RHS mission: halt Rebels’ streak

In one of the state’s best rivalries, one that invariably carries with it special meaning each and every fall, Ruston and West Monroe lock up at Rebel Stadium starting at 7 p.m.
This one is for top honors in District 1-5A, a championship ring to be worn by the survivor.
Both will walk out on the artificial turf of one of the best prep facilities in the countries with equal 5-0 marks against league opponents.
On the Bearcats’ behalf, it’s also a chance to wipe out 19 straight seasons of L’s against the No. 1 ranked team in the state’s highest classification.

Danger: Driver on phone ahead

This scenario sounded familiar. Sometimes while waiting at a traffic light, I witness three or four people go by who appear to be in deep mobile conversation while driving. A few weeks ago, as I took photos of a wreck, a local reserve officer recognized me from The Ruston Daily Leader, and asked, “Do you see that?” as drivers went by the scene with ears stuck to their cellular phones. “That’s extremely dangerous.”

During a Tuesday media luncheon, sophomore defensive lineman Wes Day borrowed a famous quote from American political journalist and scholar Thomas Paine to describe the Bulldogs’ current plight:
“These are the times that try men’s souls,” said the former Shreveport Captain Shreve star.
Then he added:
“But through all of the negatives, we have to focus on the positives.
