Behind The Scoreboard
New coach of Saints has tough job
We haven’t heard many resounding booms from the coaching carousel in the NFL after the most recent season.
Tournament benefits Shaw family
A benefit softball tournament for Morgan Shaw and her family will be held Saturday, Aug. 26, on the Town of Potts Camp fields.
“The dates could expand, depending on the amount of interest,” said Kevin Harris, one of the coordinators of the tournament, along with Steve Henderson.
Morgan Shaw, age 6, is a student at Mary Reid School in Potts Camp.
The tournament is open to adult teams – men’s, women’s and co-ed. Entry fee is $150 per team.
Harris and Henderson are also looking for volunteers to assist with umpiring, preparing the fields and concessions.
All proceeds from the tournament will go the Shaw family.
“We want everyone to come and have fun and fellowship and play the games for a good cause,” Harris said.
To enter a team or for more information on the benefit tournament, call Henderson at 252-1491 (work), 544-2898 (cell) or 333-7076 (home).

Ban issued on kite tubing
The US Army Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District, has issued a temporary ban on kite tubing on all waters under district jurisdiction in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
District Commander Colonel Anthony Vesay implemented the ban, which will remain in effect until the Corps completes ongoing development of a national policy on this activity. The ban could become permanent.
The temporary ban affects Lakes Sardis, Enid, Arkabutla, and Grenada (Mississippi).
Kite tubing is a new form of extreme water sport that emerged this year. Reports and news accounts from multiple states cited injuries and at least two deaths resulting from this new activity.
