D.A.R.E. to keep kids off drugs

About a year ago, I discovered the essay I’d written in the fifth grade about my experience as part of the D.A.R.E. program. Reading through it I could see that of course we learned about drugs and how they could adversely affect our lives, and also back then our D.A.R.E. instructor focused on teaching us tactics related to resisting peer pressure and avoiding “youth gangs.” We also learned about self-esteem and practiced saying no.

Tech plans research park and facility

Guice said Tech needs this research park to keep graduates and teach their students.
“This is important for Louisiana Tech because it strengthens our research program and allows us to work with companies who will want to partner with Tech,” he said. “It gives our students a place to get internships and our graduates a place to get jobs.”
As far as the region is concerned, Guice said the economic impact to the community would be great.

Techsters dual with ULM

“We want to come out and play extremely hard and give a good, intense effort for the entire game.”
And Long puts a special emphasis on “entire game” after witnessing a sloppy first half and then a solid second half during a 64-61 home setback to Kansas State University earlier this week.

CVB plans presented at Rotary Club

“Mike Walpole is working on the drawings for the building,” Edmiston said. “We’ve got a couple of ideas about a location, but nothing firm yet.”
Another topic discussed by Edmiston was the need for a large conference center.
“We need to expand our conferencing space,” Edmiston said. “We need a big room, with breakout space; we want to increase the number of meetings and conferences here.”
Edmiston said conferences, along with youth sporting events, are two areas that could be used to grow the Lincoln Parish economy.

Knight: 876 wins, counting

With nearly 7,100 fans watching on at the Thomas Assembly Center, on one of the most special nights in Louisiana Tech University athletic history, Texas Tech held on for a 64-59 victory over the Bulldogs.
Make that 876 victories now for Knight, the same as the late and great University of Kentucky baron named Rupp. Both are now tied for second place on the all-time win chart for NCAA Division I men’s basketball, a mere three shy of Dean Smith.
It will be only a matter of time before Knight puts a check mark by that achievement.

Those who have been out working for years but are unsatisfied with their jobs or paychecks can obtain training that will qualify them for another field within a short period of time. Younger people who have little interest in pursuing an education beyond high school might discover a passion for one of these hands-on skills if they enroll in a core curriculum class.

A second look at pageants

The 2006 Mr. and Miss Lincoln Center winners were named this week, and two pre-school students went home with trophies and $50 gift certificates to Toys R Us. Twelve boys and girls dressed in their Sunday Best were escorted by family members across Lincoln Center School’s decorated gymnasium Tuesday morning only to take a seat before a crowd of parents, students, teachers and other community members including school board member George Mack. Each small child took his turn to stand up as the announcer read off his favorite teachers, colors and television programs.

Tech to hire firm to restructure athletics

“This plan includes specific strategies for the athletics department,” Reneau said. “Our storied athletics program will write new chapters of success in this initiative as champions who compete with integrity.”
Reneau’s comments come just one day after the university fired football coach Jack Bicknell following a season that saw the Bulldogs lose 10 games for the first time in school history.
