Hosts Margaret and Ed Aston and Jerrel Huey thought The Thomas Linge Community Center in Oak Grove would be a good place for the campers to go Sept. 24-27.
Everyone was familiar with the center until they pulled up to register. The usual parking lot was being blacktopped and striped, so the group had to meander a little to get to the area for the Wednesday night’s brown bag supper.

Teaching teachers a whole new way to teach has been the role taken on by three professors at Louisiana Tech University.
Libby Manning, Kim Kimbell-Lopez and Carrice Cummins have been working for more than two years to not only bring additional funding to local elementary schools, but to introduce new ideas, ideas which, according to the trio, have fully been embraced by schools like Glen View and Cypress Springs Elementary.
“The reason for our success is their willingness to take this on,” Cummins said.

Enterprise Center presents quilt exhibition

Bustamante, Hannah.jpg

The Louisiana Tech University Enterprise Center Gallery is pleased to showcase a series of new quilted works by Damon Caldwell titled “I’m Planning to be Spontaneous … Tomorrow.”
