Ice damage killed the Eisenhower Tree on 17 a few weeks ago.
A bad back got Tiger a few days ago.
Speaking of animals, Monday it rained on Augusta National like cats and Georgia Bulldogs. A gray, soaking, pine pollen washer.
But like Ike’s Tree and Tiger Woods, the bad weather and all its effects were gone by Thursday’s opening round, leaving the joint open for some early April golf magic, all the history and beauty and legend the year’s first major championship is so famous for.
You know: all that lore stuff.

Having a love for indie films

in
Sadler, John.jpg

I love movies. Independent movies especially. There is something inspiring about a person creating such an expensive thing as a movie from his own pocket.
Now, calm down. This is not some hipster manifesto as to why independent movies are so much better than Marvel comic movies or sci-fi blockbusters. Those types of movies have a lot to offer, just in different ways.

The litter crew of the Lincoln Parish Detention Center picked up trash along Stable Road, east of Burgessville Road, on Wednesday.
Supervisor Jerone Jackson said the crew picks up trash along roads all over the parish nearly everyday.
