Saints united Louisiana

However, something happened once the real season started. The men in black and gold began winning. They played a Monday Night Football game to reopen the Super Dome and beat the hated Falcons.
All of a sudden there was talk of the playoffs. The new guys actually performed as advertised. The entire state looked at the Saints as an example about what could happen if a team - or community, city or state — worked together as one: you could overcome adversity and come back stronger than ever.

Traveling the road back home

Let me explain. After leaving a restaurant in Bossier, we took East Texas Street through the core of the city to downtown Shreveport. Several places on that street filled me with such a sense of nostalgia that I decided my friends needed a tour.
“On your right is the Soap Opera where I did my laundry and got accosted by creeps.”
Next I pointed out the convenience store my mom, sisters and I got barbecue sandwiches every Tuesday one summer and the motel just up the street that was so “nice” that a trial is still ongoing, I think, about a murder that occurred there several years ago.

Rough night for Techsters

Or, egad, the sleepy six-of-17 production (that’s 35.8 percent) at the foul line.
Even with all of that, the Lady Techsters (8-10, 3-2) had the basketball in their possession with a mere 2.9 seconds left to play and trailing by only one (55-54) point.
But on an inbounds play, where it was designed to get the ball into senior center Ty Moore underneath, turnover No. 23 was officially recorded and the Wolf Pack (10-8, 4-1) swiped it to then run out the clock and leave with a milestone victory against the defending league champions.

Reading what publisher wrote

“With all the running around we’ve been doing, I haven’t had a chance to really examine or talk about our current residence, Lincoln Parish Park. It’s small, with just 33 sites. The camping area surrounds a 30-acre lake, which is ringed by a paved trail for walking. Most of the back-in sites are directly on the lake, as ours is, and the pull-throughs are very close also. At just $20 per night for full hookups, it’s a bargain.

Evacuation called for D’Arbonne area

“The weather service said up to four inches of rain could fall this weekend, creating possibly higher water levels on Lake D’Arbonne,” he said.
The additional rain could increase the lake level to more than 87 feet — over flood level.
Mark Smith, a spokesperson with the governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said the location in the most danger from flooding is the area east of Louisiana 15 and south of Louisiana 2.

Bulldogs’ comeback foils NMSU

McDowell, Richard and the rest of the ‘Dogs (5-12, 3-2) were also celebrating as if they had just struck the winning Powerball number.
Well, maybe a 73-71 upset victory over the Aggies is worth even more.
A senior guard from Pasadena, Texas, McDowell drilled in a career-high 33 points, including a game-winning three-pointer with 5.3 seconds remaining in overtime to help fuel one of the best “feel good”
victories in the program’s history.
This wasn’t just another Western Athletic Conference win.

Shorter school day is better way

Athletes will have more time to fit in both their studies and practice when they return from school. Additionally, students who participate in band or choir or partake in theatrical productions can find a few peaceful minutes in the day before diving into study and rehearsal.

In search of the wrong man

Responses to the announcement were read on air. A few female listeners named men’s unreasonably high expectations as the reason women choose to be single. One woman wrote that married women are expected to work full-time, act as full-time housekeepers and raise children. More than one man wrote that women are too superficial and picky about who they choose to marry, requiring men to be wealthy and “look like Brad Pitt” to be suitable marriage material.
