“My wife and I both went to ULM,” said the Monroe mayor here Friday afternoon. “Our two daughters, when one was six and the other nine, both said they were going to Grambling.
“So our family will be rooting for different sides, although I love both of these schools and am looking forward to seeing them play on the gridiron again this fall.”

A road well traveled

Speeding, narrow street concerns residents of Barnett Springs Street
013011 Barnett Springs Drive web.jpg

A few residents living on Barnett Springs Street are concerned about pedestrians and cyclists who travel the roadway.
They say the state-owned highway is too narrow and hilly, and most motorists travel well above the posted speed limit of 25 miles per hour.
“I would say the most significant problem is people speeding,” said Edward Bell, who has lived on the street for more than five years. “Almost all the time, cars are going 35, 40, 50 or 55 miles per hour. And probably 80-85 percent of the traffic does not slow down at all when they pass by pedestrians.”

Tech, GSU facing potential program cuts

in

Grambling State and Louisiana Tech universities have seen their fare share of slicing and dicing to their budgets over the past two years due to the state’s financial problems.
Now they probably have to do a little cutting of their own, although not necessarily for budgetary reasons.
The Board of Regents announced earlier this week that more than 450 academic programs at Louisiana colleges are at risk of termination due to low-completion rates.

Adding up to fun learning

New Tech @ Ruston students bringing math to life
013011 New Tech 1 web.jpg

New Tech @ Ruston students were charged — by a little animated talking cat — to make learning math grade level expectations a fun experience. Students presented their projects to classmates, parents and community members on Friday.
The cat, designed by their teacher Daryl Savage, told students they were to create children’s stories that teach several math concepts related to probability, patterns, trends and central tendencies. Students then combined those math skills with audio/visual techniques. Savage said the projects also required a great deal of critical thinking, because students had to find or come up with stories that demonstrate the concepts.
Some students used popular stories like “Cinderella,” “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” or “Hansel and Gretel,” while others came up with their own stories.
