May he rest in peace, and his memory be blessed.
EVEN AS PASSENGERS – FRONT OR REAR – WEAR YOUR SEATBELTS!!!
AUBURN, Ala. — Former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen died in a wreck early Sunday morning outside of LaGrange, Ga.
He was 23.
Lutzenkirchen’s fatal accident occurred in Troup County, just southeast of LaGrange, at approximately 3:06 a.m. Sunday morning, according to Master Trooper B.N. Talley of the Georgia State Patrol, who responded to the scene.
“It happened at the intersection of Upper Big Springs Road and Lower Big Springs Road,” Talley said. “The vehicle was a 2006 Chevy Tahoe and the driver missed a stop sign at the intersection of those two roads, which is more or less a ‘T-intersection.’ They traveled through the intersection off into a churchyard. They were out of control for about 450 feet.”

At that point, Talley said, the vehicle overturned, ejecting three of the four passengers.
“Philip was one of them,” Talley said,” and he was killed at the scene.”
The driver of the vehicle, Joseph Davis, was also killed.
Lutzenkirchen, who was seated behind Davis, was not wearing his seat belt. Talley said they “are still looking into” how fast the vehicle was traveling when it ran through the stop sign.
Updates to come.

According to the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, the accident occurred at 3:06 a.m. in Troup County outside of LaGrange, Ga.
“The vehicle was a 2006 Chevy Tahoe and the driver missed a stop sign at the intersection of those two roads, which is more or less a ‘T-intersection,’” said Master Trooper B.N.

According to Talley, the vehicle then overturned and ejected three of the four passengers, including Lutzenkirchen, who was killed at the scene.
The 23-year-old from Marietta, Ga., was one of the most popular Auburn players in recent history. He ranks first in touchdowns by a tight end in school history with 14 from 2009 to 2012.
Lutzenkirchen saw his collegiate career end after suffering a major hip injury against Ole Miss in 2012. He signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis in April 2013, but was released four months later due to the lingering injury that eventually required surgery.After hanging up the cleats, Lutzenkirchen had been working at a wealth management company in Montgomery and volunteering with the football team at St. James School in Montgomery. St. James head coach Jimmy Perry confirmed the news of his death with AL.com.
Several of Lutzenkirchen’s coaches, teammates and fans have shared their condolences after hearing the news.

In an earlier entry, I had opined about why someone might want to work for Huntsville Hospital. As I had also noted, a related search term that led to this blog – “Why do you want to work at Huntsville Hospital” – was my source of inspiration for that particular entry.
In this entry, what I would like to do is to further define some standards and terms used to describe honesty, and then ask some critical questions about behavior those terms may describe.
Doubtless, there are numerous terms that can be used to describe one’s particular ability to tell truth. Among them are honesty, veracity, forthrightness (I really like that one), candor, accuracy, fidelity, constancy, certainty, factual, actuality, original, reality, verity, veracity, indisputable, uprightness, candid, and more.
And yet, for all the words that we use to describe truth, the question often remains whether we are truthful when we are not always forthcoming with ALL information.
For example, is it absolutely necessary to give every minute detail of every event in order to be truthful?
To answer that question, let’s consider the question “Which Major League Baseball team has won the most World Series?”
Perhaps the most straightforward answer would be Read the rest of this entry »

Formerly known as “Dooley’s Dogs” for late head coach Vince Dooley, the Georgia Bulldogs this year are certainly nothing less than a disgrace to the memory of their once-great team, and renown coach.
Certainly not the to-be-feared “junkyard dogs” that they perhaps once were, this year, the Georgia Bulldogs have a 5-5 record, and a 3-4 record in the South Eastern Conference, are going up against the UNDEFEATED Auburn Tigers, whose 10-0 record, and 6-0 in the SEC make them more than a formidable opponent. By most accounts, it will be a slaughter-fest by the Tigers, whose fans’ “WAR EAGLE!” cries will echo throughout the Plains… and in the ears of the Georgia fans and team as they return home, tail tucked between their legs.
Seeing that no Mississippi mud stuck to Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton, he is by all accounts …Continue…
