FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK: ‘Bro Code’ must be addressed

Posted on January 27, 2015 at 1:53 pm

Following what is commonly referred to as the Vanderbilt rape case has left me with a deep feeling of disgust. I hope that coaches and parents of athletes as young as the middle school level are paying close attention and formulating plans to combat what is almost as disturbing as the actual alleged rape itself – “Bro Code.” Most all of us have heard the term thrown around – the

    Social media. It is a wonderful tool. But it can be a poison pill – especially as it relates to the consumption of news. I entered the news world during a time of transformation. When I first arrived on the scene to cover sports for the Manchester Times, Facebook was just coming online, everyone seemed to have a MySpace and a Tweet was nothing more than the morning music of

    Nothing can incite fear quite like the mere hint of change. Change for the better or change for the worse, people tend to fear change. Some fear is warranted. Some is manifested. Perhaps Warren Buffett put it best when he said, “In a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” We are approaching changing times in Manchester and the future

    As many of you have set your New Year’s resolutions and subsequently headed out to the gym, or wherever you may be going to work on self-improvement for 2015, I thought it worth mentioning that I will wait two weeks to start my resolution. I am testing a theory – it will be easier to keep my promise of a beach body if there are less people in my way

    Celebrating and ushering in a new year properly has been finely tuned into somewhat of an art. All across America, and the world I suppose, roads are closed, stages are snapped together like erector sets, concerts blare, parties rock the streets and homes all over the world so we can celebrate advancing another year in a life that many already agree is simply too short in the scheme of things.

    Just a couple of weeks ago Gracie won her first beauty pageant. Her mom was overcome with pride. I could see it spread across her face no matter how hard she tried to hide it. It was also a very defining moment for me. I was beyond happy for Gracie (who could honestly care less if she wins). But a truth that I was already well aware of began to

    It has been about 15 months since Holly and I were married and set sail on a week-long cruise to the Bahamas and Little Stirrup Cay for our honeymoon. Since that trip I have answered a litany of questions about the pros and cons of taking a large boat out into the middle of the ocean (honestly, there are no cons unless you get motion sickness).
