“Square your shoulders, put your chin in the air and stroll by like you don’t hear it,” Faircloth said. “If you stop and challenge it, you are likely to bring more such behavior.”

“There are a lot of elderly people and widow women in that area,” said Helen Young, spokesperson for the Rock Corner/Mineral Springs group.
“It puts a lot of hardship on them to carry their trash to a megasite. I have a petition that has been signed by 150-plus people. We are very upset and angry about it.”

The pen pushes over bulldozer

Take, for example, my second brother. Courtney, who plies his trade as a logger, rarely misses an opportunity to tell me how easy my job is, since as he puts it, all I do is sit behind a desk all day. According to him, his job is far more difficult and never in a million years would I be able to walk a mile in his shoes — or better yet, drive a mile on his Caterpillar.

Techsters: let a new streak begin

Given the long running success of the Techsters, their 6-0 lifetime record against the Aggies (all but one of which had resulted in winning margins of 13 or more points) and recent domination of the all-conference teams, no one in his right mind would have envisioned this coming.

WalkAmerica marches closer

Other premature babies have not been so fortunate. Premature birth is the No. 1 cause of infant mortality, and one in four babies in North Louisiana are born premature. This is double the nationwide percentage of one in eight. Money raised from WalkAmerica will, among other projects, go to funding research for preventing premature births, educating women about the signs of pre-term labor and providing support to families of babies in intensive care.
