Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Things I Didn't Know About East Tennessee:

East Tennessee readers might remember that Dollywood used to be called Silver Dollar City. Before that, it was known as Goldrush Junction. Apparently, the owner of Goldrush Junction was none other than Art Modell, of Modell's Sporting Goods fame, and owner of the Cleveland Browns - not the new ones, but the ones who left Cleveland for greener pastures in Baltimore. Modell also was known to use many of his players as summer employees at Goldrush Junction. And to think I learned this little bit of trivia from a Dallas newspaper, and not one in East Tennessee.
