Special Agent Joel Kenyon, just out of the U.S. Customs Academy, has been assigned to the badlands of drug enforcement, the Florida Keys. In a short time he must adjust himself to lifestyle of sandals, Jimmy Buffett and the quest for the perfect frozen drink. Set in 1984, Mid Ocean will take you to the Caribbean wild west. A place tourists never see, where, for centuries, fortunes have been won and lost along the treacherous reefs; a haven divers and fishermen during the day; a conduit for smugglers at night. With the lure of easy money and the temptations available to those in authority, the lines of right and wrong are often blurred, testing even the strongest moral compass in an atmosphere where navigating a bad course can be deadly. In the end, Joel will question everyone, including himself in his quest for what is right and what is true. Mid Ocean was inspired by real-life events.

The history of Memorial Park is centered around a man and his dream. In August of 1924, E. Clovis Hinds purchased the first parcel of land which was to Memphis Memorial Park Cemetery (later changed to Memorial Park, Inc.), 54 acres far out from the city limits, at the corner of Yates and Poplar Pike. Engineer and landscape architects were employed to design and build a cemetery unique to this area. At that time there were no park-type cemeteries the entire Mid South and few in the nation. Mr. Hinds, at the age of 56, had become an innovator and pioneer in the cemetery business. Originally from North Mississippi, Mr. Hinds had been a merchant cotton buyer and founder of Cotton States Life Insurance, which he moved from Tupelo to Memphis in 1916. Between 1916 and 1924, he traveled widely, particularly in the West, and met Hubert Eaton of renowned Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. When he had the opportunity to sell the insurance company in 1924, Mr. Hinds purchased the land for Memorial Park. From that time forward until his death in 1949, he devoted himself completely to the development of the Park. Memorial Park’s outstanding feature is its physical beauty and naturally rolling terrain, with points of interest planned and constructed primarily during the 1930s by Mr. Hinds. Arkansas fieldstone is the features building material throughout the Park. Just inside the entrance is a gracefully curved reflecting pool and three-tiered fountain. As the visitor follows the driveway to the east of the fountain, he crosses stone bridges and sees the first of several fascinating constructions by Mexican artist Dionicio Rodriguez. These works include Annie Laurie’s Wishing Chair and Rose Garden, The Wishing Well, and the Fountain of Youth. Rodriguez was engaged by Mr. Hinds around 1935 to beautify the cemetery and to reproduce certain bits of history, primarily biblical. A “naturalistic artist”, Rodriguez used concrete to shape objects appearing to be boulders, cut stone blocks, wooden logs, a series of caves, and even a tree. The tree, Abraham’s Oak, has an opening large enough to walk through, with two benches hewn out of the center. The high point of Rodriguez’ work and the visitor’s experience is the Crystal Shrine Grotto, which Mr. Hinds called the only man-made crystal cave in the world. To construct the grotto, Rodriguez scooped out part of the hillside and made a cave of natural rock, quartz crystal and other semiprecious stone from the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri. Within the grotto, ten scenes depict the life of Jesus Christ. The Renaissance-style ceramic figures were imported from Italy by Mr. Hinds and Rodriguez, created the backgrounds. Other figures were fashioned by Memphis artists Luther Hampton and Marie Craig. The most recent sculpture by Memphian David Day includes “The Sermon On the Mount”, “The Raising of Jairus’ Daughter”, “Zaccheus Up a Tree”, “The Last Supper”, “The Resurrection” and “The Transfiguration”. Skylights introduce angled rays of sunlight that reflect incredible colors from stalactites and stalagmites. Also in the grotto is a painting of The Good Samaritan by Mary Rembrandt and a plaque of “Christ and the Children” by Miriam Dalstrom. Near the grotto is a reproduction of the Cave of Machpelah, the tomb of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, and Jacob. Nestled in the side of the hill, green slopes and outcropped stones make the cave an enchanting link between the past and the present. In front of the Cave of Machpelah, the Pool of Hebron has been recreated. It is representative of one of the many celebrated pools built by King Solomon to provide essential water to an otherwise arid land. After Rodriguez’s work was completed in the late 1930s, Memorial Park became an outstanding area attraction, fulfilling the founder’s dream of beautiful cemetery which would minister to the living in times of joy as well as sorrow. Since Mr. Hinds’ death in 1949, his family has continued the business and the development which this genius created. For 20 years his daughter Bess Hinds Anderson (Mrs. George M. Anderson) served as president, and his son Stanley R. Hinds, who had remained in the family business in Tupelo, Mississippi, was Vice President. Both the late Mrs. Anderson and the late Mr. Stanley R. Hinds retired in 1970. The presidency was later assumed by E. Clovis Hinds’ granddaughter, Katherine Hinds Smythe. Through the years additional land was purchased until the original 54 acres had become nearly 200. In spite of the loss of acreage to I-240 expressway and the TVA power lines, Memorial Park still has over 150 acres, including about 16 undeveloped acres. There have already been more the 68,000 burials here, with about 1,200 additional each year. The site of Memorial Park is now well within the city limits and is in the center of a major business and residential community. In 1972, the decision was made to conserve land and to move into multiple burials in a 15-
John A. Wallace Residence; Wichita, KS
John A. Wallace Residence; Wichita, KS
The John A. Wallace Residence at 1021 North Lawrence (now re-named Broadway) is confirmed to have been designed and built by William Henry Sternberg in the mid-1880s. This brick residence with a limestone foundation was located just to the south of the Hacker Residence (1055 North Lawrence) which is also suspected of being a Sternberg design/build. See photostream for image of the Hacker home. The Wallace home was built with a single-story heated carriage house finished with a small belvedere or fancy cupola, but unlike many of the carriage houses of the day, this carriage house was built of brick and trimmed out in limestone - more substantial than most carriage houses which were of wood (even when the main residence was brick). The Wallace Residence has a number of stylistic features consistent with other confirmed Sternberg designs including: an ornate slate roof comprised of bands with varying tile shapes and different slate colors for each band, two-story bay windows, double multi-tiered decorative fountains flanking the front entry way (also seen at the Greiffenstein Mansion), double front doors - a common Sternberg design (also seen on Sternberg Mansion), decorative porches on the third floor (too small to be functional) - seen on the A.W. Bitting house and many others, three main porches on the ground level, three ornate highly corbelled chimney flues and fancy milled gingerbread woodwork. In Sternberg designs, roof cresting was commonly used on the very apex of the house (as seen here), but also somewhat to a lesser extent on lower dormer apexes (as in the M.J. Oliver home). There was likely some decorative or very small porch(es) on the south side of the residence (side not showing in image). Yet another design element that appears frequently in Sternberg homes is a two-story small square bay area (see note outlining this element in image above). In Sternberg designs, this square bay is ALWAYS topped with a shed-style roof with a pitch that frequently is different from the roof it connects to. A two-story square bay with a shed roof is also seen on the Albert Hess residence at 637 N. Emporia in Wichita, KS and is only one of the reasons why the Hess residence is suspected of having been designed / built by W.H. Sternberg. Typically, slate tiles are thought of as varying shades of gray, a wide array of natural slate colors was widely available in the late 1800s. Slate colors varied from gray, black, blue-black, purple, rust, orange, blue-green, light gray and even yellow. Banding a roof in different slate colors was not uncommon as was ornamenting one's roof with geometric designs frequently of flowers, trefoils, quatrefoils, greek keys, diamonds and/or other geometric shapes. Frequently several different shapes of slate tiles such as scalloped, beveled or square tiles would be incorporated within a roof. And the way the tiles were layed (such as overlapped or fanned) also varied. Sternberg used very light-gray and very dark gray slate tiles in the roof of his own house at 1065 N. Waco Avenue, so he was clearly aware that slate tiles came in more than one color. Some of these slate tiles were "discovered" still on the roof in 2010 and have been saved. Years before this house was built, Sternberg was promoting himself as both an “architect and builder” of homes, specifically “designing and drafting” services. An advertisement for Sternberg, Hall & Co in the 1869 - 1870 Chenango County, New York Directory noted, “Being Architects and Builders themselves, they know just what is wanted for a house and how to prepare it. Give them your patronage if you would have everything in first-class style.” Some have tended to think of W.H. Sternberg as mainly a contractor, but indeed the architecting and design services that he did himself were a substantial portion of his business. At Sternberg's millwork factory in Norwich, New York, his designing and drafting business was co-located in the same building as the millwork factory. At one point they were two distinct businesses operating out of the same building, both being run, of course, by Sternberg. This image shows a small box out next to the curb, right next to the street between the two hitching posts. This is likely a stone carriage step so that when a carriage arrived the door would open and the ladies could comfortably step out of the carriage and onto the stone carriage step without showing too much leg! This stone likely had the address of the residence ("1021") and even the last name of the owner ("Wallace") chisled into it. This residence, with the multi-tiered fountains, stone carriage step, iron fence and dual decoratively carved stone hitching posts, reinforced to visitors that they were arriving at a very fine address. This was intended to impress. The sidewalks appear to be paved with cement which was certainly available at this time. Portland cement had been around for about 50 yea
