Tech ties help bring business to parish

When selecting a college, a student is choosing to invest his or her time, money and future expectations into a specific university and its educational standards.

We got Yogi in 1991. She was our pick from the litter of nine Yellow Lab puppies crawling around in a small pen like a bunch of red wiggler worms. My wife and daughter got to make the selection of which puppy we would take home, but Dad got to pick the name. Yogi just looked like a Yogi!
