Eclectic and Passionate
If ever there has been an eclectic and passionate purveyor of life…it is me. I have a number of things that I could devote my entire life to and be absolutely complete…except for the fact that there are other things in my life that I am equally passionate about.These range from sports to coffee…from my family to studying history…from traveling to my faith in a great God.
Intelligent, Entertaining and Worthwhile
Additionally, I have absolutely zero patience for incompetence, ignorance, immaturity or laziness. Therefore, I am not so easily bought off and entertained by mind-numbing, zombie fodder, such as the programming we find in today’s main stream media. In fact, the historian in me simply does not open my brain up for the media to pour “trash” into my brain unchallenged.You and I deserve better, so since there is little content out there that is intelligent, entertaining and worthwhile…we shall create it ourselves.
Therefore, I demand that content bearing my name or the name of my company will have to be intelligent, entertaining and worthwhile. We will NOT pick the “low hanging fruit” simply to tickle someone’s ears or play to their emotions. We will not simply appeal to the lowest common denominator.
I will post content in the following areas (plus more I’m sure):
- The “New Lion of Liberty Podcast”;
- My weekly columns written at the Blytheville Courier News (unless they make me stop);
- “An honest look back” at history (particularly American history);
- National and state political and news highlights;
- Political and news commentary; and
- much, much more!!!
I have been fortunate to have held a number of very interesting and diverse jobs over the years. Those jobs have ranged from being a newspaper reporter (twice), restaurant and retail single unit store manager (numerous), restaurant multi-unit manager, a Christian bookstore manager, an online hospitality management recruiter, pastor, video store manager and I even worked for a funeral home for a time. I am now a news editor for the Blytheville Courier News, a regional newspaper in northeast Arkansas.
I have three college degrees (from Arkansas State University and Arkansas Northeastern College) including a Master of Arts in history.
I spend all of my non-work time with the sweetest woman I’ve ever met. Her name is Lillie Caroline. Together we have four children (ranging in age from 19 to 25). She is without a doubt the answer to my many years of fervent prayer. I have never been happier than I am now.
In my free time, I enjoy writing, reading, traveling (especially to historic/civil war sites), learning, intellectual discussion and singing. Carol and I live an hour north of Memphis and we love to go “walking in Memphis, ten feet off of Beale” as often as we can.
