  • Kevin Reese mug.jpg Outdoors: Kevin Reese — Tactical hunting: Sir, Yes Sir!

    My pop once told me I might fit into my dress blues if I used bungee cords; the truth hurts. Looking at me it’s hard to believe I spent eight years in the Marines.
    In all honestly, I’m not that bad off… I’m just not that well off; I could stand a few months of nonstop treadmill work.
    Beyond reminiscing about my life as a Marine and wishing I still looked the part, I miss many aspects of active duty life – chief among them being camaraderie and my trusty M-16 A2 Service Rifle.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: You never know who might be offended by a team mascot

    The U.S. Patent office has voided the Washington Redskins’ trademark on the name Redskins.
    Obviously, Congress is an outdated, useless institution since they seem to be bypassed every other day.
    The patent office tried this in 1999, but the Washington entry in the NFL sued in federal court and won. They expect to do so again.
    However, if the patent office action is upheld, then all sorts of team mascots could be in danger. Lots of them could be offensive to someone.

  • AOY main Green Machine: Kerens’ Betts, Baxter prove to be extraordinary

    They share so much — desire and drive and the love of sports, green and white jerseys, a passion to succeed, pride in their school, their town and the teams they play for — even their numbers, 23 and 24, run in sequence for Kerens' Nate Betts and Breanna Baxter, who have known each other their entire lives. And now they share this: Betts and Baxter are the Community National Bank and Trust All-Golden Circle Athletes of the Year.

  • Frankie.jpg Challenger League Series: A Joyous Day

    The smiles.
    That's what gets you.
    And it gets you every time.
    If you could take a picture of joy — pure, honest, sweet joy — it would be here on the Kerens softball field every June when the Central Texas Challenger League Series takes place.

  • 7-0n-7 Watts.jpg CHS Football: Tigers have tough day in 7-on-7 round robin

    It's an ambitious schedule, one that promises to push Corsicana's Tigers, who find themselves playing DeSoto, Dallas Carter and Waxahachie in 7-on-7 football this summer.
    On Tuesday, the Tigers hosted the other three teams in a round robin set of three 30-minute games, and had trouble with DeSoto, one of the best Class 6A programs in Texas, and Dallas Carter, a powerhouse in 5A, before battling in a tough 2-1 loss to 5A rival Waxahachie.
    DeSoto won 5-1 and Carter beat the Tigers 5-2 at Tiger Stadium, where Corsicana Coach Steve Hoffman liked some of the things he saw but was upset with the way his kids competed.
