In the midst of the outrage, however, is a heightened focus on the issue of domestic violence. Many men are taking the time to express their disapproval of this type of conduct. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other types of social media are packed with vehement statements by men that women should be treated with dignity and respect.

The final May meeting of the Pierian Club was a springtime salad luncheon in Teri Fulton’s home.

Derek Jeter: Last of a dying breed?

in
Davis, OK.jpg

There may be some readers out there this morning, when they see the above headline, who are saying, ‘Oh no, not another story on Derek Jeter.’”
Bear with me.
Yes, we’ve all probably been “Jeterized” by now, but that’s not such a bad thing, either.
In a day and age when TMZ.com investigative reporters uncover more dirt on some athletes and others in the entertainment world than Police Gazette magazine, it’s refreshing to read and hear about someone with the impeccable qualities of Derek Sanderson Jeter.
He has retired at exactly the right time in our culture.
Why?

Louisiana Tech University turned in its biggest win in more than20 years Saturday night as the Bulldogs smashed the University of Texas-El Paso 55-3 in front of a crowd of 18,157 at Joe Aillet Stadium.
The 52-point margin of victory was the biggest for the Bulldogs since a 63-10 win over Mississippi Valley State in the season opener in 2000. It was also the biggest margin of victory in a conference game since a 61-6 win over UL-Monroe in 1953.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Red-hot Grambling State University went with its hottest hand Saturday as the Tigers roared to a 38-28 road win over Alabama A&M at Louis Crews Stadium.

Junior quarterback Johnathan Williams passed for two touchdowns and ran for another to lead in his first start of the season.

Bearcats hold off Gators in 23-10 win

in
100514 RHS Thurman C.jpg

Knowing two of its primary weapons were out for the game, the Ruston Bearcats realized they had some offensive questions Friday night against Captain Shreve at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.
And it was senior running back Qayshon Thurman combing with the Bearcats’ big-play defense that helped provide the answers as Ruston downed the Gators 23-10.
Ruston lost first-string running Jawuan Wright earlier this season with a broken leg, and starting quarterback Ben LeBlanc left last week’s game with a concussion and was ruled out against Captain Shreve.

Cougars victorious in Homecoming comeback

Last-minute touchdown propels Cedar Creek past Caldwell, 20-16
100514 Creek Clark C.jpg

Football coaches often like to stick to a game plan throughout an entire contest.
But sometimes it’s the unscripted things that can make a difference.
Cedar Creek proved just that Friday night as the Cougars used a little “sandlot logic” to pull off a late 20-16 homecoming win over Caldwell in a come-from behind thriller at Cougar Stadium.
The Class 1A Cougars trailed 16-14 late in the contest when Caldwell, a 3A school, went for the win by going for it on a fourth-and-four situation in their own territory.

Donnell becomes big play target for Giants

in
Donnell, Larry.jpg

By the time you start reading this story, Larry Donnell will no longer be the best-kept secret in the NFL.
Not with the way he has started out the season and especially during his most recent game.
When Donnell runs out on the field today for the New York Giants against the Atlanta Falcons, he may very well be mentioned in the same sentence with Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten and Antonio Gates as one of the top tight ends in the league.
No kidding.
Yes, this is the same Larry Donnell who was an undrafted free agent out of Grambling State University in 2012.
Say what?

Hunting season begins ramping up

in
100514 SQUIRREL EATS BEECH MAST C.jpg

By the time you read this, hunting seasons will have kicked off with a “twang” and a “bang.”
Bow season for deer became legal at dawn Oct. 1 while squirrel hunting commenced yesterday.
I have to admit that I’ve never bow hunted. It’s a fun and exciting event I never tried with the main reason being my love for chasing bushy-tails, especially on opening day.
Sitting in a stand with archery equipment waiting on a deer seemed to me to be a waste of my time. I’d rather be sneaking through the woods watching for a branch to move or listen for an acorn to drop.
