Last week, the Associated Press reported that Brentwood carnival operator Ed Gregory and his wife Vonna Jo received a pardon over the objections of the Justice Department. The Gregory pardon is known now as one of many granted to people with financial and personal ties to the Clintons. The Gregorys are friends with the former president and his wife, and with Hillary Clinton’s brother Tony. They have also donated money to several Democratic campaigns, including Clinton’s successful U.S. Senate run in New York and Al Gore’s unsuccessful presidential bid.
Al Del Greco must be kicking himself. Struggling to get its payroll under the NFL salary cap, the Titans cut the placekicker last week. One of the most popular of the team’s players, Del Greco was unusually unreliable this year. His misses contributed to three of the team’s four losses, including the season-ending defeat to the rival Baltimore Ravens. The Titans also said good-bye to the oft-injured receiving duo of Carl Pickens and Yancey Thigpen, two players who never lived up to the expectations in place when they joined the team as free agents.
Mayor Bill Purcell is looking at building a new convention center at the current downtown Thermal site, his aides said last week.

Given that private interest in downtown is lukewarm at best, Purcell’s latest proposal might be a way to make closing the plant viable.
