Children, adults can be victims

According to a release by the Louisiana Tech University School of Human Ecology, every seven minutes a child is bullied.

Because of that, the Tech group and the Center for Family and Children have decided to work together to present “Love is Louder than Bullying” from 6-7:30 p.m. Feb. 19 in the Bridge Community Church Auditorium.

Students, faculty react to new Grambling ordinance
POGUE.jpg

Sagging in the city of Grambling may become a costly fashion statement for Grambling State University students, their visitors and city residents.
On Thursday night, the Grambling City Council passed an ordinance making indecent exposure — the showing of undergarments and underwear — illegal. Failure to comply may result in fines of $150 to $500, community service and even time in jail.
Some university students feel attacked by the new law and others are happy that something is being done about a fashion statement they consider unacceptable.

The adage states, “It takes a village to raise a child,” and if that’s the case, this community is doing its part through Louisiana Tech University’s Science and Technology Education Center (SciTEC).
Seven exhibits were recently donated from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, though SciTEC had to cover the $3,800 shipping costs.  However, Lindsey Vincent, interim director of SciTEC, said she was able to find willing donors in CenturyLink, the Ruston Junior Auxiliary organization and the Ruston-Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Cursive to become extinct?

When it came to cursive writing, practice never made perfect for me. No matter how many penmanship workbooks my teachers put before me, or how many times I had to look at the charts with the dotted lines and arrows showing how the letter should be formed, I didn’t get it.
I never could get all the little fancy loops and swirls neatly on the page. I still can’t. Maybe subconsciously I always knew I was going to be a reporter, where sloppy handwriting can be an asset. Wandering eyes can’t copy your notes. Or maybe I inherited the bad cursive gene from my father.
