Multiple wins sew up quilt fund-raiser

The two quilts were composed of block patterns each individually designed by one of the 39 geometry students. The creations were diverse, including everything from angels and airplanes to animals and spiritual symbols.
All proceeds from the tickets, which cost $2 apiece, will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital — the annual quilt fund-raiser recipient selected by Hyam’s students.
Kaitlin Farris was one of the students who voted to donate the funds to St. Jude’s.

Album, band back on scene

“Two songs that are on the (new) album were recorded, but we decided not to put them on the first album. The other two are scratch tracks.
The music that’s with them isn’t meant to be kept; it was suppose to be re-recorded, but we forgot about it.”
Fredrickson said the band forgot about the tracks, and when they were discovered, the members decided to stick them on the new album.
“It’s kind of cool,” he said. “We figured that people who buy this would be interested in the scratch tracks.”
He added that the new songs seemed to fit in well with the record.

Immigration concerns farmers

Over the last few months Congress has debated the controversial issue of immigration reform.
The U.S. House approved a measure that would make illegal immigration a felony, while calling for construction of a 700-mile-long fence along the U.S.-Mexico border to stem the tide of illegals.
A compromise bill in the U.S. Senate stalled prior to the Easter recess.
The issue of immigration reform has prompted protests by Hispanic groups across the country.
Law enforcement officials said making illegal immigration a felony would tax their resources beyond limits.

Arrest warrant issued for shooter

The shooting incident occurred around 10:17 p.m. on April 9 at the intersections of Duque Drive and McAllister Street, near Martin Luther King Drive.
Kenneth Smith, 18, of Ruston, was standing next to the bus stop with several friends when a white vehicle containing four black males pulled up.
Smith was shot in the right lower leg, and he was taken to Lincoln General Hospital, where he was treated and released later that night.
“Based on the information we have, Dickson is the only one who fired a weapon,” Hawkins said.

LPSO stats show crime rates similar

The statistics do not include crimes within local municipalities or on university campuses.
Those statistics are reported separately and will be reported at a later date.
There were two rapes reported last year and none reported in 2004 while aggravated assaults increased slightly from 18 in 2004 to 20 in 2005.
“We are happy to see that our violent crime rate is still very low,” Sheriff Mike Stone said.
“The absence of any murder or robbery cases shows Lincoln Parish is a very safe community.”
