One Ruston family was jubilant on Saturday as they broke ground and began the journey to owning their very first home.
Building LaQuanta Hargrove and her family a new home is part of the annual habiTech project, which gives Louisiana Tech University architecture students a chance to get out of the classrooms and into the real world. They work with the family and the North Central Louisiana Habitat for Humanity organization to design and build a family a home each year. This is the 20th house built by the local Habitat for Humanity group, and the seventh built in conjunction with HabiTech.

Lincoln Parish residents are slated to vote on two tax proposals this spring to aid the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Mike Stone said he is seeking the public’s support to help keep the community safe and preserve the quality of life in Lincoln Parish by voting “yes” on two tax measures in a special election set for April 21.
The first measure is a renewal of the 7.83 mill property tax currently in effect in Lincoln Parish. This tax presently funds 40 percent of the Sheriff’s Office’s operating budget.

Celebrating diversity

in
International students share their cultures

On Tuesday night, at the “Multicultural Fair,” put on by the English Language Services students at Louisiana Tech University and held at the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center, the global community shrunk, bringing parish residents and students from nine different countries together.
The decorum set the mood: different nation’s flags lined the walls, foods emitted spicy smells not easily recognized by the senses and the song “We are the World” was on repeat.
All this accompanied people as they jet set from table to table, country-to-country to learn about the world around them from displays the students made.

Stover, Junkin could identify with wild endings

in
Davis, OK.jpg

Not long after the New York Giants and New England Patriots had captured their berths in Super Bowl XLVI did I immediately think of two former NFL players who just happened to have played collegiately at Louisiana Tech University.
One was Matt Stover.
The other was Trey Junkin.
As the final seconds ticked down on last weekend’s AFC and NFC title games, I couldn’t help but wonder what those two ex-Bulldogs were thinking, because you know they were watching those games just like millions of others around the nation.

8-1.jpg

The oh-so-close trademark was stamped on Louisiana Tech University’s basketball Bulldogs again Saturday night.
For the sixth straight time and No. 11 for this season, the ‘Dogs (11-11, 3-4) were involved in a game that was decided by four or fewer points.
This one was by two, 65-63, but might have unfortunately felt like 22, because of just how close Tech came to shocking Nevada (18-3, 7-0).
