Supporting child support

August is wrapping up and although this month represents many things — the end of summer, the beginning of school — what many people may not realize is that August is National Child Support Month.
Unfortunately, in our society child support has become a necessity to ensure single parents are compensated for the care of their children.

Louisiana Tech’s annual Happening event in Monroe used to be a formal affair.
But as four Tech coaches joined athletics director Tommy McClelland on stage last Friday during Happening XXXIII, it seemed more like a talk show with McClelland doing his best Johnny Carson impersonation.
Instead of the coaches taking turns making a speech to the crowd, McClelland hosted a question and answer session for the coaches with queries turned in by audience members.

Four Lady Techsters made the most of their opportunities on Tuesday night by scoring their first career goals that aided in Louisiana Tech’s 8-0 victory over Louisiana College at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex.
It was the third match for Tech (2-0-1) in five days, so resting bodies and giving quality playing time to those who have had limited minutes so far was a top priority for head coach Kevin Sherry.
