Tigers troubled by North Desoto, lose 20-7

By Daniel Jones

The 2A Many Tigers held their first home game of the season against the Class 4A North DeSoto Griffins on September 14 and lost 20-6 in an absolute heartbreaker.

There are advantages to playing bigger schools from higher classes during the start of the season, as it allows teams to work out their kinks before taking on district play and eventually the playoffs.

The Griffins got the ball to start the game, but only put up a little yardage before the Tigers were to take over.

Patchwork

By Donna Smith Ammons

It’s Hurricane Season and this year, it means a litte bit more to me. My youngest son, Paul and his wife, Lexie, are residents of Wilmington, North Carolina and as I write this, they are looking at a Category 4 hurricane headed right for them!! Momma is not happy and to say the least, my daughter-in-law is probably packing her suitcase!!

Lexie is not a fan of thunder storms, let alone hurricanes. She has been watching the weather for a week now and is not a happy camper, since they love only about five minutes from Wrightsville Beach. They are in a third-floor condo, which doesn’t help her feelings.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

By Pete Abington

GOOD OLE STORY

Daily we have controversy and anger being stirred up on the t.v. and newspapers. Many times I find great relief to flip to an old Western station. These shows have always been at least a high-water mark to me. Maybe its because the good guy nearly always wins and that is a good feeling to bear in mind.

As I grew up through the years I felt like Many and Sabine Parish was a wonderful playground. On Saturday afternoons I would head to the movies - the Sabine Theater or the Many Theater. (I would get in free because I would deliver circulars for the theater). These movies would inspire my imagination to no end. I would stay for the double feature plus the serial (special between movies) that would consist of Clyde Beatty, Jungle Jim, Edgar Kennedy, the Three Stooges, etc. When I would come home I would be rolling and fired up in my imagination.
