Daily Tidbit for Wednesday: It’s Happy Birthday time for Meriam Matthews, Scott Treadway, and Will Treadway! Happy Birthday Will, Scott and Meriam!

It was a good gathering for the Bulldog faithful yesterday as they welcomed Assistant Coach Deshae Townsend to speak before the local folks. The fact that there was only one table with empty seats spoke highly of the local alumni’s desire to hear more from their Alma Mater. Coach Townsend, as seen in the photo below, was obviously at ease as he fielded questions from the crowd about next year’s football squad.



In the photo below, Shanna Taylor and Jimmy Walker, Jr. handle the ticket sales at the reception table while Chapter President Richard Noe and old feller Sandy Stillions strike a pose!




The opening night of Dixie Youth Baseball was interesting to say the least. First, the umpire got called to Senatobia for a State Playoff game and then his replacement umps got tied up at a West Tallahatchie game in Webb. Some Coaches stepped in and did a yeoman’s job of getting the opening game started almost an hour late!

Dalton Furniture took the first game away from Fullilove Farms. And then Fullilove Farms redeemed themselves in the second game against First South 3-5. We got home around 10:30!

From Coahoma Community College: It is time for Cheerleading Tryouts and Clinics at CCC. Read about how to get in on the action on the Sports Page. Click Here. The article says that they will hand out applications on May 1, or you can get them on the CCC website by Clicking Here. And if you cannot find the application packet there, check back here this afternoon and we will have them posted on a special page just for you for convenience.

And today’s blog is short because we were at the ball park so late!   Yeah, that’s right, we are gonna blame it on the kids!   lol

The Police Report was posted late yesterday because we received it late. The big news is that our local men and women in blue have removed two more alleged burglars from our streets. Way to go C.P.D.!

Sorry, but this is another short blog. Tomorrow we go out to look for some things that are happening that you have not told us about!

Daily Tidbit for Friday: The only Birthday in our files for today is John Jones! Happy birthday John!

Tomorrow brings Birthday celebrations for Jim Johns! (Two J.J.s in a row!) You all might know Jim better as Jimmy Johns who grew up on Anderson Boulevard.  Happy Birthday Jimmy!

And we only have one Birthday listed for Sunday as well! On that special day Reine Hinman Overton will turn 30 for the second time (Do the math folks!). Happy Birthday Reine! (BTW, her brother told us to tell you her age! Don’t ya just luv brothers?  lol)

On the Events Calendar for today: Good Friday services are taking place @ First United Methodist Church today. You can see the schedule on the Musings Page, Click Here.

Also happening today is Fridays After 5, Sidewalk Sounds with Sean “Bad” Apple. For times and location, Click Here.

In case you have not been reading the Police Reports, it seems the local trailer thieves are back at work. From friends who have had their trailers stolen, we can tell you that these thieves make several passes by the intended target before they grab it. If you see someone in a pickup truck circling your block several times, you might want to call the Clarksdale Police Department and report what you have seen. You just might save a neighbor (or yourself) a lot of money and anguish!

Want to know just how bad the local rains have been this year? Coahoma County High School Baseball Coach Davey Lee Farris, Jr. was heard lamenting that he had 17 games scheduled for his Red Panther baseball team this year. Due to the rains, he has managed to play only 7 so far and next week is the last week they can play in pre-tournament action. He also stated that his team hasn’t had much time to practice this year either due to the rain and mud.

Hey, Coach, chin up. Just remember the Chicago Cub cheer: Just wait till next year!

Coahoma Community College has a new Coaching staff for the Tigers football team. Head Coach Karl Morgan has assembled his staff and is ready to get started on next year’s campaign.  Click Here to read the article and get a look at the new CCC Tiger Football Staff on the Sports Page.
