Mr. Grizzell and Mr. McBrayer won a case of the Shuptrine's Twisted Product of their choice and Ms. Jacks received a three-pack of Shuptrine's Twisted Products. Cook-off guests were invited to taste the finalists' recipes, and the suggested SturmHaus beer pairing, to help select the winner.

Roy Exum: Quick! Arm Our Guards

When I learned last Wednesday that Chattanooga’s leading hospital, in a ridiculous attempt to be more “family friendly,” planned to disarm its security guards. I was aghast but decided to wait for the proper “incident” to illustrate how stupid members of our “free thought society” can sometimes be. It took exactly one week.
