It’s been that kind of season for the Grambling State Tigers.
What looked to be a close game on paper was anything but in reality as Prairie View A&M topped the Tigers 31-3 Saturday before a crowd of 27,745 in Southwestern Athletic Conference action at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
The numbers in the stat books were definitely deceiving in this one.
Grambling, now 0-6 overall and 0-3 in the SWAC, actually outgained Prairie View with 329 total yards, edging past the Panthers’ 327. GSU held the ball 31:55 compared to 28:05 for Prairie View.

Learn about fire prevention

We’ve all heard the slogan “Only you can prevent forest fires” made famous by Smokey Bear. But, the same is for any other kind of fire — only we can prevent them.
Today-Saturday marks Fire Prevention Week for Louisiana, and the Louisiana State Fire Marshal wants us to be reminded to prevent kitchen fires.
“Often when our firefighters are called to a fire that started in the kitchen, the residents tell them that they only left the kitchen for a few minutes,” said Butch Browning, state fire marshal. “Sadly, that’s all it takes for a dangerous fire to start.”

Time to hear from Muslim majority

in

The atrocities being perpetrated regularly around the globe in the name of the Prophet Mohammed are chilling. It is no longer considered an unusual event to hear — as we have all recently experienced — of the Islamic terror attack in a Kenyan shopping mall and the Islamic massacre of 81 worshipping Christians in Pakistan, with the battle cry that “the Christian minority is a threat to Islam.”
