My View, Bill Morrison: Was there too much Olympics on TV?

Well, coffee time was a mixture of views and comments. The Olympics took precedence and all agreed that our achievements were praiseworthy – but did we need so many TV channels overrun with Olympic coverage?

Column: Inspirational stories behind athletic achievement

I love the Olympics - to me, it is the greatest show on earth. Forget the Premiership, European Championships, and Rugby League’s Four Nations. You can keep them. 
Unlike some other walks of life, athletes are just like you and me.

Column: There is more good than bad happedning across Sheffield

We have a tendency to notice the bad instead of the good. I check the news every day and I think it’s fair to say there is plenty of bad being reported, whether locally, nationally or internationally. Sheffield is no exception and it’s easy to despair and get fed up but, at the same time, there are always some heartwarming good news stories too and we don’t pay as much attention to these as we should.
