Tech, GSU going different routes

That’s the question confronting Tech and Grambling when they both play at home. The Bulldogs have a 6 p.m. meeting against Idaho at Joe Aillet Stadium, while the Tigers take on Alabama State at Robinson Stadium beginning at 2 p.m.
It’s the last time both parish clubs will be on their own turf on the same Saturday this season.
For Tech, a “must win” situation has arrived in the nine-member WAC. In a late Saturday night game against Hawaii in Honolulu, the Bulldogs fell 24-14, marking the second road loss in as many tries against a league opponent this season.

Jenkins in at QB

“You can’t throw all of the blame on Taylor because everybody is in this together, but we felt that a change was needed at quarterback,” coach Derek Dooley said at his weekly media luncheon. “I’m not one who wants to get into one of those ‘who’s at quarterback?’ situations every week, but we believe this is the best thing to do in order to hopefully get our offense moving in the right direction.

The hungry need our help

As a community, we have a responsibility to help. Belts are tighter everywhere, but some can still afford to give, even a little.
Here in Lincoln Parish, there are opportunities to help our fellow residents who are struggling more than we are.

Students receive tips for success

Eight years after her graduation, West-Brown, a mother of two, is a teaching assistant at Ruston Elementary School who is pursuing a teaching certification at Grambling State University.
West-Brown was invited to the school, along with local businessman Joseph Henderson, to provide the students with direction and motivation.
Shirley May, a business teacher at Career Academy, said most students end up at this alternative school because they are not successful in a regular school setting due to poor academic performance, truancy or behavior problems.
