  • String of Consciousness: Is Chip...

    Not that I’m complaining, but when did the actual NFL become just like my online Madden franchise?

    On Tuesday at 4 p.m., the free agency period officially opened for NFL teams to make trades and signings, and, by 5 p.m., it was shaping up as one of the strangest offseasons of my generation.

    Before recapping the craziness, let’s backup to weekend.

    The NFL put in place a three-day, no-tampering window in which teams could essentially do exactly that, tamper.

  • Midway beats Rockwood in season-...

    It was a cool, cloudy and very damp start to the 2015 baseball season for the Rockwood Tigers and the Midway Green Waves Monday at Midway.

    Despite not having many outside practice days for either team, the Green Waves managed to pound out a 6-2 win over the Tigers.

    The last time Rockwood was outside was on February 13, Rockwood assistant coach Tim Treadway said.

    Rockwood was also breaking in a completely new starting lineup.

    The Oliver Springs boys soccer team kicked off its season Monday at DJ Brittain Field against Maryville Christian School.

    In a game that proved to be a defense battle, MCS defeated Oliver Springs, 1-0

    Oliver Springs defenseman Christian Smith stepped up for the Bobcats, helping keep the score at 0 in early going.

  • Oliver Springs eliminated by...

    During the Lady Bobcats four-year run to the state tournament between 2005-2009, Clarkrange proved to be a thorn in the side of head coach Michelle Christopher.
