Cheryl Hughes: My Career As a Woman

New Teacher: I forget that my sister, Marsha, prays for me until I’m in one of those tight spots where it’s going to take more than my conversations with God to get me through.  It’s not that I think God doesn’t listen to me when I call on him.  He does.  But Marsha has His cell number, and things start to happen when she calls.

Out on a Limb: Athletics in the crosshairs at BCHS

John Embry

High school athletics has been a hot topic the last few days following a proposal put forth by BCHS Principal Patrick O'Driscoll, a former coach himself, and approved by the school's SBDM council.  To combat budget woes, the measure would eliminate seven athletic teams at the school, as well an assistant coach from each remaining one and rein in transportation costs.  Needless to say, a proposal of this sort was met with much skepticism and criticism from many in the community.

Tiffany Hampton: Life in Logansport

Its very interesting how so many things in life come around full circle. Most of all, I think that our relationships happen this way. For instance, the parent/child relationship. Both sides of that relationship will come full circle.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain/Kindle Spirits

I thought about calling this “Fire Down Below” but decided against it.  I received my Kindle Fire this past Christmas.  As much as I consider myself a techno-geek or maybe just a geek in general, I wouldn’t give into getting a Kindle or iPod.  Now I have both! Recently I thought, why not a top ten list of why a Kindle is better than a book”? So, here we go.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

I, like many of you, watched the State of the Union address last week. Many of us may take this report for granted and grumble a bit about the interruption of regular television programming. According to Bill Carter (New York Times), the January 25th State of the Union address had a decline in viewers compared to previous years. I was not surprised.

Don Locke: Looking Through Bifocals

I see where the HARLEM GLOBE TROTTERS are, or were, back in our area recently.

When they were at the top of their success back in the late 1940s and fifties . . . and into the sixties, some of the sports "experts" said they were good tricksters and ball handlers, but they really couldn't play basketball . . . "Just a bunch of razzle-dazzle." The TROTTERS got wind of this and challenged that year's winners of the NBA to a game. The GLOBE TROTTERS BEAT THEM. The NBA said it was a fluke. To prove it wasn't an accident, they played a second game. They beat the NBA champs again.

Cheryl Hughes: My Career As a Woman

Testy: When I moved back from Texas in 2008, I assumed I would be able to jump back into the job market in Kentucky with no problem.  I had a college education, after all, as well as tons of experience.  Boy was I wrong!

Tiffany Hampton: Life in Logansport

I have come to the conclusion that there must be a medical condition which takes place while a man watches TV. That is unless I am the only wife in the world who has a husband that loses all his hearing ability when sitting in front of the TV. I'm thinking that it's a safe bet that I'm not alone on this one!

John Embry's Out on a Limb: A Party for Prostitutes?

For this week's installment of Out on a Limb, we travel to Louisville for a softball convention, reflect on the Chamber of Commerce's first luncheon of 2012, ponder the meaning of "A Party for Prostitutes," and get an Independence Day update — not a good one.  So, let's get started!

Andy Sullivan's Against the Grain: Coming Back Stronger

Drew Brees is the superstar quarterback for Superbowl XLIV.  However, he is much more.  I recently read his book, Coming Back Stronger, on my Kindle Fire I received for Christmas.  While reading the book, which I couldn’t put down, I realized Drew Brees is much more than a superstar quarterback.
