of the competition.

With two half court games going on either end of the floor,
game psychology was paramount.

Buckholts Jr Class Fish Fry

The Junior class of Buckholts High School held a fish fry fund raiser Saturday, May 18th, at the SPJST Lodge. Lots of local folks provided, cooked and served.

"I'm sorry, Officer. I was just trying to get the Junior Class
fish fry before the creeks on the way home flooded."
I really hope Carlos didn't fall for that driver's excuse.
The secret to a good fish fry is barnyard fresh tripe
 in the bottom of the fry basket.

Why is my farm raised catfish stock falling on a weekend?

No! We are NOT! Please read the sign again.

I hate losing to myself at Tic-Tac-Toe!

If the President tweets one more time today . . .
