Bulldogs edged by ULM, 10-9

The game-winning run went ULM’s way in almost the same manner as Tech’s Friday night decision, where a balk gave the Bulldogs the necessary one-run differential.
This time, the Warhawks got the edge when pinch-run ner Brent Smith slid wide of a swipe tag by catcher Alex Richard after shortstop Dennis Winn had to make a quick throw to the plate,

Help keep parish fires under control

Those numbers doubled Saturday when a strong storm system with winds in excess of 40 miles per hour blew through the parish. Ford and his volunteer army of firefighters responded to call after call: as soon as one grass fire was put out, another call would come, then the winds would reignite the ones that were thought to be out.

Area can give heart, sole

Luckily Ruston Parks and Recreation is teaming up with Soles4Souls, Inc., which is headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., during the month of March to help relieve me and area residents of their unwanted foot apparel.
Two collection bins will be set up at RPAR’s James Street office for our convenience.
Ashlynn Shell, recreation coordinator for RPAR, said she was cruising the Internet and found the Web site and their unique ideas about helping those in need.

Storms strike Lincoln Parish

Tuitele said she was “shocked” when she saw the damage caused by the tree.
“I didn’t know what to do,” Tuitele said as she wiped tears from her eyes. “I thought it was just a little tree that had fallen through one of the back rooms; I didn’t know that it had cut my home in half.”
The large oak tree, which fell almost dead center of the white,
wood-framed house, shattered the glass out of most of the windows. It also caused another worry for Tuitele.
“Both of my dogs are still in the house,” she said. “I don’t know if they are OK.”

’Dogs outlast I-20 rival

“That’s the first time I’ve won a game that way,” said Simoneaux about the balk-providing decision. “Really, you have to feel for any pitcher that does that because that’s a tough way to lose. The kid had really pitched well and then to have that happen.”
But yes, “Sim” and his squad will gladly accept the victory, particularly since it came a few days after the Bulldogs (11-4) had their nine-game winning streak crunched with a 14-3 tumble to Nicholls State.

Friendship ties renewed by visit

After putting the paper the bed, I scurried over to Lincoln General Hospital, navigated my way through the maze of twists and turns (I’m convinced that if you want to hide from the law, you could do so in a hospital — most of the time those who work there don’t know where they are), and finally ended up outside of room 148.
I tapped lightly on the heavy wooden door — there was no response. Since the door was slightly ajar, I peeked in: Marna appeared to be sleeping peacefully.

Reneau provides stability

Each year since the 1970s the New York Yankees have been tabbed to contend for a trip to the World Series — all under the sometimes controversial leadership of George Steinbrenner.
The common thread running through these championship teams is stability at the top. In each instance, players did not have to wonder what the next year would bring. That made it easier for them to concentrate on the task at hand — being the best in their field.

Reneau celebrates 20 years

“I think some of our (major) accomplishments have been the selective admissions success at Louisiana Tech, the research progress and doctoral programs, and the promise of greater economic development in the future.”
Reneau, who received his bachelor’s and master’s of science degrees in chemical engineering from Tech and his doctorate at Clemson University in South Carolina, returned to Tech after his education as an assistant professor of chemical engineering.
