More area traffic tickets will be issued in Union and Lincoln parishes to create this added revenue.
Fully comprehending the current financial burdens of the area, I can understand Belton’s decision to use this program. However, I am not sure that turning public safety concerns into a game of “who-can-issue-the-most-tickets?” is the way to go.

Gridiron Bulldogs focus on humility, hard work

in

Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz has been challenging his team to stay humble, stay hungry and always keep working. That has been the message delivered to the team throughout spring practice including in the two-hour practice session at Joe Aillet Stadium Wednesday afternoon.
