Go big with hybrid building
06/17/2019 4:14pm

Vaughn and Vance Zacharias, Kathryn, N.D., put up one of the new hybrid buildings by Morton Buildings. Its called a hybrid because it combines steel trusses with wood post-frame construction. With the pre-engineered steel trusses, its possible to create a clear span of 150 feet and a vaulted ceiling, which allows for taller doors. But the superior insulating, strength and aesthetics of the post-frame construction is maintained.

Keys to a successful sunflower crop
06/17/2019 4:05pm

Tom Young, Onida, S.D., is an old hand at growing sunflowers. The former National Sunflower Association president got interested in sunflowers when his father began growing them in 1974. Today, Young grows sunflowers in a four-year rotation with corn, grain sorghum, winter and spring wheat. He no-tills and uses cover crops. No-till conserves soil moisture and builds soil quality, two key components of successful sunflower yields, Young says.

Tuesday Is International Sushi Day!
06/17/2019 4:00pm

Tuesday, June 18th, is International Sushi Day. Its a day to celebrate sushi, and its day for beginners who dont typically eat sushi to have the chance to try it, says Joanna Lee, a rep with Hissho Sushi, which provides sushi to area Krogers. Hissho Sushi was founded by Philip Maung, who started the company in 1998. According to Hissho, its the second largest sushi franchise in the country. Beyond Kroger, their sushi and other products are available at hospitals, airports, universities, and sports arenas. Across Krogers Delta division, the Hissho sushi is in 63 stores. Across Tennessee, its in 26 stores. For International Sushi Day, sushi will be 25 percent off at Kroger. According to Lee, the shops set up in Kroger are actually franchises. Hissho hooked up with Kroger in 2006, and is now in approximately 1,500 stores. Hissho recently introduce poke bowls, and the Kroger on Union offers a build-your-own bowl. Lee says they are trying to ease new customers into the idea of sushi. A lot of the items have names they are unfamiliar with or ingredients they may not be sure of, you tend to get a little apprehension, she says. So we look for opportunities, such as International Sushi Day, to provide samples. California roll is the entry point for most people. Once people become comfortable, we encourage them to branch out into other things.

Lemoyne-Owen Professor's Brandon Webber Comments Draw Ire
06/17/2019 12:57pm

A Memphis author and tenured professor at Lemoyne-Owen College is receiving backlash for comments about last weeks officer-involved shooting in Frayser. Tom Graves teaches English at Lemoyne-Owen College, a historically-black college. In a Facebook post, he called Brandon Webber, the 21-year-old black man who was shot and killed by U.S. Marshal officers here last week, a fucking idiot. So let me get this straight, Graves wrote. A wanted felon who shot a guy five times was found in Frayser by U.S. Marshals. So, the fucking idiot tries to run over the Marshals with his vehicle then exits the car with a gun. So, the war he starts with a whole gang of U.S. Marshals, everyone an expert shooter ends with him dead as Dillinger. Graves then discusses the community uprising that ensued after the shooting, saying what happened next makes me seethe. A riotous crowd gathers and begins to harass and intimidate law enforcement on the scene, Graves said. Mayhem ensues. People get arrested. Asshole thugs in the crowd fire their weapons. Tear gas. Batons. Shields. Graves continues, criticizing activists and leaders like Tami Sawyer, who Graves said defended Webber. Others relate what a wonderful student he was, Graves wrote of Webber. His Facebook posts attest to thuggery, with him holding up fistfuls of cash, as if he were the king daddy pimp. Defending this man is wrong. He should be condemned for what he was and represented and did. See Graves full post at the bottom of the page. Many people took issue with Gravess post. Some even called for his dismissal at the college: In a comment on another one of his Facebook posts, Graves explained that his original post was only meant for his friends, but that it was screen-capped and shared around social media. Graves adds that he doesnt discuss this stuff with my students. I dont discuss this stuff with my students I teach them writing, Graves said. And I love and respect my students. I did not want all this to get so out of hand. Lots of folks black and white agree with my take on the Frayser incident. Terrell Lamont Strayhorn, vice president of academic and student affairs at LOC said via Facebook that the college is aware of the incident and is working to resolve it. Please know that posts made by individuals do NOT reflect the collective values and commitments of LeMoyne-Owen College, Strayhorn said. The LOC Student Government Associated sent a letter to Graves in response to his comments, calling them appalling. The students said they would like to express our discontentment at the insincerity with which you commented on the Brandon Webber case. While we agree that we do not have the facts of the case, we are in unanimous disagreement with your verbiage and disregard for the impact which your words would have on the community you serve, the letter reads. As a professor at a historically black college, you are keenly aware of the challenges unique to the black/African-American community. Given the experiences of the students you teach, your implicit justification of the unfortunate events which happened have not been taken lightly. The students are calling for a public apology to the students and administration of the college and its stakeholders.

Music Video Monday: ZZ Top
06/17/2019 12:31pm

Today, Music Video Monday takes you back to the beginning. Last Thursday, at Flyer columnist Chris Davis retirement party, we had a conversation about the first independent film from Memphis. The earliest one we could come up with was I Was A Zombie For The FBI. Made in 1982 by a group of Memphis State University students, led by director Marius Penczner, the film is a loving homage to monster B-movies of the 1950s. The ambitious film involved an extensive stop-motion animation sequence of an alien monster that fought the G-Men. In the 80s and 90s, it became something of a cult classic, and counted among its fans no less than Bob Dylan, who saw it during its long run on the late night cable TV music video show Night Flight. Here, in a segment produced for WKNOs screening of the film on Professor Ghouls Horror School, some of the folks involved remember the production. Across town, at the same time Penczner was making his opus, ZZ Top was at Ardent Studios recording their smash album Eliminator. The music videos that made them superstars, like Legs and Sharp Dressed Man,were filmed in Los Angeles. ButPenczner and his crew leveraged their work on I Was A Zombie For The FBIto land the contract for TV Dinners. The video, which is one of, if not the, earliest one made in Memphis, features the stop-motion monster, video games, and a very, very bad meal. Check it out: If you would like to see your music video on Music Video Monday, email cmccoymemphisflyer.com

Global Cafe Introduces New Chef
06/17/2019 11:08am

Global Cafe, the international food hall in the Crosstown Concourse,will have a new chef, replacing Chef Indra, who served Nepalese food. Her chow mien was a favorite. Chef Jose Pancho Leon is from Venezuela and will serve such fare astaqueos, empanadas, arepas, pabelln, and asado negro. Leons first day will be this Wednesday, June 19th. Press release below: Global Caf, an International food hall hosting three immigrant/refugee food entrepreneurs cooking and selling an eclectic mix of affordably priced dishes from their home countries, announces the hiring of new Chef, Jos Pancho Leon from Venezuela. Chef Pancho brings over 20 years of culinary experience to Global Caf, which is located in Memphis newly renovated Crosstown Concourse, a million-square-foot former Sears distribution center. He and his wife moved to Memphis, TN from Maracaibo, Venezuela less than two years ago due to the political situation in Venezuela. Chef Pancho owned a restaurant in his home country for many years. We are very excited to bring Chef Pancho aboard, says Sabine Langer, owner of Global Caf. When Chef Indra, our Nepalese Chef, informed us that she was relocating out of state with her family, we immediately thought, Who could benefit the most from some help It didnt take long to figure out that Venezuela was on top of the list with its current political situation. We reached out to a friend of ours, who is a leader in the Venezuelan community in Memphis, and he put us in touch with Pancho. We are looking forward to incorporate Chef Pancho into the team and for him to share in our collective culinary experiences says general manager, Juan Viramontes. We look forward to reaping the benefits of having his expertise as a part of our team. Food speaks all the languages of the world and it knows no borders. It is truly a universal experience, and with it we will strive to continue to build the bridges that will provide the opportunity for every member of our community to come together and share our stories. Since we moved to Memphis, Chef Pancho says, the whole community has been so welcoming. I cant wait to share some of my favorites from Venezuela with everyone here. Chef Pancho will join Chef Fayha from Syria and Chef Ibti from Sudan rounding out an eclectic international offering. Options include such specialties as taqueos, empanadas, arepas, pabelln, asado negro, etc. Global Caf is open Tuesday through Sunday and offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options as well as a full bar, specialty drinks and desserts. Takeaway and catering are available.

Beat Me in St. Louis: The Cardinals' Crisis
06/17/2019 9:16am

The St. Louis Cardinals are fluttering. While much of the teams fan base basks in the silvery shine of the St. Louis Blues first Stanley Cup championship, the esteemed baseball club owner of 11 trophies of its own is hovering around break-even in a season it was expected to make a return to meaningful games in October. Here in Memphis, the Triple-A Redbirds have dropped even further in the standings, the two-time defending Pacific Coast League champions are wobbling with a record of 29-41 through Sunday, essentially out of contention for another playoff berth before the Fourth of July. What to make of the struggles Seventy baseball games make for a considerable sample size. By now, the Cardinals should know what they have and have not. A rotation of starting pitchers considered as deep as any in the National League in March now finds itself without an ace, minus that stopper who can end thoughts of a lengthy losing streak with a shut-down performance. Miles Mikolas was The Guy last season 18-4, 2.83 ERA, but this season appears to be merely a guy 4-7, 4.83 through Sunday. Young Jack Flaherty is the ace of the future, but emphasis on future, as the 23-year-old righty is sporting a 4.28 ERA and last won a game on May 14th. Veteran Adam Wainwright 5-6 has landed on the injured list with a hamstring injury, and Michael Wacha just last week returned from a brief banishment to the bullpen got mauled by the New York Mets in his last start. When a rookie Dakota Hudson is your most consistent starting pitcher, your baseball team will struggle. And the Cardinal hitters have been no more consistent than the pitchers. Newly acquired Paul Goldschmidt armed with a new contract extension brought the kind of All-Star resume expected to fuel the St. Louis batting order for years. Through Sunday, the slugger is fifth on his team with 29 RBIs. Making matters worse, only one of the four teammates ahead of him Marcell Ozuna has driven in as many as 40 runs. This is not a potent attack Cardinal manager Mike Shildt is fielding. Is help on the way Three Memphis Redbirds recently made their big-league debuts for the Cardinals. Lefty Genesis Cabrera doesnt appear to be a threat to any of the struggling starting pitchers in St. Louis. Catcher Andrew Knizner is a legitimate prospect, but returned to Memphis the moment Yadier Molinas wounded right thumb healed. And Tommy Edman is a versatile talent, both with the bat and glove. Will he be a difference-maker for the 2019 Cardinals. Thats a stretch. In a season of bewildered looks, the face of the franchise may well be Alex Reyes, still the Cardinals top prospect, now toiling for Memphis. Since his return from a broken finger injured when he punched a wall in frustration over a poor outing Reyes hasnt missed a lot of bats with his arsenal. In three June starts, Reyes has surrendered 14 earned runs in 12 innings, never reaching the sixth inning in any of those starts. A young man who appeared to be ace material is now some distance from being merely big-league material. Baseball is merciless and relentless in its everyday schedule. Players have little time to find themselves when lost on the mound or at the plate. If Goldschmidt hits in the seasons second half like he has in the first, the Cardinals will miss the playoffs a fourth straight season. Something that hasnt happened since 1988-95. On the other hand, if Goldschmidt finds his groove and if Matt Carpenter becomes a shadow of the homer-machine he was last August, the Cardinals are within range of the Brewers and Cubs in the National League Central. Old friend Albert Pujols returns to St. Louis this weekend, the three-time MVPs first appearance at Busch Stadium since he departed for the L.A. Angels after the Cardinals 2011 championship season. Perhaps a reminder of the most recent glory days will spur a turnaround for the Cardinals. Theres lots of baseball to be played yet for the Cards. Will the coming months be an extended slog or a return to glory
