  • How could NFL botch big weekend of pre-season?

    Notes scribbled after trying to watch football at home Sunday night...

    Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of the pre-season games, especially the early part of August. Most of the time, the games are being played by rookies along with veterans who have been cut by one team and are trying to make an impression with another.

  • Smallish Lady Bearcats dreaming big

    Replacing nearly every cog in a machine is not easy, but that is what awaits the Anderson County High School volleyball program in 2016.

  • It’s time for America to wake up

    Is America at war? My answer is yes.

    Our culture, our religious freedom, the very foundation of our society is under attack. But I wish to be more specific. We are at war with Islamic Jihad. Just because we, America, has not declared war against them they have declared war on us and wish to destroy our very way of life.
