This past week I went to a coffeehouse to get a Thanksgiving blend coffee, always looking forward to nurturing my coffee addiction with the latest holiday blend offering. The Thanksgiving blend was nowhere to be found though. Three days before Thanksgiving, you would think that the shop would still be decked out in pumpkins and cornucopias, but this was not the case at all. The business already carried forth with their Christmas blend.

In the final minutes after a 26-0 season-eliminating loss to Mandeville High on Friday night, disappointment and heartache enveloped Ruston High’s football team.
The Bearcats had come so far, only to miss out on an opportunity to host a Class 5A Louisiana High School Athletic Association semifinal contest at James Stadium later this week.
No matter. The 2011 season was still a big success for the ’Cats, who became a model for resiliency.

Louisiana Tech University’s football team added some more footnotes to its impressive 2011 resume on Sunday.
In the weekly USA Today/American Football Coaches Association national poll voted on by a panel of coaches, the Bulldogs was one of 35 teams to receive votes.
It marks the first time since week No. 13 of the 1999 campaign that a Tech team had earned votes in a national poll; in that year, the Bulldogs ranked No. 15 after a 58-17 win over the University of Louisiana-Monroe to reach a 7-3 mark on the year.

LARAMIE, Wyo. — The Louisiana Tech men’s basketball (2-3) team dropped the last game of the Jim Thorpe Classic to host-school Wyoming (6-1) 73-58 Sunday night at Arena-Auditorium, as sophomore guard Cordarius Johnson scored 16 points, 12 of them in the second half.
After the Bulldogs tied the game at 6-6 at the 16:27 mark of the first half on a three-pointer by sophomore Kenyon McNeail, the Cowboys went on a 12-2 run over the next 6:10 to take an 18-8 advantage. The run was ended on a three-point play from senior guard Trevor Gaskins.

Fewer voters show up at polls

November election participation down 45% from October

A significantly smaller number of Lincoln Parish residents turned out for the General Election on Nov. 19 than in the Oct. 22 Primary Election.
Lincoln Parish Registrar of Voters Dianna Stone said this was not surprising.
“I knew there would be a lower turnout than in the Oct. 22 election, because so many of the races were determined during that first election,” Stone said.
For the General Election, 19.14 percent — or 5,047 — of the parish’s 26,372 registered voters cast their votes.
