Demented

By Dr. Jim Ferguson We’ve all seen it. What a tragedy when a loved one or a friend begins to fail. Once it was called senility because failing mental faculties were associated with the aged. However, the most common cause of cognitive decline (dementia) is  Alzheimer’s Disease and can occur in younger people like Coach […]

Notary Public: What Does that Title Mean?

By Jedidiah McKeehan At some point in your life, you’ve probably had to have an important document notarized, and there has been this section at the bottom for a “Notary Public” to confirm that you are who you say you are and they witnessed you sign this document.  Sounds weird, and a little unnecessary, so […]

Recipes

By Rosie Moore Kroger’s is my favorite place to do my grocery shopping and they reward me by sending me money-saving coupons and also delicious recipes.

Steamed Kitchen Windows

  By Alex Norman It says something that the biggest game of the Butch Jones era at Tennessee was taking place 650 miles away between two teams that didn’t have “Vols” in their nicknames. When Florida held on to beat LSU, Tennessee’s chances of winning the SEC East for the first time in 9 years […]

Mainstream Media Has Learned Nothing

By Steve Hunley Following the election of Donald Trump it was readily apparent to even the mainstream news media they had not only missed the boat, but weren’t even at the right dock.  The publisher and chief editor of the New York Times assured readers the Grey Lady would “rededicate” herself to what it considered […]

Senator Howard Baker, Part Eight

Senator Howard Baker, Part Eight

By Ray Hill Fresh from his titanic reelection victory in 1972, Howard Baker returned to the United States Senate on the cusp of becoming a national figure.

The “New” American Revolution

By Dr. Jim Ferguson I’m having trouble understanding the Trump “derangement syndrome.” This syndrome seems to occur when a President other than a Democrat is elected.
