Posted by mcm0704 on May 29, 2011 |

When he first started writing a column for me at WinnsboroToday.com, his blog was related to a fictional town, Stinky Creek, Texas. Then he started another blog at TracyFarr.net. His latest is School Bus Cowboy and it has […]

While I am out of town, I am going to let my two writing friends, Slim Randles and Tracy Farr entertain you with their humor. They were regular columnists for WinnsboroToday.com, when we were still publishing that online magazine, and I so enjoyed their wit and wisdom. They were both kind enough to tell me […]

People start running early because we start paying attention early.” He goes on to highlight what he terms “compelling story lines” about the different contenders and their current standings, as well as their chances of capturing the nomination.

 If you have not been a follower of Kristen Lamb’s Blog, I highly suggest you check it out when you get a chance. She recently did a couple of posts dealing with conflict, and the one that really resonated with me was “Little Darlings and why they Must Die”  In that post she makes the […]
