City Council preview

When the Memphis City Council meets Tuesday it will be the first time in months that all 13 seats have been filled. And there are plenty of important topics on the agenda.

Council member Martavius Jones stopped by to talk about that.

National Hugging Day

Today is not only Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Day but it’s also National Hugging Day! One group is using the occasion to bring some smiles to seniors here in the Mid-South.
