  • IN MY PERFECT WORLD - Ode To Mollie

  • Royce offers numerous excuses for implosion

      Supertang has come and gone.

    While many are attempting to make sense of what happened and who is to blame for the train wreck it became- I want to point out who is not to blame.

    In recent weeks I was in communication with Hal Royce, the mastermind behind the event.

    Throughout our conversations he kept telling me the “community was not supporting Supertwang.”

  • Representative Dennis Powers Weekly Wrap May 9 –13

    Job-creating tort reforms pass the house by wide margin

    Legislation that caps non-economic damage awards at $750,000 and at $1 million in cases where victims suffer certain catastrophic injuries was given final approval by the House on Monday.

    Who could have ever imagined that someone could take a cold medication, break it down and add other chemicals that one would never put in their body and formulate a drug that could ruin their lives and those that come in contact with them?

    First of all, who has that much time?
