Kittens remain winless after loss to L. Providence

in

The Grambling Laboratory High School Kittens fell to 0-3 on the season Friday as Lake Providence took a 22-12 win at rain-soaked Robinson Stadium in Grambling.
Both teams started strong, but it was the Panthers who would stay strong late to pull away from the Kittens.
“They took over late and there was nothing we could do,” Grambling coach Jerald Kennedy said. “We actually got off to a decent start, but it’s tough to play in the kind of weather conditions we had with all of the rain. All we could do is line up in the full-house backfield and try to run through the mud.”

If a bass angler wants to join up with fellow anglers and participate in fishing tournament, he’ll have no trouble finding a local group to welcome him. If he’s good enough, he might even bite the bullet and hook up with one of the big circuits, groups like the Bass Anglers Sportsman’s Society (BASS) or the FLW circuit.
For the average crappie angler, his interest generally lies in getting out on the lake to his favorite honey hole, dangling minnows or jigs around submerged brush hoping to tangle with enough crappie for a decent fish fry.

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I never knew much about money growing up. Are they doing much to teach kids about money in school? If not there, where do they learn about it?
Answer: Good question — apparently not in enough high schools.
