Famous farm inventor stops in Ruston
012914 Haylage guy C.jpg

In his 700th presentation around the world, Bernard Adam spoke to a handful of local farmers at Ruston Tractor on Tuesday.
Adam said he has been using haylage, hay that has more than 50 percent moisture that is wrapped in plastic, in his Ontario farm since the late 1980s.
“I live 18 miles north of the Vermont border,” Adam said. “I’m in the USA for two weeks, and I am at home on my farm for one week. When I am home I like to go in the woods and work.”
Adam said he had first heard of wrapping bales of hay in 1986.

Ouachita’s strong start was too much for Ruston to overcome as the Lady Lions roared to a 70-35 Tuesday night at RHS.

The Lady Bearcats managed to outscore Ouachita 14-8 in the final stanza, but too much damage had been done by then.
Sunni McAllister and Hali Hester led Ruston with 10 points each while future Lady Techster Deja Chase led Ouachita with 22 points and T’Ericka Bell added 15 for the Lady Lions.
Grambling 39, Ringgold 29

Cedar Creek Cougars head coach Kyle Kavanaugh never would shy away from playing the best in the state at home.
“They have had an unbelievable season,” Kavanaugh said. “It’s not just the talent they have, but they are also well coached.”
Class 1A No. 1 Arcadia Hornets beat the Cougars, 77-39, last night.
The Cougars, who totaled 22 turnovers, struggled offensively throughout the game, never finding a groove. Defensively, however, the zone defense they run gave the Hornets some early game struggles.
After the first quarter, Cedar Creek was only down 16-9.

Louisiana offers a tax code that rewards volunteer service.
In 2007, House Bill 949 was introduced to provide for a tax deduction for persons who volunteer with a recreation department. The key is the recreation department must be operated by the state of Louisiana. Obviously, RPAR qualifies.
