The Lincoln Parish school system will look into several new opportunities opened after the schools district was declared unitary, school Superintendent Mike Milstead said Friday.
Those opportunities include branching out into the science, technology, engineering and mathematics initiative, creating a year around school for students who need to gain more than a year’s worth of growth and pursuing partnerships in the community to further enhance education in the school system.

Hollis, Sallie.jpg

It happened last week. Actually, it had been sneaking up on me for some time. Something I couldn’t avoid. Even so, when it finally occurred, I felt kind of like Fred Sanford when he used to clutch his chest on the TV show “Sanford and Son” and call out to his deceased wife, “It’s the big one, Elizabeth!”

At Ruston High School, at Louisiana Tech University.

Hits that rearrange an opponent’s helmet and leaving him wondering whether he might wobble back to the huddle or be escorted to the sidelines by team trainers.
