GRAMBLING — A renewal of its rivalry against Interstate Highway 20 neighbor, a rare 12 regular season games and first-ever meeting with a Texas-based university, plus an appearance in an NFL venue provide an extra glimmer to the 2013 football schedule announced by Grambling State University.
Arguably, it’s one of the most attractive slates in the school’s history, one that will begin with an Aug. 31 home game against Southwestern Athletic Conference opponent Alabama A&M University at Robinson Stadium on campus.

Rogers, Randy.jpg

Guy goes to a psychiatrist office. He says to the shrink: “My brother thinks he’s a chicken.” The shrink asks, “Why don’t you have him committed?” He says, “I would, but we need the eggs.”
That’s funny. What’s not funny is what you (really) have to go through these days to get someone mental health care. Eggs or no eggs, it will drive you nuts.

Boys don't want to be 'equal'

in
Rosemond, John.jpg

Q: Our two sons are in the fifth and sixth grades at a private school that just held a father-daughter dance. Now the school has announced that it’s putting on a mother-son dance so as not to leave out the boys. I really don’t want to attend this. It’s just not my thing. One of our boys says he doesn’t really want to go. The other one says he’d like to go but doesn’t mind if I don’t want to. What are your thoughts?

Simmons, Amanda.jpg

I know, I know, you’re thinking: “But it’s not summer yet!” Well, that is true, but registration for 4-H summer camp will begin Feb. 18.
Because 4-H Summer Camp is one of the most important events that 4-H offers for youth, planning has to start early. Camping is one of the most valuable experiences a child can have. It’s a learning experience that helps boys and girls appreciate the outdoors, live together as a group, get along with others and appreciate people with different interests and backgrounds. Many fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade boys and girls participate in 4-H Summer Camp. The camp is held at the LSU AgCenter’s Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center, an 80-acre campsite located near Pollock, on Highway 8 about 15 miles northeast of Alexandria.
