Late last month, All Hours Fitness Manager Trey Smith was able to realize a more than three-year dream — a new location for the fitness center.
Shortly after Smith took over the gym in 2008, he knew that something needed to change to provide members with the quality he wanted them to have.
“So far we’ve had a good response,” Smith said of the new location. “Everybody seems to like it. It’s been a long-time coming. I’ve been looking for a new facility for more than three years.”

Louisiana Tech sophomore quarterback Ryan Higgins is in a tough duel as a frontrunner to become the starting quarterback for the Bulldogs along with senior transfer Cody Sokol.
But one thing that has shown through the first week of camp is that it looks like Higgins will have solid competition for years to come.

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

I still can’t get used to it.
And yes, I’m probably old school — pun totally intended.
It just doesn’t seem quite right. There’s still 43 days of summer left. We’re into only the second week of August, but by Friday some of our parish students will start the new school year.
Whatever happened to school starting after Labor Day? Remember when school always started after Labor Day and ended just after Memorial Day?
It just feels too early. Summer is summer and you’re only a kid once. But times have changed, with even more change possible.
