  • Collins ousts Anderson in tourney opener

    In the post-season, the name of the game is survive and advance.

    It might be one of the oldest cliches in sports but it is also true that the name of the game is surviving.

  • Unexpected opportunity a lasting lesson

    I rarely cover college signings anymore.

    It’s not that those are not important moments in the life of a young person. They are very significant to the person and the family involved.

For that reason, I do ask that the parties involved provide a photo and information and we will find a place for that on the sports page.

  • How did our country get to where it is today?

    Where in the Constitution of the United States does it give the government control of public toilets?

    When did we give up the rights of 98 percent of the population of this country to protect the preferences of the 2 percent of the population that claim to be homosexual or trans-gender?

    Whatever happened to common sense, respect for others, and common human decency?

    I sometimes feel that I have lived to be too old. I have seen changes take place in our country that I would have never thought possible only a few years ago.
