Every year residents can see the men of the area gearing up for football season, but what about the women?
Louisiana Tech head football coach Sonny Dykes, along with his wife Kate, will be putting on the second annual Pigskins and Pearls event today at Squire Creek.
Kate Dykes said the idea came from a women’s clinic that Texas Tech would host through the athletic department before football season started.

Good scores benefit entire community

Lincoln Parish School System freshmen from the 2010-11 school year stepped up to the high-stakes testing plate and hit a home run. In each subject tested, more than 85 percent of students received a passing grade in the new End of Course exam format.
This new format, rather than testing them on overall math or English skills like the GEE, tests students at the end of a particular course such as algebra, geometry or English II.
This was the first year that the test was used to calculate students’ final grades and to determine graduation eligibility. And, they passed with flying colors.

Parish website full of resources

LAURA NEW.jpg

There is a wealth of information that can be learned by browsing the web.
I’ve known this is true for some time in the case of locating information about things such as studies and research.
But when I went to a seminar at the Lincoln Parish Library this week, I also gained a better grasp of how much local information is available online. Much can be accessed on the Lincoln Parish GIS website, www.lincolnparish.org.

The good and bad news

in
Juneau, Dan.jpg

The bad news is the U.S. credit rating was recently downgraded by Standard and Poor’s. In essence, that rating agency said the soundness of our government’s finances is more risky than that of nations like England, France, Canada and Australia. The good news is that, directly in the wake of the downgrade, money poured into U.S. Treasury bonds from all over the world. Why? Because world financial institutions — particularly in Europe — are under pressure and investors, in spite of the downgrade, still think the U.S. government-backed securities are the safest of safe havens.

Studying 'sweet economics'

in
Brooks, Brenda.jpg

It is definitely that time again. On Thursday, the day before school started, Ally and I began to go over the “back to school” list and drive to every store that listed a sale. After shopping at four different stores, I was exhausted. Ally is one of those children that must have a certain color of notebook (purple) and “just the right” pack of pens. So when I see teachers with items that I have to go to a certain store for, as it is the only store to purchase a Tug pencil sharpener, I am stomping my foot like a child, exasperatingly saying, “Come on!”

Tech’s Franklin likes walk-ons

Offensive coordinator believes area is scholarships in making

Sometimes, there’s potential “gold” hidden in the football recruiting fields.
And it doesn’t always have to do with those star-loaded signees who dazzle the recruiting services or head coaches.
Walk-ons have their place, too.
“I love walk-ons,” said Louisiana Tech University offensive coordinator Tony Franklin.
