While the 15th annual North Central Louisiana Arts Council Holiday Arts Tour is wrapping up for the year, the past three days have brought out area residents who seek to make a contribution to the local culture economy.
“I am an artist, and I enjoy looking at other artists’ works and try to support them as much as I can. I specifically went shopping for this event tonight,” said resident Nan Cole, who was shop hopping during the tour’s opening night in conjunction with the city of Ruston’s Main Street Open House. “I’m trying to get a little Christmas shopping done, and I love untraditional, hand-crafted gifts.”

How appropriate.
A game of this magnitude should have gone into overtime between Louisiana Tech University and Utah State University on Saturday.
The Aggies (9-2, 5-0) were presented with the “OT” prize with an edge-of-the-seats thriller for the 25,614 fans who assembled at Joe Aillet Stadium on a clear and gorgeous football-perfect afternoon.
A four-yard touchdown run by Kerwynn Williams on the Aggies’ first possession and on their second down of the extra period was the game-winner before Tech (9-2, 4-1) failed to match that score in four tries.

Weather? Perfect, with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-60’s.

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Louisiana Tech outshot, outrebounded and for the most part outplayed Mississippi State on Friday night, but in the end the Bulldogs turned two dozen Lady Techster turnovers into a victory, as State prevailed 57-55 before 1,420 fans at Humphrey Coliseum.
Tech (0-3) used its best 20 minutes of the season to build a 33-23 halftime lead but then faltered over the final half as the Lady Techsters committed 23 turnovers, including five in the final five minutes of play in a tight game.
