GSU has ’Corn on home turf

The G-Men will play host to the ‘Corn on Saturday at Robinson Stadium in a regular season finale for both programs.
On paper, there’s little significance with this meeting, what with both clubs out of the league title scene; and record-wise overall, Grambling (3-7) is already assured of more losses than victories and Alcorn (4-4) is trying to avoid having a losing record.
Nevertheless, pride weighs heavily on both sides.

Wonderland warms vitality of downtown

A canvas of the downtown merchants who participated by staying open later and decorating their stores shows their efforts paid off.
There were a number of events which made up the Winter Wonderland Weekend. One of the most successful was the Winter Wonderland Snow Storm in the Park.
“When we started planning this event, we tried to come up with things we had never done before,” Burt said. “We really didn’t know what to expect with the manmade snow storm, but we had huge crowds of children throughout the afternoon to pitch snowballs like never before.”

IfM sparkles during crystal anniversary

Clausen complimented Reneau for his visionary idea to brainstorm the concept of the IfM 15 years ago.
“The key for a visionary to be successful is that they need room to think, to move and to grow,” Clausen said. “Dan has no roadblocks, and people are opening doors for him to make this university an international success. The key here is leadership.”
Clausen added that the possibilities for the future of the IfM were unimaginable.

Shopping cycle is unavoidable

I, personally, am attempting to resist the pressures of early Christmas gift advertisements and wait until the two weeks preceding the holiday to make purchases. OK, so there might be fewer items on the shelves by this time, but that also means fewer choices from among which to decide. Of course, this is not to say that if something catches my attention, I will resist forking out a few dollars to buy it. There are several upcoming opportunities to browse interesting goodies for potential gifts. Christmas in Dubach, just 12 miles north of Ruston, will kick off at 10 a.m.

Russ Award nominations sought

Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce Programs and Communications Manager Nancy Bergeron said the recipient could be involved in a wide range of pursuits in order to qualify.
“It is often the case that the person selected for the award is not one who is seeking publicity or public recognition for the contributions he or she makes to the community,” Bergeron said. “It is rather the values which the nominee supports in everyday life that make the person a strong candidate for the award.”
