Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

It really is the most wonderful time of the year, but that could quickly turn in the other direction if you aren’t careful when choosing and putting up your Christmas decorations.
Each year hospital emergency rooms treat about 8,700 people for injuries, such as falls, cuts and shocks related to holiday lights, decorations and Christmas trees.

Davis, OK.jpg

On further review, and based solely on monetary reasons, I should have picked another profession.

My grandfather on my Dad’s side wanted me to be either an architect or general contractor.
For a while there, between the ages of 9 to 12 years old, that route appealed to me, mainly because I enjoyed tagging along with my grandfather to construction sites where he served as a contractor.

HUNTINGTON, W.V. — Marshall’s Rakeem Cato hit Deon-Tay McManus on a five-yard scoring strike with 1:50 remaining Saturday as the Thundering Herd rallied to take a 26-23 win in a rain-soaked Conference USA championship game.
Tech’s defense forced four turnovers against the Herd (12-1, 7-1 C-USA), but it was a giveaway of their own that sealed the Bulldogs’ fate as on the first play following the ensuing kickoff, Tech’s Cody Sokol was picked off by Neville Hewitt and the Thundering Herd ran out the clock from there.

Another regular season is in the books for the football programs at Lincoln Parish’s two universities.
