We can keep racing without all the noise, just bulldoze the current track and replace it with a velodrome. 

Best idea ever, but I only say this because I am a cyclist and have done some crit racing on the track.

With all the fuss over Confederate monuments, this one in Oak Hill on I 65 has been hated  from the start.  It is now in a poor statee after having been spray painted pink years ago.  This is one that

I've mentioned one of my dream developments before, but it is apropos to this line of thought...  The State and City can do a trade:  The city would trade the Adventure Science Center to Tenne

^^Are they really going to have steps going into a grocery store?  Or will there be a parking lot / entrance on that left side down the hill?

The steps are odd. There would have to an at grade entrance, perhaps ramped. There will be parking underneath.

I was in Tunica last Sunday and was very surprised to see a pair of the snowball-throwing polar bears in front of a closed down sweet shop out in a nowhere area of one of the many access roads around the casinos.  I mean  EXACT statues like the ones Edgehill has off 12thS and uses as a neighborhood logo.   Have these historic bears been copied and reproduced widely?    If not, these two in Tunica may be from the original Custard Ice cream business back years ago.    Does anyone think it would be a good idea for someone in the community to secure these for relocation to Edgehill?

Someone else can clarify, but there were a number of those made, I think, for an ice cream chain or something like that. Not many still exist

A chain called Polar Bear frozen custard in the 1930s put concrete statues of polar bears throwing snowballs outside their locations in various cities around the country. There were two locations (so 4 bears) in Nashville, on on West End across from Centennial Park and the other at 425 Gallatin Road. The businesses ceased operating only a few years later. At least one Polar Bear custard stand was located in Memphis. The bears you saw are apparently in Nesbit, MS, an unincorporated place in Desoto County. https://www.roadsideamerica.com/map/61851

The ones I saw were certainly not in Nesbit, nor on glass block pedestals as the website photo shows.  Something must have happened to the business in Nesbit.  These  must certainly be them but they are now in Tunica Resorts.  Nesbit is about 50 miles east of their present location Someone painted black swim trunks on them...too bad I didn't get a photo of them.   Definitely the store they are in front of is out of business.  I wish someone could get them for Nashville before they are destroyed or stolen.

A few more of the new renderings for the Publix grocery at 8th Ave. south and Bradford Ave. Fisher Architecture out of Maryland is handling the design. It will be 3 stories (2 garage, 1 for the store on top).

Curb Victory Hall (5 stories, 39 units) is about to get underway at the northern edge of the Operation Stand Down complex at the NW corner of 12th Ave. South and Edgehill Ave.  Tony Giarratana now has additional partner s in this development for homeless veterans: Mike Curb and the Home Depot Foundation. MDHA will manage the property once it is opened. R.G. Anderson will be in charge of construction, and it will be complete in 14 to 17 months.

You can see that there is an entrance at grade clearly in the third rendering above.   Obviously the parking levels will be served by elevators like the old Harris Teeter (now Kroger)mezzanine on 21st Avenue.   I wonder how they will keep carts from exiting the upper entrance and walking off to the apartments down the street or just parking them in the landscaping.

I'm surprised by the closed-off nature of the Publix design. You'd think they would have been able to include a few more windows on the side facing 8th. Regardless, it will be nice to have an grocery store alternative within walking distance — the Kroger down the road is horrendous in almost every way imaginable.

Kroger stores in this town are an embarrassment to the Kroger company and to this community. I won't step foot in the Donelson store since going in there one night around 10:30 and there must have been forty people in line to check out at the ONE LANE that was staffed. There seemed to be no sense of urgency from any of the other employees who were wandering around the store-they seemed to have the "it's not my problem, man" attitude. Unfortunately, at that hour they have no competition in the area since the Publix stores close at 10:00, and there is nothing else nearby (24/7 Walmart in Hermitage is at least five miles away). On top of the service challenges, many of their stores here seem out of date and poorly kept, both inside and out. Aldi, Publix, the Mount Juliet Kroger (which is pretty awesome), or Walmart are my better options.

Kroger left the Chattanooga market decades ago due to union issues (I don't know what they were, but that's what people say whenever I ask why they're not here). You can still see their old store buildings designed with the glass atrium over the front (1970s) but they were long converted to BiLo (probably Red foods before that) and now Food City. They are decidedly downmarket from Publix, although BiLo had built some nice big stores in the past 10 years. I usually shop here at Publix only because my biggest gripe with Food City is their crappy bakery (they didn't even upgrade their bakery recipes/equipment from the assets they bought from BiLo).  I recently went into the Belle Meade Kroger and thought it was sub-par to any Publix I've ever been inside. And isn't that location one of their models for the Nashville market?  A fellow attorney at my previous firm lives in Hendersonville. I've been to their big 'omni' store there and was not particularly impressed. It was like a WalMart with the aisles going in  different directions. I really think that concept was a mistake by their corporate bosses.

Of course, growing up in Atlanta, my family shopped at Kroger all the time. We had A&P and Big Star...  later Winn Dixie... and Kroger was far superior to all of them.
