Moms and mementos: The Mother's Day to remember
April at 92 years old. It now resides on my dresser. — Phyllis C. Mack, of Port Vincent
When my mother, Celina Cornet Roussel, died in September 1996 I found among her memorabilia the plain, yellowed Mother’s Day card I made about 1958. I recall asking Mama to help me with a Paulina Elementary art project in second or third grade. She recited a poem which I incorporated into her card. The “H” in Mama’s poem did not accurately describe her, but that did not matter to this young girl because my brunette mother was still young and might have white hair some day, I supposed. The words are still committed to my memory all these years later. Mama kept the card for 38 years, and I now have it! — Millie Roussel Matherne, of Gonzales
At the age of 8, in 1963, my son Steve gave me this prayer card as a Mother’s Day gift. As you can see, its edges are frayed but only because it has been in every wallet I’ve owned since that Sunday 53 years ago. I call it my lucky charm because I truly believe it is. — Del Materne, of Metairie
This recipe book was given to me on Mother’s Day in 1958 by my oldest daughter, Rebecca “Becky” Forman Coxe. Becky was 6 years old and in the first grade in Bastrop. I am now 86 and Becky is 63, and the recipes in it are still used often. — Carol Forman, of Baker
There are three treasured gifts I always kept on my desk at work and, now retired, at home. During my workday as a young working mom, I could look at the pencil holders and be assured that my children, Gene Settoon age 6 in 1992, now 30; and Christine Settoon, age 6 in 1995, now 27; were happy in their first year at St. Philip Neri. They each came home with their kindergarten project so very proud. When they would visit my office they noticed their gift on my desk and beamed when a coworker would admire their artwork! The “Mom” rock was painted by my daughter at about the same age during a craft lesson from her Granny, my mother Dolores Dollar, and reminds me that parents are the “rock” for their children all of their lives. — Debbie Settoon, of Kenner
My son Graham made this cut-out card when he was in grade school — probably about first or second grade. He is left-handed and you will see from the inside of the card that it opens from the left. You will see from oldest son Greer’s card, it opens to the right and, rather than a cut-out, he drew a teddy bear, cut it out and pasted it on top of the card. The cards are unique, so different and special, as are my sons. I keep the cards taped to my bathroom mirror. Graham is now 20 and a freshman at LSU. Greer is now 21 and a senior at LSU. — Lisa Gardner, of Baton Rouge
I love being a mom just to get these gems! — Cheri Olinde, of St. Amant, says of the pictures colored by 6-year-old son Bryson
This is one of my favorite drawings by my daughter Emmy Miller (age 13). She gave me it to me last year for Mother’s Day when she was 12. It is very special to me for several reasons. First, you can see the thoughtfulness and effort she put into it, w... (The Advocate)Jan 8, 2016
Lima Senior football coach Fell resigns after turning around Spartans
The 54-year-old Fell, a 1979 Lima Senior graduate, has a career record of 191-94 in 26 seasons as a head coach at Columbus Grove, Celina, Ada and Lima Senior. All seven of his teams at Ada qualified for the playoffs and his Columbus Grove teams reached the postseason four times.
“I’m really happy with what we’ve done here. I think we started something great here,” Fell said. “It’s a great feeling to have young men buy into what you’re talking about and what you believe in.”
On the day he was introduced as Lima Senior’s new coach three years ago, Fell said, “It’s a big challenge and I’m not naïve enough to think it’s an easy thing to do. It’s a big challenge and I think it’s worth the time.”
Fell, a two-year starter at quarterback for the Spartans in 1977 and 1978, successfully sold his program to athletes who hadn’t had much success on the football field for a long time.
“When I got the job in Lima, they said guys won’t lift weights. They said you can’t keep them out, they want to play basketball. The bottom line is they wanted someone to invest the time and say, ‘This is what you have to do.’ The bottom line is you have to lift weights, you have to come to practice, you have to follow the rules, you have to go to class.
“Basically, you raise the expectations. If you raise their expectations, they will get it done. We had a great group of athletes but you will always have a great group of athletes at Lima Senior. And once you start winning, it’s contagious,” he said.
Wide receiver Ruben Flowers, who will sign with the University of Pittsburgh in February, said the changes went beyond the football field.
“I can see a lot of changes. We had a reason to go to class, we had a reason to get better grades and help out in the community. Now it’s not just our parents who are worried about us, it is other people outside of our parents, our coaches and our teachers. It made us work harder and made our attitudes more positive,” he said.
Lima Senior athletic director John Zell said the opening for a head football coach has been posted and that applications will be taken until Jan. 30, with interviews to follow.
Lima Senior has 12 returning starters but loses key players like Flowers, the Three Rivers Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year, TRAC Defensive Player of the Year Jaylin Thomas, quarterback Darius Gordon, running back Demontay Liles and receiver Rico Stafford.
Lima schools superintendent Jill Ackerman said Fell’s leaving “is bittersweet and it’s sad.”
“But we look at it with excitement in that we can hopefully bring in a great coach, maybe someone with some longevity and integrate them into our school system. We will have teaching positions available,” she said. “It (winning) is not only good for our school system, it’s good for the co... (Lima Ohio)Nov 20, 2015
Sounding Off: Readers discuss Flower Mound's sex offender ordinance
A Catch-22 if there ever was one.
Norman Pickett, Celina: I’m not sure why we bother with all the legal incarceration costs if after they pay their debt to society folks like Flower Mound can’t let them live life again. It’s kind of stupid if you ask me.
Daver Lapka, Southlake: Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. stated that a man's right to swing his arm ends when it infringes on another person’s nose — and that seems very fair. For a person to be a registered sex offender, they have to have committed a crime that violated the above rule. Government’s role is to create environments that are safe and secure for all of the residents that pay taxes to live there. Since psychologists tell us they can never cure the affliction that causes individuals to behave in illegal sexual behavior, the government has a responsibility to keep those people away from those of us who haven’t and might not feel safe for our families to be around them. If they don’t, they are in effect sanctioning individuals to enact their own protections and retributions for criminal trespass.
