Tech golfers struggle in WAC championships

in

HENDERSON, Nev. — Sam Forgan shot a one-over-par 73 in the opening day of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference Tournament, but Louisiana Tech struggled as a team as the Bulldogs sit in a tie for seventh place after 18 holes at Rio Secco Golf Club.
Idaho and Fresno State are tied for the lead at one-under-par 287 followed by San Jose State (290), New Mexico State (293), Utah State (294), Nevada (301), Tech (304) and Hawaii (304).

It's not too early to pump Tech football

In the Deep South, it’s never too early to start talking about the “second religion” called football.
And that certainly applies to Louisiana Tech University for this year.
Although the 2012 season is still several months away, now is the time to start planning for the Bulldogs’ 12-game schedule that will kick off in late August against Texas A&M at Shreveport’s Independence Stadium.

Last month, I wrote about some of the new water trails that have been developed in northeast Louisiana. This month I want to continue that conversation and share with you some beautiful places to paddle that are only hours away from your doorstep.
Today, we will travel to Bayou Bartholomew and its tributary, Chemin-a-haut. These waterways are considered to be the crown jewels of the rivers of northeast Louisiana. To get there, travel to Bastrop and locate the Old Berlin Bridge where you will access Bayou Bartholomew.

Protecting or restricting?

Once upon a time — when I was a typical cash-strapped American college student — I went online looking for opportunities to use my God-given (and college-improved) talents to make some extra cash.
I searched high and low for opportunities to do freelance writing for pay. But, instead of magazines, newspapers or blogs wanting stories on current affairs or meaningful features — I found websites wanting articles to increase hits.

Stop 'high self-esteem seizures'

Rosemond, John.jpg

Question: My 4-year-old stepson still has the occasional tantrum in response to being told that he can’t have or do something. His mother, who has primary custody (he’s with us two days a week, generally), is very permissive, so he comes by this “honestly.” When he throws a tantrum, we put him in his “tantrum place,” which is a chair in the dining room. That causes his tantrum to get worse, actually, and it sometimes takes him 30 minutes or more to calm himself down to where he can get out of the chair. Is there anything we can do to help him get control of himself or should we just ignore it and carry on? Four years old is too old for tantrums, correct?
