Kavanaugh describes her designs as colorful, whimsical, retro and as being influenced by the 1950s and Austin, Texas, style. Some of her depictions include sock monkeys and cowboy boots.
In the past, Kavanaugh was primarily a watercolorist.
“I’ve grown up around (art),” she said. “It’s something I’ve always done.”

RHS takes high-tech angle in game filming

The Bearcats’ Class 5A Louisiana High School Association program has gone high-tech with its postgame and game-week analysis.
Prior to this season, the Booster Club and Lincoln Parish School Board provided the necessary funds for the team to purchase the $18,000 software program called Webb GAMEDAY.
Considered the “Cadillac” in its field, the program is designed to analyze on-the-field action, evaluate schemes and strategy, scout opponents and peruse techniques used by players and teams during the course of a game night.
