Tech streak over, busy week ahead

After back-to-back wins over Nevada on Friday and Saturday, the Bulldogs (19-13, 5-3) were an 11-5 victim of the Wolf Pack (15-16, 5-4).
Tech scored four runs in its last three innings, but it wasn’t enough to make up for a sluggish beginning. Nevada had a 3-1 advantage after four innings, then went up 8-1 after six before the ‘Dogs added on a run in the seventh and then three in the eighth.
It was too little, too late.

Tech streak over, busy week ahead

Louisiana Tech University’s Rally ‘Dogs couldn’t make up for a slow start at J.C. Love Field on Sunday afternoon.
Tech scored four runs in its last three innings, but it wasn’t enough to make up for a sluggish beginning. Nevada had a 3-1 advantage after four innings, then went up 8-1 after six before the ‘Dogs added on a run in the seventh and then three in the eighth.

Winds of change blowing

I recently made a decision that looms large in the life of both my wife, Elizabeth, and me. We are moving — out of Ruston.
The destination: Pineville/Alexandria, Elizabeth’s hometown.
After three years of service to the readers here in Ruston, I have accepted a job at The Town Talk in Alexandria as assistant metro editor.
Personally this was a tough decision for me. First of all, I don’t like change. I’m a rather mundane, routine-oriented person. Change scares me. So moving two hours south is not a particularly appealing proposition.

Amber Taylor was home with her 3-year-old daughter at her trailer in Linville, across from the old Linville High School, when she began to hear the severe weather.
Taylor’s daughter was taking a nap when the system began to hit the area, but Amber Taylor picked her daughter up and brought her into a closet in the interior of the home.
Taylor said shortly after entering the closet, the severe wind began to pound the area.

Police Jury has our attention

• Do what is best for the people they represent;
• Be good stewards of the taxpayer’s money; and
• Don’t take advantage of their position for personal gain.
The Lincoln Parish Police Jury has placed itself in a position to do all three — and in the process set an example for other Juries to follow.
The Police Jury’s Personnel Committee — chair Joyce Huntington, and members Terry Knowles, Jody Backus, Joe Henderson, Roy Glover, Charles Owens and Don Hammons — is currently updating and expanding its manual for personnel management.

A fascination with tornadoes

Yet for those who have heard the train-like rumble of a tornado passing nearby, it’s a different story. I remember watching a news report of a guy who had been though a tornado. He said it didn’t sound like a train to him, “there was no whoo-whoo sound.” But he did say he remembered thinking there was no way the would survive the fury that surrounded him.
I was reminded again of my fascination with tornadoes

Remembering ‘Coach Rob’

That’s why, on Saturday, the two former defensive backs made a return trip to north Louisiana to pay a visit to “Coach Rob” and tell them just how much they loved him.
Haynes and Walls didn’t just speak for themselves and how much Eddie Robinson had meant to them, but they were actually speaking in behalf of countless number of players and others whose lives—on and off of the field, were influenced by one of sports’ most beloved personalities.
Walls drove from Dallas, Haynes from Atlanta.
