Paul’s younger brother has been steady in D-League
10-2.jpg

By Steve Hunt
Maybe Elijah Millsap has heard the famous Yogi Berra quote about it being déjà vu all over again but then again maybe he hasn’t.
But the Grambling native isn’t complaining about being back with the Los Angeles Defenders of the NBA Development League, especially after he averaged 19.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists for them last season when the D-Fenders won a league-record 38 games and played for the D-League title.

Tech, Grambling put emphasis on jucos

Parish school combine for 15 signees from that level
10-4.jpg

There was a notable similarity to the recently completed 2013 football recruiting seasons for Lincoln Parish’s two universities.
Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University applied a big emphasis to signing not just highly-regarded high school players, but obtaining seasoned and ready-to-perform representatives from the junior college ranks.
The Bulldogs and Tigers combined for 15 signees from that level.
Tech got the dotted line signature of 10 jucos and GSU five.

Deer antler velvet all the ‘rage’

Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl Sunday. I don’t know if Lewis used a banned performance enhancing substance like has been claimed in the news this past week. He said he didn’t and the fact he was pretty much a non-factor in the Ravens’ victory validates his claim.
The banned substance that has made all the news is a product provided by Sports With Alternatives to Steroids, or SWATS. The National Football League identifies a product found in the substance as IGF-1, a banned performance enhancing drug.

Harris tandem is champion at Fishers of Men tourney

11-1.jpg

The North Central Louisiana Division of Fishers of Men recently kicked off season No. 7 on Lake D’Arbonne.
With the incentive of a $2,000 guaranteed payout for first place, 38 area teams joined the competition, which was the start of the five-tournament series in which anglers vie for a bid to the organization’s annual district and national championships.
The anglers launched from Ludwig Brothers Marine just as the sun broke over the horizon.
The morning’s cool temperatures and calm winds gave way to a much warmer and windier afternoon, setting the perfect stage for a mid-afternoon weigh-in.

Remembering dad today on his birthday

in
Irby, Marna.jpg

Today is very special for me. As anyone who knows me knows, my dad has always been my hero and much of who I am, and how I conduct my life, still stems from things he and my mother taught me as a child.
He was born on Feb. 10, 1884. On Jan. 1, 1939, just before his 45th birthday, he came to Temple Church as pastor. I cannot believe so much happened in our lives that stems back to that move from South Louisiana.

’Tis the season of Lent

Welcome to the joyful season of Lent! That’s right, I said “joyful!”
What in the world is Lent, anyway? It begins Wednesday, believe it or not. For most Christian denominations, or traditions, it is the season of preparation before the great feast of Easter. In the Catholic Church, the year is divided into several “seasons,” where different things are celebrated. Ordinary Time is the long season between Christmas and Lent, and then Easter and Advent. Advent is the month or so before Christmas, when the Church prepares to receive the King of Glory into the world. But the season we are coming into this Wednesday has a feeling, or emotion, unique to itself. The sanctuary is vested, as is the priest, in somber tones of purple. Purple is the color or passion, of royalty, of sacrifice and of sorrow.
