Men, women invest differently

in
Conville, Bobby.jpg

When couples live together in a committed marriage or partnership, domestic compatibility differences come to light — one leaves the cap off the toothpaste and misplaces car keys; the other may insist there’s just one way to load a dishwasher.

Moore, Byron.jpg

in
Davis, OK.jpg

Derrick Dooley is playing “babysitter” for the Dallas Cowboys this season.
The former Louisiana Tech University head coach probably didn’t know what he was getting in to when he accepted head coach Jason Garrett’s request to become the new wide receivers coach for “America’s Team.”
Dooley is a specialty coach for the Cowboys in the area of wide receivers, where Bryant displays his talents as well as being immature to the ways of being a professional player.

In an all too-fitting Homecoming event, shortly before the kickoff of Saturday’s game pitting Grambling State against Mississippi Valley State, GSU honored its greatest legend.
Six years after his death, what was before known as Robinson Stadium was officially renamed Eddie G. Robinson Stadium. The stadium was opened in 1983 and players from that season as well as Robinson’s granddaughter Cherie Kirkland were on hand for the celebration.
Five players from the 1983 GSU football team that played in Robinson Stadium returned to their alma mater for the official renaming ceremony.

110313 PENTAX DEER C.jpg

Deer season for regular firearms kicked off this past Saturday in Area 2 and since I don’t bow hunt and no longer pack a muzzleloader, this would be deer season opening day for me. I was pumped.
I joined my hunting buddy George and his daughter at our camp in Jackson Parish to spend the night and get ready for Saturday’s opening.
After a restful night of sleep and a hearty breakfast of biscuits, eggs and bacon, I headed out the door to face a morning chill; winds were calm and the thermometer read 40 degrees, a perfect way to kick off opening day.
