It is unfortunate that the recent freezing temperatures have damaged the tender vegetation, blooms and fruit of many plants, but in most cases these plants will respond with a flush of greenery and new blooms.

Another postseason team, another prestigious award (or awards) for Joanna Miller?

Eldonta Osborne, Fred Dean and the Boys and Girls Club of North Central Louisiana are grateful for several things regarding their annual “Hall of Fame Pro Day.”
First, there’s traditionally been a good turnout of participants, with hundreds of youngsters between the ages of 8-to-18 showing up to receive instructions in football and lessons in life.
And secondly, the weather has always cooperated.
For the ninth straight year, both of those positives helped highlight the camp that is hosed by Pro Football Hall of Famer Dean and Director Osborne of the Boys and Girls Club.
