“Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”

In the midst of all this coronavirus craziness, we received some good news. Our granddaughter is going to have a daughter. Yep, I’m going to be a great grandpa in August. I know that’s hard for you to believe a young man such as me could possibly be a great grandfather, but it’s true. They’v…

I don’t know how I feel about this. Our lake neighbors are from Atlanta and Auburn; the higher rate of COVID-19. Just don’t want them bringing it to us. Our county numbers are really good right now.

The coronoavirus has affected the sports world in a way it hasn’t seen since the Spanish Flu 100 years ago. Baseball has been postponed while basketball might be canceled altogether.

A small but loud public perception has placed educators squarely in its crosshairs. It might seem self-evident that because of our current coronavirus situation, the path of least resistance is the best choice. It’s reasonable to consider that some are thinking, “Things are hard enough — mig…

Bo Nix grew up watching and loving Auburn football. He dreamed of one day leading the Tigers to the national championship as the starting quarterback. He has the skills to play the position in his DNA as well as orange and blue in his blood.

I have always considered myself a homebody, but this past week really has me questioning that declaration. I don’t enjoy being at home as much as I thought.

Have you left your house this week?

The GOP contest for who sits in our No. two U.S. Senate seat has been delated until July 14 due to the Coronavirus. The winner of the battle between Jeff Sessions and Tommy Tuberville will more than likely be our junior U.S. senator for six years.  

In 1918, a new influenza virus appeared, right in the middle of World War I. People called it the Spanish flu. It was later known as the H1N1 virus or swine flu.

I should be using my column this week to praise Bruce Pearl on another trip to the Sweet 16 or lamenting an early exit from the NCAA Tournament. Either way, the 2019-20 season was probably his finest coaching job since arriving at Auburn.

Boy, this virus business has really gotten serious. I heard the authorities talk about quarantine and sheltering in place. Most of us in the South have just gone about our normal days until someone explained to us that quarantine and shelter in place means hunker down. Why didn’t they say th…

There have been plenty of moments during my lifetime that have made me fall in love with the sports world. From the final play of winning a championship to the heartfelt moments seen at the smallest venues around the world, sports provide experiences to athletes and spectators that will last…

With the sports world shut down due to the coronavirus, leave it up to the NFL to scratch America’s competitive itch with big trades and signings that made social media gasp and awe amidst the pandemic, giving us the gift sports give best — a break from reality.

I was an Akron Fire Department paramedic — the front page of the Oct. 22, 1985 Akron Beacon Journal astounded me. Gregg Aschelman, an Akron Fire Department paramedic trainee, had filed a grievance with the union because he feared contracting AIDS — a death sentence with no cure.

We have a great race for the U.S. Senate. When the votes from the first primary were counted Jeff Sessions and Tommy Tuberville were in a virtual tie at 32% and 33%, respectively.

Despite what people on social media and fans of other conferences say, the SEC is still the cream of the crop for NFL talent. 

Every year hundreds of college football players get invited to work out on the national stage to prove and show their talents to scouts and owners alike. Unlike the other major sports in the United States, the NFL Scouting Combine is exciting and unpredictable.

The finals for the AHSAA basketball season wrapped up last week and it was another rousing success. From the AHSAA administration to the good folks at Knight Eady and right down to the ball boys, this annual event just gets better and better.

I was just reading an article about Oprah falling on stage during her program that she is running for WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers). It reminded me of a time in the not so distant past when I went to sit on a chair at an auction, missed it and landed on the floor. Everything stopped…

I consider myself a pretty even-tempered sort of guy. There aren’t a lot of things in life that really get under my skin. Having pastored churches for over 57 years of my adult life has left me with a fairly thick skin and I’ve heard about every excuse that can be given, every justification …

Glenn Cunningham, 7, walked to school with his brothers Floyd, 13, and Raymond, 9, and his sister Letha, 7.

I have to admit baseball season has kind of snuck up on me. Don’t get me wrong; I was still counting down the days until pitchers and catchers report and I have already tuned in to multiple baseball games on the opening weekend of spring training but the excitement did not build for me the s…

Folks, our primaries are next week. On the Democratic side, the presidential preference primary will be the big show and will be interesting to watch. On the right, the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate Seat will be the marquee event.

It’s just the start of the election season, and I’ve got it already — election depression or the feeling there won’t be anyone running I want to see in office. The ads flood the airways and in my news feed on Facebook. My friends endlessly discuss the candidates running for office. Almost al…

It’s always devastating for a team to get the news one of its players has suffered a season-ending injury. It’s even more difficult when it happens to a star player and when it becomes a possibility of affecting the recruiting process.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow stunned the college football world this season, going from an average quarterback at best to one of the top players in the entire country.

In April 2017, the Alabama House was embroiled in a torrid and tension saturated three-hour meeting wherein the House approved a bill designed to prohibit removing monuments and historic structures constructed on public property by a 68-29 vote. The bill’s purported objective: preserve histo…

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately but I’ve been throwing a lot of things away. If the thing doesn’t work, aggravates me or just looks like it will aggravate me, I have given it the heave-ho. I’ve decided if something doesn’t go my way then it’s out of here. It’s just that simple wi…
