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.

After a violent clash between protesters and Memphis police Wednesday night, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting that precipitated the stand off. U.S. Marshals killed a 20-year-old Memphis man while attempting to arrest him in the Frayser neighborhood. 

Cell phone footage from the scene shows Memphis Police officers in full riot gear, shields up, facing dozens of angry residents. Memphis officials said at least 36 officers were injured by thrown rocks and bricks. Several television journalists were assaulted.

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.
