Lakeview no match for high-powered Tigers

By Daniel Jones, editor

The 0-8 Lakeview Gators were no match for the Many Tigers during their game at John Curtis Tiger Stadium in Many on October 19.

The problems for Lakeview were apparent from the start. After taking the initial kickoff a Gator was upended at the 27-yard line, beginning their first offensive series of the night. Shortly after an illegal procedure penalty against Lakeview, it was Myron Warren, who has been receiving lots of interest from large Division 1 colleges after opening up his recruiting again, dropped the quarterback with a huge tackle.

The Gators were forced to punt, giving the Tigers fantastic field position due to a horse collar tackle, which added 15 on to the initial return.

LSMSA Class of 2018 excels past state average ACT scores

The Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts’s (LSMSA) class of 2018 posted a composite score of 29.2 on the national college admissions and placement test, far exceeding state average ACT scores.

This score ties with class of 2015 and class of 2016’s scores as the highest composite ACT score in the school’s history.

It was reported that the state’s average composite score was 19.2, a decrease from last year’s score of 19.5.

“State levels keep going down while our levels keep going up,” said LSMSA’s Executive Director Steven Horton. “That says a lot!”

The ACT is scored on a scale of 1 to 36, with 36 being the highest possible score. Students also receive scores in four individual testing areas, which are combined for the composite score. The individual testing areas are English, mathematics, reading and science.

Patchwork

By Donna Smith Ammons

After the long, hot summer, Autumn made her way to Sabine Parish with rain, chilly temperatures and dreary days. However, it was a relief from the muggy summer season, which seemed to last forever.

Welcome Autumn in October. Lots of ragweed on the roadsides and pastures. Achoo!!

Football for the Many Tigers is underway with big wins for Head Coach Jess Curtis and the team. Will this be the year that the Tigers take a trip to the Superdome in New Orleans. Methinks, it is!!

Fall break is over and the students are back in school.

Last week, a little neighbor girl, Ava, pedaled her bike up the driveway and asked, “What are you and Mr. Kenneth doing for fall break?” I assume she was under the impression that everyone got off for fall break!!! We looked at each other and grinned. No kids…… little work….and lots to do around the house.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

RAMBLING AROUND

I looked over some old files and remembered the old days when all Democrats were not so far to the left, (known as Conservative Democrats). They would vote Democrat or Republican. I ran across a few comments from former U.S. Senator J. Bennet Johnston, a Democrat from Shreveport. A question was asked to him about the recent Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanagh. He stated that he thought Kavanagh should be confirmed. He said he has shown himself to be a good lawyer and has a good judicial temperament. From a Democrat standpoint, elections have consequences. He is not the guy the Democrats would have put in if they had the opportunity, but GOP won the election, made the nomination, and he needed to be confirm.
