  • Ruritans are true community in small towns

    "We're waiting on taters!" Mark Schank hollered to the line 20-deep at the kitchen window.

    It was just before 6 at the Mount Eden Ruritan Club Fish Fry on Friday night. Hungry customers were filling the building and taking advantage of drive-thru service. On the menu: fried fish, potato wedges, cole slaw and baked beans.

    Pockets of the crowd whoop and holler for their favorites. But all is still when it's time for the judges to march around the horses and riders.

  • Memories of that first ride

    Brandi Floyd Raizor never has been afraid of a horse.

    A champion shower of Tennessee Walking Horses, Raizor can thank her grandfather, Walter Bruner, and the first horse he put her on, Gingerbread Man.

    That chestnut-colored horse was huge, 16-hands tall. Raizor wasn't even 5 years old.

  • Talker of the town

    His day starts at 5 a.m.: Wake up, get dressed and get to work.  

    It’s Monday, and Drew Deener is online checking anything he might have missed overnight or during the weekend, then he reads the morning paper, and he watches at least one full cycle of ESPNNEWS.
