Preparation key to success

in
Cox-Boniol mug.jpg

Tom and I were recently in Nashville for a weekend with friends. I’d spent quite a bit of time there when I was working for our local radio station, but the three of them were making their first foray into Music City. So I was happy to serve as the unofficial “tour guide” for the group, content to be retreading familiar ground. However, I would soon find myself in a most unexpected and mesmerizing situation.

Flying fish creating havoc for boaters

in
082513 Silver Carp C.jpg

There is a saltwater fish known for its ability to leap from the water. They create lots of entertainment when you get one on the line by its tendency to jump and jump and jump again.
They’re ladyfish and fishermen love them.
There’s also a freshwater fish known for its ability to leap from the water. You’re not going to get one to bite, unless you figure out how to get tiny little plankton to hang onto your hook.
They’re Asian (silver) carp and fishermen hate them.

Cooking for siblings started early

Double batches must be made for there to be enough

A family with four siblings may not seem like that big of a family to most people. But Morgan Crume Fuller says different.
“It was never just us here at the house,” she said. “It was always my brothers and all of their friends. Plus my friends, so it was a lot of us around the house.”
Morgan said she started helping her mom in the kitchen and then just sort of took over.
“My brothers knew if they asked mom to cook them something they might get it,” she said. “But if they asked me to cook it, they knew I would give in if they asked.”

082313 RHS Crawford KR C.jpg

At this point in the season, first-year Ruston High football coach Brad Laird just wants to see it over and over again.
So he must have liked much of what he saw Thursday night as his Bearcats scrimmaged against Byrd at Hoss Garrett Stadium.
While Byrd had the only score in the timed portion of the scrimmage on a 39-yard burst off tackle, Laird liked the fact that his Bearcats got to line up against another team and that they got when he says they need most — plenty of reps.
