For $6.5 million, a ranch fit for a King
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — For $6.5 million, you can own a piece of property fit for a King.
The famous Circle G Ranch, better known as the Elvis Ranch near Memphis, is available — and people have been inquiring from all over the world.
Prudential Collins-Maury Realtors agent Rodger Motz, who is handling the sale, told The Memphis Commercial Appeal that calls have come from as far away as Denmark.
‘‘I knew before I listed the property that there were a lot of Elvis fans out there,’’ Motz said. But I have to admit, I was surprised to get a call from that far away.’’

A Torch Extinguished
HYANNIS PORT, Mass. AP) — The greatest heights eluded Ted Kennedy over a lifetime of achievement and pain. No presidency. No universal health care, chief among his causes.
Instead, Kennedy built his Washington monument stone by stone, his imprint distinct on the Senate’s most important works over nearly half a century. He toiled across the Potomac River from the graveyard of his fallen brothers.
The last of the Kennedys who fascinated the nation with their ambition, style, idealism, tragedies — and sometimes sheer recklessness — Edward Moore Kennedy died late Tuesday night at 77. A black shroud and vase of white roses sat Wednesday on his Senate desk, which John Kennedy had used before him.
