Louisiana Tech basketball game
Some of our third, fourth and fifth grade students were invited to attend a Louisiana Tech Men’s Basketball game on Jan. 12.
This was part of a PBIS reward for good behavior. The students had a blast. Our boys and girls basketball team were allowed to greet the Bulldogs as they ran through the tunnel.
We would like to thank Logan Lewis for organizing this event and also to Coach Derrick Jones for allowing us to participate in this event. Our girl’s team had the pleasure of taking pictures with the Lady Techsters.

Junkin forever linked to Giants-49ers

Ex-Tech player still asked about errant deep snap in ’03 playoffs
10-1.jpg

It’s nine years later and Trey Junkin still can’t escape the nightmare.
Later today, the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers will hook up in a battle for the NFC championship and a berth in Super Bowl XLVI.
Those were the same two teams who collided in 2003 for an NFC title.
There’s no need to nudge Junkin and say, ‘Hey, man, you played in that game didn’t you?’ ”
Yes, he did and as fate would have it, the former Louisiana Tech University star is arguably the one player whose name is quickly associated with the outcome.

This has been a deer season to remember, especially as it relates to the size and the number of trophy bucks taken around the state. Having had the privilege of writing and marketing stories about a number of these deer, I can attest to the quality of the bucks taken.
Unfortunately, I can also attest to the inferior quality of many of the photographs taken of these special animals at the end of the hunt.

Each year Mariam Stone is required to do at least one thing, that is to make her Amish Friendship Bread.

I told you last week about the young lady, Debbie O’Neal, in our church who had been fighting a losing battle with cancer for about two years. The pastor’s wife and I were to take dinner to the little family that night.
About 4 p.m. Debbie’s husband, Scott, called and said she was having a bad day and probably didn’t need visitors, so the preacher’s wife, Judy, offered to deliver the food. I didn’t go.
Well, about 2 a.m., Debbie died. They have two little boys ages 10 and 12.
