DEAR ABBY

Boyfriend would rather party with friends than stay home

DEAR ABBY: I have been dating my boyfriend just over a year. We live and work together, which I enjoy. He, on the other hand, expressed from day one that all he asks for out of our relationship is “space.” I’m fine with that, but now it seems he needs more and more space.

Then I noticed. The little white car ahead of the truck in front of me was situated a good ways from the light.
“Oh, goodness,” I thought. “The light’s never gonna change.”

Leads Techsters to two wins

RUSTON – After registering three goals and helping Louisiana Tech to two home conference wins this past week, freshman forward Connor Barker was chosen as the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Week.
The striker went into week nine having seen action in just seven games (one start) with an average of 31 minutes per match and just one total goal to her credit. She ended up starting both matches against UTEP and UTSA and was a huge reason why LA Tech was able to come away with two important league victories.
