  • What a riot!

     I could take this time to complain about a lot of things. I have not had the best few weeks of my life, and it seems like nothing has gone right. My car broke down, for good, I made a few errors last week, I have been broke and just plain crabby. 

    But, my problems are miniscule compared to the real problems going on in the world right now. 

  • Only human

     Last week, I made a huge mistake. 

    And by huge, I am not exaggerating. 

    I misread an email sent to me by Marion County High School Track Coach Daniel Johnson.

    His email was a response to some questions I was asking about their last track meet. 

  • Please, don’t smoke

     I used to be a smoker – a big time one.

    On average, I was a pack and a half a day chimney (though I had on more than several occasions, surpassed the two pack a day mark).

    I did this for 11 years. 

  • Are more helmets needed?

     I usually start these things off with “What a week!” or some corny thing like that, but I won’t this time. Nope, things this week are a bit serious, in fact.

    The Knights baseball opened its season March 19 by defeating the Washington County Commanders, 4-3, at Idle Park in Springfield. 

  • Seasons change

     For some reason, I always end up writing these columns on Sunday morning and this one is no exception. It’s actually a good day to be writing — cold, cloudy and dreary. With that said, all I can say is, it’s been a week of transitions in the sports world. 

    With high school basketball season at an end, I am at a loss for words. For the last four months, I have followed the Lady Knights through many games. Some good, some bad, some outrageous. 

  • These are your stories, photos

     The other evening I was at Roby Dome, no surprise, right? Well, it was Will Phillips’ last night on the job for The Enterprise, so I had the night off for the most part. 

    After doing some light reporting, I took on my role as a civilian to watch the game. 

    During the time between quarters, I went to use the restroom, and you’ll never guess what I found!

  • Curling is cool

    Our bodies are miraculous machines. To think, though we are fragile creatures, our complex structures make us capable of so much.
    This year’s Winter Olympics are a prime example of what the human body can or cannot do.
    As I watched the athletes cut through the snow like a blade through white fluff, or glide across the ice like a jet aircraft, I was reminded that while we are capable of some pretty ugly deeds, we are also capable of some beautiful ones too.

  • Almost in Olympic spirits

     Industrialization. Empty shells of buildings. Soot. What am I talking about, you ask? The slums of Cleveland? War-torn Bosnia? 

    No, silly. I’m talking about the Winter Games and their host city, Sochi.
