails. But Kate Spade at the Shops of Saddle Creek in Germantown is closer to the runway look in pinstripe blue shirts with contrast white collar and cufs. Wild in the city: Bold tribal, animal and jungle prints vie with op-art prints; big, soft lorals; and small, neat geometrics — often with more than one style of print on the same garment. Related to this trend are ethnic-inspired trims such as beadwork, macrame, crochet, embroidery, feathers and fringe. Anthropologie is chock full of this look. ofers “Mexicali” embroideries, peasant blouses and eyelet lace. Many new gladiator sandals draw tribal inspirations as do chunky necklaces. But the latter trend looks short-lived, so get the necklaces cheaply, or invest in something timeless like a primitivelooking piece in stones like those ofered by Brave Design, a local line you can ind on Facebook. Metal urges: It’s cool to be draped in gold and silver fabric. But since we may have limited occasions to enter like Cleopatra, look for it in shoes and bags. Tory Burch goes for the gold and silver in sandals, lats and purses at Joseph in Laurelwood Shopping Center. J. Crew is running with super-shiny “mirror metallic” leather in low-wedge and lat sandals. Get sporty: Athletic inluences are drawn from tracksuits, football jerseys, sweatshirts, Members Only-style jackets, and tennis skirts and sweaters. Tommy Hiliger at Macy’s is doing the tennis look in V-neck sweaters and vests. Sporty stripes are everywhere. In the fold: Pleated skirts and draping pants are giving our bottom halves room to breathe. Expect knife pleats, box pleats, gathers and any kind of lare in skirts.

Rachel Zoe says a mom needs time for herself By Alicia Rancilio Associated Press


Mixed prints and exotic ethnic motifs are liberally mined at Anthropologie in Germantown, including above: skirt ($128), macrame top ($128) and fringed scarf ($48). A tribal style necklace with treated crystals ($295) by Brave Design at Oak Hall.

Think pink, not purple. Macy’s at Oak Court Mall ofers this pink eyelet shift ($169) and orange purse ($228), both by Lauren.

“Soft” pants (also called slouchy, tapered and harem-style) and palazzos

continue to gain ground on skinnies. Dillard’s is all over tribal-print palazzos in its junior collections. Last and least: A strong minimalist trend out of New York is bringing back slip dresses, shifts, tank tops and dresses, unstructured jackets and other pareddown pieces as well as calming colors like head-to-toe white, cream, tan and pastels. A key piece in this area is a white blouse that may be softened with sheer panels or bits of lace found at sites like Perhaps we need this ’90s-style cleansing; we have so long feasted on colors, baubles, rules and prints. But the ’90s, with its dour-faced models and sack-like shapes, is not the favorite fashion period of most Southern women. Perhaps this time we can at least launt our big necklaces.

NEW YORK — If you happen to spot celebrity stylist and designer Rachel Zoe out and about, do not worry. She’s not judging you. The woman responsible for dressing the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Soia Vergara and Jennifer Garner swears she’s no fashion cop when she’s “off the clock,” so to speak. “It ’s f u n ny because I think Rachel wh at people Zoe don’t understand is that I actually am not judging them and I don’t usually notice what people are wearing,” Zoe said in a recent interview. She does, however, get polled by strangers “all the time” looking for a quick style assessment. “I do get asked sort of, ‘What do you think of this dress?’ ‘Is this jacket OK? Wait, I’m so embarrassed; I don’t want to meet you right now because of what I’m wearing.’ And I’m like, ‘Don’t be.’ Style is the best form of self-expression.” Zoe may not be critiquing, but she would like to help people live a more stylish life, in how they dress, entertain or decorate their homes. She’s compiled a book of tips, information and photos called “Living in Style: Inspiration and Advice for Everyday Glamour” (Grand Central Publishing), which is now in stores. More than anything, 42-yearold Zoe says she wants to inspire moms to put themselves higher on their own to-do lists by taking “5, 10, 15 minutes, however much time you can allow” to “throw some lipstick on, put on a cute jacket, take of your sweatpants.” She is quick to clarify that she’s not saying the average woman needs to be dressed to the nines or red carpet-ready to face the world each day. “I’m not saying put on a cocktail dress to go pick up your kids — you know?” Zoe is a mom to two sons, 3-year-old Skyler and Kaius, born in December. She understands moms often don’t feel they have the time or energy to primp or put thought into their clothing. “It’s a very easy trap to fall into. Trust me, I understand it. I remember when I irst had Skyler and I looked at (husband) Rodger and said, ‘I totally get it now. I’m so tired I can’t even imagine that I have to put on makeup and put clothes on right now.’ It is a lot to think about because you do put yourself last.” By putting a little efort in, Zoe believes you’ll feel better. “It’s not hard, and it’s not what you think it is. Don’t be afraid of it, and it doesn’t take two hours. It takes ive minutes. When you take that extra time, you will feel better. You’ll want to smile. You’ll have more conidence. ... When you look better, you feel better.”


Despite the cost, formal attire worth the money By Lois Fenton Special to The Commercial Appeal

up and buy a Q Isuithavefortoa man black-tie wedding

coming up. I can’t see myself being the only member of the family not appropriately dressed, but I do not, and have never, owned a tux, and certainly am not going to rent one at my age. I want to look correct and to have something that will stay correct in future settings (I don’t want this expense coming up again for at least 10 years). What should I look for?

Congratulations on a wise and grown-up decision. When you are invited to a blacktie event, it is only proper to dress correctly. Classic black-tie dressing is very much on the increase. If you are considering wearing formal clothes, and if you might do so as often as once every year or so, it is deinitely worthwhile to buy your own “dinner


jacket”/“evening suit.” It does not need to be the most expensive one around. Either buy a new one (perhaps on sale) or one from a vintage or “gently used” clothing store. In an “About Men” article in The New York Times, black-tie dressing was the subject: “If there is a world we pass into when we get our irst tux, it is the world of our fathers. To wear the tux is to pay tribute to those who came before, to those who decided that there are certain special occasions worthy of special treatment.” Formal wear is steeped in tradition, a lashback into history as well as a rite of passage, bridging into the future. For that reason, and also because every man looks debonair and terriic in formal attire, enjoy the opportunity. When shopping for a tuxedo, lightweight all-wool fabric and good it are critical. For years of wear and self-assurance, choose

a classic style. The rules: The suit is always black. The shirt is always white with vertical pleats in front and with French cufs. In summer, the jacket may be white; all else remains the same. Jackets are fashioned in one of three diferent collar and lapel styles: Peaked, shawl, and notch. (In truth, staunch traditionalists do not recognize the notch lapel as an acceptable option, because it is customarily part of business suits.) Lapels are either made of satin or grosgrain (pronounced “GROW’-grain”), also known as faille (pronounced “ile”). Either kind of trim is correct, but grosgrain is slightly more elegant and more durable than satin. There are two types of closings — single-breasted and double-breasted. (Since it is an always-in-style option, the single-breasted cut may be preferable.) Choose any of three back cuts

for the jacket: Double vent, single vent, or ventless. Naturally, the trousers match the wool fabric of the jacket. A ribbon runs down the side of the leg; it matches the lapel fabric. Thus, if the suit jacket has a satin lapel, the ribbon is also satin; or they are both grosgrain. A black bow tie and either a cummerbund or a low-cut waistcoat (vest) are part of the overall package. So are shiny black shoes, black calf-length socks, shirt studs, and cuf links. Another note on trousers: This is the one time when cufs are never worn. Historically, the style of wearing cufs on trousers originated in England. They were called “turn-ups.” They resulted from a man’s turning up the bottoms of his trousers to protect them from soiling as he walked around his country estate. Accordingly, men wore cufs on their tweedy suits, but not on their formal wear.


Classic formal wear is timeless and steeped in tradition. No rules or frills, just simple elegance.

The closets of elegant dressers may include more than one set of black-tie attire, but the common ingredient is reined restraint — a timeless, generic style that hardly ever changes. No satin edgings, rules, or lourishes. My advice: Make the women in your life happy. Buy yourself a dashing dinner suit, go to the wedding, and have a good time. I’ll bet you’ll look (and feel) great.

The YMCA at Schilling Farms celebrated its 15th Healthy Kids Day with an Olympic theme. Children and their families got to learn about water safety by learning the proper way to wear a life jacket as well as doing active games. Games included an Olympic challenge course, which included running, jumping and rolling, a javelin throw, curling, cross country skiing, ring toss, discus throw and more. Children got to create Olympic crafts such as a torch, head piece and gold medal and have their faces painted. “Children need to be physically active for 60 minutes each day,” said Pam Hipp, child care director. “Healthy Kids Day helps promote the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle by making good choices when it comes to eating and physical activity.”

Nein Jana poses for a picture with the Olympic crafts he made at Healthy Kids Day.

Other events included two jump rope performances by the Riverdale Ropers from Riverdale School in Germantown. The Ropers gave participants one-on-one jump rope instructions between their performances. There also was a basketball free throw contest and family Zumba. Mayor Stan Joyner declared April 26, 2014 as Healthy Kids Day. Tish Lewis is the community program director YMCA at Schilling Farms.

Hutchison, Houston make state final four

DRAGONS ON FIRE 901-529-2350

This week’s girls state lacrosse semifinals in Memphis will have one very familiar face and one very happy newcomer. Hutchison, the threetime defending Tennessee Girls Lacrosse Association state champion, and Houston both advanced to the inal four last Saturday, with the Sting defeating Ravenwood, 18-7 and the Mustangs holding of Pope John Paul II, 13-10. Top-seeded Hutchison will be the host school for Friday’s semifinals and will play ifth-seeded Ensworth at 2:30 p.m. Thirdseeded Houston will take on No. 2 Franklin at 4:30 p.m. The championship is at 2 p.m. Saturday. Despite playing without senior star Sandy Scott (back spasms) the Sting had little trouble in winning its 40th straight game. Senior Loring Gearhardt led the way with ive goals and an assist.

It’s taken a couple of years, but coach Steven Shipowitz said his Collierville lacrosse team bought in to everything he’s been preaching — and are now cashing in. The Dragons have broken out to a 15-3 record this season, and took a seven-game win streak into Wednesday’s state tournament opener at CBHS. OK, Collierville lost a 13-1 decision to the Wave early in the season. Then there’s that 19-1 defeat to a Memphis University School squad that Shipowitz said, “is from another planet than we live on.” But since a loss to St. Paul’s School in Louisiana on March 30, the Dragons have whupped up on anyone not named CBHS or MUS in the area, including a 6-5 win against Houston for the memory bank. “Our goals were pretty simple to start the season: Beat Houston and make the playofs. But now we feel ready to give CBHS a run,” said Shipowitz, who played lacrosse at Norfolk Prep — and imported it to Alabama where went to college. “I helped start the club team there. Built a goal out of two by four’s so we could practice, and played every position along the way,” he remembers with a laugh. Since coming to Collierville three years ago, Shipowitz said, “It’s taken steps, but the kids trust in what I’ve been saying and now understand what I’m looking for, the fundamentals. I’ve told them from Day 1 we will work the fundamentals and do them until we get it right.” It starts with going for every ball on the ground. “If you do not have the ball, you can’t shoot, and you can’t score,” he said. The other part of the equation is who scores. That would be al-

most everybody. The Dragons, who were 8-12 a year ago, have seven players with 20 plus points, led by senior Dalton Powers with 44 points (28 goals, 16 assists). “We feel we’ve inally stepped into our shoes and are starting to play to our potential,” Powers said. “Coach keeps saying we haven’t gotten this far by playing selish. We share the ball and are reaping the beneits.” Powers was starting to draw interest from schools in the Northeast, lacrosse’s heartland, until he tore left knee ligaments late in the season. He will now go to Alabama on an academic scholarship, and that causes his coach some sadness. “He had the chops, but the recruiters backed of,” Shipowitz said. Powers admits, “I was a little bitter about that for a while — but I guess God had other plans for me so I’ll enjoy this.”

SNAPSHOTS On Monday night, the Houston Mustangs beat the Collierville Dragons, 5-1, thanks to strong pitching and a grand slam by Mary Collins. The game was tied through seven innings until Collins’ homer.

hardt added four goals and two assists while standout eighth-grader Elizabeth Farnsworth chipped in with three goals and ive assists. Houston, meanwhile, advanced to the semiinals for the irst time in school history, scoring ive unanswered goals after trailing 10-8. “Oh my gosh, we’re just over the top,” said Mustangs coach Paige Michael. “We have had an injury (plagued) season but we’re inally coming together and its just fabulous.” Sophomore goalkeeper Daniella Cantu made some key stops for the Mustangs, while captain Ruthie Germann forced a big turnover that helped spark Houston’s decisive inal run. “And Abigail Fuller worked her magic on the draws,” said Michael. “She’s our team MVP and she lived up to her reputation. Last year, we said at our banquet that our goal was to play Hutchison in the title game and now we’re one game away.”

Collierville’s young program enjoying breakout season

Right behind him is sophomore Jared Mai, who has 26 goals, 35 points and a team-high 99 ground balls to go with a 50-percent faceof record. “He’s the turf guy you look for,” Shipowitz said. The rest is a combination of kids who played lacrosse, like sophomore keeper Drew Morgan, or who have come to the game late and taken hold like Jefery Noland, a senior who has 31 points in only his second year with a stick in his hand. Junior J.V. Springer has stepped up with 31 points, and the defense is anchored by senior Drew Bethea, who has gobbled up 67 ground balls, and had 32 takeaways.

WHEELER SHINES AT COUNTY MEET Collierville’s Josh Wheeler was the star performer at the Shelby County track and field meet last Saturday at Houston High School. After winning the sectional decathlon title earlier in the week, Wheeler took first in the pole vault (14-0), long jump (22-8 3/4) and triple jump (45-6 3/4). CBHS won the boys team title, 125-104, over runner-up Houston. Houston’s Sam Kempka won the shot put (57-7) and discus (154-6). Southwind took the girls title, narrowly edging Houston 121.5-116. The Mustang girls that won events were Jasmine Graham (shot put), Erin Lester (discus), Cierra Henderson (100) and the 3,200-relay team. The Class AAA sectional track and field meet will be held next week at the University of Memphis’ South Campus. The running preliminaries and field event finals will be Monday and Tuesday with the running finals Wednesday.

IN TSLA FIRST ROUND MUS defeated Briarcrest 19-4 Tuesday night. Lucas Crenshaw and Patrick DiMento both scored three goals for the Owls. MUS will host MBA Saturday at noon in the quarterinals.

Z-Bo’s future in Memphis is biggest ofseason question By Ronald Tillery 901-529-2353

GRizzlies RosTeR

Mike Conley is getting married. Marc Gasol will again play basketball for Spain. Quincy Pondexter, healed from a broken foot, plans to continue putting in motion a dynamic return. Grizzlies players addressed the media last Sunday afternoon for the last time this season following their Game 7 loss to Oklahoma City. Personal summer plans were easy to discuss with more certainty than team business. Whatever ofseason moves the front oice will make is impossible to forecast. But there will be several storylines to follow, and none more important than the scenario involving Zach Randolph. The veteran forward has a player option worth $16.5 million for the 201415 season. If he exercises the option, then Randolph would play one more year with the Griz and become an unrestricted free agent able to sign with any team during the summer of 2015. If Randolph decides not to pick up the option, he would become an unrestricted free agent in July. At 32, Randolph is faced with the biggest business decision of his career. He could accept the guaranteed money for next season and put of free agency another season. Opting out would allow Randolph to seek another multiyear deal with the Grizzlies. Randolph has purchased a home in Memphis, where he is also raising his children and looking forward to ending his career. Asked if he wanted Randolph back, Coach Dave Joerger said: “Absolutely.” Joerger boasted about his relationship with Randolph and lauded Randolph’s production, albeit slightly diminishing. “He knows he’s loved,” Joerger said. “He knows he’s wanted here.” The Griz would prefer to keep Randolph at a more cap-friendly salary for the next few seasons. There already is a national report suggesting that a three-year deal worth $30 to $35 million is palatable for the Griz. Randolph, however, isn’t tipping his hand. “I’ll let everything play out and let my agent take care of it,” Randolph said. “I made it clear I want to retire here.” The Grizzlies’ core players expressed the same view: They expect Randolph to return. Gasol said he’d intervene in Randolph’s situation only “if it gets ugly.” Randolph isn’t the Grizzlies’ only dilemma in terms of how the roster may shape up for the 201415 season. Mike Miller, James Johnson and Beno Udrih are unrestricted free agents. Memphis must decide whether to exercise a $3 million option on center Kosta Koufos for next season, and there are indications that will happen. Ed Davis is a free agent, whose status in the market

zach Randolph: player option at $16.5 million for 2014-15 Marc Gasol: one year, $15.8 million remaining through 2014-15 Mike Conley: two years, $18.4 million remaining through 2015-16 Tayshaun Prince: one year, $7.7 million remaining through 2014-15 Courtney lee: two years, $11.1 million remaining through 2015-16 Tony Allen: three years, $15 million remaining through 2016-17 ed Davis: Qualifying ofer ($4.3 million) makes him a restricted free agent Kosta Koufos: team option ($3 million) for 2014-15 Quincy Pondexter: Four years, $14 million remaining through 2017-18 Mike Miller: Free agent Jon leuer: two years, $2 million remaining with team option for 2015-16 Jamaal Franklin: two years, $1.7 million remaining with team option for 2015-16 James Johnson: Free agent Nick Calathes: team option for 2014-15 season Beno Udrih: Free agent

only becomes restricted if the Griz extend a $4.3 million qualifying ofer. Davis received inconsistent minutes this season. Even with Randolph serving a suspension, Davis only saw garbage time in Game 7 against Oklahoma City. Davis was in and out of the lineup so much that he didn’t seem like a valued member of the rotation, let alone Randolph’s possible replacement. “I was surprised,” Davis said about his role this season. “Obviously, I want a bigger role next year. Whatever happens, happens.” Whatever happens, the Griz have other issues to address to keep up in the Western Conference. Miller and Courtney Lee gave the team more depth on the perimeter However, the Griz still need more outside shooting and athleticism on the wings to balance their lineups. Pondexter, who sufered the season-ending foot injury in December, can ill some, but not all, of those gaps. “There’s a lot of stuf up in the air,” Joerger said. “The elements are more important than the names as far as improving our playmaking, shooting, IQ and athleticism. We can do some of that from within.” It’s not lost on the players, either, that Joerger wants to play a free-lowing offense more times than not. It’s a concept that the Griz had to ditch after a poor start to the season due to a lack of familiarity and a versatility in the lineups. “We need more playmaking from our wings,” Conley said. “A lot of teams are built so that wings make plays. Once it leaves the point guard’s hands you don’t know who to guard. That’s the way the league is evolving. ... You’ve got to keep up, especially out here in the West.”

Griz center Marc Gasol has a recipe for success next year: “We can’t have slow starts. If you want to be a 56-58 win team, you cannot have slow starts, you cannot start the season slow, because you’re going to have a lot of ground to make up. You have to be ready from the first day of training camp.”


FINAL GRIND 10 bites to chew on as Grizzlies’ season ends By Geof Calkins 901-529-2364

Zach Randolph wants to stay in Memphis, Mike Conley is planning his wedding, Marc Gasol was truly moved by all you folks who showed up at the airport the other night and Dave Joerger is one proud Memphian. These were some of the points made during the Grizzlies media session Sunday. Here are 10 inal highlights and observations: was asked at the begin1sortJoerger ning of the session if he had any of “opening statement.” He did, as it turned out. It even got a little emotional. “We’re in a city that struggles with some things,” he said. “A lot of single-parent homes, unemployment. People just try and work their way out of it, and it’s not easy. We don’t sit and make excuses, this is the town I live in, this is my city, and this is the city that our guys call home. And when they put that jersey on, there is a lot of pride involved and you see that when we didn’t let go of the rope. We kept ighting and ighting and ighting. And the same thing can be said of Game 7 as when we were 10-15. I’m so proud of what they’ve done, and what they’ve overcome this year. This is a special group. And they care. They care about the community, they care about playing here in front of this city and at the FedExForum. I’m proud. I’m proud of our group and what they’ve done this season.”

Memphis Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger reflects on the season as he talks with the media during exit interviews last Sunday at the FedExForum.

about Randolph losing his lift. “I ain’t even got no lift,” he said. “I just got a good touch. That’s forever.” Speaking of forever, Conley 5 will be getting hitched July 5, in Columbus. The only royalty invited will be of the Grizzlies persuasion. Asked what new wrinkles he 6 is going to add to his game this summer, Conley went for the obvious: “A new hamstring,” he said.

As Ron Tillery explains in his story on Randolph, Z-Bo can return to Memphis for the inal year of his contract next season, or can opt out and sign a longer contract with Memphis or elsewhere. The best option for Z-Bo and the Grizzlies would be to reach an agreement on a longer deal for less money. That would give Randolph security going forward, and would give the Grizzlies lexibility to improve the team. Randolph is scheduled to make $16.5 million next year. What if, instead, the Grizzlies and Z-Bo agreed on a three-year deal for $30 million-$36 million? Tim Duncan signed for three years, $30 million. Kevin Garnett and David West signed for three years, $36 million. That seems to be the market for an older, but still productive power forward.

Conley if he would do anything to persuade Randolph to stay. “I don’t think I even need to persuade him, to be honest with you,” said Conley. “He loves the city, loves the people, loves this team, loves his teammates. In my heart of hearts, I think he’ll be back.” Gasol said, “I just assume he’s going to be here.” But would Gasol do anything to intervene? “If it gets ugly, yes,” he said.

Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph has a player option worth $16.5 million for next season. If he chooses not to exercise the option he can become an unrestricted free agent in July.

said. “I love playing. I can see myself being productive, though. This game isn’t about all that high jumping, it’s about positioning.” At this point, someone jokingly asked

In all the conversations about 7 free agency, and possible deals, and changes that might take place during the ofseason, it is striking how much the players apparently trust the new ownership and management group to do the right thing by the team. This was not always the case in Memphis. Indeed, Pau Gasol inally asked for a trade because he was skeptical that a Memphis franchise could really win. By contrast, Marc said Sunday he had complete faith in the current management group. “Yes I do,” he said. “That’s the message they keep sending to me, they want this team to win and they’re going to do everything they can to win. There’s no reason for me not to believe that.” Conley was even more efusive on the topic. “I believe in them 100 percent,” he said. “I think they came in with a goal. They came in and not only had the players’ best interest, but the team’s. Going and getting Courtney Lee and guys that can help change a season. Those are big-time moves that made you feel like they really do care about winning and they want to win now. There’s a trust level and I’m excited because they’ll keep us involved. They’ll call and ask what I think about this and what do I think about that and do I have any input. You get that kind of level and communication going between player to management and even to ownership, it’s unbelievable how they’ve kind of tied that together.” One free agent out there this 8 summer is Marc’s brother, Pau Gasol. I asked Marc if Pau had ever

considered returning to Memphis. “I think right now he wants to test the market,” he said. “It’s the irst time ever he’s a free agent and he actually wants to enjoy that process. He actually wants to be recruited, all the dating, all that stuf, he wants to do that and see if he falls in love.” But would Marc recruit him back to the Griz? “Me? No. He knows what we’re about here in Memphis.” A constant theme was the need 9 to get of to a better start next year. The Grizzlies are going to regret their Game 4 and Game 6 losses for a long time, but they’re also going to regret the sluggish start that contributed to them winding up as a No. 7 seed. “We’ve got to be a more consistent team every night,” said Gasol. “We got used to stop playing at the other team’s level too much. When it’s a good team, we compete. We like that. When we’re supposed to beat the other team, it calls to mind games against New Orleans and stuf like that, the games that you must win, especially in your division. We’ve got to come out better. Come out ready, the way you are supposed to. ... We can’t have slow starts. If you want to be a 56-58 win team, you cannot have slow starts, you cannot start the season slow, because you’re going to have a lot of ground to make up. You have to be ready from the irst day of training camp. And that’s not just to say, I know everybody says that. We have to be ready to play and practice and be coached better than we have.” Finally, lest you ever think 10 that the relationship between a team and its fans doesn’t matter, you should have heard Gasol’s voice wavering when he talked about the crowd that met the Grizzlies charter at Wilson Air after the Game 7 loss. Gasol tends to be matter-of-fact in interviews. He was openly emotional this time. “Let me tell you what,” he said. “We came back last night. It was pretty tough for us. We landed at the airport, Wilson Air, and we had, I don’t know how many people, at least 500 people, more, waiting for us. And cheering. And that means the world to us. Because the last game, Game 6, we were down 20, almost 3:50, almost four minutes to go, and people were leaving. It broke my heart. That we didn’t give enough reasons to stay the whole game, it really hurt me. It really hurt me that we couldn’t pull it of, that we couldn’t give them reasons to stay the whole game. So the fact of coming back home, hurt, not too happy, and seeing people there supporting you, at one in the morning, it means a lot. To me it means a lot personally.”

Driver of the century Racing legend Mario Andretti pits for fans, signs autographs By Marlon W. Morgan 901-529-2792

It has been 14 years since Mario Andretti last drove a race car competitively. But not a day goes by that the legendary driver isn’t involved in something closely related to the sport. Whether it’s continuing his long association with Firestone tires and Texaco/ Havoline as a spokesman, or watching his grandson, Marco, compete in the Indy Racing League, or participating in Honda’s Fastest Seat in Sports Sweepstakes in which a lucky winner gets to ride with Andretti in an IndyCar two-seater to start a race, Andretti simply can’t get enough. “As long as I have breath in my body, I’m going to be involved. No question,” said Andretti, 74, who was in Arlington on May 1 to help Raleigh Tire Auto Service Center celebrate its one-year anniversary and to sign autographs. “It’s been my life since I was a very young teenager. I count my blessings every day for what the sport has meant to me and my family.” Andretti, named the Driver of the Century by The Associated Press, is one of the most decorated drivers in auto racing history, claiming success in NASCAR, as well as Formula One and IndyCar racing. He is the only driver to win the Indianapolis 500 (1969), Daytona 500 (1967) and the Formula One World Championship (1978). “I’m one of the few that have been able to go full circle,” Andretti said. “My first race was in 1959, my last was in 2000. I’ve dodged a few bullets along the way. I was one of the fortunate ones that I only missed

two races in my career out of 876 races, because of injury. Am I lucky, or what? And do I know it?” For Andretti, the memories of his career are too great to list. He won races on five different continents at least once. His post-racing career is just as ambitious as his driving one. In addition to the 1520 national appearances Andretti makes for Firestone and its parent company, Bridgestone, Andretti also tends to his own businesses. He’s vice chairman of Andretti winery in Napa Valley, and owns a chain of gas stations, a Toyota dealership outside Pittsburgh, car washes, car care products, go-kart tracks, a clothing line and video games. He also finds time to enjoy watching his family build on his racing success. After a successful racing career himself, son Michael now owns a racing team that includes his son, Marco. Last week, Marco finished second at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, behind teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay. Four of Michael Andretti’s cars finished in the top 10. “As you can see, I started this whole mess,” Andretti laughed. “It keeps on going. We’re very proud.” As throngs of fans, both young and old, continue coming out to see Andretti, Firestone/Bridgestone couldn’t be happier with their relationship. “I’ve been at several of these where he’ll sit there for hours signing autographs,” said Guy McDonald, region general manager for Bridgestone. “The interaction that he has with the fans is unbelievable. Even though he hasn’t raced in years, everybody knows him, young and old. That’s the amazing part about it.”


Racing legend Mario Andretti (right) jokes with Harvey Russell, 67, during an autograph session at the Raleigh Tire and Auto Center in Arlington last week. “Let me get one of those, and I’ll race you later,” Andretti said, pointing at Russell’s walker.

Polly Speed (left) of Horn Lake, Linda Bailey of Southaven, and Angela Denton of Horn Lake each had Mario Andretti sign their hats. All three are big NASCAR fans — Denton cheers for Tony Stewart while Bailey and Speed pull for Jef Gordon. “He’s the bestlooking one,” Speed said of Gordon. MATT WOO THE WEEKLY


Adam Marshall of Natural Born Grillers in DeSoto County Miss., manned the grill while Chad Collins served up delicious barbecue to guests. Master Chief Steve Cullen of Arlington brought his son Declan, 9, to see Mario Andretti. “It’s a neat thing for (Declan) to come out and meet a driver,” he said. ASHLEY KUMPE THE WEEKLY


Marty Currier of Arlington had a photo taken in 1969 when Mario Andretti won the Indianapolis 500. Currier, who was about 10 years old at the time, was in the stands when Andretti took the checkered lag. Debra Cornelius brought her grandson Grant Godsey, 4, of Arlington to see Mario Andretti. As the two were leaving, they stopped to look at several cars that were on display. Grant’s favorite car was the Corvette Stingray. MATT WOO THE WEEKLY

John Stonecipher “The Encore has a standard 1.4L turbo engine” says John Stonecipher the New Car Manager on the Pike. “This means plenty of power when you need it and great gas mileage all the time! The Turbo is actually manufactured by a company that makes turbochargers for Audi, BMW, and Mercedes.” With leases that start at $199/mo or 0% for up to 60 mos, now is the time to see why Buick is the #2 volume brand globally for GM for the irst time ever!

About Academic All-Stars Now in its 8th year, the All-Stars program’s priority is to demonstrate to students that their accomplishments, discipline, and work ethic are acknowledged and publicized by their community. We hope to inspire these high achievers to embrace Memphis and the Mid-South as the place they want to live and begin their professional careers after college. Each week for 28 weeks, six to seven Academic All-Stars are profiled in full page ads which run each Sunday in The Commercial Appeal. The full page ads also run in The Commercial Appeal’s Weeklies located in DeSoto, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown and Cordova. Winners are selected by geographic areas that include Bartlett, Cordova, Fayette County, Germantown, Collierville, DeSoto County, Millington, Tipton County, Whitehaven, South Memphis, East Memphis, West Memphis, Midtown and Downtown Memphis. The individual schools nominate the students. The Commercial Appeal compiles the nominations. Representatives from area universities judge the students and select the winners.
