Wildlife artistic works on display

Sport pg9.jpg

When the announcement was made about an exciting event about to take place in Farmerville, I put a big red circle around the date on my calendar.
It’s the “Wild” art exhibit put together and sponsored by the Union Museum of History and Art.
There are gifted photographers, artists, taxidermists, wood carvers et al scattered around the country but for museum director Jean Jones to get the best of the best together in one spot to display their gifted works was quite an accomplishment.

The Bearcats got their kicks with a historic win Thursday night on James Field and L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.
Twelve years of frustration evaporated into the chilly air as the Ruston High boys soccer team advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2018 Louisiana High School Athletics Association’s Div. II soccer playoffs with a 1-0 win over St. Thomas More.
While they had plenty of offensive opportunities, the Bearcats only needed one goal, and that came with 22 minutes left in the first half as Daniel Rivera kicked off a pass to Andy Gomez for the game winner.

As far as “least likely greetings when answering the phone,” this one absolutely takes the prize.
“Good afternoon,” the caller said. “I understand you might be my father.”
Say WHAT?!
Like many of you, my mobile has been bombarded recently by spam callers. You can tell most of them are bogus because the locations that come up as the point of origin for the call is somewhere where you know no one. I’ve even had two calls that I apparently made to myself.

Hawley, Heather.jpg

Growing up in Louisiana, Mardi Gras has been a large part of the early months of year since I was little.
While I have never attended a parade in New Orleans, I have seen my fair share of plastic beads being thrown to overexcited crowds.
