Tales of rehab, supernatural encounters

Irby, Marna.jpg

Here I sit in my wheelchair waiting for my church granddaughter, Lori James, to come have lunch with me and give me a manicure. I wish you could meet her. She is a darling girl. Her husband’s name is Bobby James.
At their house recently, Bobby brought out a newspaper article someone sent him when the Ruston Parks and Recreation gym was renamed “Bobby James Memorial Gym.” Someday, I told him he could go home with me and see it for himself.

Giving thanks to our local educator

Anyone who doubts that education is a big deal in Lincoln Parish need only look to the emphasis placed on improving the area during the Ruston 21 planning sessions held several years ago.
Because of this emphasis, facilities providing kindergarten through 12th grade education and universities in the area have seen numerous upgrades and improvements throughout the past years. One such improvement has been the effort to create a closer bond between educators, parents, students, businesses and other volunteers in our community.

Losing the stress of losing weight

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

New Year’s resolutions typically mean people are hitting the gym, health food stores or trying to kick a bad habit.
But for the many who don’t create a resolution, it doesn’t mean they don’t want to better themselves. To me it means that those people always want to better themselves not just for a temporary time.
You may be wondering where I am going with this tiny rant. Well my gym recently opened its new facility.
Let me just say it’s amazing. With extra equipment and more room the possibilities are endless.

1.16 sports.jpg

Louisiana Tech men’s basketball team prides itself on defensive play.
Fortunately, the Dunkin’ Dogs can get offensive, too.
And maybe even more fortunately, they have senior guard Kenneth “Speedy” Smith spearheading both their offensive and defensive efforts.
Both of those factors played big roles Thursday as the Bulldogs remained undefeated in Western Athletic Conference play as they rallied from behind for a 74-71 win over Alabama-Birmingham before a crowd of 3,815 at the Thomas Assembly Center.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Trailing by 18 points early in the second half, Louisiana Tech flipped a switch as the Lady Techsters clamped down defensively and recorded the fourth largest come-from-behind victory in program history defeating UAB 61-55 at Bartow Arena.
The Lady Techsters (8-7, 3-1 Conference USA) slept walked through the opening 20 minutes against UAB (7-8, 1-3 C-USA) and found themselves down 35-20 at the half. However, Tech played an inspired final 20 minutes of basketball in pulling off the improbable win.
