The Ruston Daily Leader congratulates to the Louisiana Tech University “Bowldogs” for another outstanding season and for accomplishing something the team had never done before: win back-to-back bowl games.
The numbers all added up for the Bulldogs in the 47-28 New Orleans Bowl victory on Saturday, starting with the final score. Other important numbers in the win and Tech’s season included:
• Tech set or tied 17 different New Orleans Bowl records in the win.
It’s not every day that we take time to celebrate the women who have influenced our lives and helped to shape us into the people we are today.
The modern idea of the holiday was celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, Va. Jarvis’ campaign to have Mother’s Day recognized as a holiday began in 1905, when her mother passed.
In the beginning her mission was to honor her own mother by continuing her work, and to set aside a day to honor mothers — “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.”
The trash and dumpster situation in Lincoln Parish has been one debated throughout governmental meetings for years.
But luckily the Lincoln Parish Police Jury is taking further action in an attempt to please all residents.
Parish Administrator Courtney Hall said the one the residents should keep in mind is the process it takes in order to make something happen.
The Lincoln Parish Police Jury can’t just move a dumpster from one location without having another location to place it, and while some residents wish to see dumpsters removed completely right now, that just isn’t an option.
