It's now up to Spencer Bond to make change permanent

Ada —  

I have to admit I was sorta happy when East Central lost the toss before Saturday’s game against Arkansas-Monticello.

The contest was critical to any plans the Tigers had to make a run at the Great American Conference title in the league’s second season and marked the first career start for redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Bond.  A former high school phenom from Madill who had battled high-profile Lawton product Cody Miller for the starting job since last spring, Bond was handed the keys to an ECU offense that had stunk up the joint(s) in a Week 2 win over Southern Nazarene at Norris Field and an ugly 13-10 Week 3 loss at GAC rival Southwestern.  

After fuming all the way back from Weatherford, head coach Tim McCarty consulted with offensive coordinator Rashad Jackson and pulled the trigger, benching Miller — a sophomore who backed up Tyler Vanderzee in 2011 — and turning to Bond to breathe some life into a Tiger attack gasping for air since the season began.

  • A better use of the Mayan calendar

     

    Few things are more disturbing than predictions of the end of the world. Not because there’s any validity to them. As Hank Hanegraaff, The Bible Answer Man says, end time predictions are notable only because they are 100 percent wrong, 100 percent of the time.

    The last unemployment report to be released before the election reiterates how far we have to go to reach pre-recession levels of prosperity.  The 7.9 percent unemployment rate recorded for October is up slightly from September’s 7.8 percent.  Even more discouraging, it is slightly higher than the 7.8 percent recorded when President Obama first took office while the recession was at its peak.
