Big news never stopped coming in Tech Nation

Davis, OK.jpg

Never a dull moment.
That’s what I love about being a sportswriter.
Oh, there might be lulls over a year’s time, but not enough to keep a journalist from checking his contact book for the latest rumors involving injuries or coaching changes.

’Dogs grab ‘ugly’ win

McNeail’s 18 points leads Tech past USM
9-3.jpg

In terms of artwork, Louisiana Tech University’s home court victory over the University of Southern Mississippi on Saturday night was more graffiti than Rembrandt.
Good thing, then, that the Bulldogs had an “artist” in unexpected star Kenyon McNeail.
The junior guard came off of the bench to light a fire under the Bulldogs (8-2) in the final half and ended with a game-leading 18 points in a 65-55 victory on the Karl Malone Court at the Thomas Assembly Center.

Weighing in on saggy pants

Public hearing delayed until February to accommodate students

GRAMBLING — For the City of Grambling, the issue of whether sagging pants is a statement of personal style or a finable public nuisance will have to wait a little while longer to be settled as the aldermen voted to postpone a public hearing and vote on the matter until February.
During the Dec. 6 regularly scheduled meeting, the councilmen and women voted to introduce an ordinance to provide for the crime of indecent exposure/sagging and establish penalties for violations thereof. After a brief discussion, the aldermen decided to wait to hold a public hearing at 5 p.m. Feb. 7 in order to allow the students at Grambling State University a chance to voice their concerns. Students will still be on semester break during the regularly scheduled January meeting. If passed, those exposing their undergarments will be subject to fines or jail time if found to be in violation of the ordinance.

Emergency alert sirens enabled

Monthly tests may become norm
1-2.jpg

The City of Ruston’s Outdoor Audible Emergency Warning System is up and running.
In the last few days, local residents might have heard loud sounds similar to the emergency alert broadcast system on TV as the 13 sirens spread throughout the city were tested.
For now, the testing is over. But, City Utility Manager Darrell Caraway said, in the future, the city will likely conduct monthly testing of the sirens. However, he said the tones would be different than the sound the sirens would make during an actual emergency, so residents will know not to be alarmed.
