Let athletes enjoy their youth

How young is too young?
It’s no secret college football has become a big business, meaning finding the best football players for a program has become increasingly important in recent years.
But is a 15-year-old ready to choose a college?
It’s seems more and more football programs believe the answer to that question is yes.
ESPN.com reported LSU received a verbal commitment from such a player over the weekend as 2017 linebacker prospect Dylan Moses of Baton Rouge’s University Lab High School pledged to join the Tiger football program following graduation.

Degrie, Elizabeth 8-13 NEW.jpg

I find it sort of ironic that “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury is one of the Top 100 Banned and Challenged books from 2000-09. If you’re missing the irony, it’s because the book — one of my favorite mandatory reads in junior high school — directly deals with the topic of banning books. If you’re unfamiliar with the storyline, within the fictional world all books have been banned and firefighters burn books, rather than fight fires.

At 4 p.m. Saturday, people gathered in Choudrant to watch outhouses fly down Elm Street.
There were a variety of people at the Outhouse Races, from first time observers to seasoned participants.
Judith Balsamo, from Calhoun, came to watch her father participate for a second time. This was her first time at the Outhouse Races.
“My dad, King Knox, came as an observer in 2010 and decided to participate,” Balsamo said. “Dad can’t just watch; he has to participate.”
Several people were new to the Outhouse Races experience.

The invigorating energy of motivational speaker Harvey Alston fired up an audience of faculty members at Grambling State University’s service learning lunch appreciation ceremony last week.
He focused on stressing the importance of service and community heroes. He reminisced about a visit to an elementary school classroom and talking to students who defined heroes as Superman, Spiderman and Chad Ochocinco, an NFL football player.
“Does anyone know what a hero is?” Alston asked. He said the older generation is to blame for the younger generation’s hero worship.
