New music concentration at Tech

in
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

Allen Toussaint. Jimmie Davis. Fats Domino. Dr. John. Al Hirt. Pete Fountain. The Marsalis family. The Neville family.
There’s never been a songwriting shortage in Louisiana. Music is as much a part of our state as is crawfish, crabs, jambayla and gumbo.

Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

As Domestic Violence Awareness Month draws to an end, I am considering the many awareness events, talks and presentations Domestic Abuse Resistance Team has hosted this month.
There were 10 different prayer or candlelight vigils throughout the seven parishes served by DART.
There were several other events in each parish, including presentations and speeches to area churches, schools, businesses and organizations.
In Lincoln Parish alone, DART has made over 15 presentations this month.

Tech HOF is big deal to recipients

in
Davis, Ok 2015.jpg

Louisiana Tech University’s latest group of Hall of Fame inductees have had their fair share of honors through the years.
From being chosen to All-American teams to being recognized for their record-setting feats or valuable roles in championship performances.
But being named to their university’s athletic HOF, well, it just might not get any better.
This much is locked in and guaranteed: it’s a moment that will last and be appreciated forever.
No better proof of this was discovered unexpectedly when I was about to exit Tech’s 2015 enshrinement ceremonies on Saturday morning.

Bulldogs race past Rice

Henderson, Taylor both turn in 100-yard receiving games

HOUSTON — Louisiana Tech appears to be bowl bound after feasting on a 42-17 win at Rice Friday night
Tech’s first win ever at Rice keeps the Bulldogs (6-3, 4-1 in Conference USA) in control of their own destiny in C-USA’s West Division and made the team bowl eligible for the fourth time in the last five years.
One more victory should all but guarantee the opportunity for the Bulldogs to play in back-to-back bowl games for the second time in school history.

Ouachita rolls over Ruston, 48-21

in
110115 RHS Thurman C.jpg

MONROE — Ouachita Parish High School slipped past Ruston to take over sole possession of second place in District 2-5A Friday night as troubles holding on to the football doomed the Bearcats.
“The main thing is — any time you turn the ball over seven times and allow the other team 360 rushing yards, it’s going to be tough to win.”
And that was the scenario the Bearcats faced as Ouachita marched to a 41-28 win over RHS at the Lions Den.

MONROE — He died earlier this year in a skiing accident in Colorado.
But that doesn’t mean former Ruston High School football player Jack Lindsey is forgotten.
Far from it, in fact.
RHS students showed their admiration and love for Lindsey and his family Friday night as they donned “Fly High Jack” T-shirts and cheered on the Bearcats at Ouachita Parish High School.
Lindsey, an 18-year-old 2014 Ruston High School graduate, was an Air Force Academy 4th Class Cadet when he died on Jan. 24 while skiing at Keystone Resort in Summit County, Colorado.

Arcadia holds off Cedar Creek

in
110115 Creek Jackson Miller C.jpg

ARCADIA — So close, so far away.
That was the feeling the Cedar Creek Cougars left the game with Friday night after dropping a 34-32 District 1-1A decision at Arcadia.
Cedar Creek’s two-point conversion attempt with 44 seconds remaining failed to hit paydirt, allowing the Hornets to escape with the hardfought win.
“They overloaded one side, so we tried a throwback pass to the other side,” said Cougars coach Ben Haddox of that play. “But Arcadia had a strong rush and (Cedar Creek quarterback) Huff (McIntosh) had to tuck it and try to run for it. It just didn’t work out for us.”
