GRAMBLING — It’s been an undeniably impressive first three seasons for Grambling State University football coach Broderick Fobbs.

The Tigers hope to give their leader his first SWAC championship at 3 p.m. Saturday when they kick off the conference title game at NRG Stadium in Houston.
That game will be televised live on ESPNU.

FARMERVILLE — A tainter gate on the T.T. Fields Memorial Spillway were opened Tuesday morning to allow the draw down of Lake D’Arbonne to remain around five feet below pool stage.
A storm system that moved into Union Parish early Monday had dumped three inches of rainfall across the parish by early Tuesday afternoon.
Bruce Hampton, president of the Bayou D’Arbonne Lake Watershed Commission, said the decision to allow water to move from the lake into Bayou D’Arbonne was made to allow the lake to stay at the level set before the draw down began in early September.

Amaya, Derek.jpg

Grambling resident Phyllis Miller hit the proverbial nail on the head with Grambling’s Legends Square.
The 9.2 acre economic development project off RWE Jones Street not only represents the future of Grambling’s economy, but also harkens back to an earlier time in Grambling’s history.
“At one time, Grambling gained independence through entrepreneurship,” she said. “Legends Square brings us back full circle.”
