Give the gift of life

We search high and low, spending hours upon hours looking through various gift shops and department stores for that one thing that jumps off the shelves.
One thing to consider is no gift is more important than the gift of life.
Life Share Blood Center of Ruston is hoping for an increased supply of donated blood for the holidays. Rachael McIntrye, a donor recruiter for Life Share, said the holiday season is when blood is needed the most.

It’s almost here: Tech vs. Boise State

In arguably the most important game in Bulldogs’ history since a 1990 Independence Bowl-clinching win of 31-30 was achieved against Colorado State, the two teams have a couple of major objectives on the docket:
1-Wrap up a bowl berth.
2-Stay alive for a league championship.
A victory will achieve those goals.

Bayou Classic — throw out the records

They, indeed, don’t mean diddley.
On one side, you have Grambling State with its 8-1 record and already clinched Western Division title in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Not to mention six-game winning streak, seven No. 1 team and seven individual rankings in the league’s latest statistical report and far more points scored than any other school in the conference.
On the other side, there’s Southern with its 4-4 overall and Western Division runner-up record and seven team and two individual top listings on that stat chart.

Tulane’s long season ends Saturday

In the manner in which things have transpired over the past several months, one couldn’t fault head coach Chris Scelfo and his team for being thankful about it finally coming to a close.
To say it’s been a trying campaign for the Green Wave would be tantamount to exclaiming that USC has a load of talent.
Hurricane Katrina, new home in Ruston, injury woes, turnovers at critical times and—of course, one road game after another.
Name it and it’s been on the back of these Tulane coaches and players this fall.

Cartoonists beat top inventors

In the 25-plus years that Susan and I have been together, I’ve learned a lot from my little Texan.
For example, you can eat rice without having to add gravy.
Through Susan the worlds of fried rice, Spanish rice, wild rice and brown rice entered my vast food repertoire.
Susan also showed me that fish doesn’t have to be fried to taste good. Granted, fried fish is a southern tradition that tastes absolutely wonderful. But did you know that it is also good baked and broiled? It’s also a lot better for you — that is if you keep from doctoring it up too much.
