Yes Girls Can Spotlight: Carol Chumney

Carol Chumney has gone where very few before her have.  She ran for mayor of Shelby County in 2002 and then for mayor of Memphis in 2007.  In a city of nearly one million people, how many people have had the courage to run for mayor?  Relatively speaking, it has been very few.  But courage is something that Carol shows everyday as she fights for her clients, her city, and her passions.  Carol is a great role model for the young women of Memphis.  We sat down with Carol for a few minutes to learn more about this amazing woman who is not afraid to take on all the challenges that face a great city like Memphis.

Frank Chin goes inside the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW at The Orpheum

Rocky Horror Picture Show celebrates the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when their car halts in the rain. They both look for contact only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there? Complete with a large group of Transylvanians dancing to the ‘Time Warp,’ Rocky Horror is the cult classic that offers audiences an unforgettable movie-going experience.  This year marked 10 years of the Rocky Horror Picture Show event at the Orpheum and it was a party!
