Dean, Millsap put on a show for Tech

And another might have possibly exited his Thomas Assembly Center appearances in a similar fashion.
For sure, ex-Ruston High School star Corey Dean won’t be returning to the ‘Dogs, but he’ll definitely have a nice way to remember his last game on the home court.
The shooting guard fired in a game-leading 22 points and reached the coveted 1,000-point plateau for a career in a 74-49 rout over Idaho before 2,815 fans.
Then there was the equally excellent play of Paul Millsap, the former Grambling High School who might OR might not have ended his home career with the ‘Dogs.

Mobile unit helps agents communicate

Thanks to the recent acquisition of a mobile command post, made possible by $58,000 in grant funds from the Department of Homeland Security, parish law enforcement agents, along with area fire and first responders, can now better serve the citizens of Lincoln Parish.
Once the unit is online, it will be available to anyone employed in law enforcement, fire rescue or other emergence response, Ruston Police Patrol Commander Capt. Bill Davis said.

Sports enthusiasm grows

I think more than half of Ruston just gasped.
So my husband works for Tech’s sports media department. So I married into a family that absolutely loves sporting events. So I don’t. So what?
Let me first say that I know basically nothing about sports. Kyle can go on for days about statistics, game plays and players, but as for me, I am just about clueless. Therefore, if I get some terminology a little mixed up, please forgive me.

Parish gets new mobile command post

Homeland Security grant funds were available and could have led to interagency squabbling. Instead, the various agencies discussed what was best for the parish and decided to invest $58,000 in a state-of-the-art mobile command center, Ruston Police Patrol Commander Capt. Bill Davis said.
“Once its online, we can use it anytime,” Davis said. “We’re taking all of our radio equipment out of the old one and remounting it in the new unit. The new unit will be open to any law enforcement agency, fire department, and emergency responder in the parish.”

Authority’s work comes together

Now all that hard work and planning could be coming together within the next month.

Is it a good move for Tech?

I don’t have a problem against any of the letters in and of themselves, nor do I have a problem with the majority of the combinations they spell. However, when you put L before S and follow it up with a U, then we have a problem.
I only say this to let everyone know where I’m coming from before I start discussing a potential move by Louisiana Tech University from the University of Louisiana System into the LSU System.

’Dogs wrap up home schedule

Will it also be the final time for Paul Millsap to step out on the Thomas Assembly Center floor?
There’s been no official announcement as to just what the two-time national NCAA rebounding champion plans to do after this, his junior season, but there is the possibility that tonight’s 7 p.m. WAC meeting against Idaho (4-22, 1-13) might very well be the final opportunity for Tech fans to see him on the home court.

Scouts from around region gather for Pinewood Derby

On Friday night, members of Pack 59 squared off for a shot at District competition, leader Laura Ramsaur said.
“Each Cub Scout will race his car six times,” Ramsaur said. “His fastest time will count for competition. The top six races advance to the District race.”
Tiger Cub Thomas Strebeck, 6, had a cheerleader for the race — his 4-year-old brother, James. James said he thought his brother’s car would do well.
“It’s got a magic ingredient,” James said.

Allow voters to settle trash issue

On one side are those who believe the removal of trash bins located throughout our parish would help keep our roadways cleaner and safer, thus making Lincoln Parish a more attractive place for those looking for a place to start a new business. They lobby for curbside pickup of trash and say any costs would be negligible.

A little common sense please!

The Police Jury has served the parish well over the past two years, considering the fact that eight of 12 jurors were new to the office. For the most part, all of the jurors have done a good job gathering facts, studying the information and coming to conclusions that benefit our entire community.
