B-52 bomber removed from ‘boneyard’ to return to service TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A B-52H bomber built in the early 1960s and put into retirement in an U.S. Air Force “boneyard” in the Arizona desert over 10 years ago is returning to service. A crew on Tuesday flew the plane nicknamed “Wise Guy” to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana from Tucson where it had been in a sprawling aircraft storage area at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Officials said it was the bomber’s first flight since 2008 and only the second time that a B-52H has taken from the storage area and returned to service. It took months of work to make the bomber airworthy again, and additional restoration work is required to put it back in service. The bomber will replace one destroyed in a 2016 fire at a base in Guam.

Second Front GOVERNMENT

Senate confirms Wendy Vitter as US judge in Louisiana WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate confirmed Louisiana lawyer Wendy Vitter as a federal judge Thursday, overcoming opposition from Democrats who criticized her anti-abortion stance and accused her of trying to hide her record on the issue. Maine Sen. Susan Collins was the only Republican to oppose Vitter’s nomination, which was approved 52-45. A former prosecutor, Vitter is general counsel for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and an outspoken abortion opponent. Democrats said Vitter nonetheless failed to disclose hundreds of past statements opposing abortion, including a claim at a political rally that Planned Parenthood is responsible for killing 150,000 women a year. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., called the remark careless, reckless and wrong, and said it showed “incredibly poor judgment for somebody who is being considered for a lifetime judicial appointment.” Vitter’s remarks, and other comments criticizing abortion, amounted to “the fearmongering of an activist who is entirely un-

fit for the federal bench,” Murray said. She and other Democrats said the views of Vitter and other judicial nominees on abortion were increasingly important because of a strict abortion ban signed into law this week in Alabama. “That legislation is nothing short of an attack on women, and it is part of a larger effort we are seeing today around the country to take away the constitutional right of women to safe, legal abortion and allowing politicians to make decisions for women about their bodies, their health and their lives,” Murray said. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defended Vitter, saying her “impressive legal career includes experience in private practice and a decade in the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office, where she handled more than 100 felony jury trials.” Vitter, who is married to former Sen. David Vitter, R-La., drew widespread opposition from Democrats last year when she refused to say whether she believed the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark 1954 desegregation ruling in

Brown v. Board of Education was correctly decided. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who asked Vitter about the Brown case, said “the iconic ruling” by the Supreme Court “is special even among those well-established decisions. Anyone who fails to endorse such a sacrosanct decision is clearly out of the legal and societal mainstream and unworthy of confirmation.” In a statement Thursday, Collins said Vitter’s remarks on the Brown case and comments “advancing discredited assertions about the impact of contraception and abortion on the incidence of cancer and domestic violence” led her to conclude that Vitter is “not well-suited to serve on the federal bench.” Collins, who is up for reelection in 2020, said her decision was not based on Vitter’s personal views on abortion, but on whether she could put aside her personal views, especially since Vitter has encouraged doctors to circulate a pamphlet that linked contraception and abortion to cancer and an increased risk of domestic violence. The claims have been widely discredited.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP

The Daily Comet on prisoners getting implants to fight opioid addiction Louisiana’s prisoners are leading the way in testing a new treatment for opioid addiction. BioCorRx has offered the state prison system 10 surgical implants, which are still in the testing phase. According to prison officials, the treatment lasts three or four months, relieving some of the symptoms of addicts and leading to a more likely outcome of recovery without recidivism or overdoses. The current treatment of injections is much more expensive and lasts only one month. This seems to be a promising process that could make recovery more attainable. The one concern here is that it is being tested on prisoners before it has been cleared for use by federal health officials. The drug the implant delivers has been an effective treatment, but the implant is still being tested. However, the program is being offered only to prisoners

who volunteer for it as they prepare to re-enter society after their sentences. As long as it is completely voluntary, these prisoners might find long-lasting relief from the symptoms that could otherwise pave the way back into addiction and crime. Some prisoner advocates have expressed concern that the precedent could make other prisoners more vulnerable to the use of unapproved medical devices. But this is what looks like a promising solution to a problem that has afflicted our criminal justice system for years: the ability of released former prisoners to beat the addictions that all too often paved their way into jail in the first place. The other promising aspect of the program is that the state is emphasizing treatment over punishment. Yes, there is a recognition that these prisoners,

like all others, have to serve their sentences. But there is also a recognition that there were issues that could have exacerbated these people’s legal problems and that treating those issues will be a key part of keeping them out of jail in the future. “Something’s working,” said Dr. Susan Tucker, a clinical psychologist in Bossier Parish. “It is making a difference. It is effective. For the correctional population who are leaving us and are clean, it really is the perfect drug to use. This one cannot be abused.” There are legitimate concerns about conducting medical testing on prisoners, but this looks like a case where those who are open to the treatment can get real benefits from it.

INSPIRATION

Writing down the legacy of our lives It’s not what happens to us but how we can work it into the legacy of our lives! We all have a story to tell if we dare to share -- to go apart -- to delve into the deepest recesses of our minds. Bill Moyers, longtime president of Public Broadcasting, said “unless the poet tells it like it is, he or she will never leave their legacy behind.” It has been said that Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of The SARAH Little House On The HUDSON-PIERCE Prairie series, was believed to have been more interested in leaving her story behind rather than the money she might make from the stories she wrote. Erma Bombeck, the late best selling author and syndicated columnist said “It’s not the money that you make but knowing

your words reach people you will never meet.” I never met Erma personally yet she forever touched my life helping me to achieve more than I could have ever achieved without her encouragement when she dedicated a column to me on February 26, 1986 after I sent her a copy of a $5 check that I received for a poem that I wrote. That column went out in over 900 newspapers across the country and keeps me going long after she died in 1996. She knew what she was doing. We all need a little encouragement. We can’t make it alone nor would we want to. The late Zig Ziglar, best selling author and motivational speaker, said “if you will help enough other people get what they want you can have everything you want.” I have had so many people encourage me that if I were to start naming names I would surely offend someone. It takes courage, of being open, to finally

find your voice but before we do we have to speak from the heart. It’s not easy being transparent because there are just so many things we would rather keep secret. We have to protect ourselves because we have all committed enough sins to surely condemn us but we need to strive for honesty in our writing. I encourage you to write because it has been my form of therapy while in the orphanage and when I was recovering from a nervous breakdown in 1981. Life isn’t easy but our struggles makes us who we are. All it takes is picking up a pen and jotting down a sentence each day. The sentences multiply into pages easing the pain of what you are going through. I hope my words have encouraged you to write. The joy I feel comes from knowing God is the one who has pulled me out of the ditches and through all the tight places in my life!

PREP FOOTBALL

Santelices to lead Lakeside football

Josh Beavers

Special to the Press-Herald Mike Santelices, the longtime Minden High assistant coach and math teacher, has been named the new head football coach at Lakeside. Santelices, 42, was hired Thursday afternoon by Lakeside Principal Denny Finley. “I went into the process looking for a coach that would take players where they cannot take themselves,” Finley said. “Someone that would be around for years to come and invest in their lives. His dedication to the parish could not go unnoticed in the hiring process. He left no doubt that he would be around for years and that is what our kids need.”

Santelices follows former head coach Jason McClendon who took a position at North Desoto two weeks ago. “It just feels like everything lined up perfectly for this to happen for me and my family,” Santelices said. “I am truly excited and feel blessed to have this job. The second I saw the blip on the screen [the position] I said ‘I want it.’” In his 18 years as a football coach, Santelices has coached every position except linebacker. He served as offensive coordinator under head coach Randy Peters, and has most recently worked as offensive line coach with coach Spencer Heard. In all that time as a coach

Glenbrook’s DJ Carter (20) runs for touchdown in the first score of the game as the Apaches held an inter-squad scrimmage on Thursday afternoon to finish out spring practices.

JJ Marshall

jjmarshall@press-herald.com Last year, Glenbrook couldn’t hold an inter-squad scrimmage. They didn’t have enough players to field two teams. Even if they wanted to, head coach Drew Maddox wouldn’t have been involved as he was only hired at the tail end of the summer right as school started. Despite losing six seniors, Maddox has the program looking up, and they held

a scrimmage on Thursday afternoon to show the work they have been putting in. Students lined the Glenbrook football stadium as the red team and blue team squared off. “Man, we are going to be a whole lot better than last year,” Maddox said. Simply being able to field enough players to have a scrimmage is something Maddox will cherish as Glenbrook struggled all last season to keep players fresh. “We didn’t even have the numbers to do that last year,”

Maddox said. “So we have 28 out there right now.” In 2018, the Apaches saw all of their most talented players forced to play offense and defense, which limited their ability to play to their potential. In the game, Maddox was impressed with some of his younger players. “DJ Carter and Maddox Mandino did really well,” he said. “Some younger guys came in and really stepped up.” Carter scored the first touchdown of the game as

the blue team took the lead on his 20-yard rushing score. It had the feel of a growing program and one that, at this level, should no longer have to struggle to field enough numbers for a team. The Apaches hired offensive coordinator David Feaster as the new athletic director as well, directly connecting the football program to the athletic department. This program has a lot to look forward to as they enter the summer, and the spring game on Thursday was one step forward.

Glenbrook named David Feaster as the new athletic director on Thursday. (Minden, LA) – Veteran coach and athletic administrator David Feaster was tabbed by Glenbrook’s administration on Thursday to lead its athletic department. No stranger to North Louisiana athletics, Feaster brings a wealth of experience as a teacher, coach, and athletic director to the table as he seeks to continue the resurgence of the Apache athletic program. Coach Feaster just finished his first year at the Minden private school in the role of offensive coordinator for the Apache football team and teaches several math classes. His extensive experience includes a successful stint at Minden High as well as at Parkway High in Bossier City. He has served as athletic director at four different schools and is looking

forward to the additional responsibility at Glenbrook. “There are many great things going on in Apache nation,” said Feaster. “I am eager to come alongside all of our coaches to see how I can support them.” Feaster will replace Coach Gary Harris who served in that capacity the previous two years. “Coach Harris did some great things for Glenbrook. He was instrumental in bringing Coach Drew Maddox and myself in to the program.” “Having worked with Coach Feaster this school year, I know that he has the strong work ethic and organizational skills necessary to be successful as Glenbrook’s athletic director,” remarked Glenbrook Headmaster Darden Gladney. “It is also evident that he has embraced the Apache Spirit.”

NEW ORLEANS, La. | Bryan Delgado fanned eight over seven-plus innings, but the Grambling State University baseball team could not hold on to a late-one run lead as the Tigers fall into the eliminate bracket with a 5-3 loss to Alabama State on Thursday afternoon at Wesley Barrow Stadium. Grambling State (25-24), the West No. 2 seed, falls into the elimination bracket and will meet Prairie View A&M, the West No. 4 seed, at 9 a.m. on Friday. Alabama State (2724), the East top seed, continues winner’s bracket play and will face either Grambling State or PVAMU at 3 p.m. How It Happened Grambling State struck first in the opening inning as Isaiah Torres was hit by a pitch to begin the game and stole second. He came across to score on a two-out double by Jahmoi Percival to give the Tigers a quick 1-0 lead. Alabama State battled back and grabbed a 2-1 advantage with two runs on three hits in

Senior RHP Matt Miller shut out FIU over a career-best 8.2 innings pitched in Tech’s Thursday night 3-0 triumph . MIAMI – In his final regular season start as a Bulldog, Louisiana Tech senior captain Matt Miller was nothing short of brilliant, shutting out FIU, 3-0, in a five-hit, 8.2 inning, pitching performance from FIU Baseball Stadium on Thursday evening. The Bulldogs (33-21, 16-12 C-USA) received one of the best career starts from their senior right-hander, who at one point, retired 12 consecutive batters. Miller (6-1) struck out six and walked two, while Tech played solid defense behind him, turning a pair of crucial double plays on the evening. “What can you say about Matt Miller? He was outstanding for us tonight,” head coach Lane Burroughs remarked. “He was spinning the baseball so well and kept it down in the zone all night. He was as good as I’ve seen him in a long time. Wish he could’ve gotten that last out, but we needed a punchout there late, and Braxton (Smith) got the job done. Their guy was going to get his strikeouts – we needed to grind out at-bats and get his pitch count up, and that’s exactly what we did. I’m extremely proud of our hitters for their approach tonight.” The Auora, Illinois, native also set a new career high in

innings pitched, never pitching past eight through his first two-plus seasons in the Red and Blue. With his six punchouts, Miller now has 96 on the season – the most in a single season by a Bulldog pitcher since 2007 (Luke Burnett -115). Miller ran into a bit of trouble in the bottom of the ninth, as FIU (22-31, 11-17 C-USA) brought the tying run to the plate in cleanup man Jose Garcia. Tech made the call to the pen in senior closer Braxton Smith, who needed just three pitches to dispatch of Garcia via a swinging strikeout, while picking up his 10th save of the year. Meanwhile, the Tech offense did just enough against the C-USA strikeout leader in Logan Allen. The southpaw racked up 10 punchouts, while walking just one, but some timely hits and solid base running allowed the Bulldogs to plate three earned runs off the 2018 Freshman All-American. The Bulldogs struck for the first run of the game in the top of the third. Designated hitter Shelton Wallace picked up where he left off against Mississippi State on Tuesday, and led off the inning with a double to dead center. Wallace then moved to third on

a flyout to right from Chris Clayton, and then scored on Taylor Young sacrifice fly to center. Both starting pitchers worked through the fourth and fifth innings, relatively unscathed before Tech added to its lead in the sixth. A leadoff walk from Clayton jumpstarted the inning, and with the Tech backstop at second after a Young sac bunt, Hunter Wells lashed an RBI single back up the middle, plating Clayton for the game’s second run. Two batters later, now with two outs, cleanup man Tanner Huddleston lofted a shallow fly ball to right center. Wells, who was taking off with the pitch hustled and scored all the way from first on the bloop RBI single, giving Tech a 3-0 lead. Allen picked up the loss, falling to 4-6 on the year after allowing three runs (all earned) on four hits, while striking out 10 and walking just one. The Bulldogs will look to clinch their second consecutive league series tomorrow evening with first pitch set for 5 p.m. CT. Left-hander David Leal will make the start for Tech, coming off back-toback complete games, while FIU will counter with righthander Nick MacDonald.

New Lakeside football coach Mike Santelices and his family. Continued from Page 6

in Webster Parish, Santelices has learned the importance of community and forming deep, meaningful connections inside and outside the school grounds. “Ultimately it’s about much more than football,” he said. “It’s about helping create productive and responsible young men. It’s about helping these young men grow up and become good husbands and fathers - good people.” As far as football philosophy, Santelices said personnel often will dictate scheme. He ideally would like to run a 3-4 defense because of its versatility and the ability it provides to have faster players all over the field. As for offense, he said he prefers balance as it allows a team the ability to keep the opponent guessing. Whereas some teams are pass-heavy or run-heavy, Santelices said it is important to find the weakness in a defense and attack that soft spot.

One thing is for certain, Santelices said he has no designs on leaving Lakeside. He added with a grin “short of an LSU [or some other college powerhouse] calling with a multi-million dollar deal.” “My family is here, and my children are going to school here,” he continued. “There is no one, no other school, that could call me and get me to move.” His wife, Jennifer, is also a longtime Webster Parish educator who now works as a Content Coach for the parish. They have three children, two boys and a girl, ranging in age from 11 to 3.It is that commitment to school and community that Santelices said he will immediately begin stressing as he meets with current and prospective players. “Coach McClendon started so many good things here, and I can’t wait to continue to build on the foundation that he laid.” One of his first steps will be to meet with players. He stressed the importance of

COURTESY PHOTO

building relationships with the young men as some may be apprehensive of a new coach. “That’s perfectly natural,” he said. “I’m going to see them, let them know who I am and what kind of person I am. And we will build.” In the classroom, Santelices is a math teacher who has taught math as high as Algebra II. “The classroom is the most important thing at a school,” he said. “That should be able to go without saying. You have to be able to do in there [class] before out there [sports].” He has a bachelors degree from Southern Arkansas University. And perhaps his most important characteristic is his positive attitude. Lakeside is a dream job for him, one that he said he will be happy to go to every morning. It is that positivity, commitment to a long future, and knowledge he has found “his home” that will hopefully translate to many more wins on the football field and higher test scores in the classroom.

LA Tech opens NCAA Regionals Friday versus #15 Texas Tech

RUSTON, La. – Louisiana Tech returns to the diamond once again on Friday when the Lady Techsters open play in the 2019 NCAA Tournament opposite No. 15 Texas Tech in the Baton Rouge Regional. First pitch is slated for 2 p.m. CT at LSU’s Tiger Park in Baton Rouge. Following Friday’s game, the Lady Techsters will face either Monmouth or No. 10 LSU on Saturday, May 18. All games will be streamed live on ESPN3 and through the Watch ESPN app (subscribers only) with Matt Schumacker (PxP) and Leigh Dakich (Analysis) calling all the action from Tiger Park. Fans can tune in to the radio broadcast on the LA Tech Sports Network on KNBB 97.7 FM with Malcolm Butler on the call. Louisiana Tech is making its 11th NCAA appearance in the program’s history and will be facing a 39-14 Texas Tech

team, who enters the regional as the No. 2 seed. The Lady Techsters enter the contest as a 3-seed with a 44-14 overall mark and fresh off capturing their second Conference USA Tournament Championship in the last three years. LA Tech is 13-15 all-time in NCAA Tournament play, while The Red Raiders are 1010 when playing in the NCAA Tournament and 2-3 in tournament openers. The Lady Techsters and Red Raiders have squared off twice before with the series tied 1-1. Both previous meetings between Louisiana Tech and Texas Tech came in the early 1980s. Following the devastating F3 tornado that tore through Louisiana Tech’s campus and athletic facilities (including softball’s home stadium), the Lady Techsters have been on a tear of their own. Since the tornado struck, LA Tech

has put together an 8-1 record (currently on a 5-game win streak), while the team is out-scoring opponents 52-14 in that stretch. In the circle, LA Tech pitchers have posted an impressive 1.21 ERA and held opponents to a .209 average at the dish in the last nine games. The Red Raiders finished the Big 12 Conference season with an 8-10 record. They posted conference series wins over Iowa State, Baylor and Kansas and took one game away from the Texas Longhorns. Finishing fourth in the league, the team tied head coach Adrian Gregory’s highest finish since occupying the No. 4 spot in 2015. In addition to the ESPN3 stream and radio broadcast, live stats will also be available for every game this weekend by accessing the link on the softball schedule page on LATechSports.com.
