Commentary editor of The Anniston Star. Memphis native. University of Memphis and Jacksonville State University grad. Cardinals fan. And, yes, that's me in the wildcat mascot costume. Anything for a story. I'm a journalist, a writer, a storyteller and an editor. I write about politics, history, culture and life. Everyone has a story. Sometimes, you have to climb into a wool costume in 90-degree Alabama heat to find it.

Phillip Tutor: Cornelia came here, and she died here

From all across Maryland, people gathered on a cold and clear Sunday afternoon in Old St. Paul’s Church — the “Mother Church of Baltimore” — for memorial services honoring women who had died in service during the Great War. The calendar read Feb. 2, 1919, three months after that war’s end. The Rev. Arthur B. Kinsolving delivered the sermon. Anniston was there, in remembrance, a significant chapter in Cornelia Price’s life.
