  • COLUMN: Doing things the right...

    I’m not much of an NBA fan. In fact, the last quarter of the NBA Finals Sunday night represented the longest stretch I’d watched all season. I tuned in not so much because I was a fan, but because I love a good story.
    San Antonio is a good story. This team of mostly veteran players who have been loyal to their team, their city and each other for several years just claimed their fifth NBA title in the last 15 years. In doing so, they removed the Miami Heat from the lofty perch that LeBron James and Company purchased with big bucks.

  • Who would be on your sit and...

    Getting old, how much dearer the afternoons. How mellow and pleasing, the quiet. We see more, listen better and hold the tongue more easily than before. Minutes have new value and hours can be sweet as strawberry ripple in June. And melt at much the same speed.
    At dusk fire flies kindle fond memories on the front porch and a breeze simply has to be a kiss from angels. When the sun climbs down to a tree line, if you’re like me, a grateful sigh comes along followed by a barely audible whisper, “thank you ... for this day.”

  • COLUMN: Bad sportsmanship ruins...

    You’ve seen it on the college basketball court, the little league baseball field and now we’ve seen it at the race track and it’s never pretty. Bad sportsmanship has a way of ruining great moments and revealing not-so-great character.

  • COLUMN: Mitchell's...

    The American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP) changed its name the other day to CharityWatch.
    I like the original better, don’t you? Never mind, the bottom line part is who’s who one the list, right? American philanthropists give away money of their own for the betterment of worthy causes beyond themselves.
    On the list: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Henry Bloch, 50 Cent and Matthew Mitchell.
    Mitchell on the list? Just kidding, but it’s true a University of Kentucky ball coach has gone philanthropic. With fanfare of course.
