Tech slams Idaho with 70-28 WAC victory

If you were wondering if Louisiana Tech University’s point-crunching offense could reach even more uncharted territory, the answer was supplied at Joe Aillet Stadium on Saturday night.
Entering the game, the Bulldogs (6-1, 1-0) ranked No. 1 in the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision for scoring with a 53.8 average.
Big deal.
Tech surpassed that number in the first half in its Western Athletic Conference opener against the University of Idaho.

Mitchell responds to sign theft letter

in

I “used” to live in a neighborhood in Ruston where I had eggs thrown on my house the first few months.
Then about a year later, I had a mysterious fire to start in my unused garage (that was thankfully put out.)

Flournoy: Our core values ‘eroded’

in

The United States of America was founded on Judeo/Christian principles. Our forefathers had extraordinary, divine vision to write a well-defined constitution. It is more than 200 years old and is still pertinent in today’s world for America. Our forefathers expected generations to carry the torch for freedom throughout the centuries. Have we let them down? Most assuredly, YES. We have allowed the taking away of many of our freedoms, the creation of a top-heavy federal government and spending that jeopardizes our future, just to name a few of the ways we have let them down.

Time to get off the sidelines

Cox-Boniol,  Cathi.jpg

It started as another typical day.
I headed out the door for work, slid into the Jeep, and had the Elvis channel on Sirius cranked up. The opening strains of a new arrangement on an old favorite began. It was a cut from the soundtrack to Viva Elvis!, the fabulous Cirque du Soleil show that enjoyed a spectacular run at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. A smile began immediately as I anticipated the vocal beginning. I was ready to sing, and this was one that needed to come from the top of my lungs.

Don't forget to vote

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

In the number of years that this column has been written, one of the most predictable times that I receive comments is during election time, and particularly when there are matters on the ballot that are not particularly clear at first glance. This has been the case the last couple of weeks with the upcoming election.  I have received a large number of phone calls and emails asking that I explain some of the items to appear on the ballot, especially with early voting commencing.

Tech to offer new leadership class in winter

in

Louisiana Tech University will offer a new class this winter, Introduction to Leadership, to assist students in how to be professional and how to be a character-based leader.
Wayne Hogue, who joined Louisiana Tech this fall, will teach the class. He previously taught at Louisiana State University-Shreveport, where he was named Professor of the Year three times.
“It’s common knowledge that people are hired — and fired — because of the kind of person they are much more frequently than because of issues with skills, knowledge, abilities or even degree,” Hogue said. “Professionalism, character and leadership ability or potential encompass some of the most critical ‘fit’ traits in the work force today. That’s what this Introduction to Leadership class is about.”
