‘Moon’ landing: Acuff hits all the right notes on true tribute EP - Columbia Daily Tribune

columbiatribune.com — It can be hard to know just how to say goodbye. In crafting her latest musical statement, Ruth Acuff finds a fitting way without assuming it's the final word. Acuff infuses her usual - though it's hard to call such a quality "usual" - almost pixie-like lightness of being into a set of songs that could otherwise dwell in the land of lament.

Two-way street - Columbia Daily Tribune

columbiatribune.com — There is something better than the oft-heralded "two for the price of one" deals. More rewarding, but less obvious, is the "two working as one" special.

Utilities say coal stockpiles near 'dire' levels

columbiatribune.com — The regulatory tussle follows a year of railroad delivery issues that have hurt coal company earnings and kept utilities from replenishing stockpiles burned during the abnormal cold last winter. A record harvest, general economic growth and increases in oil shipments from the country's booming oil fracking industry in North Dakota and elsewhere have all strained the rail network.

U.S. is one nation under Godlessness

columbiatribune.com — With the malfunction of moral seatbelts and the erosion of moral guardrails, too many kids have turned to a pantheon of false gods, crutches and palliatives. They're obsessed with "Slender Man" and "Vampire Diaries," Alex from Target's hair and Rihanna's tattoos, overpriced basketball sneakers and underdressed reality stars, choking games and YouTube games, gossip and hookups, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
