More than a year and a half after its inception, the Grambling Historic Preservation committee submitted its report on the history of the city of Grambling to the state.
As a result, state officials, who reviewed the overall report, now recognize the city as a certified local government.
That has some perks. City officials can now apply for grants dedicated to the historic preservation.

Afternoon shadows and twilight amblings

Hollis,Sallie 2017.jpg

During a performance by my chorus last Sunday night, one of my singing sisters experienced a strange phenomenon. And, no, I’m not talking about the woman on the back row who got faint and had to sit down on the floor while we were singing. (You know, the show must go on.)

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Grambling State University junior guard Shakyla Hill surpassed the 1,000-point plateau as she scored a career-high 26 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Lady Tigers fell to Alabama, 73-49, on Sunday afternoon at Coleman Coliseum.

Former Bulldog Trent Taylor is one tough NFL rookie

in
121017 Trent Taylor C.jpg

Trent Taylor is an enigma in the NFL.
He’s 5-8 and 175 pounds and that’s probably only on days when Muscle Milk is consumed in record amounts.
The fact that he’s on a 53-player NFL roster, much less starting, may prompt the disbelievers to check his Wikipedia bio several times.
You sure he isn’t a ball boy or a concession worker at Levi Stadium?
Nope.
The all-time leading receiver at Louisiana Tech University is more than just another draftee (fifth round) wasting time on the team’s depth chart and hoping he isn’t selling insurance at this time next year.

“And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment.” Philippians 1:9
On the day of her birth, March 3, 1922, at the Oaks Plantation in Keatchie, LA, Judith's grandmother picked up a pencil and marked this verse in her Bible with an “X” and declared it, “Judith's verse” at the bottom of that same page. This was her life verse, the one that was prayed over her, and her love did indeed abound.
