It seems as though each region of the country has its own weather obstacles to contend with when it comes to school closings and sport cancellations.

Some of the policies associated with the weather issues make sense, but others leave me scratching my head.

Fall has arrived as of September 22. But for local athletes in all fall sports, they are halfway through their respective seasons.

It wasn’t always this way though. I’m old enough to remember when fall high school sports actually coincided with the start of the fall season.

I caught a glimpse of the future last week and all is not lost.

Yes, there are problems in this world, but they can also be looked at as possibilities.

Some of you might not realize this about me, but I’m very competitive and I’m not a good loser.

I was once told by a professor in the Speech Communication Department at the University of Tennessee that I was the most competitive person he had ever known. Of course, that was before some guy named Peyton Manning arrived at Tennessee and had the same professor.

This week I celebrated six months back at the News Bulletin. To say that it has been everything I had hoped for would be an understatement.

I am blessed to be working for Sandi Kemp’s team. And I’m even more blessed to be back in North Okaloosa County doing the job I love the most.

Studies show that single men don’t live as long as their married counterparts.

The same study shows married women don’t live as long as single women. I’ll let you decide what that means for yourself.

Some numbers jump off the pages of sports screaming for attention.

It has been 81 summers since Major League Baseball witnessed Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak and Ted Williams batting .406.

I don’t know if I’ve ever been more excited about the start of a new school year and the return of fall sports.

It has been way too long since I was on a high school football sideline for games that matter. I can say the same thing about high school volleyball.

In the coming weeks there will be a lot going on as fall sports arrive full blast.

This is the time of year I most need help from local coaches. Preparing for the start of the school year and all that goes with it means getting everyone’s information updated, with schedules for your teams and a team photo. And I’m not just talking about football.
