New Year’s plans spark caution

Lt. Danny Cross with the Lincoln Parish Fire District No. 1, said the fire department would most likely be called on at least five calls involving fireworks that had gone awry during New Year’s Eve festivities.
“Be extremely careful with fireworks,” Cross said. “The biggest (fire prevention) is parental supervision and watching the children closely. That way, if a small fire does get started, they can put it out quickly.”

Dooley looks like a good fit

Dooley brings a tremendous work ethic, passion, discipline and sense of responsibility to the Tech post, one that became vacant for the first time in nearly a decade earlier this month.
He is being assigned the role of helping renew the excitement and interest in Tech’s Western Athletic Conference, NCAA Division 1-A affiliated program.
So far, so good, too.
It wasn’t long after Dooley was introduced to Tech fans and media representatives that university officials reported a huge pickup in season ticket sales.

Resolutions clobbered by cupcakes

The resolution list I have compiled is probably not vastly different from that of many of you. However, whereas some of you might be looking to better yourselves, I’m just hoping to sidestep waking up broke, homeless, in prison with bigger, meaner girls or unable to squeeze into the snug workout pants my husband gave me for Christmas.
