Eastside sinks Pirates

The Eastside boys and girls basketball teams have gotten off to slow starts this season. After both teams made waves last year, they were depleted by the departure of key senior players who moved on to college. The Eagles (3-6, 2-3 Region 4-AAAA) and the Lady Eagles (2-7, 2-3 Region 4-AAAA) both got wins over Pike County on Friday night to move them in the right direction at the quarter mark of the season.

A before-New-Years Netflix resolution

2015 is coming. With that will come a bunch of New Years resolutions – from people that will never fulfill them – like, "I'm going to lose weight" or "I'm gonna start going to church" and of course "I'm going to stay single" as if it takes a new year to start the process, but I digress. What you should really focus on is all of the really good movies that are leaving Netflix after December.

One Fabulous Mama - Clean rooms fuel cell phones

After a long, hard morning of minor meltdowns, I open the Teenager's bedroom door to toss in a gaggle of shoes that she's left in a pile at the front door. I wish I could tell you we are one of those families who own a home with such nice floors that shoes are left at the front door on purpose, but that's just not the case. Our flooring may be new, but it's laminate- the faux parquet flooring of the middle class. My children tend to leave their shoes at the front door because they ...
