    It’s amazing what an off-season can do for a program.
    Just ask Bellmont football coach Larry Getts who has his Braves off to a 2-0 start including a fantastic showing in Berne against another program on the rise in South Adams.

    With all of the ‘roid rage going on in the MLB, there were bound to be guys who got off the juice and had off seasons at the plate. By the same logic, there are plenty of pitchers having fantastic years as evidenced by the third perfect game of the baseball season August 15 by Seattle’s Felix Hernandez. It was the first perfect game of the Mariners’ franchise history.
    That got me thinkin…

    Bit of a tough night at city council.

    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.

    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.

    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.
