Personal present ­— finishing novel by Christmas

in
Irby, Marna.jpg

Finishing my novel this year — I am; however, I have just decided it needed a prologue about when the heroine was 9 years old; then start the book when she’s 29, so I’m starting over, sort of.
It’s not as foolish as it sounds. I was getting pretty far into the book and kept having flashbacks to this time in her life, so I’ve decided a prologue would clear all that up. Therefore, I’ve done a three page prologue — now I have to go back and take out all the flashbacks, or at least the majority of them.

Tech architecture professor lands cover of national journal

An article by Guy Carwile, professor of architecture at Louisiana Tech University, on the history of the Jack Tar Hotel in Galveston, Texas and its innovative and progressive “poolscape” concept is featured on the cover of the spring 2011 edition of Society for Commercial Archeology (SCA) Journal.
Carwile’s article highlights the Jack Tar’s beginnings as a humble pre-World War II tourist court through its transformation into an exemplary mid-century motor hotel. Its signature element and centerpiece was the swimming pool and pool terrace that was arguably one of the finest hydro-centric assemblage ever built for transient use.

ACT scores rank third

Despite small decline, average still above state

District-wide ACT scores were released this week and Lincoln Parish is tied for the third highest average in the state.
Donna Doss, school improvement and accountability coordinator, said only the St. Tammany and Central Community school districts had a higher average composite score than Lincoln Parish. And, LaSalle Parish had the same average score as Lincoln.
One cause for concern was that Lincoln Parish students’ average score decreased from 21.0 for the 2009-10 school year to 20.9 for the 2010-11 school year.
