Trash pile blaze ignites house fire

in

A fire Monday evening damaged a porch and part of a house trailer on U.S. 167.
Lincoln Parish Fire Department Chief Dennis Ford said a man was burning a trash pile near a friend’s trailer at 2669 U.S. 167 when the flames ignited the trailer’s back porch.
“The fire was too close to the structure and caught the porch on fire and then moved to the back part of the trailer,” Ford said. “We received the call at 7:03 p.m. and the man had knocked down most of the fire with a garden hose by the time we got there. But the trailer was still smoking when we got there, so we wet things down a little more to put out anything that was smoldering, and we cleared smoke out of the residence. There was some smoke damage and a little structure damage, although the trailer wasn’t damaged real bad. The porch was charred up pretty good, though, and will probably have to be rebuilt.”

A train fatally struck a Homer man Saturday at a crossing on Louisiana Highway 563 close to Simsboro.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Capt. Stephen Williams said that according to personnel, the pedestrian, identified as 49-year-old Tommy Kemp, had been given several warnings of the oncoming freight.
“He blew the horn several times. The lights were on … ” Williams said. “Apparently the guy never heeded any warnings. I don’t really know why he didn’t react.”

Soon-to-be Naismith inductee was center of Jazz success

Envision an assembly line of the perfect basketball player and waiting at the other end for a completed model is Jerry Sloan.
When Karl Malone was ticketed for the Utah Jazz in 1985, the organization’s longtime and highly successful head coach had found his man.
Sloan, and the entire franchise for that matter, couldn’t have found a more impact-producing warrior than the north Louisiana native who will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., on Friday night.

Spangler hopes for improved ‘D’

in

Coordinator Tommy Spangler is hoping that a combination of seasoned veterans and wide-eyed youngsters bodes well for Louisiana Tech University’s defensive unit in 2010.
“I’m eager to see if two things can happen for us during fall camp,” Spangler said Monday, just a few hours before the Bulldogs kicked off their preseason workouts. “First, I’m hoping that our older guys remember what they did last year and continue to develop. At the same time, I’m hoping that these young guys who might not know what to do right now start blending in with the older ones.”
From all indications, based on personnel returning and the progress made in the spring, the Bulldogs’ defense has the potential to draw as much attention as the much-talked-about spread offense.

GSU not happy with SWAC poll

in

GRAMBLING — Polls may not mean anything at this time of the year, but they can be productive for bulletin board material.
Ask Grambling State University players.
The recently announced preseason poll for the Southwestern Athletic Conference has the Tigers finishing as runner-up again to Prairie View A&M in the Western Division and, thus, missing out on a trip to the league’s championship game.

Summer reading program enriches parish children

Each summer, thousands of children across the country take a break from all things school related and spend their days lounging by the pool and watching as much television as they can fit into their day.
However, at least a couple hundred school-aged children and teens in Lincoln Parish spent their days with their noses buried in books and hanging out at the library. This summer the Lincoln Parish Library encouraged people of all ages to pick up books, DVDs and audio books to nourish their minds. Featured programs were directed toward children, tweens, teens and adults.
These children, tweens and teens flocked to the library either for their love of reading or possibly their love of prizes. Either way, those decisions have given them a head start for the upcoming school year.
