Ginn, Brice lead ‘Elite’ team

Creek, RHS stars headline All-Parish picks
SPORTS 3.jpg

After the productive seasons they had in 2011, maybe the only players who could have slowed down Austin Ginn and Kentrell Brice would have been…..

Jessie’s Jottings

LSU showed little spunk in title game
Jessica Gafford.jpg

I don’t think I’m going to waste my time writing about the BCS national championship game.
Though it really grinds my gears that LSU was held to zero points throughout the game and Alabama played amazing defense. The Madden type score of 21- 0 makes me wonder what the hype was about the Tigers in the first place. But “Honey Badger” really, you couldn’t get the team within field goal range? The offense completely stalled in this game while defense kept the Crimson Tide from completely running amuck. But I digress, because as stated I would not go off on a radical tangent.

Get an edge in the job market

DeGrie, Elizabeth.jpg

These days most people aren’t relaxing in their swivel chairs enjoying a high level of job security. Likewise, most of us know or have heard of someone who has lost their job recently. If you know any college graduates, you’ve likely also heard tales of engineers stuck being bartenders and writers working in coffee shops just to pay the bills.

The real hero saves the day

Perry, Owen.jpg

When “El” (short for Elbert) was barely 15 his father, Lafe Cottrell, dropped dead of a sudden heart attack while “layin’-by” his cotton.

He didn’t return to school that fall, or in the 15 more that followed. Seeing a “good education as the only way I know of gettin’ these kids to amount to somethin’,” as he put it, “El” worked tirelessly to provide food, clothing and tuition for two younger brothers and one sister. And it paid off.
