Ivan Wilson, Jr. spent portions of last summer participating in All-Star baseball games.
And while an illness — chest congestion, flu-like symptoms — will prevent him from participating, the senior outfielder at Ruston High School has been selected for the Perfect Game USA Baseball World Showcase to be held this weekend in Fort Myers, Fla.
Wilson was one of 100 top-rated prep players from throughout the country chosen for the event which is sanctioned by Major League Baseball and will be held Saturday and Sunday at Terry Park in Fort Myers.

Andy Griffin was credited with disputing the mathematical equation of “pi are square” with a correction of “pie are round, cornbread are square.” Being a Southerner, he should have known better.

Cornbread demands smothering love. You can cover under a blanket of chicken and dumplings or you can plaster with a ladle of thick, brown gravy.

When MTV was not reality

Bowman, Molly.jpg

I first realized the world of television was changing when I heard Bowling for Soup’s 2004 song “1985.” The verses that included “when did reality become TV” and “music still on MTV” brought to my attention how much television has changed since I was in elementary school.
Nowadays, there is an overflow of reality televisions shows that fill up most time slots on MTV and other channels like BET and VH1. It seems like anyone with a somewhat interesting life or even a mundane life can score their own show.
