Carter, Bill.jpg

As a rite of passage for growing older, I have deemed anything concerning change as totally unnecessary in my life.
I never have been a fan of change. Change is dirty and germ ridden. It’s like ground clutter on my dresser or in the console of my truck.
Can you imagine how many pockets this 1981 nickel has been in? Here’s a 1996 dime that has been handled so many times, the edges are worn off.
If we could convince Americans to round up or round down, we would not need change. There are very few items that consumers can purchase for 50 cents or less anymore.

Appleby: Young star in making

In 2010, no one would’ve guessed that the firing of the Bulldogs’ basketball head coach would lead to such a quick rise in the program.
The addition of head coach Michael White was a great start, but it was his recruitment of young guard Raheem Appleby that turned the program around.
Young Appleby started to become noticed during his illustrious career at Jacksonville High School in Arkansas, where he averaged 26 points and was named All-State twice.
White said he couldn’t pass up Appleby’s undeniable ability to score, as he could see Appleby holding a prominent position on the team.
