Bulldogs set to start postseason play

Top-seeded Tech to face Charlotte tonight in C-USA quarterfinals

EL PASO, Texas — There are a lot of similarities in this year’s team and last year’s team — a 25-win season, a share of a conference championship and a No. 1 seed in the conference tournament.
However, the big difference is momentum. Instead of going into the Conference USA tourney on a two-game losing streak like last season, Louisiana Tech is on a four-game winning streak and playing some of its best basketball.
The Bulldogs look to carry that momentum into the quarterfinal matchup against No. 9 Charlotte at 9:30 tonight inside the Don Haskins Center.

Time for talented residents to hit the stage, help

It’s no secret that Ruston and Lincoln Parish love the arts. From the Louisiana Peach Festival arts and crafts show and the annual Holiday Arts Tour to musical and theatrical performances at the Dixie Center for the Arts, as well as the two local universities, residents have access to a variety of different art opportunities throughout the year.
It’s also no secret that people in Lincoln Parish love to give back to their community and to people in need.
So, it should be no surprise that two local events in the near future will celebrate both of these passions.

Blending up some life lessons

in
Arrington, Briana.jpg

Sometimes your first choice is your best choice.
Unfortunately, I’m not the type of person who likes to settle and so rarely do I go with my first option because I know if I do, there will always be a nagging in the back of my mind that begins with “woulda, coulda or shoulda.”
Case in point, for the past week I have been unable to eat solid food because I had my wisdom teeth removed and so, when I got tired of eating yogurt and applesauce, I decided to buy myself a blender. I went to Fred’s and examined the choices: one blender in a box for $25 or one blender on display for $18.
