“Do you feel as if your height might be a negative?” a representative from a league franchise might ask of the former Ruston High School and LSU star.

Roads not garbage bins

To people who reside here or drive in to view the parish’s towns and cities, displays of trash are an unwelcome decoration. Visitors are given the impression that residents are lazy, careless or don’t clean up after themselves. Medicine bottles, cigarette butts, soda cans, food packages and even clothing are among the items some people seem to believe belong on the ground.

Arson suspected in fires at GSU’s Pinchback Hall

City of Grambling and Lincoln Parish firefighters responded to two calls Monday afternoon at GSU’s Pinchback Hall. The first call came in to GSU police at 12:05 p.m., followed by a second call at 2:44 p.m., Sgt. Freddie Peterson said.
Peterson said investigators are treating the two fires, which happened on different floors, as well as another fire last week, as separate incidents.
However, they believe all of the fires are connected.
The first two fires occurred when someone lit paper in a trash can. Those two fires were put out by fire extinguishers.
