A 37-year-old Eunice man is accused of smacking his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. Kenneth Ray Guillory, 37, of 1621 West Vine, Eunice, was arrested by Eunice police Wednesday on charges of simple battery and kidnapping. On Feb. 14 -- Valentine’s Day -- Guillory attacked his “dating partner,” Police Chief Randy Fontenot said.
The Eunice High Bobcats dominated the early going, but the St. Edmund Blue Jays dominated the late going to earn a 6-5 victory Tuesday night at North Park. The Bobcats jumped to an early lead with a three-run first inning off Jays’ starter Drew Brown. With one out, Logan Manuel singled and stole second base.
The rains washed away St. Edmund’s scheduled softball season opener, but it could not dampen the enthusiasm present at Monday’s dedication of the new Lady Jay Field. Msgr. Robert Romero reminded the team that athletic competition allows them to develop their talents and skills as well as teaching discipline and life lessons.
