Dubach chief asks for help

Croxton said he believes the prowlers are trying to scare residents or looking for items of value to steal.
“I live alone — what would I do?” said resident Charlain Hanna, who described to the council several recent incidents that led her to call police. “I’ve never been afraid until just recently.”
Although Croxton is on call 24 hours a day, he emphasized the need for overnight law enforcement in Dubach.
“The extra presence is really what I’m looking for,” he said.

From our local municipal government all the way up to Washington, D.C., citizens are guaranteed access to records and information. It’s not only our right, it’s the founding principle of our country — a government of, by and for the people.

KGRM­— music, much more

Despite the impressive capabilities it boasts, its beginnings were meager. Evans said the station came about as a part of the speech and theater department, and if she had to contribute its establishment to anyone, it would be Allen Williams.
“He worked very hard to get it set up, and it was used for students to train to get a job in the professional arena,” she said.
Williams, former head of the speech and theater department, said KGRM was established in approximately 1960 or 1961 by George L. Wesley, former instructor in the department.

Students urged to ‘Get In’

“It’s an urgent matter,” Director of Media Relations Ralph Wilson said about getting students, faculty and staff members signed up with FirstCall. “The process will be efficient in the event there is an emergency of some sort.”
Thus, the university wants campus-wide participation. Wilson said GSU needs 50 percent of the student body to be on board for FirstCall to be completely effective, though it is far from that as of late.

Bulldogs sweep past Skyhawks

Highlighting a 10-hit offense for the Bulldogs was a grand slam home run by sophomore outfielder Chris Bohannon and a solo homer by junior shortstop Nick Grunenwald.
Between that tandem, five hits and five runs batted in were produced.
Making for an even bumpier landing by the Skyhawks were five errors. In the ninth inning, when UTM botched two plays, a creative Tech student located in the apartments back of centerfield hurled a huge “boot” attached to a cord out on to the field. Then reeled it back in just in case there were any more mishaps in the club’s visit to J.C. Love Field.

Original art worth the cost

Original artwork is a one-of-a-kind composition that an artist has actually put his brush to and has spent many long hours working on. Reproductions are customarily mass-produced copies of an original. Generally, you will not find authentic paintings or sculptural works at the local mall or chain retailer.
Jacqueline Cochran, owner of By the Alley Art and Gift Shop, believes that many people are not used to having the opportunity to buy genuine art.
Indeed, when I explained what an original was to my mother, she asked in a rather exasperated tone, “Well, where can I find that?”
