Grambling student missing

Grambling State officials say they have no reason to believe McMullen ever made it to Louisiana.
“I really have no idea on what happened other than it looks like she didn’t make it here,” GSU Police Chief Craig Nance said. “It’s hard to say what has happened because it didn’t occur in our jurisdiction.”
Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call her family at 717-943-0098 or Ruston Police at 255-4141.

Tech, GSU have road tests

Tech will go from having played against a WAC opponent ranked in the nation’s Top 25 to one who just knocked off a Top 25 listed club.
In the shocker of the season so far, Hawaii (2-3, 1-1) stunned then-No. 22 ranked and preseason league favorite Fresno State 32-29 in overtime. And in Fresno, no less. A 33-yard field goal by placekicker Dan Kelly gave the Warriors the unexpected win against a Bulldogs’ squad that was favored by 20 points.

Old housing holds history

This experience has become even more of a special memory now that I know shotgun houses are in danger of vanishing from the southern landscape. As a proponent of historic preservation, this is disappointing news indeed. According to Wikipedia, shotgun houses were popularly built in New Orleans and throughout the South from the end of the Civil War (1865) through the 1920s. They typically contain three-five rooms in a row with no hallways.

Men in particular are invited to Head Start on Oct. 29 to interact with the children by playing games or leading physical fitness activities. All local men — of any age, any background — are encouraged to attend.

GSU halts Panthers

The 40 points was Grambling’s best of the season and 13 more than the past two weeks combined.
“Hopefully, the offense can get better from this point on,” Broadway. “It feels good because we played good. Last we took a step back on offense. This was our best all-round game of the season.”
Grambling (4-2,1-0 SWAC) handed the Panthers (4-1,0-1) their first loss of the season and 21st straight in this series dating back to 1987.
