Practice water safety this year

It’s pool time, or lake or river time, depending on your particular fondness of a specific body of water. However, while taking a dip to get a moment’s relief from the hot Louisiana sun is essential at times, it can turn disastrous if safety precautions are ignored.
According to the American Red Cross, home pool drowning is the leading cause of death for children younger than 5. Although children should never be left unattended in a swimming pool or hot tub, there are also other precautions the Red Cross recommends:
• Keep water clear and pool free of debris.

Peach festival kicks off summer

Aswell, Taylor.jpg

For years, I would sit idly by in the summer time claiming there was nothing to do, bothering my parents and questioning the importance of this three-month hiatus from school.
Now — with the majority of my family working in the education field — my summers are full of constant texts and reminders that I no longer have those glorious three months of summer available to complain about having nothing to do.

GRAMBLING — As sure as the late spring North Louisiana weather reaches the oil-thick humidity level, Wilbert Ellis will be punching a ticket to an NCAA baseball regional.
For 22 consecutive years now, the former head coach at Grambling State University has been selected to direct such an event or serve as a committee member.
Sure enough, Ellis is back on the road this week and this time within his own native state.
He will serve as the NCAA regional coordinator for the Baton Rouge Regional that will be hosted by LSU and begin today at Alex Box Stadium.

Astros to honor J.R. Richard

Former Lincoln High star to join franchise ‘Walk of Fame’
Richards.jpg

In his time, there wasn’t a righthander — or lefthander, for that matter — who was more intimidating to major league hitters.
Simply put, James Rodney Richard was flatout scary to any batter that stepped into the box during the late 1970s.
It wasn’t just because he had a Mt. Everest presence, standing 6-8.
It was also because he made radar guns work overtime and blink twice at the MPH’s he was clocking.
Big J.R. was fastball cool long before ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” made seemingly every 90-plus miles’ per hour chunker a highlight film.
