There’s nothing better for Lincoln Parish football fans than spending Saturdays at Joe Aillet Stadium.
And now Sunday’s should be exciting as ever as an influx of Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University athletes have moved on to the NFL.
Tech had three players drafted this year, the first time that’s happened since 1993 when four Bulldogs were selected, including offensive lineman Willie Roaf in the first round by the New Orleans Saints.
As the economy continues to suffer, everyone has to tighten their belts and seriously consider every purchase they make. On Friday and Saturday, many purchases will be a little easier on the pocketbook thanks to the annual Louisiana State Sales Tax Holiday.
Louisiana Peach Festival attendee numbers were down this year as compared to 2012, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some sweet news the Fest brought to Lincoln Parish this year.
The 2013 Peach Festival pumped approximately $2.7 million into the Lincoln Parish economy. Figures released by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, the organization that produces the festival, show that while this year’s festival attendance at 15,524 was down from 2012, those attending opened their pocketbooks and brought Monday into the parish.
