NIT: Creighton 79, Tigers 67
03/22/2019 9:46pm

The first season of the Coach Penny Hardaway Era at Memphis is in the books. The Tigers season came to a close Friday night in Omaha, Nebraska, at the hands of the Creighton Bluejays in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. All five Creighton starters scored at least 11 points in a game that saw the Tigers all but erase a 17-point second-half deficit before surrendering a late 10-0 run that proved decisive for the Bluejays.The five Memphis starters Jeremiah Martin, Kareem Brewton Jr., Kyvon Davenport, Raynere Thornton, and Mike Parks Jr. played their final games in Tiger blue and gray. All but Martin were brought to Memphis as transfers by former coach Tubby Smith. Martin scored a game-high 20 points and became only the fifth Memphis player to score 700 points in a season. Hardaway was the second in 1992-93.Martins scoring and a pressing defense allowed the U of M to close within two points 54-52 with just over ten minutes to play in the game. Thornton and freshman Tyler Harris each drew offensive fouls to help fuel the surge. But the comeback stalled shortly after Davenport fouled out with more than eight minutes still on the clock. Harris finished with 11 points and fellow freshman Alex Lomax added 10.Creighton improves to 20-14 and will face the winner of Sundays TCU-Nebraska game in the NIT quarterfinals. The Tigers finish the season 22-14, the programs most wins since the 2013-14 campaign, the last time Memphis reached the NCAA tournament.

U of M Announces New Tuition Structure
03/22/2019 3:18pm

University of Memphis U of M officials announced major changes to the schools tuition structure on Friday that could make education there more affordable, more predictable, and more uniform. Beginning in the fall semester, U of M will implement its Access Memphis initiative that will lock in tuition costs for incoming freshman, provide free classes after 12 hour credit hours are paid for, and make tuition rates uniform. The university also said that about 86 percent of the students who received financial aid had 100 percent of their tuition and fees covered. By 2021, webelieve we will be covering all tuition/fees for these qualifying students by the fall 2021.Heres how the university described the major components of Access Memphis Friday afternoon:Guaranteed Tuition Plan All incoming first-time, full-time freshmen will be eligible to enroll in our guaranteed tuition plan, which assures that they will lock in the Fall 2019 tuition rate for eight consecutive regular semesters if they take at least 12 student credit hours per semester. Tuition Cap Resident undergraduate students will only pay for 12 credit hours. All credit hours above 12 are free of charge. Resident graduate students will only pay for 10 student credit hours. Graduate credit hours over 10 are free of charge for resident students. Uniform Tuition Rates Students, regardless of whether they are taking traditional on-ground/in-person or online classes, will pay the same tuition rate. Here are of U of Ms full comments on the move: Among the core values at the University of Memphis are student success and access, along with diversity and inclusion. Over the past five years, the University of Memphis has had the lowest tuition/fee increases in the state of Tennessee and dramatically improved overall affordability in a rapidly changing higher education landscape. More than 50 percent of first-time freshmen at the University of Memphis are eligible for Pell grants i.e., families with household incomes under $50,000. For Fall 2018, roughly 25 percent of our incoming first-time freshman cohort of 620 students came from households with an income threshold of $50,000 or less and were eligible for Hope scholarships. Last year, 86 percent of these students had their tuition and fees fully covered by Pell, Hope, and U of M institutional aid. We are committed to continuing to expand these numbers each year and believe we will be covering all tuition/fees for these qualifying students by the fall 2021. The University of Memphis commitment has always been, and continues to be, one of delivering high-quality educational programs to all of our students at the lowest possible cost. Toward this end, the U of M recently approved and will be implementing the following beginning fall 2019 as part of our Access Memphis initiative.

A Great Day for the Irish - and Beale Street. And more!
03/22/2019 3:15pm

The 46th annual Silky Sullivan St. Patricks Day Celebration was a great day for the Irish and everyone else who attended the parade, which was held March 16th on Beale Street. JoEllyn Sullivan, widow of the late restaurateur Silky Sullivan and owner of Silky OSullivans on Beale Street, was pleased with the event. No doubt one of the best, she says. The weather was gorgeous. We had 90 different units in the parade. And we had four riding crowned kings. Our reigning king Joe Birch did a fabulous job. Last years king, Ed Galfsky, Carnival Memphis executive director, also was in the parade. We feel once a king, always a king. Ellen Phillips was queen. She teaches hula hoop lessons. Paula Raiford was grand marshall. We have such a long relationship. She and her father were so supportive of all we do on Beale Street and Silky Sullivans. Kiss Me Im Paula Raiford instead of Kiss Me Im Irish was written on Paulas shirt. As for her title, JoEllyn says, I am the principal liaison with the Irish Eyes of Memphis. The parade, which was named in Silkys honor, is put on by the Irish Eyes of Memphis and the Beale Street Merchants Association. Its such a wonderful thing when you see all the diversity in the crowd. Youre looking at old people, young people, geographical, age, cultural diversity. Its all about the green. Its such a wonderful opportunity for people to share a smile and share some fun. ................ Sarah Lynn Foster is the 2019 queen of the Germantown Charity Horse Show. Foster, daughter of Andrew and Valerie Foster, was introduced at the 2019 Queens Ball, which was held March 2nd at the Hilton Memphis. She was escorted by her father and Ben Wuller. Foster is a freshman at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where she is majoring in environmental policy. She will hold court during the Germantown Charity Horse Show which will celebrate its 71st anniversary June 4th through 8th. Eighteen princesses were presented at the Queens Ball, which included dinner and dancing. Kindred Place formerly The Exchange Club Family Center is the horse shows benefiting sponsor. ................................. Not all of the restaurateurs at the 8th annual A Taste of CBHS were graduates of Christian Brothers High School. Some, including Ryan Trimm, whose restaurants include Sweet Grass, 117 Prime, and Sunrise Memphis Frank Grisanti from Frank Grisanti Italian Restaurant Armando Gagliano from Ecco on Overton Park and Libro and Mike Garibaldi from Garibaldis Pizza were, but others just supported the school with their culinary expertise. Also on hand were CBHS alums Clark Orkiese and Will Goodwin from Crosstown Brewing Co. Ken Kimble, CBHS director of advancements, describes the event as the biggest one weve ever had. A big success. Thats in terms of attendance more than 500, food and drink booths 39 and dollars raised more than $40,000, Kimble says. And more sponsorships. One of the things we added this year was the sponsors tent, Kimble says. We had private wine selection from Athens Distributing. The Aaron family are Christian Brothers guys. That was a big hit. Larkin Grisanti, a 1993 CBHS grad, and his wife, Catherine Duncan, were event chairs. ....................... What Goes Around, Comes Around to Support The Childrens Museum of Memphis was the theme of this years Cirque du CMOM, which was held March 2nd. Universal Crush performed, a silent disco was held and food was prepared by local chefs. And the Memphis Grand Carrousel went around and around with smiling guests. ............... The third Military Masquerade, held March 9th at Memphis Botanic Garden, was hosted by the Alpha Omega Veterans Services, a non-profit charitable organization that helps homeless and disabled veterans. The event, which drew more than 120 guests and raised more than $50,000, featured live and silent auctions, entertainment by The Mighty Souls Brass Band, the QCG aerial performers, and cuisine from chef Kelly English of Second Line and Restaurant Iris. ARS/Rescue Rooter was the Medal of Honor sponsor. Cordell Walker is Alpha Omega Veterans Services executive director. Stephanie Beliles was event chair. ................ More than $2,100 was raised for youth ministries at Calvary Episcopal Church at the inaugural Krewe of Calvary Gumbo Cookoff. We had nine different gumbo krewes enter, says Gabbie Munn, youth ministries director and event founder. Over 100 parishioners and guests attended. In addition to the gumbo, King cake, pancakes, sausage, and even pralines were included in the NOLA-esque fare. Guests dined while Munns dad, Lloyd Hurricane Munn, performed on guitar. He was joined for a bit by Calvary rector Scott Walters, also on guitar. There was no admission charge, Munn says. It didnt cost to come sample, but we encouraged people to use their dollars to vote. The winning gumbo was based on how much money was raised in a teams donation bucket. The La Baguette Brothers, a Bible study group, took first place. Also getting in the Mardi Gras swing were Allison and Alan Crone, who opened their home for their annual Mardi Gras party, which was held March 2nd. Alan is senior policy advisor to mayor Jim Strickland. The party featured Cajun-themed food and Mardi Gras decor. ................. ............... About 500 people attended the Memphis Heart Ball, the Memphis Heart Association fundraiser held February 23rd at The Peabody. It was the most impactful Heart Ball weve had with approximately 500 people in attendance, says Libby Perry, American Heart Association communication director. The event included live and silent auctions. Burning Las Vegas performed. Dr. Roy and Lydia Bors Koefoed were event chairs.

Farce Meets Horror in a Top Notch Radiant Vermin
03/22/2019 2:26pm

Philip Ridleys Radiant Vermin is a comedy about a newlywed couple discovering the dream-home theyve always wanted can be theirs, if theyre willing to do what it takes. What it takes is both awful and potentially in the service of some grander, even more awful agenda. Think Whose Line Is It Anyway meets American Psycho but British, all rolled up in a gloriously ham-fisted metaphor for a related set of familiar urban plagues. Storytelling techniques eliminate the need for sets and costumes. Shocking events are shared directly with the audience via light narration and flashbacks, with three actors taking on all roles. Things come to a head in a climactic garden party from hell, when neighbors whove all recently moved into the almost mysteriously trendy area converge. With its terrific cast leading the way, Quark Theatres creative team plays every note in this darkly comic aria perfectly, delivering surprise laughter and even more surprising flashes of tenderness. Michelle Gregory, Lena Wallace Black, and Chase Ring make up the tightest ensemble in town. They pull off an energetic balancing act that threatens to soar too far over the top, but stays just grounded enough for the human stakes to matter. Whats the worst thing you ever did for security Comfort Luxury Did you even know you were doing it And who are the real rats These are some of the questions at the core Radiant Vermin, a show that gets in its audiences face bit, while spoofing some contemporary British problems that sound awfully American. Radiant Vermin is a kind of Macbeth for moderns exploring creature comforts, and how they help us manage guilt and other unpleasant feelings. It asks us who the real rats are. Radiant Vermin is at Theatre South through March 31. I cannot recommend it enough. More details are available here.

State: Keto, Paleo Diets Boon to Tennessee Farmers
03/22/2019 1:32pm

New diets high in protein are giving lift to Tennessee meat producers. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture TDA reported Thursday that demand for Tennessee meat is on the rise thanks to protein-packed diets and that the trend is expected to continue. The sale of animal and animal products already accounted for nearly 40 percent of Tennessee agricultural sales in 2017, TDA said. Those sales generated $1.4 billion in revenue. We have seen a change in what people want on their table, said Elaine Dustin of Belfair Farm in Wayne County. Several consumers are following the keto diet, which includes meats that are trimmed with a small amount of fat and meat that is well marbled. Thats making grain-finished meats a consumer favorite. Farmers told TDA that they are seeing an increase in demand for beef, especially. A three-ounce serving of beef about the size of an iPhone provides more than ten essential nutrients, including protein, iron, zinc, and vitamins B12 and B6, said Valerie Bass, executive director of the Tennessee Beef Industry Council. One serving of beef contains about half of your daily value for protein in an average of 170 calories. To find a local producer near you, visit www.picktnproducts.org.
