  • BATON ROUGE BLAST: Racing, BBQ, fireworks top weekend event

    When Kaleb Wells learned how to ride a bicycle when he was 2, that was just the beginning for the Dry Ridge Elementary second grader.

    Forget about losing the training wheels, Wells now straps on a helmet to compete in motocross racing at the ripe age of 7.

    “It’s exciting how fast I can go,” he said. “I go 35 or 40 miles per hour. It’s fun to jump the jumps and race the straight stretch.”

    Wells, who has more trophies than most have in a lifetime, has competed in more than 40 races, 21 of which he placed first.

  • OLD TREE FALLS VICTIM TO BIG WIND

    It’s not just farmers, who’ve been forced to deal with heavy spring rains.

    Homeowners have lost trees when the heavy winds snapped them from their roots and from trees toppling over in the rain-sodden soil.

    Gilbert Mursinna’s home on Stewartsville Road in Williamstown narrowly missed being squashed by a large oak tree.

    The tree, approximately 55 to 60 feet tall, missed the 200-year-old home when heavy winds ripped through the area a couple of weeks ago.
