Bedford, director of the university’s Office of Service Learning. “It’s not about the credit for the school. It’s all about students getting great opportunities to supplement their academic experience with us.”

Month of March roars in like a lion

Hotard, Steven.jpg

March has roared in, bringing windy and cold conditions. We can only hope the saying “If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb” is true and the month will end warm and sunny.
March is such a changeable month, with warm spring-like weather mixed with cold and windy conditions. Plant protection is usually necessary this time of year. High winds and a warm sun on cold days result in plant damage through desiccation (evaporative water loss exceeds water absorption). This is the drying out of the plant.

Dubach rejoices in state crown

For Dubach High School, a 30-year wait is over.
That’s how long it had been between its first and most recent Louisiana High School Athletic Association state championships in girls’ basketball for the Lincoln Parish school.
The drought ended last weekend when the Lady Hornets outlasted Saline, 60-58, for the 2013 crown in Class C.
Led by the outstanding offensive work of guard Sueterria Key, Dubach rallied back from a double-digit deficit in the first half to hold on in the final minute of play and wind up as the most successful team for its class during the 2012-13 campaign.

Mummies offer new perspective

The average American diet is going to kill us. Or, at least that’s what we’re led to believe every other month when one staple of most people’s diet or another is called into question for causing heart disease, diabetes, cancer or other illness.
I mean, with all the accusations against food it’s hard to keep up with what you should and should not eat. Most days, it seems like salad and water are probably your best bets — but, of course, unless you’re doing it right eating just those things can kill you as well.

GRAMBLING — Grambling State University’s football practice field recently received a “facelift.”
With the playing surface accustomed to perennial use during the fall and spring, the Tigers’ field had taken its fair share of wear and tear.
But now, thanks to a upgrade process called turfplaning, the field will be like new when the G-Men kick off their fall training camp ritual.
In June of 2012, a New Roads-based company called AlternativeturfPlaner leveled out and “cleansed” the playing field at Cougar Stadium on the campus of Cedar Creek High School.
