More than seven hours from home on a Monday night in early May, I’m in Port Orange covering a regional championship flag football game.

Navarre is on the brink of school history and makes it happen in a thrilling 19-13 come-from-behind win over Spruce Creek to punch a ticket to state for the first time.

How would Jesus have fared on social media? Not well, speculates one pastor

For God’s Sake: Being like a Berean perhaps more important today than ever

I have a pet peeve. I get rankled when I see in print “apostrophe-s” to indicate possession in nouns ending in “s.”

Having attended several BOCC meetings and following the news media, I have come to the conclusion the BOCC acts consistently in support of developers.

Letter to editor: Are you stupid?

I do not think so, but your federal government believes you are stupid because they think you cannot tell when they are lying to you. Most issues expressed by the government are lies.
