The Many Tigers put on quite a show for the numerous fans returning home for Homecoming by completely routing the Bunkie Panthers 61-0 in district play.

Before the game started, a ceremony officially changed the name of the Tigers’ playing grounds to John Curtis Tiger Stadium, in honor of long-time local businessman and philanthropist John Curtis, whose love of football and the Many Tiger program cannot be matched.

At halftime, Karata Jackson was named this year’s Homecoming Queen.

Patchwork

By Donna Smith Ammons

Recently, someone asked me about hubby-dear’s Jeep. They wanted to know why we call him “Smitty.”

Smitty was my father’s nickname when he was in the Marine Corps. A likely nickname, since his last name was Smith.

My Dad died in 1975 after a six-month battle with lung cancer. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery near the nation’s capital city.

About a year ago, hubby-dear and I made a life change. One day I remarked, “I think it would be fun to get a small camper.”

What was I thinking? The next day, I found myself at Camping World looking at Class C campers. Before I knew it, we were the owners of a camper. Hubby dear was so happy….. my head was still spinning!!

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

By Pete Abington

GOOD STORY

Appearing in the JT column of the Natchitoches Times last week there was a good story about a group of men all relaxing getting ready for the car show that was about to occur in Natchitoches. Some of those men consisted of Barry Guillet and Gary DeBileux. It was a big deal and people were really excited. There were 360 cars lining the river bank, Front Street and much of Second Street. Over 600 catfish dinners were served Friday night. A lot of money went into these cars and they were beautiful. This particular car belonged to Dr. Steve Brown. I think it was a 1957 Chevrolet in mint condition and fully restored. It was parked initially in front of the office of Barry Guillet, Realtor. Dr. Brown left the car for a short while and someone from Guillet’s office went out and put a sign in the window of the car, which stated “For Sale - $2,875.00 - Must Sell Today”.
