NEW ORLEANS (AP) — As much as Grambling could have used a morale-boosting triumph in the Bayou Classic, Dray Joseph and the Southern Jaguars were not going to let that happen.
Joseph and Lee Dross connected for three touchdowns and Southern defeated Grambling 40-17 Saturday.
The result left the Tigers (1-11, 0-8 Southwestern Athletic Conference) with the program’s worst-ever overall record to close a season which will be remembered more for a mid-season player walkout than anything on the field.

Why we procrastinate with our money

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: A year ago, my husband and I sat down and set some financial goals. We wanted to get out of debt and start saving some money — neither of which we have ever done. A year later, we have not made any real progress. We have the income … we just have not seemed to make ourselves do it. Are we hopeless?
Answer: Not at all!
Your problem is that you’re human.
Fortunately, we’ve all been born with that limitation, so you aren’t any farther behind than the rest of us. But you do have some very human weaknesses that you’ll have to overcome if you are going to turn this ship around.

in
Conville, Bobby.jpg

Opening a savings account with your local bank may provide an easy way to put money away for safekeeping, but the thought of doing more can be tempting. While your money will earn a small rate of interest with a savings account, you may want to consider an “investing” program that can potentially earn more from the money you put away. If investing is something that piques your interest, but you’re not quite sure where to begin, consider two of the most basic types of investments — stocks and bonds.

Finding a new peace in life patterns

in
Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

Last month, I talked about how we all have patterns and habits in our lives that need healing. I talked about the revelation I had about the need to move out of God’s way, so God could change my life pattern of cramming too much into a small amount of time, rushing around and being late.

Irby, Marna.jpg

I lost November instead of December this year. When I got sick in Ruston last year and missed Christmas, I swore that would never happen again, so guess I got a jump on it this year and spent November in the hospital, and now I’m out and ready for Christmas.
I hope all you dear readers don’t abandon me because I’m old and have to get sick every winter.
Getting home from the hospital tonight, after bronchial pneumonia, I realized if I wrote my column now, I could meet my deadline, so here I am. I need to get my mind off my meds anyhow.
