We’re sitting here on the cusp of one of my favorite times of year.
It’s spring; dogwoods and azaleas are blooming, everything is turning green, except for the yellow dust that falls like a heavy mist from my pine trees. I’ve already had to break out the lawn mower so, yes, it is spring.

in
Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

Because it’s March, we’re mad about all things dealing with basketball in today’s Corral.
Let’s go to the opening tip:
“MAILMAN” PEEVED: Karl Anthony Malone could not play in today’s NBA.
It has more to do with the climate of the pro game than his age (53), although the latter number likely wouldn’t prevent him from mixing it up under the basket.

Nine months ago, when the Rev. Ryan Ford was named director of the United Methodist Wesley Foundation campus ministry at Louisiana Tech University, he brought with him the hope that someday the ministry could make small-scale and sustainable farming part of its discipleship.

Ford never imagined it would happen so soon. Three weeks ago, the Wesley Foundation entered into partnership with the city of Ruston on a community gardening project that supporters say can help revitalize part of the city, produce healthy food, be educational and bear witness to God’s kingdom.
