Hannah Kirby, former contestant on NBC's "The Voice,"  is still riding high on the motivation and fan boost she received from her television experience. Her debut Fire In My Soul album continues to garner the talented Sulphur Springs resident some much deserved attention.

It’s not certain when St. Patrick's Day morphed from a just another saint's day into an excuse for some to get drunk to the point of near-incontinence on emerald-colored concoctions. But, sadly, that's what the holiday seems to have become in the United States.

Tonight, green Mardi Gras beads, which are as Irish as Vladimir Putin, will fly in bars from Seattle to St. Augustine. Boozy brogues will be attempted, unsuccessfully. Back in the old country, such antics would be dismissed as "a load of bollocks."
