Happy Monday, y'all. Dip a toe into your working week with these Memphis news updates:
- First, the most exciting news (at least for those of us who like to play in the water): the fountains at Civic Center Plaza have been turned back on.
- Would it jinx things to say that the weather is insanely pleasant, or would it just make me sound like a person who's terrible at small talk? Whatever. It's crazy nice out. Drop everything and go outside at some point today, ok?
- The Tigers may have lost to Arkansas State on Saturday, but there's good news – with a score of 33-28, it was just a loss, not a devastation or butt-kicking or embarssment. All hail the Fuente! era.
- In other sports news, the new Grizzlies ownership is adding a high-profile local as a member.
- The National Civil Rights Museum is getting a pretty cool gift from an unlikely source: magician David Copperfiled purchased a rare reel-to-reel tape of Dr. Martin Luther King for the museum.
- Get your mugs ready – tickets to the Cooper-Young Regional Beerfest are on sale now.
- Need a job? The KTG Tissue Plant in North Memphis is having job fairs this week to fill 100 positions.
