  • OFF the CUFF: Please please me: live and don’t die

    I acquired a fine roll of bubble wrap several years ago.

    I came into its possession for reasons I can’t recall. There was probably some project I had planned that was delayed until it evaporated from my memory.

    But you don’t give up high-quality possessions like bubble wrap merely because its original purpose has been forgotten. You never know when you might want to pack something, mail a fragile item, relieve stress or bring Dr. Seuss’ “Hop On Pop” to life.

    Dakota Henry, a 2016 Roane County High School senior, signed scholarship papers Friday to play baseball for Carson Newman University.

    Though he received interest from several colleges, Henry’s ultimate decision to attend Carson Newman was easy. “First off, it’s a good, Christian school that’s close to home, but far enough away,” Henry said. “And I loved the baseball program, academic curriculum, and atmosphere on campus when I visited.”
