Lake Association’s Lunker Program awards replicas

The Toledo Bend Lake Association (TBLA) awarded 39 Lunker Replicas to anglers on Saturday, July 25, at Cypress Bend Resort. Dinah Medine, coordinator of the TBLA Lunker Bass Program, presented the replicas to the anglers, along with TBLA president Ricky Yeldell and taxidermist Scottie Lucas. This event is traditionally held at the close of the Sealy Big Bass Splash, but due to Covid was rescheduled for social distancing.

All fish caught and registered through the program are tagged and returned to the lake to spawn and be caught again. The TBLA Lunker Bass Program is the signature conservation program among many projects sponsored by the Association to meet its mission: “to improve the quality of Toledo Bend Lake and the amenities surrounding it.”

LHSAA, Many Tigers prepare for fall sports; football guidelines, regulations in place

While many were lounging during a hot summer tinged with threats of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Many Tigers were hard at work preparing for a season that at times seemed destined for cancellation. Now, with LHSAA approving social distancing and other guidelines, the season seems much more likely.

Despite the high heat, the Many Tigers have been hard at work preparing for the upcoming football season, which was up in the air for a bit due to the coronavirus pandemic threat. They’ve completed their summer camp and began the fall camp on August 10. On August 5, the Louisiana High School Athletic Association released guidelines for the upcoming season with a number of regulations in place regarding social distancing and athlete safety.

The LHSAA’s guidelines were made with support from the NFHS, Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, and local health officials. The rules were approved by the LHSAA Executive Committee on August 5.

Phase two order extended; statewide mask mandate, bar closures slow spread of COVID-19

On August 6, Gov. John Bel Edwards signed an extension of his order keeping Louisiana in Phase Two and extending his statewide mask mandate, the closure of bars to on-premises consumption and the limitation on gatherings of more than 50 people for at least another 21 days, through Friday, August 28.

In Sabine, the Sabine Department of Homeland Security reported 614 cases of COVID-19 with all but 140 presumed to be recovered. Over the two days previous, there was an increase of 22 cases.

Gov. Edwards’ order to mandate masks and restrict bars matches recommendations from the White House Coronavirus Task Force and the advice of public health experts advising the Governor. The Governor’s order was upheld by Judge Janice Clark in the 19th Judicial District Court today.
