Many Tiger football keeps gaining attention

Following the 2018 season, the Many Tigers had four athletes sign on to continue playing football at Division I schools. Pictured are Myron Warren, Tavier Williams, Coach Jess Curtis, Shacori Williams, and Ni’Kendrick Carter. (Photo courtesy Tina McCormic)

Having four athletes sign to NCAA Division I programs in one day was a record for the Many Tigers, but the future is looking just as fruitful with more talent developing daily.

Many ended the 2018 season not in the dome, but at home, having lost to Welsh in the semifinal for the second year in a row. That doesn’t count out their blockbuster season, which saw them take district with six wins and put up a 15-2 final record.

Such high-level play is sure to gain attention, which it has in droves.

Defensive end Myron Warren received much attention, especially after he de-committed from Texas Christian University earlier this year. He signed with the University of Texas Longhorns and will compete in the Big 12 Conference.

Patchwork

I cleaned out my little red hutch cabinet that sits in my kitchen. Talk about a chore! Mother and Daddy purchased the cabinet for about $25 right after they got married and it’s been a beloved piece of furniture that we moved all over the United States. It’s been a variety of colors. If memory serves me correctly it was yellow one time and blue another. It’s been red for years and Mom gave it to be years ago. It now sits in my kitchen and I use the shelving for display of cookbooks, old items, like my curling iron that Mom would heat on the stove; some of the boy’s little toys, a picture of Hubby-dear as a little boy, several of Gramma’s old cooking utensils and other things that bring back sweet memories.

Multiple vehicle crash claims life of Terrol Garner

On January 17, a crash involving three vehicles killed a man from Florien and injured several others.  The man killed was not wearing a seat belt.

Troopers responded to the crash around 4:40 p.m., which occurred on Highway 6 at Highway 476.  The crash involved a 2008 Dodge pickup, driven by Jerry O. Schellenger, 75, of Huntsville, Texas; a 1999 Ford pickup, driven by Marshall Maxie Jr., 54, of Florien; and a 1995 GMC pickup, driven by Louis T. Clinkscales, 69, of Leesville.  The Dodge was westbound on Highway 6, traveling directly behind the Ford.  As the Ford began to slow down and prepared for a left turn onto highway 476, the Dodge collided with its rear end.  This collision caused the Ford to enter the eastbound lane, which resulted in a second collision between the eastbound GMC and the Ford.

Schellenger was wearing his seat belt and sustained minor injuries.  He refused medical aid.
