Memphis Suffers Loss of Two Former Legislators
10/22/2019 9:05am

Even as members of Shelby Countys political community, Democrats and Republicans alike, were mourning the death on Sunday of one former legislator, Rufus Jones, a member of the state House of Representatives from 1980 to 1996, they found themselves having to deal with the loss of another on Monday, former state Senator Reginald Tate, whose tenure in the state Senate ran from 2006 to 2018. Both Jones and Tate served as Democrats Jones during a period in which his party commanded a comfortable majority in his chamber and in the legislature at large, Tate during an era of Republican control of both the Senate and the General Assembly. Both Jones and Tate had business backgrounds, Jones as a member of a South Memphis family with grocery interests, Tate as president/CEO of an architectural firm. Each of them was personally popular on both sides of the aisle, and each served during period of political controversy that tested their commitment to pure partisanship. Jones case was less demanding in that regard. Along with a majority of other legislative Democrats, he found himself working in harmony with Republican Governor Don Sundquist in an effort, ultimately unsuccessful, to pass a state income tax. Representative G.A. Hardaway, chair of the Legislative Black Caucus and often a Democratic spokesman at large, sized things up this way: Rufus E. Jones served as a ready and willing source of reliable and sound advice for myself and other legislators. Our families were close, and that allowed me to personally witness and learn from an excellent exemplar of personal conduct, professional success and civic leadership. Tates situation was different. Lacking any party background as such, he had the support of his neighbor Sidney Chism, an influential Democrat and sometime party chairman, when the county Democratic Committee had to find a substitute nominee in 2006 for the Senate seat vacated by incumbent Kathryn Bowers, who would be tried as a suspect in the FBIs Tennessee Waltz corruption sting. Tate was nominated and won. He entered the Senate during a time when control of that body was swinging from Democrats to Republicans, and he seems to have perceived his duty, both to himself and to his district, as that of maintaining good relations with the soon-to-be dominant GOP. Legislative Republicans, for their part, made sure to get him aboard key committees. Increasingly, he was seen by fellow Democrats to be over-stepping political boundaries even to the point of becoming a board member of the American Legislative Exchange Council ALEC a right-wing mill for ultra-conservative state legislation. Matters came to a head in 2018, when Tate was up for reelection to a fourth four-year term. Not only had he aroused the ire of his party mates with his ever-increasing number of conservative votes, he was overheard on a hot microphone apparently uttering profane criticism of his fellow Democrats.It was less a judgment on his part than a sign of frustration as he saw one after another member of his party caucus side openly with his Democratic primary opponent in 2018, Katrina Robinson, an accomplished newcomer and proprietor of a nursing school. It cost him Tate would go down to defeat by a 2 to 1 margin, Robinson polling 14,140 votes to his 6,464, and she would go on to serve effectively as a member of the Senate Democratic minority. Still, there was little rejoicing in party ranks at Tates defeat. Even those who were opposed to his politics remained personally fond of the man whose people skills were of the highest order. Karen Camper, the Democrats House Leader, was a particular friend, as was Democratic caucus chair Raumesh Akbari, who said, No matter what the legislative issue was, he found a way to work with folks from both sides of the aisle and always thought of Memphis first. Senator Tate had a way of always making you smile and I know hes smiling down on all of us today. Shelby delegation chair Antonio Parkinson noted, Senator Tate left an indelible mark on the state of Tennessee and its citizens through legislation that he sponsored and cosponsored over his many years at the Tennessee Legislature. Senator Sara Kyle, who had been an explicit critic of Tate, said Senator Tate did many good things for the citizens of Shelby County during his time in the General Assembly and I was shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. We will all miss his smile and good sense of humor. And Robinson, his electoral conqueror, also weighed in: This is a sad day for Shelby County and our entire state. Thanks for 12 years of service to District 33. Funeral arrangements had not been announced at press time.

Bluff City Law Characters Party with Bluff City Characters
10/21/2019 3:23pm

Bluff City Law cast members mingled with Bluff City party-goers at recent events. Guests chatted and took photos with Jimmy Smits at the October 18th grand opening of Back D at Mi Yard, Karen Carriers new open air restaurant behind The Beauty Shop Restaurant. Smits, who plays Elijah Strait on the show filmed in Memphis, entered through the back gate around 8:30ish. Wearing a cap, he still was recognizable. And he was friendly and accessible to guests who wanted their photos taken with him. It was great to see Smits just standing around at a party with people strolling up to him and carrying on a conversation. Josh Kelly, who plays Robbie, was easy to spot in a white turtleneck and a colorful jacket. The party turned into something of a cast-and-crew party for the show. Camera people and others involved with the TV series seemed to enjoy themselves at Carriers new restaurant, which has all the signs of being a new hot spot. Movies also are shown on a wall at Back D at Mi Yard. Mystery Train played during the party. Carrier was pleased with the event. It was so fun, man, she says. It was like the perfect storm. Everything came together. I couldnt believe it. Guests dined on samples of the rotisserie meats she will be serving atBack D at Mi Yard.They were served in little bamboo containers with the nut dusts and salsas that will go with the meat and fish. The event was supposed to end at 8 p.m., but Carrier kept it going until 10 p.m. Some of my staff are working on the movie. They thought they were going to be off work at 6:30, but they pushed it to 8. They said, Can you please leave it open They ended up coming about 8:30. And it was great. Carrier made food for a scene in the pilot for Bluff City Law. I did a big spread a scene before they picked it up on NBC. She made probably 25 dishes. So much food on that show. It was a funeral scene. A wake. They made tenderloin, deviled eggs, and shrimp, she says. During the party, Smits told Carrier he remembered her making all that food for the show. It was pretty cute, she says. Back D at Mi Yard will open to the public at 5 p.m. October 23rd. More Bluff City Law cast members showed up at Art on Fire, which was held Oct. 19th at Dixon Gallery and Gardens. The annual outdoor event featured fire dancers, food from area restaurants, a bonfire, and live entertainment. Caitlyn McGee, wearing a long skirt, black jacket, and white high-top Chuck Taylors, posed for photos and talked with guests. McGee plays Sydney Strait. Jayne Atkinson, who plays Della Bedford, also was affable. She attended with her husband, Michel Gill. MaameYaa Boafo, who plays Briana Johnson,and Michael Luwoye, who plays Anthony Little, were among the guests. Art on Fire celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. The fire dancing was provided by the Memphis Fire Tribe. Grace Askew and the Mighty Souls Brass Band took care of the musical entertainment. Also included were a silent auction and a Hot Off the Wall art sale. Proceeds from the event directly support Dixons education outreach programs.

Mempho Day Two: Valerie June Honors a Fallen Friend & More
10/21/2019 1:50pm

Before this past weekend, the last time I listened to Valerie June was in a tiny art shop in Paparoa, New Zealand at the end of May with my wife and sister.The Memphis-raised alt-folk star was playing on the stereo, and the shops owner excitedly described herself as a big fan. We were just as thrilled to let her know that June was from our neck of the woods.She was back there yesterday, playing what was arguably the finest set of Memphos second day at Shelby Farms Park. Wearing a blue-purple frock and sparkling pants, June came armed with her famously unmatchable sense of positivity and the ability to show her hometown audience why people like Bob Dylan think shes absolutely the bees knees.From Shakedown to Astral Plane, June played all her big hits, but it was her heartfelt tribute to Mary Burnsthat really put the hook in. Burns, thebeloved owner of Cooper-Youngs Java Cabana who died this month after battling lung cancer, played a major role in Junes life. June played her first ever gig at the cafe, was close with Burns until the end and last night, played the 2013 track Somebody to Love on banjo to honor her friend.You look around the world and you find your people, June told the crowd. You find your heart people - your soul people. Mary was one of those for me. Im not going to cry, she continued, instead Im going to think about her spirit. That Memphis spirit. That pull yourself up by your own bootstraps spirit. That if the world dont believe in you, believe in yourself spirit.Her sets conclusion - which saw her joined by iconic local musician Hope Clayburn for Working Woman Blues was the perfect cork for her hour on stage.Before June performed, local favorites The MDs, paying tribute to Booker T & the MGs, were the pick of the afternoon acts. Afterwards, it was alt-country headliner Brandi Carlile that deserves the plaudits. At nearly an hour and a half, Carlile nominated this year for six Grammys delivered a sharp, impressive performance to wrap up the festival, pulling numbers from throughout a long career in alt-country. Like the Wu-Tang Clan the night before, Carlile flanked, as always, by long-time collaborators Tim and Phil Hanserothruminated on Memphis musical history how iconic is this town as well as recalling a gig she played in a dive bar near the University of Memphis that saw crawfish heads lying on the floor by the end of the performance.Earlier, the Revivalists provided a spirited set, though lead singer David Shaw was perhaps asked to do too much by his largely immobile band mates, gamely providing the only stage presence. Still, their crowd rivaled that of The Raconteurs the night before. Californian indie popsters lovelytheband disappointed, with lead singer Mitchy Collins seeming to spend more time talking about the band than playing their tunes. Show, dont tell, brother.For me however, June was the needle that really hit the groove. Watching one of Memphis finest recent musical imports doing her thing as the last few rays of weekend light yawned across the festival, its hard to think of a better lasting memory of this years Mempho.

MLGW: Power Restoration Will be Multi-Day Process
10/21/2019 12:36pm

After Monday mornings storm that brought winds of up to 65 miles per hour, Memphis Light, Gas, and Water MLGW officials say they are working to restore power to some 30,000 customers as quickly and as safely as possible. J.T. Young, MLGW CEO and president said that the storm caused significant damage, initially leaving close to 43,000 customers without power. Because of the large number of substations down, as well as multiple downed poles, wires, and trees, Young said that full restoration could take multiple days. However, the goal is to restore 80 percent of lost power by midnight. Additional crews are expected to join the 42 MLGW crews already working later today to assist with the restoration process. Theres a lot of damage, as you might imagine, from this storm around Shelby County, really spread out across the county Young said. The utility still does not know the full impact of the storm and will continue to assess the damage, Young added. We understand its not convenient when we have these challenges, Young said. Just make sure youre taking your time as you travel and get around the community. Were doing the best we can to get everyone restored as quickly and as safely as possible. See MLGWs video below to find out more about the restoration process.
