GSU still has a super grid season

Yes, your team lost 42-31 to Jackson State University in Saturday afternoon’s Southwestern Athletic Conference championship game at Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala.
But that definitely shouldn’t take a thing away from an outstanding season for one of the nation’s most famous and successful programs.
After the struggles in the 2006 season, anything that this year’s team did can be chalked up as a major plus.

Santa Claus is coming to town

Everyone knows at least this tiny chunk of the poem written by Clement Clarke Moore in 1822. And most everyone can relate to the excitement of Christmas Eve and waiting for that “jolly old elf” to unload his bag of Christmas goodies. I can recall being told the story of Santa’s arrival in a number of my elementary schools classrooms, at the library and even at home. I remember daydreaming about what he would look like, if he really had reindeer and if they could really fly.
Fast forward to today. Does Santa exist?
I can’t say, and I’m pretty sure it isn’t even for me to decide.

La. highway tells region's unique story

Road trips, vacations and relocations always end up being told time and again in words and pictures. Maybe it’s the romance of the road, the freedom and possibility of the open highway or the mystery of not quite knowing what to expect around the next bend.
Many roads themselves have their own stories, just waiting to be discovered.
Volunteers in Dubach are delving into the story of a local rural highway with its own unique history. Louisiana highway 151 wanders from Calhoun northwest to Downsville, dips south through Dubach and continues southwest to its end in Arcadia.

Committee must hammer out trash plan

What we need from the Police Jury’s Solid Waste and Recycling Committee is a comprehensive, detailed plan for trash collection in the parish. To do that they must meet as a committee and hash out the actual details for a comprehensive plan. That hasn’t happened in the last 3 years.
We watch as they consider more Dumpsters, mull over the landfill and deal with other business, but they never pull out a map, spread it on the table and roll up their sleeves for
a true solution.

Kids create holiday tales

Ryan Sorensen, 9
“I wrote about Santa almost missing our house because he had several problems. He got stuck in my friend’s chimney because he ate too many pralines. Santa is as big as a snow globe.”
Maliyah Woodard, 8
“If I could give the perfect gift, it would be family to anyone who doesn’t have one. If they don’t have a family, sometimes they don’t have a home. But if they have a family, they will be safe in their home.”
Samantha Akers, 8

Tech offers new certification

“It’s really for students in any area that have a requirement to keep information secure, to have a secure network,” Lumpkin said. “This training will help them in how to do that process. There are a lot of different areas that would have an interest in information assurance.”
He said through the courses and the Center for Information Assurance, those involved in the cyber warfare center at Barksdale, as well as personnel in the Air Force and cyber security, would have an interest in the training.

Lady Techsters fall to MSU, 63-50

“Our youth is showing on offense,” said head coach Chris Long. “We’ve got to replace Whitney (Jones, who is out for the season with knee injury) and find some other guards to step up for us.
“It’s just going to take some time.”
Unfortunately, time is short in this particular week, what with four games to have been held by the time nationally ranked LSU leaves from the TAC on Sunday afternoon. The Techsters will meet the Lady Tigers starting at 2 p.m. to end one of the toughest weeks in the program’s history, one that began last Saturday with a 67-62 loss to Southern Mississippi.

Help students make the most of their break

And that’s important for their development. Teaching kids early that time off doesn’t necessarily mean time wasted is valuable for later life. Adults know that a weekend off from work often means a weekend at work in the yard, around the house, spent going through financial information or handling other duties associated with being a responsible individual.
That’s key. Responsibility means teaching children that breaks like this are the time to write those book reports due soon after the start of the year.
