Louisiana governor candidates lodge blows in final debate BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ two major Republican opponents took their most direct swipes at each other Wednesday even as they struck at the Democratic incumbent in their final TV debate before the primary election. While Edwards re- MELINDA mains in the lead, DESLATTE polls ahead of the Saturday election show a tightening contest between U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone for the second-place spot. The GOP challengers accused each other of lying and distortions, tangling as much among themselves as they did with the governor they’re trying to unseat.

All three candidates in the Shreveport debate got to ask each other questions, a format that led to more confrontations. Edwards hammered GOP businessman Eddie Rispone as one of former Gov. Bobby Jindal’s chief supporters, seeking to tie Rispone to the ex-governor blamed for nearly a decade of budget problems. Abraham, a third-term congressman and doctor from rural northeast Louisiana, accused Rispone of lying about Abraham’s congressional record and panned Edwards as a tax-raising leader out of step with his own state. Rispone, owner of an indus-

trial contracting company from Baton Rouge, hit Edwards for supporting Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election and criticized Abraham as reneging on a promise to voters to donate all of his congressional salary to charity. Abraham responded that he donated his salary and continues to do so, contradicting previous statements from his own spokesman and prompting skepticism from Rispone. In Louisiana, all candidates regardless of party run against each other on the ballot. Not only are the Republicans trying to keep Edwards below 50% to force a November runoff, they are battling each other to determine which one would reach the head-to-head matchup against Edwards.

Neither Abraham nor Rispone is the clear frontrunner among Republicans, even though Rispone, who is largely self-financing his campaign, has spent five times as much on his campaign as Abraham. National Republicans have targeted Edwards, the Deep South’s only Democratic governor, for ouster, with President Donald Trump planning an

anti-Edwards rally on Friday in Lake Charles.

Wednesday’s debate, hosted by Gray Television, aired on its stations around Louisiana. Re-

Mt. Zion CME to Host guest Speaker Exhorter Calesa Leach The local church Lay Observance will be held Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 11AM at the Mt. Zion CME Church . The speaker will be Exhorter Calesa Leach of Duluth, Georgia. She’s a graduate of the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Georgia with a Masters of Arts in Christian Education degree. All are invited to share in this program of fellowship. Born in East Hartford, CT, Calesa is the eldest child of John D. Leach and Geneva Hodges. She is also the daughter of John E. Hodges. Calesa completed her high school education in the Columbus Public School system and studied at Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, MS, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Communicative Disorders. She received a Master of Science degree in Communicative Disorders in 2006 from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL. Passionate about

serving others, her vocation as a speech therapist has allowed her to touch the lives of those who reside in skilled nursing facilities. Exhorter Leach’s God given talent as a pianist has allowed her to minister through music at many churches and special events. Her call and passion for serving has allowed her to fill the following capacities: Minister of Music, Director of Christian Education, Director of Children/Youth/Young Adult work and Sunday School Teacher/Superintendent. In 2011, Calesa was among the first group to complete the first online Christian Education Learning program under the leadership of Dr. Carmichael Crutchfield. Her passion for Christian Education led her to further complete a Master of Arts in Christian Education with honors from the Interdenominational Theological Center, Atlanta GA (Spring 2018). In addition to her many re-

sponsibilities, Calesa is the coordinator of an adult and children’s prayer line called “Calesa and Other’s Prayer Ministry” which covers several states. She has been a featured speaker at several churches and has facilitated Christian Education workshops. During the fall of 2016, she stepped out on faith and hosted her very own Women’s Conference entitled “Finally” which gave women the opportunity to voice and share their experiences as well as be empowered to be the agent of change in their homes and communities. Still passionate for the music ministry, Exhorter Leach is currently a musician at College Park CME Church in Atlanta, GA. She is also practicing speech therapy at Parkside Post-Acute and Rehabilitation Center, located in Snellville GA. Calesa’s favorite scripture is Proverbs 27:5 “Open rebuke is better than love that is hidden.”

She enjoys playing the hymns on piano, demonstrating acts of kindness, spending time in meditation and praying for others. Above her accomplishments, she will be the first to tell you that nothing is more important to her than her relationship with the triune God. and her desire to help others achieve that for themselves.

I also learned his mother was an alcoholic. As I learned more about one of the worst bullies in our school, I learned he was a child of abusive alco-

holic parents and also became an alcoholic. He was almost incoherent at our banquet, so in the final analysis he was probably one who needed help more than we did but children aren’t aware of why they are mistreated. Children can be cruel but somehow I survived and hope to glean the lessons that were meant for me to learn and to share from my own experiences because “we are angels with only one wing and we can only fly embracing each other.” Whatever reason it happened I can only surmise but I know that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and that He always gets me to the right place at the right time and that we should lend support to those hurting and do what we can to prevent it.

Cole, Astros beat Rays 6-1 in ALDS Game 5; Yankees next

HOUSTON — All season long, it seemed inevitable. Yankees-Astros for the American League pennant. “It’s the matchup that we wanted,” Houston shortstop Carlos Correa said. “It’s the matchup that everybody wants to watch. It’s must-see TV right there. So everybody is going to be tuning in. It’s going to be fun.” Houston made it happen Thursday night as Gerrit Cole pitched another playoff masterpiece and the Astros jumped to a quick lead, turning back the Tampa Bay Rays 6-1 in the deciding Game 5 of their AL Division Series. On deck, the heavyweight matchup so many fans were anticipating: Jose Altuve and the 107-win Astros against Aaron Judge and the 103-win Yankees. Game 1 is Saturday night in Houston — the Astros won four of seven meetings this season. “This is two incredible powerhouse teams,” Houston ace Justin Verlander said. “We’ll find ourselves in the middle of the ring here in a couple of days and we’ll be going at it.” After fellow aces Zack Greinke and Verlander were unable to close out the scrappy Rays on the road, Cole made sure Houston moved on. Given a 4-0 cushion in the first inning, he dominated through the eighth, striking out 10 and allowing just two hits. “I’m just going to treat it like it’s the next game, man,”

said Cole, who grew up a Yankees fan. “I mean, we know that they’re obviously very talented, and it’s going to be a dogfight.” Michael Brantley and Altuve put the finishing touches on this victory, hitting backto-back home runs in the eighth. The Astros advanced to their third straight ALCS, and are aiming for their second World Series crown in that span. Houston beat the Yankees in a seven-game ALCS on the way to its first championship in 2017. The Astros also won the 2015 AL wild-card game at Yankee Stadium. The Rays beat Oakland in the AL wild-card game, then won Games 3 and 4 against the Astros to extend their first playoff run since 2013. But facing Cole, the Rays were in trouble — especially after Altuve, Alex Bregman and the Astros scored four times in the first against Tyler Glasnow, who said afterward it was pretty obvious he was tipping pitches. “You get a taste of this, you want to keep going,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “Today we kind of got outpowered. Outpowered on the mound and obviously at the plate.” Cole followed his 15-strikeout gem in a Game 2 win with another overpowering effort. The right-hander, who was drafted by the Yankees out of high school but didn’t sign,

improved to 18-0 in his last 24 starts. “This team is special, and the reason that we’re special is because different guys step up every single night,” Bregman said. “Yeah, if one guy goes off we’re probably going to win. Gerrit went off twice this series.” Cole topped the majors with 326 strikeouts this season, led the AL with a 2.50 ERA and posted 20 wins, one

behind Verlander for most in the big leagues. He tried to stick to what got him this far and not alter his approach on Thursday night even though the stakes were so much higher. “You’re not naive to the situation you’re in, but you can’t afford to treat it any different,” he said. The 29-year-old struck out the first two batters in the eighth before Willy Adames

grounded out to end Cole’s night. “I don’t know if anybody can get better than that,” Adames said. “He was unbelievable last start, and today was still the same.” Cole beat his chest once before walking to the dugout to a huge ovation from the rowdy sellout crowd of 43,418 at Minute Maid Park. “Energy was so great all night,” Cole said. “They deserved a hat tip.” After winning an MLB-best and franchise-record 107 games in the regular season, the Astros were determined not to suffer the same fate as the Dodgers, winners of 106 games, who were ousted from the playoffs by the wildcard Nationals on Wednesday night. Houston had been outscored 14-4 in the last two games, but looked sharp at home, where it went 60-21 in the regular season. A day after the Cardinals scored a postseason-record 10 runs in the first inning of a 13-1 win over the Braves, the Astros scored four runs fast. Now it wasn’t nearly as big as what St. Louis did, but after the Astros were shut down at Tropicana Field, it was just as huge for them. The Astros will make their seventh appearance in an LCS and are the first team to reach the ALCS three seasons in a row since the Detroit Tigers did it from 2011-13.

Altuve’s shot gave him 11 postseason homers to pass Chase Utley for most all-time by a second baseman. Cole extended his major league record by striking out at least 10 batters for the 11th straight game, a stretch where he’s fanned 135. Cole pitched a 1-2-3 third but didn’t strike anyone out in the frame, ending a streak of 73 consecutive innings with at least one strikeout. The streak, which dated back to Aug. 1, was the longest such streak since 1961, besting the second-best stretch by 33 innings. George Springer and Brantley hit back-to-back singles and Altuve’s single made it 1-0. Bregman’s double, which landed just in front of the bullpen in right-center, scored two more to push the lead to 3-0. Yuli Gurriel’s groundball single to left field added another. Houston’s five hits and four runs set franchise playoff records for most hits and runs in the first inning. Eric Sogard hit a solo homer in the Tampa Bay second in his first start in almost a month while dealing with a foot injury. But Tampa Bay managed only a single by Ji-Man Choi in the fourth and a walk by Travis d’Arnaud to start the seventh against Cole. Roberto Osuna pitched a hitless ninth to finish off the win.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: Glenbrook eighth-grade What to watch in Webster beats Lakeside

JJ Marshall Big games and matchups have littered tonight’s schedule in what may be a wet, wild weekend in prep football. Minden (4-1) vs. North DeSoto (3-2) The Pit, 7 p.m. The Tide have won fourstraight games after an opening-week loss to Parkway. North DeSoto is the toughest opponent that Minden will have faced since the first week against the Panthers. But, the Tide have a ton of confidence and are playing at home. A win over the Griffins would catapult the Tide into the 4-A state Top-10 power rankings heading into a brutal part of the schedule. Minden struggled on offense last week against BTW, reverting to habits from last season despite picking up a relatively easy win. The Tide need big plays from the receiving core and a solid game on the ground

from Lieric Robinson and company. North Webster (2-3) vs. Bossier (5-0) Springhill, 7 p.m. The undefeated Bearkats head to Springhill for the first district game of the season for both teams. Bossier has rolled through their schedule unscathed, but it hasn’t been a super difficult one. North Webster, on the other hand, has had one of the toughest schedules in the state. The Knights have struggled to get all of their best players on the field at once, something that head coach John

Ware will hope to have remedied by tonight. The Knights desperately need a win at home tonight. Glenbrook (4-2) vs. River Oaks (1-6) Monroe, 7 p.m. The Apaches had a week off to rest after rolling through the opening half of the schedule. Glenbrook has been on fire, especially on offense, through the win-streak. The Apaches will need another big game from Jackson Powell at quarterback, as teams have started to load up the box in anticipation of DJ Carter running the ball out of the backfield.

JJ Marshall Glenbrook’s junior varsity team is following in the footsteps of their varsity squad. After a 35-0 win over Lakeside on Thursday night, the Apaches are now 5-1 this season. “I can’t say enough about our eighth-graders,” Glenbrook coach Holden Orgeron said. “They give us everything they have every day at practice and turn around and give our varsity a look at their practice. They’re a coach’s dream.” Grayson Williams had two

rushing touchdowns against Lakeside. Reagan Coyle put up over 150 all-purpose yards, and Landry Powell (younger brother of varsity QB Jackson Powell) threw for over 100 yards. “Landry Powell and Reagan Coyle have been the backbone of our offense,” Orgeron said. “Whether it’s Reagan running the ball or Landry passing it, they make it hard for a defense to stop us.” Garret Brown had two receiving touchdowns. Cason Clemons had a 65-yard TD reception. Jonathan Bryant led the defense with three sacks

against Lakeside. “Garret Brown and Chase Sentell lit it up on defense, stuffing their running game,” Orgeron said. “Jonathan Bryant has given everyone we’ve played a fit coming off the edge.” These young Apaches are mirroring the Glenbrook high school team, creating a pipeline for head coach Drew Maddox to choose from in the future. “I know Coach Maddox is excited about this group coming up,” Orgeron said. “Coach Maddox and Coach Feaster have been great mentors to us younger coaches and have taught us a lot.”
