An example of bad fans

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

“ … whoever gloats over disaster will not go unpunished.” (Proverbs 17:5)
The other day sports fans were told a story that is in my judgment repulsive. It perhaps has a broader application than to those who follow sports and football in particular. Your writer heard this on our local ESPN Sports radio station.

Classes focus on literacy

4-H
Yes, it’s that time of year again for Grambling Middle School 4-H Club to venture out into the community, within the school and with nonprofit organizations to assist, experiment, explore, share and participate.
Even though we say, it’s that time of year for Grambling Middle 4-H to venture out, many of our members have been engaged in activities throughout the summer. The title wasn’t necessarily headed “4-H” but the participants were members of our 4-H club. In late July, our community service volunteer, Gary Dupree, hauled several red, vine-ripe, sweet watermelons that were distributed to businesses, community supporters, faculty, principal and 4-H members to enjoy. In addition, we observed that the birds and deer also enjoyed them.

Louisiana Tech to offer international studies minor

in

Louisiana Tech University students have the option of minoring in a field that looks at the global economy.
The international studies minor is open to any student who wishes to prepare to compete in a global marketplace. Don Kaczvinsky, dean of the College of Liberal Arts, said this minor will help students gain a broader and richer perspective of problems in the 21st century.
“The international studies minor was started to offer students a means to understand the issues and concerns in today’s global culture,” Kaczvinsky said. “We want students to see how countries and people are interconnected.”
