LPDC group commended

For quite some time, local government officials have been concerned about the deficit at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
They all agree that criminals have to stay off the street, but keeping them imprisoned has cost the parish more than it had to spend on them. So, late in 2012, a jail study committee was formed to attempt to deal with the issue.
After doing extensive research, the committee came back in February to suggest that the Lincoln Parish Detention Center Commission either take back over the jail or allow the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office to do so.

Quinton Patton was in his usual comedy skit routine at Joe Aillet Stadium Tuesday afternoon.
He clowned around with former Louisiana Tech University teammates, grabbed a Shreveport television announcer’s microphone and began ad-libbing to anyone who would listen and urged a sportswriter to ask when big offensive lineman Jordan Mills was going to get his next pedicure.
Vintage Patton, to be sure.
But when instructed to go through a plethora of drills and tests on the school’s annual “Pro Day,” he was as serious and focused as a NASA engineer studying soil samples from Mars.

in

Louisiana Tech University derailed Grambling State University’s recent success against in-state teams on Tuesday night.
Entering the meeting of the Interstate Highway 20 rivals, the Tigers (9-14) had captured three consecutive victories against Louisiana foes, including a 4-0 shutout of the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
But the G-Men’s growl was silenced with a combined five-hit “pitch by committee” performance from the Bulldogs (11-16), who bounced back from two weekend home losses to new Western Athletic Conference opponent Seattle University.
