Is it a good move for Tech?

I don’t have a problem against any of the letters in and of themselves, nor do I have a problem with the majority of the combinations they spell. However, when you put L before S and follow it up with a U, then we have a problem.
I only say this to let everyone know where I’m coming from before I start discussing a potential move by Louisiana Tech University from the University of Louisiana System into the LSU System.

’Dogs wrap up home schedule

Will it also be the final time for Paul Millsap to step out on the Thomas Assembly Center floor?
There’s been no official announcement as to just what the two-time national NCAA rebounding champion plans to do after this, his junior season, but there is the possibility that tonight’s 7 p.m. WAC meeting against Idaho (4-22, 1-13) might very well be the final opportunity for Tech fans to see him on the home court.

Scouts from around region gather for Pinewood Derby

On Friday night, members of Pack 59 squared off for a shot at District competition, leader Laura Ramsaur said.
“Each Cub Scout will race his car six times,” Ramsaur said. “His fastest time will count for competition. The top six races advance to the District race.”
Tiger Cub Thomas Strebeck, 6, had a cheerleader for the race — his 4-year-old brother, James. James said he thought his brother’s car would do well.
“It’s got a magic ingredient,” James said.

Allow voters to settle trash issue

On one side are those who believe the removal of trash bins located throughout our parish would help keep our roadways cleaner and safer, thus making Lincoln Parish a more attractive place for those looking for a place to start a new business. They lobby for curbside pickup of trash and say any costs would be negligible.

A little common sense please!

The Police Jury has served the parish well over the past two years, considering the fact that eight of 12 jurors were new to the office. For the most part, all of the jurors have done a good job gathering facts, studying the information and coming to conclusions that benefit our entire community.

Roads not safe site for joggers

I can’t for the life of me understand why a person would run on a U.S. highway — or any highway as far as that goes — at night.
Yet this was not the first time that we had witnessed a runner on Ruston’s roads running the risk of becoming road kill. Come rain, sleet or shine, daylight or dark, these fitness fanatics can be seen plodding our roadways, seemingly oblivious to the fact that there are 3,000 pound missiles, often driven by 15-year-old neophytes, sharing those same roadways.

Lewis heading to Hall

“He saw me that one time and then offered me a scholarship and I guess you’d say the rest is history,” Lewis told The Daily Leader earlier this week.
Was it ever.
Lewis went from being a little recruited player out of high school to one of the most successful wide receivers in college and professional history.

Simsboro advances to Sweet 16

The result was a 54-48 quarterfinal win that gave Simsboro (45-3) its third straight trip to Hammond for the Sweet 16.
As senior point guard Lyn Overall, who finished with 10 points and five rebounds, stepped to the free throw line with 8 seconds remaining in the game, the partisan Simsboro crowd began chanting, “Sweet 16!”
“It’s wonderful,” Overall said about the Sweet 16 berth. “Words can’t explain how I feel. We’re going to try to bring the title back to Simsboro.”
