As I’m progressing and settling into my new job here at The Democrat, I’ve found myself quickly submersed into all of the political goings-on of the area. Now, I was a journalism as well as a political science major, so you’d think I had already learned all there is to kn...

I heard a few days ago that almost 300 soldiers returned to Ft. Campbell from a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan. It made the news, but it wasn’t a huge story, per se. I realized a lot of us have become so used to the frequent comings and goings of our troops, that we may ...

So, those of you who have read my column before know that I like the outdoors. Well, Wednesday morning on my way to the office, I came across something I didn't expect to see. As I was driving to the interstate from our house, which is out in the country a ways, even if our house itself is...

I wonder if it’s too late for me to become a Girl Scout. I’ve realized that my education to date is sorely lacking in one key aspect – What do I do if I were suddenly stripped of all my lovely technology? I’m reading a novel right now, CyberStorm, by...
