Ex-GSU stars give back

Somewhere up above, Eddie Robinson is smiling.
The former Grambling State University head football coach has to be feeling proud about what two of his former players have been doing in recent years, long after their careers in the National Football League were over.
For seven years now, if it’s early June, it has to mean another Shack Harris/Doug Williams Foundation event that is all about community service and giving back to others.

Train offers unique experience

Most of us encounter the trains that blast their way through downtown Ruston on a daily basis. However, as I prepared to travel to Virginia via train at the end of last month I discovered that very few people I spoke to had ever traveled by train.

For instance, Buckeye rot, Blossom-end Rot, Early Blight, Leaf Spot, Fusarium Wilt, Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus, Bacterial Canker along with others have all been a challenge to the home gardener.

It looks like the Sleep Wars have begun.
Several weeks ago, in a column on attachment parenting, I wrote “James J. McKenna, director of the Mother-Baby Sleep Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame, says that he has yet to find any benefit to parents and children sleeping together.” I arrived at that conclusion after reading an online Q/A in which he wrote “The truth is that there is no one outcome (good or bad) that can be associated with co-sleeping in the form of bed-sharing, but rather a range of outcomes (from potentially beneficial to dangerous and risky) depending on the overall circumstances within which the co-sleeping takes place.”
