|Hall of Fame bedecks new museum|
This past weekend, a new set of inductees joined the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, whose new facility will be completed by the spring of next year in Natchitoches.
This year's class included Morten Andersen, Kyla Hall, Skipper Heard, Vaughan Johnson, Buford Jordan, Don Shows, Todd Walker and Slick Watts, all deserving selections.
That is outstanding for Louisiana and Natchitoches, the home site of the museum.
And it's a great tribute to athletes who not only thrilled sports fans in Louisiana, but all over the nation.
The Louisiana State Museum system is spearheading construction on the 27,500-square foot museum building on Front Street in the National Historic District of Natchitoches.
Construction began in 2008-09 with site demolition and preparation and continued last spring with utility relocation and drainage work along with the pilings and foundation work.
