Monday may have just been another day at work for Jean Gros, but it also marked an anniversary of a trade he has done for more than six decades.

The Morgan City Recreation Department kicked off its flag football season Monday at Norman Park in Morgan City. Unlike in the past, this year the football season will not include tackle football because of a lack of signups, Morgan City Youth Recreation Director Seth Thomas said. Games will be played Monday and Tuesday each week. Three games will be held each night, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with games following at 6:15 p.m. and 7 p.m. At left, Morgan City Mayor Frank “Boo” Grizzaffi kicks off to begin the season prior to an exhibition game between the Steelers and the Cowboys.
