Golden Lions picked to finish fifth in the Western Division

Recently, the Southwestern Athletic Conference released its 2016 pre-season predictions, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Golden Lions didn’t fare well. Coming off of one of the worst seasons in Head Coach Monte Coleman’s tenure (2-9,1-8) the Golen Lions were picked to finish fifth in the Western Division.

Dishonoring our dutiful shepherds

In the wake of the Pine Bluff City Council’s decision to revoke any commendations for officers who participated in the standoff and justified killing of Monroe Isadore, some perspective is warranted. Despite an amazing transformation over the last three years, many people believe the PBPD is biased and broken. This decision is emblematic of those feelings.

When cops kill, and when cops die

Most interactions between American police and citizens are routine, civil and no worse than briefly unpleasant for those involved. But among some cops and some populations, the relationship is fraught with chronic distrust and fear. The result is an intractably toxic climate that spawns deadly consequences.

The promise of rest remains

“Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it…” (Hebrews 4:1-10).

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. That lone player is Syler Henson, who won relief pitcher of the year. UAPB will enter the 2016 SWAC Baseball Tournament with something to prove.

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. The 2015-2016 Western Division champion UAPB Golden Lions did just that by knocking off the Alcorn State Braves in the regular season finale at the Torii Hunter Complex by a final score of 15-6.

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?
