A private memorial service for Martha Miller age 56, of Malvern, Arkansas
Del Head of Sheridan, Arkansas was born July 1, 1970 in Downy, California,
On Monday, Malvernâ€™s baseball and softball teams made a trip to Little Rock to take on Central Arkansas Christian in a conference matchup.
The Lady Leopards came from behind to win their game 9-8, but the Leopards couldnâ€™t mount a big enough rally and fell by the score of 3-2.
In the softball game, Malvern scored the first run in the top of the first inning when Macy Holyfield reached on a base hit and was driven home by a Koree Walsh double.
Tayonna Bailey was on the mound for Malvern and held CAC scoreless in the first inning.
At the end of the work day today my vacation will start and by this evening I will be in New York City enjoying all the city has to offer.
Being a sports guy, my list of things to do in the Big Apple include a trip to Madison Square Garden to see the Knicks play, as well as Yankee Stadium for a Yankees game.
If time permits, I may even try to take a train down to Boston to visit Fenway Park and see the Green Monster in person.

The 2012-2013 season was a good one for the Malvern Lady Leopards basketball team.
Not only did they win the 4A state championship with a record of 32-2, they were virtually unstoppable the rest of the season as well, picking up win after win and tournament title after tournament title.
Some of the accolades that came the Lady Leopardsâ€™ way during the season included being the champions of the Spa City Shootout, 7-4A Conference champion, district champion and regional champion.
Individual Lady Leopards also were also recognized for their play during the year.
All my life I have been a huge basketball fan (Arkansas for most of that time), but I have always had a core group of teams that I absolutely despised.
It didnâ€™t matter who these teams were playing, I always rooted for their opponent (unless of course it was one of my other hated teams).
But once I started to think about it, I noticed that all of the teams I had a grudge against had something in common â€” aside from being the perennial â€śsuper teamsâ€ť â€” the primary color for each of these schools was blue.
