Techsters start Summitt era with win

in

NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Despite committing too many turnovers for head coach Tyler Summitt’s liking, Louisiana Tech found itself within striking distance with less than three minutes remaining in its season opener on the road against defending Southland Conference champion Stephen F. Austin.
Trailing by two with the shot clock running down, the rookie head coach turned to another rookie as freshman Tiara Davenport hit back-to-back 3-pointers during a 45 second span and the Lady Techsters pulled out a 76-69 win against the Lady Jacks before 1,833 fans at the William R. Johnson Coliseum.

Residents attempting to overtake a school bus either in the city limits of Ruston or in Lincoln Parish will face hefty fines.
James Payton, transportation supervisor for the Lincoln Parish School Board, said bus drivers have a form for when these incidents occur.
“When at all possible we try to make right hand drop-offs,” Payton said. “There are some cases where a child has to cross the street. But when it comes to places like U.S. Highway 167 and Louisiana Highway 33, we may ask the driver to pick up going one direction and to drop off going the other direction.

Veterans Week: How does that sound?

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

This is a few days later than the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the day we remember and celebrated as Veterans Day. Yet folks across our land are still mentioning and remembering the brave. We remembered those who signed a blank check for service to our country, not knowing with certainty what would be inserted. Some would come home, appreciated in varying degrees. (Remember the ignominious reception given to some Vietnam veterans?) Some came back as martyrs for liberty; some with medals and citations.

I have an anniversary this week.
On Friday I will celebrate six months since my latest surgery, and I’m happy to report that things are going extremely well as I slowly recover from that ankle fusion. Of course there have been surprises along the way, but at the end of the day, things seem to be progressing like they should. I’m a grateful gal.
