    It is difficult to find the words to describe one's thoughts about the death of a young man like Nick Taylor. It is unimaginable to know the grief and pain being suffered by his family.

    Mel Gibson has become the movie star folks love to kick around. First, when he made PASSION OF THE CHRIST, folks in Hollywood laughed at him ... until the movie became a blockbuster. When he went through his public divorce he was ridiculed.

    This year’s fall sports preview hits shelves and living rooms tomorrow evening and after completing it, I have to say, I’m stoked about fall sports!
    There are so many unanswered questions that I just can’t wait to see the answers to as the season progresses.

    What a Summer Olympics.
    I could stop right there an it would sum up nicely how fantastic the London Games have been and not just for the United States.
    You just don’t understand how fast Usain Bolt is until you actually see him run…unless you blinked and missed him run.
    The United States’ women’s gymnastics were absolutely as stellar as advertised with America’s sweethearts earning the gold and doing well individually.

    It’s impossible to begin today’s entry anywhere other than with the tragic death of Spc. Nick Taylor, the young man who gave his life in Afghanistan and will be laid to rest next Tuesday in his native Berne.

    Okay, so Penn State got the almost-death penalty and its football program is more than decimated, it's obliterated. Well deserved.
    But does anyone REALLY think the culture, as some have suggested, is going to change? Oh, sure, for a time — maybe six months, maybe a year — the money monster that is college football may go a bit slower. But by the time the 2013 season rolls around we'll venture to say college football will be right back where it was before the Jerry Sandusky thing hit the fan.

    When I saw the trailer for LOCKOUT before it hit theaters I thought it looked interesting but not enough for me to shell out the $8 for a matinee ticket. Actually, there are few movies these days that make me feel that way.
    So I'm happy to report that the movie, just released on DVD, is well worth that $8 and more. No, it's not LAWRENCE OF ARABIA but it does offer plenty of entertainment for your money.

    The Olympics are drawing near but rather than soil the games with my thoughts before anything actually happens, I thought I’d write about another love of mine that is drawing near…FANTASY FOOTBALL!
    I know that some of you may not share my love for this fictional sport and maybe even think it’s just plain silly but I think that it’s a step up from having an imaginary friend seeing as how you use actual athletes and you play against actual people.

    That a storm which ripped through here on June 29 caused widespread damage is well-known. What isn't known but to only a few people is the tale of the "storm" which hit the communications center in the county jail that day, due to the storm outside.
    The comm center received 915 calls via the 911 lines. No, that's not a typo: 915 calls. Nine hundred and fifteen.

    Nicolas Cage has made some great movies and some bad. The sad truth is that lately he's made more mediocre films than ever. Perhaps that's because he's been making them at such a frantic pace; or at least it seems that way. In any event his latest thrille,r SEEKING JUSTICE, offers a decent night's entertainment but still finds itself in that so-so stack of Cage films.
