Honoring the Passing of One of the Greats

By Glynn Harris

Christmas is undoubtedly the most special season of the year for most of us. I can still recall how enchanting the day was when I was growing up. Gathering around the tree on Christmas morning provided a thrill like no other I’ve experienced in my lifetime. What was so very special about our tree was the fact that our dad would lead my brother, sister and me into the woods around our country home where we’d make our way to a particular cedar he had located. He’d cut the tree, we’d bring it home, the aroma of cedar would permeate our home and it would soon be transformed to a thing of beauty with silver icicles, red roping, brightly colored glass balls with a home-made star on top.

Sixty-Five Year Quest Finally Pays Off For Stuart

“I’ll soon be 75 years old and have hunted deer since I was ten years old. I’ve killed some deer but nothing like the one I got last month. This buck is the kind of deer I’ve been after for 65 years,” said retired Columbia utility operator, James Curry Stuart. The buck Stuart downed on November 19 on his hunting lease in Caldwell Parish was worth the wait. The 13 point buck with an inside spread of nearly 20 inches was scored at over 145 inches of antler mass.

Outdoors Books Make Great Christmas Gifts

As I sit at my computer writing this week’s column, it’s chilly; it’s nasty; it’s raining outside. Once I get my column done, I’ll likely kick back in my recliner, pour a cup of coffee and chill out with a good book, preferably outdoors themed. With Christmas approaching, I’m pleased to share a few books that your hunter-angler spouse or brother or friend would love to find under the Christmas tree this year.

Winnfield Finishes First Round Playoffs with Loss

Coach Andy Pyles, his coaching staff and the WSHS Tigers took a trip to Longville, Louisiana this past Friday night with hopes of bringing home a post-season win, but the South Beauregard Knights just gave them a long ride home. This is the first season since 2007 that our Tigers haven’t gone past the first round of playoffs, and after 9 years of extended seasons, they had no reason to believe this year would be any different. Unfortunately, the Knights held the Tigers to only one touchdown, while they managed to put 36 points on the board. Coach Pyles said the team came out strong and played really hard in the first half, but that they simply made too many mistakes in the second half. Mental mistakes seem to have plagued the team all season. He added that the fact that “so many guys were out with injuries really hurt us. Some of the guys were able to play, but weren’t 100% and it showed.”
