Brayden Pye knows he’s getting $1,000 for his innovation of a backyard game “The Recycle Relay,” but what he’s really hoping for is the $10,000 that will come with winning first place.
Clif Bar, a renowned health food company, sponsored a Backyard Game of the Year contest several months ago. Essentially, kids have to invent their own game and enter the idea, along with photos and a short synopsis into the contest.
“My mom saw the contest on the Internet and asked me if I wanted to enter,” Brayden said. “I said sure.”
A line of about 30 protesters marched down Trenton Street in downtown Ruston Friday afternoon with signs that read “Justice for Joe.”
Terion Glenn (pictured above) is the older sister of Joseph Glenn, who was involved in a police shooting and subsequently killed when he allegedly pulled a BB gun resembling a nine-millimeter on Ruston police officers on Dec. 29 at the Hampton Inn on North Trenton Street.
Glenn said she and her family and friends are frustrated because they have not been allowed to see any police reports or related documents pertaining to the incident.
