Play it safe on local highways

In recent weeks we have seen an influx of traffic crashes throughout the parish.
Labor Day weekend alone saw more than a handful of motor vehicle accidents with several passengers being transported for injuries.
Sgt. Clint Williams, public information officer with the Ruston Police Department, said in a recent interview that driving is a task that deserves a person’s full attention.
“When you throw the phone in there, you’re not giving driving your full attention,” he said.

Try to avoid rare respiratory virus

in
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

It hasn’t hit in Louisiana — yet — but doctors warn that a respiratory illness that has already sickened more than 1,000 children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem.
The disease hasn’t been officially identified but officials suspect it is a rare respiratory virus called Human Enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

Bulldogs enjoy Cajun feast

Dixon’s 99-yard burst helps Tech top ULL 48-20

LAFAYETTE — Louisiana Tech’s offense struggled to get going in last week’s season-opening loss at Oklahoma.
Maybe the Bulldogs were just saving up for in-state rival Louisiana-Lafayette.
Tech’s offense was as red hot as any Cajun cooking Saturday as junior running back Kenneth Dixon helped the ’Dogs power past ULL 48-20 in front of 25,607 fans at Cajun Field.
The Bulldogs (1-1) ignited for 533 yards of offense and never trailed while Dixon set a new Tech and Conference USA record for the longest rush with a 99-yard burst to open scoring.

Davis, OK.jpg

Our two cents’ worth of opinions and observations on all matters dealing with sports:
TECH OMITTED?: Here we are, two games into the 2014 collegiate football season and predictions are already being made for the bowl games.
Honest.
I am not kidding.
Granted, much of the prognosticating is based on what teams have coming back from last year, but even then, it’s a major shot in the dark open to plenty of second guessing.

Tech volleyball falls; soccer team nets win

in

LAKE CHARLES — Louisiana Tech wrapped up a weekend’s worth of matches at the Big Daddy’s Invitational as the Lady Techsters dropped their final contest of the weekend to UT Arlington, 3-0 (25-20, 25-20, 25-18), at Memorial Gym in Lake Charles.
Tech (2-4) matched UT Arlington point for point in the first two sets, but a late boost in each set by UT Arlington, a team that improved to 7-1 on the season with the win, helped the Mavericks gain the advantage over the Lady Techsters.
