D.A.R.E. does great service for community

That’s why the work done by Cmdr. Kirk Taylor of the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office and his crew of Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) instructors is so important. They present information — in a format and style our kids can relate to and understand — that explains the danger of such destructive behavior as drug and alcohol abuse. They are a vital cog in the war to keep our children safe.

All things end; Potter, too

By the end of chapter two of that first book, I was hooked. I have expressed my love for reading; however, my passion for this particular series is still unmatched. It has inspired my writing, my reading and even new friendships.
I could not keep away from anything concerning the young wizard, though in fact it was his red-headed side-kick, Ron, who had stolen my heart (if you’ve never been in love with a fictional character, you would not understand, if you’ve ever read a Jane Austen novel, then, of course you will).

Rike, Wilson honored in WAC

Earning such honors for the past year were quarterback Colt Brennan and volleyball player Kanoe Kamana’o, both representing the University of Hawaii.
Rike, a standout in baseball, was nominated as Tech’s top male athlete and track and field star Wilson was selected as the top female athlete.
Now playing in the Colorado Rockies’ minor league system, Rike earned the Player of the Year honors in the WAC after leading the conference in home runs (20) and being one of the top 15 ranked hitters (.346 average).

Roads lead way to growth

This threatens our ability to compete with the other southeastern states for economic development opportunities. Several times over the past couple of years Louisiana has lost business opportunities with high-paying jobs to Alabama and Mississippi, primarily because of a lack of infrastructure in place.
Speaking on the public affairs series “Focus on Louisiana,” Louisiana’s Department of Transportation and Development Secretary Johnny Bradberry said the state has a $14 billion backlog of infrastructure projects that need to be funded to keep the state competitive.

Cheer stereotypes O-U-T

They are cheerleaders.
But that’s not all they are.
Cheerleaders today must fend off some of the most undesirable stereotypes out there, spread the importance of a positive attitude and do a triple backhand whatever at the same time.
It’s probably an understatement to say they have to be tough. And for those cheerleading hopefuls, the competition to make the team will only become more of a challenge as basket tosses and tumbles on a mat replace hair tosses and perfecting eyelashes to bat.

Saints’ mania is alive, well

And not just on the field.
“The best part of the Saints is that they’re just a bunch of good guys,” observed another fan watching Sunday afternoon’s drills. “Around here, you don’t have to worry about a Michael Vick showing up as trouble. Coach Payton wouldn’t stand for it, anyway.”
He sure wouldn’t.
Considered as much a factor in the Saints’ march to an NFC South title and one-game shy of a Super Bowl berth last year was the discipline and no-nonsense façade that the former Dallas Cowboys’ assistant applied to the team.

The alumni association, joined in the suit by multiple parties including Grambling Mayor Martha Andrus , filed the suit originally in 2006, alleging violations of constitutional, federal and state law in the handling of the university and on allegations of discrimination.

Wobbleheads create attention

The curved metal body of the Wobblehead gives the lure its name; it wobbles side to side and gives the plastic worm tail an enticing swimming motion which resembles a favorite food for a foraging bass, a small swimming snake. Remember the last time you saw a snake swimming across the water? That’s the exact image you get when you reel in a Wobblehead.

GSU, town should find compromise

On the one hand, town officials believe they have been slighted by those in charge at Grambling State University. They argue GSU leaders have failed to consult with them on building plans at the school. They also claim they are owed permit fees for some of those buildings. They say GSU president Horace Judson is intent on getting rid of everyone in his administration with a tie to the town.
