History full of successful black Americans

It is hard to believe that at one time a segment of the population was only counted as three-fifths of a person due to the color of their skin. More shocking is the fact that even as black Americans gained full citizenship and the right to vote, those of African descent were still regarded as second-class citizens.

A world of white vehicles

in
Carter, Bill.jpg

I’ve had a hankering for some time now to place a lean-up ladder deer stand against one of the trees adjacent to the intersection of Reynolds Drive and U.S. 167, across from Captain D’s. If not there, position a folding chair on the overpass in front of Walmart.
Before I’m accused of losing it and going off the deep end, allow me to explain.
During the last few years, I have surmised that over half of the drivers in the greater Ruston metropolitan area are sitting behind the wheel of a white vehicle. Pay attention the next time you are out.

Tech seeks consecutive home win No. 12 Saturday
011813 Johnson C.jpg

Big margin, small margin.
Or a wild, last-second conclusion.
By whatever means, Louisiana Tech University’s Bulldogs have found a way to win during this miraculous, success-paced 2012-13 season.
And, for sure, they’ve won a lot.
The ’Dogs (18-3, 9-0) are on a 10-game victory streak and winners of 12 in a row at home since last year going into a 7 p.m. Western Athletic Conference battle against the University of Texas-Arlington (10-8, 5-4) on Saturday night.

Several days before the NCAA’s “National Signing Day,” Louisiana Tech University’s football program has announced the signing of national letters-of-intent by Texas junior college stars Mitchell Bell of Navarro Junior College and Mitch Villemez of Blinn Junior College.
The Bulldogs unveiled the signings of Bell, a 6-4 and 330-pound offensive lineman, and 6-1 and 230-pound linebacker Villemez on Thursday.
Bell helped lead Navarro to a 10-2 record last year with a 4-2 mark in league play and winning the Heart of Texas Bowl.

White urges fans to show support

in

Dear Louisiana Tech Fans,
When I accepted the head coaching position at Louisiana Tech almost two full years ago, I did my research not only on the school and the community, but on the Bulldog basketball program as well.
I was confident that with the support from the administration, the right mix of talented and high-character student-athletes and an outstanding group of assistant coaches and support staff, that we could return Bulldog Basketball back to the winning tradition of the days of the Mike Green’s, Karl Malone’s and P.J. Brown’s.
