‘More than anything in these hours, my thoughts are with his family and Chamber colleagues.

‘I’m in close contact with MPD, which is leading a thorough investigation.’  

The Commercial Appeal reports that Trenary – a father-of-three – founded Lone Star Airlines in Oklahoma in 1984.

He came to Memphis in 1997 to run a regional airline that morphed into Pinnacle.

  1. That night, CarlAphrodite was cooking. Undisputed Italian, she prepares pasta for us. She sails from one closet to another, in this outfit that is now the most familiar to me: fitting trousers and a sweater that is just as comfortable, noble materials – simple and effective. I watched her body move with this flexibility that only belongs to her and that anchors her definitively on the feline side. Every once in a while, I would look at his butt, perfect shape. When Carla walks, you look at her ass, that’s how it is, something like hypnosis. Are they the remains of a mannequin’s walk when she knows she’s in front of people? Dinner was joyful and lively. The live comparison had not destroyed me. The upper middle class had not defeated the provincial. And above all, an important nuance, she had not sought to do so. Carla and I could live together. She was superb, no doubt about that, but what I hadn’t imagined was that her intelligence was commensurate.
