Every once in a while, one sees or hears about a notable example of sportsmanship at some event, and it seems like such incidents are “notable” simply because they happen.
Last week, political columnist and commentator Steve Flowers wrote in this newspaper about the state’s “education governor,” Charles Henderson of Pike County.
Economic Development has three key principles: Pride of Place, a strong and willing workforce and a forward-thinking mindset. Tallassee has parts and percentages of all three elements, but if we could get everyone on the same page and singing from the same songbook – who knows what the futur…
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20
This column ran exactly one year ago this week here in the TRIBUNE. To this day, I have people approaching me and attacking me for this column; I stand by the views expressed here..

I am revisiting this column that originally ran in the spring of 2013. There has been an incredible amount of loss in our community over the past few months. This was written when I was younger and it was one of the first times I had experienced the death of someone my own age.
As we finished 2020 with its pandemic, political strife and social turmoil, I heard many people express hope that the new year would be better. Many of us and people we love experienced so much sickness and sadness last year. You probably agree that 2020 was a rough one.
The PBS series “Masterpiece Theatre” turns 50 in 2021, and in January the program began airing a new British series that is well worth your time. In fact, it just may be the salve we need in these troubled times.
Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! - Psalm 117:1-2
Let’s talk about the First Amendment for a second. Now for those of you who love to throw the verbiage of that first, most elementary facet of American life into the conversation - have you ever stopped to actually look at the words?
When was the last time you earnestly searched for something or someone? I lost a wallet once that I never did find, but it was not for lack of earnest seeking. You may know what it’s like to lose your keys or your money, or maybe a beloved pet. I hope you don’t know what it is like to have a…
So here we are sportsfans, some days into 2021 and the “New Year, New Me’’ posts are slowly starting to appear on the ol’ book of faces. I’m not going to make such a bold prediction because, let’s face it, at 40 there’s not much changing. I’m still going to be the ray of sarcastic, cynical s…
The twelve days of Christmas begins on December 25 and ends on the Epiphany January 6, so we’re smack-dab in the middle of the “real” Christmas season (even though the rest of the world thinks it starts in October and ends before Santa Claus can even warm up the sleigh).
I wasn't alive in 1886 and neither were you. I've never been to Brockton, Massachusetts, and I doubt very many of my dear readers have been there, either. But something happened in that town 134 years ago that touched my life and maybe yours as well.
You may hear people say, "I am giving this up for Lent," or "this Christmas, I will start doing this." I am not a big fan of doing somehing only for Advent or Lent and then going back to our regular life.
Leslie Ogburn spoke out against the proposed prison last Tuesday night before a well-attended audience in Tallassee City Hall. She made her case in a most effective way against what we believe was the secretive way Mayor Johnny Hammock went about the process of trying to bring a prison to ou…
Just FYI, I wrote this after some folks who didn't know the real situation spewed negative things about the Humane Society of Elmore County. This is not targeted at any one person, just trying to educate/inform people.
Well, Turkey Day 2020 has come and gone — or as my youngest daughter says, ‘Thanksgiving 2.0.’ Now we are shifting gears and heading fast into the Christmas season. I love the holiday season because we are typically more cheerful during this time.
