  • Hard to Say Thank You for Saving This Child

    I owe our governor a positive column on CBD oil. Here it is: “Pat McCrory signed a bill last week that allows certain seriously ill children in North Carolina to be given CBD oil. Many families are relieved. The end.” That’s all the positivity I can muster. Read More
  • At the Beach, a Different Look at Trump

    The last news swirling before leaving for the beach was, “Donald Trump Leads in North Carolina.” The poll had him at 16 percent, followed by two of the other candidates at 12, then the rest. Trump, the “tallest of the midgets,” as some would say, disparaging midgets more than the rest of the Republican field. The candidates are generally all midgets Read More

  • 2015 Training Camp Preview

    Carolina Panthers Training Camp is off and rolling for a 21st season in Spartanburg.  Camp opens Friday, July 31 with the Kickoff Party and the team will practice from 6:30-8:30 pm at Gibbs Stadium at Wofford College.  One week into the Panthers' stay at Wofford, the team will return to Charlotte for Fan Fest at Bank of America Stadium on Friday, August 7. 

    Following the first preseason game against the Buffalo Bills on August 14, the Panthers will wrap up training camp with joint practices with the Miami Dolphins on August 19 and 20. The two teams will play each other at Bank of America Stadium in Week 2 of the preseason on August 22.

    Sharon Thorsland and myself will be making the trek back and forth down I-85 to bring you the latest interviews and information on WBT and wbt.com.  For the preseason games, Mick Mixon will again be broadcasting on the TV side with Mike Rucker and Jordan Gross.  On WBT, I will handle the play-by-play with Eugene Robinson.  Sharon will do sideline reports for the two home games, with Greg Brannon and Mike Craft on the road games. 

    Top two rookie draft picks Shaq Thompson and Devin Funchess should get plenty of media attention.  Another spotlight will be on new starting LT Michael Oher, who replaces Byron Bell.  Defensively, the Panthers will be looking for somebody to step up and take the reigns at DE opposite Charles Johnson.

    Here is the complete list of training camp practices in Spartanburg, subject to change based on weather, coach decision, etc.  All practices at Wofford are free and open to the public.  If you are looking for a place to eat, I highly recommend Wade's and Ike's which are both locally owned and within minutes of the practice fields.
