Irby, Marna.jpg

Is there ever a time when life is not busy? Not around here, for sure. However, it is a tiny tad cooler, so we’re grateful for that.

Growing up in Michigan and playing in the marching band all throughout school, tailgating was completely foreign to one Louisiana Tech professor.
Julie Holmes, an assistant professor of education, first moved to Ruston in October 1991.
“Ruston felt like home,” she said. “I had come down to visit after teaching in the Miami Beach area for a few years after I had gotten my bachelor’s degree. And it was just a good fit. Ruston felt like the place I had grown up.”

At the other end of the line, there was a momentary silence.
George “Petey” Thornton had just been told that Scotty Robertson, his basketball coach at Louisiana Tech University, had passed away Thursday morning.
“Oh gosh, no,” replied Thornton from his hometown of Kirkwood, Mo. “What a great loss to everyone at Louisiana Tech, in Ruston and to those who knew and loved him. I know, for myself, he was more than a coach. He was a mentor and friend. He is going to be greatly missed. What a great man.”
