Run for a good cause Saturday

This weekend the area will play host to run/walks benefiting autism awareness, the Children’s Miracle Network, the South of California Avenue (SOCA) neighborhood and the March of Dimes run walk follows a week later.
And that’s a good thing. Not only will participants be benefiting such causes, they’ll be helping themselves in the process.

This past February, trying to lose some holiday weight, I began to tweak my diet a little in hope that I would consume foods that would give me more energy with less calories. As most know, calories are a source of energy, along with protein and carbohydrates. Since most energy producers are also counterproductive to weight loss when consumed in large amounts, this feat was rather daunting, as I had to carefully weigh my options when shopping at the grocery store.

GRAMBLING — How confident is D.J. Williams in Grambling State University’s offense for the 2013 season?
So confident that the Tigers’ starting quarterback has already started to peg some of his cohorts on that unit with nicknames.
Asked about the play of tight end Brandon Byrdsong during Saturday afternoon’s “Black-Gold” spring game, Williams immediately replied with “Mr. Reliable.”
Running back Juwaun Martin?
“He’s ‘Mr. Respond’,” answered Williams.

DART crusades at the capitol

Autrey, Terrie Q.jpg

I feel a little like Jimmy Stewart in “Mr. Smith Goes To Washington” after my return from Baton Rouge recently. Having only visited the State Capitol one other time, as a chaperone for my daughter’s eighth grade field trip, I had no other exposure to the noise, pace and vibrating energy of the legislative session. On April 16, I accompanied four other DART staff members to Baton Rouge, where we participated in Legislative Day at the Capitol.
