in
Tech faces Central Baptist College tonight
011013 naheem c.jpg

Judging from an “on paper” perspective, one would figure that Louisiana Tech University’s streak for not having reached the century mark just might end tonight.
It’s been 117 games since the Bulldogs (23-3) last scored 100 or more points, that being 10 contests deep into the 2009-10 campaign when a 102-96 victory was registered against Centenary College.
But tonight (7 p.m.), the Western Athletic Conference-leading ’Dogs step outside of league play for a home game against an opponent that has been extra charitable in yielding points this season.

022013 Jerry Pass C.jpg

Jerry Melton was “on” for Ruston High School Tuesday night and at the right time.
The Bearcats’ Class 5A All-State candidate scored a season-best 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the District 2-5A runner-ups to a 77-47 win over H.L. Bourgeois in the bi-district round of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association playoffs.
Melton could hardly miss, ending up with an 80 percentage from the field and connecting on several shots late in the first half that helped snuff out some early momentum by H.L. Bourgeois (22-9).

Union Parish gator hunters join cast of popular reality show

in
1-3.jpg

The new breed of “Swamp People” is coming straight out of Union Parish and might just be the next big thing. Marion residents Jeromy Pruitt and David LaDart have been hunting alligators for a long time, but back in September, they were asked to do what they love best on film for the History Channel’s popular show “Swamp People.”
“When Jeromy (Pruitt) asked me to audition with him, I did it because I didn’t think we had a chance,” LaDart said. “I was more than a little surprised when we got the call back.”
LaDart started taking his stepson, Pruitt, alligator hunting when he was just 8 years old.
“I had been doing it a while by then,” LaDart said. “I didn’t have much growing up so I got in it for the money and the meat.”

Katie Hoolan is many things to many people, but maybe she should add juggler to her list, too.
Homemaker, mother, firefighter and award-winning worker — Hoolan manages to balance it all.
Hoolan, primary vet assistant at the Ruston Animal Clinic, was named in January as the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association Support Person of the Year for 2012, much to the delight of veterinarians Marion Sewell and Marilyn Roane, who nominated Hoolan for the honor.
