GRAMBLING — The U.S. Postal Service has nothing on the Grambling State University football team.

Field conditions made things tough on the Tigers, resulting in a low-scoring 7-0 win by the Black Team, which was comprised of most of GSU’s starters.

Utility bills back on schedule

in

All Ruston utility customers should now be getting their bills on time, with accurate readings and due dates, Mayor Ronny Walker said Friday.
Late charges, which were suspended in December when the city’s computer system crashed, will be reinstated April 1, he said.
