Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards (center) shared a moment with Louisiana Press Association honoree Tom Kelly (left) and State Representative Jim Fannin (right) in Baton Rouge last Tuesday. Kelly was recognized for a career spanning over 60 years in the newspaper industry. Governor Edwards was the guest speaker for the newspaper association’s annual meeting while Fannin presented Kelly with a Louisiana Senate Resolution introduced by State Senator Gerald Long in honor of Kelly’s distinguished career in journalism.

The Louisiana Press Association recognized Dodson native Tom Kelly last week for a career spanning over 60 years in the newspaper industry.

Kelly was honored in Baton Rouge last week at a Louisiana Press Association (LPA) Luncheon, where Governor John Bel Edwards delivered the keynote address. Kelly reminded the Governor his publication, The Piney Woods Journal, endorsed him four years ago and joked he would do it again had he not sold his paper.

In addition to receiving the LPA honored, Kelly was presented with special recognition from the Louisiana Senate through the efforts of Senator Gerald Long. Long was unable to attend the luncheon, but State Representative Jim Fannin of Winnfield presented the resolution to Kelly on behalf of Sen. Long.

Calvin High School Lady Cougars

When the 2019 softball season started, the young Calvin team dedicated themselves to 4 goals: 1. Win the District Championship, 2. Fight their way through the playoffs and make the State Championship round in Sulphur, 3. Win the semifinal game, and 4. Play for the State Championship.

Friday and Saturday, the team accomplished every preseason goal and dreamed of taking one more step: Win the State Championship.

The semifinal game on Friday was a pitcher’s duel. For six innings neither team scored. In the bottom of the 6th, Calvin’s bats delivered and they scored 3 runs. In the 7th, Harrisonburg (the 2018 State Runner up) tried to rally, but the defense held, and Madison Dupree struck out the final batter (one of 13 for the game) for the victory.
