A plan to spread holiday cheer

A group of church members gathered Saturday to tie 7,500 bells with ribbons and informative door hangers listing special holiday sermons as well as regular church hours.
On Dec. 6 they will be affixed to every front door-knob in town. Congregation volunteers will split up to cover Ruston’s 217 subdivisions, which contain five to 117 houses each.
Seal said there are about 5,000 homes in the area and with the help of volunteer church members, the entire area should be covered in a matter of a few hours.

Tax bills a shock for some

The rise in property assessment values is the culmination of a four-year reappraisal project undertaken by Lincoln Parish Assessor Pam Jones’ office.
“Louisiana law requires that all parish assessors must complete reappraisal of all ‘real’ property in their parish at least once every four years,” Jones said, adding that the overall reappraisal process seems to show that Lincoln Parish has been spared the drastic declines in real estate values and poorly performing mortgages that have plagued some parts of the country.

’Dogs hold on for win

On the second snap from scrimmage on the ensuing possession, quarterback Ross Jenkins found Livas streaking down the left sideline for the score.
“It was all verticals and we had one crosser coming,” Jenkins said. “Coach said zone, look for the crosser. But they manned up and we were going to take a shot. They were blitzing and they pressed our receivers. (Livas) is the fastest guy we have, and I just threw it up and gave him a chance. He made the play.”
It was Tech’s first passing touchdown of the year to a wide receiver.

Beautification group needs residents’ help

He said he wants to delegate more and reach out to the community. If KLPB is successful in achieving those two goals, then the group most likely will increase its productivity and more residents will be aware of their efforts. That’s key to the future success of KLPB.
Everyone seems to be in agreement that the parish looks trashy and needs constant cleaning up. We all also seem to agree that everyone needs to pitch in to help keep our community looking tidy and welcoming.
The challenge comes when it’s time to organize these ideas and efforts and execute them.

Youth spread holiday

Rockett handed out awards for the best shoebox gift presentation, best decoration and for best spirit.
“Some of the children even donated $5 or $10 out of their monthly allowances to buy items for the gift boxes,” Rockett said. “It’s a small way to give back, but it’s a big gesture for these kids.”

Ah, the magic of cell phones

The cell phone wasn’t so popular, you know. In my Cro-Magnon days, the 1980s had several of us on the telephone. Parents of teens today will remember the rotary version (that’s not a club), and when we really went uptown, we were able to push square buttons that dialed faster. So, I tried it.

Tech goes after victory No. 7

“It would give us a winning season,” noted coach Derek Dooley. “That would be huge.
Because even though we are bowl eligible right now, it doesn’t mean we are guaranteed to be in one. We’ve got to be concerned more about going out and winning these last two games than about the bowl talk.”
Indeed, the bowl situation will take care of itself.
But victories in the final two games?
That’s another matter that will be decided strictly with what transpires on the field, not in some smoke-filled room with bowl representatives gathered around to evaluate candidates.
