in
010518 Art1 C.jpg

Who doesn’t love a good story? And, who better to tell it than an artist?
Ruston Artisans recently announced their newest exhibition, “The Mirror of Another” by Joshua Chambers, a Louisiana Tech University alumni.
A public reception will be held from 6 to 8. tonight at 203 W. Alabama in Ruston.
The show will run through Jan. 26.
Chambers is a painter who works in acrylic, pen and ink and printmaking.
Described as elusive and happily odd, Chambers’ narrative works echo the philosophy of absurdist playwrights and deconstructed sets.

Grambling supermarket opening delayed

in

The long anticipated opening of Legends Square Supermarket in Grambling has been pushed back to June, Grambling Mayor Ed Jones said.

“That’s why there’s a delay.”

LA Tech loses third straight as UTSA takes 78-76 victory
021917 Tech Boykins gets ready C.jpg

It was another heartbreaker of a finish for Louisiana Tech as Texas-San Antonio hit a contested floater in traffic with one second left that downed the Bulldogs, 78-76, on Thursday night inside the Thomas Assembly Center.
Tech (9-7, 0-3 C-USA) came into the game needing to take care of the basketball. They did that, turning the ball over just eight times.
They also needed to guard beyond the arc as UTSA (9-7, 2-1 C-USA) came in as the best three-point shooting team in the league. They did that as well, allowing the Roadrunners to shoot a meager 6-of-26 from deep.

The only true rehabilitation for prisoners

Got a call Wednesday afternoon from my son Joshua. Heard his mom in the background ordering a Big Mac. No big whoop, right? Wrong. Very, VERY big whoop.
Like every morning for the past 5.5 years, Joshua woke up Wednesday in custody of the state of Tennessee. He knew his release was close, but hadn’t been given a hard release date. When one of the staff at the facility told him to get his stuff together Wednesday morning, Josh said he told them they shouldn’t be picking at him like that.

Booklet sheds light on religious freedoms

in
Hawley, Heather.jpg

In my high school, we held regular prayer sessions — student guided, of course — and were open with our religious club meetings.
This was normal in my school of 350 students.
It was only when I was older that I learned that there was confusion in most schools about what was and was not allowed.
It’s a sensitive subject, and it does not only concern Christians. People of all religions are affected by the rules put in place by the government to ensure fair and honest treatment of students.

Remembering Joe Johnson

The extensive list of accolades former Grambling State University president Joseph Johnson achieved cannot go unnoticed.
Johnson, who served from 1977 until 1991, participated in the push for a consent decree between the state and the U.S. Department of Justice, helped bring in a record-setting 7,000 students, successfully created the School of Nursing in 1983 and the first doctoral developmental education program in 1984.
And those are just a few of his accomplishments.

GRAMBLING — It was a historic night on Wednesday at the Fredrick C. Hobdy Assembly Center as Shakyla Hill etched her name into the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball record books.

The junior guard finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 steals and 10 assists to become the fourth women’s basketball player to achieve that feat.
