Caney Lake Good Sammers Club

The cold, rainy day at the Pavilion RV Park in West Monroe on Jan. 23-26, 2013 didn’t dampen Nellie and Emory Ambrose and Mary Lynn and Jimmy Stothart’s warm welcome to the Caney Lake Good Sammers.
The attendees had “stone soup.” First, there is a stone boiling in the water which doesn’t really have much flavor. But then, people think of all sorts of canned vegetables they have in their rigs, with some meat from the hosts and “voila” it’s the cold-weather. Of course, the salads and desserts added the crowning touch.

The more responsibilities, the better Trey Hadnot likes it.
Pressure?
What pressure?
If Louisiana Tech University’s men are to fare well and finish high in the 2013 Western Athletic Conference indoor track and field meet that starts today, much of it will likely rest on the shoulders of the former Ruston High School star.

Stanley: Team approach is key

in

For Gary Stanley, the 2013 Western Athletic Conference indoor track and field meet is as much about non-first place ribbons as it is about times and distances.
“This weekend, it’s about points and not as much about how many first places we have,” said the veteran head coach of Louisiana Tech University’s traditionally successful program. “It’s how we do with the second, third and other places to help us get the points needed to finish high. It’s about how well our athletes do in their second and third events outside of their regular events.

By game’s end, the ‘Dogs had well over 100 points, ending up with an 118-48 win over the Mustangs (7-24) in front of an estimated 3,700 fans at the Thomas Assembly Center.
