Eunice News article brings back memories for a Bobcat

Dear Editor,
Your article in The Eunice News, “Memories of Bobcat Field big wins,” brings back memories of myself attending most of these games that were played and from one of my storerooms I came out with three large tote boxes of memories collected through the years.
One morning, I decided to bring all the tote boxes to the Eunice Museum, which was well received. It included some of the same games that are included in the newspaper article. The staff at the Eunice Museum put the items in a green three-ring binder (Bobcats) and a blue binder for the Blue Jays.

For too long our networks have left some of our fellow citizens out, and its time that we get to work to fix this gap.

Kids, pedal those pandemic blues away

Here’s one good thing about the COVID-19 pandemic: Bike sales are booming. I hope that means kids will begin riding in big numbers again.
There was a big bike-sales boom in the early 1970s, too — the result of millions of baby boom kids, like me, riding our bikes from dawn until dusk.
From its inception in the 1800s, the bicycle had been produced mostly for adults. In the 1900s, bikes offered urban working-class folks an inexpensive way to get to and from work. Sales were brisk into the early 1900s.

What’s happening with nation’s law enforcement officers

I hope those who are compassionate about the tragic killing of a black person by an idiot, cop (who, by the way, should have been dismissed long ago) are as passionate with what is happening to law enforcement people around the country by the peaceful demonstrators.
In the last 96 hours...
