Tech, GSU: Dual victories

“It was an extremely hard-fought, tough game,” said Bulldogs’ coach Derek Dooley. “We were in a battle all night and I want to commend coach (Mike) Lucas and his team for the tremendous effort they gave us. It was as tough a game as we’ve been in this year.”
Tech held an early 7-0 lead, later went up 21-10 and had an eight-point (31-28) advantage late in the third quarter before wrapping up the victory on a helmet-crashing 23-yard touchdown run by junior running back Daniel Porter later in the same period.

Gallery to make festive debut

Having viewed the interior during phases of construction, Art Innovations, with its expansive walls, high ceilings and large storefront windows, is an excellent space for a proper gallery. And with the innovative, forward thinking Cochran brings, it should prove to be a must-see shop. The open space features an indoor sunken garden centered around a live dogwood tree.

Earmark gives needed aid to Even Start

Since 1994, the Even Start family literacy program has worked to break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy by improving the educational opportunities of low-income families.
Although there are few programs more fundamentally deserving of state and federal funding, this initiative has endured severe cuts for years.
U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander did his part to help reverse that trend recently. A $200,000 federal earmark he requested through the U.S. Department of Education is coming through just in time to save Even Start.

Centerpoint’s tailgating tent included a birthday banner for Brent, but he’ll receive even more birthday wishes today.
“We’ll have a party for him tomorrow,” Lance Colvin said. “He’s a big Tech football fan, and this is were he wanted to be on his birthday.”
There were 15-20 Centerpoint employees helping young Brent celebrate his birthday.
“We have that number of people out here every game,” Lance Colvin said. “It’s just a good chance to get together, have fun and enjoy Tech football.”

But here’s what that unit did to make the weekend after an open date all that much easier for Dooley and his ‘Dogs to endure:

• Lineman Kwame Washington blocked a 42-yard field goal attempt by the Lions’ Jeff Turner and Weldon Brown picked it up and zipped 50 yards for a 28-20 Bulldogs’ lead at 2:01 of the second quarter.

These books are worth a read or two

As an elementary school girl, my prized possession was my boxed set of Little House on the Prairie books. I also had a deep affection for the Anne of Green Gables series. Mom still has that set of Little House books, which I fully intend to bestow upon a lucky reader of my family’s next generation.

Don’t forget, kids need us

Now that they have a new coach, newfound discipline and two wins under their belts, the team seems to be on the rebound.
The scenario illustrates the vital importance of family, school and community support of students.

Band leads beat

“We’ve been working a long time to get ready for this,” Moss said. “We started in late July just working on the basics. We’ve been working on the show about three weeks now.
Much like the Bearcats football team, the band has been hampered by the storms named Gustav and Ike.
“The weather has made it real tough trying to get ready,” Moss said. “There was nearly one whole week we lost. I guess that over the last four weeks, we’ve been able to get in about two and a half weeks’ worth of work.
