Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

I’ll be honest. I don’t pay my bills online. I don’t have a debit card. I don’t know how to check my bank balance using the World Wide Web.
Other than years of habit using stamps and envelopes, I have no idea why I evidently continue to presume the U.S. Postal Service is more reliable and secure than the Internet. I’m open to being persuaded otherwise. Ruston’s Department of Light and Power might just be the folks to win me over.

Louisiana Tech has faced some of the top offensive players in the country this year.
The Lady Techsters (9-19, 4-11 C-USA) will see the nation’s second-leading scorer as the Florida International University Panthers (12-16, 6-9 C-USA) come to the Thomas Assembly Center for a 6:30 tipoff tonight on Senior Night.
FIU senior guard Jerica Coley enters the TAC averaging 29.6 points per game, which trails only Baylor point guard Odyssey Sims (30.2), and needs only 37 more points to eclipse the 3,000-point plateau in her collegiate career.

He has more than earned his place beside those of former Bulldogs’ stars Karl Malone, Leon Barmore and Jackie Moreland.
