Fireworks Safety this 4th of July

June 28, 2016

The 4th of July is fast approaching.  That means family time, swimming, hot dog, hamburgers and of course fireworks.  Fireworks are as much a part of the 4th as anything.  They are a beautiful thing to behold but can be very dangerous.  They are not tools.  They can hurt you. The National Council on Fireworks […]

What is old, is new…An Alternative to Self Defense Firearms

June 21, 2016

Recently I wrote an article for the Quad Cities Daily talking about that you might have to choose a different type of firearm to protect yourself either because of injuries or limitations or financial obligations.  After writing that article, I remembered the following article.  I wrote this back in 2006 and it was published.  I […]

Police Reserves

June 13, 2016

So, you want to be the Police?  First, let me stop right there and explain something.  When the Term “Police” is used in this article, it can mean Police Officer, Sheriff’s Deputy, Campus Police Officer, Federal Law Enforcement Officer, etc.  All of these professions take a special person.  Someone that can be a good Police […]

You May Have To Have a Different Defense Handgun

May 31, 2016

I wrote an article a few months ago for the Quad Cities Daily about choosing the right handgun for you.  I mentioned several factors on choosing this handgun such as feel, weight, operation and other aspects.  However, something that I missed has come to my attention and I thought that I would clarify these two […]

    “35”. “   “Thirty Five.”  “XXXV.”     To some, this is just a number.  But to the Law Enforcement Community, that is the number of Law Enforcement Officers killed in the Line of Duty as of this morning.  35 loving Fathers and Mothers, Men and Women or Sons and Daughters have given their lives to […]

Riverfront Vandalism: A Shame

May 17, 2016

Approximately 2 weeks ago, I wrote an article for the Quad Cities Daily about the beauty of Riverfront Park, located in Sheffield, Alabama.  I spoke about the fresh paint, the tranquil setting, kids playing and just a truly relaxing place.  Everything was just “right” about the place. This past Friday, I was “laid out” with […]

Sheffield’s Riverfront Park and Your Health

May 10, 2016

  In October, 2015, I had a Stroke.  I was lucky in that it was a Mini-Stroke and I didn’t really suffer any long-term problems.  However, my Doctor advised me that I should start exercising.  What?  Me exercise?  I am 46 years old, and in good, well pretty good health.  Never happen.  At each of […]

Pro Wrestling: A Forgone Passion

April 21, 2016

Professional Wrestling… I have never seen an event where there is a wide arrangement of lifestyles. From the little old ladies sitting at Ringside to construction workers. From Blue Collar Workers to people sitting in VIP boxes watching it. Young or Old. Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, it doesn’t matter. Now, I am not talking about […]

A Dog…Man’s (and Women’s) Best Friend

April 14, 2016

We have always heard the saying that “Dogs are man’s best friend.”  Growing up I had a dog, but he stayed outside.  I played with him, loved him and he grew up with me.  I remember that he got so old, that the day my friend Chad and I took him to be put to […]
