Interesting reading on the AHSAA today. Whats with these educators thinking that no one can tell them what to do. It was the same reaction when tourism officials and the state legislators tried to get them to NOT back start school so early to help with tourist attractions that employee so many students (their only source of income) and cutting short the time attractions stayed busy (cutting short tourism dollars that help fund schools). The reaction from school superintendents then was "We don't want anyone to tell us what to do!!!" Now we are hearing if from AHSAA. How much power and control do they really need? They really don't wanna answer to anyone

I don't know if Rob Jones is in with Rob Carnegie or not, but he has a photo of a toddler, I presume his own, holding a glass of beer posted online. Not a good example for tourism board member.

Melanoma not medicine.
Like crime news? If you do, you're not alone. We're going to offer praise where due and say that the TimesDaily reports a great deal of this type news--just not all of it.
This weekend the Shoals Insider had a huge story about an upcoming rape trial. Pen-N-Sword had an article about a Marion County teacher accused of sodomy and attempted rape of a child under the age of 12. Neither of these stories has been covered by the TD. For the best coverage of local crime, you can't rely on one source:
