  • Same bands, different tastes leave Marching Bearcats hungry again

    It was somewhat fitting that the final performance of the 2016 season for the Anderson County High School Marching Band would come at a place named for a pizza empire.

    I’ll take the ham and pineapple. You can have pepperoni and mushrooms.

    We can both be happy.After having some pizza — Really, what else can you eat at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium? — the Marching Bearcats were just ready to finally claim that elusive big trophy they have been chasing the last five years.

    It was to be their year, you know.

  • Worship is not a spectator sport

    I came across something this week on social media that I think is worthwhile to share.

    “Twelve reasons I don’t go to sporting events anymore.

    1. Every time I went, they asked for money.

    2. The people sitting in my row didn’t act very friendly.

    3. The seats were very hard.

    4. The coach never came to visit me.

    5. The referees made a decision that I didn’t like.

    6. I was sitting with hypocrites. They only came to see what others were wearing.

  • Now is the time to start thinking about Thanksgiving

    The month of October is officially over and with that comes a lot of terminations and culminations. Marching band season ended with a bang; we made it to state finals and finished second. I’m so proud of our kids. Daylight savings is just four days away, no more 8 p.m. sunsets. The colder weather has slowly but surely started, at least in the morning, before sunrise at the bus stop.

    Like many of you, I am already planning Thanksgiving dinner. I try to cook one new thing every year while maintaining the core standards of turkey, stuffing, etc.
