I, like thousands of Memphians, read the weekly Memphis Flyer, a well written and popular local newspaper. The issue of School Consolidation and all its various ramifications, twists and turns has been well covered by the Flyer. Jackson Baker asked me about my thoughts and opinions on this consolidation and I told him about what I considered two important issues, the land and buildings in the six incorporated cities in Shelby County and the OPEB issue. He asked that I write an article for the issue that came out yesterday. Here it is in case you did not pick up the current print issue or you did not read it online at the Memphis Flyer’s very interesting website. Read it and let me know what you think.
