LPSO seeks leads on dog fights

in

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help regarding what appears to be evidence of dog fighting.
Construction workers discovered the remains of six or seven dogs in a beaver pond off Moore’s Dairy Road on Thursday.
“When they broke the dam, a couple of the dog carcasses washed out of it,” LPSO Major Stephen Williams said. “They were probably victims of dog fighting. They were just dumped there.”
Though the remains were in various stages of decay, Williams said the dogs appear to have been mixed breed. Dog fighting is illegal.

It’s no secret that one of the favorite pastimes for many college students is hanging out and talking with friends.
And now that’s easier to do for Louisiana Tech students thanks to a partnership that has developed between GEAUX Hammocks out of Monroe and the university’s Lambright Intramural Center.
The Lambright Center held a ribbon cutting last week to celebrate the opening of a hammock station next to Lake Reneau in Garland Gregory Hideaway Park, with telephone poles set into the ground to hang the hammocks from.

I will ever loyal be to Tech

in

I have dreamed of the day I would receive my university diploma for a long time. For a while, it felt like the day would never come, but now it is here.
I will be graduating from Louisiana Tech in a week and I am a bundle of mixed emotions. I am ready to be done with school, but I am terrified because that is all I have ever known. This will be the first time I am completing a year of school and do not have to think about going back.
I am going to miss Tech and everything it has to offer.

Life lessons learned at local event

in
Hawley, Heather.jpg

When I was a sophomore in high school, I had absolutely no idea what it meant to be an adult.
I never had to worry about paying bills, making a budget or deciding on a car payment.
Those lessons were learned after I got married.
Sure, my parents taught me a little about being fiscally responsible and when I went to college, I had to make some money decisions for myself, but nothing like the real world.
It’s not my parent’s fault, it is difficult to explain money to a teenager and have them fully understand the consequences of their actions.
