Salvadore Liberto has been writing, recording and performing original music for more than 20 years. He’s released four studio albums and has played at many performing arts centers, theaters and colleges across the United States. I was first introduced to the music of the gifted musician as he performed at the Charles W. Eismann Center for Performing Arts in Richardson, Texas.

Carter, Bill.jpg

America only thought that jumping off or falling from the fiscal cliff was going to be trouble. The trail our government is walking down, currently, in pursuit of “gun control” could result in a horrendous slide down a treacherous slippery slope.

Just ask Kenneth “Speedy” Smith or Raheem Appleby about being tagged with “Stars of the Game” labels after Louisiana Tech University battled back to knock down Idaho, 72-66, in a Western Athletic Conference game at the Thomas Assembly Center on Thursday nigh.
