It’s a return home for Louisiana Tech University and homecoming for Grambling State University on Saturday.

Kickoff time is set for 3 p.m.

CedarTown is a fundraiser for Cedar Creek that helps to fund the school’s immediate needs, Drewett said.

in

Ruston is properly positioning itself to capitalize on the coming wave of economic globalization. I know this sounds like gobbledygook, but it really isn’t.
This past Sunday morning I watched a televised interview of four Chief Executive Officers of American based companies that are major players in the global economy. That is, they are American corporations operating in foreign countries where a significant percentage of their revenues are derived outside of the USA. The companies represented were IBM, Alcoa, Google, and Coca Cola. I encourage you to read more at www.cnn.com/gps.

Election results paint no clear picture

in

The saying goes “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

This amendment, brought to the table by Rep. Rick Gallot, raises the cap on the amount of severance tax money parishes can get back from the state for gas and oil exploration.
