Aggies: Toast of Choudrant

in
District 1-B champs have 31 wins, Top 10 state ranking
10-2.jpg

Talk about Choudrant High’s outstanding tradition in athletics and, more times than not, the Aggies’ super baseball program earns a quick and admiring mention.
And it won’t be long before Tony Antley’s Boys of the Spring get in gear and make their proverbial march to postseason play.
But right now, the buzz around Aggie Country is boys’ basketball and for a good reason.
They’re simply one of the best teams in the Class B ranks of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association.

’Dogs aren’t worried about polls

in
Tech focused on success, not preseason diamond rankings
10-1.jpg

Louisiana Tech University’s baseball team isn’t letting some preseason polls get in the way of their optimism for the 2012 season.

Waldon: Passing of a fellow angler

in
11-1.

Kay gave me an e-book last Christmas and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to download books, kick back in my recliner and read while she watches “The Bachelor”.
One of my favorite all-time humor writers was Lewis Grizzard and I just finished reading one of the last ones he wrote, “I Took A Lickin’ And Kept On Tickin’”.
In this book, Grizzard, born with a heart condition, wrote about his three open heart surgeries to replace a faulty mitral valve.

Locals serve as missionaries in Kenya

2 Pics.jpg

A leap of faith is almost an understatement for Ruston couple Leigh Ann and Taylor Kilpatrick’s decision to move to Kenya without enough funds to execute their mission there.
But, the Kilpatricks aren’t worried, because they believe God is on their side.
“We felt the Lord call us to missions, and we said OK,” Taylor said.

Fun experiences make life exciting in ‘Big D’

Irby, Marna.jpg

I’ve had a fun experience and another coming up this Thursday. I’ll save that for next week.
We had our Young at Heart Valentine’s luncheon and party at the church. I’ll hit the highlights.
We’re fortunate in that our pastor and wife, Dr. Scott Fenton and Judy, could make it as comedians if they decided to change professions. She’s the real star, of course.
