    The 47-23 final score only underscored it.


    But few could have foreseen such an outcome. Not with Anderson County being ranked in everybody’s Top 5 in Class 5A. And especially not with Bryan Station riding a 10-game losing streak, dating to last year’s season opener.

  • You can always count on change

    Every so often my husband gets a certain look in his eye and then says, “Before you say no, hear me out.”
    What comes next almost always involves a stepladder, can of spackle, his drill and a huge mess.
