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.”

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.

Tech, GSU in season finales

“It’s important for us to finish out with a win and have some confidence when we start the spring,” said Bicknell. “And we want to win for the seniors, who have given so much to the program during their careers at Tech.
“Bottom line is that we just need a win. It’s been a tough season, but we get another chance to finish out with a win and that’s our primary focus for this week.”

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.”

Marketplace is a win-win fund-raiser

’Dogs: frustration continues

Try as they might to hang a “W” in their final home game of the season and get a much-deserved uplift in an otherwise dismal three months of competition, Tech was edged out by Fresno State 34-27.
It wasn’t for a lack of trying, head coach Jack Bicknell noting afterwards that “I couldn’t have asked for more out of our players.
“They came out with a great attitude and effort and they didn’t stop fighting until the very end.”
A game that had its share of flips and flops wasn’t decided until the very end, either.

Shoppers swarm area on Black Friday

They were so popular, Milton added, that by 10 a.m., few options were left.
“The custom order desktops were all we had left, and we don’t have many of them,” he said. “This is our biggest one-day sale event.”
Sam Goody manager Jeff Liner said items were also hopping off of his shelves Friday morning.
“The iPod and PlayStation 3 accessories are our major sales,” Liner said. “We had a sale on our MP3 players; they are regularly $99.99 and sold for $39.99. We’re already sold out of them. They went quick.”

Christmas parade to wind through town

The parade will begin at 6 p.m. at Louisiana Tech University’s Joe Aillet Stadium on the east side of the parking lot. It will wind down Alabama Avenue, head down Trenton Street, make a turn at California Avenue, go down Vienna Street, and then turn back on Alabama Avenue.
“Friday is the deadline, but people who still want to put floats in the parade can sign up afterwards,” Jackson said. “They just have to pay an extra $5 to get in.”
The fee is $25 per entry, and applications are available at the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce or by logging onto www.rustonjaycees.com.

JA jingles bells for area runners

“I’ve talked to some runners, and they say they prefer to run in the winter months,” Junior

She added the race will begin and end at Railroad Park in Ruston.
“We will go in front of The Ruston Daily Leader and toward Louisiana Tech University and back,” she said. “Orange juice and water will be available, along with light refreshments from Super 1 Foods in Ruston.”
