Touching on various NBA topics, news

Well, my fellow National Basketball Association fans, the season is starting to dwindle, but the action is only beginning to heat up.
That’s right, after both the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat took commanding 2-0 leads in their series, both the Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder managed to claw their way back to an even series.
The Thunder did one better Monday night and managed to pull out a game 5 victory in front of the Spur’s home crowd. Even with that, I still see both these series going to Game 7s.

La Tech.jpg

With 13 of the last 16 Western Athletic Conference championships, Louisiana Tech University’s track and field team for women has always believed itself to be in a class of its own.
This year’s NCAA championship qualifiers from the Ruston school further prove that theory.
The Lady Techsters, under the guidance of head coach Gary Stanley for season No. 24, are sending five entries to the NCAA championships Wednesday through Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa.

’Dogs put solid finish to baseball

For a while there in the final weeks of the regular season, things looked bleak for Louisiana Tech University’s baseball team.
Until the last week, in fact, it was touch-and-go and nearly on the brink of not even making an appearance in the 2012 Western Athletic Conference postseason tournament.
But the Bulldogs did wind up being one of the six teams who earned a berth in the nearly week-long tourney held in Mesa, Ariz.

I have fond memories of summers on our farm. It was a time when all the cousins came for an extended stay without their parents, and my job was to show them a good time.

A weadding of obstacles

DeGrie, Elizabeth.jpg

At some point, most of your friends start to construct their grown-up lives. And, I’ve reached the stage where weddings are at very least a yearly affair.
There is nothing (though I’m sure my view will change when I have children) quite so beautiful as watching two people whom you have come to love join their lives together. No matter how many times you say “I’m not going to cry,” during such an event, it is never the truth.

'Harsh' punishment needed

in
Rosemond, John.jpg

I occasionally receive complaints from fellow mental health professionals that my approach to discipline is excessively punitive. The most recent accused me of actually recommending that 3-year-olds spend as much as a full day in their rooms for certain offenses. Said professional was horrified. She said punishment of that sort is “harsh” and does not “send positive messages.”

School Board to vote on 14th checks

The Lincoln Parish School Board plans to discuss the payment of salary supplements to its certified and support personnel at the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday.
Although sales tax collections have increased by 1.62 percent in the fiscal year through April, the returns are still down approximately $2.6 million, as compared to three years ago. Due to this decrease, the Lincoln Parish School Board is recommending the use of reserve funds to maintain the same supplemental payment as last year.
