Prior to 2020, the year that many people point to as one of the most chaotic in U.S.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

I figured I’d return to my network origins series.  Today I’ll focus on CBS.  The Colombia Broadcasting System began in 1927 when talent agent Arthur Judson, unable to obtain work for any of his clients on the radio programs carried the National Broadcasting Company(NBC), established his own network, United Independent Broadcasters.  From 22 stations in 1928, the network gre

EDITORIAL: Protests and Police

A lot can happen in a week, especially given our 24-hour cable news cycle and society’s growing addiction to social media.  We went from a horrible killing of a black man by the hands of police in Minneapolis that was condemned by all to peaceful protests, then to violent looting, rioting, burning and the killing of innocents.  Now, we seem to be in the hangover phase where a growing chorus of people and politici

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

As pandemic guidelines have relaxed a bit regarding gatherings, family members have come the past two Sundays to eat lunch with me. A blessing! We scattered throughout my house and yard, giving one another a bit of space. Hopefully, the following recipes will provide options as you plan your meals during this warm-weather season.

Cheryl Hughes: When I Grow Up, I’m Going to Need Some Help

In the movie “Home Alone,” eight-year-old Kevin McCallister declares, “When I grow up and get married, I’m living alone!”  He proceeds to jump up and down on his parents’ bed, chanting, “I’m living alone!  I’m living alone!”  Remember this scene, I will reference it later.

Jarrod Jacobs: The Devil Doesn't Sleep

This statement was made to me by 96 year-old lady. After she said this, I thought about how much she has seen and experienced. She can surely attest to the fact that “the Devil doesn’t sleep”! Her statement is not a Bible quote, but it reflects a Bible statement found in I Peter 5:8.

OPINION: Agents of Chaos

OUT ON A LIMB:  By John Embry

As I was walking around the courthouse lawn during the peaceful protest in Morgantown on Tuesday, I was drawn to the statue in the front-center of the yard.  “Erected by Citizens of Morgantown and Vicinity “ in 1907, the monument is fairly unique in that it honors war veterans from Butler County during the Civil War from both the Union and Confederacy.  Interesting that the community came together in that way to

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

Time to get under the covers, or behind the covers, as it were.  The other day I was listening to ‘60’s on 6 on SiriusXM when I heard the song “Devil With a Blue Dress “.  It was not, however, the Mitch Ryder version that most of us know.  The song was originally recorded in 1964 by Shorty Long and was titled “Devil With The Blue Dress”.  Long was signed to a Motown label that specialized in Soul recordings, and this was the first single for the label.  Long wrote the song with Motown producer Mickey Stevenson.  I noticed immediately when the song came on the radio that his version is very

EDITORIAL: Timing, not money, main objection to magistrate pay bump

The WLBQ football broadcasting team sometimes talks about the importance of timing and angles as it relates to specific plays and overall how the game is played.  They have some fun with the analogy and take some liberties, of course, but there is an inherent truth to the concept of timing and angles in sports.  That truth also extends to politics and the decisions of government leaders.
