Derrick Dooley is playing “babysitter” for the Dallas Cowboys this season.
The former Louisiana Tech University head coach probably didn’t know what he was getting in to when he accepted head coach Jason Garrett’s request to become the new wide receivers coach for “America’s Team.”
Dooley is a specialty coach for the Cowboys in the area of wide receivers, where Bryant displays his talents as well as being immature to the ways of being a professional player.

In an all too-fitting Homecoming event, shortly before the kickoff of Saturday’s game pitting Grambling State against Mississippi Valley State, GSU honored its greatest legend.
Six years after his death, what was before known as Robinson Stadium was officially renamed Eddie G. Robinson Stadium. The stadium was opened in 1983 and players from that season as well as Robinson’s granddaughter Cherie Kirkland were on hand for the celebration.
Five players from the 1983 GSU football team that played in Robinson Stadium returned to their alma mater for the official renaming ceremony.

Deer season for regular firearms kicked off this past Saturday in Area 2 and since I don’t bow hunt and no longer pack a muzzleloader, this would be deer season opening day for me. I was pumped.
I joined my hunting buddy George and his daughter at our camp in Jackson Parish to spend the night and get ready for Saturday’s opening.
After a restful night of sleep and a hearty breakfast of biscuits, eggs and bacon, I headed out the door to face a morning chill; winds were calm and the thermometer read 40 degrees, a perfect way to kick off opening day.

Irby, Marna.jpg

Halloween is upon us and today is memorable for me. My only sibling, Esthman Newman, former editor of The Ruston Leader, was born on this day in 1917. His job with the paper was his first after graduating from Louisiana Tech.
Later, Wiley Hilburn, worked with him when he was Wire Editor of the Shreveport Times.
Esthman died of a massive heart attack at 49 on the morning he was to have opened the Louisiana Press Association annual meeting in New Orleans. Mr. Clarence Faulk was publisher and owner of The Leader and like a second father to my brother.
