LAURA NEW.jpg

In early October there will be a fundraiser at the North Louisiana Exhibition Center. The Second Chance 2011 Car, Truck and Bike Show is one of many special events I’ve written about over the last few years.

For David Lee, maybe they should have sized his Super Bowl V championship ring for his thigh instead of his finger.
The long right leg on Lee’s athletic 6-4 frame was a handy weapon for the football teams of Minden High, Louisiana Tech University and, from 1966-’78, the Baltimore Colts.

David Aguilar doesn’t have to be reminded about the all-around talent of LuLu Perry.
In the 2010-11 Louisiana High School Athletic Association Class 4A playoffs, Perry lit up the scoreboard for 35 points to guide Benton to a first-round victory over Aguilar’s Ruston High squad.
