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.

LaSalle Lady Tigers win 2017 Class 1A State Championship

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Lady Tigers showed up at the 2017 Fastpitch 96 Tournament with one thing on their minds: leaving with a State Championship. That goal came to pass with a resounding BOOM on Saturday night as the Lady Tigers fought South Cameron, Oak Grove, and even Mother Nature to bring home the title.

The unbelievable trip began Wednesday at noon, as the Lady Tigers boarded the bus for Sulphur. The students and faculty were lining the sidewalk cheering on the girls as they departed the school. There was a scheduled practice time later that afternoon in Sulphur and the girls did not want to miss a chance to practice on the fields where the battle would take place.
