You might think that softball was derived from baseball, but you would be off the mark.
The game of softball originated in Chicago on Thanksgiving Day in 1887.
A group of about 20 college men gathered in the gymnasium of the Farragut Boat Club in order to hear the outcome of the Harvard-Yale football game. After Yale’s victory was announced and bets were paid off, one of the men picked up a stray boxing glove and threw it at someone who hit it with a pole.

Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

Gov. Bobby Jindal never gives up. Despite the fact that his chances of being the 2016 Republican presidential nominee appear to be slim, Jindal keeps on trying.
Take, for example, his recent flip-flop on the controversial Common Core education initiative. He used to be for it, now he’s against it. Education issues are best left up to local folks, Jindal contends.

A budding poet

“The Amazing Louisiana Coast”
My coast, so broad, so wide,
The ocean blows side to side,
The coast, my life, my soul,
Ocean depths, black as coal,
“Stop the erosion, stop the decay!”
I shout to the ocean waves,
Save the creatures, crabs and all,
Don’t let them die like the ones they are,
Let us enjoy the coast,
Let us brag, let us boast,
This is the time to stop and savor,
Drop the tools for all labor,
Enjoy our beautiful coast,
For it might be gone in our futuristic most.
