The Many Tigers move 3-0 on the season and an undefeated 2-0 in district play after a resounding defeat of the Menard Eagles at John Curtis Tiger Stadium 40-7 on October 16.

The game didn’t begin with the explosion out of the gate that the Tigers are so well-known for, racking up two penalties to start the game. Despite forcing the Eagles into a punt during the opposing team’s first possession, it wasn’t until the Tigers recovered a fumble several series later that they began their impressive offensive production. On the next play following the recovery, Terrence Williams broke through for a touchdown and put the Tigers up 7-0.

The Eagles’ offense didn’t fare much better than before on the next possession, as the Tigers held them to a three-andout, with an illegal receiver downfield penalty sealing their fate.

Sylvia Brown recalls home remedies

Sylvia Brown recalls home remedies

Sylvia Brown

My quest began when my mother and aunt, both in their late 80s, shared memories with me about how when they were girls and a new sibling was born they would go to a nearby creek bed to dig plants to make a necklace for the new baby. Neither of them could remember the plant or what its purpose was, but thankfully Sylvia Evans Brown does remember.

Ms. Sylvia is a living, walking, talking fount of information. In her 99 years living in the Toro bottom / Rattan area of Sabine Parish she has seen a lot of changes, and she says her mind is as sharp as it ever was due to keeping active. She reads, works puzzles, quilts and crochets. She has been crocheting baby blankets so long that she says some families has three generations of blankets she’s made. A childless widow who lives alone, Ms. Sylvia is proud that she can do her own housework and cooking though she admits to her legs being some wobbly.
