Pro legacy will lure Saban from Alabama

If not for a late night splurge at a strip club, Nick Saban could have been a mere footnote in the history of college football.

Echo Taps

I can still hear the sound. Though many years have passed and many memories have drifted along the ebb and flow of my consciousness, I can still hear the sound.

Changing channels

WASHINGTON -- No one forced me, but I finally decided it was time to discover what all the business was about Honey Boo Boo.

The sound of (mostly) silence

Last April, I wrote an article called "Switching frequencies" about how local agencies were on track to meet federal emergency communication mandates. In short -- and this is a somewhat complex issue -- local agencies all across the country needed to meet "interoperability" and "narrowbanding" requirements by Dec. 31.

Stop the virus of Chicago violence

For once, Chicago has beaten New York in a competition that the Windy City had no desire to win. Chicago ended 2012 with more homicides than the Big Apple. No cheers for that.

Message board mania

It doesn't take a genius -- or even a dim-witted newspaper columnist -- to know that the practice of communicating in 2013 is nothing like it was a decade ago.

The future of home economics

A friend of mine recently posted a piece from The American Conservative entitled "A Radical Defense of Home Economics" on Facebook. The article highlighted an essay called "Workingman's Bread" in New Inquiry by Christine Baumgarthuber on the "history and possible future of home economics classes."

El futuro habla espanol

WASHINGTON -- The new year has begun with an avalanche of Republican retrospectives: What went wrong? What must the GOP do?

Despite setbacks, Nadal will remain first-rate

It's been more than six months since former world No. 1 tennis player Rafael Nadal has played competitively on the ATP tour, but tennis fans shouldn't be counting out the 26-year-old Spaniard in 2013.

A hidden side to Honey Boo Boo

It was hardly surprising for Time magazine to choose President Barack Obama to be its "Person of the Year." But for a new face that represents the spirit of these times, I believe a serious argument can be made for Alana Thompson, better known to many as TLC's pint-sized reality-TV star, Honey Boo Boo.

The best Star Trek started 20 years ago

My love of science fiction, especially Star Trek, is well known to long-time readers. I have enjoyed every incarnation, from the original, somewhat campy series of the 1960s to the 2009 "reboot" movie by J.J. Abrams. I've enjoyed each series, but -- and this may surprise some people -- none more than Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Trends: are they important?

A friend of mine recently commented about his 30-pound overweight problem, "You know, Teal, I looked down at my waist and realized the pounds had just crept up on me over the years." That's the nature of trends. Some develop slowly while some others develop quicker and become more noticeable.

Plots and clots

WASHINGTON -- The new year began not with a cannonball off the fiscal cliff but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism.

Lincoln freed us for this?

No slavery is quite as pernicious as that which we impose on ourselves.

A family history of military service

Ready to travel the world, Ronald Moss joined the U.S. Army in 1946. He went to Ft. Bennon, Ga.; Ft. Louis, Wash.; Camp Stoneman, Calif.; the Philippines; Hawaii; and learned to speak Japanese while in Japan. He was a part of the Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II. During his time in the military, he graduated from the National Radio Institute and worked as a radio technician.

During this holiday season, I'm thankful for:

Would you rather be taxed or fined?

WASHINGTON -- Don't tax you, don't tax me. Tax that feller behind the tree.

A cry for justice

Well, folks, after more than three months of speculation, of debates, of arguing, bickering and online name calling, a grand jury in St. Louis County, Mo., finally came to a conclusion earlier this week. The 12-person panel was presented with and studied all the evidence in the case of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August and concluded there were no indications that Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson committed any crime when he shot and killed Brown.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Yes, I know it's only just Thanksgiving but, admit it, many of you will be getting out the holiday lights and wreaths from the attic this weekend or going to buy your Christmas tree! Here at the city, we've had to start early as it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Our street and electric department crews have been diligently working to decorate for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, we'll have embellished light poles throughout the city and a lot of lit trees, too.

Owens: Things we take for granted

As much as I love Christmas, I have to give Thanksgiving just as much acknowledgement -- unlike a lot of television networks.

Gov. Haley in India -- good, travel more

Gov. Haley recently took an 11-day trip to India. There are some who are grumbling, calling her trip just another post-election junket by a politician.

Parker: The Cosby Show

WASHINGTON -- By now, most Americans probably have formed an opinion about what comedian Bill Cosby did or didn't do sexually to or with at least 16 women beginning in the 1960s.

Cahn: Just call me Charlie Brown

A long, long time ago... oh, wait, that's another pop culture reference.

Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.

The start of something (really) big

As a part of writing this column, I go to lots of meetings, community events and conferences all across the state in my never ending search to find out about the people, businesses and community groups that are doing good and important things to make our state better.
