I agree with J.R. Ball on most of his points, other than now is not the time to incorporate St. George.
He says we need to come together as a community to solve the problems that are plaguing the middle class of EBR.

I work in public relations. I think the EBR Schools Director of Communications job should pay somewhere between $60k and $70k, depending on the experience of the person hired.
The problem with a $98k salary for the position is that it is an inflated salary used to draw in an out of stater to do ...

I used to race the mile in high school, so I can offer some perspective here.
Under 4 minutes = superhuman.
4:20 and below = good enough to win the state championship in high school, depending on your class.
4:40 and below = Good enough to place and possibly win district, depending on the...

For such a run oriented team, their fans sure seen to have no opinion on our running game, which will probably make up 70 percent of our offense on Jan. 1.
That will be the difference. Mark it down. ...

LSU fans are always quick to blame the coaches for a loss because they view the players as their heroes and saints. Bottom line on t...

I liked the Hobbit, but one of my complaints about Jackson is that he takes some of his action scenes just a little too far, and overdoes the CGI on them... to the point of defying basic laws of physics and such.

They lost a game to Ole Miss, which should not have happened. I will give you that.
They lost as expected to Alabama.

Nah. Even when LSU blows out a team, they don't maximize points.
I think this game will be similar to most years. Arky will play better than expected, and it will be a kind of sloppy 28-17 type win for LSU.
