Lady Giants pick up two district wins; Giants start district with Winnfield win

By Austin Whatley 

The Jena Lady Giants started district play a couple of weeks ago by playing the Buckeye Lady Panthers at home. The Lady Giants were looking to start strong in district play with a win. The Lady Giants have played well against the Lady Panthers the last couple of years as they have beat them 4 times in the last 2 years. Things would be no different this time around as the Lady Giants would start out with a 23-14 lead going into halftime.

The Lady Giants did an excellent job of taking care of the basketball and limiting their turnovers. The Lady Giants also played well on defense as they used their 2-3 zone to force the Lady Panthers to take a lot of contested long range shots. The Lady Giants would continue playing well in the 2nd half as they would go on to win the game 52-37.

Outdoors books make great Christmas gifts

By Glynn Harris

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.
