JONESBORO — If only Cedar Creek could get one or two plays back from Friday’s game at Jonesboro-Hodge.
Nine turnovers proved too much to overcome Friday night as Cedar Creek fell 18-15 to the Tigers.
“We beat ourselves,” Cedar Creek coach Ben Haddox said. “Anytime you turn the ball over nine times and also lose another one when you snap the ball over the punter’s head, you’re putting yourselves in too much of a hole to get out of.”

Hunting season opens with bang, whimper

Guys and gals and young’uns, that magic time of year has arrived with a flourish with the opening of dove season this past weekend. Granted, there was something different about it and many of us missed the tradition of a barbecue under the shade of a big oak at noon in anticipation of a noon-time opening on the first day of season.

Buddy's Blog: Tramon Williams has his priorities in order

091414 Tramon Williams C.jpg

He’s made it to the very top of the football mountain (Super Bowl).
He’s been chosen to the ultimate all-star team in his profession (Pro Bowl).
He’s signed a lucrative contract that should make future years bright for him and his family.
But for Tramon Williams, all of this pales in comparison to what is most important in his life.
Above everything else, the former Louisiana Tech University defensive back wants to be remembered for his strong belief in God and for what he means to wife Shan, son Tramon Jr., and daughter Trinity.

Scotty Thurman Jr., that is.

Hotspot intersection gets improved

Sometimes getting anything done in government can be slow coming, but this was not the case when the Lincoln Parish Police Jury and the Department of Transportation and Development coordinated to implement traffic signals for the Louisiana Highways 33 and 821/Frasier Road intersection.
For years, the intersection has been a hotspot for vehicular accidents, but in the past year, there have been more incidents than ever and the death of a woman several months ago caused the police jury to take action.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should be fired.
I think of so many words: crime, disgust, hypocrisy. This stinks.
Do you know that we the fans and patrons of products pay his salary of more than $44 million a year? Do you know that the NFL is considered a “Not for Profit” organization? League revenue is not taxed. The NFL, in addition to what the teams make, made more than a quarter of a billion dollars last year.

Today is my birthday, and at the time I write this I can only hope that I’m not spending it like I did last year.
Through this column, I’ve raised awareness about diabetes, migraines, gluten intolerance and several other health issues. Unfortunately, the majority of them concern me on a personal level. Another such issue — vertigo — managed to ruin my birthday last year (and a couple of weekends since then too).
I’ve always been clumsy. I think this partially stems from the fact that I’ve always had inner ear problems, which my doctor said is probably to blame for my vertigo attacks.
