Politics and his cheating heart

in
LAURA SLOAN.jpg

If one can’t be trusted to be true to their spouse, how can they be expected to remain loyal to their country?
This is the question many ask when a politician is caught up in a scandal involving adultery. And there are plenty of instances where this happens.
Consider the following:
• The second ex-wife of Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich came forward to disclose that her former hubby confessed to having a six-year affair with a Congressional aide and asked her for an open marriage. Gingrich reportedly acknowledged cheating on both his first and second wives.

February's Most Valuable Players

in
BROOKS, BRENDA.jpg

Creeping into February, the thoughts are pretty much the same for most people: 1) New Year’s Resolutions? I thought I had started by writing them down; 2) Jan. 31? Ugh, I have to get those taxes under way; 3) Winter is coming? You mean it isn’t over yet? I wonder if anyone is thinking about Martin Luther King Jr., and the impact he made and tried to make in life? That was January, Brenda. On Jan. 16, there was an entire day dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr. This is February.

Blind responsible for own safety

in

A recent article in the Ruston Daily Leader caught my attention. A blind Louisiana Tech student was talking about bicyclists on campus and the dangers they can cause for a blind person.
I read several articles a year about various dangers the blind face, lack of beeping street lights, other pedestrians, no sidewalk warnings (the raised dots on the sidewalk found at street corners), skateboarders, you name it, I’ve probably read an article about it.

Stability and winning.
Those two factors, probably more than anything else played the ultimate role in Louisiana Tech University landing a banner crop of football signees on Wednesday.
“Recruiting is so much about relationships and the fact that our staff hasn’t had a change in two years lets a prospect know that there’s stability and consistency with the program here,” said Bulldogs’ Head Coach Sonny Dykes at a middday National Signing Day luncheon held at the Ruston Civic Center. “Winning the conference (Western Athletic) and going to a bowl game last year certainly helps, too.”

GRAMBLING — A year ago, football recruiting was in a decidedly discombobulated state of affairs at Grambling State University.
On the very day that an NCAA member school could announce its signees, then Tigers’ Head Coach Rod Broadway up and left to take the same job at North Carolina A&T.
Hardly anybody knew who th G-Men had inked to national letters-of-intent and there wasn’t a head coach available to comment on the subject.
