Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

This past week, our community lost a legend and a gentleman when Mickey McHale died.
Anyone from Ruston could list the many different roles and achievements of this remarkable man. He was a business leader and an entrepreneur, an intelligent man with a kind heart.

Davis, OK.jpg

Louisiana Tech University’s recent upset win over Oklahoma in Norman sent some shock waves over the nation’s college basketball landscape.

That victory could also bode well for Tech down the line.
Specifically, once the postseason arrives.
Let’s say the fun-to-watch Bulldogs win the Conference USA championship and earn an automatic berth in the NCAA tournament.
Having beaten the talented Sooners should give the ’Dogs the confidence they can win against opponent they face in the Big Dance.
