In the dog days of the summer, the cities of Pine Bluff and White Hall will be treated to a high quality level of baseball. The 2016 13-15 year-old Southwest Regional Tournament is set to begin on July 21 with an opening banquet, and the first game is scheduled to be played on July 22.

The ‘simplicity’ of getting fit

I’ve NEVER heard anyone say “You know, I’d like a really pretty house, but I don’t care if it has a refrigerator or bathrooms”. But I hear “I just want bigger arms” or “I only want to work on my waist” quite frequently. From a fitness professional’s perspective, they mean virtually the same thing.

Our Father’s Love

Golden Lions poised to make run at SWAC championship

The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff head baseball coach Carlos James is proud of his guys for winning their third consecutive Western Division championship, but they feel as if they haven’t gained the respect they deserve. Even after all that winning, the SWAC coaches still only selected one Golden Lion baseball player to the post season all-conference teams.

The Golden Lions of the diamond finsih the regular with solid victory

Finishing the regular season off strongly is always the objective when heading into the post season. It’s also always better to send your seniors out with a win on senior day instead of a loss.

Heart surgery patient may be depressed

Q. My husband had heart by-pass surgery two months ago and appears to be recovering well physically. However, he’s lost interest in most of his usual activities and complains frequently about being tired and depressed, and that is not improving at all. Could his depression be related to his heart surgery?

Dissapointing loss for Pine Bluff brings season to an end

Just as in basketball, the Pine Bluff High Zebras baseball team opened up the 2016 6A state tournament squaring off against the Mountain Home Blue Bombers. However, this time around the Bombers were the ones who were celebrating in the end. Mountain Home ended Pine Bluff’s hopes of a 6A title run by defeating the Zebras by a final score of 8-6.
