Life in the fast lane

Bags packed and seated in his parents’ Yukon XL, in 2008, 15-year-old Sawyer Stone watched the Dallas traffic swoosh around him. After a four-hour drive, the family had finally reached their destination. They were not heading for a museum or concert. They were bringing Sawyer to college.
At 14, Sawyer Stone graduated from a small high school in Hot Springs, Ark. At 15, he began school at Southern Methodist University. At 18, he graduated from SMU and headed to graduate school at Louisiana Tech University.

Making the rounds in Ruston

Irby, Marna.jpg

My visit to Ruston exceeded my every expectation. I can’t tell you how happy I was to be there and express my deep appreciation for the warm welcome I felt everywhere I went. There truly is “no place like home.”
One of the real highlights of the trip was the time spent with Littera Club on Wednesday. The club met at the Community Bank reception room to a well attended group. Emily Baugh is the new president and presided beautifully over the meeting, which especially emphasized all the past presidents. There was an individual scroll depicting the years we each served and a little vase of flowers for each.

’Dogs, Aggies to collide Saturday

100912 HOLLEY RUN C.jpg

It might behoove fans attending Saturday night’s showdown between Louisiana Tech University and Texas A&M to bring along a sleeping cot.
Figure on a long night at Shreveport’s Independence Stadium when the two newly Top 25 ranked teams collide.
Not only will the kickoff time be late — 8:15 p.m. — but it’s also set for national television (ESPNU) and both teams have a sizable quantity of passing plays in their offensive schemes.
All of which will probably make for more than four hours of action that won’t wind up until the early hours of Sunday morning.
