School bus safety is a must

We didn’t even know they were gone, but here they are, back on the road.
Big yellow school buses are up and down every street, lane, drive, circle and highway — and they’re carrying some very precious cargo.
In Lincoln Parish, we are fortunate to have a sheriff’s office who understands the importance of school bus safety — not only for passengers, but for drivers as well. Which is why Public Inforamtion Officer Chad Alexander has recently put out a notice reminding drivers to diligently obey all traffic laws when approaching a school bus.

Being alert to a friend in need

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Last week I said undue worry could lead to depression and perhaps worse. This was prompted by the death of an actor. I wrote words of warning. Many sent me kind comments. I do repeat that some worry can be good. It can keep us aware. Yet too much can be harmful. If we care for one another by being alert and help them, we should.
Sometimes worry keeps us on our toes. Yet we should notice excessive worry in friends. If worry mushrooms in someone, the impact can be devastating. I wish that you and I would be more alert to others. (Maybe we should visit and not just send text messages.)

Thanking God for Lincoln Parish

in

I am thankful to have had the privilege of serving the people of Lincoln Parish, as Ruston City Marshal, since being elected in 1981, 33 year ago. I think it’s time to retire. I praise God for allowing me to continue as His elected official.  I am convinced that it is God who advances men to their positions. I was elected in 1981 to serve out the unexpired term of the late Marshal Charles Humphries. I ran without opposition for the next 5 (6-year) terms.  I don’t boast in this, I give God the credit and Blessings.

With fall camp wrapping up, Tech will rest up over the weekend and come back Monday to prepare for the season-opening game at No. 3 Oklahoma.
Defensive coordinator Manny Diaz was initially pleased with the defense’s efforts in the scrimmage but knows there is still work to be done.

CONWAY, Arkansas — Louisiana Tech came up with two equalizers in the match to come away with a 2-2 draw against Central Arkansas Friday night at the Bill Stephens Soccer Complex in the season opener.
Typically both teams play more defensive to start off the new year but both were on point in the attacking third early.
UCA (0-0-1) quickly got on the scoreboard first in the sixth minute as a cross in front of the net found Allie Coleman who was able to clip the ball before goalkeeper Kylee Seto could get to it.
