GRAMBLING —The Grambling High Kittens (1-2) didn’t exactly have a warm welcome home Friday night when the Jonesboro Hodge Tigers (1-3) took a 56-28 victory at Robinson Stadium.
“We didn’t play well at all,” Kittens’ Head Coach Jerald Kennedy said.
Jonesboro-Hodge (1-3) was the first to get on the board when running back Travis Young took a 52-yard run into the end zone, but that didn’t intimidate the Kittens.

Woman: Choudrant may lose post office

in

The village of Choudrant has been growing for many years. First it was the cotton gins and now it is a country club with a golf course, a Dollar General and the expansion of Choudrant Appliance.
Through it all we have always had a post office, first it was a small one in downtown Choudrant, and then it moved to U.S. 80 across from the high school. Choudrant is a small town, but it is growing both commercially and residentially and has extended its city limits to include Squire Creek.
