Works created from Mardi Gras beads

For many people, Mardi Gras beads are nothing more than party favors, but for German–born artist, Stephan Wanger, they are a medium to create art.
“After my first Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans, I noticed the insane amount of beads that were thrown and hauled away at the cost of the taxpayer. Through research I learned that many cities celebrate Mardi Gras and that there is an enormous amount of waste. I couldn’t believe it. I started to use reclaimed Mardi Gras beads and glued them onto plastic planters,” Wanger said.
From that, Wanger’s art evolved.

Knowing the symptoms and treating SAD

in
Washington, Jerrilene.

Editor’s note: This is the second in a two-part column about seasonal affective disorder. The first part ran Nov. 19.
What are the symptoms of SAD?
Everyone feels sad sometimes. If you experience the loss of a friend or family member, it is normal to feel upset or depressed. If you break up with a boy or girl friend or struggle with other problems, it is common to feel sad. But if the sadness persists for weeks, especially if there is no apparent cause, this could be a sign of the depression that goes along with seasonal affective disorder.

Now it’s on to postseason play for Louisiana Tech University’s football program.
After a night of struggles on the West Coast Saturday night, that’s where the Bulldogs will now focus their efforts.
The regular season certainly didn’t finish in the manner that Tech had hoped for when the game against San Jose State (10-2, 5-1) at Spartans Stadium kicked off at 9:30 p.m., CDT.
Three turnovers in the second half and a night of inconsistency on defense helped send the Bulldogs (9-3, 4-2) to a 52-43 defeat.
