Four years on a town council is a term for most public officials. But for Ragan Aswell his four-year term turned into 48 years rather quickly.
“I was 22 or 24 when I was first appointed to the council,” Aswell said, as he took a seat inside his shop, Aswell Fertilizer and Feed Store.
“A lot of things have changed since I’ve been on the council.”
Aswell refers to the town council for the village of Choudrant, which he has been a member of for nearly five decades.
At age 74, Aswell said he decided to not seek re-election for his expiring term.

Imagine this “what if” scenario with Willie Roaf.
What if he had chosen basketball instead of football to concentrate on after his prep career had ended at Pine Bluff High in Arkansas?
Would he be going into a Hall of Fame on Tuesday dedicated to hoops?
It wouldn’t be all that shocking to those who have kept up with his athletic career.
“Basketball was my best sport growing up,” he said. “And I loved playing. I devoted my time to that and football.”

Fobbs, GSU shined in 2014

What a difference a year can make.
This time last year, Grambling State University football fans were lamenting a second straight one-win season and were wondering if the once-storied team would ever return to the level of success that made them considered to be the “Notre Dame of Black College Football.”
Today those same fans are celebrating the success of this season’s team and already looking forward to next year.
Grambling went 2-21 combined in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Only five of the 252 Division I college football programs won as few games during that span.
