Bradshaw receives Rozelle award

If laughter is the best medicine, then Terry Paxton Bradshaw has had the perfect prescription for success.
The former Louisiana Tech University star has been able to laugh at himself and the so-called “dumb” image that was placed on him as far back as during his Shreveport Woodlawn High playing days.

Trip to the circus was unforgettable

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

I joined the circus Sunday afternoon, and what an incredible experience it was.
My family and I ventured out to see the Barak Shriners Circus at the Monroe Civic Center. I’ll admit, Barnum and Bailey and Ringling Brothers it wasn’t, but a smaller scale didn’t prevent it from being a thrilling and fascinating experience, especially when part of your view is from the eyes of a seven-year-old.

‘Coon Dog’ makes big lift as legend

Davis, Buddy heashot.jpg

On a recent week day morning at the Princeton Place, while working in a few more Z’s, I suddenly felt a tap on my shoulder.
“Wake up, Buddy,” I heard the voice say.
It wasn’t a voice that I was accustomed to hearing as an occupant of the Jack Lambert Room (No. 58) at this time in the morning. I figured it was one of the aides or a therapist.
Instead, peering down at me was the familiar face of one Billy Jack Talton.
He had come bearing a gift dear to my heart, as many of my friends have come to know.
