Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

Gov. Bobby Jindal never gives up. Despite the fact that his chances of being the 2016 Republican presidential nominee appear to be slim, Jindal keeps on trying.
Take, for example, his recent flip-flop on the controversial Common Core education initiative. He used to be for it, now he’s against it. Education issues are best left up to local folks, Jindal contends.

A budding poet

“The Amazing Louisiana Coast”
My coast, so broad, so wide,
The ocean blows side to side,
The coast, my life, my soul,
Ocean depths, black as coal,
“Stop the erosion, stop the decay!”
I shout to the ocean waves,
Save the creatures, crabs and all,
Don’t let them die like the ones they are,
Let us enjoy the coast,
Let us brag, let us boast,
This is the time to stop and savor,
Drop the tools for all labor,
Enjoy our beautiful coast,
For it might be gone in our futuristic most.

What a difference a year makes.
Coming off a 8-4 finish under then-first year coach Brad Laird last season, the Ruston High School Bearcats began spring workouts Monday with decidedly more intensity and an even faster tempo than they did during their first practice under Laird a year ago.
The Bearcats will be looking to reload in several areas, especially at receiver and in the defensive backfield, where RHS lost multiple key players from the 2013 campaign.
