Ruston still remains home several years later

in
Amaya, Derek.jpg

Making friends in my first year at Louisiana Tech University proved somewhat challenging.
The challenge was not so much meeting people, but rather finding common interest with folks who were happy to know there were “two Taco Bells in Ruston.”
My hometown, Metairie, has three of the Tex-Mex fast food chains within three miles of each other on one main thoroughfare.
No, the tales of my youth involved less agrarian mindsets and more bright lights and compactness of the cities.

Keep lowering the jobless rate

Good news, Louisiana, and we certainly deserve it.
The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has declined for four consecutive months, according to data released by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
Louisiana’s unemployment rate currently sits at 5.2 percent.
The last time the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was lower than 5.2 percent was August 2008.
The rate also currently sits 0.9 percent points lower than the same time period a year ago.

My friends in the profession tell me I have sat on my “booty” enough.
Easy for them to spew forth words of wisdom, however questionable.
I’ve dearly paid for them with a nagging, never completely healed bedsore that has lasted more than a year.
But no more. I will undergo surgery today to hopefully put the wraps around a problem that has been tantamount to an MLB hitter figuring out how to outwit Clayton Kershaw.
The only unknown is exactly when I will return to the starting lineup for writing.
Could be for several weeks, possibly for as long as a month.

Duron: The heart of Tech’s two-time champs

Slot Left, P 26 Belly, X Corner.
It looks silly, just sitting there. “Slot Left, P 26 Belly, X Corner.” But this pass play, installed halfway through Louisiana Tech’s 1973 football season and called with the Bulldogs trailing by three points with time running out in the Division II Semifinals, was money in the bank down the stretch, the winning play in a 38-34 victory over Boise State and what quarterback Denny Duron calls “one of the most important plays of that national championship season.”
