Chad Tingle of Saline showed how great a singer he is with a great old religious classic as he was named Dixie Entertainer of the Year Saturday night at the Dixie Center for the Arts.
Tingle’s version of “How Great Thou Art” brought the crowd to their feet in the fourth performance of the night in the Dixie Horizon Entertainer Search. A total of 21 acts competed for the right to be named Dixie Entertainer of the Year.
But after competing last year and placing third, Tingle wasn’t going to return this year until a little pressure from organizer C.J. Matlock changed his mind.

DART prepares to speak out

Autrey, Terrie Q.jpg

As our state legislators return to Baton Rouge this month, one of their first tasks is to review and hear public testimony on the proposed budget. This is the budget that cuts funding to domestic violence programs by another $1.4 million, bringing our total cuts to $2.4 million since last July.
Remember what those figures mean for the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team?
In Gov. Bobby Jindal’s midyear budget cuts in December, we lost $63,000. As a result, we were forced to let two of our staff members go, and we cut costs in several other areas.

in
Ex-Tech star, others pay physical price for success
040713 WILLIE AND FAN.jpg

At times on the Louisiana Tech University practice field last Saturday morning, Willie Roaf could stand for only so long.
Eventually, there would come the time when he would say, “Excuse me,” and then lean up against one of the tall light poles located nearby or on a huge tire affixed to a crane.
Welcome to the life of a former NFL player.
