Town and Country Presents “The Lost Ways”

March 16-Backyard

Chicken Flocks

If you have never raised livestock one of the best way to get started is chickens. They don’t need much room and they are one of the least expensive animals to raise. They are also just a lot of fun, each hen with her own unique personality. And oh yeah, the eggs out of your back yard taste sooo much better than the store bought varieties plus backyard eggs contain less cholesterol, less saturated fat and far more vitamin A, vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids than the ones in styrofoam crates.

Backyard Chicken Flocks for Beginners will be taught by Winnfield’s very own Donnie Moon. Our county agent will help beginners get off to the right start as he covers the basics of raising backyard poultry.

Tigers Baseball Season Starts Off With Two Victories

WSHS Tigers

The WSHS Baseball Tigers started their season off on the winning side when they welcomed 3A Caldwell Spartans for their home opener. Once again the JV got good vibes rolling when they were victorious in 3 innings, with a stellar offense performance with a score of 9-2. The Varsity hen took the field and cranked up some offense of their own. The weather was freezing but the boy’s bats were hot as the Tigers jumped out to a commanding lead. However Caldwell slowly itched their way back with a strong inning causing the game to continue. But the boys bounced back and the offense woke up in the bottom of the 5 th inning causing the game to be called. The Tigers notched their first win prevailing 18-8.

The boys then traveled down south to the Ross Granger Prep Classic on February 22-23. In their first matchup on Friday the Tiger’s played against last year’s State Champion 2A powerhouse Notre Dame.
