Coaching changes during the summer will mean students and student-athletes will notice several new, or in some cases, old, as in previous, coaches in the classroom and on the playing fields.

New weapon against feral pigs

By Glynn Harris

Ron and Tes Jolly operate a farm in east-central Alabama. Tes is a nationally-known wildlife photographer while Ron works for the state of Alabama and is an award winning outdoors writer.

I read an article by Ron in the July-August issue of Turkey Country magazine, published by the National Wild Turkey Federation. This article hit home because the problems the Jolly’s are having on their Alabama farm mimics the problems land owners, hunting lease members and the general public are also having here in Louisiana.

Wobblehead turns heads in hot weather

By Glynn Harris

Ruston’s Greg Terzia is a serious bass fisherman. He regularly competes in tournaments and has won his share of them.

Last week, Terzia was fishing an event at Lake D’Arbonne when he set the hook in the jaw of a 6 pound bass.

“I was using a Wobblehead when the bass sucked it in,” said Terzia. “This time of year, this lure can be dynamite, especially if you don’t like to fish deeper water. You’ll have better luck with the Wobblehead in fairly shallow water, two to eight feet deep.”

Youth program… From dream to reality

What began as an idea on the heart and mind of one man to fill a need in the community has now become a reality with over a dozen youth and adults involved in the IronHead Youth Development Program, Inc. in Jena, but the kids need the help of the community for the program to continue.

The IronHead Y.D.P. is currently selling t-shirts to help fund the program as well as accepting donations. Before giving, community members might say – “But what is this program all about?” Founder LaJerrick “L.J.” Taylor says an IronHead is someone who embodies the program’s mission statement: Invigorate, Respect, Optimal Health, Nourishment, Honor, Encouragement, Ambition, Dream.
