Tech merger could be plus

Aswell, Taylor.jpg

As the years pass, I have started to realize a few things. For one, you are always learning, no matter what you are doing. Sure it may be learning something simple like, “Hey, maybe I shouldn’t eat all that fast food,” or “Maybe staying up past midnight wasn’t such a good idea,” but regardless, you are learning something new every day.
Another realization came across my mind the other day when I went and covered the meeting on the study results of a possible merger of Louisiana Tech University and Louisiana State University at Shreveport, and that thought was simple — grow or disappear.

Gallagher, Maggie.jpg

President Obama, you do not speak for women. Stop claiming — you and other Democrats — that when you try to ram abortion-inducing drugs and contraception mandates down the throats of religious charities, schools and health care institutions, you are speaking for women.
That’s the message of a new letter signed by hundreds of women at womenspeakforthemselves.com. It was organized by George Mason Law professor Helen Alvare and lawyer-turned-stay-at-home mom Kim Daniels.

Before the bulldozer came, it was a wonderful place to play. It had tall grass that I could stomp down to hide from my imaginary foes.

The impact of that life-scarring event was not lost on a 9-year-old former fort builder
I sat on the kitchen counter so I could see the family moving in. If I was going to sacrifice a perfectly good fort for them, the first thing I wanted to see was if they had any kids my age — preferably boys, although pretty girls would do.

Tech rolls up 26-point victory margin
022412 Souza Inside C.jpg

Romario Souza had the best single-game scoring performance of his college career.
So did Robby Price.
And appropriately enough, Louisiana Tech University produced its largest victory margin of the season with a 75-49 Western Athletic Conference blowout of San Jose State in front of 1,760 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center on Thursday night.
Souza, a 6-10 and 245-pound senior forward-center from Mias Gerais, Brazil, wrecked the Spartans’ defensive efforts inside with a game-leading 19 points and also shared the night’s top honors with teammate Brandon Gibson for most rebounds with eight.
