Constitution week observed

We celebrate a number of various holidays throughout the calendar year.
Officially enacted on Aug. 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Constitution week was petitioned by the Daughters of the American Revolution.
But it would be many decades before the actual observance of that great piece of documentation took place.
In 2002, President George W. Bush declared the inception of the holiday with the purpose of promoting, studying and educating the general public about the constitution, which was adopted by the American people on Sept. 17, 1787.

As Tulane’s defense constantly pressured Louisiana Tech’s quarterbacks in last Thursday’s 24-15 win over the Bulldogs at Joe Aillet Stadium, Tech coach Skip Holtz said he had another offensive scheme to try and light a fire under his anemic offense.
But he elected not to pull the trigger.
Starter Scotty Young did not play in the second half after injuring his ribs last in the openng half, and redshirt freshman struggled in his first collegiate action.

GRAMBLING — Louisiana Tech pitched their second road shutout of the weekend as they dominated Grambling State to the tune of a 6-0 victory on Sunday afternoon at GSU Soccer Field.
Tech (4-4-1) happily ended a long seven-game road stretch, winning three of their last four matches.
“Not our best performance but any win on the road is a bonus,” head coach Kevin Sherry said. “The heat didn’t help the game to have any flow to it.
“We lacked a little bit of composure in front of the goal which we need to improve on.”
