It’ll be an in-state civil war — north vs. south — at 6 p.m. Saturday as Louisiana Tech takes to the road to face the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.
The teams are no strangers to each other even though the former Southland Conference rivals haven’t played since 2004.
Tech holds a 46-33-6 series advantage over the Ragin’ Cajuns, and has won six straight over ULL, including a 24-20 win in 2004.
Bulldogs coach Skip Holtz realizes his team will be tested against ULL, which opened the season with a 45-6 win at home over Southern.

That word means much to the Ruston and Neville High School football programs — two teams who have each won more than a few state championships over the years.
The two have faced each other every season in one of the oldest rivalries in the state, and that rivalry will be renewed at 7 p.m. today at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium in the season opener for both teams.

in

GRAMBLING — As Grambling State prepares to face Houston on the road at 7 p.m. Saturday in a battle of 0-1 teams, first-year Tigers coach Broderick Fobbs is looking for a better team than the one that fell 42-27 at Lamar.
And he’d love to see his Tigers pull off the upset over the major college program.
“Most teams make their biggest jump between week one and week two,” Fobbs said. “So I’m looking for a much better performance this week.”

Ordinary people inspire greatness

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”
— Louis Nizer
In this business not a day goes by where we don’t meet someone new.
That new person can become an instant friend or a reliable source of great story ideas. But every now and then we meet a person that we just sort of click with.
No I’m not talking about a soul mate, well maybe if there is such a thing as a work-related soul mate.

To celebrate this new season and enjoy an early evening outdoors, be sure to come downtown for the Fall Crawl. Several arts businesses in downtown Ruston are joining together for a great evening from 5-9 p.m. Sept. 19
