’Dogs: it’s all about re-focusing

“This could build a lot of character with our team.
“I know coach Bicknell (Jack, head coach) and the other coaches always tell us that it’s not what happens to you that matter sometimes, but how you respond to it.
As tough as it’s been, we can’t keep riding it. We’ve got to respond.”
The ‘Dogs will try and respond with a second consecutive home and league game on Saturday, a 6 p.m. meeting with Utah State (1-6, 1-2 WAC) that will be critical if Tech wants to get back in the conference race.

Abuse is at the forefront

As tradition dictates, red life-sized silhouettes of the victims will go up the week before to provide a tangible representation of the number of people whose lives have been prematurely ended.
Also, throughout the month Townsend House Gifts will be holding a pumpkin patch fund-raiser with all proceeds benefiting this worthwhile organization.
Thousands of pumpkins surround the house; people and school groups stop by to take pictures in the patch and buy one that can range in size from resembling a small potato to forty pounds.

Homecoming ham hits the spot

After my aunt stopped being a teacher at Mt. Zion, my closest connection to the church was watching the congregation drive past my house every second and fourth Sunday as I reclined on the porch.
That is except for Homecoming, of course. I always made sure to visit the church on that Sunday each year, and I will confess that my mind was on more than the message — namely on the honey-glazed ham, fried chicken, etc. I knew was even then being placed on long, folding tables outside under the shade of nearby trees.

Tech theatre to show a little ‘W;t’a survivor, too,’” May recalled.

Sciro recalls how she planned to present the play a few years ago, but found it too painful amid the waves of grief following the deaths of both her mother and close friend from cancer.
“I think this show will make people become more reflective and realize ‘I don’t need to make that extra sale at work or stay and work those extra hours. I need to concentrate on things that really matter like family, friendship, love, compassion and empathy,’” Sciro said.

Cancer survivor plans awareness event

The program will be filled with testimonials, singing and a candle ceremony to honor survivors and those who died from cancer.
“We want to pay tribute to everyone who has ever had breast cancer,” Moss said. “Everybody who wants to give a testimony can; that helps everyone.”
Christina Griffin, community representative with the American Cancer Society, said Moss is educating the public each year through this program.
“She’s got an amazing amount of passion,” Griffin said. “Her audience has gotten larger every year.”

Tech hopes turnover woes are over

It was enough to drive the calmest and most composed of coaches or players to the nearest medicine cabinet for some Tylenol.
“Unbelievable,” Bicknell repeated several times as he headed toward Tech’s dressing room following the mistake-loaded (the Vandals lost two fumbles and had a pass picked off for a combined total of 11 turnovers).
“Horrible. I’ve never seen anything like it.
“Honestly, I don’t know what to say.”
So many mistakes would leave even Joan Rivers speechless.
When Tech had a resemblance of a scoring drive in the works, the TO would suddenly appear.

Awareness important

Those statistics are frightening, especially when we consider that anyone can be a victim of cancer. Your new co-worker. Your next door neighbor. Your mother. Your wife. Your daughter.
Early detection is essential to increasing the chances of beating the disease, but many doctors suggest that a healthy lifestyle may actually help decrease one’s chances of getting cancer. Dr. Laura Campbell with Lincoln General Hospital emphasized the importance of eating a low-fat diet and exercising and added that the number of women who do not perform self-exams is startling.

Superstitious? Apparently I am

Trip and tear a hole in your new jeans? Yes, that was Friday the 13th. Make a bad grade on a test? Let me check the date...
However, I didn’t really worry last Friday, even though we had a story in the paper relating to people’s superstitious fear of the date and even though my husband’s last words to me before I left for work were, “Be careful. Remember what today is.” I didn’t double check to make sure my brakes were working, and I didn’t take some salt with me to throw over my shoulder just in case. I decided to act like it was a
normal, ordinary day...and see what happened.

Flags to find new resting place

Hawkins said he took a picture of the box and brought it back to Ernie Stevens, VFW post commander and director of the museum.
Ruston’s postmaster was able to find an old-fashioned, round-topped box which was donated. Stevens sanded and painted the box in patriotic colors, and Rapid Signs donated the decal and design work.
The box is located outside of the museum on Memorial Drive, and the VFW post will also be selling flags through the museum if someone wishes to buy a replacement flag.
Proceeds from the flag sales will benefit the VFW. Flags are nylon and are $30.
