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.

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

They have set an earlier time for today’s Cat Fish Lunch with M.S.U. Assistant Coach Deshea Townsend. The doors will be open at 11:30. I don’t know if there are any tickets left or not, but you can call Richard Noe at (662)645-4040 or Bradley Lunceford (662)902-9843. If any are available, they are $20 each.

Summer league baseball starts tonight!

The Coahoma County Supervisors will not meet this week because of an out-of-town meeting. Their next meeting will take place on May 5th. And the Mayor and Commissioners meet next Monday.

There is a flyer on the Musings Page that tells about a Grief Support Group. If you have lost a loved one or you know someone who has, you might want to read this flyer and go to their next meeting. The next meeting is set for Thursday May 8th. Click Here for the flyer.

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!
