During the first Operation Paper Recycling Day, held in October, City Environmental Services Manager Camille Mize said 3.52 tons — or 7,040 pounds — of waste that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill were collected.

Kerry Rupp didn’t expect anything less than a tough battle from the University of Louisiana-Monroe Saturday night and that’s exactly what he got.
“Any time you have rivalries playing each other, it’s going to be a hard fought game,” said the Louisiana Tech University head coach. “They scrapped hard against us and it took a great effort on the part of our guys to get this win.
“Every game is an important game, but it’s always a little more special and significant when you play schools in your region. So it’s a good win for us.”
