NEW ORLEANS — Top-seeded Alabama State held on to defeat Grambling State in an extra-inning scorefest Monday as the Southwestern Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament opened play at the Urban Youth Academy’s Wesley Barrow Stadium.
It was a chess match of a game, as the Hornets led off the bottom of the 11th inning with a double by Richard Amion, who advanced to third base on a groundout. Grambling then intentionally walked a pair of batters before pitcher Issac O’Bear walked in the game-winning run that gave Alabama State the 11-10 victory.

Giving back help to help St. Jude

Like children across the country — and even right here at home in Lincoln Parish — Josh Sanderson knows what it’s like to have your world turned upside down by cancer.
At only 3 years old, Sanderson was diagnosed with cancer and told that St. Jude Children’s Research hospital would be his best chance of survival.
“We immediately hit the road and got into Memphis in the middle of the night,” Sanderson said. “They were waiting there for us to come in. At 3 I didn’t realize the seriousness of the situation, but I knew that these people treated me and my family incredibly.”

Arrington, Briana.jpg

I’m 28 years old. I’ll be 29 Sept. 4. Would you say I’m too young for Botox?
Some might say no.

House will debate bill to save Sparta

Strides made in supply initiative

The Louisiana House is expected to debate a bill on Thursday that, if approved, could be the next step in a long-talked about project of piping water from Lake D’Arbonne to Ruston and Farmerville as an alternative source to the Sparta Aquifer.
Senate Bill 430, by West Monroe Sen. Mike Walsworth, allows the state to sell acreage in the Old D’Arbonne State Park in Farmerville to the Union-Lincoln Regional Water Supply Initiative as the site of a water treatment plant. The property would be sold at its $65,000 appraised value.
