Celebrating local artists

The number of artistically talented people in Lincoln Parish is astounding, and the North Central Louisiana Arts Council makes it their duty to give these artists an outlet to show their work with the public.

Wilbert Ellis: Our parish’s true humanitarian
Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

He has been honored from Ruston to New Orleans and from Omaha, Nebraska, to Baton Rouge.
With 700-plus victories (737, according to Wikipedia), he’s one of the winningest coaches in NCAA baseball history.
But far more than simply being known as the former, highly successful brain trust of Grambling State University’s diamond fortunes, Ellis is a friend to all: Young, old, African-American, Caucasian, Yankee fans, non-Yankee fans.
For the Ruston native and graduate of Lincoln High and GSU, all men are truly equal and loved.

A safety with 14:55 remaining in the contest pushed Grambling’s lead to 30 points as the Tigers appeared to be in for an easy final quarter.
It turned out to be anything but.
Alcorn State rallied to score 22 straight points in the fourth quarter before the G-Men buckled down in the final two minutes to hold on for a 40-32 win.
