odds and ends

— And then there were three: Dr. Tiffany Anderson and Dr. James Williams have both withdrawn their names from consideration for MCS' next superintendent.

— The Redbirds will wear pink jerseys for their game this Sunday against Oklahoma in support of breast cancer awareness. After the game, the, er, pinkbird jerseys will be auctioned off on ebay, with proceeds going to both the Komen Foundation and the Memphis Redbirds Foundation.

— A former MLGW employee was indicted for allegedly defrauding the utility out of tens of thousands of dollars. The employee (again, allegedly) authorized and made payments on customers' MLGW accounts using nonexistent bank accounts, and for this service, customers paid her a fee. (If I'm understanding this correctly, I assume her fee was smaller than their utility bills.)
