“I tell my players, ‘You crawl before you walk and walk before you run,’” former Bulldog Matt Nelson said. “I’m also preaching, it’s about quality not quantity. I think that’s important for them to know to be successful.”
Nelson played for Tech from 2009-12 and tried out for National Football League teams the Cleveland Browns and the New England Patriots.

Simsboro council speaks on meters

in
Foster: They’re not worth putting in

The main topics of issues at the Simsboro Town Hall meeting held at 6 p.m. on Monday were broken water meters and the high volume being used by the village.
Sybil Foster, mayor of Simsboro, asked aldermen if there would be an issue with selling the plastic water meters purchased by the village.
“They are plastic and not really worth putting in because so many are failing already,” she said. “We are going to have to replace several because some are running too fast, some are not registering at all.”

Fall fair has now hit the air

Judd, Cathy 2014.jpg

There are many things I love about fall; cool weather, the beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves, shorter days, and the State Fair. When I was in high school my Uncle Tom had close ties with the Cooperative Extension Service. He would encourage me and my sister, Laurie, to enter our summer arts and crafts projects. We would help our Mommom can jams, jelly’sjellies, and vegetables and we did a few sewing projects. We entered theses items in the “State Fair of Louisiana.” It really made us proud to bring home a ribbon of any color, because competition was very stiff!

Congratulations to both the Louisiana Tech University football team and its fans for a job well done.

The Bulldogs have played three home games this season, winning all three.

Even better, all three games have seen more than 20,000 fans in attendance at Joe Aillet Stadium and two of those contests featured top five attendance figures for The Joe.

That’s history being made for the Bulldogs.
