  • Fresh cucumbers to more than simply taste good

    For those of us wanting to eat healthier and change some eating habits, we do a lot of research. It can seem overwhelming and at times, we want to give up.

    My advice, and my approach has always been to pick one item or one subject and concentrate on that. If you wanted to fix the brakes on your car, you wouldn’t read a manual on the transmission.

  • Do not compromise on the true words of Christ

    Paul Washer, to my mind, is one of the greatest evangelists of our time.

    His preaching and teaching with such great passion and conviction has had a great impact upon my own life.

    Paul is well represented on YouTube. I heard Paul speak at a church conference a few years back. He was giving a missions report to around 3,000 individuals, including many young missionaries.

  • Pitching makes baseball most uncertain of all prep sports

    For years, I believed that making the state baseball tournament was the most difficult task in high school sports. My reasoning centered simply on the fact that baseball is the only team sport that does not allow a coach to put his best lineup on the field every day.

  • Rogers rules Rockets in District Opener

    Timmy Rogers picked the right time to turn in the best pitching performance of his high school baseball career.

    The junior right-hander gave up two unearned runs on three hits and two walks to lead Anderson County to a 3-2 win over visiting Shelby County in a 30th District game Monday night.

    Rogers was able to throw some heat when he had to but seemed to be fooling the Rockets with off-speed pitches throughout the contest.


    Logan Mann just had one concern as he was coming to after surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital.

    “When he woke up from the surgery, he was in the ICU,” Logan’s father, Paul Mann remembers. “When he was coming to, his eyes were not open, but he asked, ‘Can I play football?’”

    He’d just undergone an operation in which part of his skull had been temporarily removed so a surgeon could fix a problem in his brain. Yet Logan Mann was concerned if he could put on a helmet again.

    He did.

  • Simon Kenton slips past Bearcats

    The unpredictability of high school baseball was on display Friday afternoon when Anderson County hosted Simon Kenton in a battle of two of the better teams in the Eighth Region.

    But with both teams looking at district seeding games early this week, neither coach was willing to throw one of his top pitchers, but in the end it still came down to Simon Kenton being able to make one more play than Anderson as the Pioneers claimed a 6-5 win.
