Despite all the buzz surrounding new head coach Kelly Williams, it was another former Mercer County Community College attendee who propelled the men’s basketball team to victory Saturday.

Falling in line with Kelly’s aggressive new-look offense, speedy junior point guard Eric Blackmon-Hayes took full advantage of his debut as a Lions starter, converting a three-point play with seconds left to lift the Lions over the visiting Lehman College Lightning, 65-59. […]

When Mark Twain wrote, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog,” he probably didn’t have a pitbull the size of Brock Lesnar staring at him from across the way.

But that’s exactly who Randy “the Natural” Couture went up against on Saturday in the biggest challenge of his professional fighting career: a 6-foot-3-inch, 265-pound former national collegiate champion/ex-professional wrestler. […]

R.I.P. GOP?

I’d like to take a moment to offer my thoughts and prayers in remembrance of the Republican Party (1980-2008). Of course the party lives on, in name, but the events of Nov. 4 were the final nail in the coffin of the American conservative movement as we knew it. […]
