Handshake Recycling is a business that will put a recycling bin outside a business for employees to use and will pick up recyclable materials as needed. However, Jones said they do not pay people for the recycled material.

Autrey, Terrie NEW 13.jpg

During the past two weeks, I have seen Christmas Spirit poured out on DART from all over this community. I have watched as so many different people and groups stepped out to support families they had never even met before.
The Lady Techsters Basketball Team donated five basketballs autographed by the players. Boys and Girls Club brought us some extra gifts they had received, for our children.
The HELP Agency sent along food and toys that they wanted to share. Cook Baptist Church made candy packets and bagged them up for our families.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky got back on track Sunday.
Bria Goss scored a career-high 23 points and had eight rebounds to lead the sixth-ranked Wildcats to a 109-46 rout of Grambling State.
The Wildcats (12-1), coming off a 69-61 loss to No. 2 Duke, led from start and were never threatened. Grambling State was without coach Pat Bibbs, who was recovering from surgery, and dressed seven players.
“I told the team during warmups that we were coming off a loss and it was an important game,” Goss said. “We came out (early) and set the tone.”

Payback can be served one month, one year or even five years later.
In Louisiana Tech’s case, the Bulldogs will seek payback for two exits from the NCAA Tournament in the 1980s by Oklahoma, including the 1985 Sweet Sixteen when Karl Malone and Co. were eliminated on the Sooners last second shot in overtime by Wayman Tisdale.
Tech faces OU in its final game of the 2013 calendar year at 7 p.m. tonight inside the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Okla.
