Gone Before Morning Light

Up at the crack of dawn for JTG visits to Anderson County Career and Technical Center in Clinton, then up to Oneida High School in Scott County.  Fun roads once I'm off I-40.  I'm an early morning driver, putting chunks of miles behind me before most have had their first cup of coffee.  Are you [...]

At a (CMT) Crossroads

Bridgestone Arena Auxiliary HallFriday, February 24, 2017 I hope you all had a good weekend.  Lynley and I began ours Friday night with a chance to attend the CMT Crossroads taping of Darius Rucker and John Mellencamp.  A friend of ours at the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce passed along an email that [...]

Daytona, Grad Rates, Parking Ripoff and other Random Thoughts

If you're not going to win the Daytona 500, the next best thing might be a crash that lands you on the front page of the morning paper.  54-years today, the # 81 Romy Hammes-Brannan Ford Galaxy 500 placed 37th in a 50-car field.  Driver Dick Goode, from Mishawaka, lost control on the 69th lap.  [...]

A Lesson in True Friendship

There are days that JTG has me up early on the road visiting JTG programs around the state and this morning is one of those times.  I'm heading to Pulaski to visit Giles County High School.  When days like this crop up I feel comfortable revisiting blog entries in my Dwyerwire blog from my News-2 [...]

DC Trip Leaves an Impression

Happy Monday!  Presidents' Day is kind of a weird holiday and that's just the debate over how to spell it!  Presidents, President's or Presidents'?  (I'm going with the plural possessive since it's general thought of a day to honor the 45 people who have served/are serving as Commander in Chief).  Can anyone connect dots between [...]

Trump, Pneumonia, The Hill, and Other Random Thoughts

Random thoughts on a Friday morning while Lola is waiting for her morning walk... (I did this on the Dwyerwire blog back in the day and thought it was a good way to wrap up the week). Driving back from Clarksburg yesterday, I was flipping radio channels and landed on President Trump's news conference.  When [...]

We’re Not in Linden Anymore

Remember your first time to Washington DC? You never looked at the back of a penny the same way again (remember a penny?). Lincoln Memorial November 11, 2016. Never gone?  It's a trip you will never forget. Thankfully because of JTG, several Perry County High School seniors won't either.  Jobs for America's Graduates [...]

From Shadow Day to Co-Workers

Encouraged or discouraged. Job shadowing for a high school senior will go either of those two ways.  Rarely in between.  Through my nearly three decades as a TV broadcaster, I've had job shadows from local high schools and always enjoyed meeting the wide-eyed teenagers as they walk through a TV station for the first time.  [...]
