in

GRAMBLING –— Coach Joseph Price said he saw in practice on Thursday that his guys wouldn’t be ready to play on Saturday, and that showed in their 79-59 blowout loss to Jackson State University.
The Grambling State University men’s basketball team only trailed Jackson State (10-16, 6-8 Southwestern Athletic Conference) by three points at the end of the first half, but after they failed to register a field goal for nearly six minutes in the start of the second half, JSU ran away with the game behind Javeres Brent’s 23 points.

Memories of area legends now gone

Davis, Buddy (New) C.jpg

Death and taxes.
Like it or not, they are part of everyone’s time on this earth.
I’ve been reminded of that since this year began.
Seldom has a day gone by when some type of notice dealing with the annual (and dreaded) tax deadline of April 15 hasn’t arrived in the mail.
Then there’s the death part.
Three of the last four columns in this Sunday morning space have included tributes to four Lincoln Parish or area residents who I have counted as friends: Bill Bradshaw, Mike Reed, Wiley Hilburn, Jr., and Mickey McHale.
