GSU family should come together

A recent meeting by Judson’s detractors shows just how little support these former employees and their supporters have. Barely 50 showed up at Mt. Zion Baptist Church to rehash the same issues this small group has complained about since December 2005 — admissions standards and layoffs.
Judson has continued to make decisions based on what is best for Grambling State University. He has not fallen prey to the heavy-handed pressure of Grambling University National Alumni Association president James Bradford.

Ruston, welcome to summer

One whiff of chlorine can really bring you back to a time of bright orange floaties, slimy sunscreen and watching swimsuited kid after swimsuited kid cannonball off of the high dive.
Ruston residents can relive these memories and more at Ruston Municipal Pool. The pool is the perfect place to bring the kids to cool down when the temperatures go up.

Expert: Service helps students

Foos gave the example of students volunteering in the community for a poetry class.
“Poetry springs from the heart,” she said. “If students are out in the community teaching poetry to eighth-grade inner city students, they would have experiences they would not have to write about otherwise.”
Foos’ visit was part of the Louisiana Campus Compact’s series designed to help faculty members develop courses with service components.
Valerie Fields, the director of LCC, said many organizations were looking for collegiate volunteers.

Creek’s White goes out in style

The senior outfielder collected three hits in four at bats, two of ‘em being doubles, and drove in two runs to help boost Creek to a 4-3 victory and qualification for the LHSAA’s annual state tournament.
It was just the type of gut-check, clutch performance that White became known for throughout her brilliant career, one that is now capped off with her being selected as Miss Softball on The Daily Leader 2006 All-Lincoln Parish squad.

Save Sparta under the sun

When washing you car, don’t let the water run constantly; either turn it off while you’re applying soap or use a spray nozzle on the end of the hose. You might think the amount of water you save is insignificant, but you’d be surprised how quickly that total adds up during the course of a year.

Radio ‘talking head’ should stick to sports

But Friday, one of the ESPN talking heads crossed the line. No, he didn’t take pot shots at my beloved New York Yankees or condemn one of my heroes. What Colin Cowherd did was much worse.
If you happened to miss the final 45 minutes of his show Friday, Cowherd spent that time explaining why the city of New Orleans should be left in a heap and not rebuilt.

Katrina funds in good hands

From the local funds there is a remainder of $9,324 which has now been donated to the Red Cross as the contributors were told would be done if there were any funds left.
“Before there was time for any structured type of relief effort, generous people just started trying to help,” said Mickey Mays, the Lincoln Parish Police Jury president during the disaster. “We opened the Ruston Civic Center basically because it seemed to be our only option at the time.

Dogs rank high in batting

The California Bulldogs (43-16, 18-6) are No. 1 in the WAC and No. 31 in the nation with a .316 mark.
But not that far behind are their Bulldogs’ counterparts from Lincoln Parish. Tech ended up with a .311 mark that leaves them as the runner-up in the league and No. 53 in the NCAA’s current report.
“They have a bunch of good hitters,” noted Sacramento State head coach John Smith after his club dropped a 14-9 decision to Tech in the conference tournament.
“From top to bottom, they were consistent and they’ve got several of those guys back for next year.”
