Isabella Brees Fleming, from Dodson, and Mariyah Harris, from Atlanta, are two outstanding young ladies who played on the same softball team for the Winnfield Recreation Department’s K&D Construction team.

Visit to Quebec Stirs Old Memories

On our way home from a weekend get-away to Mississippi, my wife and I exited I-20 for a stop in Tallulah. As we approached the on-ramp to get back on the interstate, a sign abruptly changed our plan. That particular on-ramp was closed, necessitating an alternate route west toward home.

Highway 80 parallels the interstate and we proceeded along the highway with cotton and soy bean fields stretching for thousands of acres on either side of the road, making for an impromptu but enjoyable side trip.

Bankston Talks About Setting Goals and Preparing For The WSHS Tiger Football Season

Last week I had the opportunity to sit down and meet with new Winnfield Senior High School Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Lyn Bankston, and he had plenty of positive things to share about the team and upcoming season.

He said one of the most impressive things about the team is that when they began discussing goals, they were not only about winning games, but were about developing values and principles. Coach Bankston said the first goal established was based on the acronym TEAM – Together everyone achieves more. The team’s second goal is to build trust in one another. Their third common goal is to affect someone in a positive way each day. The fourth goal the team set was to work through the process every day in all phases of their lives to become winners.

Whitetails Unlimited Returns to Area

A mid-summer phenomenon kicked off for the first time three years ago and is about to make its appearance again. The Lincoln Parish Chapter of Whitetails Unlimited will hold its annual banquet Thursday night, August 10, at the Ruston Civic Center.

The first event turned heads not only around northern Louisiana but around the country because of what took place that sultry August night. While this area is home to several outdoors events each year, nothing comes close to what happened that night. More than 400 folks showed up for this, the very first banquet this group sponsored.

WSHS Baseball Team Ends Season

The Winnfield Senior High School 2016 – 2017 baseball team finished their season with an overall record of 14 – 19 and 5–5 in district play. Although most would look at this record and say it’s not a winning season, others look beyond the numbers and know the boys have a lot to be proud of. The season was filled with joys, sorrows, errors, rough games, close losses, bad calls, double plays, shut outs, home-runs, a grand slam, amazing catches, defensive plays, close games, and great pitching! For these boys, baseball is not just a game – it is a way of life. Sometimes it is more than numbers or stats on a piece of paper. It is more than winning games. Baseball is about building character, working as a team, learning the importance of sportsmanship, and being there for your team-mates. Baseball is about playing a game you love with heart and integrity.

Thinking About Summertime

Summertime. What special meaning does it have for you? What thoughts and memories are triggered when you think about that three month span of time when the “living is easy and the cotton is high”?

To most of us, it’s trying to find a place to keep cool, getting outside work done early so as to avoid the penetrating heat of the summer sun. In my childhood days, though, it was a different story.

Summertime meant a three-month reprieve from sitting in a classroom and having to do homework. I’d count the days off during May, days that passed at the same snail’s pace as those last days before Christmas. When the school bell rang for the last time that school year, what an exciting time that was.
