Fall: Busy time for LHSAA

in

Fall is officially here, and with its arrival comes another exciting kickoff to the 2010-11 season of Louisiana high school athletics.  Here in Louisiana, when the days get shorter and the weather starts to change, we think football. More than just a game, football in Louisiana can be a week-long event.
But there are thousands of student-athletes across the state in other sports that merit recognition as well.
Although the players often take center stage, football involves many other interscholastic groups. The band, cheerleaders, ROTC squads and dancers all contribute to making the overall experience memorable for fans and athletes alike.

Tech golfers struggle at David Toms meet

in

After three straight impressive showings to start the fall season, Louisiana Tech University hit its first speed bump, as the Bulldog golf team struggled in Tuesday’s final round of the 2010 David Toms Intercollegiate and finished 12th in the 14-team event.
Tech shot its worst round of the fall, totaling 15-over-par 303 as the Bulldogs finished the three-round event at 24-over-par (888), besting only Georgia Southern and Rice.
“It wasn’t really what I had planned for us this week,” said Tech head coach Jeff Parks. “We had some bad holes, some bad mistakes and some big numbers. Obviously, we can’t have those.”

Carwile describes herself as open and outgoing, while Caldwell describes his life as insular. Nevertheless, the artists said they feel their work “gels.”
“Damon and I have been talking for a while about how we should do a show together,” Carwile said. “I thought it’d be interesting to see if our work will interact.”
Carwile said she begins her paintings with a grid, which allows disparate fragments to appear to be unified in the composition. The images are multi-layered.

Dubach council discusses bills, employment

in

Town council members met Monday to discuss different possibilities for the town of Dubach and its residents.
Items discussed were the outstanding bill for two new radars that were purchased, the possibility of another part time employee at the police station and signage on Simpson Road.
Two radars were purchased with the help of a state grant. The grant covered $2,900 of the cost, but $491.75 was left to be paid. Council members voted to pay the difference and the Dubach Police Department will have two new radars for police vehicles.

Pet's nutrition is important, too

in

Most of us spend at least some amount of time considering how healthy the food we place in our mouths each day actually is – especially with the general societal focus on being thin, beautiful and living forever (or at least as long as you can). However, many of us don’t put too much consideration into the food in the bowls of our beloved canine companions.
When I first got my puppy about four months ago she was the cutest little thing I ever saw. Being a proud new puppy parent, I researched as much as I could about all sorts of things. However, having never had to choose the food my dogs were fed growing up – I didn’t realize how horrible most of the foods sitting on the grocery store shelf were.
I did read some about the subject. Many of the suggestions – ranging from feeding the dog raw meat to paying top dollar on premium bagged food – seemed intimidating because of time and cost prohibitions. I can barely muster up the know-how to cook a hearty, healthy meal for myself – much less my adorable little Lady Godiva (she is named after the historical figure – but, yes, she is chocolate colored).
