Clarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement. Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember. Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent.
Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – I spent my career in the spotlight. Forty years in broadcasting. The last eighteen years as the owner of a radio station, and the host of a morning talk show. I was right in the middle of everything.
Over the course of my career, I “hob-knobbed” with the rich and famous. Rock stars, politicians, entertainers and more. There was nobody I couldn’t hang out with. There wasn’t a politician or public official I couldn’t interview.

Orange Beach, AL – The week I had planned to travel to Texas to see some friends, turned into a chance to cover a world class event. Weather prevented me from heading west, so I went south, to an area I frequent on vacation every year, Orange Beach Alabama. It was here that the World Food Championships were being held, and I had to check it out.
In my previous posts, I shared the structure of the event and how the best chefs in the world descend on this event to see just who is the best.
Orange Beach, AL – When I arrived at the World Food Championships, I had no idea what this was all about. I had to “bone up” on the sport of competitive cooking so I could cover it properly.
I’ve covered everything from baseball to golf, football to basketball, but I’ve never been up close and personal with this type of event, and let me just say..
It. Is. Awesome!
Orange Beach, AL – The World Food Championships have begun in Orange Beach Alabama, a popular vacation destination for Middle Tennesseans. The Championships will highlight some of the most iconic cuisines from around the globe.
The location of this year’s event, the fifth in a row with two more years to come, is happening at The Wharf on Canal Road, a popular restaurant and retail development with condominiums and entertainment venues.
Tupelo, MS – The Natchez Trace, also known as “Old Natchez Trace,” is a 440 historic forest trail that links the Cumberland River, Tennessee River and Mississippi River. The trail was used by Native Americans and later, by European and American Explorers.
Today, the Natchez Trace Parkway and bridge, commemorates the path used by early explorers.
It’s a recreational favorite among bikers, bicyclists, hikers, campers, boaters and just about anyone who enjoys the great outdoors, surrounded by incredible history.
Eminence, MO – Today was my last full day of riding through this part of the country. It’s been quite an experience, and I’ve learned so much about the people and the region.
I started the day as usual with a hot cup of coffee, and some morning chatter with the locals. The buzz this morning was about this weekend’s big trail ride, bringing loads of horses and their riders. The rooms are all booked, the cabins are taken, and Eminence, Missouri will be covered with visitors.
They’ll have a big time.
Eminence, MO – After a great night’s sleep along the Jack’s Fork River, I rolled out of bed to a beautiful sunrise and a calm breeze coming off the water.
I needed coffee, so it was off the Margie’s Restaurant in the middle of town. I was greeted by a handful of locals who were all abuzz about, what else, politics.
It was a Trump crowd.
I had the morning special which was two eggs over easy, sausage and biscuits and glorious cups of coffee. After chatting it up with the waitress about where some good roads would be to ride, I was off to saddle up.
