022514 Osborne C.jpg

For 13 years Eldonta Osborne has put in time and effort into the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Louisiana.
But if it wasn’t for his past — playing football in junior high and on into the National Football League — Osborne might not have had what it takes to fulfill his duties.

Stockton, Gary.jpg

I was driving through town last week and saw a gentleman spreading fertilizer on a lawn. I realize we hit temperatures in the 70s, but I’m thinking to myself that it’s way too early to be putting out fertilizer for any of our lawn grasses.

It was only colder and more dreary on Thursday. However, one knows that a very good Caney Lake Good Sammers covered dish dinner can just about cure or solve anything. And so, that table laden with all good dishes did that very thing — warmed the building, the campers and the conversation.  Larry Bond imparted many jokes upon the group.
