Tons Of Fun BBQ Open Labor Day

Tons Of Fun BBQ in Bartlett will be open on Labor Day from 9 AM until sold out. They are located at 337 South Dalton (Highway 95) in Bartlett, at the site formerly occupied by Perez BBQ.


Bulldogs Seek Revenge In Season Opener

New Coach Melvin Bates starts with a clean slate as head coach in Bartlett, but with big shoes to fill, replacing Joe Mullins who led the Dogs to 5 playoff appearances in his 6 years at Bartlett. The Bulldogs, in new District 13 2A Division II, open the season against Bosqueville from District 8 2A Division I. Bosqueville defeated Bartlett 43-20 last year. Experience-wise, they will be somewhat similar to the Dogs. Bartlett's district will be led by Bremond, who are new to the district and were a regional finalist last year, and defending champ Burton. Milano is expected to finish third, followed by Bartlett, Snook, Granger and Somerville. Bosqueville will be the favorite for Friday night's game, which will be played in Bartlett.



Hornets Start Season With Jarrell

The Holland Hornets will start the high school football campaign with a bang as they face the Jarrell Cougars. The Hornets return a lot of experience from a 7-3 team last year, but as a class 2A team could be slightly outnumbered by 3A Jarrell. Holland is expected to finish 3rd in a new 6 team district that includes Thorndale, Rosebud-Lott, Moody, Thrall and Riesel. Jarrell, meanwhile, is picked to finish second behind Rogers in their district. Holland will be led by Junior QB Seth Spinn, who ran for 1,089 yards, passed for 756 yards and scored a total of 23 touchdowns. Sophomore RB Bryce Tubbs is also back, rushing for 546 yards and 8 TDs last year, and also making 14 pass receptions for 190 yards and 2 touchdowns. Linebacker Amado Minor and end Kyle Nicholson are expected to be defensive leaders. The game is scheduled for Friday August 29 in Jarrell.

Dove Season Open September 1

Dove hunters will have more opportunity later in the season with dates and bag limits finalized by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department recently. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has approved the 2014-2015 Texas dove season, including a 70-day season and 15-bird daily bag statewide, and a 16-day early teal and Canada goose season. The traditional September 1 dove season opening day in the North and Central Zones remains; this year falling on Labor Day Monday. However, the first segment in those zones will be shorter than last season, closing on Monday, Oct. 20. The season will reopen Friday, Dec. 19 and run through Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 in the North and Central Zones. In the South Zone and Special White-winged Dove Area, the first segment will be shortened by five days compared to last year, and those days would be added to the end of the second segment. The South Zone opens Friday, Sept. 19 and runs through Monday, Oct. 20. The second segment will run Friday, Dec. 19 through Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015. The daily bag limit for doves statewide is 15 and the possession limit is 45. The Special White-winged Dove Area will be restricted to afternoon only (noon to sunset) hunting the first two full September weekends on Sept. 6-7 and 13-14. Hunting in this area will reopen Friday, Sept. 19 and continue through Monday, Oct. 20, and then reopen Friday, Dec. 19 through Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015. During the early two weekends, the daily bag limit is 15 birds, to include not more than two mourning doves and two white-tipped doves. Once the general season opens, the aggregate bag limit will be 15 with no more than two white-tipped doves. A 16-day statewide early teal and Eastern Zone Canada goose season will run Saturday, Sept. 13 through Sunday, Sept. 28. The daily bag on teal remains six, with a possession limit of 18. Bag limit for Canada geese will be three and a possession limit of 6 in the Eastern Zone only.
