Mulkey cheering on Makenzie

It’s the famed Domino’s squad out of New Orleans, whose head coach is veteran leader Charles Domino, who was also at the helm back when Mulkey and a fellow Lady Techsters’ player was also on the squad.
“Yes, Janice and I played for the Domino’s team,” reflected Mulkey.
“And here it is, Makenzie playing for them now. They have always done a good job there and it’s nice to know that she (Makenzie) can carry on a little tradition in the family.”

Be aware of children when driving

Normally we are able to drive along our city streets during the business day without the fear of a small child running out into the street or a teenage driver focused on their CD player or cell phone instead of the road.
Most of the time our biggest worry is whether or not we can beat the next stop light or get across the railroad tracks that bisect downtown Ruston before the next train blows through.
But during the summer, we must take closer precautions for area youngsters.

Remember soliders every day

On a day like today, Memorial Day, who or what would you want to remember?
With all of the Memorial Day barbecues and outdoor events, it may be easy for some in Ruston and Lincoln Parish to get caught up in the festivities the day can bring and forget those the day is meant to commemorate.
But each of us can do something for soldiers who are stationed overseas, thousands of miles away from the things that used to comfort them.
And we can do it from right here in Ruston with the help of a couple of community organizations.

“According to Bristo, Jackson took him against his will from the Plaza to his home on Garr Road and struck him a couple of times in an attempt to empty his pockets and get him to disclose his PIN number,” Clark said. “Bristo was then led outside to the back of the house and the suspect said he was going to kill him. Bristo escaped by running through the woods and made his way to the police station.”
Jackson was arrested Wednesday morning on warrants charging kidnapping and armed robbery. He was booked into the Lincoln Parish Detention Center where he is being held on $150,000 bond.

Bradshaw named B’s best

Bradshaw had a 7-1 record, 1.13 earned run average and 97 strikeouts in 49 innings as a pitcher and batted .521 with eight home runs and 44 runs driven in during the regular season.
How could those nifty numbers keep him from winning Outstanding Player honors among all players in his class?
Well, they didn’t.
Bradshaw is the recipient of that award, as voted on by members of the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
He’s also joined by two of his teammates on the first unit: senior catcher Courtney Sharp and junior outfielder/pitcher T.J. Brister.

Soldiers are our country’s heroes

It was the constant reminder of how many of our young people were being sacrificed in a war that proved to be unwinnable, a war that had been fought for centuries with no discernible winner or loser, that led to a large number of Americans opposing that war.
Although more soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines were killed in World War II, that battle was seen as a defense of our shores — we were brutally attacked by an enemy intent on world domination, and it was our duty to defend our home.

Servicemen need our full support

From that start came what is known today as Memorial Day, set aside to honor all of America’s war dead. The last Monday of May was designated by Congress in 1971 as the official Memorial Day holiday.
Tomorrow, friends, family members, service members and grateful Americans will gather for ceremonies at cemeteries all across our nation to pay homage to those who made possible our freedom with their blood.

Veterans’ celebrations start early at Arbor

Third Judicial District Judge Jay McCallum, who was the guest speaker for the event, said veterans and American soldiers were an important factor in our freedom.
“We owe so much to those who gave all,” McCallum said. “The freedoms and liberties we enjoy in this country were hard won and are due to our veterans.”
Jerry Fletcher, executive director of the Arbor and Terrace, said representatives from most of the military branches were present for the ceremony.
