The Caldwell Spartans came to town this past Friday night to take on the Jena Giants in the District 3-3A opener for both teams. The teams would not play on Friday though as a line of thunderstorms in front of a cold front moved through dumping a lot of rain on the field and lightning forced the teams to postpone until the next day at noon.

So the two teams kicked off at noon on Saturday in a big district matchup. The last three times that these teams have met have ended up finishing with a win margin less than a touchdown.

Also the winner of this game has won the district the last three years. This year would look to be another good matchup as both teams came in evenly matched with big game experience at the quarterback position. The captain for the Giants would be senior tight end Logan Brown.

I usually don’t complain a lot. When I do I get caught in some dilemma that I can’t talk my way out. You think I would learn my lesson, but I’m still in the learning curve.

It was a long week, and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I had a busy schedule. She went her way, I went my way and the Spousal Twain only meets after the week’s work is done.

Some weeks are better than others, but some aren’t. And I was having a rather dismal week with a few things going wrong. For one, my vehicle needed to go to the garage to be fixed.

Football is finally back as the Jena Giants traveled to Vidalia this past Friday to take on the Vikings in a scrimmage. It has been a long wait for the team but their patience finally paid off when the LHSAA announced that there would be an 8 week regular season starting this Friday night.

The Giants were able to play a scrimmage this past Friday in order to fine tune and find out what needs to be worked on before the first official game. The Giants played very well as they scored 5 times and did not allow the Vikings to score at all.

Senior quarterback Jordan Jackson played well as he had numerous long runs and com-pleted passes to 4 different receivers including new tight end senior Logan Brown. Running backs Brennan Deville and Brandon Williams had a couple of long runs.

Army Intelligence

It was the time of the Korean War, and Carl knew that if he didn’t sign up for the military, he would be drafted. If he signed up, he would have two advantages. First, he would have a say in what branch of the military he went in to, and second, he could become an officer. He chose the army.
