BATON ROUGE – Recent cold weather in Louisiana has caused lawns to go mostly dormant.
If you see green plants in the lawn right now, it’s probably the first flush of winter weeds such as annual bluegrass, chickweed and lawn burweed, said LSU AgCenter turf specialist Ron Strahan.
“Now is a good time to apply selective herbicides like atrazine and Trimec to the lawn to kill these young actively growing weeds,” Strahan said.

BATON ROUGE– When Alexandra Arceneaux crossed the stage with her service dog, Mishka, at the LSU College of Agriculture commencement ceremony on Dec. 16 at the Maddox Fieldhouse, the crowd erupted in applause. To say Arceneaux’s journey to graduation had obstacles is to understate her struggle.
Arceneaux, of Bogalusa, came to LSU in 2008, but before she could finish her degree, she developed Neuromyelitis optica, a condition that left her paralyzed from the shoulders down.

After the completion of the St. Francis School eighth-grade volleyball games, the student body was treated to an entertaining afternoon with eighth-grade girls playing against their mothers. Girls won two sets, moms won one set.
