In case you haven’t heard, there was a high school coach in New York who was suspended for his team defeating an opponent, 61-13.
My TV died. Now that is a sad statement for any man to have to make. There I sat contently watching the news when it made a loud pop and the picture just went off. It was a frightening experience to say the least. I just sat there staring at its large 60-inch blank dead screen and a trickle …
As Thanksgiving approaches I wondered how pumpkin pie and sweet potato pie became holiday staples. Wikipedia reported pumpkin pie recipes first appeared in Canadian and American cookbooks in the early 19th century and serving pumpkin pie became a Thanksgiving Day custom. Lydia Maria Child me…
The Cleveland Browns’ season has not gone according to plan. The team is a 2-6 disaster and the end doesn’t seem to be in sight. Prior to the 2019 NFL season the Cleveland Browns did a complete 180 as a franchise, trading and signing supreme talent to their roster with names like Odell Beckh…
I spend most of my life in the sports world whether covering football, playing basketball or watching soccer. And as much as I love sports, there are some instances in all that time that can make me cringe.

Many people would agree their years in high school were some of the best years of their lives — particularly those individuals who were members of a sports team or participated in other activities such as the marching band or debate team.
I spent the better part of my column last week detailing how the Auburn offense has routinely put up big numbers against mediocre and subpar teams in the SEC over the last five years.
Tuesday has to be the least respected and appreciated day of the week. Mondays signal new beginnings, Wednesdays let you know you are halfway home, Thursdays have the best TV programming, Fridays usher in the weekend, Saturdays are all for football and Sundays are made for chilling.
Next week we will celebrate Halloween and that means my wife will be ready to decorate for Christmas. We’re one of those families that has Santa holding a jack-o’-lantern while sitting at the Thanksgiving table with pilgrims. Already I’m dreading handling all those boxes of decorations becau…
I praise and thank my wife Deborah, as she watches news broadcasts and reads newspapers with discernment and provides me with nuggets I use to write letters to the editor or opinion columns.
The last two seasons for the Wetumpka football have been two of the most successful seasons in the program’s history. But despite being one of the best teams in Class 6A across the state, there were some clear gaps between Wetumpka and the other top-tier programs.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since people completely lost their minds leading up to the year 2000. All anyone wanted to talk about was Y2K and how everything was going to “shut down” at the stroke of midnight.
We have two men who were elected to statewide constitutional offices last year, who seem to be doing a good job. They are both working quietly and diligently in their new posts.

To the surprise of college football fans around the world Saturday, the game in Athens, Georgia between UGA and South Carolina was actually worth watching. Well, let me rephrase: it was worth seeing to the result.
The Los Angeles Rams acquired All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars for two first-round NFL Draft picks (2020 and 2021) and a fourth-round pick (2021).
The Auburn Tigers have arrived at the halfway point of the 2019 season. As of now, the Tigers (5-1, 2-1) sit just outside the top 10, ranked No. 11 in both major polls.
Are we seeing the last days of America? According to the media pundits, we are in a “constitutional crisis.” The executive branch and the legislative branch are in an all-out war with each other. No one seems to trust the Supreme Court anymore. I worry daily things are going to come to viole…
Last weekend we held Lake Martin Living’s inaugural Art Walk throughout downtown Alexander City and had a successful turnout and enjoyable event — despite a short rain shower in the middle of the day.
Tuesday evening Sen. Doug Jones went to Auburn University to speak to the student Democratic club and others who knew about the town hall type meeting. About 100 students and adults arrived to hear him speak about kitchen-table issues.
The Carolina Panthers drafted Cam Newton with the first overall pick of the 2011 NFL draft. Newton has been a standout talent since his youth. A three-sport athlete as a youngster, Newton gave up baseball and basketball at 14 to pursue a career in football.
The second year of the reign of Gov. Kay Ivey may give her a second major accomplishment in the first two years of her term as governor.
We have a new preacher at Eagle Creek Baptist Church here on the outskirts of Dadeville, but before I get into that I have to just throw it out there: We don’t always go to church, but when we do, we go to Eagle Creek.
