    Gracie Revels will never forget her first home run – she was 12.

    She comes to bat and her mom’s in the restroom.

    Gracie swings, heads for first, and sees the first base umpire spinning his finger around and around and around, signaling a homer.

    
She’s rounding second when her mother walks out of the bathroom and hears. “Gracie just hit a home run!”

    Gracie remembers her momma screaming and jumping all around.

  • Column: Foolish stupidity! Do NOT transmit your nude photos!

    I would like to make two points in regard to the news article in the March 16 paper entitled “Rep. Norrell: Make ‘revenge porn’ illegal.”
    Point one: Foolishness. As Mark Manicone reported in his article: “According to the Data and Society Research Institute, one in every 25 Americans have been affected by revenge porn and one in 10 young women have been threatened with the public posting of explicit images.”
