  • When Gene Johnson gives the graduation commencement speech to East Gadsden’s Class of 2015 this May, he hopes to impart to them the mindset that helped him rise from being a service attendant on a train to being a defense attorney with the department of justice in Washington, D.C.

  • I rarely make New Year’s resolutions, and I’m not sure if this counts as one, but around the end of December I noticed that whenever I was in church my eyes would be drawn to the big steel crossbeam in my favorite window.
