Great things are FALLING into place these first days of fall. Here are five that happened this week in the Mid-South.

Viral principal

A video showing Central High School Principal Greg McCullough under the hood of one of his student's vehicles is going viral. Students said the video is just one example of McCullough's willingness to help, connect with, or just be an example for them.

Pink badges

Bartlett police officers used their own money to purchase pink badges, which they plan to wear in October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to statistics, approximately one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

75 years of wedded bliss

A Memphis couple is ready to celebrate 75 years of marriage! William and Nettie Mae were born in the 1920s, and have been together since the Second World War. Happy anniversary William and Nettie Mae White!

Not the poorest large metro area

The latest Census data shows Memphis is no longer this country's poorest large metro area. It doesn't get us out of the bottom of the barrel, but Memphis is now the second poorest large metro area in the US. These recent numbers are the lowest reported levels since 2008.

Zoo Travels

Memphis Zoo workers traveled across the glove to help rebuild a zoo devastated by flooding in Tbilisi, Georgia. Zoo workers were chosen by the U-S Agency for International Development to travel to Georgia to help rebuild.
