Andrew Whitworth is having a Pro Bowl season at offensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Grambling showed grit despite another defeat

in

GRAMBLING — They lost again last Saturday, but maybe the Tigers of Grambling State University began showing signs of a “turnaround” for their upcoming regular season finale.
That would be on Nov. 24 (1 p.m.) against Southern University and what better time to do it, what with the “Bayou Classic” in New Orleans always being an annual championship-like setting between the two rivals?

Keep working on Sparta relief

Recent information places the overuse of the Sparta Aquifer at approximately 6.61 million gallons per day, which is significantly less than the 18 million gallons per day reported just a few years ago.

For several years, I have had the pleasure of singing at the Joe Woods Wildwood Express Reunion, annually, at the Dixie Theater. Every time I walk through the front door of the old building and down those two side aisles, it’s like a stroll back in time.
Saturday nights in Ruston, in the 1960s, were reserved for open-face hamburgers at Hoods Barbecue and the “preview” at the Dixie.
The “preview” was the first showing of each new movie that would appear the next week, at the theater.

Learn more about prematurity

in
Darland, Nancy.jpg

Every year, more than half a million babies are born too soon in the United States, too small and often very sick — 10,000 of them right here in Louisiana. We need to fight, because babies shouldn’t have to.
November is Prematurity Awareness Month and Nov. 17 is World Prematurity Day. The March of Dimes has released the 2012 Report Cards on Premature Birth that grade the nation and our state on its rate of premature birth. The report card comes with recommendations for improvement.
Visit http://www.marchofdimes.com/mission/prematurity_reportcard.html to see more information.
