  • Douglas hails Summitt a coach for life

    Former Tennessee and Andrew Jackson High School basketball star Karla Douglas, the former Karla Horton, called the passing of her UT Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt “another gut punch.”

    Five months ago, she lost her husband David, a former Tennessee standout lineman who later played in the NFL with Cincinnati and New England, to brain cancer. Some five years ago, she lost her son, Aaron, who also played college football.

  • Column: Justice system out of whack in our country

    Our so-called justice system is upside down, which I believe is caused by progressives from both political parties.
    Progressives are not in politics to do what is right but to provide themselves power over people’s lives.
    I have some examples to share.
    We have a candidate for president who is under investigation for possible criminal actions while serving as a cabinet member. But do not worry about her. A pardon is coming soon from the current president.

  • Column: Mr. Noble should stick to topics he understands

    Another article from Phil Noble has graced our local paper, but I begin to grow weary of Mr. Noble’s columns.
    It’s not his ability that bothers me – he is a good writer –but rather his content and conclusions. And yes, I am aware that there are probably many who would share similar feelings toward my contributions here.

    Motes and the W12 car of Keith Woolford battled for the top spot when the green flag waved. Woolford grabbed the early lead, while Motes gave chase.

    Coming to the white flag, Motes was all over Woolford’s back bumper, pushing him down the front straightaway.

  • Column: S.C. moving in right direction on race

    In the early days of World War II, the British, standing nearly alone, suffered a number of huge defeats. And then in November 1942, they won a major victory defeating Gen. Rommel’s forces in North Africa.
    In reporting this victory to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

  • Column: We don’t need the disaffected

    Is there a point in everyone’s life where you just sit back and say, “Enough is enough?”
    It seems that with every news cycle, there is another story about an American finding fault with this country. Does anyone but me see this?
    We achieved our reputation and world standing through the generations that America has existed due to our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
