Stolen purse raises questions

One of my more popular options was that of a professional mascot. I admit, this was due in no small part to the immense amount of fun Zwolle’s hawk was having performing the Hokey Pokey.
Right foot, left, etc., he was really having a ball, although he did decline to try the Cha-Cha Slide.
“I could definitely do that,” I thought to myself. Talk about a stress-free job.
Less than an hour later, I was considering another potential career — that of a detective.

Child-raising falls on all

Lincoln Parish Superintendent of Schools Danny Bell, school board members, Louisiana Tech University faculty and students, parish school principals and teachers, representatives from faith-based organizations and the Methodist Children’s Home and a number of parents filled seats at the Ruston Civic Center.
The turnout for “Love and Logic Toolbox for Parents and Teachers” was acceptable. But it could have been better.

’Dogs battle Clemson tonight

After logging trips to Madison, Wisc., and Honolulu and points in between, a short flight to Atlanta and bus ride to Clemson, S.C., for tonight’s 6 p.m. (CST) first round game in the National Invitation Tournament doesn’t seem so tough.
“Being on the road doesn’t worry us anymore,” said senior point guard Daevon Haskins. “This is our 21st game on the road. We’re used to it by now.”

Indian festivities take place at Tech

The “Discover India” exhibition began Monday evening from 4-7 p.m. with an outside Indian bazaar selling Indian food, offering Henna tattoos and displaying some of India’s colorful attire.
“It’s a good, first-hand experience if you don’t get a chance to go to India,” said Morgan Tarpley, a student at Tech. “The colors are so vibrant. That’s what stood out. I want to touch everything.”
That, of course, was the point.

Taste of India welcome in Ruston area

A little of India has come to Louisiana Tech University.
Vibha Jani is the program chair of interior design of the School of Architecture and spent a portion of last summer researching India’s diverse culture and architecture. She came back to Tech with a desire to share her knowledge on the rich history and social aspects of the
Indian people and is largely responsible for the “Discover India” series to allow the community to have a taste of the country.

Remembering life of a matriarch

When a friend’s loved one dies, you think of death, but you really can’t imagine that happening in your family. You don’t want to imagine that.
It happened to us this week.
Myrtice Kyle, matriarch of the Kyles, Neals, Reddings, Rasts and many others, left this life March 6. She was my husband’s great-grandmother and a sweet, wise lady.

Techsters will ‘dance’ in Denver

“We’re one of the teams in the tournament and we’ve got as good a chance of winning it as anybody else,” said junior forward Ty Moore. “The main thing is that we’re in the tournament again and now the main focus is to go out and win every game we play.”
If this is mid-March, it must mean national tourney time again for the Lady Techsters (26-4) and the Western Athletic Conference champions made it 25-of-25 in the NCAA’s Big Dance by winning Saturday afternoon’s final league tourney game and then being unveiled last night as the No. 11 seeded entry in the San Antonio.

Exhibit offers glimpse of India

Jani is the program chair of interior design of the School of Architecture at Tech, and she is one of the key coordinators for the “Discover India” exhibition, which begins today and lasts until April 11.
“The idea is to give awareness of what India is about and show the architecture and culture, the rituals and festivities and architecture — how people live,” Jani, who is teaching a class on India this quarter, said. “We have similar cultures here in Louisiana and in India. Southerners are known for their Southern hospitality, and guests in India are treated like gods.”

Tasters’ treat delights crowd

The tasters’ treat which featured samples from area restaurants was complemented by music from the Ain’t Misbehavin’ Band, a silent auction and door prizes. While most of those in attendance stayed only a portion of the three-hour event, many voiced the intention to stay the entire evening.
Downtown Delights chairman Beth Craig said the opportunity to sample offerings from so many restaurants at the same time and in the same location with the added attraction of a repeat performance by the Ain’t Misbehavin’ Band kept with the tradition of the event from last year.

Techsters claim WAC tourney title

Not even when the Lady Techsters found themselves down 8-0 less than five minutes into the action, didn’t make their initial points until the 13:26 mark or when they finally took the lead at 17-14 with five and half minutes to go in the opening half.
Sooner or later, the league’s regular season champions and top 25 nationally ranked club knew they would get their act going and live up to their No. 1 tournament seed.
