This is usually the time of year where I would put out all my picks for the high school football season. I would tell you all about why there is no reason to watch Class 7A this season as one team will take away any chance of climactic postseason football. Or you would be reading up on my pr…
As you know, the football season is just around the corner with high school and college regular season games beginning next week. However, for one final time this summer, I’m here to talk about what to pay attention to across the pond with the football season underway.
Humble brag incoming: I love being a part of the Alabama Sports Writers Association. Getting to be a part of the voting committee for high school sports rankings is something I do not take for granted.
Last week I wrote about how student-athletes are putting in work year-round for just a few short months of actual play. I wrote about how important that offseason work was for building team chemistry, getting bigger, stronger and faster and bonding as one unit.
Greetings from the Love’s Travel Stop just south of Huntsville. I just spoke to the teachers of Huntsville City Schools at the Von Braun Center. There were between 2,500 and 3,000 in attendance. It was an awesome experience.
Our Founding Fathers didn’t prepare us for this. When they were penning their names on parchment paper during the Constitutional Convention in 1787, they felt the words they were writing could guide us and keep us civil. They worked long and hard to get the Constitution just right. They were…
Greetings from the corner of Bridge and Bridge. We are beginning the process of rebuilding our church facility here at First Presbyterian. We hope to have a rebuilt sanctuary, offices and classrooms open for business in a year’s time. Thanks to everyone for the continued prayers and support.
I’ve been working at Tallapoosa Publishers Inc. for more than two years now, as I just hit my two-year anniversary May 22. While it’s been sort of a whirlwind and there have been ups and downs, I love my job and I am thankful to be here.
I’ve been in Alexander City for more than two years and spent two great summers here, but there’s still so much I haven’t done. The life of a sports editor is a busy one; I’m constantly running from one event to another, trying to cover all our area sports as best as possible and attempting …
As the spring sports schedule started winding down, I have to admit I got a little bit excited knowing I was going to have some nights to myself without work for a while. Between baseball, softball and soccer, there was very little time for rest.
The most gifted teenagers in Elmore County are expected to enjoy fame, prosperity and achievement but will nonetheless experience failure and despair at some point in their lives.
Chronic illness is similar to mental illness in it isn’t widely advocated for, it’s something many don’t understand or have much knowledge of and it’s hard to talk about.
We’ve all heard the warnings about social media postings before. Whatever is posted on the internet stays there forever. You can never truly delete something. Those posts can follow you forever.
Even if you missed what happened at Churchill Downs on Saturday, there is no doubt you saw a post on social media about how instant replay was ruining another sports moment. After “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” appeared to be over, there were people in a small video room determini…
Folks, taking care of prisoners is not a popular political issue. However, every so often Alabama politicians pragmatically have to acquiesce to the mandates of federal judges and grant our transgressing citizens their rights as determined by the courts.
In his book “The Fellowship of the Ring,” J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, “The road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the road has gone, and I must follow, if I can, pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And wh…
Over the course of my 25 years on this planet, I have had my fair share of encounters with doctors across the state of Alabama. Across 15 surgeries and numerous checkups, it is easy to say several of them have made a lasting impact on my life and my family.
With the passing of spring break, the end of the school year is in sight. Spring assessments are in progress for our third- through eighth-graders, and high school seniors are anxiously looking forward to graduation day.
Gov. Kay Ivey has been inaugurated and the legislature had its organizational session. Now it’s time for our state officials to get to work.
Everyone from Gov. Kay Ivey to the 1,000 volunteers who quickly mobilized to help have been in awe not only of the power of nature, as seen in Saturday’s tornado that ravaged the city’s west side Saturday afternoon, but of Wetumpka’s recuperative spirit.
Regardless of what happens in Donald Trump’s administration over the next two years, he will have a proven record of success as president, especially among conservative Americans.
You cannot get used to seeing that kind of destruction — trees through windows, roads shut down, horrified looks on everyone’s face. This is not what you want to see in your community.
Every once in a while, an NFL team looks so good after a few games, people begin to look down the schedule to see how long an undefeated season can actually last. We may never see another team run the table in the regular season en route to a Super Bowl title.
