Since selling his first short story in 2012, Madisonville-based author Matthew Alan Hughes has worked exclusively in the horror fiction genre, but his latest novel promises to take both he and readers in a totally new direction as he branches out into the world of non-fiction.

Henry “Enrique” Tarrio had already publicized his plans to participate in the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally. The 36-year-old Miami resident and national chairman of the Proud Boys posted on social media that he would direct small teams of his far-right group with a history of violence to wea…
Designing every detail of your dream wedding is exciting until you ask yourself the big question: Who is paying for this? Traditionally, the bride’s family covers most expenses. But this might not work for every family, and in the year 2020, it’s OK to switch it up a bit.
It’s a weekly thing – wondering where the next OCC story is going to come from. Having done over 800 stories over the last 18 years, it’s somewhat of a challenge to think of a new subject car each week. Lately I’ve been doing stories about cars I come across while running errands in the neighborhood or just casually driving around the area. But this week’s story was inspired from a different source.
By Broadry Newsroom The most googled question this week by would-be campers: what campgrounds are open? Simple but hard to answer. Campgrounds that can keep up with fluctuating COVID-19 health and safety guidelines are open for business. Seasonal campgrounds are in hibernation mode and won’t...
Call it what you will. Some people like the Ferrari-based front grill of the 1955 Chevrolet, others are fascinated by the “coffin-nosed” front ends of the 800 series Cords of the mid-‘30s. I don’t know why, but some cars’ taillights seem to draw my attention.
I, as I suppose many of you, was fascinated and deeply troubled by what I witnessed on my TV screen on Wednesday. I am equally fascinated by the various responses that followed yesterday and today.

Several years ago, I penned a story for this column titled, “The Final DeSoto.” Well, that wasn’t quite the case. While the familiar, full-size DeSoto “land yachts,” as we remember them, were last built for the 1961 model year, the DeSoto name was passed along to a compact car built by Chrysler from 1961 through the 1963 model years for the South African market.
Ah yes, much love and appreciation to Bentley Motors for blessing Automotive Rhythms with a Ghost White 2021 Bentayga luxury performance SUV for the cheers of New Year. The definitive luxury SUV was the perfect sled for spreading peace and happiness to friends and family during this festive time to show our appreciation for their comradeship, sisterhood, and brotherhood. The majestic, hand-crafted Bentayga served dutifully with exemplary performance that shaped my impulses from the rhythmic beauty of the 4-liter V8 to its manicured interior ripe for kingship.
The Chevrolet Suburban has been around a long time -- 86 years, to be exact -- and it didn't achieve that longevity by embracing change arbitrarily.
The date was October 2, 2011. The event was the “Cadillac LaSalle Club of St. Louis’ annual car show at Faust Park,” and it marked the first car show for 10-year-old TKCS-STL volunteer, Luis Hernandez. Lou and TKCS-STL mascot, Roy the wonder dog, were excited about being there.

Three weeks ago I did a story about a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air owned by Clifford Benz of Belleville, Illinois. Within that story, I referred to the “Tri-Five” Chevys: the 1955, ‘56 and ‘57 models, which are a trio of highly desirable (and to many collectors, highly coveted) model years for ‘50s Chevrolets. Today I bring you another story about one of those three fabulous Chevrolets, a 1957 Bel Air four-door sedan.
We celebrate the birth of Christ near to the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The light of the world shining in the darkness. This year, for many, the celebration will be either changed, muted, or nearly non-existent.

With America facing a bitterly divisive election, Episcopal Church leaders did what they do in tense times — they held a National Cathedral service rallying the Washington, D.C., establishment.
Bad theology is everywhere. Sometimes it is blatantly obvious as when faith gets tangled up in nationalism and war and terrorism. Sometimes it is still obvious, but some people can justify it, as when faith is coopted by party political agendas. Bad theology in these categories usually leads…

Are the holidays not hectic enough for you? Put aside your gift list for a moment; how about adding a home sale to your to-do list?
Most people avoid selling their homes during the holidays, but you may not have any choice in the matter. If you need to sell your home around the end of the year, here are seven tips to help your sale go smoothly.
- Minimize Holiday Decorations – Not everyone has the same love of holiday decorations, and poorly maintained, tacky, or overly religious displays can be a turnoff for potential buyers. Keep the seasonal decorations simple and easy to maintain.
That applies to the outside as well as the inside of your home – avoid browning out the neighborhood with your awesome light display.
- Keep It Clean – Keeping the home free of tracked-in mud, snow, and other debris is even tougher in the winter months, and arguably even more important. Vacuum well and vacuum often.
