Memphis enjoys some of the purest water in the country, thanks to a layer of clay that keeps impurities out of its enormous aquifer.

But gaps, or "breaches," in that clay layer pose a threat to the quality of the city's drinking water.

That's why the University of Memphis' Center for Applied Earth Science and Engineering (CAESAR) is mapping those breaches -- areas where contaminants could enter the groundwater.

With the toll of a church bell, around 200 people cheered when his lanky likeness was finally revealed on Wednesday. The bronze sculpture of a young Johnny Cash with a guitar newly stands in front of 999 Cooper Street, near the now-vacant Galloway Methodist Church. It was there, in 1954, that Cash had his first public performance, a fundraiser for a women's bible study. 

65 years later, Cash's grandson Thomas Gabriel, and his nephew Roy Cash, a resident of Collierville, were on hand for the dedication.

Two neighborhoods in Shelby County have been identified as "food deserts" -- areas where residents  have to travel up to a mile just to buy groceries. While that isn't a problem for many people, these neighborhoods -- in South Memphis and Frayser -- also have high poverty rates and residents who rely on public transportation.
