GRAMBLING — There’s a good chance that the defensive staff at Alcorn State University is circling the jersey number “50” these days in preseason training camp.
Now it’s not the jersey worn by a Braves’ player, but by one of the team’s fiercest rivals.
It’s the number on the front and back of a black and gold jersey worn by Cliff Exama of Grambling State University.

For a 30-year period, few track and field/cross country coaches at the Louisiana high school level could match the success of Dave Anderson.

Take chance to recycle

in

There are a few opportunities around town to do something good for the environment.
Each month, Lincoln Parish residents have an opportunity to drop off paper products, select hazardous materials and aluminum beverage cans to be recycled.
And recently, another option has been added. The city of Ruston recently placed a large blue recycling bin at the Lincoln Parish Police Jury Complex on Alabama Avenue.

Fighting off back-to-school anxiety

in
Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

It was a long time ago, but I can still remember it so well.
The mixture of apprehension and nervous anticipation. The high hopes and loftier goals. Getting to start anew in a changing world.
Those are some of the feelings floating through the minds of our Lincoln Parish students as they prepare to head back to school next week. Some are panicked to see the months of summer recreation come to an end, although a few parents out there might be ready to release big sighs of relief. Some are nervous at the thought of meeting new friends, especially when starting out in a new school.

People tend to say, “automobiles — they just don’t make them like they used to.” Growing up I can remember learning to drive a “stick” shift, and having to memorize the directions. I can even remember the transmission having three forwards and one reverse. You see, no one ever had the factory issued cover for their shifter. I can remember one shifter that had an 8 ball to move from one direction to another. The elderly gentleman showed it to me and said “Straight from the pool table!” Surely he expected us to believe him, as he smiled so bright. Politely we smiled as well.

Running on empty

Juneau, Dan.jpg

“I don’t know where I’m running now, I’m just running on. Running on-running on empty. Running on-running blind. Running on-running into the sun. But I’m running behind.”
Those lyrics from Jackson Browne’s “Running on Empty” say a lot about the state of the U.S. economy today ­— and Barack Obama’s political fate as well. Economically, this nation is running on empty. Politically, the president isn’t far behind.
