Thank you, According to a February 1996 The Commercial Appeal article written by John Hubbell, the McCorkle Road Neighborhood Development Association (MRNDA), Inc. of Memphis, founded in March 1994, was already celebrating National Night Out at the time of his writing. The MRNDA celebrated National Night every second Tuesday in August until 2014. For years, the group encouraged Raines Station, and anyone else who would listen, to celebrate the event in October because the August heat was just to brutal. Besides, Texas was already celebrating in October so why couldn’t Tennessee? The MRNDA had complained for years to host the event in October, but no one seemed to be listening. Can you imagine the joy felt reading in mid-November 2018 that the Memphis Area Neighborhood Watch Office had succeeded in changing the date to October? We were elated and immediately began to announced our intentions to once again participate in the annual event for the first time in the past five years. We knew we had to come back strong after being gone from participating for so long, so our efforts were addressed to attack neighbors from all, especially the young homeowner, age groups. We did and after it was all said and done, we deemed the event a full success! Continued on Page 8

TOILET PAPER TRASH WAS LEFT ON THE GROUND ALL THE WAY UP AND DOWN THE ENTIRE STREET WHAT A SHAME TOILET PAPER Every Day of the Year in my Neighborhood Post Office Box 9695 Memphis, TN 38190-0695 Dear Mr. Sanitation Worker, What makes you feel that leaving trash in front of my house is acceptable? Do you leave trash on the other side of town when you empty garbage carts in front of homes? Well, I’ve never seen any and that is because you don’t do it in certain areas. Tell me it isn't so and I’ll prove it to you that it is. When you are in predominately African American neighborhoods, Mr. Sanitation Worker, please remember that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lost his life fighting for your rights. Dr. King, as you know, was assassinated right here on these very same streets fighting for you and your co-workers and all of your predecessors to have the ability to insist you be treated like human beings (hence, the I AM A MAN signs) and not be treated like the trash you pick up for a living. For God’s sake, if not for your own, Dr. King’s, or the communities you serve, please do your job with the pride Dr. King has made it possible for you to have in being a Sanitation Worker. We are tax paying citizens and we are not going to continue to watch as you destroy the very communities you live in for lack of caring for anything other than your check. I have your pictures and will assimilate a group of concerned citizens who will follow your garbage trucks in their areas, taking pictures of your sloppiness, and turning each and everyone of you in and demanding your immediate termination. 10

NEWSCENE NOVEMBER AUTHOR ’ S CORNER. . . Time Is Tight: My Life, Note by Note Hardcover – October 29, 2019 By Booker T. Jones The long-awaited memoir of Booker T. Jones, leader of the famed Stax Records house band, architect of the Memphis soul sound, and one of the most legendary figures in music. PURCHASE YOUR COPY ONL INE AT AMAZON. COM TODAY ! Support DI’MANS, Inc. dba NEWSCENE https://smile.amazon.com/Time-Tight-My-Life-Note/dp/0316485608/ ref=smi_www_rco2_go_smi_g3905707922?_encoding=UTF8&%2AVersion% 2A=1&%2Aentries%2A=0&ie=UTF8 HARDCOVER - $27.00 AUDIO - $19.72 KINDLE - $15.99 Booker T. & The MG’s leader Booker T. Jones hosts a book signing for his memoir Time Is Tight: My Life Note By Note, Friday, November 1st, 7 p.m., at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, 926 E. McLemore Avenue to bring back to the remarkable music career that began with him and David Porter running errands in their band teacher’s car when students together at Booker T. Washington High School, where Jones’s father was also a math instructor. Now 74 years old, the Memphis music icon takes the reader on an easy ride that often makes you pause to realize what you just read. The most subtle punch is when he outlines his formative years from his family’s home on Edith Street. Reading it makes you sigh in reverence, with a trickle of empathy and exhaustion for his parents, as you are drawn into the tight knit neighborhood support bolstering the foundations his father and gifted vocalist mother built for him. Through his story you come to realize how remarkably young was the talent that created Stax’s legacy. Jones’s parents made the decision that he should give up his long-standing paper route, spring-boarding him as the baby boy centerpiece of the label’s house band, Booker T. & The MG’s. In the time of new vistas for Black America, from the corner of College and McLemore his career took flight all over the world. Jones’s far-reaching success lie in his skills as an arranger. He credits a dual education as a teenage prodigy doing playing live around town and session work at the studio, from whence he would drive 400 miles to Indiana University Music School to earn his bachelor’s degree. A good way to enjoy Time Is Tight is to have your favorite internet accessible device close at hand. One second you want to Google musical references such as “contrapuntal” and other deep-seated musical devices you’d never associate with the earthy R & B Stax produced, and then the next sentence might push you to grab up the beat on “Hiphugger”, “Soul Limbo”, and of course, “Green Onions”, among the many hits that fall naturally into the book’s narrative. Well indexed, it’s fun to look up the famous and obscure influences he notes, or even “chateaubriand avec frittes”, the gourmet French steak preparation he came to love while working in France composing the soundtrack for the 70’s movie Youngblood, his first of several. And groovy enough, perhaps the best cut you will find online is a live video of Booker T. & the MG’s putting down a scorching performance of Time Is Tight stamping why the group’s power commanded southern soul in so few quick years. Ultimately, like the tense beginning of his soundtrack hit for Clint Eastwood’s film Hang ‘Em High, Time Is Tight is not a sugar-coated rendition of a life’s greatest hits. Jones left well before Stax’s demise, and made very significant contributions throughout the pop music spectrum, from Bill Withers to Willie Nelson to Earl Klugh and further. He confronts intrigue behind Stax’s door, including purloined publishing rights, the death of Otis Redding, his musical rock Al Jackson Jr., and the original Bar Kays, his pain at MG mate Steve Cropper’s quoted blaming of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memphis’s racial strife in Memphis, his sad first marriages, house fires, and more. A must for Memphis music buffs, a fun read for those who enjoy more than virtual reality. (NEWSCENE contributor Tony Jones, INK! is a Memphis based independent writer & publicist.) 16

Bluff City Law & The Secret Of Dry Rub Barbecue Richard Ross (from left), NBC’s Senior Vice President of Production, is pictured receiving several slabs of the famous Rendezvous dry rub ribs from chef Pat Donahue, Robert Stewart Jr. and Betty Robinson at the Memphis City Council’s October 15th meeting. The Memphis City Council presented a resolution and a rack of ribs from the Rendezvous to creative team of NBC Universal’s Bluff City Law at the council’s Tuesday, October 15th meeting to honor their choosing to film the show here in it’s namesake locale. Recreating an episode from the series’ first season, the fun moment was well featured in the news here, and NEWSCENE was able to get a capture an inside moment we thought you’d enjoy. Bluff City Law has created quite a buzz here for quite a while now, readily evident as council chairman Kemp Conrad read the resolution into the record. NBC’s Senior Vice President of Production Richard Ross gracefully accepted, and the Rendezvous team were called up. Betty Robinson, Robert Jr., and chef Pat Donahue, comprised the three-person team from the Memphis landmark that brought the ribs properly wrapped in aluminum foil on a silver tray. Surrounded by city, county and state election officials there to get souvenir credit for the $10 million incentives grouped together for the production, NBC exec and staff members from the show, after the official photos were taken, Ross proved his stated sincerity about filming in Memphis when he rushed over to chef Donahue to grill him about grilling. Specifically, how do you get dry rub ribs right? “I grill in my backyard, and in Los Angeles, nobody has this,” he said. “How long do you cook it? Do you leave the membrane on or take it off?” he gleefully asked Donahue, and kept on going, getting tips to use when he cooks—excuse us—grills, his ribs back home. Visibly pleased with the brief primer, the grilling tips underlined what Ross has stated to media about filming Bluff City Law here. “The city officials have gone way above and beyond but it’s also the citizens of Memphis that have opened their arms to being very helpful to being just supportive as no place I’ve ever been.” Such person to person moments are a hidden, but potentially valuable plus Convention and Visitors Bureau chief Kevin Kane says is part of the business of marketing Memphis to the world. “I rushed home to watch the premiere. It made me feel great. This is a billboard for the city,” he continued. “Memphis scenery going out to millions of people every week is good for the Memphis brand, and quite honestly, the subject matter they’re dealing with, taking on tough issues, I think that speaks well of Memphis.” (NEWSCENE contributor Tony Jones, INK! is a Memphis based independent writer & publicist.) 22
