Tech: A Hollywood ending

With their team trailing 31-28, Jenkins and Livas hooked up for a 68-yard touchdown pass that powered Tech (7-4, 6-2) to a 35-31 victory in Las Cruces.
Fittingly, it was the first receiving touchdown of the season by a wide receiver at Tech and couldn’t have happened at a better time.
“That was the time to pull out the trick play to the wide out,” said Tech coach Derek Dooley. “We might run it again the next game.”

I went on to tell her about the friendships I’ve forged in the last three years with several women who live from Wisconsin and Portland, Ore., to the United Kingdom.

Peach Festival shines in national light

With a plethora of festivals in our state alone, not to mention in the entire United States, the fact that the Peach Festival has been singled out shows how special it is.
The family-oriented festival offers something for everyone, and this year’s scheduled change made it more visitor-friendly.
Hosting the festival from Friday-Sunday, rather than the Thursday-Saturday schedule of years past, was a good decision by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, which puts on the festival.

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.

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.
