The Northwest Louisiana Chapter of the American Red Cross includes 10 parishes: Caddo, Bossier, Bienville, Lincoln, Natchitoches, DeSoto, Red River, Sabine, Webster and Claiborne.
According to the American Red Cross, President Franklin D. Roosevelt first proclaimed March as Red Cross Month 70 years ago.

Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

Yes, it’s getting to be one of my favorite times of the year, because it reminds me of one of my favorites things — dogs.
Ruston Parks and Recreation Department’s annual Furry Fun Walk will be held Saturday at a new location — the J.C. Love Softball Complex. That’s because the event again needed to move to a different location because it continues to get more popular every year.

Graves, Liz.jpg

We’re all taught manners growing up: Never get in someone’s personal space uninvited; if someone says “no thank you,” leave them be; don’t judge a book by its cover. These are universal principles that we all follow; unfortunately, all too often these basic rules of etiquette go out the window when a person is interacting with the blind.
There is no special way to act around blind people, they’re just people. If you’re ever unsure about something, just think “would I want this done to me.” With that in mind, I will share some occurrences to avoid.

Although they’re thrilled about being the No. 1 seed, Head Coach Michael White and his Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs realize that the 2012-13 regular season didn’t end the way they preferred.
Until last week, Tech had not lost in the Western Athletic Conference and was on a national-leading 18-game victory streak.
Then, kaboom!
There was an 18-point (78-60) stumble at New Mexico State, then a 28-point (78-54) defeat at Denver, by far the biggest losing margins of an otherwise near-perfect season for the Bulldogs (26-5).
