    Jaylyn Alan, I think that is his name.

    I belong to 3 CUs. I've never tried taking out a loan that a regular Bank had better rates than my CU.

    They have an athletic LB with some size. I met him on the football camp circuit at UK in June. A gregarious kid. Looks to be about 6'2" and 230 lbs, but is actually about 6' 0". His hair made him seem taller. His father is around 6' 2" legit so the son will probably grow some more. He will be a junior this fall, I believe.

    Are Credit Unions insured like banks are with FDIC or its equivalent?

    This is incredibly sensible! Cardinal Stadium. I have always hated it when stadiums are called by the name of a corporation. I much prefer when they are called by the team name.

    Fantastic! Fear the Nation. Excellent information. Thank you. Just to be clear for anyone who may too quickly glance through what Fear the Nation posted, those are the points earned for their team by gaining 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, etc. in an event. The numbers I posted in the OP are accurate for the actual number of reps for the 185 lb bench.

    Yet the analogy remains the same. Calling someone a name with the intent of abusing them with a racial slur is not the moral equivalent of pointing out that someone else did so and providing a specific example. Could he or should he have used another way to make the same point? Absolutely! The fact he used the word in a quotation of someone else shows he is extremely rude and insensitive. Actually using it as a racial slur is racist, which...

    Does anyone have information how this went today? What exactly do they do at these? I believe the participants were Ryle, Boone Co, Campbell Co, Bourbon Co. Information I have said that Ryle won the event due to points gained in the individual events. While Boone Co. won all the team/relay events except for the tug of war. 185 lb. Bench Press 1. Ryle's Jake Gideon with 26 reps.

    I will never say it either. But I do think there is a difference if someone uses it as an epithet or is reporting that someone else said it. There is a difference between someone saying, "Oldgrappler is a dinosaur" and someone saying, "I heard C_W_B and T b (and gold) call og a dinosaur." The first is a statement of the speaker's opinion. The second is a second-hand report of another person using the term. Huge difference between the...

    The reports on this sound as if he used the term in reference to someone or a group of people as an epithet. But when reading what he actually said, it seems like he is pointing out that someone else used the term, Colonel Sanders, and did not face negative consequences to his business. The problem is that he used the full term when reporting what Sanders actually said. However, he doesn't actually use the term himself in reference to anyone....

    We used to go down to Pendry Park for soccer and baseball games and planned to take the family there afterwards but never did because of the crowd.

    They barely beat a 1-10 Boone County team last year in the playoffs. The game went down to the final gun with Boone County moving the ball down the field with the possibility of tie-ing the score. It was 0-0 at half. 20-12 was the final.

    I haven't been able to get anybody to do that here. Did it all the time where I grew up. I've suggested it to a couple different companies and they decline.

    Michael Spencer comes from a good family. His Dad played at Alabama, I believe. He has size and I recall he had quite a competitive spirit for the BCPWFL Knights. He and Coach Chuck had a great rapport. I look forward to when they play Boone. I will miss seeing my son's former teammates and competitors from BCPWFL after next season.

    Cooper fans: Who in the senior class is coming back and what do you expect they will contribute? I believe Junior RB Witsche will get the bulk of the carries with Sophomore QB Lee contributing from the QB position. What else do you see offensively and what do you see defensively?

    Congratulations! Liberty U is a great school. Largest Christian university with 14,000 residential students. Tons of stuff to do there. They just built several new dorms, are currently adding on to the football stadium, a new Bible and theology building, and much more. They get some of the most interesting speakers for their convocation (sorta like chapel). They have a lot going on.

    WWII - My Dad was a farm boy who grew up during the Great Depression. He could have taken a deferment during the war but did not. Dec. 7 never went by without my Dad talking about how his family sat around the radio listening with disbelief to the accounts of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the "Day of Infamy" speech the next day. My Uncle recalls him being happy to go to report and get his assignment. My Uncle also said that is the only time...

    I don't know their numbers yet because June is hard to tell with guys involved in many things. Come July I will have a better idea. I don't look for there to be many more than last year so I would say 55-60, just guessing. I remember counting about 45 or 49 in a team picture from summer last year. It is hard to compete against teams who boast 90 guys on a team. But that is life at Boone in this period. There is talent in Boone County. ...

    I think Boone Co will be improved this year. I know, with a record of 1-10 the last two years I'm really going out on a limb here. :heh: The senior class has some good leadership. And the Sophomore class has some talent. The sophomores will need to step up and make strong contributions for the Rebels to win more than one game. I anticipate that will happen. Line play will need to be more consistent. It will be anchored by one of...
