in
Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

This week, DART received the welcome news that we could apply for a small amount of money from the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement, to be designated for training and awareness over the next six months. We leapt at the chance to specifically address various needs for education in our own agency and in the community. We applied for the funds and I drove over to Shreveport to submit our application, explain what we would use the money for and answer questions.

Run for the Wall stirs feelings

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

I never served in the military. Focused on college in the early 1980s, there was no conflict going on at the time to stir those patriotic feelings that lead many people to enlisting in a service.

Davis, OK.jpg

But Cedar Creek’s softball squad did the unthinkable recently by capturing the Class 1A Louisiana High School Athletic Association title with a 7-4 win over Catholic-Pointe Coupee.

After his Bearcats struggled in their spring scrimmage against Calvary Baptist on Friday at Louisiana Tech’s Joe Aillet Stadium, you might think Ruston High School head coach Brad Laird would be unhappy with what he saw.
Think again.
“I liked what I saw — I didn’t see any injuries,” Laird said with a gleam in his eye. “We stayed healthy. Calvary is a good football team. Did we make some mistakes — yeah. But we did some good things, too. The most important time for us starts June 2 with offseason conditioning.
