Detectors part of city revival effort

Residents who live in the area South of California Street were probably at least a little surprised to have fire fighters and other community members knocking on their doors on a sunny Saturday afternoon. They quickly discovered that they weren’t there to warn of a fire, but to make sure that area residences were prepared if a fire ever did occur.
RFD Public Education Officer Eric Brazzel said that while the department has offered a smoke detector service for some time many people probably don’t know about it, so what one particular organization has done is great.
The southern part of Ruston has been on the community service radar of local organizations for a while now because of the work by students at the Louisiana Tech University School of Architecture, who have lovingly dubbed the area SOCA and were also on hand to help out Saturday.

Tech’s Paige: A perfect leader

in

It’s 2005 and Olajuwon Paige, having just capped an outstanding prep career at Aiken High School, is working in the fast food industry.
While delivering orders of cherry limeades and extra long cheese coneys as a car hop at Sonic (without the roller skates), Paige thought back to his high school career. He thought about his days as an All-State selection as a quarterback in the state of South Carolina and being named Most Valuable Player of the Down Under Bowl, a showcase for top high school players that takes place in Australia.
It’s tough taking a year off from playing the game that’s brought so much success in a person’s life. Having played football since the age of five, Paige needed football and didn’t want to feel, in his opinion, as a waste of talent.

RHS drops homecoming game

in

GRAMBLING — It wasn’t that the Golden Tornadoes came out flattened Ruston at James Stadium Friday night.
Instead, it was the Bearcats’ own flat play that cost them the game against previously-winless Sulphur.
Miscues in the form of three turnovers and a pair of failed fourth-down conversions were too much for Ruston to overcome as Class 5A Sulphur took a 25-15 win to dampen the Bearcats’ Homecoming festivities.

GRAMBLING — Fred Hearn, in his first year as head coach of Grambling High School’s football team, had a good early week feeling about Friday night’s home game against Madison.
His Kittens (1-3) were coming off of their first victory (18-8 over Northwood-Lena) of the season and were preparing to face a winless opponent at Robinson Stadium.
But the “big play” bug bit Grambling and the Jaguars exited Lincoln Parish with a 28-6 victory.
