Online divorce resource guide helps those searching for information

Fantasy gives way to reality and then the journey becomes a rough bumpy ride. It becomes such a rough bumpy ride that you decide to take another road.

The dream wedding turned into “How do I get divorced” and do it as painlessly as possible?

Tina Hapner can help you with that. She is the founder and CEO of Nottied.com. “What I really wanted to do is change the perception of how people feel about divorce.”

You take a negative and turn it around. You learn to move on through the rest of your life.

Tina says “When you tell someone, ‘Hey, I’m divorced,’ the ultimate response you get is, ‘I’m sorry.’ I really want to change that. It’s an opportunity when you get divorced to change your life and go down a different path.”

Tina knows about divorce. She has been there. She knows the challenge of the path people go down.

“I got divorced about three and a half years ago and found myself looking for positive information about the process. I didn’t find a whole lot out there on the web and I really wanted to go further.”

So Tina went to work. She got a big whiteboard and came up with the website’s name.

“I really liked not tied and really started whiteboarding the information people need when they go through a divorce.”

Fans say official Rocket City Trash Panda logos are a ‘home run’

MADISON, Ala – It’s a night many people across North Alabama have been waiting for, the official logo for the Rocket City Trash Pandas was finally revealed.

BallCorps, LLC hosted an event at Dublin Park in Madison to make the big announcement. After the big reveal the gymnasium was opened to give people their first chance to buy Trash Panda gear and the place was packed.

Many fans have already picked a favorite logo.

“The little raccoon coming out of the trash can,” Madison resident Tara Taylor said.

“It was the one with the raccoon sticking out of the trash can that was blasting off,” Madison resident Shawn Ryan said.

Which is good news! BallCorps managing partner Ralph Nelson says people will be seeing a lot of it.

“That’s our primary. That’s what you’ll see on our signs, and our business cards, and you’ll see that guy all over the ballpark in different places,” Nelson said.

People had their first chance to buy Trash Panda merch and they packed into the gymnasium. The lines wrapped all the way around the gym. But fans say it was worth the wait.

“Absolutely …I’m not really from around here. I’m fairly new coming into the area and we didn’t expect this kind of a turnout for this at all, especially for a minor league team,” Athens resident Gabriel Palacios said.

Hats, sweatshirts, T-shirts and kids clothes are all available for purchase. Many people joked about how this was a way for them to do their holiday shopping.

“We came out here to see the logo unveiling and to pick up Christmas presents,” Taylor said.

Many say the logos were a home run. And even though the first game won’t be until 2020, people can’t wait to show support for the Rocket City Trash Pandas.

A Rocket City Trash Panda merchandise store will open at bridge street town center November 12 for fans who would like to the team’s gear. The team will begin taking season ticket deposits at $250 per seat on Nov. 17. You can also buy merchandise on their website.
