Ice bucket challenge, all the rage

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

It’s the hottest craze going right now — the ice bucket challenge.
The idea is simple: Take a bucket of ice water, dump it over your head, record it and post the video on social media.
It’s cold, it’s fun and it’s contagious. But these ice bucket challenges and similar social media-powered stunts also are raising awareness and money for causes such as Lou Gehrig’s disease, breast cancer and a camp for kids who have lost their fathers to war.

Linzie Hebert still competing at high level

in
Davis, OK.jpg

Her outstanding track career at Ruston High School is over, but Linzie Hebert is far from finished.
The same passion and dedication that she exhibited as a Lady Bearcat distance runner (1,600-meter and 3,200-m runs) is now being used in the highly competitive world of triathlons.
Linzie is certainly showing that she still has the competitive fire.
She was the overall female champion at the recent RiverCities Triathlon and then placed No. 11 in the 30-34 division of last weekend ‘s National Triathlon Championships.

G-Men upbeat after scrimmage

GSU’s Fobbs pleased with showing from his team
GSU.jpg

First-year Grambling State head football coach Broderick Fobbs believes in playing things close to the vest.
He’s made it clear he’s not interested in putting out a depth chart before the week of the Tigers’ Aug. 30 season opener at Lamar and that he might not name a starting quarterback for that contest until shortly before gametime.
Fobbs has also made sure to keep Grambling’s schemes under wraps.
He’s also made that clear to his players, as was shown during a press conference following GSU’s intrasquad scrimmage.

Lincoln Parish: best sports area in state

in
4mugs.jpg

If the jury is still pending on the best sports place in Louisiana, allow me to cast a vote for Lincoln Parish.
I have two major pieces of evidence for arguing in favor of our area.
First, there’s the tried and true offering of the representation of Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame members.
Lincoln Parish leads the way.
