Rich: The ethics of moonshining

When the Chattanooga Better Business Bureau hired me as the keynote speaker for its annual luncheon, the president and CEO was very specific on what he wanted me to talk.

Morgan: Not the Fed

Watching this year's presidential campaign has been interesting, to say the least. There's obviously a lot of pent-up citizen anger about "Washington" and "the Establishment." A 2015 study by the Pew Research Center indicated only 19 percent of those surveyed indicated trust in the federal government. There was a lot of the same kind of anger about when I voted in my first presidential election back in 1972. The famous humorist Will Rogers made a career out of poking fun at Washington, even back in the 1930s. The more things change, the more they stay the same, I ...

Tatum: Happy landings

Once upon a time, there was this annoying little kid named Jimmy who loved to fly. He wasn't crazy about wearing his Sunday best to board a plane, but he loved the adventure and especially the attention the hot stewardesses gave him.

Cahn: Revisiting the car ‘rules’ at CMS

THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 2016 -- It's about 7:30 a.m. and I'm driving my younger son to Camden Middle School (CMS). During the next 10 minutes, I am subjected to poor choices on the part of my fellow CMS parents when it comes to dropping off their kids at school.

Richardson: African-American ‘Photo Scan Days’ at the Archives

In 2010, Camden resident Barbara Brown was strolling through a yard sale when she spied something she could not pass up. What she discovered was a collection of Brownie photos and assorted older photographs from about the 1910s through the 1940s featuring an African-American family. In it were old formal portraits, school photos from Mather Academy, and candid shots of families posing in front yards and living rooms, on bicycles and in front of prized rose bushes. They are loving and lovely photographs of an active family as they journeyed through the generations -- 98 images in all. She bought the ...

Parker: Pope Bernie

WASHINGTON -- Imagine emerging from a rocky political week only to announce, as Bernie Sanders did, oh, by the way, the Vatican called. Actually, it was the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, but close enough, I suppose.

Rich: The names on a wall

On a day that I was visiting someone in a nursing home, angels, disguised as caregivers, came in and requested I step out while they worked. I walked down the hall, observing a life which caused me to ponder the circle of life.

My Brain on NASCAR - April 12, 2016

It certainly isn't famous faces in Victory Lane. In the six races so far this season, we have seen Winner's Circle celebrations for Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson (twice). Flags have flown, crowds have cheered and confetti has drifted down like rain.

Cahn: The right taxes for the right reasons

Parker: The people’s race

WASHINGTON -- The spectacular strangeness of this presidential election may require a new display in Ripley's Odditorium of believe-it-or-nots.

Joseph: Politics and kids are a tough duo

I thought explaining the birds and the bees to my children was difficult and unpleasant enough, but compared to the current presidential campaign tossed up with a little mud, dirt and the color orange, discussing how babies are made is a cake walk to say the least. Good grief!
