    Kemper County High School, Kemper Academy, Nanih Waiya and East Mississippi Community College have certainly had their share of athletic success over the years, but what is happening on the football fields of those area schools this season is unprecedented.

    The 2016 fast-pitch softball season came to a close for Kemper Academy last week — a little sooner than expected.

    A young KA squad, which started the year with just 11 players, finished the campaign 2-9 overall and 1-5 in district play after a 15-0 loss to defending Class A state runner-up and rival Central Academy last Tuesday in DeKalb.

    The Lady Tigers from Ethel are expected to make a deep run into the Class 1A slow-pitch softball playoffs this fall.

    In facing Nanih Waiya on a pair of occasions, they’ve certainly showed the part.

    Visiting Ethel got a pair of home runs from Sidney Rone during a 10-run eruption in the third inning last Thursday, and the Lady Tigers coasted to a rout-shortened, 15-1 win over the Lady Warriors.

    The Kemper County Lady Wildcats haven't seen success on the scoreboard this season but are making strides towards their long-term goals of building a program.

    Kemper County, in its first season under coach Danielle Spurlock, is starting with the basics and quickly generating interest.
  • Nanih Waiya opens Region 3-1A play with solid victory
    Wednesday, September 21, 2016 6:00 PM
    Following an emotional win — and one pointed to by many as a possible turning point — Nanih Waiya’s coaching staff knew a letdown was inevitable.

    Luckily for those fellows and the Warriors, it didn’t last long.

    Kemper Academy continues to pile up easier-than-expected victories on the football field,

    The Rams are also piling up more than their fair share of injuries.

    Senior quarterback Dalton Sanderford had an “Al Bundy plus two” kind of night, and homestanding Kemper raced to a 76-28 win over previously-unbeaten Delta Academy last Friday night on “The Hill” in DeKalb.

    This week we’ll be looking at Luke 12:8-12. The whole passage has to do with how we testify with our tongues to the Lord Jesus Christ. It begins by talking about our testimony to Jesus with our lips. In verse 10 it talks about those who oppose Jesus with their lips and with their words, and in verses 11 and 12 it talks about giving testimony to Jesus when we're called to give an account for the hope that is in us.
  • DUNCAN/“The Leaven of Hypocrisy”
    Wednesday, September 14, 2016 6:00 PM
    This week we’ll be looking at Luke 12:1-3. As you turn there you may want to allow your eyes to roam back over Luke 11 to remember what has occurred right before this discourse. A Pharisee had judged Jesus for failing to wash his hands before eating, and Jesus responded with a rebuke for the Pharisees. He later turned to his disciples and pronounced woes upon the Pharisees for their fundamental problem of hypocrisy.

    We continue our way through Luke's Gospel today by looking at Luke 11:37-54, which contains the outline of a very awkward dinner conversation. Jesus has been invited into the home of a Pharisee, a respected leader.

    We're in Luke 11:29-36 today. How are your eyes? I'm talking about your spiritual eyes. How clearly are you seeing things in life? How clearly are you seeing yourself? Are you able to see your sin and your need? Are you locked in on the true wisdom? When you hear true, heavenly wisdom does it resonate with you? And how about Jesus and the Gospel? Are the eyes of your heart fixed on Him?
  • Wednesday, August 10, 2016 1:51 PM
    As we continue our way through the Gospel of Luke, we come to an extraordinary passage in which Jesus casts a demon out of a man who has been made mute by the activity of that demon and it evokes varying responses from the multitude that were observing this. Some marveled but others ascribed Jesus' activities to the power of Satan while still others demanded that that sign of casting out a demon was not enough. And of course in this passage He identifies Himself as the One who is able to plunder the strong man and so He shows Himself to be the Ruler of the ruler of the demons.
