The Haynesville Golden Tornado ran for 297 yards Friday night, defeating the Cedar Creek Cougars 34-10 in District 1-1A play.
Haynesville improved to 6-1 on the season with a 2-0 district record. Cedar Creek fell to 1-6 on the season with a 0-2 district record.
Despite the lopsided final score, the Cougars made it a competitive game for the first three quarters of play. Only down 10 heading into the fourth quarter, Cedar Creek simply could not contain the Haynesville rushing attack late in the game.

I’m sure you remember it like I do. You get up on an early fall morning, take your coffee out on the porch to sip and commune with nature when you hear it.
BOB … WHITE …
Think for a minute. When was the last time you heard the crisp clear call of a bobwhite quail? For me, it’s been several years and if I heard one today, I’d be telling everybody about it, sort of like those days long ago when somebody found a deer track and the whole community turned out to view it.

Irby, Marna.jpg

This is my second attempt to do my column on a new computer, which I know practically nothing about.
When they changed the format on Facebook, I had to quit using it — it was just too confusing for me. Evidently, learning new technology is something that my brain refuses to deal with, but am so stubborn, I just keep trying.
I wanted to tell you about my new experience this week. I went to Highland Park cafeteria to eat dinner with Jonathan, Susan and Baby Sydney. We go there quite often because it’s quick,easy and has good food; plus, we sit at a table near the piano.

Club News: Caney Lake Good Sams

Hosts Margaret and Ed Aston and Jerrel Huey thought The Thomas Linge Community Center in Oak Grove would be a good place for the campers to go Sept. 24-27.
Everyone was familiar with the center until they pulled up to register. The usual parking lot was being blacktopped and striped, so the group had to meander a little to get to the area for the Wednesday night’s brown bag supper.
