A grand marshal has been selected and a title sponsor named for the annual Christmas parade that will roll through downtown Ruston at 6 p.m. Thursday.
Erma Hudson, who has lived in Ruston since 1949, will lead the 2011 Volvo Rents Christmas Parade, presented by the Ruston Jaycees.
This year, the Jaycees sought nominees for the grand marshal position. Parade Chair Timothy Bush said there were about 10-12 nominations, and it was a tough choice because all were exceptional leaders who were heavily involved in the community. However, Hudson stood out from the pack.

Addressing the issue

Residents weigh in on alcohol ordinance
5-1 jump.jpg

As the Ruston City Council prepares for a vote regarding Sunday alcohol sales in restaurants in the city limits, Ruston residents have also been weighing in on the idea.
The amendments to Ruston’s alcohol ordinance were introduced at the November council meeting, and if the aldermen pass the ordinance Monday, the Sunday sale of alcohol with meals would be legal from the hours of noon to midnight.
The amendments would also allow for the restaurants to remain open until 2 a.m. on New Year’s, but not the rest of the year.

Gathering up notes along the sports trail while wondering how long it’s going to take to beciome accustomed to the Houston Astros being in the American League:
• I will be surprised if Louisiana Tech and Grambling State don’t sweep Coach of the Year awards for their respective conferences.
Sonny Dykes of the Bulldogs and Doug Williams of the Tigers are the odds-on favorites to earn the top honors for the Western Athletic Conference and Southwestern Athletic Conference, respectively.

Tech ends three-game losing streak
7.jpg

An early season losing streak for Louisiana Tech University’s basketball Bulldogs is over.
Led by the season-best 19 points of freshman guard Raheem Appleby, the ’Dogs (3-4) halted their three-game losing streak with a 73-71 victory over I-20 rival Louisiana-Monroe at Fant-Ewing Coliseum Saturday night.
Tech had a six-point (72-66) advantage with just under 30 seconds left in the game, but the Warhawks (1-7) got to within one point (72-71) on a 3-point field goal by guard Fred Brown and back-to-back free throws from guard Charles Wineborne with 4.4 seconds remaining.
But the Bulldogs clinched the win when forward-center Romario Souza made a free throw with 3.6 seconds to go; the Warhawks got the basketball down court on the follow-up possession, but missed a short jump shot in the final second of play.
