Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

In today’s media-driven society there isn’t a day that goes by when people of all ages are not impacted by technology.
After an interesting email landed in my inbox earlier this week my interest was piqued.
The email began, “With a technology-driven society and many families being two-income families, many lament that family time such as the family supper have become things of the past. Some argue that this lack of family time directly affects how children are raised and is hurting in their development.”
There was other information further down in the email, but you get the jist.

EL PASO, Texas — Last year in the Don Haskins Center, Louisiana Tech and UTEP were in an offensive battle with the Miners coming out on top.
On Thursday night, it was the other way around on both accounts as the Bulldogs flexed their muscle on defense holding the Miners to just 12 second half points on their way to a 58-45 road win in front of 8,653 in attendance.
Tech (11-4, 2-0 Conference USA) was as flawless as you can be on defense with UTEP (10-5, 2-1 C-USA) making just five second half field goals and outrebounding the bigger Miners roster by two.

Walker attempts to resolve issues

in

Ruston utility customers who normally would have received their bills around the end of December will have to wait about three more weeks for the statements to arrive.
That’s because the city’s computer systems crashed in early December, causing the loss of about six weeks of data, Mayor Ronny Walker said Wednesday. No customer information was compromised in what he called “a crash and corruption” of the systems.
The billing delay will not result in higher than usual bills for affected customers, Walker said.
“The bill will look like a normal bill, just three weeks late,” he said.
