The old adage goes that the best defense is a strong offense.
Louisiana Tech University found that out the hard way Thursday night before a national audience in a game telecast on Fox Sports 1.
A solid defensive effort went for naught for the Bulldogs as an anemic offense couldn’t be overcome with the Tulane Green Wave taking a 24-15 win before a Red Out game crowd of 22,035 at Joe Aillet Stadium.

Protect yourself from fraud

Senior members of our community are often faced with limited incomes, despite the hard-work and service they have provided throughout their lives to help Lincoln Parish become what it is today.
While we should celebrate and honor these community members, as the majority of us do, some individuals instead choose to prey on seniors who may be easier targets.

I wasn’t as shocked as many people would be to see a Miss America contestant proudly bearing the Serenity Prayer on her right ribcage, and another tattoo of the insignia for the U.S. Army Dental Corps on her left shoulder.
