  • Turnabout is fair play

    OK, Roger Sharpe never was on WSJS yesterday. It was never mentioned in the half hour I listened to the program, so I got the impression he had to leave early, not that he was never there. Sharpe’s excuse? Sharpe’s spokeswoman, Miranda Burgin, said that he was called…

  • Right thing, wrong time

    As they sat in this afternoon’s meeting trying to figure out how give minority contractors some business, little did school superintendent Terry Grier or present board members know the catastrophe they would face about an hour later. The meeting pales in comparison but nonetheless was very interesting. As…

    Cone and Hoggard discuss Mitchell Johnson’s statement. So Johnson said he relied on the RMA report, which many believe has questionable credibility?…
