WHERE IN THE HERALD IS DYLLON REDIKER? He is in downtown Enterprise, Ala. next to the world famous boll weevil monument. The monument was erected in 1919 to recognize the agricultural pest which spurred farmers to diversify their crops. The weevil had decimated much of Coffee County’s cotton crop and led to the introduction of peanut production. (Photo by Jeffrey Powell)

PONCE DE LEON’S BOYS PLAYED HARD DEFENSE, but Paxton’s deft shooting on the night of Jan. 10 proved way more than the Pirates could handle. Paxton won the game 65-23 and had a running clock most of the fourth quarter. (Photo by Reid Tucker)
