Rescue Center gives students second chance

One of the key elements to the new system is community involvement. Guest speakers are brought in from local businesses and government agencies to provide inspiration and incentives for the students. The relationship between the school, the students and the members of the community is vital because each directly affects the others.
When the community takes pride in its schools and shows care and concern for the things happening there, teachers, students and administrators notice. As members of this community, we can inspire and challenge local students to do their best.

Do a good deed — adopt

Mia was joined by a Maine Coon kitten (at least I think he is, he’s big enough to be) not long after the move. I was, as many people are by pets, feeling inconvenienced.
That lasted about 0.8 of a second, when he curled up on my thin chest and went to sleep. Enzo has since grown into a huge woolly thing that will not let me pet him and is absolutely sure my fiancée is his girlfriend.
Enzo and Mia existed playfully, with him swinging from cat toys and her trying her level best to stay away from him and his dirty paws (she is quite vain). Then came the third.

Choudrant reaches solution

Choudrant Mayor Bill Sanderson quoted the ordinance when answering. It would be effective after final adoption and publication “in the manner prescribed by law.”
“At that point, which by law has to be within 10 days, typically for us is the week that it is passed,” Sanderson said. “We forward it to the paper and it is published. At time of publication, if passed, it would become effective.”

’Dogs: Tough way to end year

And if the chilly, nearly 20-miles per hour winds took a bite out of the Tech squad, then Nevada’s all-around performance delivered even more of a knockdown punch.
The Wolf Pack (6-6, 4-4) totaled 641 offensive yards via 404 through the air and 259 on the ground, had a 29-12 advantage in first downs and controlled the time of possession by nearly 15 minutes.

Barksdale should house command

Barksdale Air Force Base maintains its key position in the fight against cyber warfare, which uses technology still foreign to most of the population to attack the computer infrastructure of companies, cities and nations.
The Air Force could not have a better place to house Cyber Command than Barksdale Air Force Base, even though other interests are pushing hard to have the country’s new center for technological defense end up in their backyards.

Restore our environment

Finally, I am about to embark on some restoration projects of my own right here in our neck of the woods. Thanks to generously discounted supplies from Lowe’s and time donated by Dubach High School’s agri-science class, wood duck boxes are being built as you read this. They are then going to be placed by 4-H’ers out at our very own Lincoln Parish Park. For Arbor Day and in honor of the centennial celebration 4-H is doing, we are planting a total of 100 cypress saplings all across the north central region.

New chief officially takes reins

“We do need more room,” Rogers said in reference to the current RPD home at City Hall.
If more space is allotted, Rogers said the department might be able to move forward and hire additional officers and dispatchers.
“We receive more calls than we did 5 years ago,” he said, “and it would be cramped to put another dispatcher in there.”
Rogers said he would like to work with Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth and the aldermen on obtaining another facility that leaves room for expansion, since the city is growing by leaps and bounds.

Basketballers need support this season

The Bulldogs’ new head coach Kerry Rupp, as well as the extremely young and inexperienced team, need as much support as we can muster for them.
Rupp brings a solid reputation from major college assistant jobs in Indiana, Utah and Alabama-Birmingham.
He’s also highly regarded as a recruiter, and that skill has already been proven in signing the highly touted Olu Ashaolu, who is being red-shirted, as well as several others.
