Techsters stun Lady Rebels

The Lady Techsters (6-3) cornered their biggest win of the young 2005-2005 campaign at the Thomas Assembly Center, hustling past the newly top 25 ranked Lady Rebels 84-71 in front of 2,012 fans.

Toys provide hope for tots

The Jaycees used various businesses throughout Ruston as drop spots for the toys and collected the presents along with Green Clinic last week.

Your sign should mean something

You could also add “hurry” to the mix.
