  • Newspapers fight back

    OK, newspaper folks. It’s time to pick ourselves off the ground and fight back. There is plenty of time left on the clock, and our fans — more than 100 million loyal readers — are pulling for us to win. So here’s how we rally.

    First and foremost, we have to ignore those self-proclaimed pundits and cynics who believe that newspapers are dead. They are dead wrong.

  • The important thing is that God’s people worship

    Before the worship service started we had eaten dinner together, me with my tape recorder and notebook by my side.

    I don’t normally go to church on Wednesday nights, but I had come to New Beginnings Fellowship in Hernando, Fla., for a Religion page feature story and to take notes about their worship.

    As the people entered the sanctuary, some grabbed musical instruments from a cardboard box in the back of the room — maracas and wooden sticks, cymbals and tambourines. During the first song, people used the instruments, making their own music.

  • Sanders struggles on back nine

    Junior golfer Eric Sanders was in good shape to make the cut at the Leachman Buick/Pontiac/GMC/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Championships on Tuesday at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    He was seven over par on the day with two holes to play, but finished with a triple bogey and double bogey for an 18-hole score of 84.

    “That probably won’t make the cut, but we’ll stay down here for another day, just to make sure,” said HCHS golf coach Jason Crisp.
