Bicknell, Bulldogs focused on ‘bowl game’ against FSU

“That was a rough one, for sure,” Bicknell said. “It’s been a hard one to get over. I told the coaches we’ve got to stop our kids from moping around and pick our heads up.”
It appeared Bicknell was not the only one who had a difficult time overcoming the loss in a game in which the Bulldogs held a 10-7 edge at the half. For the first time in more than a month, Tech’s top dog didn’t receive a hand when he entered the dining area set aside for Quarterback Club members in Maxwell’s Restaurant.

CCA supper benefits less fortunate

But that’s all it takes to support one of Lincoln Parish’s worthy causes — Christian Community Action.
CCA will hold its annual fund-raiser, the Poor Man’s Supper, from 5-7 p.m., Dec. 6, at the Ruston Civic Center. Admission to the event is $3 and a canned meat.
The event, sponsored by Grace United Methodist Church in Ruston, is CCA’s major fund-raiser each year and has been an annual treat to parish citizens for more than 20 years.

What are you doing out here?

No. Was I running through my lunch break around Sam Goody and Bath and Body Works holding presents in both arms? Yes.
People plan for Christmas more than any other event of the year, I believe. I go to more parties, eat more food and get more gifts during the month of December than any other time. Now, I thought about this for a long time and wondered: Why?
Christmas has been called “the season of giving.” That’s completely true. The trunk of my car and my spare room is currently filled with Christmas gifts for family and friends. However, are we really the people who need gifts?

It’s almost here: Tech vs. Boise State

In arguably the most important game in Bulldogs’ history since a 1990 Independence Bowl-clinching win of 31-30 was achieved against Colorado State, the two teams have a couple of major objectives on the docket:
1-Wrap up a bowl berth.
2-Stay alive for a league championship.
A victory will achieve those goals.

Holiday evolves over time

With my family spread apart from Texas to Arkansas, as well as my in-laws in Pineville, it’s virtually impossible to get around to every stop we need to make during the holiday season.
Therefore, my mother, being the ever-flexible woman that she is, volunteered to hold our Christmas celebration at her place on Thanksgiving (yes, my mother is clever and flexible, but she also ensured that I’ll be at her house for Thanksgiving from here on out).

Give the gift of life

We search high and low, spending hours upon hours looking through various gift shops and department stores for that one thing that jumps off the shelves.
One thing to consider is no gift is more important than the gift of life.
Life Share Blood Center of Ruston is hoping for an increased supply of donated blood for the holidays. Rachael McIntrye, a donor recruiter for Life Share, said the holiday season is when blood is needed the most.

CCA needs volunteers for Poor Man’s Supper

The main course, vegetable soup, will be prepared by the volunteer hosts from the Grace United Methodist Church. The special guest will be “Entourage” from Grambling State University.
The event will be held from 5-7 p.m., Dec. 6, at the Ruston Civic Center. CCA Executive Director Stephanie Griffin said the best way to contribute is to attend, volunteer or both.

Bayou Classic — throw out the records

They, indeed, don’t mean diddley.
On one side, you have Grambling State with its 8-1 record and already clinched Western Division title in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Not to mention six-game winning streak, seven No. 1 team and seven individual rankings in the league’s latest statistical report and far more points scored than any other school in the conference.
On the other side, there’s Southern with its 4-4 overall and Western Division runner-up record and seven team and two individual top listings on that stat chart.

Tulane’s long season ends Saturday

In the manner in which things have transpired over the past several months, one couldn’t fault head coach Chris Scelfo and his team for being thankful about it finally coming to a close.
To say it’s been a trying campaign for the Green Wave would be tantamount to exclaiming that USC has a load of talent.
Hurricane Katrina, new home in Ruston, injury woes, turnovers at critical times and—of course, one road game after another.
Name it and it’s been on the back of these Tulane coaches and players this fall.
