  • Sports Blog: State's hoops fans are crazy

    By now everyone in the country knows about the two guys that got in a fight over the Kentucky-Louisville game in the Final Four.

    And you know about the guy that offered to trade his wife for tickets to Saturday's showdown.

    Part of me reads these stories and wants to laugh, knowing how unbelievably bizarre those stories are. Part of me also wants to cry, since the rest of the nation took those stories and underscored the reputation as a bunch of uneducated hillbillies.

  • BLOG: You always remember the first one

    You always remember that first kiss, that first time you drove, maybe even the first basket you ever made in a basketball game.

    Who was Jesus Christ?
    Recently, a local man told me how Jesus was less than God, according to his beliefs.
    This pained me deeply because Christ is above all.
    Most professing Christians believe he was the son of God who died on the cross for our sins.
    We know of his life story how he raised the dead, walked on water, healed the sick, and even forgave sin.
    But did you know that he is actually God? Don’t take my word for it, let’s see what some of the scriptures tell us about the supremacy of Jesus.
