  • Eighteen-year-old Morgan “Hot Shoe” Turpen has lofty dreams.

    They include earning an education degree from the University of Memphis and becoming a teacher and high school softball coach and possibly, one day, a principal.

    But should that plan go awry, the Cordova, Tenn., native does have a back-up.

    For now, she has a 1,300-pound winged sprint car with a 360-cubic, 700-horsepower engine and a pair of racing gloves to fall back on. Later on, if she continues to grow and develop, that could mean NASCAR.

  • I have breaking news: Our neighborhoods have disappeared.
    The young folks moved away and the older folks have gotten older or moved on, too.
    What happened? Our neighborhoods are now full of strangers who seldom speak, much less wave.
    Why are there no children riding tricycles or scooters on the sidewalks?
    Shucks, most recently developed neighborhoods don’t even have sidewalks. For that matter, most of  the residents don’t even know what a scooter is.

  • Nine years ago, when Ronnie and Crystal Carnes bought their home at 1228 Kent Drive, the contractor made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. The price of the new home was reduced if they agreed to do all the landscaping themselves.  

    Having a special knack for landscaping, Ronnie welcomed and accepted the deal.   

    Now, by reading do-it-yourself magazines, driving through neighborhoods and picking up a few tips from previous Yard of the Month recipients, he has created quite a showplace at their home.
