Mawae: From average to great career

in
10-2.jpg

The seeds of self-confidence Kevin Mawae says he needed to become one of the top NFL centers of modern times were planted by Kenny Ferro.
Ferro, a 65-year-old New Orleans native who now is a special education teacher in Kilgore, Texas, coached for more than 30 years in high schools in Louisiana and Texas and at the college level at Nicholls State, LSU and Tulane. He was Mawae’s offensive line coach in his first two years at LSU.

Jockey legend Ardoin had success close to home

in

Ronald Ardoin is the seventh thoroughbred jockey to be honored with induction into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. His path, however, is different than the other modern-era jockeys who have reached the pinnacle in their home state.
While Eddie Delahoussaye had his biggest successes in California, Mark Guidry in Illinois and Craig Perret and Randy Romero in Kentucky and beyond, Ardoin kept his tack either within his home state or just a short drive away.
“I don’t think there’s another rider from Louisiana who’s won as many races in the state as I have,” Ardoin said.

School’s ‘in’ with bass fishing

Although the sun had not yet appeared over the horizon, the air was already warm and sticky, typical of the onset of another hot July day in Louisiana. This would have been a good day to work on articles in my air conditioned office but fishing guide and friend Eddie Halbrook’s call the night before had a sense of urgency about it.
“I don’t care what you have planned for tomorrow,” Halbrook said, “put it off. The bass are schooling on Grand Bayou and you need to come with me.”

11-1.jpg

The seventh season of the North Central Louisiana division of the Fishers of Men recently came to a close with the final tournament of the series held on Caney Lake in Chatham.
Blasting off from Brown’s Landing at daylight, the field of anglers began what proved to be a challenging nine-hour jaunt under overcast skies and temperatures in the mid-70s. For Kenny and Courtney Harris, who came into the tournament holding the season points lead, the entire season hung in the balance as they would have to finish in the top half of the field of 31 teams competing in the event to retain their lead.

Losing purse leads to walk down memory lane

Irby, Marna.jpg

I’m both happy and sad today. Happy because so many interesting things are happening in my life and sad because I’ve lost my purse with my “life’ in it.
I’ve always been absent minded, but it gets worse as I get older. And, if I don’t find my purse, I’ll have to have a new picture taken for my ID card.
Don’t laugh, the card I had was seven years old and I looked fairly decent, now I’ll have this really old lady picture staring at me every time I have to show it.

Add seafood to the summer grilling menu

B1.jpg

Fish can be harder to grill than foods more commonly associated with grilling. Oftentimes, it takes time to find fish that can withstand a charcoal grill.
Sea bream is one such fish that can handle a charcoal grill while making for a delicious meal. Firm enough to endure grilling, sea bream can be enjoyed in many ways, including the following recipe for "Grilled Bream with Wild Mushrooms" from Tony Mantuano's "The Spiaggia Cookbook" (Chronicle Books).

The joy of carrying a burden

in

When I was a young boy, attending church was a weekly practice in our household. My parents instilled within me the pattern of church attendance. It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that some of my earliest memories as a child involve church activities, such as my very first foray into choral music — the “Sunbeams” 3 year old children’s choir.
