Bulldogs facing tough test

C-USA Championship will be home contest for Marshall
112413 Tech Brice fumble return C.jpg

It’s the goal the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs have had since Day 1.
Tech’s football team knew being in the race for the Conference USA championship would mean holiday bowling for the Bulldogs, but the conference title is still their main goal.
The Bulldogs (8-4 overall, 7-1 in C-USA) will get their chance at 11 a.m. Saturday when Tech plays at Marshall (11-1, 7-1) in the C-USA Championship game.
A record-setting 76-31 win over Rice last weekend gives Tech plenty of momentum heading into the championship contest.

Alex Hamilton scores 30 to lead Tech
120214 Tech Kyser C.jpg

NATCHITOCHES — With the way Louisiana Tech and Northwestern State have played against each other the past five years, it was no surprise that the sixth time was any different.
The prolific guards on both teams was on display once again, but one notable difference was the foul trouble of Kenneth Smith who missed over 10 minutes of action in the second half.
It was then that the Bulldogs turned to Alex Hamilton at the point and rode his back to the tune of 30 points to take down the Demons, 99-88, on Tuesday night in Prather Coliseum.

Because of this, December has been designated as National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. Many organizations have discussed in great detail the need to avoid drinking and driving. However, as arrest reports and headlines point out, drugs have become a serious issue across the country and right here in our community.

in
Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

I’ve always wondered how reindeer fly. Do they have invisible propellers hidden under their hooves so as to stay aloft? Or are there teams of tiny elf volunteers holding the reindeer up as they jet Santa around the world on Christmas Eve?
Somehow the magical journey of the reindeer reminds me of my young friend Laura. She sings in the church choir, works hard, really loves her family, plays a mean game of tennis and most importantly — at least for these musings — she’s a community volunteer.

Congress’ actions questioned

in

You know I like a good joke ... except when it isn’t funny. Example: Have you heard the one about how the U.S. Congress is planning on spending tens-of-millions of taxpayer dollars to sue the president over immigration; which by the way is the same immigration cause that has languished in the House as a bipartisan bill only needing a vote to be called by John Boehner to become the law of the land.
