The only things I dislike more than licorice and personal injury lawyer TV commercials are Bahia grass, armadillos, moles and gophers.
Bahia grass is the bane of my existence during the summer months. I detest it. It’s a product of the Devil. The hotter and dryer the weather gets, the more this mess flourishes.
Those tall, spindly shoots topped with black pods grow on the sides of church parking lots, all over burial plots in the cemetery, in front of the back door and down the sides of the U.S. Post Office, along the streets of Ruston and around the walking path at the parish park. It’s everywhere!
Louisiana Tech University’s football season didn’t end the way its loyal fans wanted it to, but one thing is patently clear about the 2012 edition of the Bulldogs.
Despite not being among the participants in the upcoming and seemingly never-ending bowl season, Tech had one of its greatest campaigns ever.
In the overall body of work produced by the ’Dogs since early September, it was a season filled with exciting wins, a plethora of team and individual records and plenty of attention from the national media.
Hundreds of men and women in law enforcement put their lives on the line in our community each and every day.
Not only does this number include officers and support staff with the Ruston Police Department, Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police, but it also includes law enforcement from Louisiana Tech University, Grambling State University, Vienna, Choudrant, Grambling, Dubach, Simsboro and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries.
These men and women provide protection to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
