I was never there before and I'm not sure what the focus is..I mean I see the topics, but what is the desired flavor? Here the flavor is friends treating each other with respect and kindness, and there is no political or religious bashing...it is very relaxing to me. I gave that as an example..what flavor are you aiming for with the other site, please? scratch

Good question. I'm not sure I have a complete answer, but I'll try. First, we're not going to publish arrest reports or endorse candidates. We will do articles about candidates. Trader is very open about not liking Obama, so you can expect some "bashing" form him. Just to warn anyone if that offends.

Both Trader and I are involved in animal rescue. We both write stories about animal abuse, sometimes with photos, so be aware that can be unsettling. I also do local history articles, but I don't think that would be too controversial.

JJ Ray writes for us and he's very critical of Cherokee. Dunno how much he will be writing for the new format, but again just to warn. That's one reason we hope to get articles and comments that express different views.

Trader is also something of an admitted agnostic who likes new age articles. I've had to ask him to take my name off some of them. Still we get along surprisingly well.

If you don't know us, here's a quick bio:

Trader is a retired police detective, having worked in Florence and Jefferson County. He is a Tuscumbia native and lives in Muscle Shoals. He owns two other businesses besides Pen-N-Sword. Trader is also a chef and does restaurant reviews. Here's a link to his old blog: http://tradevaluates.blogspot.com/2010/07/ichiban-sheffield-alabama.html

I'm a Florence native and registered nurse working in home health full time. Besides animal rescue, I do rape counseling. I've written two local histories and have some fiction published under pen names. Here's a link to my site: http://bettefavorterry.blogspot.com/

Synch, I hope that helps and feel free to ask anything.

While I appreciate the accolade, not worthy!!!! Giggle

I have very strong opinions on politics, which I hold back on here. I am also an advocate for all animals, but cats are my love. I have training in biology and chemistry, been a Basic EMT, and am currently working in the photo lab of one of our local retailers. (Why am i doing a bio? Razz )

Anyway, I like the site better, FV.
