DAVIS: In Bryant, dysfunction goes from exception to rule

June 30, 2014

I want to make it clear from the outset that I do not find any particular joy in what you are about to read. The words that follow are not political, are not biased, nor are they meant to support or denigrate anyone.

I am simply putting forth an opinion.

Nothing more. Nothing less. An opinion that I believe is shared by a growing number of people.

PYKE: Reporters don't love tragedy

June 19, 2014

Bobbye Pyke

Tragedy makes up a large portion of the news.

The front page of most newspapers is plastered with stories about death, war, destruction and general mayhem.

These stories sell papers. They catch the eye. They draw you in. These stories keep us in business.

In general, these are stories that capture the attention of readers and provide content that interests them.

But these stories are also hard to write.

DAVIS: The gift of a father shapes the future

June 16, 2014

Seven years ago, a life changing event took place. One that set the course for a future that I did not see coming.

I lost my job.

I was 49.

My father was very sick at the time. Two years prior, he had been through several operations, radiation treatments and chemotherapy to stop a melanoma on his scalp from spreading. With me unemployed, he was headed toward six-weeks of chemotherapy five days a week. The cancer had spread from his scalp, through his skull and had reached the outer layers of his brain.

But watching him, a person would never know what he had been through.
