Bulldogs seek answers at home

The Bulldogs from California haven’t totally lived up to their preseason hype if you peruse their results a little closer. Idaho (2-7, 1-4), the last place team in the WAC, recently totaled 32 points against FSU. And last week, next-to-last-place Utah State (1-7, 1-3) almost pulled off an upset win before a 58-yard field goal as time expired enabled FSU to escape with a 30-28 win.

“I just love it,” said Cedar Creek alumna Emily Adams, whose daughter, Sarah is in pre-k at the school. “My daughter’s having a wonderful time. I plan to keep her at the school through 12th grade.”
Lynda Steed, Cedar Creek development director, said it became apparent more space was needed for an increasing pre-k population, and work on the new facility began about nine months ago.

Halloween safety is paramount

Whether participating in trick-or-treating or an organized fall festival, safety should be the top priority.
Children’s costumes shouldn’t obstruct their vision or be too bulky or hot. Although temperatures have cooled in recent weeks, Louisiana weather is notoriously unpredictable.
A lightweight cotton costume is the best option for local trick-or-treaters.
All children should trick-or-treat with adult supervision. Parents who are a little wary of going door-to-door should consider some of the organized trick-or-treating events sponsored by community groups.

All children should trick-or-treat with adult supervision. Parents who are a little wary of going door-to-door should consider some of the organized trick-or-treating events sponsored by community groups.
From 4-5:30 p.m. Friday, children are invited to trick-or-treat in downtown Ruston, where merchants will pass out Halloween candy and host special sales. This annual event is well attended and fills downtown with all kinds of ghosts and goblins. And, since the downtown trick-or-treating is set for the late afternoon, parents won’t have to worry about children being out after dark.

State's culture gets spotlight

Dablow will display about 30 of his black and white landscape photographs. Dablow said he likes to depict contrasting elements and to infuse irony into his compositions. Lawson creates wire sculpture jewelry utilizing simple tools and cold forging techniques. Both are distinctive artists, and it is apparent by their stylistically appealing products that they have each worked for years at their crafts.

RHS hopes to ‘cap’ off season with success

Griffin, the younger brother of Bearcats’ wide receiver and kick returner Torrey Griffin, seems to be the “main man” in bringing the cap back to Laird this season. He recalled earlier this year that “I got it about four times in one game. I just want to make sure Coach Laird gets his cap back.”
The routine began back when Laird was the highly successful head coach at Nashville High School in Arkansas.
“I guess it was sometimes in 1992 or 1993,” he remembered. “It has now become more of a habit and reaction, mostly from frustration in the way we’re executing things.”
