Daily Tidbit for Thursday: What a day! Tootie Joiner, Richard “I’m a Bulldog” Noe and Celeste “Sings like an Angel” Zepponi all turn another year younger. Well, maybe not Tootie. She is still in that age group where they actually wish they were a little older! Happy Birthday Celeste, Richard and Tootie!

We were told Tuesday night that our friend Marvin Carraway has been in the hospital for around three weeks now. Then, John Carraway calls us yesterday and tells us that Marvin was transferred to the I.C.U. unit yesterday afternoon.  We understand that all of this has to do with his blood pressure and blood density. However, whatever the cause, Marvin could use your prayers and thoughts to help him get over this and come back home. And, B.T.W., he is in Baptist East.

A while back, we said that there were some new things on the horizon for Well, some things are about to happen and happen fairly quickly. Tune in tomorrow for a BIG announcement.

Another new thing is that we heard you requesting to have the Summer Baseball Schedules posted, so here they are: Click Here for this Summer’s Schedules. You can also find a link in the Top Menu under the heading of Sportsman. Remember, DO NOT click on Sportsman, just put your cursor on the word and a drop-down menu will appear. Then, click on Baseball.

Tonight is the Lee Academy Powder Puff football game. This is an annual event that is as funny as it is fun! Wait until you see the “Cheerleaders” lol

Also tonight is the Spring Initiative Potluck Supper. Everybody is invited and it will be held @ First united Methodist Church at 405 East Second Street. Come on down and meet Anja, Bianca and the rest of the Spring Initiative team.

John McKellar, CHS Class of 1964, sent us the photo below with a request for our readers to help identify the players. The photo is of the 1934 Mississippi State Champion Clarksdale High School Wildcats. The only person he can identify is his uncle #30, Irby Ellis, father of Joe Ellis in Cleveland. Please get out your specs and take a look or ask your parents and grandparents who these other players are and send us the info so that we can forward it to him.

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
