Autrey, Terrie NEW 13.jpg

The HELP Agency sent along food and toys that they wanted to share. Cook Baptist Church made candy packets and bagged them up for our families.

Payback can be served one month, one year or even five years later.
In Louisiana Tech’s case, the Bulldogs will seek payback for two exits from the NCAA Tournament in the 1980s by Oklahoma, including the 1985 Sweet Sixteen when Karl Malone and Co. were eliminated on the Sooners last second shot in overtime by Wayman Tisdale.
Tech faces OU in its final game of the 2013 calendar year at 7 p.m. tonight inside the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Okla.

Mills, a 6-5, 305-pounder, is already being regarded as one of the league’s top first-year offensive interior performers.
The Napoleonville product has become a young monster on the midway for the Chicago Bears.
