Louisiana Tech University’s diamond teams have been sparkling this spring.
And it’s not just because of the ‘’face lifting’’ that J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park and the Lady Techsters’ Complex underwent during the off-season.
More significantly for followers of the Bulldogs’ and Techsters’ fans, it’s because of their on-the-field success.

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

If April showers bring May flowers, Lincoln Parish should be looking good for the next few months.
That’s if we don’t float away.
The incredible weather we enjoyed over the weekend inspired me to buy a bunch of plants Sunday afternoon to help beautify our deck with a hanging/potted plant garden that we like to create every year.
For me, gardening is a very relaxing activity, allowing me to create a space we love to spend much time in during the summer months, especially before Mother Nature turns up the heat.
But first, she’s got to turn off the rain.

With the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team’s radiothon behind us, we are able to take a breath, look around, and notice some very good things which are happening at our shelter.
I wrote in March that our Children’s Activity Building had been delivered to the shelter.
The funding for this building was our goal for last year’s radiothon.
We have used those funds to pay for a modular building with a handicap-accessible bathroom included.
The latter was very important, since our former Children’s Room did not have a bathroom.
