I am very rarely an over-pessimistic kind of person, but I have unfortunately started to see that side of me come through a little more over the past few weeks as sports leagues across the country developed plans to return to the field or court despite all signs suggesting otherwise.
If you have already listened to last week’s episode of Inside the Lines Podcast, you already know my thoughts on high school athletes returning to practice June 1. I am craving the return of sports as much as everyone else but I have to admit I’m a little worried an early return during the t…
I always see social media posts when people want to single out a family member or friend to celebrate birthdays or holidays but I never participated in those myself. I never have a problem with those posts and it certainly doesn’t mean I don’t care when it’s my friends’ birthdays or anything…

Why is it a heartbroken mother who just lost her daughter to an evil crime is out on the front lines preaching to parents about protecting their children?
It’s Nov. 2 and that means — well, in my world anyway — it’s practically Thanksgiving and Christmas has basically arrived. I’m already ready for my Christmas tree and all the pine-scented candles. Let’s break out the Buffalo plaid and go ahead and stock up on wrapping paper. It’s time for th…
As the fall sports seasons begin to wind down, the winter sports are trying to sneak to center stage. Monday marked the first official day of basketball season as teams were allowed to take to the court for organized practice for the first time.
