Dooley likes Bulldogs’ spirit

“We have a come a long way on that. There are guys flying around out there, knocking each other silly, and that’s good.
“Of all of the things we’ve improved on from last year, it’s the physical nature of how both sides are playing and the competitive spirit that they’re playing with.”
He added that “when you’ve got players laying it on the line and playing their hearts out, then it makes for a much more enjoyable experience for everyone. It gives you a chance to win. That’s what you want.”

Community input must continue

The Library Board has proposed spending $3.4 million in taxpayers’ money for the events center, which will fill about 20,000 square feet of empty space adjacent to the library in the old Albertsons building.
Although managed by the Library Board, the new facility will be the community’s events center and should be used to attract everything from library-sponsored exhibits to small conferences.

Home staging gets results

Kim Spangler, staging business owner of Wrapped Presents, said the United States Housing and Urban Development agency reported that a staged home can net a seller a price 17 percent higher than an un-staged dwelling. This is exciting news, and even better is the fact that staging need not be expensive to have a positive effect on the sale of a home.
Brown suggests buying a new shower curtain in a solid color, adding greenery to the front porch and inside the home and cleaning and de-cluttering the interior.

Residents look at center plans

Library board member Debbie Hollimon said she was excited by the concept of bringing “King Tut-type” exhibits to Lincoln Parish, and audience members said that the parish library is a special attraction that would be enhanced by the planned exhibit possibilities.
A disagreement has been brewing over whether the CVB was entitled to using the space, and it flared in the meeting as library board members and members of the CVB expressed their concerns.
CVB President Kyle Edmiston said the CVB’s vision was not far removed from the library board’s.

Roberts: All in the family at RHS

Ortego grew up in the Baton Rouge area and it was a great opportunity for her to go home and direct her alma mater to their usual visit to the state tournament in Sulphur.  For the past several years, the Class 5-A state champion had been the St. Amant Gators or the Denham Springs Yellow Jackets. 
Ruston High fans wish her the best except when they meet the Lady Bearcats. Then hold on to your hats. It is going to be a barn burner.

Grambling’s leaders must resolve issues

It goes beyond just Grambling, as well, stretching anywhere word of these antics is carried. The parish, state and others will look at Grambling in a negative light when arguments between the mayor and council dominate a meeting where the public’s needs and business that serve the town of Grambling should be the first and only priorities.
The power struggle, for lack of a better descriptor, that has been put so glaringly in the public eye is a symptom of a larger issue of disrespect and irresponsible stewardship of public trust.

Thinking of change? Join the club

I can’t recall exactly when I realized I wanted to be a writer, but I know it was at least as far back as junior high.
As my high school friends agonized over what their college major would be, my mind had been made up. I was going to be a journalist; it was as simple as that.
Through four years of college, I never changed my mind. I escaped the multiple-changes-in-major-resulting-in-a-later-graduation-date experience many college students go through.

Town tangled in power struggle

Andrus stopped him.
“It was not arbitrary, I assure you,” Andrus said. “It was done with great concern.”
She did not elaborate.
The next sign came later in the meeting. The council refused to extend a land purchase option on a piece of property next to the town hall, an item requested by the mayor.
Jones said he could not sign off on the sale of two certificates of deposit to fund the purchase because he had not seen an accurate financial report. He said he also wanted to wait until the town’s audit is complete.
