Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Pluginseo

Dear Mrs. Daune and family, Keeping you in my prayers during this time. Thank you for sharing Coach with us all of these years. Friday nights won't ever be quite the same for us Rebels but we will always have his spirit with us on Friday nights. It most definitely is Don Shows Field. He put West Monroe on the map long before Duck Dynasty. Praying He comforts you all each day. In His Love, Susan Harris

We have wonderful memories of golfing road trips, fish fries, and crawfish boils shared with Don and Duane. One of Roy's favorite memories was playing in a golf tournament on a hot, humid day. It was well-known that Don didn't consume alcoholic beverages including beer. However, on this particular day, there was no cold water in sight, so Don said to Roy "Give me a beer!" Roy said, "Are you sure, Don? You don't drink beer!" Don popped the top off the can and downed its content without stopping." Don went on to birdie the next two holes!" Thereafter, Roy encouraged Don to drink another can, but he said, "No, one drink was enough to win us this tournament!" Thanks for the many sweet memories, Don. Regretfully, we didn't stay in touch after your move to WMHS. But, we always followed your schedule and were always proud to see you with another W. RIP.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Don and I began Ruston Jr. High together many years ago. We went on to run track together at Ruston High. I knew he would do well as a coach. He was always upbeat and liked to laugh and was very comfortable in his own skin. Rest in peace, old friend.

Linda Wilson left a message on March 5, 2014:
Dear Shows Family,Don and I taught together for many years at WMHS. He gave me a hard time about being "hard old Mrs. Wilson," and I gave it right back to him! He teased me about being older than he because I had more white hair! I so enjoyed this gentle teasing and felt so much pride in how he brought the winning spirit to our school and community. Although I now live in Baton Rouge, I will never forget the thrill of some of those first wins with Coach Shows at the helm at WMHS. I will sincerely miss him, yet I know his spirit is alive and well wherever there is a team that fights hard and with integrity.

I have not seen Don for well over fifty years, but I knew him from the first grade, junior high, and into RHS. He had the qualities which would have served him well as a coach: determination and friendliness. I am sorry for his loss.
Brandon Helms left a message on March 5, 2014:
Don was a unique man. He offered me so much good advice on being a better coach. But some of our best conversations were about family and life outside of football. The lives he touched were numerous. I will miss the friendship and the competitiveness we had. Miss you my friend!
Sandi O'Glee Cain left a message on March 5, 2014:
Don was one of the hardest working people I ever met. He didn't consider coaching work & made it look easy. That was his passion. My condolences to his wife Duane, children Stephanie, Kim, Casey, Haley & all the grandchildren. May you always remember the values & life lessons he taught you, as well as everyone else whose life was touched by him.

Twenty-two years ago on a hot sunny day, I was playing the old Riverside Golf Course and ran into a man (a stranger to me) on #7. I introduced myself and he professionally introduced himself to me as the new football coach at West Monroe. Before we finished the hole, he had tried to hustle me and I was trying to hustle him out of a bet. Neither of us got the better of one another. After those few holes were played, I told him I would never bet against him and we formed a partnership and friendship that has lasted ever since. My partner and I have played what we called the "I-20 Circuit" from Arcadia to Tallulah. We won a lot and lost a few. All of the guys at Morehouse knew us well. We played there for many years, going down #18 with all the money on the table. Don would call it "Thrill Hill". Just this past fall when Don was doing a little better and getting his strength back, he asked me to go and play all of the small town tourneys. He loved Meadowlake in Bernice and wanted to back. He always reminiced about the playoff we were in in Tallulah with Bear and Frank. We had a lot of fun the past 22 years. I know Don had many different groups of friends he played golf with, but I know the last 22 years, his weekends during May through August, were spent with Gene, John, Danny Ray, Bruce, Mike, Curveball, Melvin and me. I am going to miss you. Save a spot for me up there. I will be there to join you again one day, partner.

You never called me by my name. I was always Jammit to you. And you never said hello or how are was always "Stop me if you've heard this one" and it would be another one of your signature jokes. I'll miss you, Don!

Coach put West Monroe on the map in the world of high school sports. He brought West Monroe up from an embarrassment to a force to be reckoned with. We will continue to see his accomplishments through his students and athletes for many years to come. He may have seemed hard on his team, fellow coaches and, of course, the opposition; but you have to love him for his commitment and the enduring legacy he leaves with West Monroe. Coach Shows will be greatly missed - but never forgotten!

Don and I started the 1st grade together -- Eastland School, Ruston, La., September, 1946. Our teacher, Mrs. Owens had 48 students and no teacher's aide. Don and I played Bearcat football under Coach Hoss Garrett, and graduated in 1958.
