110313 GSU J Williams scramble C.jpg

Grambling State Interim Head Coach Dennis “Dirt” Winston doesn’t look at it as a quarterback controversy.
Instead, he likens it to a having a “a double-barreled shotgun” behind center.
Winston said during Monday’s weekly press conference that DJ Williams remains GSU’s starting signal caller after not playing in last weekend’s 47-40 Homecoming win over Mississippi Valley State after suffering concussion symptoms following the previous week’s loss to Texas Southern.

Malveo, April.jpg

So how did April Malveo go from not knowing the correct way to throw the discus in high school to being a two-time All-American thrower at Louisiana Tech and the first ever female track and field athlete inducted into the University’s Athletics Hall of Fame?
Well, there was tons of desire, hard work and determination. Then there was one of the easiest, or sometimes hardest, of things for people to do — listening.

Bulldogs balanced in 100-49 exhibition win over SAU

in

The Louisiana Tech coaching staff wanted to see a different mentality and stronger effort in the second exhibition game, and they got it as the Bulldogs defeated Southern Arkansas, 100-49, in dominant fashion on Monday night at the Thomas Assembly Center.
It was practically a mirror image of the 2012-13 Bulldogs — strong defense and balanced scoring — that helped Tech hit the century mark in the lopsided victory.

Kudos to GSU for big weekend

It’s about time.
Congratulations to Grambling State University for a big weekend — just when the beleaguered school needed it most.
First, the GSU football team snapped an 18-game losing streak to NCAA opponents, picking up their first win of the season under their third head coach of the 2013 campaign.
And secondly, six years after the death of Coach Eddie G. Robinson, the university finally renamed its football stadium after its legendary leader as it is now known as Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium.

Hatch, Dora Ann.jpg

Christmas tree farms or plantations, as they are sometimes called, are great places to visit prior to the Christmas season. Many Louisiana Christmas tree farms also have activities for fall fun, too.

Degrie, Elizabeth 8-13 NEW.jpg

A few months ago, I wrote about how my mother was in the Intensive Care Unit for almost an entire week.
At my age — and more specifically my mother’s age — it was a terrifying concept.

More than once in the course of my work I’ve met people my grandmother’s age — if she were still alive — who still had their mothers.
