Regents get grand tour of Tech, GSU

Roland Toups, committee chair of the Board of Regents, said he was impressed with Tech’s successes.
“I’m so glad the rest of the Regents have gotten a chance to meet (Tech President Dan Reneau) and his staff,” Toups said. “I think Tech has set standards we all can imitate.”

Recycling rolls back around

We salute Trailblazer for spearheading the drive with community-wide recycling centers which include a variety of recyclable products.
Further credit should be given Trailblazer for the emphasis placed on recycling centers at schools.
What a great opportunity for companies or organizations to fund those school sites for $500 for which Trailblazer will erect a sign giving credit to the sponsor.
We encourage area companies and organizations to support that idea for a number of reasons.

Time to get Ruston High tickets

Tables for six are available for $180 or $30 per seat. Seats are limited.
The fact that a lot of members of the Ruston High School Alumni Association have put in many hours of hard work on this event should be reason enough to honor that effort with our attendance, but I have even more reason to encourage not only RHS alumni but others to attend.
The highlight of this luncheon will be the presentation of awards to highly accomplished graduates and educators.

’Cats, Rams: big battle at James

It’s a game that will not only receive local coverage from north Louisiana media outlets, but also regionally; the Cox Sports Television Network will beam its cameras into the facility for live action that will stretch from east Texas to northern Florida, the telecast being available to an estimated 1.5 million viewers.
“Our No. 1 goal is to go out and win this game,” said Ruston head coach Billy Laird. “The fact that the game is going to be televised live and all is nice and great recognition for the teams, schools and cities, but our main focus is to get a win.”

Hinton, Bearcats kick Franklin 38-6

“What a performance he put on tonight,” Ruston coach Billy Laird said. “I don’t know that I’ve even seen a performance from a high school kicker like that. What a great weapon he is for us.”
With Ruston clinging to a 21-6 lead near the end of the third quarter, the Bearcats faced a fourth-and-27 at the Winnsboro 35-yard line. Laird called a timeout to discuss the team’s options.
“He (Laird) was just standing there, thinking,” Hinton said of his coach during the timeout. “He finally said, ‘Field goal. I was surprised.’”

Adults, youth can conserve resources

Whereas educating young people is a great way to encourage the formation of good habits, it is also good for adults to set an example. Among some of the actions adults can take to conserve the area’s resources are the following:
• Put grease in a bag and dispose of it rather than pour it down the sink where it might harden and cause drainage problems;
• Plant trees in places where they will not grow into or break and fall into the path of a power line;
• When leaving the home, do not turn the air conditioner off, but place it on a low setting to save electricity;
