Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain/Scott Hall

One of my favorite shows is the ESPN news show E:60.  They do a lot of human interest stories, most times to do with athletes overcoming odds or sports making a difference.  Last week they had a story on one of my favorite wrestling personalities: Scott Hall.  If you were a fan of wrestling anywhere near the ‘90’s until the mid-2000, you most likely saw Scott perform.

A rite of passage is a ritual event that marks a person's progress from one status to another. Rites of passage are often ceremonies surrounding events related to puberty, coming of age, marriage and death. In North America today, typical rites of passage are baptisms, bar mitzvahs and confirmations, school graduation ceremonies, weddings, retirement parties, and funerals.  They mark important changes.

Cheryl Hughes: My Career As a Woman

Unless This Is An Emergency: In our early marriage, my husband, Garey, who didn’t understand how my mind works, often accused me of being selfish toward him and our children.  “You have sections of time for us, but you don’t include us in your whole life,” he would say.  He was right, and I used to feel guilty about it, because I didn’t know how to explain what it was like to be me.

Occupy Public Pension Feeding Troughs

“Fairness” apparently becomes hip only when it benefits the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd, which promotes a philosophy of wealth distribution while shunning gainful employment, respect for property and proper hygiene.
What if the OWS (Offering Worthless Shenanigans) gang knew about the corporate scam run by teachers’ unions in Kentucky? Included among the more than 1,700 organizations participating in the commonwealth’s ailing public pension system are private – private – organizations, like the Kentucky Education Association, the state’s teachers’ union.

Don Locke: Looking Through Bifocals

Someone said we can never look down a new road with the same ease and comfort an old familiar one brings.  We can never be fully prepared for that which is wholly new.  There was a Russian novelist, a guy by the name of Dostoeviski (If you can pronounce it let me know too.), who put it this way “Taking a new step, uttering a new word is what people fear most.”

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

Although we know we’ll die someday, many of us have not written a Last Will and Testament. Approximately 55 percent of American adults do not have a will in place, according to LexisNexis, a legal resource center. This number has been fairly steady during the 2000s, when other estate planning documents, such as medical directives, have become more common.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain/Back When

Saturday night while watching the NASCAR race, I saw a Chevy truck commercial that sparked the subject of this piece.  This little boy was playing with his toy truck, as little boys do, and he hears the sound of an engine nearing.  His dad was coming home from work in his Chevy. The truck is a grown replica of the boy’s toy.  I believe the tagline is “Chevy Runs Deep”. That certainly fit this scenario.

Boys Will Be Men: From personal observation—and I realize that doesn’t mean it’s set in stone—it seems that boys without a positive role model and direction, struggle more than girls who don’t have a positive female role model.  Maybe, it’s because women are such nurturers.  If we see a young person struggling—male or female—we tend to take them under our wing.  That’s all fine and good, but women can’t provide male perspective.  (Before I continue, I apologize to all of the feminists upon whose toes I will inevitably tread.)

Let’s lead horses to water, not faucets

The life of British Lt. Col. T. E. Lawrence was portrayed in “Lawrence of Arabia,” a famous film of the early 1960s.

This was a rare case where the real-life experiences of the man whose name graced the title of the box-office hit were at least as adventurous as anything portrayed by the great Peter O’Toole, a virtual unknown made into a star by the movie.
