  • Column: Finding a church that feeds my soul

    When I was a little girl, my mama said she was a Methodist, but my daddy was a Baptist, so we were Baptists. That was that.
    I’ve often wondered what the difference was between the two denominations. I found out about a month ago, after I started attending Grace United Methodist Church. From the children to the men and women with their smiles and their hugs welcoming me there, I immediately felt at home.
    My soul was happy.

  • Sports Talk: Joe Hegler a special friend to many

    As many folks know that was the last football game the late Joe Hegler saw his beloved T-Dogs play. When it was over, Joe was tailgating with friends when he had a fatal heart attack. The ultimate ecstacy of winning and the emotional pain of a deep loss.
