Courtesy critical on the road

Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

One of the things I love most about living in Ruston is how considerate and courteous people are here in the piney hills of North Louisiana.
That kindness shows in almost all phases of life but one. I was reminded of that several times yesterday.
The streets and roads of Lincoln Parish can be a danger zone if you don’t practice the most important rule of all: defensive driving. That’s unfortunately because some drivers can be outright offensive with their driving.

The age of the cyber bully

in
Brooks, Brenda.jpg

When we hear the word “bullying,” we do not think of harassment. Instead, we think of schoolyard days, when one kid who is the bigger student mocks or says something ugly about another student. The same student who takes food off of your plate, or steals the playground equipment. However, we have moved towards a new phenomenon known as “cyberbullying.” This has taken bullying from causing bruises and tears, to having children of various ages take their lives, and the lives of those around them.

Kindergarten
The kindergarten classes at Simsboro are preparing to celebrate their 100th day of school. Each child has been asked to bring a poster of 100 things to display in our school halls. We are continuing to read every day, as well as learning new things in math, like adding and subtracting.
Also, we will be learning about the great state we live in, as well as the fun tradition of Mardi Gras. We are letting the good times roll in the “Boro!”

G-Men: ‘Thumbs up’ on recruits

Williams, staff members pleased with caliber of signees

GRAMBLING — After watching Grambling State University’s football team play last year, it wouldn’t have taken a seasoned recruiter to realize one of the priorities for the Tigers’ 2013 signing class.
With inconsistency from start to finish, the G-Men struggled in the placekicking department, so much that it proved to be the difference in deciding the outcome of no fewer than four games (the Tigers wound up with only one win).
But that problem should be solved for the next four years.

’Dogs put win streaks on TAC floor tonight

in

Two names on the University of Texas-San Antonio roster have been resonating with the coaching staff at Louisiana Tech University this week:
Kannon Burrage and Michael Hale III.
They’re two of the top five scorers in the Western Athletic Conference this season and of primary concern to Head Coach Michael White when his Bulldogs set up on defense in tonight’s 7 p.m. league game at the Thomas Assembly Center.
“We’ve got to stop those two, for sure,” White said. “They’re of major concern to us. They’re two guards who have really been shooting the ball well for UTSA this year.”
