Tech officials announced in mid-Monday that the contract of former baseball coach Wade Simoneaux would not be renewed.

The Union/Lincoln bond

Arrington, Briana.jpg

Most anyone who knows me knows I’m from Union Parish — and proud of it. Sure it has it’s quirks and, yes, even its cliques like any other small town does, but it’s actually a pretty great place.
Lincoln Parish is too. This is my second time to live in Ruston and I really like this parish too, for completely different reasons. But, it seems to me there’s always been a little competition between Lincoln and Union — at least for as long as I can remember. The culture is the same but the mindsets are different.

Plenty of cool weather and rain is going to make for a tasty Louisiana Peach Festival season according to local peach growers.
“We have started picking already,” Joe Mitcham, owner of Mitcham Farms, said. “We’ve got a good crop.”
The season, Mitcham said, is actually about 10 days later than average, even though last year’s season was similarly late.
“We had a lot of cool nights early on in the spring,” Mitcham said. “It takes warm weather and sunshine. We had over 1,200 chill hours, which is good. As long as we get over 800 to 900 chill hours, it’s good.”
