Louisiana Tech University’s streaking Bulldogs close out their home schedule for the 2012-13 season this week.
If any team deserves a huge turnout of fans for two games to be held at the Thomas Assembly Center starting Thursday night and ending Saturday night, it’s the ’Dogs.
Tech is one of the top teams in the country with Top 35 rankings in both the Associated Press and USA Today polls, plus remains atop the Western Athletic Conference standings with a 14-0 mark and is 24-3 overall.
Those 24 wins are the most for a Bulldogs’ squad since the 2009-10 season.
When it comes to Louisiana, there isn’t much better than a big platter of spicy boiled crawfish, served up with potatoes and corn — unless it’s helping a child.
Area residents have the opportunity to enjoy a hearty meal of the freshwater crustaceans and assist in raising money for the March of Dimes by participating in the 4th Annual March of Dimes Crawfish Boil and Silent Auction on March 15. The event will be held from 4-7 p.m. at the Community Trust Bank Financial Center on North Trenton Street.
Ruston is known throughout the state for the sweet juicy peaches that led previous generations to start the Louisiana Peach Festival.
Each June, thousands of people — both Lincoln Parish residents and visitors to the area — head out to the festival to get a taste of something sweet. Whether they’re after a unique gift at the arts and crafts market, a sweet treat from a vendor or some tunes played by one of several featured bands, there is something for everyone at the festival.
