  • One Day at a Time

    Evelyn 'E.T.' Trevathan, Contributing Writer|Sep 1, 2022

    Well it is another beautiful morning here in our little valley. It is cool and very comfortable here on the front porch. The cats have had their breakfast and are now taking a nap. All the birds are busy and I have seen a few squirrels. There is a tree here in the yard that has a hole up in it and the squirrels are going up and down that old tree, they may be storing up their food for the winter. We were down at the creek and I saw a lot of nuts on the ground, so there is going to be plenty of food for the animals. We are just three months...

  • Tyrades! Princess Di: has it really been 25 years?

    Danny Tyree|Sep 1, 2022

    Believe it or not, August 31 is the 25th anniversary of the traffic accident that robbed the world of the effervescent Diana, Princess of Wales. Diana was a distant, distant cousin (my great-great grandfather Tyree married Mary Ann Spencer a century before I was born); but even without that connection, I feel compelled to dedicate this week’s column to drawing a few lessons from her too-brief life. The philosophy “Seemed like a good idea at the time” sums up so much of her public career. In re...

  • Tribute to Tennessee High School Football Coaches

    Murphy Fair|Sep 1, 2022

    I interviewed for the David Crockett head football job in February of 2018 as a 24 year old assistant college coach. A couple of months later, I officially accepted the job as the youngest head coach in the state. Fast forward throughout to my first season there. We had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of close games and overtime games. It was a historic season for us at Crockett. Crockett had never really had a lot of post season success. The school had never hosted a playoff game, never won a pla...
