Tech, Illinois to team up

For the second consecutive year, Heart of Dallas Bowl rivals will spend time volunteering at CitySquare.

There is a huge chunk of land in the middle of Louisiana that covers all or parts of seven parishes encompassing some 600,000 acres and 944 square miles. As sought after as land is in the state offering good hunting opportunities — some groups are willing to pay big bucks for private leases — this particular hunk of real estate is open to the public free of charge for hunting or other recreational endeavors.
This gem in the piney woods is the Kisatchie National Forest and from reports we’ve received already this deer season, some real trophy bucks are being taken from these lands.

Type O, B blood at critical levels

Christmas is the season of giving.
And what’s more important than the gift of life?
It’s a fairly easy gift to provide. This Christmas season, Type O negative and B negative blood supply levels in our region are at an extremely low level.
