"My Bid" by Joe Biddle

UT is going bowling

Tennessee's football team will have to buy some bowling shoes after defeating Vanderbilt 31-24 in both team's final regular season game at Vanderbilt Stadium.

The Vols enter the undecided bowl game with a 6-6 record, one win better than last year's 5-7 mark.

It is the youngest team in college football's Power Five conferences. They started seven freshmen against the Commodores.

Seven days of sun, or eat your heart out

The boiling sun had just begun to melt the blue-green water of the Gulf into a copper spill. A gull wheeled and screed at Jason. He cast the sand flea far out into the surf and began to wait.

I peeled off my shirt and sat back to watch. I don't have to fish every time I go fishing. I was still full of shrimp and stuff and a solid eight hours sleep still had me slightly groggy. I sipped my iced orange juice and watched Jason fish.

Telling Tales

Not a Martha . . .

There's few places as beautiful as Middle Tennessee in the fall. And one only needs to visit Facebook or Twitter to take in all the beauty. Changing leaves, crisp air, family photos in all orange or red surrounded by a bevy of changing leaves posted all over social media, and general giddiness of the season make even this girl excited about football...for the social atmosphere, not the game.

Does it seem possible that Christmas is only a week and a day away? I hope you have finished your shopping by now and all you have left to do is wrap presents.

Pay scale concerns raised for SLPs in WC Schools

I am writing in regard to the recent e-mail that I received from Mary Ann Sparks, director of Human Resources for Wilson County Schools, regarding the new pay scale that will be implemented for the 2014-2015 school year. I want to take a minute to advocate for our profession and the reasons why I feel like a base salary of $45,500 for a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) with no pay bumps, increases, etc., is unfair and not an appropriate pay rate for our profession.
